Shoreditch Flat by Hoxton Square

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Curtain Rd, Hackney, England EC2A, United Kingdom

The Space

Rent this cool, light, airy one bedroom flat on Curtain Road in London's version of the Meat Packing District, but with a thousand years of history. (Shakespeare's Curtain Theatre was here.) Shoreditch is the neighborhood of musicians, artists, architects, photographers, and media types.

If you're an Every House member you'll be happy to know this flat is just around the corner from Shoreditch House.

Perfect for women visiting London, the flat is in a well-lit and always busy area. You'll feel safe coming in at any hour.

The flat is right in the midst of great clubs, pubs, and restaurants. The White Cube Gallery. Bottega Prelibata (amazing food, great wine, amazing people, exposed brick, warm ambiance. My favourite.) Tramshed (Mark Hix's hip steak and chicken place. A hulking great Damian Hurst towers over you while you eat.) The Columbia Road Flower Market (Live music, cool shops, great food, and East-end old-time marketeers shouting, "Two bunches for a fiver!!" in the most authentic cockney accents you'll ever hear.) Brick Lane Market. Spitalfields Market. Broadway Market.

Conveniently located between Old Street Tube, Shoreditch High Street Station, and Liverpool Street Station, this is the perfect location for sight-seeing in Central London, or for access to The City (London's Financial District.)

There's a double bed in the bedroom, and a comfortable high-quality sofa-bed in the living room, so the flat can sleep 4, in a pinch. This is a super flat in a super area for a super price.

Interaction with Guests

I'll meet you at the flat to give you the keys, and show you around. Do definitely text/call/email if you're running late. Please do dishes and strip the beds at checkout. And otherwise... have fun!

I have a full-time tenant in the flat until I get back from NYC this August (2014.) So feel free to book now. Summer sometimes fills up rather quickly! Thanks! -Lx

  • very central location if you are looking for Shoreditch hipness, lots of bars, restaurants, clubs around. Apartment does what it says on the tin and is surprisingly quiet in spite of the bustle around the place.

  • Me and my three friends stayed at the apartment of Lucy for two nights and had a really good time there! The apartment is very pretty, nicely decorated, and very clean. Lucy was a perfect host and provided really useful advices.
    The apartment is ideally located, the Shoreditch area is really authentic and very lively, with many things to do right outside the door, restaurants, bars, etc... (Unfortunately this also means it gets quite loud at night on weekends...)
    We would be happy to come back ! :)

  • Lucy's place was great, amazing! Location was pretty much perfect for what I was looking for, lots of shops, great cafe's and restaurants, and just a nice buzz about the neighborhood, really good youthful vibe. Lucy was great about sharing info about things to do, the good places to hangout, etc, it was like having a virtual tour guide for the area! Would definitely stay there again next time I go back, can't reccomend the place enough!

  • The apartment is extremely well situated if you want to be part of the buzz of East London. Lucy is incredibly helpful and accommodating in terms of check in time and leaving me with water and wine and bits & pieces in the fridge. A great experience!

  • Lucy's flat is in the heart of Shoreditch, full of shops, bars, restaurants, and galleries. Feels very safe any time of the day and night, and very well connected with various transport links. Lucy is a very welcoming host, and always answered quickly to any questions I had. Thank you.

  • Me and 3 friends stayed at Lucy's flat so we could easily go out in East London and spend the next day wandering around the Shoreditch area.

    Her flat is in such an ideal location! 2 minute walk from Old Street station and about a 20 minute walk to Liverpool Street/Spitalfields area. There's also an NCP at the end of the road that's £18 to park for 24 hours which came in handy for us!

    Lucy met us at her flat and was lovely and welcoming. She gave us a tour of the place, explained everything and gave us tips on great places to eat. The flat's really nice, everything was clean and all the bed sheets and towels had been freshly dry cleaned for us. The fridge had the essentials in like butter, milk, etc. so we didn't need to buy a whole new batch for just one night.

    All in all, a great experience for a first time AirBnb'er! Thanks Lucy :)

  • I really enjoyed my stay. Lucy is a very proactive and hospitable host and her apartment is all it says on the tin. Bright light, comfortable, clean, spacious and right in the middle of a buzzy part of London.

    Maybe only thing to say is to bring earplugs if you are a light sleeper and like the windows open!

    Will defo come again!

About
Hi. I'm an American actress & photographer. (And I'm about to start fund-raising for my first film.) For the past 9 years I've been living and working in London. Shoreditch is my hood, and it's the one place on the planet that feels like home. It's full of people who fill up frames, tell stories, and who spend a lot of time thinking "what if?" My kind of folks. My kind of neighborhood. I bet you'll like it too. -Lx
