About This Listing
Renting out my 2 bedroom/2bathroom flat in the heart of London. Seconds from Old Street Tube Station & right in the heart of Shoreditch.
I am an Easy going English chap - who likes good food, music & life.
Shoreditch I think is the best area in London - its vibrant, its full of life and there is a lot to see. It is a very welcoming area. But given that the flat is in Zone 1 - Central London it does not take long to get to any other part of London.
The Flat is equipped with Washer/Dryer, wifi, Kitchen, living room with TV & DVD player.
The neighborhood is very safe and very vibrant you will see all walks of interesting life in this part of London but you will feel very safe.
The Flat is a 5minute walk from Liverpool Street Station (serviced by Stansted Airport) & a 20 Second walk from Old Street Station.
It takes roughly 45mins-60mins to get to the Flat from Heathrow, Gatwick & Stansted Airport on Public Transport. Its 15mins from London CIty Airport in a Cab.
As Old Street is on the Northern Line the transport Links to the all of London in general are superb.
I'm a very chilled out person but please leave things how you found them.
If you would like me to show you around I would be happy to help out should I be free.
If you are a smoker please don't smoke in the flat - but please feel free to smoke on the private covered balcony outside.
Alex's flat was really (website hidden) and my friends rented the whole flat.very nice location.just near the old street (email hidden)ry easy to find.We really love the flat.the flat as the (website hidden) lovely.and there have everything .plz join it:)and thank u Alex!!
My friend and I rented the whole apartment for two weeks and had such a great time. The location is perfect, a few steps away from the tube station, good coffee and anything else you could possibly need. Surrounded by good restaurants and even better night life we found it very hard to have to leave at the end of our stay.
The apartment it self was clean, very spacious and the beds were exceptionally comfortable. Thanks for having us Alex, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Our long stay at Alex's Home has been so pleasant. The flat has all the conforts you need and is perfect for 4 people as it has 2 rooms and 2 bedrooms. At our arrival Alex has been so nice and kind, he offered us a bottle of wine and fizz. The must is the location: Hoxton and Shoreditch are lovely, interesting and amazing areas with beautiful markets, street art and good restaurants. Then, the tube is at around 40 meters from the flat: perfect after a long touristic day!! Really recommended!!!
Alexander's flat was as pictured. A really comfortable and homey place for our family of four while we visited London. Well stocked with kitchen and laundry items. A plumbling issue arose during stay which was quickly sorted. Alexander was very responsive to our needs (including an early checkin- thanks again!Alexander) . Very centrally located - next to tube station - again suited us but flip side was being on a busy road. Front bedroom can be noisy but back bedroom is fine.
Alexander was there waiting for us upon our arrival making our transition smooth and hassle-free. The flat is large, comfortable and the kitchen well equipped. The bed is comfortable, and although the apartment is on a busy street, the noise did not prevent sleep. The location is superb, steps away from the Underground and in a vibrant neighborhood. The few questions that we had Alexander promptly addressed. We would stay here again.
I went to London with three friends and it was a great stay win Alexander's flat. The Apartment is spacious. Really good to have two bathrooms. The flat is well located in the city and well connected to public transportation - one literally just walks out of Old Street. The side of the flat facing City Road is a bit loud but that it is London. Alexander was a great host and flexible in arranging to hand over the keys, etc, I clearly recommend the place.
Great experience! Its not easy to find apartments for two friends/colleagues who dont share bed and prefer not to sleep in the living room AND would like to have a bathroom each! The rooms are spacious and the beds are comfortable. Alexander waited for us to arrive although our plane was delayed and kindly left a nice bottle of wine for us to enjoy. The location is perfect to enjoy Hoxton, Shoreditch and sorroundings. Plus its 20 steps from subway and several bus lines that take you everywhere.We will definitely stay there next time we are in London.

About the Host, Alexander
I am a fun loving English Chap who loves Music - I DJ throughout London - Clubs like The Ministry of Sound and I have my own Radio Show on Shoreditch Radio & Club Zone FM.
Although this is despite reading Economics at University & working in the City of London for a large proportion of my working life as a Money Broker.
I enjoy to travel and see and experience new things whenever it is possible.
I love good food and drink - food should be enjoyed and not something done in a rush.
Enjoy meeting new people and spending time with Friends & Family
