The space

Comfy, warm and bright double bedroom with a view from the 4th floor in a private building with concierge (altough she is only there from 7am till 2 pm)

It has a lift, so no need to worry about stairs.

You can see the gerkin from your window or Canary Warf. It has a double bed, a spacey wardrobe and hangers. The building is well insulated so it is pretty warm in winter. We also provide disposable earplugs in case you find London a bit noisy in the night, specially if you come from the country side or small city.

Also the building just open a communal roof top terrace on the 5th floor (Only open in Summer). So you can see East London from the top.

House Rules

Not safe or suitable for children (0-12 years)
Check in time is 8AM - 11AM

NO SMOKING! (there are some outside areas where you can do this in the building)

No visitors. If you have a friend coming with you, you must tell us in advance, and preferably if we are in the flat. This is our home and brining someone, that we do not know or not part of the airbnb contract, makes us a bit uncomfortable. We had an experience of one the guests brining a random drunk man that just met at the pub.

The key will be delivered before 11am or after 7pm.
Sorry about this, but we both have jobs and our neighbours have the same working schedule as us, and there is not a safe place to leave the keys.

Last option will be that you can come and pick up the keys to Xavier's work which is 15 mins walk to the flat, but it is not recomendable as we need to show you how to use the keys.

Please, pretty please with sugar on top! Let us know if your plane, train, bus, boat is delayed or if there is any changes on your arrival with plenty of time. We plan our day on guests arrival and a small change can make Xavier lose considerable amount of money as he works by appointments and needs to be spot on time. It would be much appreciated if you can msg us and give us a heads up if you are on time or not.

Do not lock the top key!
Listen very carefully to the key and door opening instructions it is not difficult at all! but some peeps ......hmmm.
Just to be warned WE WILL NOT leave work to come and get you out because of your mistake or you will have to pay the locksmith from your own pocket if you lock your self inside or us inside. It only happened twice in 3 years so that tells a lot of those 2 peeps.

Extractor fan must be on when cooking and windows open, and living door closed, sorry I have a very sensitive sense of smell.

No more than 2 people in the bed room.

No sleeping in common parts of flat.

Please replace any beers or booze you take, some guests drank all my beers :.(

We are not allergic to overseas presents.

Staying at Xavier and Ella's place has been a fantastic introduction to airbnb! They are nice, friendly and helpful, and they let you come and go as you please. And don't worry if you forget your keys in the flat, they'll buzz you in when they get home :P I'll definitely stay here next time I go to London :)

I really enjoyed my stay at this flat and would definitely recommend it. Xavier and Ella are wonderful hosts - very friendly, accommodating, and had lots of great suggestions about what to do in the area, transport, restaurants, etc. Check in/out was smooth and they were flexible with the times which was really helpful too. The location is super convenient as it's literally 3 min walk to Bethnal Green Station and there's plenty of little shops and restaurants in the area. Also only around a 20 min walk to Shoreditch. The place itself is great and looks just like the photos. My room and the flat generally were super clean and basic amenities were all provided (even including a couple of USB wall plugs which was a thoughtful touch!). The place gets plenty of light throughout the day too which is nice. I can see why some people may think the outside area is a bit noisy on weekend nights but I didn't have a problem with it at all and there are also earplugs provided. Overall, my stay couldn't have been better and would choose this place again!

The location is fantastic. Just a short walk out the door to the underground so it was extremely easy to get everywhere we wanted to go. There are many shops, restaurants, and bars close by as well. The hosts are very friendly and accommodating. When we come back to London we will book here again!

This is about as good as an AirBnB experience gets: lovely people and great location with a stunning view (check the terrace, seriously!). Ella & Xavier are genuinely warm hosts who know how to make their guests feel at home and are always available for a chit chat and some good advice as to where to get a tasty full English breakfast or a good pint. The description of the flat is 100% accurate, the bed comfy, the neighborhood lively, and public transportation only a few feet away – literally: there is a bus stop smack next door, and Bethnal Green Underground Station is about one minute walking distance (depending on how fast you walk, of course). Highly recommendable!

Xavier and Ella are the perfect hosts. Their flat is amazing - comfortable bed, nice, bright, spacious and great location. They've got a rooftop as well that would be fun for the summer on a sunny day. It feels like home - you can have a laugh, a good conversation and a glass of wine with them but they're fine if you do your own thing too. I wholeheartedly recommend staying with them!

Ella and Xavier were very nice hosts. They immediately made me feel comfortable. Also very practical location, the flat is 1min walk from the central line. I came in London one week to study and this place gave me the peace I needed. I really enjoyed my time there. Thank you both for your kindness, hope to see you soon!

Xavier User ProfileXavier is a superhost.

I'll be more than welcome to give you some non touristy tips about this area.
I've been living in this part of London for about 9 years, so I know quite a few good places to go, specially in East London and Dalston. I am a tattooist and the studio I work is in Shoreditch and sometimes DJ at DRINK SHOP DO in Kings X .
I love tattoos, fixed gear bikes, surfing, skating, sustainable energy stuff, rock climbing, muay thai, Brazilian JIU Jitsu, muscle cars, cooking and all kinds of music except from reggeton.
