Also Shoreditch and Brick lane are 8 min walks, and you can get to the centre of London in 9 mins. Standsted airport bus stop just outside. 24 hour grocery and booze store just at the entrance of the building!
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.

Minimum stay: 2 nights, Maximum stay: 2 weeks
No more than 2 people in the bedroom, Sorry.
Check in is preferable before 10:30 am or after 7:00pm on weekdays. Weekends will be no problem but we need to set a time as we make plans and we make them according to guest arrival. Check out is all good as long as we do not have anyone coming on the same day.
Feel free to come and hang out in the living room. You can also use the kitchen , and the roof terrace(summer time).
Interaction with guests
We are willing to recommend places to get something to eat or to have the best coffee in London.
Other things to note
Try to be considerate after 11pm, as we need to wake up early. I.e.: Late night showers, late cooking or loud video calls.
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.
Cancel up to 7 days before your trip and get a 50% refund. Cancel within 7 days of your trip and the reservation is non-refundable.
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.
