Good sized double bedroom with french windows onto juliette balcony in contemporary 1000ft² penthouse apartment. Lots of space and light. Impressive open-plan mezzanine kitchen/dining space with views over the City (you can see the Gherkin!)
Brand new bathroom installed in June 2012 with deep-fill bath tub and power shower. Free secure car-parking. Gymnasium on site. High-speed broadband access. Washing machine and dishwasher.
2 bedrooms, so only sharing with 1 other resident (female creative professional in her early 30s).
Located in vibrant and trendy Dalston, with all its buzzing bars and restaurants. Easily accessible to Hackney, Shoreditch, Stoke Newington and Islington. Several parks in short walking distance.
5 minute walk from Dalston Kingsland and Dalston Junction stations (allowing 20 minute commute into central London via Highbury & Islington Station). 5 minute walk from Hackney Downs station (8 minute train journey to Liverpool Street station and the City).
No smoking. No pets.
Emma is nice and her dog Dizzy is so funny. We really have a good time. She gives us many suggestions and directions. The apt is clean and cozy and we have access to everything we need.
Emma is really nice, she provided me all I needed and she helped me also when she was far away from home.
The flat is very bright and spacious and it is closed to any amenities in Dalston area.
Really closed to many bus stops that allow you to get easily to the centre. Alternately you can use the overground (the line runs next to the house so it could be a little bit annoying to those who are not used to that noise).
I stayed at Emma's for a month while waiting for my flat to become available and she was a fantastic host. She met me exactly as planned, made me feel immediately at home, and offered suggestions for local restaurants and services. Despite being away for the majority of my stay, Emma checked in regularly and made sure everything was going well and her roommate Anya was really welcoming and helpful as well. The room was a good size with plenty of storage space. The flat is really lovely, airy, tons of light and very close by to several bus routes. I would absolutely stay at Emma's again or recommend it to visiting friends!
Emma was an excellent hostess. Communication was always easy with her and she quickly responded to any questions. The check-in process was smooth, which is always a bonus after a long flight. Her flatmate was very warm and friendly and kindly showed me how to use everything in the flat. The location is perfect for those who would like to explore east London and it is also well connected to central London if you would like to see the more touristy things. The flat itself is in pristine condition and is very comfortable. I would highly recommend Emma's flat to anybody coming to London.
Creative, non-smoking female. Work freelance in the arts. I work very hard but play pretty hard too :) Spent 2 months in New York this summer and would love to spend some more time there.. so who knows may be I'll be subletting the whole apartment soon! I love yoga, I read a lot, I go to the theatre every week, and I love my food - this area of London is a good place to be for foodies! Happy to leave guests to do their own thing but also very happy to show you the city if you'd prefer.
