About This Listing
Super birght and spacious room in central London. The room has a massive window with amazing views of London. Also wardrobe, desk and very comfy double bed.
I am renting a double room in Central London, Old street area.
The property is a very warm and comfortable 2 bedroom maisonette on the 17th floor. Quiet and cosy.
My house is a classic maisionett layout and it is split in two levels, so the bedrooms and living room are not in the same level what makes is much more comfortable and private and keeps the bedrooms very quiet even during day time.
It is a 1960' building and you will appreciate that in its architecture!
You will have full access to the kitchen and all its appliances (cooker, washing machine*, microwave, fridge and freezer, etc) and a sweet bathroom and toilet.
Since I am on the 17th floor the view it is just amazing! But don't worry, they are two elevators and they work very well.
You can have breakfast and sightsee the Big Ben, St Paul's Cathedral, the London Eye, BT Tower, Gherkin Building , Heron Tower and the whole City of London.
From the bedroom you can also see the east and the Olympic Villa in the horizon.
There is a food market down the road and you are a walking distance from the City of London, Shoredicth, Brick Lane, Liverpool Street Station, Barbican Centre, Museum Of London and many other attractions.
Brick Lane Market, Spitefileds Market and Angel Market and Columbia Road Flower Market are very close, and a bit further you can walk along the canal up to the cute Broadway Market on Saturdays and enjoy Victoria Park.
The flat is very well comunicated and of easy access, 5 minutes walk from Old Street station where you can take the Northern Line and be in 10 minutes in King's cross and St Pancras, London Bridge Station, Liverpool Street Station, etc.
The Neighbourhood is very trendy and Londoners chose Old Street area for the night life as an option of the West End and Soho.
It is plenty of bars and restaurants and if you prefer to cook at home there are 2 super markets round the corner.

There is a concierge service in my building, however, he is not there to deal with Airbnb guests, unfortunately! So, unless agreed with me, he can't get or hand over keys, nor look at your luggage until you come back, etc.
My house is smoke free and I would like you to respect that.
There is no breakfast included but you are welcome to use the kitchen to prepare your own breakfast or light meals. I will expect you to wash what you have used afterwards.
There is access to the internet via wireless but you need to bring your own device to get online. Unfortunately I can't share my personal computer, no exceptions.
The washing machine is available at £1 for wash and it has to be operated by me.

We had a very nice stay on Alejandro's apartment. Everything was prepared and clean when we got there. He was kind enough to wait for us for more than one hour after the scheduled time (we got lost) and sent us the correct directions via WhatsApp. The room was nice and comfortable. The apartment is quiet, has a great view and it is very close to a metro station, a small supermarket and several bars/restaurants. Alejandro is very polite and tried to make us feel as comfortable as possible.
Fine location in the trendy shoreditch district. Alejandro's flat is a penthouse in a tower block - must have been one of the first in Europe. The view to all city directions is amazing. For London, it's very central. In the neighborhood are many nice but affordable restaurants, bars, and coffee-houses. I experienced Alejandro as an extremely kind person. Next time I am in London I know where to go.
Alejandro was a very nice host; attentive and helpful at all times. The apartment is big and has a besutiful view; is close to different underground and bus stations, supermarket and restaurants. The room is very cozy, clean and has a very comfortable bedroom. Thanks for everything, Alejandro
Great flat, great host and great location. Alejandro was welcoming and made we feel at home as soon as I arrived. The room was clean and comfortable and I would stay again.
The apartment is very well located, and the room was comfortable.
Alejandro was helpful and arranging. I can only recommend.
