I work as an art director in a studio close to my apartment.
My place is a self contained one bedroom apartment. The front room looks onto the main Kingsland High Street and the bedroom is at the back of the property looking onto Gillet Square.
The apartment can sleep 4 people - the front room has a sofa which turns into a double bed.
The area is popular with artists and creatives many local amenities such as Dalston Kingsland station a block away and Dalston Junction a few blocks away.
My favourite bars are right on my doorstep. Dalston Superstore and Ivys Mess Hall both 30 seconds walk. A shopping mall with a large supermarket Sainsburys is a few minutes walk and there is Ridley Road Market across the street.
Shoreditch is a close bus ride away and there are 24 hour buses to Shoreditch and Central London just outside.
I have lived in the area for 15 years and happy to leave you with suggestions of what is on in town to visit the time of your stay.
