Private double room in friendly flat.

Zone 1 with excellent transport links and bike rental station right outside!

The flat is newly renovated, and on the doorstep of Shoreditch, Angel, Hoxton and Brick Lane.

The flat is shared with my wife and I who are often about as we work from home.

please note: All previous reviews are for the whole property as we have just amended the listing after time abroad (in case they don't make sense).

The space

From our 860sq. ft. split level apartment we rent our spare room.

There is an upstairs bathroom, downstairs w/c, a kitchen and bright reception room leading to a south facing private garden. A floor plan is included in photos. The room for rent is 3.7m x 2.8m with a 5' double bed.

The entire apartment has been recently renovated to a high standard, with new kitchen fittings and bathroom suite. It's all fully furnished, so you don't need to bring your own sofa.

Small private garden at back of flat for relaxing in the sunshine.

We provide high-speed wifi, towels, bedding, hair-dryer, iron, etc. You're welcome to help yourself to tea & coffee but we don't provide breakfast.

Guest access

The bedroom, a shared bathroom with bath/shower, a downstairs w/c, the living room, garden and the kitchen with all the equipment in it. We often work from home (in the study), so prefer guests that will be out and about exploring the sights of London, for which we will give you lots of tips!

When you are in though, we have a bath, Netflix, DVD player, board games and a fully equipped kitchen. Use anything you need!

Interaction with guests

We will be around most of the time and will happily suggest places around London for you to visit and places in the local area to eat/drink. (check out our map and recommendations listed on airbnb).

Other things to note

All we ask is that you treat our home (and our elderly neighbours) with respect and keep noise to a minimum after.

I've stayed in Louis's place for two nights. I've stayed a few B&Bs in London before, Louis' place is the best one among them. It exceeds my expectation much more. The location is very good -- a short walking distance to the tube station The Old Street station and to the nearby restaurants and shops. The flat is decorated quite modern, is spacious and very clean. It does not directly face the main road so it is quiet in the flat. And Louis and Ellie are very nice, helpful people. Comparing the similar conditions the price is reasonable. I was very happy to have stayed in their place. Hope I will stay there again later on. It is highly recommended place to stay when visiting London either for short or long stay, either for touring or working!

I used Louis' place to accommodate work colleagues whilst they had a week of workshops in London. The guests were delighted with their accommodation and proved a real haven after busy days at work.

Our group had a fantastic stay with Louis who was an amazing host. From the start the communication was really quick and he was very helpful and accommodating. The check-in was easy and the house was spotless clean. The home itself is a really good size and has been recently refurbished so it felt like brand new. Everything was presented perfectly and the beds were really comfy with lovely soft bed linen. It has great transport links being in zone 1 and the area is super cool and fun, we loved exploring around. All in all we couldn't recommend this high enough. Thanks so much Louis, see you next time!

Louis's place was fab again. I came back for a second stay they were both so lovely. I'd encourage anyone to consider staying there. Nice home with everything you need, and very friendly hosts. Louis even cooked me breakfast!

A five star stay at Louis place. They were both super lovely. Kind, generous, easy going. Happy to share the milk and left little notes for me like 'here's the coffee', or offered to make me on. Little shampoo bottles lovingly bought from an expensive London store (or perhaps kept from a recent hotel stay ;-) made for special touches in my room. I didn't want to use them as it reminded me of Ellie's warm hospitality, (and besides, I don't know how often they stay in hotels)... but the gesture shows the calibre of their attention to detail in making you feel welcome. It was great, and I've already booked to come back and stay with them again for a bit. The room was great overall. A street light outside was a little bright and blinds not quite enough to block out fully dark, but it wasn't that bad. Besides, expensive sleeping eye masks sourced from the finest London establishments were also provided just in case (or maybe British Airways perhaps?!). I like little touches like this. Shows thought. Recommended to others for sure, and I'll be back.
