We now have two rooms available to rent on airbnb. This is The Can, a small compact en-suite private space has been newly converted from a bathroom to a beautiful 'Pod Style' bunk room designed with airbnb guests in mind and adventurous travellers. Situated in a late Victorian listed brick water tower high above the vibrant and cosmopolitan West End. Parking space available. Simple breakfast available in your room. 5 mins walk to DMU.

The space

This is a newly converted unique space designed for airbnb guests after a successful two years of hosting our Victorian Water Tower Loft upstairs from this room. Separate to our main living areas, our newly converted late Victorian en suite water tower pod style room is incredibly comfortable, stylish and private.

Guest access

Guest access is your own unique en-suite POD style room.

Interaction with guests

It really is up to you how much you interact, whatever you are comfortable with.

Other things to note

This is a small space, rather like a high end railway sleeper carriage. Everything has been designed with the space in mind, the room has an en-suite bathroom - there is a sliding privacy door.

The top bunk folds down, when you arrive the bed will be in the locked away position.

Bedding is stored under the sofa.

Nice neighbourhood close to De Montfort University, beautiful old converted building - room or rather self-contained studio tiny but really clever in terms of interior design - it was perfect for an overnight stay, and would definitely book again.

Cosy, modern, stylish and spotless: just some of the words that sum up my experience of 'The Can'. The hosts, David and Fred were very accommodating. I had a great two nights and would love to stay again if I'm in the area!
