Very cool, eclectic and personal, lateral loft space taking up the first floor of an industrial turn of the 20th century workshop in Shoreditch / Hoxton, three minutes walk to Hoxton Square, five minutes walk to Old Street underground station (Northern Line) and twelve minutes to Liverpool Street main line and underground. There is a Barclays bike stand 50m from the building. Within three minutes walk are fantastic bars and restaurants.

The markets, bar and restaurants at Columbia Road, Brick Lane, Spitalfields and Broadway Market are all a short distance away. All of the Olympic sites and the West End / Oxford Street are accessible from the excellent local connections (20 minute bus journey / 15 in a cab to Oxford Street).

The flat is essentially one large room, with a three quarter height kitchen divider separating the living space from the bedroom, and from the bedroom, a door leading to a separate bathroom with bath and shower. The space has enormous windows on three sides – fitted with blackout roller blinds for when needed.

It is fully furnished with design originals including a super comfy sofa and a dining table that seats eight easily. The main space has freeview / DVD / blu-ray / full hifi and an HD projector which accepts inputs from most laptops and very fast wifi (50-70meg). The large loading doors at the end of the space can be opened to let the outside in. There is also an informal space on the New York style fire escape leading up to the entrance where one can take the sun and have a coffee on a nice day. Great mood lighting.

Kitchen equipped with a gas hob, an electric oven, a dishwasher and fully stocked with cooking utensils and crockery. Central heating keeps the space toasty in winter despite the large crittal windows.

There is a laundry area with a washer / dryer and an old fashioned clothes airer over the bath. The bathroom is functional and spotlessly clean.

Towels and bed linen all white and of the best quality (400 thread frette sheets) and the bed has a king size (150cm) tempur mattress.

At additional cost, I can arrange for a futon mattress so the space can accommodate 3 people in total (the sofa is also very comfortable to sleep on). No smoking in the flat I'm afraid.

There is a fantastic coffee shop 15 metres away, perfect for breakfast and a late opening dry cleaners two shops down from that. The nearest pub is just at the back of the building (but we don’t hear the noise) and they serve excellent pizza until late. There is also a late opening Tesco mini supermarket at the other end of the road and an organic grocery four minutes walk in the other direction. I’ve lived in the area for fifteen years and happy to suggest bars, restaurants, art events, parties etc. depending on what you are looking for.

The space has neighbours above and below so loud music after 11pm and parties are not welcome please and would definitely need to be discussed before booking.

Interaction with guests

I usually check in every guest myself and usually live in the block when I am in London

For me, location was the best part of this place. It is within proximity to the Tube and it has tons of local restaurants, coffee shops, and bars within walking distance. I enjoyed the coziness and decor of the apt. You get an awesome feel for the neighborhood.

This studio flat is fantastic. Full of wonderfully interesting bits and pieces. Great facilities and in a very relaxed area, with everything you could need. 10 minute walk to the tube, and in a really good part of London.

This is a very fun/funky loft in a great location close to hip & happening Shoreditch. Lots of space & light and delightful visual surprises. Rafa was easily accessible and great with detailed communication. Key retrieval was easy with a lockbox. The neighborhood felt safe and there were all kinds of great restaurants and shops in close proximity. All in all a very unique and creatively stimulating spot in one of London's liveliest neighborhoods.

Fantastic place to stay. Cool neighbourhood, lots of places to eat, drink and take breakfast locally: Rafa's recommendations were brilliant. The apartment is great, stylish decor and very comfortable. Really accessible too. Highly recommend.

This apartment was key in making my London vacation special - the location is perfect : stone's throw away from trendy Brick Lane and Hoxton, tucked away peacefully from the hustle and bustle. We fell in love with the quirky but tasteful decor, and made ourselves at home with its useful amenities. However, our dream London vacation would not have went smoothly without the hospitality of the host, who guided and aided us each step of the way with his attention to detail and genorousity. Simply a great stay which I would always remember.
