Lovely bright room with one double bed in fashionable Hackney, 4 min from the train station. Great for travellers interested to discover East London’s emerging culture: alternative markets, music scene, shopping opportunities, amazing parks.
Lovely double room in a bright flat. It features great unobstructed views from all rooms, reaching as far as the skyscrapers of the City on the west. You can enjoy amazing skies, the sunset from the living room and directly from your bed. The bedroom is equipped with a new double bed and mattress, a wardrobe, a chest of drawers and a desk.
There is a comfortable living room with a library and a balcony facing west, great for enjoying a coffee-drink when the weather is sunny. There is a small bathroom and separate toilet room. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you might need during your stay (cutlery, cooking utensils, dishwasher, microwave, washing machine, etc).
The flat is a maisonette on the last two floors of a late modernist 1980's apartment block. Please note that this building is not a gated community of any sort! Its residents are not all young and trendy, but it is a true section through the East London community. Despite the rough appearance of the shared areas of the building (such as the entrance and the elevator lobby) the house is safe and the neighbours are friendly.
There are currently scaffolds placed around the building for repairs, but that does not obstruct the view from the room, but it does give it more of an "industrial" feel.
You are obviously welcome to use the living room and the kitchen
Interaction with guests
We enjoy our area and receiving guests!We are happy to offer you recommendations and tips to make your own individual visit to London a great experience.
Both of us have a diverse and busy schedule, some days we waking up early (visiting construction sites, teaching at universities) and some others working up late (doing art, design competitions, etc). We enjoy sharing meals and having friends around but also respect other peoples need for privacy, personal quiet time and sleeping schedule. The room would be ideally for people who enjoys a relaxed sociable environment. You cannot smoke inside the house but you can do so on the balcony.
We are a couple of architects and artists. We have our own design practice, do art and teach in university. We are easygoing, social, respectful,humorous and friendly. We love traveling and we enjoy meeting different people, nationalities and cultures. Sharing our house is a great opportunity to meet people and learn about the world. We are interested in art, architecture, design, cinema (especially sci-fi) , bikes, climbing, sports and reading.
