Between London's financial and arts and media centre, is one of London's most interesting neighborhoods. You get a sense of being in the capital city when you stand on either of the two balconies and look up at the sky scrapers that surround you. When you walk out of the front door to the street you are immediately surrounded by buildings of british Victorian architecture. This contrasting mix is a consistent theme in London through it's music, arts, language, food, architecture and people.
Walk to many of London’s key attractions. Hoxton, Brick Lane, and Shoreditch are literally on the door-step, where you’ll find art galleries, museums, boutique shops, bars, restaurants, cafes and markets. The Tate Modern, London Dungeon, The Museum of London and the Design museum are within walking distance. Both the heart of London’s financial district and the art and media centers are within minutes of the apartment.
The lift brings you to the top floor of a contemporary building, where the 60m2 suite sits with its two balconies, running the entire length of the apartment. One faces north with breathtaking views of the city the other faces south towards Aldgate and the River Thames. Frying Pan Alley is a walkway, which means the apartment although being positioned in the heart of bustling London, enjoys almost complete silence guaranteeing the perfect nights sleep.
The apartment is designed to modern standards with a fully equipped kitchen and bathroom, 32-inch LCD TV, DVD player, High speed WIFI internet connection and freeview Cable television. There is also an ipod/iphone/MP3 docking station so that you can enjoy your music. A collection of books and DVD's for both children and adults is also in the apartment for you to use whilst your here.
It takes 17 minutes via Liverpool Street’s Central line to get to Oxford Circus and the many theatres of London’s West End. The Central Line runs through the heart of London and stops five minutes walk from the apartment. Spitalfields market which is open everyday is also within 200 metres of the apartment.
There’s a luxury king size double bed in the bedroom and an extremely comfortable (and easy to use) king size folding sofa bed in the living room. Both beds are fitted with 4 luxury pillows of different sizes and softness as well as luxury bedclothes to ensure that no matter what you prefer your bed to be like, you’ll enjoy a good comfortable nights sleep here!
Rubbish should be taken to the communal bins at the front of the building, smoking and pets are not permitted.
There is a security deposit of £150 which is paid on arrival and returned (subject to the house rules being maintained) within 48hrs of your departure if not immediately on departure.
A welcome pack will be sent to you once you make a reservation. In this you will find all information on the check-in procedure, information and maps on how to arrive, a short term letting agreement which you must sign and return before arrival and plenty of recommendations on what to do in London while you are here.

This apartment is a very nice apartment. It is clean, modern, it has al necessary equipment for a short and long stay, including dish washer and washing machine. There is plenty of room for 4 adults. The sofa bed is not as good as the king size bed in the bedroom, but for a few nights it is okay.
We were welcomed by someone from the checkin-team. She gave us a tour, explained some of the equipment and gave some directions where to find extra's. They even provided clean and neat towels!
The neighbourhood is nice, a lot of restaurants to choose from, some pubs and Liverpool station is just a 4 minute walk. From there you can go to Central London in about 15 minutes by underground.
We have had a very pleasant stay and we will book this apartment the next time we visit London.
This apartment was in a great place. It is close to a major rail station and near markets and a supermarket.
The apartment is nice and clean. The furniture was new and tastefully chosen'. The only problem was the bed. It is too big for the bedroom and one of us had to climb over the other. This could be a problem for older or disabled people. Other wise fabulous and am happy to recommend to friends
We were very happy with the location and the apartment was light and bright, spacious and comfortable. We were initially a little disappointed with some of the amenitities but Clive was quick to respond to our feedback and made good what we felt was lacking. We highly recommend both Clive and the apartment in Spitalsfield.
The apartment is very nice, functional, quiet, spacious, clean, bright, well furnished and well equipped. Located less than 5 minutes walk from Liverpool Street tube station allows fast navigation throughout the city. Surely the next time I'm in London on lease out
L'appartamento è molto bello, funzionale, silenzioso, ampio, pulito, luminoso, ben arredato e ben attrezzato. Localizzato a meno di 5 minuti a piedi dalla stazione metropolitana di Liverpool street consente spostamenti veloci con tutta la città. Sicuramente la prossima volta che andrò a Londra lo affitterò
We were happy guests Clive. Communication excellent apartment, very nice and convenient accommodation for visiting London. Raccomandatissimo! Thanks Clive, to the next.

Very nice flat, very clean and complete, very well placed !

And we'll come back !
Very nice apartment! It's quiet but you ca reach Kings Cross within minutes by bus! Everything works in the apartment and it does look like on the photos.
My family( six of us) had a lovely time in this apartment. It is indeed very stylish and comfortable.
Beds and linen particularly nice.
Great quiet location and only a brisk 15 min walk to Camden Tube station.
Camden is such a great base to explore central London.
Lovely small conveneince store over the road and a huge supermarket 5 to 8 mins away.
Would recommend if you are looking for an authentic London accomm experience.

Cleaves not seen live but excellent reactivity when we had pbs. Apartment complies with photos, well renovated (superb bathrooms!). We had a good time.
A bit far from tourist but quiet corners .. except the entrance of the building slammed every morning at 5am door!
Some areas for improvement to make it parrrfait:
- If you want a minimum of food, lack of food that ;-)
- We would like to have the price of blinds in working order. no possibility to make the black in the living room and open and ventilate the rooms in ;-( But I hope that since it was repaired! sure you FROM Clive before renting if you need to sleep someone in the living room.
- And I agree with other comments on the quality of the bedding is more than average. But for a few days we did not disturbed.
Pas vu clive en direct mais excellente reactivité quand nous avons eu des pbs. Appartement conforme aux photos, bien renové (superbes salles de bain !). On a passé un bon moment.
Un peu loin des coins touristiques mais calme.. sauf porte d'entree de l'immeuble claquée tous les matins à 5h!
Quelques points d’amélioration pour que cela soit parrrfait:
- Si vous voulez faire un minimum de cuisine, cela manque de plat ;-)
- On aurait aime pour le prix avoir des stores en etat de marche. pas possiblite de faire le noir dans le sejour et d'ouvrir et d'aerer dans les chambres ;-( Mais j'espere que depuis cela a ete réparé! Assurez vous en aupres de Clive avant de louer si vous avez besoin de faire dormir quelqu'un dans le sejour.
- Enfin je rejoins les autres commentaires sur la qualité de la literie qui est plus que moyenne. Mais pour quelques jours cela ne nous a pas perturbé.
