This small but cosy studio is ideal for one person or a couple. There is a shower, a toilet and a kitchen area. The room is only 10 minute walk away from the famous Canterbury Cathedral. Next to the East Train Station and near the west train station.

The space

This self contained studio-room is ideal for one person or a couple. The room is ensuite ( there is a shower and a toilet inside) so you can enjoy complete privacy. And there is also a small kitchen area composed of a compact mini-kitchen with Sink, Mini Fridge/Freezer, storage Unit and Electric Ceramic Hob.
Well, it is not the Hilton :) but if you want somewhere to stay in absolute privacy without having to share a flat with someone else, and close to wonderful Canterbury Cathedral, this will do just great! The studio-room is comfortable, has everything you need, including wireless Internet, small fridge and private car parking. In order to avoid false expectations, I would like to invite you to look carefully at the pictures and make sure that you are happy with the size of the studio-room. To conclude here are some of the words of previous guests who in my view describe well this listing: ' Very nice little studio with basic cooking facilities and private bathroom. Great for a short stay'. 'Good place but be aware that this is more of a traveller's rest than a romantic retreat'.

Guest access

There is a communal door that when opened leads to a communal hall where there are two doors the one to the left is the entrance to the independent room-studio and on the right there is a door that leads to the flat where landlord (Sakis) lives with his (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN). The studio-room and the neighbouring flat are completely independent and have their own locks on the respective doors.

Interaction with guests

Depending on the day and your arrival time, me or my flatmate will meet you and give you the keys to your self contained studio-room. There is also the option to leave they keys on a lockbox for you to collect if you arrive late or if your arrival time is inconvenient for me to be there because of work. Your studio-room as it is depicted in the pictures, is independent with a different entrance and a lock in the door and the interaction with the host is minimum, meaning that you will probably only will meet with myself or my (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) when we give you the keys.

More than perfect accomodation to enjoy your stay in Canterbury. Aldi next door is pretty convenient, same for the location very near to the centre and the bus station! Communication with the host was also very good and he's always been very helpful! I would definitely come back

A perfect bolt-hole for a busy weekend in the City. Comfy bed, clean and tidy! So much more homely than the comparatively priced hostels in town!

The studio flat is ideal if you want to use it as a base to explore the city from or venture further on the bus. It is compact but you've everything you'd need for a short stay. The bed, although large, was too hard for our tastes. The flat is right opposite the Aldi supermarket which is very handy.
