Don’t you just hate feeling like a tourist? A stay in a Habitat-furnished, beautifully designed Cuckooz apartment in the heart of east London is going to put paid to that.

London For The Taking

Imagine arriving in a city and immediately living like a local. That’s exactly what a few nights in a Cuckooz apartment can give you. Located in the ‘Eastern Gateway to the City of London’ (or hipster east London to you and me), you are encouraged to hit the ground running: delve into the city, hang out with friends and family, explore carefully researched local haunts and, most importantly, enjoy London from the get-go without ever feeling like a tourist.

Home Away From Home

The brainchild of Charlie and Fabienne, Cuckooz promises a more authentic and inspirational experience to your travels. Where you rest your head is more than ‘a base’, it’s a place to kick back and relax, knowing that central London is right on your doorstep. Working in collaboration with interior designers 2LG Studio and Habitat, a Cuckooz apartment is beautifully designed with handpicked fabrics, bespoke details and furnishings from local designers. Basics come as standard: Egyptian cotton bedlinen, fluffy towels and toiletries. Little things that make a difference.

The Road Less Travelled

Aldgate has undergone multi-million pound regeneration and investment in recent years to create a hub of creativity and entrepreneurialism. A concierge service provides insider knowledge so you can seek out the road less travelled - from where to find the best oyster bar to independent coffee shops, restaurants and music venues, as well as street markets and the kind of clothing emporiums that furnish you with effortless, just-thrown-on, style. All this before you retreat to the comforts of home: your Cuckooz home.
