Best decision! Highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed in this flat for two weeks this July, with my husband and my kids of 5 and 8.

We were looking for a comfortable, spacious, safe and clean place for a reasonable price where we could feel at home during our vacances in London. Well located but far enough from busiest London streets (only three tube stations from Oxford Circus).

We found all that mentioned at this flat in Islington. A lively neighborhood even at night (at least in summer days...) full of restaurants, cafés, bars...(we only sorry not to have had a baby sitter!) as well as shops and supermarkets. Buses almost at the door and a short walking distance from two tube stations.

The apartment is exactly as in the pictures and video shown here. When we arrived felt as if we would already have stayed there before!

Everything we used worked well, we found all supplies we needed, especially a fully equiped kitchen. Both Bed and sofá were very confortable.

Watching a starry sky since terrace at nights was really an unespected plus......fifteen fully sunny days in London !!! ( ....was Paulo's team who managed this too?!)

We'll be back for sure.

Everything you need

  • 5 of 5

This flat could not have been better. I was travelling solo for a few days in London, and I was looking for a place in a good location, close to London sights, with a nice amount of space to relax and feel at home. I got to pretend I lived in London for a few days, and I am sold!

The location on Upper Street in Angel is fabulous. You're so close to tons of restaurants, pubs, and shops, not to mention the Tube. I was able to walk to a number of the downtown sights and it was really nice to come home to a full kitchen, fix yourself a nice snack with some wine and relax on the terrace. The kitchen had everything I needed to even cook myself a proper dinner one night, which really helps to save some money while on holiday. Plenty of supermarkets in the area, plus the Chapel Street market for fresh local produce and meats.

I enjoyed lots of the local restaurants, and can especially recommend: Hoxley & Porter for great food and cocktails, Vintage Salt for excellent fish and chips, and Ottolenghi for the best vegetables you'll ever eat.

Property management was great, the apartment was clean and the booklet had all the info you need. I will definitely look to stay here again and I've recommended it to friends.

Excellent location , charming well equipt flat , well designed

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed staying in this wonderful flat . Very clear communication from owner and team , easy contact on arrival . The flat is very charming , we particularly liked the outdoor area , the livingroom is comfortable , bright lots of DVDs , books and even PSP ! Internet connection was good , kitchen is well equipt . It was so lovely to come back to this flat after a busy day - very relaxing and bright !

The area itself is fantastic with lots of lovely restaurants yet there is a real neighbourhood feel , excellent tube and bus connection. The only reason I gave it 4 stars rather than 5 is that as the flat is not double glazed , you can hear everything from the outside . Although the area is generally quiet , I think if you are sensitive to noise like I am , it might be a issue . Also the shower needs fixing - you can't put the shower head up or down so it's basically dribbles on the wall rather then your body . If you use it as hand shower it's fine though .. I think all in all I will not hesitate to stay again .

Paul cancelled shortly before our trip

  • 1 of 5

Paul claimed a water heater issue and that he tried to find an alternative apartment but could not. Although last minute we did find an alternative on HomeAway. Why couldn't Paul? We were lucky that our visit to London was off season. I suspect that if it were Summer we may not have been able to find an apartment. Earlier reviews show that Paul has done this before.

Owner's Response: The only occasion a reservation might be canceled is when payment is not made timely after several reminders, suspicion of payment fraud, guest planning activities that are not permitted in the property or in case of emergency repairs (such as heating or hot water systems or gas). On occasions guests may also cancel their trip. Over more than 10 years we experienced rare instances of severe maintenance where we'd have to relocate or cancel a reservation.

And right on Upper Street: “Union Chapel is one of the most beautiful settings to enjoy live music in London and has a totally unique atmosphere” said Tim Arthur, editor-in-chief of Time Out London. The Grade-II listed church in Compton Street, Islington, beat competition from Brixton Academy and the Royal Albert Hall to take the top spot in Time Out magazine’s poll.

Other well-known attractions in the area include the Dickens Museum, the London Canal Museum, Camden Passage Antiques Market, Chapel Market, Columbia Road Flower Market, Brick Lane, Broadway Market, Spitalfields and Petticoat Lane. The Emirates football stadium is within walking distance, or a quick bus ride away.

The area is family friendly with attractions like the Geffrye Museum and its splendid Kids’ Zone and the V&A Museum of Childhood. There is an abundance of parks and outdoor spaces such as Highbury Fields, London Fields, Clissold Park and De Beauvoir Square. There is a wide array of child friendly cafes both on Upper Street and in surrounding areas.
