The bathroom, though small, has a toilet, sink, heated towel bar and a shower. The rear terrace doors of the kitchen also provide access to the rear garden available for your use.
The flat is ideal for a single person, a couple or three people using the hide-away bed. A visiting business person or scholar would find this accommodation an improvement over a standard London hotel room. The flat is non-smoking and we do not take pets.

Though small, the bathroom has a shower, toilet, sink-on-cabinet, mirrored top cabinet and heated towel bar. It is tiled on the floor in grey slate. The walls are tiled in white. There is a shower, but no baththub.
The bedroom terrace doors lead to the garden area. There is raised terrace with the garden shed at the end. A hydrangea bush dominates the right side of the garden. Just outside the terrace doors there is room for a table and chairs, provided with the rental.
This fully-furnished recently renovated studio/one bedroom flat with the essential amenities has good transport for reaching Central London swiftly. Buses from Archway are plentiful. The Northern Line tube is nearby, making access to St. Pancras/Kings Cross and the Eurostar reasonably convenient. Upper Holloway Station on the London Overground network is also convenient.
I was visiting the Holloway area for a week on family business so the flat was very convenient for me.
The flat is comfortable, clean and well equipped. The kitchen is especially nice.
The flat is only about 10 minutes walk from Archway where there is a Northern line tube station and many buses to take you into the centre of London.
This trip taught me that renting a nice place like this one is much better than staying in a hotel and is overall less expensive.
Cordelia is a very nice person to deal with.
The flat has been refurbished and has all needed appliances. It was very clean and Cordelia was a very helpfull and kind host.
Everything was according what's in the web and really do recommend staying there. All my friends have been already notified and next trip I'll be booking there for sure!
