Sleeping FAQs

Make the most of everything this exciting city has to offer without compromising on sleep and relaxation. This apartment is located on a substantially quieter block than the rest of this busy area.

A baby crib and high chair can also be offered.

LOCATION AND TRANSPORT

The area

Angel is an eclectic neighbourhood, famous for its nightlife and collection of iconic local pubs, stylish cocktails bars, renowned international restaurants and upmarket, boutique shopping. One of the most in-demand places to live in London, this safe and eco-friendly neighbourhood is also popular with celebrities – Emma Watson, Boris Johnson, James McAvoy, Colin Firth and Lily Allen are all famous faces that have called this vibrant area home in the last few years.

Yet despite it’s amazing reputation and convenient Zone 1 location, the area still has a relaxed, trendy atmosphere. Angel is frequented by local Londoners, with fewer tourists, so you can enjoy an authentic London experience with the luxury of being close to London’s attractions if you wish to explore the city.

The apartment is extremely close to many restaurants, shops, supermarkets and ATMs.

• There are 10 coffee shops within 20 metres

• There is a shopping centre 100 metres away

• There are 3 supermarkets within 50 metres

• There is a 24/7 convenience store just next door

Getting around

The apartment is located on Upper Street, an extremely accessible location for all of Central London, North, South, East or West and with unbeatable transport links.

Angel tube station and Highbury-Islington tube station are both 5 minutes walk away and there is a bus stop right outside the apartment. You can even rent bicycles from automatic stations nearby.

There is public (pay and display) parking for your car, should you chose to drive into London. You can park on the street, or a nearby indoor carpark. However, we recommend public transport instead, as it’s far easier and quicker to explore London in this way.

• Oxford Street (15 minutes)

• Camden Lock Market (20 minutes)

• Regent’s Park (20 minutes)

• British Museum (20 minutes)

• Old Street and Silicone Roundabout (10 minutes)

• St Paul’s Cathedral (20 minutes)

• Shoreditch (15 minutes)

• Westminster (30 minutes)

• West End (30 minutes)

• Southbank (30 minutes)

Getting to the apartment from the airport is easy using public transport (tube, train or bus) but it’s more economical to hire a private taxi if you have a lot of luggage or many guests. I will give you the information to book this.

Our local recommendations

• Walk down to the Turkish restaurant next door for a mix-grill or Turkish breakfast; or even a full English breakfast at the Workers Café with some real London people.

• Have brunch at Ottolenghi, the flagship branch of the world-famous restaurant and patisserie. The cosy venue is minutes from the apartment, where you can enjoy incredible French toast, brownies, smoked salmon breakfasts and colourful salads.

• Enjoy a cocktail and fine dining at Hoxley & Porter, or a traditional pint at the Hope & Anchor pub.

• Buy your groceries from one of the exceptional London supermarkets or organic food stores such as Planet Organic, Waitrose or Marks & Spencer’s.

• The Blow Bar is a must-visit if you’re going somewhere special on your London visit. This boutique hair bar will wash, blow dry and style your hair in just 30 minutes.

• Diverse is a beautiful clothing boutique loved by local fashionistas where you can buy the latest chic pieces from Diane von Furstenberg, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Isabel Marant and See by Chloe.

• See a live gig at Union Chapel, a beautiful Grade II listed church that has been converted into an unbeatable live music venue.

• Family-friendly attractions in the area include the Geffrye Museum and it’s splendid Kid’s Zone, the V&A Museum of Childhood, London Zoo and an abundance of parks and outdoor spaces such as Highbury Fields, Victoria Park, Regent’s Park and London Fields. The cafes in the area also welcome families.

About Paul

Originally from Southern Europe, and now living in London, I strive to make my properties the most accommodating in this city. My team is international and super dedicated and demanding professionals from housekeeping to maintenance and guest managers.

As a seasoned traveler myself, i understand the importance of the comfort of home as well as an adventurous experience in a new city. I combine both of these to ensure a positive, memorable experience for all of my guests.

I enjoy traveling, great food, and vibrant atmospheres and want to share that with others through our property locations. These locations are all minutes away from my friends and my favorite restaurants, bars, and shopping areas. We really love it here and know you will too!

I look forward to welcoming you to my city!

Cheers from London,

Paulo

Comfortable, trendy apartment. Amazing location

  • 5 of 5

I had an amazing stay at Paulo's apartment. I was met on arrival and everything went very smoothly. The apartment is really comfortable, with a brand new kitchen and furniture. The entire place is spotless from top to bottom. Paulo has provided a very detailed instructions manual for anything that I might have needed - Instructions for the appliances, contact information and directions to the nearby attractions. I had some computer work to do and the two wifi connections were very speedy.

The location is amazing - I was one step away from a bunch of great restaurants, shops, cafes and supermarkets.

Highly recommend this apartment to anybody who may be traveling through London and need a great, clean, comfortable apartment in the heart of trendy Islington.

Great Location really convenient

  • 3 of 5

This apartment is in a nice neighbourhood and very convenient to get around. This apartment is suitable for people with a small amount of luggage and capable to climb stairs. You have everything you need at the apartment including a washing machine which works quite well once you know how to use it.

The photos shown here aren't exactly what the room looks like with different pieces of furniture in the apartment. For my standards in Australia this apartment was very small for 3 people with it being more like a converted studio.

When we arrived there was a staff member waiting who was friendly and welcoming.

The only other thing was the processing of our deposit took more than 1 month to be returned and I was told this is due to processing issues. This is rather odd but the owner has since returned those funds. Overall, this stay is simple and cost effective but not suitable for more than 2 people.

Owner's Response: The apartment is presented exactly as in the description and pictures, moreover it comes with a floorplan and surface area detailed for clarity.I appreciate not everyone reads the description in detail, but we only have satisfied guests to date. We do offer bigger 2 bedroom units also to choose from for bigger groups, it's up to the guests desire and budget, and in the same building too. Incidentally on this reservation and review i must clarify: - The security deposit is refunded automatically within a week - that's the new system on Homeaway. Im not aware of this one taking one month, because you only checked out 2 weeks ago from writing this review, so no way you waited 1 month, sorry this is not fair and i don't understand the reason for your frustration but wish you well, but have to clarify for our future guests; - The apartment has stairs and is presented precisely like that, on a second floor, with stairs- i don't understand the surprise with this fact which is presented clearly, as most properties in Central London have stairs; moreover we reminded several times about the stairs before arrival- precisely to avoid anyone with knee injuries overlooking- we remind this several many times; - The guest was even offered an alternative apartment in the same area, bigger and with a massive garden, and offered the chance to go view it and decide to move for a FREE UPGRADE. This effort was not mentioned in the review, but i have to say. I only want happy satisfied guests, and even when i don't have to move to bigger apartment, i offer that possibility, to please and serve; We present the units with utmost precision to avoid these situations, and recommend our guests to read and see the pictures and floorplans to best plan their holidays. I felt a bit of a constant complaining effort from the beginning and did everything i could to please as did my team. I appreciate that moving house or relocating with a lot of luggage is probably not ideal in a junior 1 bedroom apartment for longer stays and will certainly advise future guests to take bigger apartments. We seek to improve our information and service with every feedback. I wish you had accepted my offer to move for FREE to a bigger apartment, when i came forward, there was no need for this. The location here is indeed excelent as the apartment is perfectly and carefully decorated. I'm sorry its' much smaller than what big family home you might have back home but it's a fine unit.

Angel and Highbury and Islington underground stations are on the same street as the apartment. St.Pancras station and its Eurostar terminal to Paris and Brussels is less than a 20-minute walk away. Many buses into the centre and other parts of London can be found literally on your doorstep, and the West End can be reached in 15 minutes.

Famous for its nightlife, buzzing Angel offers an impressive choice of entertainment, from bars and restaurants, to renowned theatres such as the Almeida and Sadler’s Well Dance Theatre. Several live music venues are also close by, the Union Chapel, O2 Academy Islington and The Garage to mention some. 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.
