"The convenience of inner city living without the hassle of living in the city."

The location of the apartment is perfect for exploring London. 5 minutes walk to the tube station. 15 minutes to Central London by tube. For a more leisurely journey, take any one of the many buses that also go into London from the end of the street. There is a mini cab office at the end of the street and black taxis cruise Holloway Rd. Hampstead and Highgate are also very close by bus and well worth a visit. The apartment location is very handy for St Pancras and Eurostar trains and is also relatively easy to get too (50 minutes, change trains just once) by tube from Heathrow. The apartment is in a very quiet and safe street within walking distance of a vast selection of pubs, restaurants, take aways, supermarkets etc. The apartment is the basement apartment in an typical older London terraced house and despite the unusually wet weather in London in January, was warm, dry and cosy. The apartment is compact, but has adequate space for 4 people. The outside courtyard provides additional space to sit and relax (if it is not raining) and would be perfect during the warmer months. Carolyn was very understanding when our travel plans were disrupted resulting in us overstaying by half a day and was very easily contactable during our stay. I would recommend the apartment as an ideal base to explore Central London and the historic inner northern suburbs.

"Very Comfortable, Cosy and Conveniently Located - We Will Stay Again!"

This was 1 of 4 apartments we stayed on our trip to Europe, so we had quite a bit to compare to. We checked in, after dark, to a warm, brightly lit, freshly cleaned and very welcoming apartment. We had a family of 5. Sleeping very comfortable with the sofa bed in the living room. The single beds in the 2nd room were narrower than what we are used to but we adjusted. Heating was perfectly set - no complaints from our demanding kids! Bathroom was modern, very well maintained. The heating rack was great. We came from an apartment in Edinburgh where these basics were not in place, so we did not take this for granted. Kitchen was well equipped. We had everything we needed for simple meals. The pantry had a selection of spices, tea, coffee etc - this was very helpful. We appreciated the welcome basket of eggs, milk, fruit and bread. Would have been good to have a waste bin though - we made do with plastic bags. There was a good selection of DVD's (we had Despicable Me running all week!), games, books and London travel information - this was appreciated when we got home in the evenings. WiFi was very reliable and unlimited - a must-have for travelling! Instructions were detailed and clear. Location was great. We were 5 mins walk from Archway Tube station and buses. Groceries were easy - 2 mins up the street. We enjoyed the different available food options. This was really a first class experience. Carolyn always responded quickly to all our queries leading up to the stay. We would stay here again if visiting London and thoroughly recommend this.

"comfortable, well appointed, close to station"

We were welcomed with a basket of goodies in a unit that was clean, well appointed and warm. There was also good natural light, comfortable beds and good linen. Beyond the control of the owner was the unit above - the laundry was directly above the main bedroom with a washing machine that sounded like a team of horses. But it didn't last too long. All in all, the unit was a nice little haven to return to at the end of each day.

Thank you for your kind and very useful feedback. We can install sound insulation under the washing machine upstairs to ensure guests are not disturbed in future. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay and do hope you will come again.

"Good location for a family exploring London"

Cosy apartment, very well equipped, close to tube. All in all it was perfect for a family exploring London. Be aware of parking fee - you need to pay, but it can be done online via Islington's municipality.

"Bright and comfortable, close to good Tube and bus stop"

Easy to get around different parts of London, with Archway tube only a short walk. Grocery store very close buy, great coffee and baklava at the little Turkish cafe around the corner. The apartment was decorated lovely, had lots of light and both the double bed and single beds were very comfortable. The lounge/bed was a bit uncomfortable. The bathroom and kitchen were good, and the apartment was very clean. It was good to have a dishwasher and a washing machine, however, there was no where to hang wet clothes only around the apartment.

"Convenient location"

A very well equipped apartment with a nice selection of books, some children's games and lots of information on local attractions and getting around London. The location was excellent - a 5 minute walk to local shops and Archway Station. A lovely welcome hamper awaited us.

"fabulous holiday flat, high spec, great location...loved it!!"

Arrived to a fantastic welcome hamper. Flat lovely, with high quality throughout. Very clean and comfortable. Great location with really good shops, bakers, cafes, supermarket in the immediate vicinity. Good base for easy access and transport to explore London. Exactly what I needed. Would recommend it to my friends without hesitation.

"Fantastic Apartment, we had a great time"

We booked this apartment in Islington to see in the new year with my family. We had such a great time. lots of nightlife near by, good size rooms with everything we could wish for. We have two small boys and there was plenty of room for them, a large TV and wifi kept them happy, while my wife and I enjoyed a relaxing break after christmas. I really enjoyed the location and had a seriously fun time showing my kids what london has to offer. We'll be back.

"Fantastic place"

With my wife and 3 children we spent 5 nights in this place. Absolutely nothing to complain about. Very nice appartment, nicely furnished and decorated, with two bedroom and a large living room. All is fully equiped (TV, WiFi, washing machine, dishwasher). The house is nice and all in a very quiet street. Many shops/restaurants around and .... only 15 minutes to central London (oxford street) by subway with a booth 5 mns walk from the house and no need to change line. Hence, if I ever go back to London, this will be my choice again.
