“Wonderful apartment in friendly neighbourhood”

Reviewed 29 Oct 2015

We stayed a family of 5 from Iceland on school break for four days. The apartment is clean and has all you wish for (even a blowdryer :-) Our kids loved it and so did we. We had to walk about 10 minutes to the Underground station to travel downtown, but that was refreshing. The owners are very friendly and the service is perfect.

“All you need for a comfortable stay!”

Reviewed 3 Sep 2015

A gem of an apartment in a great location. The fact that one of our children told Warren that she was making herself at home when we first arrived says it all! It really is a home from home, great facilities, clean and tidy apartment. Everything you need for a great stay and a bottle of vino too. We'll definitely be back, thank you Ian!

“Good stay”

Reviewed 13 May 2015

We came as a family with an 8 year old and a 16 year old . The apartment is comfortable , spacious and well renovated . The neighborhood is quiet . The first metro station is a bit far from the apartment. Warren, who welcomed us was really friendly . I recommend this choice to all those who want to go to London and not far from the center being comfortably installed.

“Très bel appartement, confortable et bien situé.”

Reviewed 27 Apr 2015

L'appartement est situé dans une rue très calme avec peu de voitures qui passent. C'est très facile et rapide de rejoindre le centre en bus ou en métro. L'appartement est très confortable, bien décoré et très propre. Les gestionnaires sont très arrangeants en ce qui concerne les horaires d'arrivée et de départ. Bref une très bonne location.

“Great apartment, very helpful owner and manager”

Reviewed 21 Aug 2014

This is a great apartment (stayed with my hubby and 2 teenagers), the directions were fabulous, great communication with the owner and manager and no hassles whatsoever. Its a bit of a trek (10 minutes) to the Tube especially with luggage (Ian tried to warn me though :)) but the neighborhood has everything you need. Would stay here again!

“Perfect stay for London travel.”

Reviewed 28 Jul 2014

We arrived after a long flight and were met by Warren at the apartment. He is a lovely, friendly guy who gave us a lot of information on the local area etc. The apartment is well stocked and thoughtfully set out with all you need for a relaxing break.The location is fantastic for London as it is only a 10 min tube ride from the city and then you are in the peaceful retreat of Highbury. The local area is good for all your shopping needs and the park was beautiful on a summer's evening. Ian was always available to communicate with as we prepared for the trip and the wine he left for us in the apartment was amazing! We will definitely return if we can get a booking in the future! Thank you.

“Fantastic Spring Week in London”

Reviewed 15 Jul 2014

My eldest son and I stayed at Fichi in the City in London. It was wonderful-- clean, well appointed, quiet, etc. It was handily close to 2 underground stops. I would recommend this apartment to anyone traveling to London.

“Great apartment, fantastic location, wonderful service.”

Reviewed 29 Jan 2014

We loved our stay in Ian's apartment. The apartment was very comfortable and clean, and equipped with everything we needed for a most enjoyable stay. The Highbury location is fantastic - a really nice neighbourhood with restaurants, bars, shops etc and a short 10-15 minute walk to two tube stations. Ian was very friendly and helpful, quick to respond to emails, and Warren his property manager was also a pleasure to deal with. This will definitely be our first choice to stay when we are next back in London.

“a home away from home”

Reviewed 23 Jan 2014

service was excellent, flat was clean, bright & well furnished. located handy to shops and restaurants, bus stop at the bottom of the road, 2 tube stations within 12-15 minutes walk, Arsenal, on the Picadilly line, is a straight run from Heathrow.

“Marvelous”

Reviewed 3 Oct 2013

Our stay at Fichi in the city, was a wonderful experience ! We three ladies enjoyed all of the marvelous conveniences, and just a short bus ride, on no 19, to Picadilly Circus. A short walk to all that Highbury has to offer, would absolutely return ! Ian, responded very quickly to my e mails... Thanks Ian!
