The apartement is clean, spacious and well maintained and the lady who welcomed us was cheerful and helpful. Although the apartment is on Uppper Street and above a café, the bedroom is at the back and even if there was noise on the street during the evening and night, it didn't stop us sleeping. The kitchen is large and well equipped and preparing meals is no problem. We never met the owner but he responded promptly and efficiently to e-mails during the booking process and left a thick and comprehensive book of very useful instructions and recommendations. An I-Pod dock, a mobile phone (Nokia 610) and a Nespresso machine were additional nice touches. Buses to and from Kings Cross/St. Pancras and the West End pass in front of the door every ten minutes; underground and overground stations are within walking distance, as are small shops and large supermarkets. Two slight problems are: 1) the steep staircase up to the apartment - travelers with large suitcases might find this a problem and 2) access to the bathroom is only through the main bedroom, which is fine for families but not perhaps for two couples. It worked fine for us, one couple and 1 young single. In short, a pleasant and well-run apartment which added to our enjoyment of being in swinging London!
