Great location to see all the sights from. The neighborhood looks a bit rough but I found folks very friendly and the apartment itself is quiet nice and nicely appointed. The wifi and cable worked well and the host provided great instructions on how to operate everything. There are a couple of good grocery options and one Asian market immediately adjacent that had many tasty things and a Tesco just a bit farther down for everything else. The laundry in the apartment is fine but there is a laundry just a few short blocks walk if you, like us, had a larger load to do. They also offer a service and I had weeks worth of laundry done, dried and folded for a family of 4 for 16 pounds. Transportation is easy with two stops just outside the door and a couple of tube options Old Street and Liverpool just a bit farther walk or short bus ride away. Enjoy!!
