Oun stay in the apartment was perfect. The condition and the location are as shown in the site. Clive is a very good host and very helpful and friendly. If we go back to London this will be our accomodation. Para los visitantes hispanohablantes, Clive habla español.

Definitely stay here when visiting London

  • Submitted: Oct 2, 2012

To help others like me trying to decide which apartment to stay in, I will try to write a longer review.

I stayed from 30th Sep to 4th Oct 2011 with my parents and younger sister. All the way from Singapore!

Clive (owner of the property) replies very promptly to emails/messages/sms/phonecalls. Super important so that I know my family won't be sleeping on the streets. He was very punctual/early to meet us and to send us off.
Home is nicely decorated and clean, situated in a beautiful safe neighbourhood. Supplies were provided. Even fruits and milk, courtesy of Clive. I really appreciated that a simple local cellphone is provided and you can top up the sim card if you need to contact friends staying there or call Clive in case of any problems.
Supermarkets and cafes and the bus stops are right at your doorstep. Just across the street. Very convenient if you need to run out and buy something. People staying around the area are friendly.

The hotel we stayed in Paris was only the size of his living room and it cost about the same. Do not stay in hotels... Rent an apartment!!!

Bottom line is, I would definitely stay here again when I visit London!

It could not have been better.

Quite frankly, this was a great stay. The flat is as cute as can be — it really looks like the photos provided by the website, it is comfy and very nicely designed. Great view on the garden from the bedroom. Pleasant area, not far from St Pancras (so it connects quite well with the Eurostar) ; lots of little shops and pubs. Highly recommended for couples with a teenage child — or two young children — or two couples... You'd probably find it a little small for a couple and two teenage kids. We'll be only too happy to use it again.

We traveled through London on the way back home and it was a great pad. Clive was very helpful. We were delayed an hour for check in and this was no issue at all for Clive. He waited for us and let us in which was great. Highly recommend the stay.

We received a warm welcome from Clive's housekeeper, who had left the flat very clean and tidy. It is very convenient for walking round Islington and walk.bus/tube to Kings Cross and Central London. We enjoyed our stay and will book to stay again. Thank you!

Located in Zone 1, N1 (North 1 postal code), the apartment is the ideal location if you plan to seek out the best London has to offer across its boroughs. It's in the northern part of central (as London is so big even the center is divided into boroughs), which gives the benefit of easily being able to reach the eastern attractions (15 min bus to Brick Lane, Shoreditch, Liverpool Street area) as well as the western attractions (10 min bus to Camden, Oxford Street, Soho, Westminster, Trafalgar Square, Covent Garden and a short 5 min bus ride to Kings Cross) from the apartment.

This also means that you can walk fairly easily to the centre.

The apartment is in Barnsbury, Islington, which is one of London's most beautiful and desirable boroughs. There are shops 30 seconds from the apartment where you can buy food to cook in the apartment as well as many bars and restaurants either along the Caledonian Road (seconds away) or on the buzzing Upper Street.
