5 of 5
Our family of four (two children aged 10 and 11) stayed at this property for a week in July 2014. We were met promptly by the property manager, Warren, who gave us a thorough tour of the apartment and demonstrated how everything worked. The apartment itself was even better in person - we loved the wall of windows in the lounge overlooking the canal. We liked the configuration of the two bedrooms (twin beds in the second bedroom) as this was perfect for our children. At first I was concerned that the mattress in the master bedroom seemed pretty firm (I prefer a softer mattress) but I slept wonderfully. Having two full bathrooms was a definite plus and made getting ready in the mornings much easier. The apartment was very clean and well-stocked. The clothes dryer was not working when we stayed there but Warren was working hard to get it sorted out. In any event, there was a large clothes drying rack available for use and we got along just fine with that. The weather was quite warm during part of our visit but you could generate a lovely cross-breeze by opening windows at both ends of the apartment. As mentioned by other reviewers, there is a lot of construction going on the area but the noise did not disturb us at all - the windows are really amazing and block out all sound. My one tip is that if you like to sleep in a bit later, make sure you shut the door between the kitchen/lounge and the hallway leading to the bedrooms before you go to bed as the sun coming through the canal-side windows in the morning is very bright (you could always just shut the door to the bedrooms too). We enjoyed the Angel/Islington area and found the walk to the tube very easy. It was nice to come back to the apartment at the end of the day and feel like you were away from the hustle and bustle of central London. There were lots of restaurants and shops within an easy 5-10 minute walk. This apartment exceeded our expectations and we recommend it without hesitation. Thank you Warren!

Die sehr schöne Wohnung war der perfekte Ausgangspunkt für eine London-Woche. Das Haus ist sehr ruhig, die Wohnung ist sehr sauber und großzügig. Warren Price hat uns sehr sehr freundlich empfangen, danke Warren! Bis zur nächsten Tube-Station sind es knapp 10 Minuten Fußweg. Auch der Stadtteil Islington bietet sehr viel, Einkaufsmöglichkeiten und Restaurants sind nahe. Eine Empfehlung für London-Reisende!
My daughter, friend and I stayed in the flat for a girls week. It was perfect. The flat was very clean, well appointed, very comfortable and in a great location. Much better than the photos on the website. I highly recommend it. Warren was very helpful and very easy to work with - thank you Warren.
There is much construction along the canal but the windows are very good and we did not hear any of it. it will be an amazing canal neighborhood when the construction is finished. It's a short 5 to 7 minute walk to the underground and there are several different bus stops near by. Easy walk to food shops, pubs, restaurants. shopping and markets. Angel (Islington) is an up and coming area - one stop up from Kings Cross on the Underground - We really enjoyed the flat and the neighborhood.
We had a wonderful stay and we hope to be able to return to this apartment when we visit London in the future. The apartment is bright, cheerful, well furnished and well maintained. The photos give an accurate impression. There are little touches that many places do not include (e.g. facial tissue, paper towels, good size bars of soap). The walk to Angel tube station, partly along the Regent's Canal, is relaxing and pleasant. There is a 24 hour well-stocked shop near by as well as larger supermarkets near the Angel tube station. Warren was very responsive and helpful before our trip and very nice to meet us for our late evening arrival.
I really cannot say enough about this apartment. It is exactly as advertised- clean, well-appointed, spacious, bright, modern and perfectly located.
We stayed for 9 nights with our kids, aged 5 and 9, and initially I was concerned about the walk to the Angel tube station, but it really is just a matter of blocks, and a very pleasant walk. There is also a bus stop close by which services the King's Cross to Marylebone area (essential as the Northern Line was closed a few days during our stay- we weren't aware of the scheduled maintenance, but it made no difference with the bus service).
Angel is a lovely area with plenty of restaurants, pubs, coffee shops and grocery stores. Try Asarn (Thai), the Breakfast Club and Delhi Grill- you will not be disappointed!
Warren and his staff were excellent- check in and check out was a breeze (as was the process of booking and paying- very reputable and trustworthy- and we got our security deposit back within days of our departure). Warren even arranged very reasonably priced (and punctual!) airport transportation, a much appreciated convenience.
Only 10 minutes walk from Angel Tube station. This modern and fully furnished 2 bedroom apartment offers an ideal base for a site seeing vacation or business trip. Local attractions include shopping in Upper Street, Chapel street market, Saddlers Wells theatre, Camden passage, various restaurants in Exmouth St market and the Almeida theatre. You can walk to the Barbican centre, St Pauls, Millennium bridge and Tate Modern on the river Thames in 30 minutes. There are also good bus services near by.
In 2014 the £1134 per week is based on up to four people sharing, and staying for 7 nights or more. 6 nights would cost £162 per night. For five nights, the rate is £167 per night, and for less than five nights, by negotiation.
The price includes electricity, towels and linen. Telephone calls are extra (charged at cost).
I require a 200 pounds deposit for a firm booking. Payment should be made by Mastercard or Visa credit card and the final balance is due 1 month before arrival.
* Approximate monthly rate. Actual rate will depend on the days of the month you stay.
Payment is usually accepted in the quoted currency (GBP) unless the currency and the amount is specifically agreed in advance with the owner / advertiser.
