Excellent Central London Apartment for 2 to 4

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 10, 2012
  • Stayed: Jul 2012
We are a family of four from Evergreen Colorado - 2 adults / 2 children ages 11 & 13. We stayed for 6 nights in mid July 2012 just before the start of the Olympics. We loved the apartment and the location. Clive was great! Great communication. Very responsive via email before we arrived. He brought us extra sheets that our son used on an inflatable mattress. Although the Tube stop is a couple of blocks away, we took the 91 bus to Trafalgar Square (and another bus) nearly every day. It was much more fun being able to see the City from up high on the bus then being underground. The apartment was very quiet and very clean - everything worked - WIFI, dishwasher, washing machine. We did find it a little tight with four of us in there - but fortunately we primarily only slept in the apartment - way too much to do in the City! Lots of small shops nearby - several pubs - but we never made it out to one of the nearby pubs. If you're willing to get out of busy touristy areas and want to spend time in a real part of London - this is the place to stay!

We spent six days in this apartment in early June. Reserving the property was a very easy process and Clive was very prompt with replies to our enquiries. The apartment was clean and well positioned to public transport. We believe this apartment to be very good value and would be happy to stay there again.

The apartment was great. Clean and tidy just as advertised. Clive was very helpful as a host and attended to every need. The location was good to feel like a local. Many small take aways near by and a short walk to vibrant Upper street and local tube stations. Would highly recommend.

Great Value, Good Location, Comfy Stay

  • Submitted: Nov 1, 2011
  • Stayed: Jul 2011
Because we had a family of four (my wife and I with two children aged 5 and 7) we were looking for options that were both affordable and accommodating for four persons.

We stayed at the apartment for two nights and we all enjoyed the place. The apartment is on a side street that more or less dead ends where it connects to a busier commercial road, Caledonian Rd., so there was very little road traffic so we found it to be relatively quiet. The sofa becomes a decent size and comfortable bed and was more than adequate for both of our children to sleep on. The bedroom was small but clean, tidy, and comfy. They have a kitchenette that has all that you need to prepare your own meals, and the landlords were kind enough to leave some basic food items including fresh fruit and milk, which the children appreciated.

Along with plenty or produce markets and small shops, there is a grocery store less than five minutes walk from the apartment on Caledonian Road, and plenty of ethnic take away restaurants.

Away from Caledonian Rd., on the corner near the apartment there is a nice park (2 minute walk) with a playground for children and the neighborhood has a nice pleasant feel to it.

We took the tube from Paddington Station since we flew into Heathrow and used the Highbury & Islington Station, but I would recommend (as Clive did) the Caledonian Road Station – or spend the 20 quid on a taxi to drop you off at the door with your luggage (15 – 20 minute ride.) For getting around the city, there is an Overground Station 5 minutes away to connect you to the rest of the transport system.

By London standards, we thought the apartment was a great value and far better than staying in a hotel and would recommend this apartment to others.

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 centre 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.
