The loft apartment is bright and sunny and situated in a striking funky decorated building. The apartment is furnished with modern designer furniture and has gas central heating throughout. The kitchen has oven, gas hob, washing machine. A microwave can be provided if required. WiFi will be available on request at additional cost.
The ground floor studio is modern and recently refurbished to a high standard. The studio is accessed by a private path and has access to a small patio. The studio has restricted views out and is lit by an internal light well hence the affordable rate for such a stunning place! Mod cons include dishwasher, combi microwave and conventional oven, washing machine, bath and shower, dining for 2, sofa bed and private patio.
Small and very beautiful, in a very good position, nothing to say about the flat, but... I was there in my holidays last summer, and since an year I'm still waiting the owners to give me back my deposit fee. Don't trust in these "persons", they will steal your money.
In the first day I had a litlle difficulty to find the studio; my flight delayed and nobody was waiting for me. The corridor until to arrive the studio was very dirty, causing a bad impression. The internet service can be better. I spent $30 paunds more to have a service no interruption and this value wasn't in my plans. I considered this value very expensive! The studio was clean and everthing that I needed I had there. Thank you very much for everthing !!!
Overall I found this apartment to be good value for money. The location is great and overall, despite there being some negatives, I would recommend this apartment to visitors looking to experience something a little less touristy.
+ great location in terms of public transport with buses within a 2 minute walk, underground and overground trains within around 10 minutes
+ sainsburys very close nearby
+ good value for what the apartment is
+ great pub nearby as well as other places to eat
+ bathroom is quite nice and decently fitted and the underfloor heating there was appreciated, especially in the extremely cold weather
+ Friendly, understanding and helpful service, especially pre-arrival which was fantastic!
- internet is not included in the rental
- Extremely thin walls (could hear multiple people walking on the steps early morning as well as children playing in the apartment above)
-no heating besides the bathroom floor and corridor which in winter was a bit of a struggle. A small heater supplied would have been great
-kitchen utensils and appliances were very dirty on arrival and the apartment was slightly shabby in general in terms of chipped wallpaper and paint peeling on the floor etc but nothing major
I really enjoyed my stay in this cozy little apartment in a residential area close to finsbury park.it is not an area you usually visit when you're in London, and I loved it!it is safe(a was a girl alone!), you have everything you need just around the corner(having sainsbury so close was a plus!) and it is easy to reach with both piccadilly and victoria lines. I think it's perfect for one or two people and it has everything you need:it is clean, newly refurbished, fully equipped kitchen.....just one imperfection: noisy neighbour, I think because of the thin walls!I honestly find that the wifi connection should be included in the rental price too!I had a very warm welcome with flowers and a bottle of wine on the table and a good assisting from the owner when the dtv was not working anymore. I'll for sure recommend this apt to my friends and family but, above all, I'll come back soon!
The neighbourhood is known as Stroud Green which is between Finsbury Park and Crouch End. The main high street, Stroud Green Road has numerous restaurants, pubs and bars, most notable being The Old Dairy which is just 2 minutes walk from the apartment. Supermarkets are also just 2 minutes walk away. Nearby Crouch End has an extensive range of great urban chic restaurants of international cuisine. Finsbury park tube station is 5- 10 minutes walk and provides quick access to central London visitor attractions due to having the Victoria line, the Piccadilly line('entertainment' line) and also overground rail to around the country.
