I've spent in this lovely flat only one week in August -unfortunately, because if I could I would move there- with 4 friends of mine.
The location is perfect: you have to walk about... 20, 30 meters to reach the bus station and in 20 minutes you'll be in the centre of London -and I hardly recommend it if you're a tourist because you'll get to see the view. But, of course, you can also walk to the Tube Station (Highbury and Islington, Victoria Line), which is very very close -a 3, 4 minutes walk- and in that way you'll be in (f.i.) Oxford Street before you even realize it.
In Islington I think there's all a human being could possibly need: a very well assorted choice of restaurants, pub, shops, markets... The great thing is that you have just to go down the stairs and you'll find like a parade of cafès (that's the kind of things you thank for when you're late and hungry at the same time) and even a market, so if you need something you can easily get it there.
The apartment was bright (I loved the windows in the living room), spacious (even for 5 people), clean and well-maintained; everything we used worked perfectly and the kitchen, in particular, was even more equipped than mine at home. All the beds were very confortable -also the inflatable one- and there were lots of hangers for our clothes.
Paulo and his team were so gentle and polite and always available for any kind of requests. We were met by a very sweet welcomer, Anita, who showed us around and answered our questions and even if it was late she had a big smile on her face and she has been very kind: she made us feel like we were at home and we appreciated it very much.
We also loved the terrace in the back of the building: there's a colorful big painting on the wall and you can look at it also from the kitchen -there's a big window upon the sink. Anyway, if we hadn't been late every day we spent there, we'd really loved to enjoy a breakfast in the garden.
I'll be back for sure and I would strongly recommend this apartment to anyone who wants to visit London. I promise you, you won't regret this.
Thanks Paulo and team!
