Best decision! Highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed in this flat for two weeks this July, with my husband and my kids of 5 and 8.

We were looking for a comfortable, spacious, safe and clean place for a reasonable price where we could feel at home during our vacances in London. Well located but far enough from busiest London streets (only three tube stations from Oxford Circus).

We found all that mentioned at this flat in Islington. A lively neighborhood even at night (at least in summer days...) full of restaurants, cafés, bars...(we only sorry not to have had a baby sitter!) as well as shops and supermarkets. Buses almost at the door and a short walking distance from two tube stations.

The apartment is exactly as in the pictures and video shown here. When we arrived felt as if we would already have stayed there before!

Everything we used worked well, we found all supplies we needed, especially a fully equiped kitchen. Both Bed and sofá were very confortable.

Watching a starry sky since terrace at nights was really an unespected plus......fifteen fully sunny days in London !!! ( ....was Paulo's team who managed this too?!)

We'll be back for sure.

Owner's Response: Thank very much for your kind words. My team and i will make sure to do more of what we do, to keep our guest satisfied and the apartment at its best and even better. We just installed a new NESPRESSO coffee machine, to offer good refreshing coffee to our guests, as well as new other additions.

Paul cancelled shortly before our trip

  • 1 of 5

Paul claimed a water heater issue and that he tried to find an alternative apartment but could not. Although last minute we did find an alternative on HomeAway. Why couldn't Paul? We were lucky that our visit to London was off season. I suspect that if it were Summer we may not have been able to find an apartment. Earlier reviews show that Paul has done this before.

Owner's Response: The only occasion a reservation might be canceled is when payment is not made timely after several reminders, suspicion of payment fraud, guest planning activities that are not permitted in the property or in case of emergency repairs (such as heating or hot water systems or gas). On occasions guests may also cancel their trip. Over more than 10 years we experienced rare instances of severe maintenance where we'd have to relocate or cancel a reservation.

Excelente alojamiento. Mejor trato.

  • 5 of 5

El apartamento es exactamente igual que en las fotos. Es muy acogedor y sobre todo muy funcional. Tiene una cama de matrimonio, un sofá cama y una cama individual hinchable. Nosotros estuvimos 5 personas y estuvimos realmente cómodos. La cocina tiene absolutamente de todo y si quieres hacer planes en Londres de estar en casa (algo que no recomiendo) tienes TV por cable, Wifi, varias películas en DVD y hasta una Play Station con juegos. Tiene sabanas, toallas y champú y gel en el baño, y sobre todo una buena calefacción para el duro invierno de Londres. Si viajas en época de verano, tiene una amplia terraza para cenar o tomar algo (Nosotros no la pudimos usar. Era Noviembre). Y algo importante del apartamento: no tiene la sucia moqueta que caracteriza a los alojamientos de Londres.

La zona es muy tranquila y a escasos pasos tienes varios supermercados. Está la parada de metro de Angel (Zona 1) a unos 600 metros y la parada de Highbury Islington (Zona 1-2) a unos 400 metros, además de alguna parada de autobús a pocos metros de la puerta.

Lo mejor de todo fue la comunicación con Paul. Todas mis preguntas a través del mail eran resueltas en pocas horas con total profesionalidad. Me envió varios emails con información turística de Londres y unas instrucciones totalmente detalladas del apartamento. A nuestra llegada, el transfer del aeropuerto se retrasó y tuvimos que llamar para decir que nos retrasábamos un poco. No hubo ningún problema. Nos esperaba en el apartamento Ana, la cual nos dio una cálida bienvenida y nos explicó todo detalladamente y muy amablemente. Un encanto de persona.

A nuestra salida, siendo que no había nadie que entrara ese día, Paul nos dio la posibilidad de dejar las maletas en el apartamento hasta la salida del avión.


- Excelente apartamento

- Excelente precio

- Excelente zona

- Excelente el trato de Paul y todo su equipo

Si vuelvo a Londres, sin duda, volveré a contactar con Paul

Owner's Response: Translated of the Review to English The apartment is exactly like the pictures. It is very comfortable and above all very functional. It has a double/king size in fact bed, a sofa bed and an inflatable single bed. We were 5 people and we were really comfortable. The kitchen has absolutely everything and if you want to make plans in London to be at home (which I do not recommend) you have cable TV, wireless, several DVD movies and even a Play Station games. It has sheets, towels and shampoo and body wash in the bathroom, and above all a good heating for the cold winter in London. If you travel in summer, it has a large terrace for dinner or drinks (we could not use. It was November). And importantly the apartment: no dirty carpet that characterizes London accommodations. The area is very quiet and within walking distance you have supermarkets. It is the Angel tube stop (Zone 1) at 600 meters and stop Highbury Islington (Zone 1-2) about 400 meters, plus a bus stop a few meters from the door. Best of all was the communication with Paul. All my questions through the mail were resolved in a few hours with complete professionalism. I sent several emails with tourist information and a London apartment fully detailed instructions. Upon arrival, the airport shuttle was delayed and had to call to say we retrasábamos a little. There was no problem. We waited in the apartment Ana, which gave us a warm welcome and explained everything in detail and very kindly. A charming person. Upon our departure, there was no one still to come in that day, Paulo gave us the possibility to leave luggage in the apartment until departure of the aircraft. In short: - Excellent apartment - Great Price - Excellent area - Excellent treatment of Paul and his team If I go back to London, definitely, I will contact Paulo

Spacious, clean & comfortable w Roof Terrace

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time I stayed at Paulo's apartment and I loved my visit. The apartment is on the doorstep of several cafes, restaurants & supermarkets. It is clean, comfortable and well-kept. The bed is really comfortable and the kitchen is fully-equipped with a Nespresso machine.

I was met on arrival and found a thorough instructions manual with information to everything I might need - Instructions for any appliances, directions to nearby attractions & other useful things. The 2 wifi connections are speedy. Will definitely be coming next time I am working in London.
