A baby crib and high chair can also be offered.

LOCATION AND TRANSPORT

The area

Angel is an eclectic neighbourhood, famous for its nightlife and collection of iconic local pubs, stylish cocktails bars, renowned international restaurants and upmarket, boutique shopping. One of the most in-demand places to live in London, this safe and eco-friendly neighbourhood is also popular with celebrities – Emma Watson, Boris Johnson, James McAvoy, Colin Firth and Lily Allen are all famous faces that have called this vibrant area home in the last few years.

Yet despite it’s amazing reputation and convenient Zone 1 location, the area still has a relaxed, trendy atmosphere. Angel is frequented by local Londoners, with fewer tourists, so you can enjoy an authentic London experience with the luxury of being close to London’s attractions if you wish to explore the city.

The apartment is extremely close to many restaurants, shops, supermarkets and ATMs.

• There are 10 coffee shops within 20 metres

• There is a shopping centre 100 metres away

• There are 3 supermarkets within 50 metres

• There is a 24/7 convenience store just next door

Getting around

The apartment is located on Upper Street, an extremely accessible location for all of Central London, North, South, East or West and with unbeatable transport links.

Angel tube station and Highbury-Islington tube station are both 5 minutes walk away and there is a bus stop right outside the apartment. You can even rent bicycles from automatic stations nearby.

There is public (pay and display) parking for your car, should you chose to drive into London. You can park on the street, or a nearby indoor carpark. However, we recommend public transport instead, as it’s far easier and quicker to explore London in this way.

• Oxford Street (15 minutes)

• Camden Lock Market (20 minutes)

• Regent’s Park (20 minutes)

• British Museum (20 minutes)

• Old Street and Silicone Roundabout (10 minutes)

• St Paul’s Cathedral (20 minutes)

• Shoreditch (15 minutes)

• Westminster (30 minutes)

• West End (30 minutes)

• Southbank (30 minutes)

Getting to the apartment from the airport is easy using public transport (tube, train or bus) but it’s more economical to hire a private taxi if you have a lot of luggage or many guests. I will give you the information to book this.

Our local recommendations

• Walk down to the Turkish restaurant next door for a mix-grill or Turkish breakfast; or even a full English breakfast at the Workers Café with some real London people.

• Have brunch at Ottolenghi, the flagship branch of the world-famous restaurant and patisserie. The cosy venue is minutes from the apartment, where you can enjoy incredible French toast, brownies, smoked salmon breakfasts and colourful salads.

• Enjoy a cocktail and fine dining at Hoxley & Porter, or a traditional pint at the Hope & Anchor pub.

• Buy your groceries from one of the exceptional London supermarkets or organic food stores such as Planet Organic, Waitrose or Marks & Spencer’s.

• The Blow Bar is a must-visit if you’re going somewhere special on your London visit. This boutique hair bar will wash, blow dry and style your hair in just 30 minutes.

• Diverse is a beautiful clothing boutique loved by local fashionistas where you can buy the latest chic pieces from Diane von Furstenberg, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Isabel Marant and See by Chloe.

• See a live gig at Union Chapel, a beautiful Grade II listed church that has been converted into an unbeatable live music venue.

• Family-friendly attractions in the area include the Geffrye Museum and it’s splendid Kid’s Zone, the V&A Museum of Childhood, London Zoo and an abundance of parks and outdoor spaces such as Highbury Fields, Victoria Park, Regent’s Park and London Fields. The cafes in the area also welcome families.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in the flat which is just as described. It is also quiet and you have everything you need to feel home. The area is lively and full of nice restaurants and bars. The tube is nearby. The center of London is about 20 min from the flat's door. I strongly recommend this flat and would definitely love to return there during my next visit in London!

Wonderful Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

My 13 year old son, husband and myself stayed at this property for 3 nights last week. Actually, we rented this apartment but then Paulo, the manager, contacted us before our arrival and upgraded us to his 2 bedroom apartment in the same building. Awesome! The whole booking process easy and Paulo very accessable, responding to my emails within hours. All information given about the property is exactly as we found it. The beds were amazingly comfortable, loved the Nespresso machine and washing machine and the location was perfect. So many shops and restaurants on this street you won't know how to pick. Don't miss Kili's Restaurant on Theberton St. Our waiter, Roberto, was fabulous! Also, loved Fox On The Green.

We booked for 4 nights but had to leave after 3. Even so, we still felt like we got a great deal. Paulo's agent met us when we arrived and explained everything in the apartment to us. Check out was effortless. Will definitely stay here again!

Fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in London. The location of the apartment was perfect with easy access to the tube and bus service. After a long day of sightseeing there were plenty of places to eat a late meal in the neighborhood. The apartment was fully equipped with everything we needed. The property staff were friendly and quickly responded to our questions. Thanks for making our first trip to London a great experience!

Very deceiving - not what it is.

  • 1 of 5

The photos and description on the web site are not accurate. The apartment is extremely small, the bathroom is grungy, the windows must be closed otherwise the mice come in, the outside terrace faces a huge noisy generator with a backyard of junk. The apartment is above a restaurant which make the unit VERY smoky- which is not outlined on the web description. The stairs are impossible to maneuver with any lugguage. The bathroom has mold with a non working flush. Because the windows are required to be closed, it is extremely hot and stuffy, especially in July. Paulo is dishonest and not really willing to help. He would not consider giving any concession in terms of payment even though we only stayed one night but paid for 10! Abominable customer service and gross misrepresentation. Beware!

Owner's Response: The guest booked 10 nights but had a change of plans and left after the first night, but we cannot book peak season and refund when guests change their plans at the last minute. This review is entirely false- every single bit of it is fantasy and with evil intent to hinder. I don't understand the reason for this frustration but will not be doing business with this person again. There are many other reviews from other guests to testify to how nice my apartment really is. For clarity- every single bit of information described above is simply FALSE entirely. The only truth is that the guest booked 10 nights but stayed only 1. Unfortunately we cannot refund cancelations less than 60 days before arrival. The guest was very unreasonable at all stages. I will not recommend anyone entertaining this person for rentals.

Great location, perfect space, great charm!

  • 5 of 5

I travelled to London with my wife and two young daughters and we had a perfect stay in the flat. It was just the right size for the four of us and had all the amenities and function that we needed. On top of an amazing place the location is outstanding. We could be anywhere in central London via angel or highbury/islington in minutes. Thanks for an awesome experience!!

Angel and Highbury and Islington underground stations are on the same street as the apartment. St.Pancras station and its Eurostar terminal to Paris and Brussels is less than a 20-minute walk away. Many buses into the centre and other parts of London can be found literally on your doorstep, and the West End can be reached in 15 minutes.

Famous for its nightlife, buzzing Angel offers an impressive choice of entertainment, from bars and restaurants, to renowned theatres such as the Almeida and Sadler’s Well Dance Theatre. Several live music venues are also close by, the Union Chapel, O2 Academy Islington and The Garage to mention some. And right on Upper Street: “Union Chapel is one of the most beautiful settings to enjoy live music in London and has a totally unique atmosphere” said Tim Arthur, editor-in-chief of Time Out London. The Grade-II listed church in Compton Street, Islington, beat competition from Brixton Academy and the Royal Albert Hall to take the top spot in Time Out magazine’s poll.

Other well-known attractions in the area include the Dickens Museum, the London Canal Museum, Camden Passage Antiques Market, Chapel Market, Columbia Road Flower Market, Brick Lane, Broadway Market, Spitalfields and Petticoat Lane. The Emirates football stadium is within walking distance, or a quick bus ride away.

The area is family friendly with attractions like the Geffrye Museum and its splendid Kids’ Zone and the V&A Museum of Childhood. There is an abundance of parks and outdoor spaces such as Highbury Fields, London Fields, Clissold Park and De Beauvoir Square. There is a wide array of child friendly cafes both on Upper Street and in surrounding areas.
