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.

• Other places to visit nearby include the Dickens Museum, Camden Market, St Paul’s Cathedral, The Crystal Maze, Emirates Stadium, Spitalfields Market, Brick Lane and much more.

Great apartment in a great neighborhood

My group really enjoyed our stay in Paulo's apartment with it's great location by nearby public transportation and local restaurants. The apartment itself was cozy for my group of three, but supplied everything that we needed and was a great stay!

Nice Flat and perfectly located

  • 5 of 5

This is a great apartment in a such a fun neighborhood. There are so many bars and restaurants in the area. It wa was ideally located between 2 tube stations, either Highbury & Islington or the Angel. Either station would get us to the city center within 20 minutes. This flat had everything we needed, wifi, full kitchen, with a washer. We loved the location and would go back. This flat was perfect for us a family of 5. Paulo and his team were so accommodating and professional.

All services required and those extra details from fast WIFI to international 5-way adaptors and USB chargers on the walls and extra sleeping beds for extra guests at no cost.

Nice apartment in a good location

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was an easy walk from the Highbury/Islington station. It looks like it does in the pictures on the website. Everything was clean when we arrived. As other guests said, there are different kinds of restaurants nearby and you'll be sure to find something you like. The one drawback was the noise from the karaoke bar next door, on Friday and Saturday nights. We should have complained to Paulo or his staff on Saturday morning but didn't, so that was our fault. We did see an earlier complaint a few years ago but nothing since then, so we thought it had been taken care of. Other than that, the other nights were very quiet. The location is good and it's easy to find your way with either the bus (right across the street) or the trains. Paulo answered our questions (via emails) promptly. We ate at the Blue Legume, Nem Nem, Isarn, The Bull, Belle Epoque, Workers Cafe and Udderlicous. All are on Upper St and were very good.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your fine review and am glad you enjoyed my clean and comfortable apartment. If any neighbors or local business makes noise past 10H00pm, we can very quickly inform them and they'll have to stop immediately. A polite complaint directly is enough- as we did years ago and it stopped. Sometimes new pub managers may not be aware of how their music travels - but close collaboration and feedback solve these challenges, and very swiftly- because the local government take quiet times very seriously here. Thank you for your feedback it's been acted on.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the flat, it was clean and very comfortable. The entrance is located on a street that has dozens of resteraunts and bars. Basically we walked out the door to all the amenities you could imagine. The train is only a few blocks away we downloaded the Tube Map App and it was great to navigate though the subway system as well buy an Oyster card to swipe in and out of subway. It is easy to get to Oxford street, or Picadilly Circus only 15 minutes. We had breakfast daily from one of the 4 bakeries located on the block food was delicious. Area is very safe and people are friendly we recommend this vrbo.

Great apartment in great neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

My son and I visited London from Texas and stayed in this apartment. First of all, the customer service was great. Our flight was delayed 3 1/2 hours. Since we were originally supposed to arrive prior to check-in time, Paolo's team was available to let us in early to drop our luggage off--of course we ended up being late, but still prior to check-in time. The apartment was clean and had all of the conveniences we needed- power adapters, coffee maker, hair dryer, etc. The location was great for public transportation. We thought we would travel by tube most of the time, but there are 4 bus routes right outside the door which took us just about anywhere we wanted to go. The booklet in the apartment had great tips for dining, transportation and things to do around London as well as guides for appliances and furniture in the apartment. We enjoyed breakfast at the Workers' Café downstairs and had Sunday Roast at the Pig and Butcher on Liverpool Street, which was very good, too! Another meal we enjoyed in the neighborhood was the Coq au Vin at La Petite Auberge on Upper Street.

All in all, a great stay
