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

Perfect flat, perfect location, wonderful host

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in Paulo's outstanding flat for 2 months and immediately felt at home. The flat is well-equipped, clean, comfortable, and the location is unbeatable. The bedroom is in the back of the flat, allowing for quiet and peaceful evenings while at your doorstep are all the restaurants and nightlife of Angel/Islington. I would recommend this to single travelers/couples visiting London for the long-term or short-term guests looking for a solid base in one of London's best neighborhoods. Already looking forward to my next visit!

Amazingly central and well-appointed flat in one of the best neighbourhoods in London!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this flat while in London for work rather than staying at hotel. It was definitely the right decision as the location was very convenient (all I had to do was cross the road and catch No. 4 bus to get the office) which it made it great for business and pleasure (most of my friends met me in and around Upper Street).

Paul and team are like clockwork and everything worked to plan (getting keys, etc.). Everything was as advertised (which is always a worry when staying somewhere new). I was not disappointed and I will stay here again.
