A light, spacious and quiet double room in my two bedroom apartment. Excellent and easy transport connections to the City and all over London. Close to a great mix of shops, bars and restaurants in vibrant Angel, Islington.

Flexible check in by arrangement

The space

I hope you will enjoy this light, spacious and comfortable place to stay in central London. I am happy to welcome guests for long or short stays. The flat is professionally cleaned once a week. Recently [Summer 2017], new wooden floors have been laid throughout, including the guest bedroom, and a new kitchen has been installed, so the airbnb pictures are a little out of date, but you will be pleasantly surprised when you arrive. New pictures soon.

YOUR BEDROOM is simple and clean. It is a large double [4.15x3.25m] with a double bed, plenty of space, plenty of storage, a large, south-facing window and rooftop views. The room is at the back of the building and the windows are double-glazed, so very quiet. I provide fresh cotton linen and towels.

Please note I have recently replaced some furniture, [since Airbnb took the photographs], so there is a new hanging unit replacing the wardrobe, new lighting and new mirrors.

THE BATHROOM is lovely, clean and new with a huge shower, two washbasins, tiled floor and walls.

THE LIVING ROOM is large and bright, with wooden flooring. A friend described it to me as comfortable, quirky and welcoming, a nice space in which to relax. Very pleasant to lean back and watch the clouds go by through the skylight to the roof.

THE KITCHEN is well equipped. I think you will find everything you might need.

THE APARTMENT is on the top floor of a listed building within a Conservation Area. You will be close to the many smart, trendy and eclectic shops, markets, bars, restaurants, independent cinema and theatre that have made Islington a smart and popular London Borough.

Guest access

There is 24/7 wifi with good connection throughout the apartment.

The bedroom has space for hanging your clothes, drawers, shelves, mirrors, bedside light. An iron, a hairdryer, an umbrella are there if you need them.

The shared bathroom is fresh and clean, newly fitted, with an enormous walk-in shower and separate washbasins and storage.

In the kitchen please observe the disposal of rubbish in the small bin and recycling items in the large one. Both are collected daily from the street just outside the apartment.

There is pay and display parking right outside the building.

Interaction with guests

I will be happy to welcome you and to offer you a comfortable 'home' from which to explore the city. It is nice to share an occasional chat but of course I will respect your privacy. You are always welcome to ask for any information you need. I am a born-and-bred London so I know the city well.
Families welcome and on occasion I can also offer baby-sitting for guests.

When you book, please let me know your preferred check in and check out times.

Ella made us most welcome and was available throughout our short stay. She went out of her way to give her directions to our evening venue and suggested places to eat for breakfast,. a cup of tea on arrival was most welcome. I can't remember if it was made clear on the listing page, but the two flights of stairs to the delightful apartment were quite challenging

A laid back Londoner who will be happy to welcome you and respectful of your space and privacy - whether you are here for business or pleasure, for a long or a short stay.

If you ask I will be happy to point you in the direction of my favourite music and dance venues, galleries, museums, restaurants, markets. London offers so much choice and there is always something interesting happening.

I also love to travel, mostly to visit friends in warm, sunny places.
