The apartment is on the fifteenth floor looking south west over the city of London. Some of London's greatest features are visible. It is a light and bright and airy, well appointed and very secure. I work nearby so am available to assist you. Enjoy!

The space

Two/three bedroom apartment with stunning views over central London. Walking distance to Angel and Old Street 'tube' (underground) stations. Concierge (8am to midnight weekdays, 10am to midnight weekends), main entrance access control and entryphone. All mod cons. Fully fitted and equipped kitchen, bathroom and separate WC. Plenty of storage. Bedding and towels provided.

The apartment was completely refurbished in 2010. There is quality wood flooring throughout. The bathroom and separate toilet are tiled and fitted to hotel standard. A large flat screen digital TV and internet are included.

There is a separate utility room with a washing machine and drier. Elsewhere there is plenty of storage for your suitcases so you can keep them out of the way.

The living room can be used as a third bedroom if desired, so the apartment can accommodate up to 6 people at no extra cost. Just let me know your requirements and I will arrange the furnishing accordingly.

The location is excellent for access to lively Upper Street Islington, trendy Clerkenwell, the historic City and the West End for shopping and entertainment. Across the road, the canal (see map/photo) leads to the Olympic Park to the east and to funky Camden Town to the west. The canal tow path is ideal for walking, running and cycling. If you want to rent cycles, a great way to see London, just let me know and I will arrange. You can reimburse me on arival. Bikes can be brought up in the lift and locked on the balcony outside the front door. At street level there is a stand of the famous 'Boris' bikes - urban rental bikes on a pay as you use basis! (website hidden) 'Boris Bikes' for full info.

The apartment is bright and airy, flooded with daylight and has views from every room. Large double glazed windows in every room are easy to operate and can by opened wide for fresh air and also held on restrictors - so are safe with children around.

Before you arrive professional cleaners will make everything spotless for your arrival. For a small additional charge, weekly cleaning can be provided. It's fully furnished and ready to walk in and enjoy!

This year I have taken a long let until the end of September (2014). Enquiries from October 2014 are welcome.

Guest access

There is access to all of the apartment. There is a spacious area outside the front door where bicycles can be stored/locked safely.

Interaction with guests

Check in arrangements will be confirmed in advance depending on your time of arrival. Generally the keys will be left for collection from the concierge in an envelope addressed to you. Prior to and during your stay you can contact me (Jonathan) at any time by phone, SMS and through the airbnb website for assistance.

Other things to note

The apartment is bright and airy with many openable windows. Please do not leave windows wide open while you are out. They can be secured in a slightly open position to provide ventilation without risk of rain getting in. Please refer to 'Basics' for more detail.

Jonathan's place was the perfect spot for our overnight stay in London. He was incredibly helpful in the build up, making sure everything was covered and catered for. Easy check in, great access to the city

Good sized flat in a good location. Clean. Host left milk, bread, butter, fruit etc and there's a supermarket across the road. It's on the 15th floor so great views across the rooftops. A nice walk up to Angel and on lots of bus routes. The flat itself doesn't feel particularly "homely", but a few rugs and pictures on the walls would soon fix that.

His room is abaolutely wonderful. If I had more chance to stay London, I would choose his house as top priority. It is not just his house is great, but also host Jonathan is really great and kind. He explain every details. His explamation is very easy to follow. Ome of the most greatest things in his room is the view. The view was so famtastic. Whenever other people choose this house, they will never feel regret.

We really enjoyed this location and apartment. SO much better than almost all hotel experiences I have had in London. Cannot recommend this place enough. Jonathan was a very thoughtful host. Could have happily stayed another week :-) Look forward to staying again. Thanks Jonathan

I had a fabulous stay in Jonathan's Islington apartment. The flat itself is perfect for a city stay - well equipped, clean and in a great location. I stayed here with my mum and sister for 3 nights and we had a lovely time. The view from the window is graet and we enjoyed picking out the sights from our 'skyhome'! There are buses that run everywhere pretty much within 100 meters from the apartment door which was great for my mum and sister who didn't like to take the tube. Jonathan was really helpful and went out of his way to keep me informed and to make us feel welcome at his apartment. I would highly recommend staying at Jonathans apartment.
