It is in a new trendy development located between two canal basins in Islington. I stayed 9 nights with my daughter and everything did well exceed my expectations.
The neighbourhood is safe to walk back at night, perfect if not the constructions sites in the district. But the flat faces the garden side, quiet day and night, only a delight to hear birds sing & ducks quack in the morning. All furnitures & amenities are of contemporary design and fine standard. A walnut wood bench for work and floor to ceiling blackout curtains were just added. It’s ideal even for long stay with its well equipped kitchen and powerful washer+dryer. 24h concierge helped me keep my luggage as I arrived too early in the morning for check-in but when I came back in the evening, our host Edmund has already moved them up. It’s my first time checking in with Airbnb and all I have to do is to have the host show us around and get the keys.
The closest bus stops are 5 minutes away on busy City Road. Route 205 stops by all railway stations for us, Euston to the Midlands, King Cross/Paddington to Heathrow, and Marylebone to Bicester Village. Uber is always somewhere around. It’s about 10-12 minutes walk through City Road to either Old tube station or Angel tube station, both in Zone 1. There are many alternatives and I use (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) App to find the easiest route.
It’s a pleasure walking by the leafy waterway to Angel Station. On a sunny Sunday afternoon there were parties having BBQ on board and playing inflatable floating boat along the canal. Angel is a vibrate area treasured by Londoners with many good size branches of essential big brands around the station, Boots, M&S, HSBC, Boots, Three, Muji, Salisbury and a street market selling fresh fruit and flowers called Chapel Market. Don’t miss Camden Passage there which is notable for vintage boutiques and many lovely cafes, Victoria Miro Gallery for contemporary art and two Jamie Oliver’s restaurants just steps away.
Edmund is very considerate and I can't recommend to anyone highly enough!
