Interaction with Guests
As seasoned Londoners we’ll be more than happy to point you in the right direction for places to visit, local attractions, the best restaurants, pubs and bars.
The flat is within walking distance to super-fast transport links to the West End and Oxford Street; eight minutes from both Angel and Highbury & Islington underground stations; and there are also six buses that stop outside our doorstep all heading into Central London. Essex Road station is one minute away and provides an excellent link to the City (10 minutes to Moorgate Station).
We’re in the heart of Angel Islington – an area which is both amazingly convenient and very easy to fall in love with. Under five minutes from our doorstep you’ll find some of of London’s most exciting restaurants (you should definitely try Ottolenghi’s), bars, independent cinemas, coffee shops, music venues, galleries and the wonderful Almeida Theatre.
The picturesque Regents Canal is close by with its riverside bars and pubs – as are other must-sees such as nearby Camden Passage Antiques Market, eclectic Spitalfields market, Columbia Flower Market, Broadway market, Petticoat Lane and the food stalls and vintage stands in Brick Lane.

We love our home and expect you to treat it with respect. We will show you around and answer all your questions when you arrive. You will have your own keys and be able to come and go as you please. There is no smoking in the flat, but you have access to the balcony where you can smoke. We tend to leave our shoes by the entrance of the flat, in order to protect our wood floors and carpeting, and we would be grateful if you did that as well.
We had a great time in London. The room is splendid and clean. The privat bathroom is is the cherry on the pudding.
What you see is what you get. Eleni and Tom are great hosts; they let you feel at home.
There are shops in the neighborhood en Public transportation (bus) to the city for the frontdoor. Islington is nice to stay.
Eleni and Tom are a very kind and friendly couple. Their welcome was warm and their flat comfortable. So we enjoyed to stay there for our short holiday.
Tom and Eleni made us very welcome and were superb hosts.
Their home is stylish, warm and comfortable, set centrally on Angel's main street in Islington, which is vibrant, has great shops, restaurants and bars and feels safe. Access to Central London was easy and quick.
Our room was very tastefully decorated, positioned at the rear of the property making it very quiet, over looking a large private courtyard. The room and ensuite bathroom were very tastefully decorated and Tom and Eleni gave us full use of both their kitchen and lounge if we required it.
We couldn't have wished for a better first experience of Airbnb.

Tom & Eleni were great hosts. I stayed in London for 4 nights in total and the room in this apartment was great. The location is nice with a few restaurants and pubs close by. The room has an ensuite bathroom and balcony which makes it feel almost like a Studio apartment. Tom & Eleni were very friendly and helpful.
Eleni & Tom made sure we had a comfortable stay in their lovely flat. All reuqired amenities were there and the check-in process was very smooth. We will surely stay with them again.
