Islington is a great area to live and the perfect base for a trip to London. There are almost 100 restaurants on the high street along with cafes, coffee shops and a shopping centre.
The people who live here are a real mix - you won't be bored if you enjoy people watching. There is plenty to do in the evenings, the West End is a short bus ride away and there are lots of green spaces.
Getting around is incredibly easy - there are bus, tube (Underground) and train links to take you anywhere you desire.
There is a bus stop directly opposite the flat.
Angel tube is 8 minutes walk away (or faster by bus).
Kings Cross and St Pancras International are also a short bus ride away.

Thanks Aaron! Everything was great and we had an amazing time in London. We appreciated all of your help.
Aaron made us feel very welcome. He was quickly available when contacted prior to our arrival, same when we got there he was ready as expected. He was very responsive to any queries.
We were able to store our bigger suitcase at the flat before our due time in later in the day, it was no problem.
When we got in to get the keys he took the time to show us around the flat and gave us any tips required about the place and its amenities. The flat was as described and all our requirements had been taken care of, like getting the sofa bed ready ahead of our arrival, etc.
It was very clean and nothing was missing. The Airbnb listing was very accurate.
Aaron issues you with a guest check-list upon booking which let you specify what you prefer for breakfast and other useful infos, and then he applies your wishes.
He also provides you with a lot of guides, leaflets and a complete book of personal infos of his about the neighbourhood and places to go, his "insider's" tips.
In the neighbourhood the transports connections are great, a lot of bus lines, very frequent, Angel subway station very close by, same for Essex Road railway station. There are a lot of various restaurants and bars for all budgets nearby.
The checkout formalities were very practical and completely hassle-free.
To recap, everything was as good as expected and Aaron proved to be a great and available host.
If you are looking for a warm and feel like home place, this is the one you can find in London. This apartment equipped with phone and computer where you cannot find in other places. The owner even offered us fresh groceries after our arrival. This apartment is closed to supermarket, restaurants and convenient stores. If we are coming back, we will book this place again.
Our stay at Aaron's place was lovely and I highly recommend it!
We stayed there with 5 people (4 adults and one baby) for one night, with two of us sleeping in the living room. They provided a cot for the baby, which fitted in the bedroom. The flat was the perfect size for our group and we enjoyed the good beds, beautiful bathroom, light and spacious living room, and grand breakfast. Buses to the centre of London leave right in front of the flat and its only a short walk to the subway, so it is a great place for those who want to make the most out of their London trip.
Fantastic flat in a great location. All info and check in was seamless. Recommend.
On a positive note, Aaron is very friendly and accommodating. The flat was brilliant and in a perfect location and is stocked with breakfast cereals and condiments free of charge. It's a great area and very safe. The person who lived upstairs was a bit noisy but it is London and we'd happily go again. Great inner-city flat.
IMPECCABLE! Aaron était disponible à notre arrivée. L'appartement était impeccable, la literie d'excellente qualité. Nous avions même de quoi nous faire un petit déjeuner et de la grande cuisine. le quartier est très bien desservi par les transports en commun et l'appartement est calme.

Hi my name is Aaron and I am listing the '1 Bedroom Flat (Sleeps 4) Angel, N1' located in London.
I was born in London have lived here my whole life. I enjoy travelling and seeing other cities and countries - my favourite are Rome and Beijing.
