Dès notre arrivée à Londres et précisément au 103 Essex street à Islington, nous avons reconnu Aaron et son sourire fidèle à la photo publiée avec l'annonce. Fiona nous a conduit à l'appartement afin d'en faire l'état des lieux très aimablement et en ayant compris que nous ne parlions pas l'anglais très facilement. Le logement correspondait à la description faite et répondait à nos attentes pour notre court séjour. Le quartier est très passant, très vivant, commerçant, notamment vers Upper street que nous avons traversé tous les jours pour nous rendre dans le centre de Londres. Nous aurions aimé que notre séjour dure plus longtemps pour découvrir davantage cette grande ville (5 jours voyage A/R compris). Et c'est avec regret que nous l'avons quittée. A refaire. Je conclue en disant que l'appartement proposé par Aaron est bien, simple et pratique.
Excellent séjour dans le logement d'Aaron. Les photos sont très représentatives, le logement est propre et bien équipé, et un grand soin est apporté pour l'accueil des hôtes (fruits, céréales, lait, café, thé, ...). Nous étions arrivés plus tôt que l'heure du check-in et avons pu laisser nos bagages dans sa boutique située juste en bas. Bus, métro, restaurants et commerces sont à proximité et la gare est à environ 10min en bus.
Aaron was very friendly and check in was so easy. As Aaron owns the pet shop below, we just popped in there and he gave us the keys.
The place is very small but fine for a base. Its a great location; nice shops within walking distance and great location for walking up to Oxford Street.
The flat was very comfortable we had everything that we need , the beds and the washrooms were really comfortable too and Aaron was really nice he helped us to move around London .
The flat is in a really good location, you have a supermarket around there and the underground is by 5 minutes walking and also there is a few restaurants that you can try if you want to . Aaron gave us a map with sightseeing and the name the underground station, that helped for moving around London. We are satisfied with the flat and really enjoy London.
El piso es muy cómodo y tiene todo lo que necesitas, Aaron hace posible que tu estancia en Londres sea fácil, te da un mapa con todas las indicaciones, el barrio es muy agradable, esta lleno de restaurantes y tiene una callecita con mercado callejero muy bonito.
Excellent location! Well-equipped flat, friendly host. Everything you need for a stay in London.
Everything was perfect, great and clean apartment close to shops and transportation. The bus is right across the street and you can reach central London and st Pancras international. Aaron wasn't there to meet us but it wasn't an issue because his friend Fiona was there to welcome and explain us everything we needed to know about the apartment and the area !
We were just a bit disappointed because not everything mentioned for the breakfast was included.
Overall we enjoyed our stay in the apartment, we recommend it !!

About the Host, Aaron
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.
