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.

Aaron’s flat is spotlessly clean and very well equipped. The double bed has a good mattress and the sofa bed in the living room was large enough for our 2 teenage girls to share in comfort. The bathroom is modern and there were loads of towels. It was very warm at night and we didn’t want to sleep with the windows open, but there is a large fan which helped to move the air around and was very welcome. The free wifi, Netflix, Amazon Movies and washing machine were also a bonus. There are lots of restaurants within walking distance and plenty of local shops on the doorstep which sell the basics like bread, milk and fruit. It is a very easy walk to the tube and buses run right past the front door. Aaron also owns the shop downstairs so he is there if you need anything. We would happily stay here again.
Très bon séjour dans l'appartement d'Aaron, qui était très bien aménagé. Nous étions quatre et nous avons vraiment apprécié d'avoir deux jeux de clé !
Aaron a tout fait pour que notre séjour se passe le mieux possible, tout le nécessaire était fourni pour le petit déjeuner ainsi que toutes les informations nécessaires pour passer un bon moment à Londres !
Aaron a été un hôte très arrangeant et facilement joignable, nous recommandons !!!
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.
This is a light, bright and comfortable flat, which has a small well equipped kitchen and is very clean throughout, best suited to two people. It is attractively decorated and has a nice homely feel to it. It is idealy located close to many shops and cafe's, and is very well serviced by London buses and the London underground - 8 mins away from Angel station. It is great place to get a taste of the life in London, whilst providing easy access to the heart of London itself. Aaron is a very friendly and relaxed host who has a lot of experience and knows how to look after his quests,
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.

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.
