Simons was great. Quick response on a last minute request. Convenient location, walking distance to the wonderful shops and restaurants of Islington. Nice, quiet building.
Simona is a very nice host. The flat is pretty, tidy and clean and in a perfect location. Central, very well connected with the public transports and jet in a quiet environment. Highly recommended
Simona was very responsive to our frequent questions during our week in London. The place was clean and well located for our needs. It was small (by Texas standards), but quite comfortable.
on the up side-the apartment was clean, good location, Simona seemed to be responsive & a nice person.
on th down side- the apartment was very small and clattered, work (due to renovations in the building-which was a surprise upon arrival/ getting the keys), out doors-entrance was also hence unpleasant.
Great place and convenient location to get into Central London. Simona is a great host, would stay again.
Simona was a great host! She checked in to make sure everything was working, and she was very friendly and easy to communicate with throughout my stay. Even though my flight got in a bit earlier than scheduled, she was flexible about the key handoff.
The flat looks just like the pictures. It’s cozy, but for one person, it was more than enough room. Simona kindly provided me with everything I needed that I couldn’t fit in my backpack. The hairdryer, straightener, and curling iron were definitely a bonus! The furnishing is lovely, and I especially loved the cute quote about travel on the chalkboard near the kitchen! :)
I was there for just short of a week, and it was a perfect home base to explore. The flat is in a quiet part of a very nice, fun residential area. The location of the flat is really quite nice- close to the Highbury & Islington tube station. From there, the Victoria line either connects or gets you close to all of the tourist-y things you probably want to see in London, while the Overground is perfect when you want to explore the funkier side of London.
I’d definitely recommend Simona’s flat if you want to stay in this area!
