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!
Staying at Simona's studio was an unbelievable experience. The place was clean, warm, and charming. It gave me a real sense of home away from home which allowed me to enjoy my stay in London even longer.
Simona was a very generous and caring host. She was responsive to any request or inquiry I had before I chose to reserve the listing. Once I arrived, she made sure I knew the neighborhood, and had an understanding of how to get around. I would definitely recommend this place to any traveler to London. Thank you Simona. I will definitely be staying at your place again next time I am in town.
Schönes ruhiges Studio in der Nähe von Tube und Bussen. Simona hat uns sehr sympathisch empfangen und wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Würde das Studio jederzeit empfehlen!
We had a great stay at her place, it was exactly as it was described. The apartment is a five to ten minute walk to the Highbury and Islington station, which it made it very easy to get around London. There is also a bus line that will take you to the Borough Market with no changes. We had one small hiccup which Simona did take care off. I would recommend this place to anyone looking to stay in London.
Simona was great! Key handoff was easy, description of the apartment was perfect. I was only there for one night as I passed through London, but it was quiet, clean and nice...and exactly what I needed! Perfect as an efficient place to live out of while enjoying London. Incredibly short walk to the Highbury/Islington tube stop.
