Kings Cross is the newly rejuvenated part of London and has many new galleries, cafes, top restaurants, shops and canal walks!
we spent there 5 nights, the location was great, the flat was clean, nice orgenized and very cozy, we got everything that we needed from the big to the small bits, thank you Jacob .
Perfect location to stay in London for business or tourism. The flat is comfortable and offers anything you need to feel at home. Jacob is a great host. I would definitely recommend his flat.
We spent 7 days and the apartment was very good. Great location and every thing we needed.
Jacob's place was wonderful! Clean, comfortable, and in a good location. Jacob was there to great us (as was a bottle of wine and a box of chocolate) and he fully explained everything to us. He provided us with Oyster passes for the a Tube (a major help!) and a map of the city. He had a great suggestion for how we should spend our first night in London. The location is great: near many places to eat and King's Cross/St. Pancras. It's an ideal location if your next stop is Paris and you're taking the Chunnel. However, if you plan on going out to dinner and need to come back and change, it can cut your day short, since you need the time to go back, change, and go back out again. This is a mere geographical/logistic concern. At King's Cross you can easily catch the Tube, the train, or a taxi. I highly recommend it!
Great place to stay, very well equipped and just as described in the listing. Only a short walk from Kings Cross or Angel which is perfect for getting around. Jacob made me feel very welcome on arrival and left me with a bottle of wine and biscuits to settle in. As I was on my own for this trip I was really glad to feel very secure in the flat even though it is on the ground floor. The garden is really nice to have and is well enclosed.
I lived in London for many years so I know the area well and I was using the flat while over for business. My only (very small) niggle was that there was no TV which would not have been an issue if I was there for holiday but would have been nice to have when I was working in the evenings. This is just a really small point though and as the flat has very fast wifi if you have a computer or tablet with you then its not a big deal.
Would recommend and will gladly stay here again.
I had a wonderful stay at this apartment. I was there for an entire month, working at the nearby British Library, and it was just as the photos depicted it. (Actually, it was even nicer, as the bathroom has been recently remodeled!)
The apartment has everything you need: a very comfortable bed; a hot shower with a nice deep tub for long baths; a kitchen with a washing machine and a washer and dryer; and a secluded little garden where you can eat breakfast and relax with the sunlight on your face. And despite its very central (and convenient) location right by St. Pancras Station, it's in a quiet area off the main roads. All in all, I highly recommend staying here!
Visiting London for the 1st time we were happy that Jacob turned out to be a very hospitable and a very polite host. The apartment was right as it was described. The location of the apartment is also extremely convenient for visitors – Zone 1, all sorts of transport, within easy reach of most famous sights. In other words, we’ve enjoyed staying at Jacob’s apartment greatly!
