We stayed at the apartment for 3 nights and loved it. Much more personal and spacious than a hotel room and it has a very quirky feel to it. We drove in and were going to use a small P&D carpark adjacent to the building but Nadia kindly advised that the next street over has free residential parking - the street was quiet and the car was fine there for 3 nights. We walked from the apartment down the High Street to Seven Sisters station (Victoria Line), it was only a 5 minute walk and the street seemed to be busy at all times of day, even when walking back late at night (past midnight) there were plenty of shops, food outlets and pedestrians, so we always felt safe. Overall, we loved this apartment and would definitely recommend & use again ourselves.
여기서 4일동안 머물렀는데 마치 우리집처럼 편안했습니다. 중심에서 약간 떨어져있는듯 하지만 교통편이 편해서 여행하는데 전혀 불편하지도 않았고 근처에 슈퍼나 과일가게도 많아 장봐서 집에서 간단한 요리를 해먹기도 좋았습니다. 런던에 다시 온다면 이 집에서 머물 예정입니다!!^^
Nadia's apartment was wonderful. Fantastic value for money, both for how beautiful the space was and for how easy it was to get into the center of London. It had everything we needed and more for our five night stay there. We couldn't have felt more at home; we would highly recommend.
Nadia was very welcoming and accommodating when we arrived. The listing was very accurate and the flat was as shown on the profile. Her recommendations for food in the area were excellent. The area was very nice, with a tube station only a few minutes away meant that getting into the city was vey easy.
Our stay in Nadia's apartment was a lovely experience. We didn't get the opportunity to meet her in person but there were easy instructions to be found in a manual left in the apartment. The place was clean and bright and we loved that there was a more personal interior than most other places. The plants by the windows were a nice addition. The only thing that caused a little trouble, which was not the hostesses fault whatsoever, was getting from Stansted airport to the apartment. We landed really late and found out there were no trains running that late. The last one was at 12:30AM. So make sure to look that up before you arrive! Otherwise a lovely experience!
The flat is exactly as described and very easy to get to via the tube - Seven Sisters station is a 7 minute walk away :)
There is everything you need for a comfortable stay and I had a great time. Thanks so much, Nadia!
My husband and I have stayed in the studio apartment for 2 weeks. The apartment looks exactly as the pictures shown. It contains all what we need. Though the wall is not very good in sound proofing, we didn't encounter any noise issue. It has a Tesco superstore around and the area is very communal to the city centre. Nadia was easy to reach and always respond to my enquiries promptly. Overall, our stay is an enjoyable one.
Though some commented that the area is rough, we feel safe even at night (we back at 11pm once). Indeed we found the neighbours quite friendly. There are lots of local shops selling low-price stuff as well.

About the Host, Nadia
Im a traditional kind of girl with a crinkle cut edge, deep and then sometimes light and superficial, but never without intent...
I live with my partner and my darling dog Cassius in South Tottenham.
We are a household of therapists - my partner a creative psychotherapist and I, a family systemic constellations therapist and practitioner and Cassius just keeps us on our toes! ; )
My airbnb apartment is my therapy practice space when I dont have guests staying.
