About this listing
We have been AirBnB users for a while, and are excited and delighted to now be hosting guests!
We offer a guest room in a modern, clean and cosy apartment in a very nice Victorian House in London which we renovated a year ago.
We are located in the historic and vibrant Islington neighbourhood of London, it is just 30 minutes to Oxford Circus in the heart of London as well as the Financial City and 20 min away from King’s cross St Pancras.
The Room is cosy, clean and lovely, with a very comfortable double bed (UK size 135cm wide) and memory foam pillows, a big wardrobe (available for guests), guides and maps of London.
Guests have their own bathroom and toilet with a bath, a shower, heated towel rail and space to put bathroom equipment.
Shared space includes a well equipped kitchen, and a very nice and cosy living and dining room.
Bed linen, towels, hairdryer & iron are provided as well as unlimited use of wireless internet with a superfast internet connection (fibre optic). A variety of tea and infusion are at your disposal, as well as coffee. You can make yourself a breakfast (We will provide bread, cereals, butter, milk, a selection of jams, apple juice and Marmite if you would like to try!), and also use our selection of spices, salt, pepper, oil and vinegar.
Adam and I live in the flat and love our neighbourhood, we will be delighted to welcome one person or a couple and give you tips and recommend good restaurants, bars, coffee shops and other activities which are all within a 5 minute walk. We are very international and open minded. You will enjoy the warm French/Italian-South African/British welcome, the peaceful and relaxed atmosphere, the reasonable price we charge per night, and a unique London experience!
PS: We give special discount for single travellers who stay for more than 4 nights!!
After booking our guest room, you will receive an e-mail with our address, phone number, and detailed instructions (incl. maps) on how to get to our flat easily.
Upon your arrival, you will get a set of keys, access to maps and literature about London and as much help as we are able to offer!
We will ask you to leave your shoes at the entrance and will provide you with lovely hotel like slippers!
We try to be as eco-friendly as possible by using water and energy wisely, recycling, buying local and organic products and re using (especially plastic bags!).
We kindly ask our guests to recycle as much as possible, to use water wisely, to only boil the amount of water they need when they use the kettle, and ideally to borrow some of the bags in the guest room if they go shopping!
Smoking is possible but in the terrace only.
The perfect guests! A very sweet and gentle couple who gave us a lot of tips for making our holiday in London easier and nicer. The house is warm and nice and it makes you feel at home. The clean bedroom has all the space you need to be comfortable. Nearby there are many buses so you can go everywhere from there, and many nice restaurants and pub or jazz bars.
Mi novia y yo nos quedamos cuatro noches donde Clem y Adam, una pareja encantadora! El cuarto es comodo con una vista muy linda de londres, el baño es limpio y con todas las comodidades que podriamos necesitar. El barrio en donde esta el apartamento es lleno de lugares increibles, pubs, bares de jazz, restaurantes y tiendas los cuales clem y adam fueron muy acertados en recomendar! una de las noches compartimos una botella de vino y fue una experiencia unica. Mas alla de la gran oportunidad que fue este cuarto en cuanto a precio y comodidad, hicimos una nueva amistad y esperamos con ansias volverlos a ver!
Clem and Adam were wonderful host. They were very friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable and clean. The room and the ensuite are exactly the same as in the pictures. The really enjoyed our stay!
Adam and Clemence are really great hosts. This flat was the best one ever we stayed through by Air bnb. They welcomed us and they are lovely people. The flat is very clean, comfortable and is a nice designed house. The bus stop and metro are near and easy to get and use. The markets are near as well. We had a wonderful time and if we go to london again, we hope to stay there again for our holiday!^^
Mon mari et moi, septuagénaires ou presque, avons passé cinq jours au mois de novembre chez Clémence et Adam, dans leur jolie maison; la chambre est claire (elle donne sur un jardin), très calme et la propreté de l'ensemble est irréprochable. Comme nous sommes adeptes de la décoration contemporaine et de la lumière, nous avons beaucoup apprécié l'appartement de nos hôtes.
Certes, le logement n'est pas situé au coeur de Londres, mais des bus (très fréquents) mènent à la gare St Pancrace en une vingtaine de minutes. En outre, des magasins d'alimentation, des pubs, et même un club de jazz renommé sont accessibles à pied en quelques minutes.
Nous n'avons malheureusement pas pu faire la connaissance de Clémence en chair et en os, mais elle nous a cocoonés par téléphone. Nous avons donc été (très gentiment) accueillis par Adam qui ne s'est jamais départi de son sourire, même le soir où il a du subir notre anglais épouvantable alors que nous essayions de refaire le monde...
C'était notre premier séjour airbnb et nous avons été enchantés.
Clem & Adam were exemplary hosts in every way! Their home was so warm and welcoming from the moment I arrived to the moment I left. We had so many lovely conversations about a multitude of topics and I enjoyed hearing about their life experiences. I very much appreciated their efforts to be environmentally conscience as well. Simple touches like setting a place for breakfast for me each morning was so thoughtful! Also, bus, tube, and train were fairly easy from this location.
Some other points worth mentioning: their home was spotlessly clean, the bed was comfortable, house was warm, loved the variety of pillow types on the bed, they were helpful with getting around London, near organic shops for groceries, and I'd recommend to others wishing to stay in a lovely home in the Newington Green area.
Клеменс и Адэм очень гостеприимные люди. Несмотря на то, что я приехала в Лондон поздно ночью, т.е. в 4 часа утра, они встретили меня очень тепло: показали уютную комнату с широкой кроватью. Я пользовалась отдельной ванной. Утром меня ждал вкусный завтрак. Мне дали ключи, объяснили , как можно добраться до центра Лондона. Я могла возвращаться домой в удобное для меня время.

About the Host, Clemence
We have always had amazing AirBnB experiences and are delighted and excited to now be AirBnB host! We met lovely people through AirBnB and are very happy to finally be able to give back the feeling of warmth and friendliness that we received.
We are a French (Italian and Spanish at heart)-South African couple and have lived and worked in different countries, mainly the USA, Spain and Belgium. We have now been living in London for over 5 years and have just bought a lovely flat in a wonderful neighborhood and can’t wait to share it with guests!
I work in academia and my husband Adam has a software company and works in the city.
Both of us love travelling and much prefer to stay at people´s houses rather than in a hotel. When in London we love cycling and try to make the most of London’s vibrant cultural and artistic life. We also enjoy cooking and discovering new restaurants (London is full of them!).
We are both very sociable, respectful and open minded.
Feel free to email us if you have any questions!
