I booked the apartment for my family who was coming to London for my wedding. The apartment is great, in a really nice, calm neighbourhood. It's fully furnished and spacious with 2 bathrooms (one even has a spa tub). Mo and Tiguida were wonderful from start to finish and my family had a wonderful time in London. The flat is clean and they even offered us the first breakfast! The flat is well located (10min to Tube and shops). I would definitively rent it again.
The flat had everything in it that we (website hidden) and family were incredibly helpful and really lovely people. We had a problem getting the internet working and they fixed it for us in under half an hour! I would definitely recommend this flat for any groups wanting to visit London!
The Cannonbury Park North apartment is situated in a quiet cul-de-sac in a leafy part of Islington (which is a lovely part of london) and was a perfect place to retire to after the hustle and bustle of london. the apartment is a 5-10min walk (if you can make it past the alwyne castle pub - great food & beer garden) away from the highbury & islington tube station & the victoria tube line which means that london is very easily accessible.
the apartment itself was immaculately presented and very well furnished. it comfortably accommodated our party of 7 (2 couples and 3 singles) and was very well quipped to do so with loads of spare duvets/pillows etc.
it would be impossible to leave a review of the Cannonbury Park North Apartment without mentioning (and thanking!) Mo who was absolutely superb throughout the entire process from start to finish - whether answering one of the many, varied email enquiries or rearranging her schedule @ the last minute due to a last minute change in our plans (& rounding up lost members of our party!).
so to sum it all up, its a great apartment in a lovely area and Mo was a delight to deal with. i would have absolutely no hesitation recommending this apartment (or any other offered by Mo) and would definitely book again with Mo next time i need somewhere to stay in london =)
Mo and her brother were very bubbly, sweet and informative. Charming and warm people who truly care about their guests.. Mo was responsive to text messages and flexible with arrangements.
The pictures of the apartment are exactly how it looks on the inside. Modern, clean and comfortable.
The entrance and stairway up to the apartment - not so clean and welcoming as neighbors have various household items: Bikes, trash bins, cardboard boxes and such in the hall way. It for me and my group took a perfect 10 experience to a 7.
The neighborhood was beautiful, especially if you take the Cannonbury path from the apartment to and from the Tube. The Tube is a slow paced 15 minute walk with luggage in tow from the apartment.. The quaint pubs, shops and houses that dot the walk create a relaxing and charming space.
Many thanks for the feedback. In London, the culture has changed to adopt compulsory recycling schemes, particularly in Central London. This means we all have to have trash cans specifically to enable this outside of our apartments. The fanstastic thing about this is London is making a concerted effort to help our planet (recycling is green :-) ) and is also helping our economy (it costs our community just £15 per tonne to recycle vs £80 per tonne for rubbish) so it is helping us to improve London to make it more fun for tourists. Perhaps the US can look to learn from us and save themselves some money and be more green too. With respect to the Bicycles, again, culturally more
of us cycle in London and need somewhere safe to keep our bikes so we can get from A to B. It is normal here to store them inside of apartment complexes, but we appreciate not everyone in the world needs to do this. We hope you will embrace this part of London culture and understand why it is this way here. Having you visit us and learn about these cultural differences can be positive for all that do so :-) Thanks, Mo
First I would like to say: Thanks Mo.
As you can see in the pictures this apartment is very nice, with 3 large bedrooms and a separate kitchen completed of all appliances that you could need.
It is situated in a very quite area without traffic and overground is very near about 3/5 minute by walk or underground about 5/10 munute by walk.
If I'll come in london again, I want stay in this apartment!
Prima di tutto voglio dire: Grazie Mo.
Come si puo vedere dalle foto questo appartamento è molto bello. Ha 3 grandi camere da letto e una cucina separta dalla sala completa di tutti gli elettromestici di cui potreste avere bisogno.
L'appartamento è situato in una zona tranquilla, la strada è senza uscita, pertanto il traffico è pressoche inesistente.
La metropolitana a piedi è istante solo 5/10 minuti
La mertropolotana sopra terra 3/5 minuti
Se tornerò a Londra vorrei soggiornare nuovamente in questo appartamento.
