THE LOCAL AREA
In the local area you will find everything you need for a great stay; there is a large supermarket, cafes, restaurants, bars and clubs, all within a 4 minute walk. The apartment is just 4 minutes from Dalston, which has great night life, quirky vintage shops, and boutique restaurants and bars, and is a great place for a night out!
Canonbury, Dalston Kingsland and Dalston Junction overground stations are all approximately a 5 minute walk from the apartment and provide easy access to Camden, Stratford and Shoreditch. For those who don't know London as well it is very easy to connect with the underground network; from Canonbury it is 1 stop to Highbury and Islington Station where you have access to the Victoria Line. The overground and underground use the same tickets and are very easy transfer between them.
Ruth's place was just perfect for us. There was me and my husband and two friends, so having the whole flat and two bedrooms was great. We made a yumming breakfast in the kitchen and had plenty of space to relax.
It was a few minutes walk to the overground station and we were in town in 10 to 20 minutes depending on where we wanted to visit.
A shop directly across the road was perfect too for milk and fruit etc in the morning.
Ruth was lovely and very helpful. We would stay again and recommend it to our friends.
Ruth's flat was great! It was very clean, homey and keenly furnished with a charmingly eclectic assortment of furniture, decorations and books. It was quite spacious for the four of us, and her kitchen had everything we needed to prepare a meal. Had it not been raining so torrentially, I'm sure we would have also loved the apartment's beautiful patio that overlooks the block.
It is indeed situated quite near the center of hip Dalston- a ten minute walk from the jazz bars, clubs, cafes and killer Caribbean take away.
Ruth herself is really easy to communicate with. She is responsive, very friendly and accommodating. She provided us with suggestions for places to visit in her neighborhood, and even though she was out of town, it was very easy to contact her. She was so easygoing and hospitable with us. I'd heartily recommend the flat.
