Хорошее место недалеко от центра Лондона. До King's Cross можно добраться за 10 минут на автобусе. Рядом, в трех минутах ходьбы находится станция метро Caledonian Road. Поблизости есть супермаркеты, кафе, парк, детские площадки. Вечером видели лису, перебегающую дорогу, кормили ручных белок. Район тихий, свежий воздух. Замечательное сочетание цена / качество.

For a short visit to London, Clive's Islington apartment is good value for money, not directly on the underground, but regular busses almost on the doorstep take you to Kings Cross in a few minutes.
Better suited for four guests than five since the airbed is not the ideal solution, but otherwise warm, comfortable and well equiped overall. Clive was easily contactable and was very reactive in sorting out a problem with his sofa bed.
Listing was accurate - appt. is small conveniently located and easily accessed via bus / overground / tube.
Neighborhood feels safe and quiet with very short distance to supermarket and other services. The host waited for us in the apartment. The appt. was clean but the furniture is not in good general condition. The opening sofa was broken, the blow-up mattress was punctured, and the toilette seat removed from hinges. The central heating worked after a phone to the host and some guidance on how to operate it, hot water was great!
All in all a good experience with some issues but since this was a weekend and we dealt with maintenance issues we had a great time!
Great place. Very nice and clean. A kinda long walk to the underground (about 12-15 minutes) but overall a good stay.
Clive's place is in a good location and has all amenities. It was clean and I was met by Danielle who was very nice. The mattress could use an upgrade but otherwise I was comfortable.
