The Space

Stylish central London apartment in Islington, zone 1, N1. Very central with great transport links on your doorstep. Within close and easy reach to all of London's key attractions, 12 minute bus ride to both Oxford circus and Camden and only 5 min from Kings Cross.

Decorated to a high standard, the apartment is positioned over one floor of a converted Victorian house and has many Victorian features such as sash windows, cast iron radiators, original marble fire fireplace and window shutters. The location is superb being just a ten minute walk from the vibrant and trendy Upper Street. The bedroom overlooks a well kept garden and is perfectly silent considering the apartments location. Very cool in the summer with back to front natural ventilation, and comfortably warm in the wintertime.

Although being able to enjoy the comfort and relaxation of a home, the buzz of vibrant Upper Street, Angel, Kings Cross and Caledonian Road are only moments away. The apartment is set less than 15 minutes from the bustling West End, with an eclectic mix of bars, cafes, cinemas, theatres, clubs, supermarkets, and a vast array of designer shops. Homely, clean, spacious, modern and newly furnished your stay here will be one of luxury with the benefit of being in one of London's most desirable boroughs. This apartment is a typical London home and staying here will give you the experience of living like a traditional Londoner, in the heart of the capital.

Oak flooring with great rugs for a comfortable stay, 32 inch digital plasma TV, cable TV service (freeview), DVD player, ipod or iphone speakers and docking station, fully furnished with extraordinary furniture, automatic central heating, fully fitted contemporary kitchen with fridge & freezer, washing machine, gas hob and oven, microwave, large corner L-shaped sofa in living room for additional guests (sofa bed sleeps 2 very comfortably). There is a double bed in the bedroom (sleeps 2 others), and extra bedding can be offered for people wanting to sleep separately. Bathroom with bath and shower, and storage throughout. Secure entry with intercom, renovated entrance area and stairways to building. Wireless broadband internet, (email hidden) mobile phone are in the apartment ready for you to use.

Transport is outside the doorstep. Caledonian Road Overground Station (Zone 1) is a 5-minute walk from the apartment and all frequent bus services are only 30 seconds away. Highbury and Islington National Rail and Underground (Victoria Line) Station is a ten-minute walk from the apartment through the tree-lined picturesque Islington neighbourhood of (website hidden). Pancras Eurostar terminal to Paris and Brussels is less than a 15-minute walk from the apartment and buses connect frequently from close by. Many buses to the West End and other parts of London can be found just as close.

The centre is only a few underground stops away, you could even walk there.

This flat is managed by a professional landlord and his professional support team providing extraordinary preventative maintenance and outstanding customer care, attentive and always available, enhancing your holiday or stay. All maintenance is undertaken in record time with little disruption to the enjoyment of the property. The locality of the apartment is ideal as it is positioned in the heart of N1 (North 1) making it easily accessible to most of the main attractions of London whilst being set in one of London’s most picturesque boroughs. Islington is famous for its nightlife and theaters, it offers an impressive choice to rival the West End. The world famous Sadlers Well Dance Theatre can be reached on foot. Almeida, Union Chapel, O2 academy and live music at local pubs and bars, are just a sample of the incredible range on offer. Well known attractions in the area include the Dickens Museum, the London Canal Museum, Camden Passage antiques market, Chapel Market fruit & veg, Columbia Road flower market, Brick Lane, Broadway Market, Spitafields and Pettycoat Lane. The Emirates football stadium is within walking distance, or a quick bus ride away. The landlord can speak English, Portuguese and Spanish with you.

  • Appartement petit mais plutôt joli (4 couchages) et bien équipé, si ce n'est la salle de bain, peu pratique...
    Accueil correct.
    Départ, par contre, à la limite de l'impolitesse : certes, nous n'étions pas tout à fait prêts à 10h le matin, mais notre fille a du (à 10h15...), finir de remplir son sac sur le trottoir tant Anna (ou Anita ?) était peu aimable et nous reprocher notre retard !
    Notre prochain séjour à Londres se fera avec un autre contact...

    Bonjour Muriel, je suis désolé d'apprendre que vous avez été déçu avec le départ j'ai parlé avec Anna que vous avez rencontré lors de votre départ et unfortuantely nous avons eu quelqu'un qui arrive dirrectly après votre départ et c'est pourquoi nous avons dû s'en tenir à l'heure de départ convenue de 10h. En signe de bonne volonté si vous avez décidé de venir et de rester avec nous encore dans l'avenir je serais plus qu'heureux de vous offrir une remise de client de retour (comme un signe de bonne volonté). J'espère que cela ne porte pas atteinte à votre appréciation globale de l'appartement. Merci pour rester chez moi et j'espère avoir de vos nouvelles à l'avenir. Tout le meilleur!

  • It was very nice to stay at the flat. It is in a beautiful neighbourhood, and incredibly close to shops and restaurants on Caledonian Road. Only problem was that the blow up bed deflated throughout the night. Must be a sneaky little hole somewhere!

  • The whole experience was fabulous. The flat was neat and cozy; plus, it was close to every attraction we wished to visit as tourists. As of the host, I can only say that we could not have found a kinder one. I would return for sure.

  • We had a great stay in Clive's flat. Even if the flat is pretty small and there were five of us staying, it worked really well! Clive's team are incredible helpful. The flat is located in Islington, 10mins away from Upper Street with all it's restaurants, shops and bars and the train station is on your doorstep. The flat has everything you could wish for, washing machine, dishwasher, hair dryers etc. It's also very clean and comfortable. Can not recommend it highly enough!

    Thank you!

  • This apartment has everything you need for a London getaway. The apartment itself handled the four of us very well and we were grateful for a clean place to arrive at. The bus stop is right around the corner and a grocery store right across the street at the corner. It was fun to see how much can fit into a compact place and still be comfortable.

  • The apartment is located in convenient location. Walking distance to Overground and Tube stations. There are a few restaurants and grocery stores right outside of the apartment. The apartment is small but still fit four of us very well for 4 nights.

    Clive is a friendly host. Although we did not meet in person, he gave us all the London's must-have information prior to our arrival. Cliff staff is very helpful and knowledgeable.

    We enjoyed our stay in Clive's apartment!
