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!
Overall very good apartment and convenient location. Only drawback was that we reached out to the host during our stay but didn't hear back.
Hi Gregor, I'm glad you liked my apartment! My apologies, however I didn't hear anything from you during your stay? I hope it didn't stop you enjoying your time here too much! :-s
Let me know if you come back to London again, I'd be pleased to be your host once more! Thanks and all the best! Clive
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!
Clive's apartment in Islington is in a great location for exploring the "must see" sites if London. It is only a few minutes' walk from the train station, and one stop on the underground fro Kings Cross and the heart of London. The apartment is trendy and stylish with updated amenities throughout. Perfect for a couple, a few friends traveling together or a young family. Clive's associates met us at the flat upon arrival and made sure we had everything we needed. The fresh flowers were a nice touch. Great host, cute little apartment, terrific location. Highly recommended.
