I stayed for three nights in this flat and I absolutely loved it. The location was very good, not too noisy in the nice neighborhood of Islington. It is very easy to reach the center of London by bus or cab. Mark offered us some great advice for eating and getting around when we arrived so we had no trouble navigating the area. The flat is gorgeous and has everything. We enjoyed the movie collection as well. This was a wonderful stay, absolutely no complaints. I highly recommend these kind hosts!
Great place in a perfect location! Great hosts, space, location and overall experience.
It was a pleasure staying at Andrea's and Mark's delightful apartment, it was perfect in every respect. Quiet, comfortable, cosy bed with cotton sheets and down pillows, hot steaming shower. Excellent! And the location is perfect, very handy to Central London with a short trip upon the 73 bus from almost outside the front door. Highly recommended.
This is a stunning place to stay, in a fantastic location with great transport links. Perfect for a solo or a couple. The flat and Newington Green are an ideal place to explore London from. Mark and Andrea were very accommodating and i felt incredibly welcome here and would absolutely return. Pics don't do this place justice.
Location is wonderful very close to a direct bus to the centre of London.We arrived very late but our host was at the flat to make us welcome and he also helped with our luggage although I was really too exhausted to take much in.the wifi was down no fault of the owners but which was a bit of a shock to us as we had had our house flooded the day before we left and had lots to arrange.Having said that the bedroom,very large and modern bathroom,and kitchenette with efficient washing machine were as advertised and very clean. The flat is really rather like a hotel room with very modern double size bathroom and little kitchen attached.Nice flowers and breakfast cereal etc provided.good TV and the wifi came back on as promised by the host.
I booked the flat for my dad and sister for 3 days while they were visiting me in London. They were absolutely delighted by the warm welcome from Mark who introduced them to all the details about the flat. He also explained the neighborhood and gave them precious tips for bus routes, restaurants and bars. The flat was lovely, exactly as described and shown in the pictures. Some freshly cut tulips added a nice touch to this perfectly decorated flat.
I highly recommend Andrea's and Mark's flat and would definitely book it again for family or friends. Thanks for everything.
