  • If you are a Arsenal fan, you must feel great to stay at the old stadium "Highbury". The room was clean and the house owner was very nice. I will stay there again when I am in London next time.

  • Lovely large room with huge bathroom! Very clean, light and airy. Bed is enormous and sooooo comfortable! The room overlooks the courtyard and is very quiet; we heard no traffic noise at all. Maria and Francisco are delightful hosts, very helpful and friendly. If you're driving and arrive after 2.00 on a Friday you can, if you're lucky enough, park right outside the apartment all weekend for free! Not bad for London!!
    Looking forward to our next visit next year!
    Thank you Maria & Francisco.

  • Maria and her family were incredibly warm and friendly and made us feel very welcome. Communication in advance of our arrival and throughout our stay was amazing--they even offered to help us procure tickets for an Arsenal FC match. Access from Arsenal Station was convenient, allowing us to make good use of our Oyster cards. Upon arrival, we found lots of thoughtful touches throughout the room, including guides to help us plan our assault on the city.

    The room was clean and bright, and after a night in the comfortable bed and a spa-like shower, we had recovered from much of our jet lag. We would absolutely stay with Maria again!

  • It was great to end up staying with Maria and Francisco again. When they came up in my search I booked with them immediately!

    The place is spacious, clean, calm and a very interesting location. They really are great hosts and seem to have struck the balance between welcoming you and not intruding on your privacy.

    Thanks and see you again maybe!

  • Me and my girlfriend stayed for a couple of days at Maria's place in one of our first experiences in airbnb. We would not have chosen best place for tourism in London. The place is located in a beautiful neighborhood very close to a tube station. The room is large, warm, clean, with a very modern and comfortable bathroom, and nicely decorated, as well as the rest of the apartment. Most important, Maria and her husband are such a great hosts, very collaborative and always up to help. We truly felt as home in Maria's. Very much recomended.

  • Maria´s apartment is very nice, comfortable, clean, spacious. I really liked that there is a big private bathroom in the bedroom which gives a lot of privacy and is better than a standard hotel room. It is not very central but close to a very nice area called Angels full of restaurants and bars and not touristy. Maria and her family are really nice and welcoming. I recommend Maria´s place for a pleasant stay in London
