I slept for one night in Stephan's apartment. Stephan was really friendly and cared about my wellbeing.
The Apartment is absolutely nice. Like a room in a 5 star hotel. Clean, Nice view, nice interior design & good connection to the Airport & the city.
Well what can I say - complete and utter luxury! With Stephan being an architect, you can imagine the attention to detail and eye for design that flows throughout the apartment. It is the perfect place to enjoy the finer things in life - underfloor heating, flat screen tv, electric blinds and a sound system throughout - the speakers even play through to the bathroom! The room has its own floor with use of a desk area should you need and its own private balcony. Stephan is so welcoming that I spent most of my time in the shared areas - the living room and kitchen overlook beautiful Arundel Square with great views across London.
In the morning, Stephan and I had breakfast together and it was so enjoyable getting to know him - I could have continued chatting for hours! I would definitely recommend this apartment - a wonderful space and a great host!
It’s always nice to meet fellow hosts and experience different places in your own city and we thoroughly enjoyed our short stay at Stephan's place in Barnsbury, Islington. The arrangement was very comfortable and we will certainly want to go back.
The bedroom and en-suite bathroom are truly state-of-the-art features with under floor heating, sound system throughout, internet enabled flat screen TV and a great wi-fi connection. Just next to our bedroom we also had exclusive use of a desk/study area. All this on a separate floor from the rest of our host's facilities, offering lots of privacy. Stephan also made sure we felt welcome in the shared living/dining/kitchen area, which has stunning views over North London through large floor-to-ceiling glass partitions.
The pleasant Arundel garden square dominates the view, with lots of little scenes unfolding, like locals walking their dogs, children playing, others working out a (email hidden) need to leave the premises to get a feel of the area.
The place is within 5 minutes of the lively Upper Street. It is one of the few high streets left in London with many thriving one-off boutiques, shops and restaurants, rather than the omnipresent chain stores and eateries, which dominate elsewhere.
We would really recommend this attractive property as the perfect base for exploring the more cutting edge neighbourhoods of London, like Shoreditch, Broadway Market, Dalston etc... now all in striking distance thanks to the new East London Overland line, linked with the nearby Highbury&Islington station.
My husband and me were the first guests in this new airbnb place and it has been a marvelous experience to meet these gracious and interesting hosts and stay in their wonderful duplex penthouse. Luxurious it was : all possible comfort (floor heated beautiful bath room with shower, flat screen tv, radio, very high quality throughout) combined with a maximum of privacy: our en-suite bedroom and entrance were situated on a separate floor, allowing us even to enter the apartment after a late restaurant without disturbing the hosts. We enjoyed using our own desk/study area next to the bedroom with full access to wifi. So handy for a detailed planning of the days! Stephan spoiled us with his no nonsense approach and nice attentions (bottle of spring water in the bedroom, coffee and tea, we could use his parking space in the garage).
As the apartment is so beautifully decorated and furnished, it didn't come as a surprise to discover that Stephan is a architectural and design specialist! He answered happily all our questions on planned, recent or old buildings (even got us interested in the daunting Barbican!), and furthermore provided us with tips on what to see, current exhibitions, directions, bus lines, restaurants and what else.
We loved gazing out over London during breakfast in the dining area : a splendid sight - both peaceful with the prize-winning Arundel Square at our feet, and exciting with so many London highlights as the skyline .
As we had a busy schedule in London, we very much appreciated the strategic location of the property with lots of good public transport. As a fervent London bus fan I could catch buses within a 5 minute walk and reach all touristic parts of London with ease ( bus rides in London are easy, well organised and extremely good value touristic experiences!).
We highly recommend this place!
Simon was the best guest possible. Welcome back anytime.
