Originally from Hong Kong, I have been living in London for 9 years and am currently finishing my final year at uni, studying illustration.
I also help my parents look after their property in Angel:)
Didn't get a chance to meet Florence but the check-in/check-out process was very convenient. The apt. was spacious and located near the Angel station. This would be a great place for 3 or more travelers.
Florence's flat is simple and practical for a touristic journey in London. There is all you need to get a good sleep, cook and eat a real english breakfast and jump out to have a long day in the city. If you come from Paris, being close from King's cross station is handy. You're near Islington and Camden and Travelling around is easy from Angel with tube and buses.
L appartement, tres calme et vert, se situe ds un des meilleurs quartiers de Londres, Islington, pour une vie de quartier a l Anglaise tout en étant bien situé (proche gare de St Pancras) ideal pour de courts ou moyen sejours a Londres. Florence est tres chaleureuse et disponible pour toutes questions. Super sejour Londonien
Was well located and easy to get to. Very close proximity to the main area of Angel and a short walk to the station. My only complaint was that there was no Wifi in the apartment, which was one of my main criteria.
This flat is situated in a Angel district, on friday a lot of youngs meet themselves for enjoyment.
The flat is cool, the bedroom quiet, the bed good.
Florence was a very nice host. She had arranged a welcome package with subway maps and maps of the local area with points of interest. The room was clean, adequately comfortable and very quiet, the rest of the house was pretty much no frills, but right in front is a nice little garden + bench.
The house was very conveniently located, a 5min walk from angel subway stop and with a nice daily market (and a bunch of supermarkets) right around the corner. In the limited time I spent exploring the local neighbourhood I found some nice bars, antique shops and a really nice movietheatre: the screen on the green.
Florence was a life saver helping find last minute accommodations. She was really nice and picked me up at the tube station to walk with me to the flat. She was very prepared with maps and other useful information for me about the neighborhood. The location was great, within easy walking distance to Angel and close to Kings Cross area with many shops, food, and pubs.
The flat and the room were simple but clean, quiet, and of good size. I had one of the two bedrooms, and shared a kitchen, but no living room. The garden view was nice, though I didn't use it. The bathroom was basic, with an adequate but inconveniently low-hung hand-held shower, in a tub (but not one you would probably use as such). I was not staying with Florance but with a long term lodger. He was quiet and helpful, the few times I saw him, but we didn't talk much. I was able to the lock the room during the day, so I felt that my luggage was safe when I wasn't there. Overall my stay was comfortable. Perfect if you just need a place to crash at the end of a long day of sightseeing.
Florence’s apartment in Angel was very convenient and comfortable. It is only minutes’ walk away from Angel tube station (in central London) and is ideal for travelers who only have a few days in London and want to minimize time wasted on transport. There is a street market just outside the house where one can pick up fresh, locally produced fruits, vegetables, and even fish and meat if one wishes to cook. Alternatively, there is also a wide array of eateries in the area, ranging from fast food outlets such as Subway and MacDonald’s to Italian/ Indian/ Turkish restaurants. As for the room, the bed was very big, and so was the closet. The room window overlooks a communal garden, and if you are lucky enough, you might see squirrels scuttling around. All in all, I really enjoyed my stay at Florence’s house and I am sure you will too.
Florence was a sweet and lovely guest whom I hosted briefly- easy to contact, and very clear and communicative. A pleasure!
Wonderful guest, thanks for chosing my place
Florence is my close friend from university. We also travelled together to Morocco and she was a great travel friend through out. She coordinated things during Morocco trip and from that I know that she is prompt and is efficient with emails and organization. She is cheerful, very sweet, loves eating and cooking. She is so easy going, I'm sure everyone will enjoy having her as a guest or be her guest.
