Fantastic place, well recommended if you are new to the area or want to be located near Arsenal's football ground; in a very clean, and a secure location near a Zone 2 Tube station. Wonderful hosts and very warm and engaging people.
From our arrival we were made to feel very welcome in Alex & Leah's home. They had been thoughtful enough to leave us chocolates on the bed as it was our honeymoon!
The apartment was less than 5 minutes from Holloway Road tube station and from the buses into Central London. If you're an Arsenal fan you couldn't choose a more perfect place to stay as the Emirates can be seen as you walk for the tube/bus!
The apartment itself is very spacious, warm, modern but with a comfortable 'homely' feel to it. The room we had for our stay was tastefully decorated, a really good size with a double bed, plenty of drawers and hanging space for our belongings and a computer desk with digital TV. We had exclusive use of the main bathroom during our stay which was also very spacious, with a powerful 'over bath' shower and lovely fluffy towels. Alex and Leah had printed a sheet with useful information for our stay and recommended places of interest to visit, which came in handy. We were given the password for the WiFi to use and also our own key to come and go as we pleased.
We stayed for 3 nights at the apartment (Thursday to Sunday). Alex and Leah both work so had left the apartment by the time we woke for breakfast. Breakfast was laid out for us on the bar in the kitchen and our hosts had even baked fresh bread for us which went down a treat with a variety of jams, cereals, fruit juices and coffee.
On the Saturday we had the opportunity to chat further with Alex and to be honest, it was more like chatting with a friend than a 'host'. Both Alex and Leah are very approachable, friendly and genuinely lovely people to be around. (They are going to make fantastic first time parents in a few weeks too!)
There are plenty of places to eat/drink near the apartment with takeaways, pubs (The Metro & The George), 24hr licensed stores, a Tesco Express and small Sainsburys all within 200 yards of the apartment. If you turn right onto Holloway Rd at the Metro pub, and cross over there is a takeaway where you can buy a 10" pizza and a can of pop for £3.00!
Central London is just 15mins from Holloway by tube (Piccadilly line) and approx 30-40mins by bus depending on route. The #43 (right onto Holloway Rd) goes to London Bridge where theres Borough Market (not to be missed), filled with a 'world' of flavours. If you venture left onto Holloway you will come to the Nags Head shopping centre and you can get plenty of buses from Camden Rd heading into the centre including #29 to Trafalgar Sq.
All in all, our first airbnb experience was EXCELLENT and we couldn't have wished for better hosts than Alex and Leah. We would definitely visit again and highly recommend them to our family & friends. Thank you!
We had a great stay with Alex and Leah, the room is very nice and comfortable, and they were very accommodating for what was a last minute trip. We would definitely recommend their apartment as a place to stay in London.
Todo ha sido perfecto, la casa es ideal, cómoda, confortable, limpia y muy acogedora, pero lo mejor sin duda son los anfitriones, Leah y Alex son realmente encantadores, con su amabilidad hacen que te sientas como en tu propia casa. Totalmente recomendable, cuando vuelva a Londres, intentaré ir de nuevo a su casa
Alex and Leah were fabulous hosts! Such a privilege to enjoy the hospitality of the upcoming family. Lovely breakfast in the morning (with selfmade bread e.g.), everyting tidy and always helpful. So, we would highly recommend them! Thanks, and all the best for your little family! Lisa and André
The hosts were very friendly and helpful with answering my questions about getting around. The accommodations were spacious and very clean. Couldn't have asked for a more pleasant experience!
We were staying at Alex and Leah's house for 2 nights and we realy recommend you to choose them!! The place was clean, worm and felt for us like home ...and it is close to the Tube station and from their you can get very fast to the city center. THANK YOU Alex and Leah
ממליצים בחום לכל מי שרוצה לגור בדירה חדשה, נעימה, נקייה, קרובה למרכז
העיר, והזוג שאירח אותנו היו מקסימים !!!! מומלץ ושווה יותר ממלון
My sister and I had a great stay at Alex's place.
It's 2-3 minutes from the closest tube station, so you can be at Piccadilly in 15 minutes or so, and King's Cross is only two tube stations away. The neighborhood is nice, and you can explore another (also charming) side of London.
The room itself is very nice and clean, so is the bathroom, that we had all for ourselves.
Alex and Leah, although we didn't have much time to spend together with us sightseeing and them working, were very helpful and easy going hosts.
It's five stars from us. :)
Alex and Leah were both awesome hosts. The room was neat and cozy and we have access to a dedicated guest bathroom. Breakfasts were good with choice of drinks and cereals. Alex even went out of his way to help us to get Arsenal match tickets. The location is great, 2 stops from King's Cross with good connections to Oxford and other parts of London. Both my wife and I enjoyed our stay with Alex and Leah.
Great location, only a short walk to the Holloway Road station. There is a Tesco opposite for grabbing some
necessities. Alex is a wonderful host, made one feel comfortable and is easy to talk to. Guest are free to relax at the living hall. The room is wonderfully nice and newly renovated with bath room just beside it. Its a dedicated bath room for guest only.
The breakfast is nice too, and of course an equally wonderful kitchen
In short its a BnB that you will love to stay for your vacation, its like a home away from home!
Highly recommended !
Alex and Leah were fantastic guests. They were communicative and left the flat in a fantastic condition. I would be very happy to have them again.
