A light, spacious and quiet double room in my two bedroom apartment. Excellent and easy transport connections to the City and all over London. Close to a great mix of shops, bars and restaurants in vibrant Angel, Islington.

Flexible check in by arrangement

The space

I hope you will enjoy this light, spacious and comfortable place to stay in central London. I am happy to welcome guests for long or short stays. The flat is professionally cleaned once a week. Recently [Summer 2017], new wooden floors have been laid throughout, including the guest bedroom, and a new kitchen has been installed, so the airbnb pictures are a little out of date, but you will be pleasantly surprised when you arrive. New pictures soon.

YOUR BEDROOM is simple and clean. It is a large double [4.15x3.25m] with a double bed, plenty of space, plenty of storage, a large, south-facing window and rooftop views. The room is at the back of the building and the windows are double-glazed, so very quiet. I provide fresh cotton linen and towels.

Please note I have recently replaced some furniture, [since Airbnb took the photographs], so there is a new hanging unit replacing the wardrobe, new lighting and new mirrors.

THE BATHROOM is lovely, clean and new with a huge shower, two washbasins, tiled floor and walls.

THE LIVING ROOM is large and bright, with wooden flooring. A friend described it to me as comfortable, quirky and welcoming, a nice space in which to relax. Very pleasant to lean back and watch the clouds go by through the skylight to the roof.

THE KITCHEN is well equipped. I think you will find everything you might need.

THE APARTMENT is on the top floor of a listed building within a Conservation Area. You will be close to the many smart, trendy and eclectic shops, markets, bars, restaurants, independent cinema and theatre that have made Islington a smart and popular London Borough.

Guest access

There is 24/7 wifi with good connection throughout the apartment.

The bedroom has space for hanging your clothes, drawers, shelves, mirrors, bedside light. An iron, a hairdryer, an umbrella are there if you need them.

The shared bathroom is fresh and clean, newly fitted, with an enormous walk-in shower and separate washbasins and storage.

In the kitchen please observe the disposal of rubbish in the small bin and recycling items in the large one. Both are collected daily from the street just outside the apartment.

There is pay and display parking right outside the building.

Ella is a lovely host, and I had a wonderful time. She is warm and welcoming, and the apartment is charming and comfortable. The location was perfect, and I would highly recommend this place to anyone.

Ella's place is really clean and tidy and in a great location. Quite spacious too which surprised me a little! Ella was great and very personable and was always up for a chat even though I was basically in and out the whole stay. I would definitely be happy to go back to stay with Ella again! Good luck with those exams, Ella!!

Ella was a wonderful host... Easy to communicate with, helpful with advice and really responsive. Ella's place is close to the train stations and you have buses at your door step. Some great restaurants and shops close by. I recommend it!!

Ella's place is in a fabulous location, close to heaps of great places to eat and in a really vibrant fun neighbourhood. Very well connected to all public transport. Unfortunately, there was a new kitchen being put in when we were there so we couldn't use it to cook. Likewise the living room was full of stuff from the kitchen so that was pretty unusable too. We did book Ella's place so that we could have breakfast at home so this was pretty disappointing, although also completely out of her control. We asked her for a partial refund considering the place wasn't as advertised but as yet we haven't heard back from her. As long as all construction is finished I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her apartment to stay in although we didn't really get the full use of it.

Response from Ella:
Hi Tilly & Dylan I am sorry that those last two days of work disturbed your stay and wish you had mentioned it at the time - I could have at least rescheduled the second day. Your refund has been processed, all the work is now complete and the new kitchen looks great! Best wishes and enjoy the rest of your travels!

Ella was an amazing host, and was so helpful and attentive. Although her place was under renovations, she made sure I had everything I needed and that I was comfortable. The flat is wonderful, clean and comfortable, and is well situated in a lovely part of London. I highly recommend Ella for your next stay in London!

Families welcome and on occasion I can also offer baby-sitting for guests.
