Sunny, welcoming and unconventional private room with a beautiful view of London's skyline.
Fantastic public transport (underground, buses, overground and trains) accessible 24 hours.
In walking distance of King's Cross, Camden Town, Regent's Canal and Angel.
Easy going host and two calm and friendly cats to welcome you!
It's a clean, sunny, well equipped and lovely, albeit unpretentious apartment. Well insulated and quiet. The room is not large but not small either. There is space for your luggage under the bed.
The pictures don't show the room as it is now: the new decor is styled with vintage and upcycled furniture, some antiques and curios. Motifs from nature and sustainable materials give the room its special character. I can confidently say you will be pleasantly surprised.
You can see London's skyline lying on the bed: cool but may not work for you as it's 1 metre in height. Please contact me before booking if you have any mobility impairment.
All bed linen, vintage and soft, and the towels are pure cotton and good quality. There is a large drawer for your use, a shelf, plus space and hangers in the built-in wardrobe.
There are tea making facilities in the bedroom. A vegan breakfast in the living room (with fair trade drinks, plant milks, various cereals --and organic sourdough artisan bread when I can get it!) is included. Breakfast is from 8.30 to 9.30am, but it can be earlier or later depending on your needs.
Essential toiletries are: shower gel, shampoo, conditioner, soap, towels and a hair drier. The bathroom is opposite to the bedroom and separated from the living room, where I will work and sleep during your visit.
If you are on a longer trip, the washing machine is available. Happy to help you (a small contribution for it would be appreciated).
The room is ideal for two people. There is a spare air mattress, reasonably comfortable, that can be used for a child or for a last minute extra guest, although the room becomes 'very cosy' with a second bed! I ask for £12 per night for this.
My apartment is in zone 2 border with zone 1 (London has 6 zones) and the public transport is really fantastic, including 24 hours tube on Fridays and Saturdays, and a night bus that runs twice per hour. From my door to Piccadilly Circus, it can take as little as 15 minutes. However, if you wish to stay on a zone 1 accommodation, please choose accordingly.
My companions are furry people... No matter how much I clean, it's impossible to have a hair-free space when you live with furry people. Please bear that in mind when considering my place. If you relate well to non-human animals, you are going to love the boys, because their gentle, polite, affectionate nature.
We will be 'flat-mates' rather than 'guest and host'. You could not stay here if I didn't contribute to the expenses too. This is not a for-profit operation, but more like an apartment-share for a few days. The boys are also our flat-mates :)
Not updated pictures and a silly name? I'd like to surprise you with a space nicer than in the pictures, and also I prefer to protect my privacy with a pen name and cute cat's photo.
Lastly, I'd like to ask you that you please look at the impact your visit is making on the rented accommodation market. London has a terrible housing crisis and the rental prices are astronomical. Short-term accommodation is one of the reasons: rooms/apartments/houses are given to visitors instead of locals. Please see that your chosen accommodation is an ethical one.
Thank you for the time you took to read all this!
Islington is one of London's 32 boroughs. It is situated north of the Thames, and it is bordered by: Camden (west), Hackney (east), Haringey (north) and The City (south).
The expression 'central London' can be somewhat confusing. Is Westminster the centre?, the City?, King's Cross? Soho and the West End?, Hyde Park?, Kensington and Chelsea? All those areas could be considered so.
This apartment is near King's Cross, in the border of zones 1 and 2, and the public transport network with other 'central' areas is superb. This part of Islington is particularly well connected to international airports and stations, and to the entire city.
Caledonian Road is now being transformed fast by gentrification.
You have several trendy areas within walking distance: Islington's Upper Street and Angel; Camden's Camden Town Market, Kentish Town, King's Cross.
Hackney, which is pretty close too, is totally worth exploring.
You'll have plenty of info about what to do around.
There are a couple of small but charming parks nearby. Also a Victorian clock tower, a rare landmark remembering the Metropolitan Cattle Market that existed here.
