I had the chance to stay at the Arlington Avenue Guest House for 4 weeks this summer! My parents had already stayed at this guest house and had really enjoyed their stay. I was in London for a very intensive training course. I needed a very quiet and peaceful place to stay. The guest house is located in a very... More

We booked this room back in April and found Thomas to be both knowledgeable and very helpful. The prices are amazing. We will definitely try to book this B&B when we return to London (it's very popular and requires long range planning). One of the difficulties with reviewing this is it's not a hotel, thus many of the questions just... More

We stayed for 2 nights here as we were visiting a dear friend for our yearly Xmas dinner. Thomas is very helpful and gave us directions and some tips. I liked that you are 'left to it' after initial greetings. The double rooom we had was cosy, warm and very pleasant. The bathroom, shared with one other if the single... More

This elegant Islington house is ideal for those wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle of London. There is plenty of public transport around within walking distance. One can walk along Regents Canal to Islington for example. A different experience as it is more like staying in private accommodation. There are 2 rooms (1 double and 1 single)... More

Wonderful rooms, great location and a nice host ! I´m wondering about guests aren´t satisfied staying at the "Arlington Avenue Guesthouse". And it´s not too difficult to use the burglar alarm (mentioned in the negative reviews below). The location is great: There is a multitude of buses nearby, Islington´s Upper Street is a nice stroll away and even "Boris´s bikes"... More

I stayed here while in London for work and will certainly go back. The house was lovely - elegant and peaceful. The room was very comfortable and looked down to the pretty garden. The location is very good, close to transport and places to eat on Upper Street.

This accommodation is good value for London; the room was comfortable and in a nice part of town close to the canal. However I wouldn't stay here again. Nor would I recommend it to anyone, unless they are able to put up with the extremely odd and controlling behavior of the live-in owner. Upon arrival, there was no exchange of... More

Dear ‘Sheena’ (not your real name). You don’t tell the truth about when you stayed; your review is so full of inaccuracies and misrepresentations it would be too boring to list them. If you were a genuine guest, you have reneged on agreements you made with me of your own free will. I notice that you feel that you are... More

My stay at Thomas's house was very enjoyable. I found Thomas very accommodating with check in and check out arrangements. The bedroom went beyond expectations: very clean, well decorated, well-lit, with a view of the garden The bed was extremely comfortable with proper cotton sheets and a duck down pillow and duvet. It had me very well rested after a... More

Arlington Avenue has been a good experience for me. 7 minutes walk along the river from the nearest station(Haggerston), so a great walk too. The house is elegantly furbished and the rooms are comfy and very clean. The neighborhood is super quiet and the house too. The toilet is well equipped with marble fining and high pressure shower/bath. Not an... More

Back for the second time, as it is the perfect oasis in London. No traffic noise, but so close to buses and a walk along the canal to Angel tube station. Very friendly, very relaxed, and a real feeling of freedom. Double bedroom is the best bet, breakfast is self service but all the more relaxed for that. Decor is... More
