My wife and I stayed at the Kandara this July with our two teenage children. After staying at a variety of places in London earlier in our trip, the Kandara was like a breath of fresh air. Wonderful place, quiet, great English breakfast served according to your individual preferences, and the hosts are very open and helpful people. The street... More

Thank you for your kind review. There are 5 bus routes on Essex Road. All of these buses go to the Angel Station and the average waiting time for a bus is about 1 minute! Some of these routes run 24 hours a day (less frequent after midnight) Canonbury Station and Dalston Junction Station are about 7 minutes walk from... More

I came in July and once again had a fantastic stay at Kandara. I have been coming for the last 17 years and the standard has never fell. It is always very clean and welcoming. Nothing is too much trouble. It is convenient to get to all areas of London very easily. I would never stay anywhere else in London.

Shared bathrooms but no problems with that. What more can I say? Oh! tasty, well cooked breakfast in a pleasant dining room opening out onto the garden. We had a lovely stay with... More

The Kandara Guesthouse, near Angel tube station and many busstops, turned out to be a very good find for us. We, two adults and two 14-year olds, had a nice room in the basement of the house with a bathroom in the corridor. Everything is spotlessly clean, service is very friendly and we loved the freshly cooked breakfasts with a... More
