Once again, the Kandara is a perfect place for B&B. Set in a very quiet area, but which is very convenient for central London, it is such an agreeable place to stay in. My bedroom was a nice size, the bed was very comfortable and the breakfast was great - a good choice and my full English was perfectly cooked,... More

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.

The village was filled with great restaurants British food has come a long way. Gone are the days of only Fish and Chips... More

Kind and welcoming owner, very nice house, immaculately clean everywhere. Pretty bedroom at the back, overlooking the gardens, quite quiet for London, comfy bed, great night's sleep. 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

We stayed friday to sunday (couple and 5-year old boy) and found the place very nice. It was easy to get to with public transport and the staff were very friendly. Bathrooms and toilets are outside the room, but nice and clean. The cooked english breakfast is also very good and the service was always friendly. Nice quiet neighborhood, with... More
