“" Cozy Night"”
Reviewed May 23, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

The awesome experience traces back to the very easy booking process - very convenient. The serene Island location is just the perfect night gift after a hectic day. And, yaaaay..if you the person who rolls while sleeping, this is just for you- the queen size bed makes the perfect definition for a "Good Night Sleep."

Thanks very much for your review, I'm very pleased you found the bed relaxing. Of course Highbury isn't a physical island but it can be an oasis of elegant calm after a busy day of sightseeing in London.

“Perfect stay in London”

I chose to book on the basis of all the great reviews and the area. We based ourselves here when we returned to the UK from Australia. The flat was cosy and welcoming. Everything we needed was there.
Ian was the perfect host. The booking process was easy and we were welcomed and shown around.There was a minor issue with the lighting and this was quickly sorted out.
We LOVED the area, super friendly and great transport links close by. We enjoyed dining in the local pub and turkish restaurant. The area and the apartment itself felt safe and secure.
I would most definitely stay here again!!

“Great Apartment except for late check in fee”

This is a lovely 2 bedroom apartment with 1 queen sized bed in one room and 2 singles in the other.
Lounge area is very nice just like the photos. Kitchen good.
HOWEVER we arrived at 10:30 pm and were charged an extra 40 pounds to have someone meet us with the key at this time which we thought was excessive. I would think carefully about what time your flight arrives( add 2 hours to get from Heathrow) arriving at the apartment after hours could end up costing you a lot more than you are expecting. The owners should get a box with a code number to leave the key in to prevent the need for someone to meet guests and then charge the fees. Other places we have stayed do not charge these fees for late( but scheduled) arrival times.

Thank you for your review, I am very pleased that you liked the flat and enjoyed your stay in London.
For a lot of visitors to London it is reassuring to be met in a strange city however I understand that £40 is a lot of money to be asked for. These charges have now been reduced considerably and will always be advised at time of booking.

Great little apartment, perfect location, walking distance to tube and shops and cafes, loved being able to open the french window in the mornings, very comfortable, clean and well kept. Felt like we were at home - we walked a lot and the neighborhood had everything we needed.

We stayed twice within a few weeks. The apartment is very close to both Arsenal and Highbury/Islington tube stations and for those who like to walk, central London is not far away. The surrounding area is very nice and safe and we found many great coffee shops / restaurants.

I would certainly recommend the place to anyone

Fichi in the City is a 2-bedroom apartment with everything (and I mean everything, down to towels, a fully stocked kitchen, washer/dryer, wifi, and even a tablet) you need for a comfortable stay in London. The location is great: just 10 mins walk through the lovely Highbury Park to Highbury & Islington tube station, which is a few stops away from Oxford Circus.

What's unique is that the apartment is also located near a little parade of shops, which include a bakery, pub, restaurants, local greengrocer and a local health shop, so you get the big city experience as well as the 'village' experience - which is as 'London' as you can get.

For those with children (ours is 2), there are singalong activities in the Church around the corner and in the Central Library located 10 mins walk through the park, and, of course, playgrounds in the park itself. There are also public tennis courts in the park :0).

The apartment itself is on a quiet road, is well heated and really comfortable. It was a joy to come back to after long days out. It really does feel like a home away from home. We stayed for 3 weeks and completely enjoyed our time there. We would highly recommend it!
