Very spacious, quiet room with separate kitchen and washer/dryer. Many good restaurants nearby, and close to public transport. Had everything we needed for a 5 night stay in London and would definitely use again.

We spent a week here recently and just loved everything about it. It was situated in a great spot for us - walking distance to Angel Tube Station on the Northern Line. One stop from St Pancras International for Eurostar trips, and Kings Cross Tube with a direct line out to Heathrow for a very reasonable cost (buy an Oyster Card). The security is quite tight to get in the gate which makes it a very safe place to stay. There is parking (although we didn't use it), the internet works well (and is free) - we were delighted to find a router in our apartment which meant that the Wi-Fi actually worked (not a given with all hotels in the UK). The staff were very welcoming and helpful, and because they were not booked out we were automatically upgraded to a huge two bedroom apartment even though we had only paid the very reasonable price for a one bedroom. The flat was spotless and very comfortable. The kitchen was equipped with a dishwasher and washer/dryer as well as the usual appliances. There is a convenience store across the road along with a lovely organics shop and fast food shop. A short walk away was Jamie Oliver's Italian Restaurant, a couple of nice pubs, a street market, Marks & Spencer, Waitrose and a big Sainsburys supermarket as well as banks and the usual High Street shops. We walked past a lovely fenced park each day which was open until late afternoon. We couldn't think of a better spot to stay in London!!!!!

Room Tip: Top floor rooms may be the quietest in busy periods (the floor squeaks a bit)

This apartment offered us a full kitchen, washer/dryer, 2 br 2 bath, living room/TV/internet for 4 family members. 5 minutes to Angel tube station. Many restaurants within walking in either east or west direction. Small markets nearby. Minimal involvement of staff which was kind of nice for a longer stay. Rooms not cleaned daily but weekly for a charge. Met our needs well and I would use again.

Our arrival here after long haul flight from Australia went smoothly with a friendly and helpful staff member on reception. Clean rooms and rapid response to any maintenance concerns. Biggest quibble is the curtain fabric which is far too light which does not help if recovering from jet lag. Could walk to Tower of London (approx 35 minutes).

We stayed here for a whole week from February 26 2014 and our stay was warm and comfortable in this handsome, clean and spacious Apart-hotel. We were given a one bedroom apartment overlooking the inner garden. Everything we needed was on hand, the buses, the tube, taxis, all available within very short walks. Even Sadler's Wells Theatre is within walking distance. St. Mark's is in Islington, a shimmering, lively, vibrant part of the City, and it's not noisy at night-time. Sitting a little back from the road helps with general city traffic noise anyway.

Stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment for 3 nights. Took us a little us (my parents, my wife and 3yr old son) a little about 30min to get from angel station to the apartment location as the road signs are not clear enough. For those relying on public transport, Angel station is the nearest, but NOT as near as you expect. It's about 10-15min walk if you know your way around.

The apartment wise is ok, a little tired for some furniture and items. It's definitely not the standard of like Ascott Singapore but still quite liveable. The staff there are excellent, nothing to complain about. The only thing I'm probably a little uncomfortable about is the small space for the kitchen. The kitchen gets crowded when there are 2 people in there. There is a bathtub in our apartment but be forewarned, it's probably due to the tap water but the bathtub is extremely slippery. The water pressure for the 2 bathrooms are a little different with the bathtub one much stronger than the other toilet. The water pressure in the other bathroom (standing stall) can be a little irritating.

It's easier if you know how to take buses 205 and 214 to get to kings cross station than to use angel station. Note that from July 2014, the buses do not accept cash, so get your ticket prior boarding at underground stations or use their Oyster card (stored value card). Near to angel station are the big supermarkets but note that they close quite early on some days and late in other days so check out their operating hours and don't get caught. There's a 24 hrs McDonalds near to the angel junction though so you will not go hungry.

Here's how to get to the apartment from angel station: Get out of angel station, turn left, walk to the traffic junction and turn left again. You will then see 2 different major roads merging to where your junction is. Take the one on the left and walk. You should see a bus stop with a cafe and a shop right behind it. Walk on to the next bus stop with a row of shops selling things like organic food, fish and chips and the apartments are on the other side of the road. If you walk on for another bus stop, you will find a petrol station with another McDonalds but this one operates 5am-1am. There are some grocery shops there but all did not fit my liking.

Spot on. Location is excellent, good bus service, close to 2 tube stations (Angel is nearest) and a couple of shops across the road for food/drink. Building itself is attractive and the staff are excellent. Knowledgeable of the local area, amenities and transport links and very helpful inside the building as well. We had a 2 bedroom apartment for myself, the wife and our 5 year old son and it was everything we wanted. Bedrooms were spacious and there was a separate shower room and en-suite bathroom. Block itself is centrally located but very quiet during the evening/night. would definitely stay here again/recommend.
