The apartment was just as advertised. Plenty of room for the four of us, and the location was excellent. A brisk 5 minute walk to Highbury & Islington station, and 10 minutes to Angel. Highbury was the station we used most often (Victoria line), but Angel was handy for Greenwich DLR connections, and for Camden market. Plenty of groceries, restaurants, & shops to choose from along Upper street in either direction.
The apartment itself had a couple of caveats- the one bathroom was an ensuite, so everyone will be trooping through the bedroom to get to it. Also, as warned, there are bars quite close, with loud music on weekends. Neither was an issue for us (I actually slept through the thumping club music both nights, was told about it the next day by my husband and kids), but YMMV.
Everything worked well- all kitchen appliances (incl washing mashine), shower, TV, wi-fi. There was a pay as you go mobile available, which we used once to make a local call. The bed and sofa bed were very comfortable, with good linens. The apartment was clean and well maintained. Plenty of space at the dining table for 4 or more.
The management company was very easy to deal with, and everything was very well organised. We were very pleased with the stay, esp for the price we paid. Highly recommended.

This apartment is situated in a great lively neighborhood. But traffic is quite heavy and noisy also at night. In the ugly backyard there is a an ventilator constantly running and smelling from the restaurant below.
The flat is by no means spacious. There is no wardrobe, no shelf and no drawer to put the clothes. The standard of cleanliness was poor e.g. we found some used handkerchiefs in and under the bed sofa.
Wifi and television equipment works good. The friendly staff answers e-mails immediately.
