Fantastic flat in a great neighborhood
Wonderful flat with all the amenities provided. We had everything we needed down to the laundry detergent and dish soap. Great place for families (esp. with young children). Cozy and warm, located in a lovely neighborhood, close to the underground, near shops and restaurants. Easy to get to the city center as well. Quick response from owners and easy to pick up keys. Would absolutely stay again, and highly recommend.

London
Es hat uns sehr gut gefallen. Die Wohnung war sauber und völlig ausreichend für vier Personen. Die Lage war auch für uns völlig in Ordnung. Man hat relativ schnell, innerhalb von ca 30-40 Minuten, alle Sehenswürdigkeiten mit der U-Bahn erreicht.

Wonderful apartment provides local London color
We had the best of both worlds - a wonderful flat outside of downtown London, yet only a short walk to the subway station and in 15 minutes we were enjoying downtown London. The apartment is well maintained and lots of local information is provided in the "handbook".

Perfect
Myself and 4 friends stayed here for 3 nights. The apartment is ideally situated for getting about, there’s a bus stop 2 mins. walk and tube station 10 mins. - brilliant! Local shops and eateries just around the corner. The apartment is clean and well cared for. It is in a quiet area and is all you need for a break in London!

Nice apartment!
I stayed at Fichi in the City for four days with my family. The apartment is very nice, it has 2 bedrooms (1 king size bed and 2 singles) plus a couch that doubles as a king size bed if you open it. The place was 10 mins by walk from the Arsenal Underground station and there is a Bus stop just around the corner. The kitchen was fully equipped, the bathroom clean and the heating system worked properly. I would totally recommend this place, although I think that a family of 4 would be the perfect number since there is only on bathroom. We arrived a bit earlier than expected but I texted our check-in greeter and when we arrived he was there waiting for us, so bonus point for that!

Great location, clean and comfotable
Stayed for 3 nights with our daughters aged 12 and16 years. Fab location with lovely pub and useful shops just a few minutes walk. About ten mins walk through a pretty park to tube. Apartment is a little small but very clean and beds were super comfy. Good communication before and easy check in. Would recommend and return. Many thanks.

Très agréable !
L'appartement est parfait pour 4 personnes. Fonctionnel et confortable, on s'y sent bien. Il est bien situé, pas trop loin de la gare de King Cross-Saint Pancras, ça compte pour les valises ! Et le trajet appart-station de métro "Highbury & Islington" est agréable, le long du parc Highbury Fields. Le quartier est calme, on a super bien dormi ! Ian, le propriétaire est très sympa (même à distance !), son accueil chaleureux et ses réponses immédiates le rendaient abordable et nous rassuraient. L'équipe de "London Residents' Club" qui s'est occupé de notre accueil était aussi très disponible et arrangeant (nous avons pris possession de l'appart plus tôt que l'horaire standard). Nous avons commencé notre séjour sous la canicule, et en fermant les rideaux le jour et ouvrant les fenêtres la nuit, l'appartement est resté frais. Nous avons bien aimé les fauteuils et le canapé, on n'a pas toujours des meubles aussi douillets dans les locations ! Bref, nous avons bien aimé le logement et nous étions content d'y rentrer le soir après nos visites !

Great apartment- superb location- excellent host
We have just returned home after 6 nights in this apartment, (2 adults and 3 children aged 9, 11 & 12) and would highly recommend it to anyone and especially if you are travelling with children like us. The apartment itself is really lovely and totally spotless with all that you need for a comfortable stay. Towels, tea towels, shower gel, shampoo, washing up liquid and washing powder all provided as well as basic cupboard staples such as teabags, sugar etc. The sofa bed is huge and two of our children actually chose to sleep on it together rather than in the bed because it was so comfortable. It would easily accommodate 2 adults if required and there is the double bed in another room and twin beds in the other room. The area is lovely and very convenient if you want to travel into the city centre. It takes maximum 10 mins to walk through the beautiful Highbury fields to get to Highbury tube station and 10 mins from there to get to Oxford Street in the underground. We had a very jam packed time on holidays and were constantly on the go but this apartment is the ideal base for a quieter holiday also. Parking is available which is a big bonus and it is less than 2 hour drive to Legoland. Everyday, Highbury fields, which is right beside the apartment, was filled with people with barbeques, playing tennis, sunbathing and strolling around. There is a huge play-park for children which is well managed and the whole area is very clean, friendly and safe. There are plenty of shops around and a post office, butchers, chemist etc as well as lots of little cafes. We ordered Tesco groceries with same day delivery and used just eat to order food from a local Chinese while we were there which was all very convenient. I know one of my main concerns going with children was how safe the area was and I have to stress how impressed I was. On Friday night, we got into the local station after 11pm because we had been to see Mamma Mia and I wasn’t sure about walking back to the apartment but we did and it was lovely. The area through the park to the apartment was lovely and quiet and very well lit. There were a few couples walking through the park and some teenagers but no boisterous behaviour and I felt very at ease walking with the children even at that time of night. I’m not going to pretend that everything was perfect about our stay because unfortunately, the greeter was over an hour late meeting us on the day we arrived, which meant we had three tired and hungry children to entertain but not enough time to go looking for something to eat. He then didn’t seem to know which apartment was actually ours and thought he had the wrong keys. He couldn’t tell us about parking vouchers and had to ring the office plus he told us where to park but the next morning, we narrowly avoided a fine because we were parked somewhere we should have been! It also turned out that the fridge broke prior to us arriving but he failed to mention this to us so I put things into the fridge but got up the next morning to discover the fridge was warm. When I rang the greeters the next day, I was supposed to get a call back from maintenance within ten minutes and after one hour, I had to contact them again because this didn’t happen. It was a pity because the email communication from the greeters was great prior to arrival but we were really not impressed by the them during our stay if truth be told. Having said all this, we were extremely impressed by the owner Ian because when things with the greeters weren’t great, I reached out to him directly by email through trip advisor and he was fantastic at sorting things out from his end and he communicated directly with me on a number of occasions, by text, email and phone call. He ordered a new fridge and had it delivered and also offered to recompense us for any loss of food etc which was very generous. His personal touch dealing with the situation meant we could go ahead enjoying our holiday knowing that the problem was actually being resolved without the need for me to chase things up or without it impacting too much on us. In the end of the day, it was nobody’s fault the fridge broke and we were very impressed at how quickly and efficiently Ian dealt with things from a distance when he was made aware of the issue. In short, we would HIGHLY recommend this apartment to anyone going to London. As I said in the title - it is a lovely apartment in a superb location and the host is absolutely excellent. We hope to be back ourselves to stay in the not too distant future. Thanks again for everything Ian!
