We spent two weeks in this apartment about a five minute walk from Angel tube station. Photos are very representative.
It's in a row of modest flats on a very quiet little street. Up one flight of stairs, you enter the apartment to a long hallway. The first room on the right is the main bedroom, with a very comfortable queen size bed, an armoire and a desk. Also bedside lamps, and large windows with curtains that block the light well. Across the hall is the second smaller bedroom with two twin beds, desk and closet.

At the other end of the apartment is the living room, with two sofas (one a futon) and a comfortable chair. There's a fireplace, but we didn't use it. Across the hall the kitchen, with four burner stove, full size fridge, basic cooking utensils and equipment, washing machine. Moka coffee pot, microwave in a cabinet we put on the counter. A tiny alcove holds a table and chairs, best for two or three, but four can squeeze. We did note that the kitchen was set for tall people, pots were on a high rack, dishes on a high wire shelf. The bathroom had a tub/shower with partial class enclosure, I'd caution that someone with mobility issues might find climbing out challenging.

Pluses--very quiet, good location for tube and busses, lots of shops and restaurants, responsive local owner, good wifi. Minuses--some furniture starting to show wear, high bathtub. Still, a great apartment for a family stay, we would book again.

Hi Amy,
That sounds good to me.
How did you contact the owner, please? How much do they charge?
Thank you,
Nick

Hi Nick--I contacted the owners through AirBnB, at the link above. Sorry, I don't have their private e-mail. We paid $189 a night for 13 nights in late October of 2016 (plus a cleaning fee and the AirBnB fee). For London, it was a good value.
