Lovely room on the top floor of a beautiful Victorian flat in Highbury & Islington. You are near so many amazing places, but the street is peaceful with a residential feel to it even though it's only a five-minute walk from Highbury & Islington station. Central London is 15 minutes away.
The room is on the same floor as the bathroom and two other rooms. The kitchen and another bedroom are below you. The people living in the flat are three friendly girls in their late 20s.
You are near SO many amazing places to eat and drink, you will never be bored in Islington. It is also close to so many other parts of London that you can explore with ease. As mentioned, the area is very lively and fun but this particular streets and the ones surrounding it are extremely peaceful; many nice parks nearby as well.
You'll be a five-minute walk from Highbury & Islington station (Victoria Line tube + Overground) and also five minutes walk from Caledonian Road (Piccadilly Line) or ten minutes from Angel (Northern Line). It's a busy neighbourhood with a lot to do but the street we're on is extremely peaceful, residential. Oxford Circus is four stops away, so getting to Central London can take as little as 15 minutes. 10 min bike rides from Stoke Newington, Dalston, Hackney and 5 mins from Angel and Holloway Road.
