"This studio is very cute, certainly compact but extremely functional and pretty. It’s just a few minutes away from the Highbury and Islington station and in an area famous for its delicious restaurants. The downside is that there is no washing machine or dishwasher, otherwise, the studio allows for cooking a small meal and has everything needed, included a TV and a music player. It definitely has personality; some of the few existing furniture pieces are exquisite, others are just pretty and simple such as the Eames replica chairs. The décor is vibrant and personal, adding a quirky feeling. Due to its size, simplicity and natural light it feels very cosy and romantic in here. The service too was very kind and personal. "
