Serviced Apartment Review: Citadines Islington


Citadines Islington is one of the latest aparthotels in the city from The Ascott group who also have aparthotels in South Kensington, Barbican, Trafalgar Square and Holborn. 

What's unique about this property is that it was a former Grade 2 listed Royal Mail sorting office. It recently underwent a complete refurbishment and is now 108 modern air-conditioned studios and one bedroom suites all with access to on-site facilities like a guest's lounge, gym, laundrette and 24 hour reception. 

We take you on a tour inside the property with our local specialists to see the design, amenities and services on offer here.

As you walk in you see the 24 hour reception and seating area. 

They also have bikes and umbrellas you can borrow to explore the local neighbourhood.

Its Royal Mail heritage is evident throughout the interiors of the building's common areas as well as within the apartments themselves. 

Don't miss the glitzy gold mail box at the entrance which is used for gathering guest's feedback.

The Studio Deluxe Apartments are some of the best studio apartments we have see in the city. 

They have a comfy bed, sofa, table and chairs, large Chromecast TV, kitchenette and private bathroom. 

The kitchen comes with plenty of useful amenities to dine-in and cook including a 2 burner hob and microwave. There's a coffee maker and tea making facilities as well as washing up supplies.

All apartments have a safe and iron, but Deluxe ones have a yoga mat as well. 

The bathrooms are clean and practical with shower cubicles, premium towels and toiletries that come as standard.

We took a look at the One Bedroom Apartments next which have a living room and open plan kitchen area. 

Beautiful wooden flooring is present in the living areas along with contemporary bold rugs. 

The wallpaper has been custom designed for this property by Paris-based graphic artist and printmaker Jérémie Solomon and features behind every bed. 

The One Bedroom Apartments have a TV in the living area as well as in the bedroom.

Bathrobes are also provided for your comfort and convenience.

One Bedroom Apartments also come with full fridge freezers and combination ovens in addition to all the self-catering facilities as the Studios.

There is a high standard of health and safety procedures in place at this property. 

There is a good-sized gym available for all guests.

And next to the gym is a laundry room with coin-operated washing machines and dryers.

Back on the main floor on the right of the reception you will find the Resident's Lounge which is a great space to relax, meet people or set up your workstation if you want a break from your apartment.

There's a business corner with a computer and printer set up for anyone who needs it.

You can also grab a snack, tea or coffee or drinks from The Pantry, which is where they set up the Breakfast in the morning (extra charge).

The building sits just off Islington Square, a trendy little pedestriased area with eateries, bars, shops, a cinema and more.

The nearest tube station that we walked from was Highbury and Islington which operates the Victoria line and National Rail service.
