Recommendation for place to stay: Near Islington N1 7TQ

I'm visiting my college aged daughter in October for about a week. She is living at 1 Thoresby House London N1 7QT. Can you recommend safe quiet place to stay nearby, and might there might be a spot to grab a bite nearby, as well. Are there any special events happening that month? I may be solo or possibly travelling with adult son. And could you advise on the weather. Thank you for your consideration

Your location is just north of City Road, a bit more Clerkenwell than Islington per se. The Premier Inn Old Street, a short ride on the 205 or 214 bus may be the business. The hotel has been open just over a year, and is a very good quality mid-range property. There is another PI behind the N1 shopping centre just off Upper Street, a short walk from Thorseby House; it's a newish hotel and also well worth a look.

If the PIs are beyond your budget, have a look at the Travelodge City Road. It's not far from the Old Street roundabout and also handy for buses along City Road, to the Angel and your daughter's digs. TLs are certainly more minimalist than PIs, but the City Road hotel is well situated, has clean, comfortable rooms, and if the price is right is well worth considering.

There are a great many places to eat and drink along Upper Street and surrounds as well as in Clerkenwell towards Farringdon Road and Exmouth Market.

'... could you advise on the weather.' There will be weather, but what to expect cannot be predicted. Have a look at the BBC weather page or www.metoffice.gov.uk much nearer your departure date, say the day of, and what is predicted then may come to pass by the time your flight will have arrived. There may be warm days and cool nights, cold days and nights, rain, drizzle, fog or warm clear skies and frosty evenings or any permutation of those.

Since you plan to travel next month you should book a hotel very soon. If the above three do not suit, let us know, and let us know your budget in pounds, please.
