VERY QUIET AND CHARMING 2 BR FLAT FIVE MINUTES FROM TUBE

Kensington Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

This pretty flat is set in a smart, white-fronted period property in a quiet street near Holland Park. Decorated with floral prints and pretty pictures, it has a traditional English character and warm ambiance.

Unusually, the Kensington has its own book collection so you can curl up with a novel on its cosy sofas after a day’s sight-seeing.

The Kensington has excellent transport connections making it the perfect base for exploring London

This flat is located on a quiet one-way street lined with oak trees in Kensington & Chelsea in central London. A traditional British pub is on the street and two fine restaurants are just one minute away.

The Royal Borough has many bars, trendy cafes and markets. Westfield London, a new billion pound shopping complex, is nearby. The area is a centre of live music, especially at the Shepherd’s Bush Empire.

Holland Park, Notting Hill Gate, Portobello Market and High Street Kensington are only a 10 minute stroll away. You can walk to Kensington Gardens and Kensington Palace within 15 minutes. You can easily reach the West End and other parts of London via the local tube stations.

GREAT FLAT FOR A GOOD PRICE

  • 5 of 5
If you need to be in the Marble Arch area, as my mom did, this is the place for you. Nice amenities, just a few minutes walk to the Tube. Lots of stores around for grocery shopping so you don't have to haul your goods around. There were also several choices for car rentals close by so renting in the morning, taking a day trip into the country and returning that evening (why mess with the parking, right?) was easy. Carl and Liz were great to work with and very accommodating when we wanted to extend our stay. We will definitely be giving them a call the next time we're in London.

VERY PLEASANT APARTMENT IN NICE NEIGHBORHOOD

  • 5 of 5
Liz and Carl were friendly, extremely helpful and accommodating. They made a point of offering recommendations on things to do and see in London, as well as local restaurant suggestions. The location of the unit was very good, neighborhood and building were quiet and nice, and unit was a good size and clean though the second bedroom was a bit cramped for our two adult-size kids. Thus, our overall experience was excellent.

CUTE AND FUNCTIONAL FLAT IN KENSINGTON

  • 4 of 5
The flat was very functional, and close to the Tube. While you can hear traffic in the kitchen area (which wasn't enough to bother us), but back where the bedrooms are is very quiet (it's on the back street). We had a great stay.

GREAT LOCATION

  • 4 of 5
We are a family of five and the apartment was comfortable for all of us.The location was great - close to train, close to Notting Hill, beautiful parks for the kids and shopping. Our eldest son slept on the sofa in the living room which was a little noisy as that room fronted Holland park Road but the other two bedrooms were very quiet.The owners were terrific and very responsive to any questions we had before, during and after our stay. Highly recommend.

GREAT LOCATION AND VALUE

  • 4 of 5
This is a nice place--not too fancy but clean and it ticks all the boxes for a short stay in London. The location is just west of Holland Park and Notting Hill and only about 25 minute walk from High Street Kensington or a 8-10 min bus trip. Quiet and safe neighborhood and you are also right by the Westfield shopping center which is one of the largest indoor malls in Europe.

JUST WHAT WE NEEDED!

  • 4 of 5
We brought our two teenaged daughters to London as part if their first trip to Europe this summer. The flat we rented was great. The location was ideal. Charming, safe area very close to tube station. Our hosts were extremely helpful with suggestions for food and entertainment especially geared to the ages of our daughters. We ate in a few nights and the kitchen had everything we needed. The only difficulty we had was that the upstairs neighbors were very loud all through the night. That coupled with an uncomfortable bed meant little sleep for me. Everything else was wonderful. One of my daughters loved London so much that she didn't want to leave even though we were headed to Paris! Thanks for the great experience, it was our first VRBO stay, we will certainly do it again.
