Spring Break in London

My husband and I and our 2 children, age 21 and 16 stayed here in April and found flat to be very comfortable and clean. The location was great-lovely area, quiet, walking distance to Portobello Market. Bus and tube very accessable. Loved the Italian restaurant right across the street, and The Cow pub around the corner. Especially liked having food stocked in our flat- a service that was offered. However, extra toilet paper and laundry soap not included, so buy or bring your own. The owners were very welcoming and prompt with answers to e-mails. Only downfall was dealing with money exchange: rate, wire transfer from US bank, finalizing payments. That was a real test of patience-probably on both sides. Heads up: be certain you know entire fee before signing rental agreement. Aside from that, the entire stay was comfortable and very enjoyable with owners being more than accomodating.

Liz, Carl and Nelly went out of their way to make a special stay for our first family trip abroad. Great location, comfortable and clean furnishings, easy check-in/out, super authentic neighborhood feel with a double plus for the driving, shopping and internet/phone service.

Can't wait to come back

Review of our stay in Notting Hill

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Nov 21, 2013

Our family of four stayed in the Notting Hill flat during our holiday in London in September. The flat was in line with our expectations based on the photos. We really appreciated the extra space that a flat provides over a hotel, and the kitchen was also really appreciated because we didn't want to eat out every meal. The flat is very clean and comfortable, and the location is great with proximity to buses, trains, restaurants, pubs, parks and shops. It is difficult to single out a particular restaurant - all that we tried in the local area were good. We met Nelly on our arrival, who was very helpful. The local mobile phones were also very useful.

Too Many Unexpected Surprises at this Notting Hill Flat

  • 2 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 30, 2013
  • Stayed: Oct 2013
We've booked many apartments in Europe but this one had too many unexpected surprises:
- When I asked for all-inclusive prices (including taxes and cleaning fees) we were given one price but learned about an additional cleaning fee which was significant, only after we agreed to the booking.
- The owner promotes value-added amenities such as complimentary landline phone, two mobile phones and a computer. However, upon arrival, we learned that we had to pay a per-minute charge for all outbound phone calls on both the landline and mobile phones. We've rented apartments in other European countries where use of the landline phone was free for local calls. We should have been alerted in advance.
- The flat was promoted as being a high-end flat with a Victorian fireplace (which we never used) in an excellent location. The location was, in fact excellent in terms of being on a quiet street and near public transportation, restaurants and shopping. However the furnishings inside the flat were of poor to fair quality.
- The master bedroom was fine but the second bedroom had very poor quality foam mattresses for the two twin beds which were so low to the floor that two adults had great difficulty getting up and down on the beds. There was literally no space to walk between the two jammed beds or a ledge or table for the smaller inside twin bed to place a clock, glasses, or book on a ledge. No room at all for a lamp or side table. Fine for sleeping young kids but not adults.
- The stand-up shower had beautiful marble tile but no place to hold a bar of soap -- not even a cheap plastic soap dish. We had to bend to the ground to pick up our soap and shampoo. There was no electrical outlet in the second bathroom either. Towels were minimal and very poor quality.
- We requested a roll-away bed for a 4th adult. It could not be opened to fit in any of the rooms. We had to take the foam pad from the rollaway and put it on the futon in the living room which was very uncomfortable with splintered wood slats.
- The kitchen appliances worked just fine but we had continual problems with the combination washing machine/ dryer door. There were no instructions for the washer/dryer and we had to have Nellie make a special trip back to the flat to give us instructions on how to work the washer. She even conceded the the door was a difficult to close properly.
Too much hype about the Victorian fireplace whereas the rest of the flat is quite ordinary with IKEA grade furniture.
