Guestbook comments from the manager
Beautiful apartment and incredible location!

The apartment was just as described and perfectly clean and set up.

John was a great owner to deal with - very accommodating and very quick to reply to any questions.

Will definitely stay here again on my next trip to London.

Born in Portugal, Lisbon, then lived in Chile, Indonesia and now London, I work to make my property the most accommodating in this city.

As a seasoned traveler myself, I understand the importance of the comfort of home as well as an adventurous experience in a new city. I combine both of these to ensure a positive, memorable experience for all of my guests.

I enjoy traveling, great food and vibrant atmospheres and want to share that with others through our property locations. These locations are all minutes away from my friends and my favorite restaurants, bars, and shopping areas. We really love it here and know you will too!

I look forward to welcoming you to my city!

John

Super location, great finishes and comfortable just like being at home.

It's located on a quiet private garden but super central, only 100m away from Portobello Road.

EXCELLENT!

  • 5 of 5
My wife, three kids, and I had a wonderful stay in the Notting Hill Apartment. It was in a perfect location - literally steps from restaurants, pubs, and the Portobello Market. We used the apartment as our hub for all our sightseeing in London. It is a short 10 minute walk from the Tube, so it was easily accessible to everywhere we wanted to go. While we found the apartment plenty big enough for our family, it would be cozy for 5 people if you plan to spend a lot of time in the apartment. But, it was plenty big enough for us to return to after a day of sightseeing to relax comfortably!

NICE APARTMENT MEETING EXPECTATIONS AND PHOTOS

  • 4 of 5
well furnished apartment corresponding at its description. Everything you need for the stay is available and works well. John was every time reachable and helpful. However the early check-in is not exactly what it would mean in France. But we finally find an agreement. I will recommend this flat.

Owner's Response: Dear Sabine,
Thank you for your review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay at my Notting Hill apartment in London.
Regarding the early check in, it's impossible to come in before 11:00 am, as I had guests leaving at that same time and I can not have 2 different groups of guests inside one apartment at the same time for everyone's comfort and safety.
Best regards,
John

GREAT NEIGHBORHOOD

  • 3 of 5
Great neighborhood, just around the corner from Portebello Road and lots of charming restaurants and shops. Neighborhood felt safe. Easy walk to tube or you could catch a bus close by.
Apartment was an odd layout with the only tv in the bedroom and a small pull out couch/bed in the living area that when pulled out took up all floor space. It was clean though and had everything we needed. Our major complaints were lack of enough hot water and the main lock on the front door just didn't work.

COMFORT IN NOTTING HILL

  • 5 of 5
Great stay in a comfortable flat. Fit 3 adults perfectly. Lovely neighborhood walks to the tube, restaurants, and Kensington Gardens. We would definitely stay here again. John was super helpful and upon meeting him it felt as if he could have been one of our friends from home. We had a great time in London. Thanks John!

DISAPPOINTED. NOT A GOOD PART OF NH

  • 2 of 5
The flat is tiny and not as large as the photos would have one believe. The bathroom, in particular was designed for a Lilliputian to use. One has to squat first on the loo then pull one's legs in around a water tank that does not allow one to sit with one's feet directly on the floor in front of him/her. I would also say that the flat is located in the "dodgy" end of NH, several blocks from where the homes in NH begin to show pride in ownership. There is no place to hang clothes to dry and no dryer. The walk to the underground is at least 15-20 minutes, and finding the flat was very difficult for cab drivers. We stayed for 4 nights and had no change of towels or bedding, and we had to remove the trash ourselves. There are two wooden chairs and a tiny table in the "dining" room making it very difficult to sit and eat, and the hot water only works for short periods in the morning and evening...and then runs out quite quickly. We never met the property owner/manager. I would not recommend this place to a relative or friend, particularly at this price.

Owner's Response: Dear Francis,

Thank you for your review. I work hard to please every guest but some are harder to please. I would just like to clarify some issues you raise as they can be misleading:
- It's not written anywhere and it was never discussed that you would have interim cleaning in your short 4 day stay with changing of bedding and towels and removing of trash (?)
- The apartment is exactly as it shows in the photos, it has a large bedroom and a small kitchenette and dinning area with a sofa bed.
- Pricing is in line with Central London and this area, I would be very surprised if someone could find a similar property in this area for less than you paid.
- It takes only 8 min walk to get to the nearest underground station, this can be checked on Google maps.
- The hot water has a timer which is set for mornings and evenings, as it's normal for electric hot water thanks, but it's very easy to override the timer simply pressing on a boost button, this is described in the instructions manual I provide.
- There is a cloth dryer stored inside the wardrobe, this is also on the instructions manual
- The apartment is not at all in the "dodgy" (?) part of NH, it's a closed condo, with private garden less than 1 min walk away from Portobelo Road and with beautiful Victorian buildings surrounding it.
Some people are not used to travel and expect the same standards in size and price as where they come from.
