Guestbook comments from the manager
The apartment satisfied more than all of our needs. It was lacking nothing that we needed for our comfort and pleasure in spending a week in London. There were three generations of my family in residence and each of us was more than continent. The proximity to the Underground, local restraints, and breakfast/snack food shopping could not have been better. We had no trouble finding our way to the flat and thoroughly enjoyed the view from the balcony. I do not want to extol the apartment's virtues any more for I would hope it would be available for a week in the spring when another part of my family will be on Spring break. Thank you again for providing us with the base for a wonderful week in London.

Natalia & Mike: Frequent travellers around the world. We love to spend time in London from time to time. It has lots to offer!

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2006

London always has been one of the most visited cities in the world. After living in the property for many years we have moved overseas and decided to rent it out. It has excellent location, great amenities and stunning views. It offers quiete living while remaining in one of the busiest cities in the world. We really love it and hope our quests will enjoy it too!

Flat is very close to Hyde Park, shopping on Hight Street Kensington and museums nearby. Amazing BBQs in the summer and awesome sunsets.

Roomy flat for a large group!

  • 5 of 5
This was a great rental flat in a great location. Our group included four adults and two children. The flat is well appointed with high quality finishes, decorations and art works. It's kid friendly in that all of the art work etc is high from the floor or otherwise not easy to "play" with.

The balcony was our favorite and we spent most evenings enjoying the view and having some beverages.

The Gloucester underground station was a 4 minute walk, and there are several locations around for all types of food including Italian, Chinese, Malaysian, Indian, and good old British pub food. Also good to know that you can catch a double decker London tour bus from the station as well.

The location and apartment are all as described and pictured and the interactions with the owners all pleasant and stress free.

Some previous reviews mentioned difficulties with the balcony door. The mechanism is slightly confusing at first glance but if you can read or look at a picture it's really quite simple to operate. No dramas at all.
I'm also confused as to why someone would have wanted a curtain to cover the windows as the view is stunning and there are no higher properties in the vicinity. The showers all have glass doors now so no dramas there either.

Really the only issue we had is that although the flat has three bathrooms, there was not enough water pressure to operate all three showers simultaneously, which needs to be worked into the daily plan with a large group.

Comfortable apartment, conveniently located, close to tube, attractions and groceries

  • 4 of 5
Was the listing description accurate regarding the location?
Yes, absolutely.

Did the listing photos accurately reflect the rental's appearance and amenities?
Yes.

Was the property clean and well-maintained?
Yes

Was the owner helpful in answering your questions or concerns?
Yes. Extremely prompt, thorough and helpful. Thanks. The open communication by the owner itself made all the difference.

Would you recommend this property to a friend or relative?
Yes. Very much so.

What nearby activities, attractions and restaurants would you recommend?
Multiple Tube station is 5 mins walk. The big bus tour stop is 5 min walk. Sainsbury (Target) is less than a minute. Harrods and Natural History and Science Museums.

If you have kids and are staying for 4-5 days or more, this place will be super convenient and comfortable.

My only negative feedback would be (already provided to the owner directly as well) that the place could use a few extra pieces of bedding and towels. There are enough provided, but they are just enough. If you have any need for some more (as with kids or simply as Americans usually do due to size or habit ;) then will need to figure something out.

Great place to stay for a weekend with friends!

  • 5 of 5
We came on 4th of April to have a nice weekend with friends (3 girls). Main purpose was to see London and make some shopping. Flat is very nice and comfortable, everything is thought through. Beds are extra comfortable; look from the terrace is awesome. You can buy everything you need in shops and cafeterias right next to the building. 2 minutes walk to subway station. Very easy to get to all central tourist places and biggest shops, it takes you minutes to get to the city center. 1 stop till Victoria station with all coaches and trains. Flat owner is very friendly and ready to help in any questions.
We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely come here again!

Navigating our way to the flat was a challenge. After taking a lift we had to walk down two long hallways and then walk down a flight of stairs. There was no direct access and this was difficult with a lot of luggage. The flat was fine with adequate accommodations. The photos made the flat to appear nicer than it actually was so we were disappointed especially since we paid more than other flats we considered renting. There were no curtains in the main living area in front of the large sliding glass door. The seal of the door was broken allowing cold air to whistle into the flat day and night causing a constant chill. The shower curtain in the study/guest bedroom would not stay up and so we had to remove it altogether. I would have expected the standard of cleaning to be a bit better than it was. There was a lot of dust under the furniture and behind the furniture. This was only a problem for one guest who had allergies to dust mites and mold. It would have been nice to have had garbage bags available for the kitchen bin. As we were there around a holiday period most grocery stores were closed so we had to use small plastic carry bags. The location was good with easy access to the Tube. Nice view. The owner was very easy to work with and seemed very pleasant so I will give a higher rating than it deserved.

Owner's Response: Dear Carol, I am really sorry that we couldn't match your expectations. I have clear descriptions about location of the flat and all is usually discussed prior to the booking. We have addressed other issues already and have our handyman do necessary adjustments. Flat matches photos to the smallest details (except for office bedroom). We have lived in this apartment for 7 years and I never needed curtains in the living room as there are no neighbours opposite and the view of London skyline is spectacular. Thank you for you visit and honest review.
