A decent flat in a good neighborhood
We stayed six nights in this flat and were mostly pleased with our stay. The booking/check-in process was very easy, and the location is great--just around the corner from the underground station. We were disappointed in the flat though. It seemed dingy and worn compared to the photos on the site. The floors really are frightening, with broken floorboards, large gaps and very dirty. I was nervous having my one year old walking and crawling around on it. The kitchen and bathroom were very nice and mostly had what we needed, but a few things were missing or would have been nice, like bowls for breakfast/cereal, paper towels, more than one roll of toilet paper, sharp knives for cooking, etc. And more than one kitchen towel would be helpful.
It looked like some of the furniture has been recently updated since the pictures (newer couch, dining set and patio table/chairs). The outdoor patio is great, but again, large gaps in the flooring and many loose nails and screws laying around made it a little dangerous for little ones.
The location is really great, around the corner from the West Kensington station and lots of restaurants and markets near by. The owners had a very thoughtful package when we arrived, which included underground maps, tour/excursion info, and take-away/delivery menus for nearby restaurants, which was especially helpful since we arrived too late to go out anywhere. The wireless internet access was fantastic. I do have to mention the noise of the flat--it's situated between a very busy street and the train tracks, so it is quite noisy. We live in a big city, near a train, so we're used to those sounds, but I imagine it could be problematic for some.
I really wanted to love this place, and I do think it could be five stars with some work--new floors and a fresh paint job are a must!
Owner's Response: We value your comments and we are in the process of upgrading this flat this year. So when you return next year this will be a 5* apartment
