We love the generous sense of space of our apartment, it is comfortable and inviting to truly feel at home in this busy cosmopolitan city. We have enough space to share a social week end, entertain or to enjoy some relaxation time. We love the location as we have many friends in this part of the city and many from elsewhere are converging here and meeting up. This part of London is so convenient for everywhere to get to with minimal effort, be it on foot, public transport, bicycle or by car. There are so many places to quickly get to and amuse yourself; nothing has to be a big trip or effort. Shopping, jogging at Hyde Park or going to the gym down the road, sightseeing, gallery visits; going out at night to restaurants or theatre etc. every outing is just so easy when you are in a central location like this.
