We wanted a true getaway, that included our "own" space in which to relax, and this Belgrave Road garden flat was perfect for us. Lots of space for 2 people who are more than a little spoiled, and would have easily accommodated 4 comfortably. Perfectly outfitted with a neutral palette (very soothing), full kitchen WITH a combination washer and dryer (helpful when I got chocolate from a Peggy Porschen cupcake on my trousers!) and 2 full bathrooms. The beds were extremely comfortable, and there was even a large selection of pillows from which to choose the proper firmness. The small outside patio/garden area allowed us to enjoy morning coffee and tea in the sunshine, and was the biggest factor in our choice of a flat. We had wanted an outside area where we could have a morning cigarette without polluting the apartment, and the charming wooden patio off the main bedroom suited us perfectly. Cleaning service was available, but the apartment was spotless when we arrived, and there were supplies there (including a vacuum) for us to keep it up comfortably.
A very short walk down the street brought us to "our local", a pub named The Gallery, which had the BEST fish and chips we found in London, and a delightful ambiance. Very strongly recommended. The Pimlico tube station was only a couple of minutes stroll away, enabling us easily to get all over the city without the hassles of London traffic. The flat itself is on a medium busy street, with great noise insulation, so no traffic or outside conversations disturbed us.
The managing agency, Ivy Lettings, was very responsive to questions, and very helpful in the renting process. We were met by Chris, a delightful Aussie gentleman, who patiently answered all of our (jet-lagged) questions and showed us everything. No need to call them with complaints or concerns during our stay, although from our pre-rental interaction with them, I believe they would have been right on top of any problems.
We have to travel to London several times a year on business, and this flat is our new pied a terre. The Internet had a strong signal, which enabled me to keep up with emails, and I could have a meeting in the living room or around the dining table as needed. About the same price as a luxury hotel, but with privacy and amenities that made it a haven for us.
