Caroline @HomeAway purchased this apartment in 2000

Why Caroline @HomeAway chose Kensington & Chelsea

Fantastic central London location in Zone 1, close to all public transportation networks, including bike hire. The nearest tube & mini-bus stops are direct to 2 London Airports and the Eurostar Terminal. A wonderful mix of unique Chelsea & everyday essentials are all near by. Many supermarkets, coffee shops, restaurants, pubs, take-aways, banks etc nearby.

What makes this apartment unique

Very convenient central London location with easy access to all public transportation networks: tubes, trains, buses, bike hire, river boat & of course London black cabs/taxis. Ideal location to enjoy all of London - for your holidays, for longer stays or a business trip. Whether you want to enjoy the tourist sights or shop all-day! 10 minutes taxi from Harrods department store and the Museums of South Kensington! Ideal combination of essential everyday shops plus exciting variation of restaurants & bars within easy reach. The nearby overground train line takes you to the Harry Potter exhibition near Watford (north of London), or to the suburbs to visit Windsor Castle or Hampton Court Palace.

An ideal location to stay in if you have business at Olympia Exhibition Centre. Convenient location if visiting or working at Chelsea & Westminster Hospital on Fulham Road.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I took my family with me on a business trip to London (November 21st – 30th 2012.) We had an amazing time and a big factor was choosing this apartment was. Firstly we had pre-arranged to check-in very late at night (arriving from Gatwick) & were still welcomed warmly. The apartment was comfortable, really clean, and looked like the website photos. The location was excellent: close to two tube stations with bus stops everywhere. Round the corner are grocery stores & numerous restaurants & pubs. There was even a gym near the tube station. It was close to everything we needed (including Starbucks!) We'll be back next year. Thanks Caroline! 5/5

Comfy and very clean flat with excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Caroline, the owner, is very responsive and accommodating. I received prompt responses to my inquiries, and Caroline's transaction instructions are very straightforward. We had to add a day to our stay (fortunately there was a vacancy) and leave early in the morning on the last day and Caroline was able to accommodate our schedule.

The flat was very clean when we arrived. Caroline was there to greet us and help us get settled. The flat is as represented in the advertisement. Modern, clean and comfortable. There are double beds in the two bedrooms, and a fold-out double sofa bed in the front room. The bathroom was spotless with several cabinets for use for toiletries.

The flat is located on the third floor and there is no elevator.

The property is located on a very busy one-way street but once the front windows were closed it was very quiet, especially in the back of the flat where the two bedrooms are located. Other than the traffic, the neighborhood was also very quiet, especially after 10 pm.

The location of the property is in a safe neighborhood, even after dark we felt at ease walking from the tube station to the flat.

As Caroline mentions in the listing, the flat is a ten minute walk to the Earls Court underground tube station. There are two grocery stores in the area, and several excellent restaurants within easy walking distance.

Caroline is a very professional landlord and her flat is a wonderful place to stay in London. When my wife and I return to London, we intend to stay there again.

Cosy apartment

  • 4 of 5

Overall a smooth experience from start to finish. Caroline met us at the apartment to familiarize us with all the things we would need for our stay and gave us some excellent local knowledge tips. As advertised the apartment had good facilities such as washer/dryer and well equipped kitchen. While the road on which the apartment is situated is very busy, the bedrooms at the rear of the apartment are quiet. Local parking is difficult so better to not have a car. Location is a 5 min walk to a Tesco Express & less than 15 mins walk to Earl's Court tube station where there's also an M&S nearby. After a long day the 3 flights of stairs to the apartment can seem a long way up, but were very comfortable here.

Wish I could give more than 5 stars

  • 5 of 5

This flat is amazing: wonderful location, meticulously clean, loaded with conveniences (washer/dryer, dishwasher), and attractively decorated. The bedrooms, which face a pretty garden area, are dead quiet, and the beds are so, so comfortable. Caroline was great, too. She was very responsive to emails, met us at the flat to orient us, and provided detailed instructions and helpful information. We could not have picked a better place to stay in London.

Convenience and comfort

  • 4 of 5

This apartment was ideal for our family of four - a clean, decent sized, well located base for seeing London. Despite central location, we slept well with no noise at night as rooms are located at back. Bonuses were having information and maps provided, Caroline greeting us promptly on arrival, and a Nespresso which helped us wake up each day!

Highly satisfied

  • 5 of 5

My family of six stayed in this flat for a week over our spring break. Caroline was quick to answer emails and helpful with questions. She was there to show us the flat upon our arrival and left detailed descriptions and expectations. The flat was close (short walk) to restaurants, small grocery stores and Earl's Court Tube station. We had a great time exploring London and this flat was a great home base. Thank you!

Clean, nice and quite central

  • 5 of 5

First of all, those two quiet and very well equipped bedrooms provided us with excellent chance to "recharge" ourselves after a long day in the city. Beds are large and comfortable, lining and duvets are of high quality. The sitting room is big enough, and the fully equipped kitchen was fantastic. Especially for non pub-food-fans, the kitchen and the supermarkets nearby provide a very good basis for a culinary diversity. The pub on a nearby the street is a must-visit, they have the best craft-beers on tap in the neighborhood. Bus stations 328 and 14, as well as tube station Earl's Court, are within 10 minutes of walk, you can also choose to walk to the museums in South Kensington. Landlord is a careful and lovely Londoner. All in all, it was a very nice stay worth repeating.

Fantastic central London location in Zone 1, close to all public transportation networks: buses, underground, trains, bike hire & river boats. Easy reach of all tourist sights. Walking distance to shops & restaurants on Fulham Road & the King's Road, and the Kensington museums. All essentials are only 3 minutes walk away: supermarkets, restaurants, coffee shops, pubs, banks, take-away venues, dry-cleaners, post office, florists, pharmacy, beauty salons, hairdressers, wine bars, clubs, work-out gyms etc.

Very convenient for business travellers visiting Olympia Exhibition centre & medical professionals attending at Chelsea & Westminster Hospital. Nearby overground train line offers easy access to tourist attractions outside of London (e.g. Windsor Castle or Hampton Court Palace) or north of London (e.g. Harry Potter Exhibition).

Heathrow Airport and the Eurostar Terminal are both direct on the Piccadilly Line to the nearest tube station. The nearby 'Easybus' stop provides a direct mini-bus service to Gatwick Airport.
