There is a landline for local calls so you don't need to spend a fortune calling from an international cell/mobile. A fireplace gives the living area a very atmospheric feel. A romantic apartment for couples but also ideal for families.

The apartment is beautifully furnished with large handcrafted antique mirrors, large pillar candles and Fleur de lie period-style designer curtains.

Excellent location, great family stay at this flat

  • 4 of 5

The location can't be beat, close to two tube stations, Gloucester and South Kensington, it was so easy to get everywhere. The flat is also close to some really good restaurants, pharmacy and grocery stores, anything we needed. The beds and linens were super comfortable and the owners provided the soaps, shampoos and toilet paper which added a nice and convenient touch. The owners were also super responsive, as we had some issues operating the washer and the TV, but these got sorted out reasonably quickly. I gave four, not five stars because we felt the place was dated. The pictures on the website show this place to look amazing with a lot of light, which it has. But there are some things in the apartment that need to be fixed. For example, a bathroom tile fell off the wall on to my child's toe. In the master bedroom there is a hole or open vent in the wall which needs to be covered. Overall a great stay and thank you to the owners.

A very nice, spacious and cosy flat for the whole family!

  • 4 of 5

Tom and Saphira were very nice hosts, we found everything exactly as described and the flat is equipped with lots of heaters so it is nice and warm even in mid-winter! The neighbourhood is full of shops and places to eat and it is only a very short walk to the next tube station. Definitely can recommend staying here!

Zionsville, IN

Loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was great for our family of four during our stay in London. The apartment was just as described, spacious, and had everything we needed. The travel guides and restaurant/shopping suggestions were much appreciated. It was on a quiet, residential street which was helpful when sleeping with the windows open. Saphira and Tom always communicated promptly and check in/out was easy. It was close to both Gloucester Rd and South Kensington tube stations, although we walked to many sites. We enjoyed walking and biking at nearby Kensington Park several times. There are many restaurants close by which was a plus for watching the Euro Cup with other fans. We would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone staying in London.

Good location in London SW

  • 4 of 5

As promised. One nice bedroom, and one smaller. Good bathroom, kitchen and living area, with most of what it takes. Stairs make for good cardiac workout. Excellently served by public transport, and good food, wine and dining options all around. As is usual, a converted town house. No issues there; just be considerate of the neighbours. And the neighbours should be considerate of the guests!

Excellent home base for our holiday wanderings

  • 5 of 5

The flat worked very well for our family of 5. We used the comfortable air mattress as a 4th bed so that each child could sleep by him/her self. The nearest tube station is about a 7-10min walk away and we made liberal use of our Oyster cards to get around the city. Museums are walking distance as is Harrod's and shopping (longer walk, but doable). There is a grocery right next to the tube stop, so we saved some money by eating a meal a day in the flat. Thanks, Tom and Saphira!
