Comfortable flat in a great location!!
This lovely flat was well appointed, very clean and had a feel of home. The owner, Mia, is an exceptional host, ensuring we were properly welcomed. She answered our many questions quickly and thoroughly, going to far as to help us find a pub to watch an American football playoff game (GO EAGLES!!).
The location is perfect, a short walk from two Underground stations and convenient to many locations across London. There a local bakery, food store and wine shop right around the corner. It’s located in a quiet residential neighborhood. We hardly heard anything from outside and felt comfortable walking around after dark.
If you’re looking for a couples retreat for a trip to London, this is it!!
Great location. Safe neighborhood. Cute.
Pretty much exactly as owner described. Quiet, even though head of bed is next to ground floor window at street level. Nice that Mia puts a pint of fresh milk in fridge for those late night arrivals. Could have used a small bar of soap in washroom or kitchen as owner only provided one bottle of liquid antiseptic soap which is not appropriate for face or body. Please note that there is a washer but no dryer and no washer soap in unit. There were only eight paper towels left in the roll in the kitchen but provided towels for drying. Very, very small shower area. If you are careful you don’t hit your head above the bath. Great price though and very clean and tidy.
This studio is just what you need! It is clean and secure. The bed is comfortable, the water is hot and the pressure is good; the kitchen has everything you need to make a basic meal and the clothes washer came in very handy. Mia is a great HomeAway hostess! She checked in on us a couple times especially since the weather warmed up and arranged to bring us a fan and to make sure we had everything we needed. Mia also worked with us due to our split arrangements (2 different bookings 4 days apart) and that made our trip that much more enjoyable. When we returned the second time, we felt like we were returning home.
The Baron's Court Underground is less than a 5 minute walk from the studio. There are restaurants nearby, as well as shops that provide meat, veggies, baked goods, wine, etc. Be sure you try Best Mangal for Turkish food (kebabs, etc.) and Casa Bardotti Pizzeria (great pasta and wine! We didn't try the pizza but heard it was good). C'est Ici is a wonderful coffee, and sandwich shop, patisserie and more. These small shops in a non-tourist area truly give you the feel of what it is to live in London.
We will definitely stay here again when we go to London, and highly recommend Mia's flat and location.
It was ok.
I liked the studio, although dark, due to curtains, as it is a ground floor with bed on main window, so everybody could see inside if curtains were not drawn. As it was very cold the electricity went down, so probably needs more power, but very well equipped. Chose the wrong place as it was quite far from city centre although had a tube staion nearby.
I’m a bit confused, you said you liked the studio, then you said you should not have booked it.
Firstly I met you at the underground, to help you with your bags as you said you had a bad back, we walked to the studio together. I let you check in early and I let you check out late and I answered all your what’s app messages.
You said the studio was dark but kept the curtains closed. There is frosted glass and no- one can see in, also the road is a quiet residential road. There are 5 lights in the main room plus 2 lights under the cupboards in the kitchen area ,so 7 in total .
We discussed the heating and it was left on for 24 hours a day.
The heating is GAS not electric.
In England we have a trip switch for the electric , this means if you plug too many gadgets, hair dryers, oven , washing machine, toaster etc on at the same time, the safety switch turns it off, this tells you, you are using too many appliances at one time. It has NEVER happened before. I have a qualified electrician come once a year to test the electrics.
The studio is very close to the underground, it is in Zone 2, it’s one stop on the Piccadilly line to zone 1 .
I say all this in the description.
You told me you got a cab, one night and it was very expensive, and was the underground safe as you didn’t want to pay for the cab again , I assured you the underground had cameras and is very safe.
Most people that stay at the studio take the underground.
Maybe you should book more central, next time costing much more ££££££.

Queens Club - the famous tennis club, is only meters away from the apartment, perfect for the LTA Finals at Queens. Barons Court is a well heeled residential area of West London, with tube links into Central London only taking ten to twenty minutes depending on where you want to go. Many people mistakenly believe that name Barons Court is inspired by Earls Court to the east and the association of the area in the early 19th century with the Margrave of Brandenburg-Ansbach (died 1806) and his English wife Elizabeth (the Margravine, the widow of the 6th Baron Craven). They had a home at Brandenburg House immediately to the west of the site of Charing Cross Hospital. The Margravine died in 1828 and is commemorated by a number of roads in the area (Margravine Road and Margravine Gardens) and the Margrave possibly by Barons Court Road although the approximate equivalent rank in the British peerage to Margrave is a Marquess. The name Barons Court is probably inspired by the Baronscourt estate in Ireland, where Sir William Palliser, who built the entire area, had connections. As well as Palliser Road itself, all the roads in the area are named after members of his family. The platforms at Barons Court. Perham Road - his wife Charleville Road - his cousins, the Earls of Charleville Gledstanes Road - his mother Barton Road - his grandmother Challoner Street - his great-grandmother Fairholme Road - his married sister Vereker Road - his married aunt, wife of Viscount Gort Comeragh Road - after the family estate in Ireland Castletown Road - after the Baronets Pallisers' estate in Ireland Sir William's brother, John Palliser (the explorer) inherited the Comeragh estate in County Waterford. Sir William did not have an Irish estate of his own. Instead, he tried to develop this London estate. He died very suddenly on 4 February 1882, and the lawyers had a field day, selling everything off, including the 11 acres (45,000 m2) which would become the Queen's Club. Sir William was heavily in debt, though if he had not died so suddenly and had managed to sell many of the houses he could have been a wealthy man. As it was, the family ended up with nothing.
