Great accommodation in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Very clean.

True to description. Very well equipped. Comfy beds. Lovely linens.

Massimo is excellent and very responsive.

No complaints at all. It's very spacious as far as London goes.

Nice and quiet area, necessary after hustle and bustle of London.

Would rent again in a flash and would recommend to friends and family.

Traditional apartment in South Kensington

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a week in late September. It's a lovely apartment in a beautiful building. Very secure and very well taken care of. We were quite comfortable and the apartment is in a terrific location for everything that London has to offer. It's about a half mile to either Gloucester Road or South Kensington tube stations. Very close to several grocery stores and pubs and restaurants. The apartment is filled with photos of the family who owns it and I found myself fascinated with the photo history of this lovely family. It's very roomy and light filled. Mr. Malavasi was attentive to a few concerns we had and mailed back two pieces of clothing I had left behind in a very timely manner. I highly recommend this beautiful and comfortable apartment for a stay in London.

Cute and comfortable place in a great neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Massimo's place in a charming part of South Kensington was perfect for our stay. It was quite, comfortable, and made us feel like a local while we were there. He was also a very communicative host. Recommended!

Nice Place

  • 5 of 5

I would definitely recommend this property. Location is great, in quiet neighborhood, but only 10 min from the tube, with small bar/shopping area around the tube stop. Also has plenty of space. Only problem is the showerhead in the blue bathroom is very loose, so you have to hold it while showering
