Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom and Sleeps 2 (Room for Cot) and also a large sofa for possible extras

High-Spec one bedroom flat in the heart of Notting Hill Gate in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. Fast Wi-Fi and European Super King-Size Bed. Natural stone bathroom with a bath tub and shower. Natural hardwood floors through out the flat. Dimmer switches in all the rooms, to create whatever mood you see fit. There's a lift/elevator in the building, so you get to enjoy the benefits of being on the top floor, with out having to climb four floors.

Water pressure is mentioned in a few reviews. Since these were posted i’ve had a pump fitted, which has sorted the problem.

Full equipped kitchen, with everything you would need to cook yourself even the most elaborate meal. There's a Nespresso machine, with coffee provided for those, who like me wake up in the throws of caffeine withdrawal!

Notting Hill Gate tube station is less than 3 minutes walk away (10 mins to Oxford or Bond St on the tube) and there are numerous buses nearby that will take you into the West End as well.

Perfectly placed to sample the restaurants of Kensington, Notting Hill and Westbourne Grove. Just tell me what type of cuisine you like, and i'll give you the best suggestions I can think of.

Kensington Palace and Hyde Park are only about 5 minutes walk from the flat. The London flagship Whole Foods store is a 10 minute walk away on Kensington High Street. worth it!

Portobello Rd market is a 5 - 10 minute walk from the flat. Perfect for those of you who like hunting around for strange items.

Large Plasma Screen TV, with Netflix available. Access to normal UK freeview, with all the BBC channels. White towels and linen are freshly washed for you're arrival. You can use everything in the flat, as this is purely a rental, I never live here.

Ben and his flat enhanced our visit to London.

  • 4 of 5

The location was very good. Just at the NW corner of Hyde Park, near 2 underground lines and convenient to bus lines. Two breakfast places were within walking distance and Ben provided a list of food markets and restaurants in the neighborhood. The lift made the trip to the flat on the top floor of the building a breeze. We had a light switch go out and Ben had it repaired in the afternoon. Our one major complaint was the water pressure was almost non-existent in the shower and kitchen. That also happened in the flat where we stayed last year; maybe it's is a London thing? There was also no electric outlet in the bathroom for the hairdryer. Other than that, it was delightful.

Owner's Response: Since this review was posted I have had an electric pump fitted to the incoming mains. The pressure is now up to scratch. You weren’t previously allowed to fit these type of pumps, but legislation has recently been changed to allow them.

The PERFECT Holiday!

  • 5 of 5

For 10 years my husband and I wanted to come to London for Christmas. Originally we were thinking of a small cottage outside of London. When we finally got a chance to book our holiday we decided we wanted to stay in London. We couldn't have ended up in a more perfect place. The kitchen was well equipped, the flat spacious and accommodating, the views out of the window in the bedroom were perfect for seeing the tops of the homes and the snow on the roofs. We were easy walking distance to shops and restaurants. While a bit longer walk, we still were able to walk to Harrods and all the major shops and the winter wonderland in Hyde Park. It was perfect and Ben was wonderful to work with. It truly was a great spot!

Comfortable and excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this flat for two weeks in November and found it worked well. A five minute walk from the Notting Hill Gate tube station and a lift to the flat is welcome after a day of sightseeing. For two people it's a pretty spacious apartment. Lots of towels provided and good closet space in the bedroom. The heating system works well. Really can't beat the location

Bright and clean, this flat really has it all. High tech kitchen, washer-dryer combo, comfortable bed and surprisingly quiet for a good night's sleep. Being a runner, it is perfectly situated near Kensington and Hyde Park. Portabello Market is a stone's throw away and the Underground is a 5 minute walk. We've stayed in London many times over the years and this was our best.

Well equiped apartment in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in this apartment for 4 nights and had a very pleasant stay. The kitchen is a full size and well equiped with all you need even if you want to have a meal at night. It also has a pod coffee machine for that morning coffee and a traveller's favourite a combined washer/dryer. The bedroom is seperate from the rest of the apartment and has a very comfortable bed and is very quiet for a good nights sleep. The living area has a comfortable couch and a wide screen TV with free to air TV and also Netflix if you want to stay in one night. The apartment is very safe and secure in an attractive area and close to good restaurants and pubs and the Notting Hill tube station accessing three lines which is very convient to travel around London. Ben met us at the apartment and helpfully showed us how everything operated, gave recommendations for pubs and restaurants and was easily accessable by e-mail.

We would be more than happy to stay here again on a return to London.

Highly recommended.

Just across the street from Kensington Palace Gardens and Hyde Park, definitely the two most beautiful London Parks. Great Shopping, Cafes and stunningly individual Shops on Portobello rd and Westbourne Grove (both 5 mins away). Very short trip by bus or tube into the West End (Bond St, Regents St and Oxford St) where any shopping needs can be met. Whole Foods Flagship in Kensington is also only 10 minutes walk away.

I could list all of the museums that it is worth visiting, but the list is endless. However if you book, i'll give you all the information you could need.
