Why London Perfect chose Abingdon
The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea is one of the loveliest and most sought-after areas in central London. Many Londoners would dream of living in this borough, which is home to some of the most famous neighborhoods in London – Kensington, South Kensington, Notting Hill, Belgravia, Knightsbridge, Earl’s Court and Chelsea. These areas exude London charm with their rows of Victorian homes, peaceful garden squares and easy access to the beautiful Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park. Visit world-class museums in South Kensington, stroll along the Thames in Chelsea, find treasures along the Portobello Road Antiques Market in Notting Hill, shop the biggest names in fashion in Knightsbridge, imagine the royal life at Kensington Palace or spend a leisurely afternoon in Kensington Gardens. With some of the best shopping spots in London, classic pubs and great restaurants, you’ll enjoy all the best of the London lifestyle in Kensington and Chelsea. Reach all the top sites in London quickly and easily on the London Underground or by simply hopping on one of the classic double-decker London buses. We fell in love with this charming area of London, and we think you will, too!

The Russell flat has a great location in Kensington and near the Earl's Court tube station. It's a quiet and light flat, well equipped. We had a very pleasant stay there. The neighborhood contains several nice pubs and other restaurants. We particularly recommend The Abingdon.
Thanks for posing your review. Very helpful to those who are searching for a nice place.

Had a terrific trip with my family in London and one week was not enough time to do everything. London Perfect staff very helpful and Lushi's car service was very reliable. If you consider this apartment do know it is very noisy. It is in a large apartment building with residents that are up all night and very loud. Otherwise good location to tube (recommend Earl's Court stop) and to museums.
Thanks for posting! Reviews do help the ones who are searching for a nice place to stay.

Thank you for posting your review. It is helpful to others who are looking.
The Russell flat on Cromwell Road was a lovely place from which to start and finish our days. The flat was clean and neat and had all the necessary items for a comfortable stay. It was easy walking distance to the Earls Court tube station or High Street Kensington tube station. The Sainsburys grocery store was very close as well. The staff couldn't have been more helpful throughout our stay. We will definitely chose London Perfect again!

We appreciated the Russell apartment. It was quiet, nice and functional. Perhaps a lack of space to put things away in the bedrooms. We had not discovered at first that there was space in the big cupboard of the living-room. A well-equipped kitchen. The location was very convenient with easy access to main lines at Earl's Court, to lots of little restaurants and to Sainsbury's! We all loved our week's stay there.
Highly recommend the Russell!!
We stayed at the London Perfect Russell apartment with our 2 teenagers (16 and 14) over the Christmas holiday, December 2014 and had a great time! From the moment we arrived we were well taken care of by London Perfect who met us at the apartment and explained everything about the place and the area - we had a wonderful stay! The apartment has everything you could possibly want from high speed internet to cooking supplies and utensils if you want them (we cooked a full Christmas dinner!) - also the building felt very safe and secure and very quiet. Everything at the apartment was in top working order and it was nice to have a washer/dryer. The location is PERFECT and began to feel like home after a few days - just minutes from High Street Kensington shops, groceries and restaurants you couldn't ask for a better location. We used the Earl's Court tube stop which was only a 5 minute walk.
We would highly recommend the Russell and hope to visit again someday!
Nice to her that you enjoyed preparing Christmas dinner 'at home' in your own kitchen! That had to be fun. Washers and dryers are always good to have...
The Russell vacation rental is located in South Kensington, near Museum Row and fabulous London shopping along Kensington High Street. You are walking distance to Kensington Palace, Kensington Gardens, loads of shops, restaurants, cafés and public transport.
