Rafael's apartment is hard to beat.

  • 5 of 5

We expected our stay at Rafael's apartment to be a great one based on the very good reviews obtained from other guests, but I must add that our expectations were exceeded mostly by the attention to detail shown by the owner. Everything from an early arrival to recommendations on every single aspect of our visit was provided, and to tell the truth as first timers in the holiday rentals market, we couldn't be more grateful for the awesome and easy experience provided...Deb and Phill

Great position

  • 4 of 5

This apartment suited us very well, being so close to the Tube, Hyde Park and easy to get to the city.

Thanks to Rafael and Dolly, there were no problems with arrival and the apartment was ready early for us.

Thank you Rafael and Dolly.

The flat is well-appointed, accurately described, and very convenient for touring London

  • 5 of 5

The Princess Court flat is a great option for a stay in London. While the flat lacks a few things (a fan to help circulate cooler outside air would be a nice feature in the warm months) it does not detract from the overall 5-star rating - especially for the price point. Rafael and his assistant were great in allowing us to drop off our bags prior to check-in and pick them up after check-out, saving us the need to cart them around more than necessary. The flat was clean upon arrival and appeared to be relatively well-maintained. All amenities provided were accurate. The description of the location is very accurate, incredibly close to two tube stops with one servicing two different lines. The location allowed us to use the tube and walk to everywhere we went during our stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much Graham for your feedback on my apartment and your stay with us. Whilst the building regulations does not allow installation of any devices that might alter our facade, such as airconditioned equipment, I would like to mention that a portable air con tower is provided in the apartment for the not so likely ( although always welcome ) warmer days...I am glad to learnt that not having found it will not deter you from coming back, as it has been a pleasure to assist you with your accommodation arrangements and I look forward to welcoming you again soonest. Regards, Rafael

Recommended by relatives...

  • 5 of 5

Rafael's apartments has been recommended to us by relatives staying at another of his properties last Autumn. We enjoyed a peaceful stay and were extremely satisfied with the choice, the location is unbeatable as other reviews point out and the services provided outstanding, including accommodating ( at no extra cost ) our very early arrival... much appreciated when you travel with children. The property was very clean, well equipped, super quiet and comfortable for us. All in all a very good experience. Gunn G.

Mixed feelings...

  • 3 of 5

We have mixed feelings about this apartment.

First the positive points…

The apartment was very well located between 2 convenient underground stations (Bayswater and Queensway) with lots of restaurants, shops and supermarkets.

Rafael, the owner, gave us plenty of information regarding directions to the apartment, restaurants, supermarkets, public transport...

Now the negative points…

The apartment didn’t have any double glazing and was quite noisy; we could hear a lot of noise coming from outside and also from the neighbour on the upper floor, who –every other day– was sliding furniture in his apartment at 3 am!

The main bed was comfortable, but the pull-out bed in the living room wasn’t at all! It kept on falling apart.

The blinds in the bedroom and living room weren’t wide enough, so we were systematically waken up by daylight in the early morning.

The kitchen was well equipped, but its lay-out wasn't very practical.

The bathroom had no window and no ventilation…

Besides, Dolly shouldn’t be described as Rafael’s assistant; she was a cleaner who simply opened the door and gave us the keys; her level of English wasn't good enough to be of any use as an assistant.

The apartment is quite worn out, with poor finishing; the pictures seen on the net must have been taken when the apartment was brand new and do not reflect the apartment as it is now.

Owner's Response: Thank you for reviewing your stay in my apartment, Martine. I must admit that, whilst I am glad to learn that its location and the customer service provided have met your expectations, I am also sorry to learn about the dissapointment caused by issues, that although I will not question, have NEVER before been mentioned by other guests (?) Having said that, I would openly dispute and question your last comment, by highlighting that the 76 Five Stars reviews achieved by this apartment, ( 15 of them in the last six months ), are a clear indicator that our pictures gallery reflect the property as it is NOW. Regards, Rafael.

Our terrific location, only yards away from Hyde Park will ensure that you make the most of your trip to London whilst enjoying the abundance of shops and restaurants that the cosmopolitan Queensway neighbourhood has to offer.

Atractions like Portobello Market, Royal Albert Hall, and Victoria & Albert, Science and Natural History museums amongst others are all within walking distance from the property via a pleasant stroll through Hyde Park, where you may also visit Kensington Palace, residence in life of the late Princess Diana of Wales.

Having two undergrounds stations ( Queensway and Bayswater) on the doorstep will facilitate the access to all other atractions via a maximum 10 minutes tube ride.
