Chelsea: exceptional 1BR w/views of the River Thames & Battersea Park

Bedrooms 1
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom apartment with stunning views of the Thames and Battersea

1 bedroom flat with stunning views of the river Thames and Battersea Park from both the living room and bedroom. In the entrance hall you’ll notice the wooden panelled walls and hanging chandelier which set the sophisticated tone for the rest of the home. Step into the sitting room and feel your toes against the plush, red rug which lies before the large double sofa (it folds into a sofa bed for guests). Recline and admire the rose bouquet which sits on the fireplace, or the red brocade curtain drapes. Find the lever along the wood panelled wall until it slides to reveal a hidden kitchen, complete with super-slick chrome fixtures and modern appliances. Head into the master bedroom where a muted, teal wallpaper will lull you into a sense of calm. Relax on the king size bed beside the stylish, industrial radiator, and watch the wall-mounted television, or pamper yourself before the floor-ceiling mirrors. Next door in the brand new shower room, enjoy a luxurious power-shower while a fluffy towel heats on the shiny chrome rack.

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I stayed in this charming, and perfectly appointed flat for 5 days and we could not have been more happy there. It is so close to the tube (a short 15 minute walk), and loads of shopping and restaurants on King Street. Jose met us, took our bags up in the lift, and gave us the ABC's of the flat. He was wonderful. The location is so perfect, right on the Thames. If you are in London and are looking for a perfect place, this is it.

Comfortable and central

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is comfortable and central. Close to transport and restaurants. The view of the river was restful. Wi-fi was not working during our stay but that was not the fault of the owner.

Charming, perfect for my daughter and I for a week

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I had an amazing week in this absolutely beautiful, perfectly appointed apartment. It was fantastic to open up the windows and enjoy morning coffee with the Thames just right in front of us. Jose greeted us, showed us everything, and was just sweet. Location was perfect. A few blocks behind us- loads of great shops and eateries. Bus connections were extremely close, and we never waited more than five minutes to get to any part of the city. The apartment is perfect for a couple, or a couple with 1-2 smaller children. It may be a bit tight for two couples, but could work if you're really good friends! Overall, we would highly recommend the Chelsea apartment, and wouldn't hesitate to reserve again on our next visit! Thank you for your hospitality, Jose & Claudia!

Nice little place in a great neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This apartment may be relatively small, but it's well put together. Good design and amenities stocked make it a great choice for a worry-free stay in London. Great view to the park, only if it was a little bit further away from the traffic noise, would have made it ideal. All in all, we liked it and will stay again if travel take us back to London.

Exceptional property and location

  • 5 of 5

This is an exceptional property. Every detail of this apartment is outstanding and the hospitality is top notch. The owners provide a bouquet of fresh flowers, a bottle of wine, a bowl of very nice fruit, a box of truffles, cereal, coffees and teas. The bathroom is also stocked with soap, shampoo and lotion. It is very comfortable and helpful to have these things provided. The apartment is small but is great for a single or a couple.

The location is also great. The view from the living room is of the Thames and Battersea Park. It is within a couple of blocks of a number of bus stops. Kings Road is about 6 blocks away. Chelsea is a beautiful neighborhood that is easy and safe to walk through.

The correspondence with the management team was great. They were very accommodating to our request for late check out. They also did a great job of welcoming us to the apartment and showing us how everything worked.

We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again or recommend it to friends. That is the highest praise we can give.

Exceptional in Every Way!

  • 5 of 5

Light, bright with a pretty view of the Thames! I would buy this apartment if I could. We were supremely comfortable for the week we were here. The decor is smart and the space planning is excellent. I think it’s even nicer than portrayed in the photos. We were greeted by Jose (who was wonderful) and appreciated the fresh flowers, bottle of wine, Evian and candies. Molton Brown toiletries were in the bath. We loved the location - it was a residential neighborhood and not teeming with tourists. However it was 10 minutes from busy Kings Road and about 15 from Sloan Square. We found a wonderful gastro pub very nearby and a very reasonably priced Gordon Ramsay restaurant. I have mobility issues so for places further than 6 blocks or so, I had to use Uber. All of the fares were very reasonable - nothing was far. Would I come back here again? In a heartbeat!

Car: not necessary

Traditionally a haunt for the London bohemia, Chelsea is now one of the city’s most affluent areas, with wide, elegant boulevards of period properties. Take a trip to King’s Road and Sloane Square and Avenue, the crown jewel of London haute-couture. In times past it was also a haven to artists, scientists, and many other influential people.

Chelsea was originally known as the “village of palaces” in the 17th Century, the only residents being those in palatial manor houses. Residents included Henry VIII, Sir Thomas More, Elizabeth I, the Duke of Monmouth and the Duke of Beaufort.

On Embankment Gardens’ doorstep you’ll of course find the upscale Chelsea Embankment, with its wide view of the Thames and the elegant Ranelagh Gardens. Further north, explore the shopping delights of King’s Road, and the world famous museums of South Kensington. Central London is accessible in just 20 minutes via the nearby Sloane Square underground station.
