Chelsea Apartment Rental Photos and Description

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.

Beautiful apartment, great location.

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was very comfortable, spacious, clean and everything was as described. Public transportation was close by and everything needed was in walking distance. The washer/ dryer was a light duty machine. The view was great, especially at night. The property management was very supportive.

A London gem!!!

  • 5 of 5

A friend and I stayed for 11 days and nights in this gem of a flat. I rarely use superlatives but in this case they are entirely merited. The stay was simply wonderful. The flat is in a smashing location (quiet street with a lovely view of the river Thames and also just a few minutes walk to all the trendiness, shops, and eateries on King's Road, buses, and the Sloane Square tube stop) and is beautifully appointed (from quality appliances and wi-if to linens and toiletries and everything in-between)! We knew that there is no air-conditioning and were happy to have the fan provided per our request. Plus, the fresh flowers, fruit, wine, and chocolates made for a very special welcome. As did Diana and Jose's attentive responsiveness at all times. Thank you so much. We would love to return and will also let friends know of this delightful London gem.

Had Everything we Needed

  • 5 of 5

The Chelsea flat was perfect for my son and me during our week long Londin visit. The amenities were lovely and Jose went above and beyond to orient us and he even coordinated our car back to Heathrow.

Sloane Square was the perfect place to hang out and explore--with many shops and restaurants -- we even stumbled on the Saturday market, which I highly recommend, or to use as jumping off place for greater London. When tired, a taxi from Tube stop was welcomed and convenient.

Charming and Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

The Flat was quite lovely. Small and compact but with an updated charm that welcomed you at the end of each day. Jose was friendly, informative, and quite helpful in answering questions of not only the Flat, but of our surroundings. Jose even provided us suggested transportation back to Heathrow on our last day. The amenities were stellar! From the soaps provided to the cooking range, the beautiful drapery and decor! Of course visiting your wonderful city for only three days kept us on the go....but if inclement weather had kept us indoors...we could have been quite happy viewing the River Thames! Thank you! I most certainly would recommend your accommodation to family and friends with the understanding that the Underground is a 15 minute walk.

Lovely apartment in Great Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I spent 4 nights here on our 3rd trip to London. We love Chelsea and the Sloane Square area. Tons of shops, restaurants and easy tube access. The apartment is beautifully decorated and actually nicer than the pictures. It is small but cozy and well laid out. Really nice bathroom, for our fellow Americans who find this hard to find in Europe. The apartment is well equipped with everything you will need plus lots of extra touches that you don't find in most vacation rentals. Jose is so nice & really helpful. It is quiet and has great view of the Thames. Will definitely stay here again on our next trip to London.

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.
