An outstanding value in South Kensington

  • 5 of 5

It would be difficult to overstate how much I enjoyed staying here for a week in October of 2017, and how great a value this place is.

First of all, the location near the Underground at South Kensington is excellent. You are on the western side of the city closest to Heathrow. It is approximately 50 minutes on the tube from Heathrow to South Kensington.

The flat is exactly as you see it in the pictures Jackie has provided. It is quite small - just a studio - but it is perfect for a single traveler. A couple could make it work if they were spending most of their time out and about. The kitchen is fully equipped.

Internet access is provided with the flat at no cost.

A note to travelers from the USA (I am one): it is important to realize that most public places in London, including apartment buildings, are not air conditioned. Additionally, by late October, the heat in almost all public places is on (and extremely warm), even though the temperature never got below the mid 50's (Fahrenheit) while I was there. However, it was never an issue in the flat. I never turned on the radiator and kept the windows open during my entire stay. Also, Jackie provides an oscillating fan that kept the place cool and comfortable.

Finally, I want to say a few kind words about Jackie. From the time I initially booked the place until I departed, she was extremely responsive to questions that I had and took care of any issues that arose quickly and efficiently. What a pleasure to work with her!

I can say without a doubt that I will be looking to book this place again upon my next solo journey to London. For the price, the location, the comfort of the flat, and the wonderful owner, it simply can't be beat.

Great apartment, ideal location- good value all round!

  • 4 of 5

Jackie's apartment is in a lovely part of London, close to transport links and walking distance to many top London spots.

Although small, this did not bother us at all, since we were barely in the apartment, except for sleeping , preparing breakfast and recovering after hectic days,

Despite being compact the apartment has everything you need for a comfortable stay, plenty of hot water, well set up kitchen and comfortable bed.

We always felt safe, both in the apartment complex and in the area surrounding the complex.

Transport from Heathrow is easy. Take the Piccadilly line, alight at south Kensington, walk 5 minutes and you're there!

The apartment faces the interior courtyard so noise is not an issue, however in summer it may mean the apartment could be a little warm.

Reception desk was helpful.

Would stay there again i a heartbeat!!

Great Value/Prime Location

  • 5 of 5

Clean, nicely furnished studio apartment with well equipped kitchen and bathroom with good shower. Location is ideal with a five minute walk to South Kensington tube station or ten minute walk to Sloane Square tube or Harrods. Many restaurants and high end boutiques in the vicinity as well as a Sainsburys within half a block. Fantastic value given central location and quality of the amenities. Will definitely return!

My wife and I spent 11 days here and for that length of time the flat was a little small. It would have been nice to have something other than the table to put things on or sit at. Other than that this studio flat is perfect. It was clean and linens and towels were supplied. Internet (wi-fi) and TV service were fine. The kitchen was well appointed and we made breakfast every morning. The owner was very responsive and we were very happy with the service. Secure building with front desk service which was really nice. We needed a taxi one morning and they took care of everything for us. There is a Grocery, Drug store, Laundry (Dry Cleaner) and Starbucks half a block away. There is every type of restaurant available within a 10 minute walk. There are two tube stations also within a 10 minute walk. The South Kensington station is a main line hub and you can get to just about anything in London from this station. All in all it was very pleasant experience and we would definitely use this flat again.

Great central London location with good facilities

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I regularly stay at Jackie's apartment on the 3rd floor given its great location, safe environment, transport connections and though small, a comfortable apartment.

For us having a good supermarket right next door is a good bonus plus the apartment facilities which provides everything we need for a short stay.

Jackie response to bookings and requests is always prompt and efficient and we certainly recommend the studio as a pleasant retreat for a short stay in central London.

Map

Car: not necessary

Located right in the centre of this very fashionable and upmarket part of town, you will find everything close at hand. Public transport and taxis are readily available right outside the flat but you will find you are in walking distance of lots of London's very best attractions! The apartment is very easily accessible from both Heathrow and Gatwick airports by train or tube. There is a direct tube line from Heathrow to South Kensington, about 5 minutes walk from the flat. Taxis are always available at both airports. Victoria station is just 10 minutes away.
