About the property

Private terrace, one bedroom flat in Kensington, central London

Wonderfully central apartment located in one of the best parts of London, minutes away from museums and shops in South Kensington.

This lovely flat includes a very modern layout, exquisite terrace and an inviting reception area. Ideally for a single guest or a couple, it has a very comfortable double bed. No more than 2 guests sleeping at any one time.

Within a few minutes from shops, pubs, tubes and buses.

Also great for shopping and sites viewing, although the surroundings are quiet and peaceful.

Immaculately presented flat, perfect location near metro and many bus routes. Within 5 minutes bus from museums, many shops and restaurants nearby.

The flat is very comfortable, modern and has a roof top garden terrace.

EXTREMELY CONVENIENT - 1 bedroom roof top flat. The flat is located in Earls Court on very quiet one way street, 4 minute walk to tube station and on both Piccadilly Line and District Line.

The flat is also VERY CONVENIENT for the Olympia Convention Centres.

There is a very comfortable full size bed with all linen.

There is lots of light in the flat and a fully functional kitchen with plates, pots, and pans ect.

Very clean and well taken care of.

The bathroom is modern and functional.

High speed internet, LG LED TV, clothes washer/dryer, kettle, ect.

All linen included.

The best thing about this flat is truly the location. It is close to the tube but you would never know it.

Both Piccadilly and District Line tube lines.

You can be in Leicester Square in 15 minutes.

Within South Kensington and Chelsea, 5 minutes from Knightsbrig

Bright, well equipped and conveniently located apartment from which to explore London.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this bright rooftop apartment with its landscaped terrace. Located just two and a half blocks from the tube so you can easily explore London. The kitchen is well equipped and Federica was responsive to our needs.

Pleasant Flat-Nice Location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this flat due to the location which was close to where our daughter was living. It is minutes from the tube and close to other bus links. The flat was as described and it suited our needs well. Certainly within walking distance of many museums, Hyde Park, Royal Albert Hall and others. As indicated, it is a rooftop location. Well worth considering if you don't need to be downtown London.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

The flat is in a perfect location. Minutes from Earl's court station, walking distance to museums, Kensington Palace, Portobello road. Federica answered any questions we had instantly. The flat is very clean & has everything you need. We even ate outside on the terrace one day. Would definitely stay here again.

Thanks Federica

Lovely flat, excellent host

  • 5 of 5

The flat is comfortable, warm, and light-filled, on a quiet street close to the Earl's Court tube stop and convenient to shops (including the indispensable Oddbins!). Nice deep bathtub in which to soak away the aches of a long day's walking.

While the kitchenette isn't suitable for serious cooking, it's perfectly fine for putting together simple meals (so you can splurge on London's terrific restaurants for supper). The owner is extraordinarily kind and considerate, really a pleasure to let from. If you're solo or a couple, this is an excellent choice.

Charming Flat

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week here. The location is good, quite safe, and close to transport. Comfortable walk to the museums. Small but very functional kitchen, we cooked daily. Really enjoyed our stay!

You’re ideally placed for London’s great museums, or, if the weather’s too lovely for a day indoors, take a boat out on the Serpentine in nearby Hyde Park. Kensington High Street’s a paradise of high-end boutiques and enticing restaurants, and there’s even a multi screen cinema. Or zoom into town, the tube from Earl’s Court to Piccadilly Circus takes just twelve minutes.

A tranquil area, Earls Court is magnificently close to museums in Kensington and within 15 bus ride from Piccadilly Circus.

The famous Troubadour has hosted names like Bob Dylan, Elvis Costello and more recently Adele, a truly emblematic local bar with live music and full of character.

Perhaps we can use two of its most famous past inhabitants to personify the dual aspects of this area – Diana, Princess of Wales and Freddie Mercury. Diana, representative of the established money and prestigious mansions, started her royal romance from her single-girl flat here, while Freddie Mercury, symbolising the outsider in search of freedom and a better life, ended his long career (but too-short life) on Logan Place.

If you enjoy “prohibition-style” bar, do visit The Evans & Peel Detective Agency; Ping, which serves up pizza and table-tennis to a rowdy crowd till 2am; and the latest gastronomic jewel in London’s west side, Le Garnier.

The nearby Brompton Cemetery is a busy place, with beautiful green pathways and many locals taking their daily walk.
