Welcome to my home! Located in London's most iconic boroughs of Chelsea and Kensington, this flat is every visitors' dream destination.
Located in a modern block only 2 mins walk away from Gloucester Road, the apartment is a spacious 1 bedroom that comfortably sleeps four. One of the best parts of the flat is the lovely building it is located in. There is an elevator which means you won't be dragging your luggage up the stairs.
The pictures are being updated and I have added a sofabed instead of the lounge chair that you can see in the pictures. Even though you are in central London, the flat itself is fairly quiet making for a restful stay.
Clean and fresh sheets are provided for all my guests. Bathroom comes with fluffy white towels, shampoo and shower gel. Ladies there is also a hair dryer!
The kitchen is fully equipped with all the mod cons and you won't lack anything if you want to cook a quick meal. I have put in some basic condiments to get you started. Ample tea, coffee and sugar is provided so enjoy the cuppa :)
Baby cot and high chair can be provided up on request.
The entire apartment is available to the guests.
Interaction with Guests
Hostmakers will help me look after my guests. I will of course be available if you have any questions.
Being situated in the centre of Kensington and Chelsea, there is no shortage of things to do and see all within walking distance. Enjoy strolling around some of the richest architecture in the capital and discover the hidden, cobble stoned pastel painted mews streets nestled in amongst the grand Georgian terraces, or stop for peaceful breaks in the many square gardens and parks that make the area so unique. For the fashion conscious, hit the shops around neighbouring Knightsbridge just a leisurely 20-minute walk away where there's plenty of choice to suit the most high end or high street of budgets including the world famous Harrods and Harvey Nichols department stores. If antiques are more up your street, head to Kensington Church Street for its famous fine art and antique shops and barter yourself a real piece of history.
Fancy a bit of peace and quiet? Hyde Park is only a 15-minute walk up the road so go for a stroll (or join the runners for the more ambitious!) and get lost amongst the Serpentine Gallery, Kensington Palace and the Albert memorial without forgetting to stop by the famous Royal Albert Hall on your way home. For those who don't fancy being on your feet, rent some Boris Bikes within the park and follow the cycle route to make sure you don't miss a thing.
If hustle and bustle is more of your thing, head over to South Kensington for its trendy cafes, book shops and endless restaurants. In this area you'll find some of the capital's most popular museums, including the Science Museum and the Natural History Museum that are both sure to delight the kids as well as the big kids amongst you! Art and design lovers will adore the Royal Victoria & Albert museum next door. Once you've finished moseying through the themed rooms housing an eclectic mixture of objects and artefacts sure to please every interest, from British fashion through to ancient Middle Eastern furniture, take a break in the incredibly ornate cafe with a traditional English tea and scones complete with clotted cream and jam.
We are spoilt for choice for eating out but our local recommendations would be Bombay Brasserie which is an upmarket Indian on Courtfield Road - pricey but fantastic! Or if you love meat try Macellaio, an authentic Italian restaurant on Brompton Road an 8 minute walk away. Try Fait Maison (our favourite breakfast/ afternoon tea place) or Paul for French brasserie/ breakfast and bakery goods. There's plenty of cheap eats too including pizza, pasta, asian, indian and steak, and all the familiar restaurants on Gloucester Road.
Getting around London from here couldn't be easier, with Gloucester Road tube station only a 4-minute walk away, and South Kensington and Earl's Court stations nearby. From all these stations you can take the Piccadilly, District or Circle lines which will take you directly to cool and colourful Notting Hill in 5 minutes, to Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament in 10 minutes, or to Buckingham Palace in 15 minutes. We would recommend taking a leisurely stroll to all of these places to soak up the beautiful architecture along the way. Soho and its many restaurants and great nightlife is only 15 minutes away by tube. Additionally, the C1, 49 & 430 buses all have stops within a couple of minutes' walk.
