Lovely flat in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

The building is really lovely with 24 hour concierge and porters. The flat was true to its description - small but very functional with a very nice bathroom. The bed was very comfortable and everything was exceptionally clean.

We loved the location! There are many shops and restaurants and pubs. The South Kensington tube station is a 5 minute walk away. It's also an easy walk to the Victoria and Albert museum, The Natural History museum and even Harrod's! I highly recommend Martina's flat. Martina herself was very easy to communicate with and took the time to answer all my questions with patience and grace. So comforting when you're traveling to new places!

Good For the price

  • 3 of 5

You get what you pay for. The apt. is inexpensive, cozy and comfy. We stayed in November and the rate was low. The furniture is a bit shabby. (Rips in the chairs and stains on couch). The pictures must be quite old. But if you need a place to crash for 1-3 nights, and don't want to spend a fortune, this is your place. We were out most of the day so only came back to shower and sleep. Great location, really nice building. Small market, Starbucks, and pharmacy right across the street.

Grand Building with Doorman and Concierge Service in amazing Location I was very impressed!

  • 5 of 5

My wife was a little hesitant booking this apartment first after the review the last guest left but after reading the first review and looking up the location and building on the internet we decided to give it a go anyways for our one night stay. We didn't regret it at all when we arrived we could we're greeted by a very friendly doorman and able to pick up our keys from the reception immediately.

There we're four of us in our group and although the flat is relatively compact ( around 30sqmtr) it is probably still twice ad big as any London Hotel room. Most importantly it faces the back of the building ie no street noise, was very clean and had everything one needs for a comfortable stay incl towels, toiletries, beds have been made ready and the flat overall was very cosy. Martina the owner was also very nice asking us if there is anything else we would need, but no thank you we all were very happy with the location and flat and had a great time! Shame we had to leave early next day we wished we could have stayed longer - but we had a nice breakfast in Starbucks arcoss the street- still sad to leave after one night but we all decided we will come back for sure and can only highly recommend Martinas flat!

Apt/flat is misrepresented with the photos that are posted - looks like a wide angle lens was used.

  • 1 of 5

This apt/flat is a very small studio - really for only one adult. It is cluttered, the furniture is old, stained and torn. Not the furniture in the posted photo. Was not as clean as it should be, nor were the essentials provided. Bathroom towels are old, threadbare and stained.

I had to reach out to the owner daily with issues.

Loved the building and the location - but do not recommend a stay in this unit unless the owner remodels and makes major renovations.

Owner's Response: Dear Mrs. Lavin. We are extremely surprised about your review. We have each month guests from all over the world and pride ourselves in hosting them in our property and providing our guests with a excellent service. We receive constantly extremely positive feedback for our service, the property, building and location. Immediately after your arrival you complained that the towels where not new. Unfortunately we can not purchase new towels for every guest but because you wanted new towels we immediately purchased 2 brand new white towel sets for you. Then you mentioned you would like more toilet paper. We provide 2 rolls as standard and the Supermarket is 20 meters across the street but we also purchased this and also had it delivered to the property (12 additional rolls). After this you complained that you wanted more dishwashing liquid and so it continued every day during your stay. The apartment is a large Studio ie 300sqft in a traditional style and 90% of our guests are families or 2 couples. Please note that this is the most exclusive area in London and the average Studio here is 150sqft for 2 individuals. We appreciate that you might be used to different sizes coming from the USA but unfortunately this is the norm here in prime Chelsea. We have been renting our apartment for nearly 10 years now to hundreds of guests but never had this kind of response. Thank you for staying with us. Sincerely Martina
