Why Owner chose Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea
What our Guests say about the flat: "Thank you for a wonderful stay! The hosts were exceptionally helpful and have provided a beautiful homely spot in a very central location. The place is so beautiful and very comfortable for a family of four. We loved that it was close to the underground, shops and restaurants. The apartment is equipped with everything you might possibly need and the guest manual is well detailed to help you find all the great places to see and to dine at. The kitchen was so well equipped which meant that having a night in with a home-cooked meal was possible (one thing we really miss when we stay in hotels). We are so grateful to have found this place and hope to come and stay again soon!" Amy, South Africa "Would definitely recommend the house to travelers who seek for a stylish stay in London." Jo Ning, Taipei City, Taiwan "This is a wonderful home which is not only tastefully decorated with the finest materials but is also ideally location in Knightsbridge. A truly unique experience." Jeffrey, Switzerland "Thank you so much for having us at your lovely apartment--it was gorgeous and very clean and we enjoyed it so much. One of our best holiday stays! The apartment is exactly as pictured - bright (even for a downstairs apt), well decorated, modern and very clean. The location is super-central and only a 4 minute walk to the Knightsbridge tube station and close to much shopping and grocery stores as well. We would definitely recommend the apartment and would love to stay again in the future." Alexandra, New York, USA "This is a jewel of a place! I couldn’t believe how nice the flat is and what good value it was for the very exclusive Knightsbridge area. It is a lower ground floor flat with it's own private entrance to make coming and going very convenient. The large comfortable bed was heaven after long days exploring London. A very special trip that I hope to repeat soon! " Jonathan, New York, USA

Great location and fantastic stay!
We had an amazing trip! This flat was in a perfect location for us. To the right is Harrods and several tube stops. To the left the museums and lots of tube stops. We found many restaurants close by and lots of suggestions from Vlad. Thank you guys for the early check - in. Most helpful! Vlad answered all questions immediately - even an in the moment search for grilled fish! Vlad was very thoughtful and attentive. So important when travelling from another country. We had fantastic meals at Orsini, Montepliano, Brasserie of Light (Selfridges). We also ate at Pret A Manger every morning. The best coffee and healthy quick food at very reasonable prices. The almond croissant...fabulous. Easy instructions for the flat. We were thankful for the space as our kids are teenagers and needed that second bathroom. There is a safe! Honestly everything you can think of is in this flat. Even a washer/dryer, blow dryer and fans. Great place, great hosts, great trip!
Chic hideaway in Knightbridge
A designer gem: beautifully appointed basement apartment with delightful art, a magnificent master bedroom and a lovely lounge! All within 5 minutes of Harrod’s, the tube, and V&A and the other museums. Vlad is an incredible host - incredibly thoughtful, generous, responsible and helpful. We will be back!
An amazing flat in a convenient location!
I’ve stayed at a number of holiday rentals and I’ve never written a review before this one. I felt compelled to let everyone know how fantastic our experience was. The pictures are a true representation of this flat. It is beautiful. It is spacious. It is immaculately maintained. And, it is stocked with absolutely everything you need for a comfortable stay (full kitchen, toiletries, and towels). Most importantly the service is second to none. Raci and Vlad took great care of us. I was worried that we would arrive and have no way to get into our flat as our flight was over an hour early, landing at 6am. While we were processing through customs, I received a text from Vlad (who had been following our flight) to let us know he would meet us! We arrived to a welcome package of fresh fruit and snacks which my starving children devoured. Vlad gave us a full tour to make sure we understood everything we needed to know. And, he checked in on us several times to make sure we had everything we needed. This flat is literally two blocks from the tube and in the heart of so much great stuff. I can’t imagine staying anywhere else in London and I can’t recommend this rental highly enough.
No better location!
Spent 4 nights in this beautiful flat. The location in Knightsbridge is incredible, literally 2 minutes to Harrod's. Tons of restaurants and shops within minutes walk. The V&A and Science Museums are a 5-10 minute walk. The flat itself is beautiful. Spacious and amazingly designed. The photos accurately reflect the place. Very clean!! The owner kindly and thoughtfully left breakfast foods for us including cereal, croissants, milk, etc. Would highly recommend and can't wait to return.
GREAT Flat in swanky/central neighborhood
My response to Vlad pretty much sums up our experience during our seven day stay in London in February 2019:
We are so sad to be finishing our great week in London:
10 great restaurants
8 awesome historical sites
100+ deer sightings
72++ WALKING miles
4 beautiful SUNNY days
1 Chelsea v. Tottenham Spur game
And that’s just a part of it.
We will be departing 6 am-ish in am.
Would def rec the location as well as the beautiful flat to friends.
Having said that, and not saying this as a complaint, potential renters should know that the flat is in a walk down, below street level. Therefore you will not have any “views” of London. But really, the whole point of being in London is to get out there and see things in person! The time we did spend in the flat was extremely comfortable and conducive to excellent times with our friends —sharing cocktails, charcuterie, and wine from nearby Harrod’s!
I'm so glad you had a fun-packed and memorable time!
Thank you for the wonderful review.
I very much look forward to welcoming you back soon.
clean, modern, convienent location
The apartment is next to Harrods located in the center of city, close to the Knightsbridge station which is very convenient to get to anywhere. The apartment is exactly same as it is showing on the picture, very clean and beds are comfortable. Vlad was very friendly and helpful on providing us recommendations for our trip in England. I highly recommend this place, you won’t be disappointed.

Walk to the Royal address - Buckingham Palace is less than 15 mins walking. This means you and the Queen will be practically neighbours. Go and say Hi! Try to catch the guard change! The changing of the guards happens everyday in the summer and every other in the winter months. Whilst it's not quite be having tea with the Queen, it is one of the most loved British traditions.
Harrods is within a minutes' walk - the most iconic department store in the world is truly a sight to be seen. Covering 5-acres of space and 7 floors of shopping - you can truly find anything. Food hall is a must! The best way to go trough the Harrods Food Hall, especially if you are living next door, is to keep repeating to yourself that life is too short! Prepare to be amazed by the best and the finest!

There is lots of shopping to be had in Knightsbridge. Fancy some shoes? Head to the flagship stores of Jimmy Choos or Manolo Blanik. If you want more quantity and less quality, the high street has a big Topshop, HnM and other stores lined up. Beauchamp Place is just around the corner with its fabulous choice of restaurants and boutiques.
The amazingly beautiful and relaxing Hyde Park is also less than 5 mins walk away from the apartment - as simple as that - you are in one of Europe's greatest inner city parks. This majestic park, keeps the seasons and the beating heart of London. Walk, run, row, read, eat… On one of the rare sunny days in London, why not take opportunity of the boat rentals on The Serpentine, and enjoy a slow sail around Hyde Park. In the winters, you have the great Winter Wonderland at Hyde Park. There are rides, Santa and lots of mulled wine to be had!
Before embarking on a trip over here, make sure to save up so you can try some of the most fantastic restaurants in London. If you are looking for some high end eateries try Zuma, Bar Boulud or the lovely Indian at Amaya. For more tips check out my Guidebook on Airbnb or Welcome Pack which you will find at the property.

The food halls at Harrods are just the most amazing place to find curious delicacies from around the world. There are also lots of good supermarkets nearby.

Paradise for fashion and design lovers. Free to the public, there are rotating exhibits that cost a few pounds though.
Music is such a big part of London. Listen to the classics at Cadogan Hall, tickets go as low as £12 and it's minutes away from you.
The world famous Royal Albert Hall is located near by and tickets can be bought on the day of a performance early in the morning. For the past 145 years, this iconic concert hall has hosted everything from the BBC Proms to Cirque du Soleil and even tennis tournaments. It also is a mainstay for musicians recording live shows.
