Why Owner/ Manager chose Kensington and Chelsea
The Flat is fantastically located just seconds from the Natural History Museum, Imperial College and in the heart of Museum district. My flat is just five minutes walk from Gloucester Road and South Kensington Tube stations which are on the Circle, District and Piccadilly Lines (which serves Heathrow Airport). It is perfectly located for events at the Royal Albert Hall, V&A, Natural history Museum, Editor's Top Pick - Recommended Royal College of Art, Brompton Oratory, Serpentine Gallery , Editor's Top Pick - Recommended as well as shopping in Kensington and Chelsea.
What makes this Apartment unique
An amazing location, being able to see one of the greatest museums and buildings in London from your living room truly is a rare privilege. You can even use a little balcony to sit outside and sip from a glass of wine while you watch the world passing by at a fast pace. Not only it's an extremely convenient location but it’s also a very quintessentially beautiful street and building. You can feel nobility the moment you enter and there is no doubt those high ceilings and large areas provide a rare sense of space in London. The furniture is made of beautiful (and some custom made) design classical pieces, this is when it starts getting luxurious, the main bed is also bigger than the average and they all have an incredible feel to it. The entertainment is fantastic and the kitchen comes with all the modern appliances you might need. It’s a complete apartment and there are many special aspects to it.

Very comfortable, clean and spacious
We really enjoyed our stay in this flat! The Owner/Manager Moe was super helpful both before our arrival and during our stay. He answered all questions promptly and thoroughly. The home was lovely, and spacious (4 adults) and very clean. Location was super convenient. They had all starter supplies: shampoo, conditioner, dishwasher detergent and laundry detergent. We loved that there were blackout shades in the bedrooms, which is rare when we travel. A note to American travelers: there is no dryer per se, but they have the water heater (for boiler) closet with a clothes drying rack. The little closet is warm, so clothes dry in a few hours. You have to plan ahead a little, but it was fine for us! Great home, and great service. Highly recommend!
Hope all is well!
Thank you so much for this genuine review! Glad you enjoyed your stay at home & in London. Just to clarify that the washing machine has a dryer within but I just suggested to dry the wet clothes in the drying room cause they come out almost ironed.
Thank you again to you & the family
we had a flawless stay here for 6 nights. location and amenities cannot be beat when trvaeling with children
Dear Margaret, I would like to thank you very much for leaving such a genuine review. I am happy that you enjoyed your holiday and felt comfortable at home & location. Looking forward to welcoming you next time in London. Thank you, Best Regards to you and your lovely Family, Moe
Great space, great location, great hospitality!
My family and I had a wonderful stay at this property. Mo was very responsive by email and I had zero problems accessing the apartment or during the stay. It was exactly as pretty and spacious as it appeared in the listing, and spotlessly clean. There were plenty of fresh towels and sheets, coffee and tea and an equipped kitchen, fans and AC, good WiFi, and even typical "hotel" toiletries in the bathrooms. It was as "turnkey" easy as a hotel but with the space and calm of a nice apartment. Our trip went great because anyone who was tired could retreat easily to the apartment in the afternoon to recharge, and we all had enough space there to relax. The location is excellent: an easy walk to Gloucester Road tube, a large Waitrose supermarket, drugstores, restaurants, museums, parks... plus it only took a minute to hail a passing taxi on the surrounding streets. One of my favorite days was walking to Kensington Gardens, renting a Santander cycle (city bike) and riding from there on bike paths around the city. I would recommend this apartment highly and had a wonderful stay. Wish I could be there now!

Lovely stay - spacious, clean, bright, modern and in a wonderful neighborhood
We had a wonderful stay. While we were there for the brief London heat wave, the air conditioning in the bedrooms was a huge plus. Communication with Moe was easy with clear and concise directions. We stayed with our teenagers whom loved the space and location as well. We would highly recommend the flat!

Excellent stay in Kensington
A very well equipped, attractively furnished and spacious flat in a perfect location. We appreciated the air conditioning, the “drying room” for laundry, the umbrellas on a rainy morning. Moe was a responsive and helpful host. Highly recommended by this family of four.

South Kensington,, is a great place to spend a whole day. As well as three of London's biggest and best museums, there're plenty of other things to do that are sure to entertain and amuse everyone in your group.
Travel to South Kensington
South Kensington has a Tube station which is served by the Piccadilly line, the Circle line and the District line. There are also some bus routes that go through the area.
If you're going to be in London for more than a day, it's worth buying a Visitor Oyster Card in advance. The Visitor Oyster Card is delivered to your home before you arrive in London. It is one of the easiest ways to get around London.
If you do not have a Visitor Oyster Card, but still plan to travel around London for more than a day, buy an Oyster card at the Tube station. Learn more about Oyster Cards.
South Kensington: London's Free Museums
South Kensington is home to a cluster of free museums, making it the perfect destination for families and adults alike.
In winter, the Natural History Museum also hosts an ice-rink.
At the Victoria and Albert Museum, you can see art and design from the past 3000 years, including ceramics, furniture, fashion, jewelry, photographs, sculpture, textiles and paintings.
The family-friendly Science Museum caters for kids of all ages. The interactive Garden area is specially designed for under fives, while the hands-on Launchpad gallery is perfect for teenagers.
Just next door you'll find London's Natural History Museum, where you can come face-to-face with a giant T-rex, and experience an earthquake in the Power Within zone.
The Royal Albert Hall
Kensington's famous Royal Albert Hall plays host to The BBC Proms concerts each year. As well as classical concerts, you can also see rock and pop gigs, ballet, opera and even tennis here!
Next door to the Royal Albert Hall is the Royal College of Art, a postgraduate art and design college, which holds regular exhibitions. Look out for up-and-coming artists and designers at the annual graduate shows.
There's plenty of green space in Kensington – the area's home to two of London's magnificent Royal Parks: Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park.
When you're in Kensington Gardens, make sure you visit Kensington Palace, the current London residence of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. It is also where both Queen Victoria and Diana, Princess of Wales lived. Explore the State Apartments, see Queen Victoria's bedroom, look around temporary exhibitions, stroll around the landscaped gardens and enjoy a delicious afternoon tea in the Orangery.

High above the shops of Kensington High Street is a hidden oasis, Kensington Roof Gardens. The rooftop is home to award-winning British restaurant, Babylon, as well as a private members' club, a series of themed gardens and four resident flamingos!
If you're a history fan, make sure you visit nearby Linley Sambourne House. Cartoonist Edward Linley Sambourne and his family lived here from 1874, and the house still contains most of the original furniture and fittings.
