Spacious studio apartment in a great location.
average rating of 4.85 based on 40 reviews

The apartment was very nice and provided everything we needed for our stay.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the apartment for several days. We really enjoyed our stay. The apartment was clean and nicely decorated. The owners were wonderful and responded quickly to any questions or requests. For example, when we arrived much earlier than the check in, they allowed us to leave our luggage at the apartment.

The property was very near the underground so getting around London was easy.

The kitchen had everything we needed for our stay. The apartment had one full bathroom and another area with a sink and mirror which made it much easier for three women to get ready in the morning. I would recommend this property.

Good location and studio

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 4 nights -- two adults and two college age students - on a budget. The apartment was very convenient about 3 short blocks from the tube station, so very convenient to get into central London area for all the sights. The Earl's Court area had quite a few restaurants so we had dinner in the area a couple of times and were pleased with the options. Apartment is as shown. We were worried that there wouldn't be much room to move around with the sofa bed and fold-down bed both deployed, but there was enough room -- after all, we were mainly there to sleep and shower. The internet was very good and reliable. The neighborhood felt safe and was relatively quiet. It was handy to have the kitchen - we saved by making our own breakfasts. There are a couple of small grocery stores nearby. It was great to have a washer and dryer in the unit since we were traveling light. So we did a couple of loads. Note the dryer captures the moisture in a tank and when the tank gets full you need to empty it, which happened to us. Just follow the instruction manual. Overall we'd stay there again - it worked out great! The hosts were very responsive on email and the instructions/guidelines were simple and easy to follow.

great location and great hosts

  • 5 of 5

so this flat exceeded our needs. It provided us with a clean, easy to access, conveniently located flat in earl's court. very close to the tube, close to several restaurants, museums , etc. the flat itself was in great condition and met our needs. The only minor issue we ran into was that the temperature of the water in the shower would fluctuate between hot and cold. We were likely doing something wrong, but couldn't figure it out. It made for interesting showering experiences! Anyways, i would recommend this flat to anyone. There is a small park nearby, close to a grocery story, and just very convenient. The hosts were easily accessible and the instructions to get in and out of the property were very easy to follow!

Such a wonderful place to experience London

  • 5 of 5

First off...we arrived on the 24th not the 23rd but we booked that night as we had an early arrival in Heathrow. Great idea - could just take the Picadilly line to Earls Court tube, walk about 5 blocks and we were home.

This was our second stay at Hilary and David's cozy little flat - that should speak volumes. As before - it is so well appointed and comfy and so very clean. The location is just excellent with a large Tesco about 4 blocks away, a Sainsbury express around the corner, Starbucks about one block away and of course the tube station with both the Picadilly line and the District line calling.

We will definitely return on our next stay in London and crossing our fingers that it will still be available.

This central London apartment is situated in an attractive garden square in the Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. The spacious studio makes an ideal alternative to hotel accommodation. It is a perfect base for visiting the iconic sights of London, shopping in the fabulous stores, visiting the theatres of the West End or going to galleries and exhibitions. The apartment is only a few minutes walk (0.2 mile) from the underground station at Earls Court giving easy access to all the top sightseeing locations. South Kensington's famous museums are just 1 mile away (two stops on the tube) and shopping at Harrods, Harvey Nichols, Sloane Square, the King's Road or Oxford Street couldn't be more convenient. The green, open spaces of Hyde Park and Kensington Palace Gardens are also within easy reach, as is the exhibition centre at Olympia.

A wide variety of restaurants are just around the corner together with a range of shops and services plus a 24 h supermarket.
