Perfect London location and Wonderful Hosts!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at this wonderful South Kensington location for a week and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The flat is in a perfect location- just a couple blocks walk from two main Underground stations and on main bus routes. Very easy to get to from Heathrow airport on the Piccadilly line. The neighborhood around the flat has all the services you might need - grocery stores, banks, pharmacy, restaurants and pubs all within a block or two.

The flat itself is very clean, comfortable and cozy. It has a small kitchen where were able to prepare meals when not eating out. The bathroom has been remodeled and is very nice including a great shower. It has a good Wi-Fi signal so we could keep in touch with friends back home. But the best part are the owners, Holly and her husband. They were wonderful hosts and very helpful in answering any questions we had about touring in London. I would highly recommend a stay at this apartment. Hopefully we are lucky enough to come back and visit again. Thanks Holly!

A London gem

  • 5 of 5

What a perfectly appointed flat for your stay in London! This has everything you need to be comfortable. Close to train stations, neighborhood groceries and restaurants/pubs. The only thing that could have made it more comfortable would be a mattress topper for the bed but I admit I am spoiled by a temperpedic bed at home. The owner has a collection of electrical socket adapters so all you need is a power strip. She was also a very helpful and gracious hostess. A piece of advice, learn the local bus route. We didn't take advantage of it and the bus stop is even closer than the underground.

Great location, comfortable apartment, WONDERFUL HOSTES

  • 5 of 5

This flat is located in a wonderful neighborhood very near Hyde Park, three great museums, and the Royal Albert Hall. There are two metro stops within 10 minutes and a bus stop right around the corner. Many good restaurants are within 5 minutes.

The flat is comfortably appointed and had everything we needed for a one week stay.

The best thing about the apartment is its owner. She lives in the apartment above this rental and is extremely helpful. My wife had a health problem while in London and the owner took a personal interest in her recovery. She was invaluable in advising us how and where to seek care, and made it possible for us to continue our travels.

We feel very fortunate to have found this accommodation in London and to have gotten to know the owner. Our hope is that we can return sometime soon for a second visit.

Excellent Location & Friendly/Helpful Owners

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 10 days in October 2016. The location is excellent and a short walk to either the South Kensington or Gloucester tube stop (Piccadilly Line, also the direct line from Heathrow). The flat is fully equipped and clean. The kitchen has everything that you will need a stay. The flat has ample storage and the bathroom (with tub) works well. The bed was comfortable and the WIFI had a strong signal. Holly was always available to help out and offered excellent eating recommendations. Overall, a great stay and I would not hesitate to stay there again. Cheers Holly.

Terrific flat, terrific owners

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here 2 weeks and were delighted with everything. The location can't be beat, 3 blocks from South Kensington tube, a bus a few meters away that takes you right to the tube-we took the 7 day travel pass and rode busses & the tube everywhere, so convenient. Near the V&A, Science Museum, Natural History Museum.

The flat has a nice little kitchentte where we cooked breakfast each morning and occasionally made dinner.

Bed comfortable, couch & chairs great for reading & research. Bathroom very nice. The owners were very helpful and suggested things we might do and how to get there. Highly recommended!!

Perfect 5-Star Ratings For a Reason

  • 5 of 5

After researching properties on this website, I chose this one based on its stellar rating. Now that I'm back after a week+ stay, I can only echo what has been written before. Don't hesitate! You'll be hard-pressed to find anything that trumps this value. It's clean, well-equipped, and has a very comfortable bed/pillows (slept better there than on my TempurPedic at home!) The neighborhood is quite upscale; it's safe and, for being in the city, quiet. The two nearby Tube stations are a huge bonus, as is the grocery store located 5 minutes away on foot. The owners set this unit apart, though. They are wonderful hosts, providing presence and hospitality without meddling. The whole experience was very classy. I highly recommend it.

About The Owner

We live in the same building so are available to deal with any questions or problems.

What makes this apartment unique

The location is fabulous and the garden is beautiful.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I have already recommended the apartment to several of my personal

friends after our most pleasant stay there. It is thoughtfully laid out and well

equipped, the hostess is extremely helpful and last but not least, it is

location, location that counts! Lovely neighbourhood, only a few minutes'

walk to two underground stations. From there you are at Piccadilliy Circus in

12 minutes.
