Guestbook comments from the owner

Malcolm

I’m not a member and so can’t sign in to write a review.

Please add below:

I LOVED the flat. The location is VERY central and yet the flat itself is in a cul de sac and so very quiet. The building it beautiful and clean as is the flat. The bathroom is very large. The flat itself is comfortable for one or two people. Kitchen is small but well stocked.



Malcom is the property manager and is very friendly. I met him the first and last day but I knew he was only a phone call away if I needed anything. I didn't b/c it was a very smooth stay.

In summary, I plan to stay there again when I visit.

Great Location/Very comfortable

  • 4 of 5

My two children (11/9) and I stayed at the flat for 3 nights. The owners were very good in the communication and allowed an early-check in. The flat was very well accommodated -- we used the kitchen each day for breakfast and dinner. There are three grocers all within a very short walking distance. The sleeping area was warm, the beds very comfortable, and the highspeed internet was exceptionally fast. Bring your bar soap with you -- we left a stock of napkins for the next few guests. Otherwise there was plenty of other utility items. We saw a few tenants using the stairs outside the windows to access the common area for trash/recycling, but it was not intrusive. Plus we were out of the unit most of the day sightseeing. The area felt incredibly safe.

The location is a great thing at this flat. It is right on the Jubilee tube line, so pulling our baggage a few blocks was not a problem. (It was so close to the Knightsbridge station that we accidentally walked past the street the first time!) Walking distance to several museums, and right along Brompton road which has a ton of bus routes.

We were happy with the unit, would stay here again, and recommend it to friends.

Perfect for your stay in London

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was perfect for our stay in London. It is in the best location in Knightsbridge just around the corner for Harrods and has all the amenities you need. The apartment was clean, well heated as we were there in winter, well equipped with TV and WIFI facilities. Malcolm and his wife were very friendly and helpful on our arrival. The apartment is very close to a selection of grocery stores and restaurants/cafes and pubs. The nearest tube station of Knightsbridge allows you to access all the lines to get around London and see all the attractions. We would recommend this apartment to anyone who asked!

PERFECT Flat for a Stay in London

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this flat in the heart of London. Malcolm and his lovely wife Negat were marvelous with communications and were at the flat upon our arrival which was perfect. We stayed for 23 days in September and the unit fit all of our needs. We only brought carry-on luggage as there is a washer in the unit and the hamper worked perfectly for driying clothes. We felt very comfortable and safe in this flat and have traveled in Europe so have good comparisons.. The location is also perfect with the tube on the Picadilly line (underground) just a few minutes from the flat which brings you directly from Heathrow Airport; four short stops to the theather District (Leister Square); to the rails systems too for trips outside London, etc. The neighborhood provides.great restaurants and pubs (Queens Arm, Bunch of Grapes, two markets (M & S and Little Waitrose), coffee shops (Pauls and Starbucks where I became a regular), terrific shopping for the shopaholics (with Harrods just around the corner), Victoria and Albert Museum and the Natural History Museum, Kensington and Buckingham Place, Hyde Park and .Kensington Gardens, all within walking distance! In summary, we loved our stay in this flat and in London and would definitely stay here again (hopefully in 2016 or sonner). Thank you Malcolm and Negat for everything..

You Get What You Pay For

  • 3 of 5

On the plus side - pleasant and punctual owner representatives, clean linens, central London location, small but doable space, listing description mostly accurate

On the negative side - unit was dated and not as clean as I would have liked (I purchased a pair of slippers to walk around in the unit), the immediate neighbor has a high Muslim ethnicity (no prejudice, but if I am going to be staying in such an area I would have like to know), trash closet for building is located outside kitchen door (was worried about rodents but did not see any), their is no dryer only a washer (was informed that the unit description says this) I hung clothes on the drying rack provided and most items dried overnight.

Finally, I would not recommend this unit to friends or family, as I become older my standards are higher. For young people who aren't to picky, looking for a convenient spot it is a good choice. The Piccadilly line of the underground can be found two blocks away and makes traveling around the city easy.

Owner's Response: I am sorry that we appeared not to meet this guest's very high standards. The unit may appear dated, as it is in a period building, and we have every intention of updating the kitchen in the near future, when general building refurbishment will take place. These facts are reflected in the very competitive rates charged, compared with other apartments in this locality With regard to cleanliness, the unit is thoroughly cleaned between each rental, and we have had no complaints of this nature before - indeed a number of reviews comment on the cleanliness. The flooring is a natural wood finish Amtica, which has irregular dark markings which should not be confused with dirt. The immediate neighbourhood is very cosmopolitan, as is most of central London, and there is a very large French population in the area - the Muslim visitors and residents perhaps stand out because of their dress? Yes, the trash closet is adjacent to the back door, but rodent control is a priority for the building management and no guests have reported seeing rodents. Drying of washing is by means of a drying rack provided, for the small number of guests who require this facility, as stated in the unit description. A significant number of guests, of all ages, have seen fit to recommend our apartment to friends and relatives, and indeed some to make return bookings.

Cozy and Convenient - Great Value

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Knightsbridge was wonderful in this cozy and convenient studio apartment. Everyone (Malcolm, Malcolm's wife, brother-in-law, nephew) who we had contact with was accommodating, friendly and helpful. The flat had just enough room for my husband and I, with all the conveniences. Being from Canada, we could have used a set of instructions for the washer (looked in the kitchen drawers but only found a booklet on how to hook up the washer) but we did end up being able to do a bit of washing which was great. The area is quiet and very close to shopping, restaurants and tube. Very clean and safe building. Staying in this flat was a great start to our holiday in England. Thank you!
