Perfect home for 4!

  • 5 of 5

We a family of 4 travelled to London to see our friend family who lives in the neighbourhood. We stayed here in October 2014 and the flat was in a very good condition. The bathroom was clean and had good hot water and water pressure.

Superb location. You are literally in the middle of this beautiful Kensington district and a few minute away from 2 tube stations. Very convenient.

Highly recommended for family stays!

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Our family of six spent a week in this apartment & had a wonderful time! The apartment was clean & the downstairs neighbour helpful, providing us with lots of local tips. The apartment is situated between two tube stations making it extremely easy to get to all the sights. The neighbourhood was safe & my teenage daughter & I felt very confident walking to & from High Street Kensington at night. The local supermarket was a short walk away & as the neighbour told us if you go over in the evening their were some great deals! We would gladly stay here again.

excelent apartment and location

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed for a week in this apartment. The rooms are big, confortable and perfectly cleaned. The kitchen had everything we needed. The sofa beds are high- quality and really confortable. The windows are isolated, so it was very quiet.

The owners answered all our questions and helped us before arrival and during our stay.

The apartment is located in a beautifull area, with two tube stations in a small walk distance. A small but good supermarket is just round the corner and a bigger one very close to the apartment. There are restaurants and good pubs in the area too.

One advise for older people: the apartment is located in the first floor and the staircase is a bit difficult in its last part, specially with luggage.

We would definitively stay here again. We certainly recomend it!!

THE BEST Location in London

  • 5 of 5

This fabulous little gem is located just off a main street in the heart of Kensington and is even better than described in the listing. On the second floor, it is quiet, safe, and so close to everything you will not be disappointed. A 5-8 minute walk in either direction gets you to the tube, a grocery store is across the street, Whole Foods with a huge food court is a 5 min. jaunt down the hill, and multiple restaurants and bars all within walking distance made this the most convenient rental we have ever had. You have 3-4 top-notch bakeries/cafes to choose from in the morning, and the fish and chips at nearby Geale's are not to be missed. There's even shopping! You can park easily on the street (although we don't recommend driving in London if it's your first time), and the flat is spacious, with lots of natural light. All the amenities (W/D, iron, hair dryer) made our stay super easy and comfortable. We cannot say enough good things about this flat! The owner was very responsive to questions, and there is a helpful, friendly neighbor downstairs. You can't go wrong with this one - we truly cannot wait to return!

Kensington flat for week's stay

  • 4 of 5

Kensington property was well-situated for transportation and shopping. Great base of operations for week of London sightseeing.

Listing description was accurate. Flat was clean.

Management ladies were helpful and answered emails promptly.

Stairs were narrow and winding, could be a problem to some.

Close to a shopping street, quiet neighbourhood

  • 4 of 5

Nice apartment in a quiet neighbourhood. Several bus stops very close, tube station aswell. Enough space for a family with 2 children. The kids really enjoyed Holland park and adventure play park. The apartment was clean, but the hallway by the entrance was really messy and untidy.

Notes:
Notting Hill and High street Kensinton are in the area of West London and are part of the borough of Kensington and Chelsea. It is well known for Portobello market and its Carnival in the summer (last weekend in August). It is a great place to visit for its cafés, restaurants, market, boutiques and shops as well as pubs and bars. It is a very lively area and is one of the most popular places to be in when in London. It has so much to offer in entertainment whether you are looking for shopping, dining, film, drinking, clubbing or more. For the discerning shopper in search of the unique and the exclusive, Portabello Road is a must... However if you become tired from the city of London you are only 3 minutes walking distance from one of the most beautiful parks, Kensington Gardens/Hyde Park Corner where you can disconnect momentarily.
