Real gem

4 of 5
A well appointed compact apartment in South Kensington that is an ideal location to explore London. It is a pleasant five to ten minute walk to the tube and the South Kensington Station can get you to most parts of London in no time. The museums and the Kensington Gardens are within easy walking distance as are the busy Gloucester Road with its shops and restaurants and the Fulham Road Cinema. A perfect place for a family of four that includes teenagers. It is not really a place for younger children and the three flights of stairs might be a struggle for some. For us it was a welcome chance to burn of some calories and a much more affordable alternative to the many posh hotels in this part of London.

A very nice, spacious and cosy flat for the whole family!

4 of 5
Tom and Saphira were very nice hosts, we found everything exactly as described and the flat is equipped with lots of heaters so it is nice and warm even in mid-winter! The neighbourhood is full of shops and places to eat and it is only a very short walk to the next tube station. Definitely can recommend staying here!

Great location in a very nice building

5 of 5
The flat is great for one or two people. Has all the necessary amenities and an easy walk to either Sloane Sq or South Kensington tube. Felt safe walking after dark.
