We picked this apartment due to its proximity to tube stops and great location. We were not disappointed! A few days prior to arrival, we sent a message to the management to see if it were possible for us to drop our bags off prior to our actual check in. Our greeter was friendly and happy to let us in when we arrived in London about 11:00am. We left to give her a chance to clean from the previous renters. She was very trustworthy and very thorough in her instructions for using the property. Great things you should know about this property: It is a VERY short walk to the West Kensington Tube stop which is on the District line which connects you to major sights. It is accessible from London Heathrow via Piccadilly line. For American travelers, you will most likely arrive in Terminal 3 then proceed to the underground. It is about a 40 minute ride to Baron's Court, along Piccadilly line. If you don't want to walk to the flat from there (.6 miles) you can switch trains right on the same platform and pick up the District line to West Kensington for a shorter walk. We did this with out two daughters, 11 and 15 and had no trouble. This flat is in a neighborhood setting where school children play outside and people live and work. There are small grocers along the road from the Tube Stop where you can buy staples and grocery items. There are also little cafes for breakfast that are excellent. We recommend Carraro's. There are also a variety of international cuisine quick stops... Thai, Turkish and pizza. There is even a Dominos not too far. For dinners we would board the Tube for Earl's Court (Addie's Thai) and Gloucester Road. The flat has very comfortable beds! Our children liked having their own space and each having separate beds. We also liked that technically with only one bath, the toilet had a sink on one side of the hall and a shower with another sink on the other side of the hall. We all needed mirrors and sinks so it made us feel like we actually had two baths. We will say that the water is EXTREMELY hot!! Be careful if you have younger children. We also would have liked for there to have been a clothes dryer but the drying rack worked fine. We appreciated the extra voltage adaptors and french press for coffee. We were comfortable and felt at home with a great spot to come back to after a very busy day in the city.

                                                                                              This property is conveniently located in Central London and allows easy access to shopping, parks, underground, and buses. We were provided with three sets of keys, which allowed our group to come and go at their own pace. There is even a garage, should you have a car. It was easy to book this property and the owners/management were very pleasant and responsive to all of my questions. My family of seven found the accommodations to be adequate for our three night stay in June 2016. However, the property does not present as nicely as the staged photos in the listing, as it lacks decor and items that could make it seem more inviting and comfortable. This home is on three levels with a narrow, steep staircase. The beds were not particularly comfortable, and it was quite warm in the upper level bedrooms. Ceiling fans would be a nice addition to these rooms, especially in the warmer months. The width of the doors to the shower stalls in the upper bathrooms are small, and tall people will need to mind their heads so as not to hit the sloped ceiling in those showers. The shower in the third floor master bathroom also leaked onto the floor, soaking the bath mat. The bath towels were a nice size and very good quality, which was nice. Guests will be much more comfortable with a just a bit more attention to detail by the management. There was no hand soap or shower gel provided in the master bathroom, so we used the hand soap from the kitchen. We could have used another towel or two in the kitchen, and the hood above the stove was missing its lightbulbs. It would also be very helpful to have an information booklet available, which contains information about operation of the washer/dryer, trash disposal, check out procedures, etc. My daughter used the dryer to dry the bathmat that got soaked from the leaky shower, but found that even after running the dryer for an hour, the mat had not dried. Having just come from another VRBO with a similar dryer, she was aware of the drawer that needed to be emptied of water after a few loads. She pulled the drawer out and it was so full of water that she wasn’t sure it had ever been emptied. It was no wonder the dryer could not dry the clothes, as there was no place for the extracted water to go. Once that tray was emptied, the dryer worked very well. I would recommend this home to a group needing accommodation for six or seven people in London. I do hope the management will find my comments to be constructive

With this it is very quiet area and safe to walk around. It is easy to feel like a local. There is a hospital close by for emergency - if you ever need one. unfortunately we did need this. The booking process was good and any concerns we had while we were there were sorted very quickly. It is comfortable and lovely when the sun comes out. Could have stayed longer. would definitely go back.
