It is a quiet residential area surrounded by many garden squares yet right in the heart of London. The flat is a few minutes away from Gloucester Road station, which has very good underground links to all the main areas of London. The Natural History, Design, Victoria and Albert museums are all within walking distance, as well as Harrods, Hyde park and Kensington Gardens. Plenty of restaurants , cafes, bars and convenience stores within a few minutes walk. The flat itself is very airy, witih high ceilings and neutrally decorated . The bed is super comfortable and as it overlooks the garden, very quiet. Is very weel maintained and clean. Anna was a very helpful and gracious host. She was very thughtful and provided breakfast which i enjoyed whilst looking over onto the gardens. I highly recommend this property and guest. Should i need to stay again in central London, i certainly be back.
