Great location !

5 of 5
Clean, well-maintained and well-managed property. Would recommend to anyone as a great starting point for exploring London. Close to South Kensington tube, Hyde Park, bus lines and lots of great restaurants. Very large home, great for a group of 6.

Beautiful flat in a lovely neighborhood

5 of 5
This was the quintessential London flat. Supermarket nearby, subway stop 5 min walk. The neighborhood was very upscale and safe.
