The flat is in an ideal location - close to the underground, Hyde Park, restaurants and grocery. It is a spacious flat with lots of light - and having 2 bathrooms is a big bonus. The key drop off/pick up was very close and convenient. Having the Wi Fi and the washer/dryer was great. The owners were always very responsive to inquiries. I would recommend booking/paying through the site rather than directly to make the process more straightforward. While we had no issue with the stairs - If you have mobility issues - you should note that there are stairs outside leading down to the flat. Overall, we would definitely recommend.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

A few things made my stay there very pleasurable indeed, the area, to be so close to some of the most famous streets in London yet stroll around in the evening in an almost relaxed village atmosphere was very enjoyable indeed. Also the the friendly help from the owners at the beginning of my short stay defiantly left an impression, the attention to small details in the property were also greatly appreciated, quality of linen, cleanliness of entrance hall. With regards to the immediate surrounding area, the apartment is minutes away from a variety of restaurants, bars and cafes all of the standard one would expect from that particular area of London. Personally I also liked being in close proximity to all forms of public transport, as the nature of this stay was to enjoy the sights of the city the apartment was just exactly what I was looking for. This is a property in an exceptional area of London which delivers all that it promises, my stay there was very pleasurable indeed and I would return without hesitation.

                                                                                                      Location is excellent / Top quality food store (Waitrose) is within 200 metres of property

                                                                                                      4 of 5
                                                                                                      We stayed for 7 nights from July 18 to 25, 2016. With record 30 degree Celsius temperatures being in evidence we were able to sleep well by leaving the french doors open to the walled, open-sky patio. This was important since the accommodation has no windows. The property description is very accurate although some may be surprised at just how small the accommodation is. Notwithstanding, at GBP 80 per night for this location it represents very good value for London. It would have been nice to receive a 'welcome pack', say, a pint of milk and some English Breakfast teabags. Further, whereas, it clearly states that there is no terrestrial (landline) TV, it is a pity that there is no live TV especially since the UK has, arguably, the best TV in the world. A few housekeeping issues, which are easy fixes, would go a long way to satisfying guests, namely, the toilet roll/tissue holder is falling off the wall, the plug in the bathroom sink does not hold water and the tap/faucet in the bathroom is not properly positioned over the sink thus contributing to a wet countertop. All said, I would recommend this accommodation based on its location, price, good shower pressure, comfortable bed and patio.........and did I mention, easy access to Waitrose and South Kensington Underground Station.
