A few museums nearby (good ones if you are traveling with children and catch a rainy day). Easy to move about London from here. The house is quiet, with plenty of space for 5-6 people. It comes equipped with the basics - towels, bedding, dish soap, etc. Clear and concise communication with the management company.

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      We had a wonderful time in Hereford Square. SO CONVENIENT to Gloucester Road tube station, the buses, the museums on Cromwell Road. The 49 bus will take you to South Kensington Station or on down to Kings Road in Chelsea. From there the 11 bus will take you to Victoria Station, Westminster, and St. Paul's Cathedral. So many nice restaurants close by: try Cafe Forum for breakfast and coffee; Wildwood is a chain but quite good; the Star of India on Old Brompton Road is upscale Indian and very good; Bumpkins just a couple of blocks away is great for Sunday roast. The flat has everything you need, just move in and make yourself at home. Everything works, everything is modern. Even though it's a basement flat, the front room--sitting room, kitchen--is full of light from the window. The bedroom is quiet and roomy, plenty of storage and closet space. The bed is big and comfortable. Jeannie is a most gracious, kind, helpful host. We just fell in love with her, really. We will stay there again if at all possible.
