It is a pleasant five to ten minute walk to the tube and the South Kensington Station can get you to most parts of London in no time. The museums and the Kensington Gardens are within easy walking distance as are the busy Gloucester Road with its shops and restaurants and the Fulham Road Cinema. A perfect place for a family of four that includes teenagers. It is not really a place for younger children and the three flights of stairs might be a struggle for some. For us it was a welcome chance to burn of some calories and a much more affordable alternative to the many posh hotels in this part of London.

                                                                                                      The apartment is ideally located if you want to be in South Kensington. Unlike many other short term rentals in London at comparable rates, this one has lots of space and is ideal for a family of four, although it can indeed easily accommodate two extra children. It is well furnished (in a classic style), well maintained and was spotless upon our arrival. Marco was extremely professional, friendly and helpful; he did all he could to make the check-in / check-out times work for us. Minor niggles include the fact that the main bathroom is separated from the master bedroom (and yes, the bathtub is not easy to get in/out of...), a somewhat "tired" mattress in the smaller bedroom and the limited number of drinking glasses available - in an otherwise well-equipped kitchen. The bottom line is that we had a great stay - so much so that we are going back again in a few weeks' time - and that we would recommend it without hesitation.
