Jeannie and John (the owners) have set up everything you will need to enjoy your stay and have also provided lots of little thoughtful touches. It was cold outside but the flat was cosy and comfy and the showers were hot and reliable. We could access all the famous London visitor sights via the tube, only 150m from the doorstop. Gloucester Road Station is on 3 different lines and travel was so simple and quick. Buy an Oyster Card and its so easy. We enjoyed Hyde Park, Victoria and Albert Museum and also the Natural History Museum all within walking distance to the flat. There are loads of great cafes, pubs and restaurants nearby but we also enjoyed looking after ourselves in the flat purchasing food from the local supermarket, Waitrose, next to the tube station. This must be the best location in London. Thanks Jeannie and John, we hope to see you again on another trip.

The place is incredibly comfortable, very centrally located, and Alex himself is a wonderful host. I was made to feel at home from the moment I walked in. Very accommodating in terms of checking in and out. 5 stars! Thank you so much Alex.

The description of the apartment was on point, it was very clean and well maintained. The host was very easy going and helpful. I would definitely recommend this apartment as it completed our trip :)
