We picked this apartment due to its proximity to tube stops and great location. We were not disappointed! A few days prior to arrival, we sent a message to the management to see if it were possible for us to drop our bags off prior to our actual check in. Our greeter was friendly and happy to let us in when we arrived in London about 11:00am. We left to give her a chance to clean from the previous renters. She was very trustworthy and very thorough in her instructions for using the property. Great things you should know about this property: It is a VERY short walk to the West Kensington Tube stop which is on the District line which connects you to major sights. It is accessible from London Heathrow via Piccadilly line. For American travelers, you will most likely arrive in Terminal 3 then proceed to the underground. It is about a 40 minute ride to Baron's Court, along Piccadilly line. If you don't want to walk to the flat from there (.6 miles) you can switch trains right on the same platform and pick up the District line to West Kensington for a shorter walk. We did this with out two daughters, 11 and 15 and had no trouble. This flat is in a neighborhood setting where school children play outside and people live and work. There are small grocers along the road from the Tube Stop where you can buy staples and grocery items. There are also little cafes for breakfast that are excellent. We recommend Carraro's. There are also a variety of international cuisine quick stops... Thai, Turkish and pizza. There is even a Dominos not too far. For dinners we would board the Tube for Earl's Court (Addie's Thai) and Gloucester Road. The flat has very comfortable beds! Our children liked having their own space and each having separate beds. We also liked that technically with only one bath, the toilet had a sink on one side of the hall and a shower with another sink on the other side of the hall. We all needed mirrors and sinks so it made us feel like we actually had two baths. We will say that the water is EXTREMELY hot!! Be careful if you have younger children. We also would have liked for there to have been a clothes dryer but the drying rack worked fine. We appreciated the extra voltage adaptors and french press for coffee. We were comfortable and felt at home with a great spot to come back to after a very busy day in the city.

The listing was an accurate representation of the flat itself, and was very clean on arrival. It had plenty of space for us all. The beds were very comfortable, the kitchen was adequately equipped so we could cook some nights, and we could do some much needed washing after 3 weeks travelling prior to London. The bus and tube were no more than 10-15 mins walk away (depending on the stop or station needed), and on the weekend only 2 mins to Olympia overground. We could walk to some very nice areas such as Notting Hill and Holland Park. There are good take aways nearby, pubs, and a comprehensive supermarket. The owners were very responsive to our queries in the lead-up to our visit. They were very forthcoming with information and provided us with a detailed map and other documents after we booked, as well as offering further assistance. They were also very helpful with a couple of small things after our arrival, even late at night. As we spent most days out touring, it was a great place to come "home" to and relax. We would stay here again and recommend it to others. Thanks, Hugo and Lizzie!

The apartment was clean, nicely decorated and had everything we wanted. And the location was a perfect match for us. The owner responded very quick to questions. Next trip to London we will certainly try to stay here again.
