Wonderful place to stay in London

  • 5 of 5

Always a great stay here (have stayed here several times). Perfect location in South Kensington. Very cozy, and everything one would need for a few days or a couple of weeks. Beats the nearby boutique hotel I once stayed in by miles! Wonderful kitchen and bathroom, and great bedroom with generous closet space. Tons of light! I can't recommend this flat enough.

Wonderful location!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Opening the door to this bright , airy apartment was delightful, after a long day of travel. We immediately felt like we were "home". Comfortably furnished, it provided us with a respite after long days of sightseeing. We cooked in the small but totally efficient kitchen which was supplied with everything one needs and slept soundly in the comfortable bed and quiet location. Close to the underground, which we used often, and within walking distance to Kensington Park, this apartment is IDEAL for sightseeing forays!!! We hated to leave!!! Working with the property manager, Melissa, was a total delight..she made sure everything was in order and that our stay was comfortable. A TERRIFIC bonus, for sure!!!

Perfect apartment in heart of London!

  • 5 of 5

We are a couple over sixty and are very satisfied with our choice of this lovely apartment in the heart of London for our trip. Even the stairs couldn't disturb it. The place is nice, clean, well located and the contact with Clarissa was wonderful. The property is perfect for two people who want to enjoy of London's sightseeings.

We will truly recommend it to all our friends!

It was an absolute pleasure having them as guests and we are looking forward to accommodating them again very soon. Very best wishes, Clarissa (M2 Property)

Great flat and location

  • 4 of 5

This Kensington location flat was a wonderful place to stay - close to two tube stops, with plenty of shops and restaurants nearby. It was nicely appointed with everything you could want in a flat. There are a few things to be aware of, however: there is no a/c and no cross ventilation, but I asked for a fan and one was produced right away. Also, be prepared to walk up 62 stairs each time you return to the flat! But all in all, I would highly recommend the unit and would definitely return there myself.

Great location, only a few minutes walk from the Gloucester road tube station. Lovely and clean. The property was described well, so there was nothing unexpected.Close to supermarkets, pubs, restaurants and museums.Welcomed by Elliot. We were given good information about the property and nearby facilities. It was great to have a 'home' for a week, as we had been travelling for the 3 weeks prior,staying in hotels. Great to have a washing machine! I would definitely stay again, and will recommend it to family and friends. Thanks.

Cozy flat in South Kensington

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Cranley Gardens for a week and found it clean, bright (the mirrored wall is a nice touch) and well appointed. Walking distance to both the Grosvenor Street and South Kensington Tube stations, with many good restaurants nearby. The stairs gave me pause but I conquered them after a couple of trips up and down. The bed was very comfortable - the rain shower was lovely! If I may make a suggestion, a full-length mirror behind the bedroom door would be most useful. London is a vibrant, lively yet stately city and I look forward to my next visit.
