Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Kensington and Chelsea - South Kensington Apartment

2 bedroom, 1 bathroom apartment in London Centre- Sleeps 6

Large Beautiful Two Double Bedroom Apartment in charming South Kensington, London. Located in a grand Georgian House on one of the most sought after streets in London, very quiet and safe. The beautifully maintained building is located in by far one of the most prestigious districts in London.

The west facing living space gives the large living room a very light and airy feel. The recently renovated apartment has a wonderful reception room with high ceilings and antique dark wood furniture. The kitchen with an Italian granite floor includes all the necessary integrated appliances (new dishwasher, refrigerator, freezer, microwave/oven, hob, washing machine (including dryer), as well as a toaster, kettle, cutlery, plates, pots/pans, etc). It has a superb master bedroom with a king sized bed, a second bedroom with a queen sized double bed, and a double sofa bed in the living room, ideal for families. Both bedrooms have large floor to ceiling fitted closets with lots of hanging space and shelves. The apartment also has a beautiful large marble bathroom with designer Lefroy Brooks bathroom fittings and beautifully scented Baylis & Harding England bathroom toiletries for your stay. The living room has two beautiful sofas and the dining area has a new designer glass dinning table with seating for 6. The apartment has all mod cons, including a 32'’ flatscreen TV, Iphone/Ipod speakers, and high-speed wireless internet. There is a landline for local calls so you don't need to spend a fortune calling from an international cell/mobile. A fireplace gives the living area a very atmospheric feel. A romantic apartment for couples but also ideal for families.

The apartment is beautifully furnished with large handcrafted antique mirrors, large pillar candles and Fleur de lie period-style designer curtains.

The apartment also has recessed low voltage spot lighting with touch sensitive dimmable controls.

Cranley Gardens is located just a short walk away from the many restaurants, boutiques and bars in South Kensington, attractions such as the V&A, the Natural History Museum, etc and within easy reach at 10mins walk to the green spaces of Hyde Park and Kensington Palace.

The apartment is very close to transport links: 5 min walk to the nearest tube/underground and 2 min to the closest bus stop with direct lines to other major attractions.

PLEASE NOTE: This apartment is not suitable for elderly, seniors, or disabled individuals. This apartment is situated on the 3rd floor of a beautiful converted listed Georgian building in a conservation area and does not contain a lift/elevator.

Loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was great for our family of four during our stay in London. The apartment was just as described, spacious, and had everything we needed. The travel guides and restaurant/shopping suggestions were much appreciated. It was on a quiet, residential street which was helpful when sleeping with the windows open. Saphira and Tom always communicated promptly and check in/out was easy. It was close to both Gloucester Rd and South Kensington tube stations, although we walked to many sites. We enjoyed walking and biking at nearby Kensington Park several times. There are many restaurants close by which was a plus for watching the Euro Cup with other fans. We would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone staying in London.

Good location in London SW

  • 4 of 5

As promised. One nice bedroom, and one smaller. Good bathroom, kitchen and living area, with most of what it takes. Stairs make for good cardiac workout. Excellently served by public transport, and good food, wine and dining options all around. As is usual, a converted town house. No issues there; just be considerate of the neighbours. And the neighbours should be considerate of the guests!

Excellent home base for our holiday wanderings

  • 5 of 5

The flat worked very well for our family of 5. We used the comfortable air mattress as a 4th bed so that each child could sleep by him/her self. The nearest tube station is about a 7-10min walk away and we made liberal use of our Oyster cards to get around the city. Museums are walking distance as is Harrod's and shopping (longer walk, but doable). There is a grocery right next to the tube stop, so we saved some money by eating a meal a day in the flat. Thanks, Tom and Saphira!

Fabulous apartment in beautiful South Kensington.

  • 5 of 5

Very nicely appointed, spacious and comfortable apartment within a short stroll of great restaurants, tube stations and great shopping. We just had three weeks in this lovely apartment over Christmas and it couldn't have been more perfect. The property was very clean and tidy and made to feel even more cosy by the lovely gas effect log fire which we loved. The building and surrounds are very elegant and South Kensington is very upmarket and safe. Tom and Saphira are superb hosts and made everything simple from check in to check out. They couldn't have been more helpful and their handy list of recommendations of local restaurants etc was excellent. I wish we could have stayed another week !!

Delightful Flat in upscale South Kensington

  • 5 of 5

The flat (apartment/condo) was very well appointed, clean, well maintained & spacious. Check-in/out was simple & uncomplicated. Very close to the tube (Undergrond/Subway - 5mins walk) & centrally located. Good restaurants, pubs & bars all in walking distance. Good value & would definitely stay here again. It is on top floor, so is quiet with no overhead flat noise, but no lift (elevator) & several flights of stairs, which should be noted if bringing elderly, littlies or lots of luggage.

Spacious, great location, well provisioned apartment.

  • 4 of 5

A short walk to both Gloucester Rd and Sth Kensington tube stations, and close to shops and restaurants, the apartment is spacious and clean. There were plenty of essentials such as towels, crockery and cutlery and some extra touches like chocolates, local restaurant recommendations and even adaptor plugs.

The landlord was great to deal with and our family (2 adults and 3 children) really enjoyed our stay. We would definitely stay again.

The apartment is close to the most popular attractions including the V&A Museum, Science Museum and Natural History Museum only a short walk away (10 minutes). London's most famous department store Harrods is only a 5 minute drive away.
