Comfortable flat in a great location!!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely flat was well appointed, very clean and had a feel of home. The owner, Mia, is an exceptional host, ensuring we were properly welcomed. She answered our many questions quickly and thoroughly, going to far as to help us find a pub to watch an American football playoff game (GO EAGLES!!).

The location is perfect, a short walk from two Underground stations and convenient to many locations across London. There a local bakery, food store and wine shop right around the corner. It’s located in a quiet residential neighborhood. We hardly heard anything from outside and felt comfortable walking around after dark.

If you’re looking for a couples retreat for a trip to London, this is it!!

It was ok.

  • 3 of 5

I liked the studio, although dark, due to curtains, as it is a ground floor with bed on main window, so everybody could see inside if curtains were not drawn. As it was very cold the electricity went down, so probably needs more power, but very well equipped. Chose the wrong place as it was quite far from city centre although had a tube staion nearby.

Owner's Response: Dear Maria I’m a bit confused, you said you liked the studio, then you said you should not have booked it. Firstly I met you at the underground, to help you with your bags as you said you had a bad back, we walked to the studio together. I let you check in early and I let you check out late and I answered all your what’s app messages. You said the studio was dark but kept the curtains closed. There is frosted glass and no- one can see in, also the road is a quiet residential road. There are 5 lights in the main room plus 2 lights under the cupboards in the kitchen area ,so 7 in total . We discussed the heating and it was left on for 24 hours a day. The heating is GAS not electric. In England we have a trip switch for the electric , this means if you plug too many gadgets, hair dryers, oven , washing machine, toaster etc on at the same time, the safety switch turns it off, this tells you, you are using too many appliances at one time. It has NEVER happened before. I have a qualified electrician come once a year to test the electrics. The studio is very close to the underground, it is in Zone 2, it’s one stop on the Piccadilly line to zone 1 . I say all this in the description. You told me you got a cab, one night and it was very expensive, and was the underground safe as you didn’t want to pay for the cab again , I assured you the underground had cameras and is very safe. Most people that stay at the studio take the underground. Maybe you should book more central, next time costing much more ££££££. Sent from my iPhone

Comfortable and Cozy Neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

Stayed 6 wonderful nights. Mia was helpful and on standby if we needed anything. Great to be so close to Baron Court Station, 5min walk at best.

Apt was cozy, clean, kitchen well stocked for cooking purposes. Neighborhood felt safe and generally quit. We took many night walks to various restaurants in the area as well as to and from the Tube. rick/Kathy

Excellent choice for me

  • 5 of 5

This is a cozy studio in a very good location. It's close to the tube station and has a nice cafe nearby. I enjoyed my stay there. Mia is very helpful and is a great host. One of the books on London in the flat led me to one of the best galleries I saw there. It wasn't one I knew about (Courtauld). Definitely see it if you love art. I've already recommended Mia's place to a friend who frequents London.

Queens Club - the famous tennis club, is only meters away from the apartment, perfect for the LTA Finals at Queens. Barons Court is a well heeled residential area of West London, with tube links into Central London only taking ten to twenty minutes depending on where you want to go.

Many people mistakenly believe that name Barons Court is inspired by Earls Court to the east and the association of the area in the early 19th century with the Margrave of Brandenburg-Ansbach (died 1806) and his English wife Elizabeth (the Margravine, the widow of the 6th Baron Craven).[4] They had a home at Brandenburg House immediately to the west of the site of Charing Cross Hospital. The Margravine died in 1828 and is commemorated by a number of roads in the area (Margravine Road and Margravine Gardens) and the Margrave possibly by Barons Court Road although the approximate equivalent rank in the British peerage to Margrave is a Marquess.

The name Barons Court is probably inspired by the Baronscourt estate in Ireland, where Sir William Palliser, who built the entire area, had connections. As well as Palliser Road itself, all the roads in the area are named after members of his family.

The platforms at Barons Court.

Perham Road - his wife

Charleville Road - his cousins, the Earls of Charleville

Gledstanes Road - his mother

Barton Road - his grandmother

Challoner Street - his great-grandmother

Fairholme Road - his married sister

Vereker Road - his married aunt, wife of Viscount Gort

Comeragh Road - after the family estate in Ireland

Castletown Road - after the Baronets Pallisers' estate in Ireland

Sir William's brother, John Palliser (the explorer) inherited the Comeragh estate in County Waterford. Sir William did not have an Irish estate of his own. Instead, he tried to develop this London estate. He died very suddenly on 4 February 1882, and the lawyers had a field day, selling everything off, including the 11 acres (45,000 m2) which would become the Queen's Club. Sir William was heavily in debt, though if he had not died so suddenly and had managed to sell many of the houses he could have been a wealthy man. As it was, the family ended up with nothing.
