Great Location. Responsive Owners

  • 4 of 5

The flat was just as described. It is in a very convenient location. The noise from the trains (as described by other guests) was not an issue. I had difficulty operating the washer/dryer. In the US we have separate machines. Nancy was very helpful in providing guidance. On our third night (4:30 a.m.) we discovered a ceiling leak in the bathroom. Nancy and Terrence responded immediately. It turned out the water heater had sprung a leak and required our move from the flat. They were helpful in helping us locate an alternative place to stay. This works well for two people. Enjoy your stay!

Perfect Location.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon. The location was perfect and the view was lovely. As previously noted in another review; you are close to the underground metro (you can see the train pass from the window). However, the metro stopped running around midnight so it wasn't bad.

The apartment was clean, beautifully decorated, comfortable and spacious for just the two of us. If you had four people it could get a little tight. But you wouldn't be spending all day in the apartment anyway. So not bad. Bathroom is a great size. Kitchen is perfect size for two people working in it. Other than forgetting to dust the ceiling fan, the apartment was clean and well kept.

Didn't have any trouble with neighbors or anything. They were always curtious when meeting in the elevator, hallway and lobby. Receptionists were nice as well.

Literally down the street from the tube station. As well as walking distance/5 minute tube ride from great food, museums and shopping. We definitely recommend Byron Burger near the tube station. And the pubs down that street.

Shopping for groceries was at Sainbury's and Waitrose. Both had good selections.

Thank you for such a wonderful place. We loved it and want to come back in the future.

Location is Spot On

  • 4 of 5

Location, location, location. Just a stone's throw from Gloucester Road tube, a Waitrose and Sainsbury's, fantastic French bakeries, Paul and Richoux, a great burger chain and a Japanese restaurant, Umami, plus the major museums of South Kensington. South Kensington features great shopping and restaurants, all within walking distance. Gloucester Road tube on the Picadilly line puts all of London within easy reach including Heathrow without changing.

The studio is attractively furnished, modern, clean, safe and accessible, in a consierged building, and quiet for London. Compact but with everything you need and decent value. There is also a David Lloyd gym in the building. You can also see the faraway London eye glowing red at night on the skyline.

Our hosts communicated very efficiently, showing up immediately to fix a small problem when we first arrived. We had a very pleasant stay.

Cosy, nice but lacked hot water

  • 3 of 5

Nancy replied before and during our stay very quickly. The pictures make the apartment seem bigger than it actually is but we still had our own space and weren't living on top of each other.

The apartment is very close to a tube station within a 5 minute walk; however the tube line does run directly behind it so it is very noisy. In generally we felt very safe in this neighbourhood, however there was domestic dispute in the building which was a bit frightful but couldn't be avoided. Luckily it was a one night occurrence.

The kitchen was fitted with everything that you would need to cook a meal.

Our downside was the fact we didn't have hot water. Nancy and her husband were quick to reply and tried to fix the problem but throughout the 2 weeks we had lukewarm water throughout. As mentioned they tried to get people in to fix it but there was not much they could do. So that was disappointing in the cold weather but were very apologetic and looked into making our stay comfortable.

It is concerning that there is no refund policy. It's a nice place to stay but overpriced in our opinion. Nancy and her husband were very nice and helpful.

South Ken / Hyde Park / Chelsea Rental Near Gloucester Road Tube Stop

  • 3 of 5

I loved the location of this apartment. It was so close to so many places, and best of all a short walk to the Gloucester Road Tube stop, and also just yards away from a Sainsbury for groceries and a Starbucks. I was very happy with the security of the building, with a staff at the front desk and locked doors to get into the unit. I was grateful for the elevators! The kitchen was a nice size. I was very disappointed that the refrigerator's freezer had clearly not been thawed in a very long time, with inches of ice that were impossible to melt, making it very difficult to store frozen items for food. The bathroom was OK. I would not advise this place for anyone with slight mobility issues, because the bathtub was up very high and I had to step up to get into it, and the shower/bath had no hand railings or anything, so it was somewhat dangerous and tricky with being slippery. The bed was OK, just very low and close to the floor, thus difficult to get in and out of. My major complaint which I think EVERYONE needs to know before renting this flat is that it is that the Tube goes right past the Point West Tower. You will constantly hear the loud rumblings of incoming and outgoing trains every few minutes. It begins at dawn, around 5am and goes constantly until it stops for the evening around 1am. Sadly, I am not a heavy sleeper, but neither a light sleeper, and this kept me up a great deal, every night, so I was quite sleep deprived by the end of my trip, and this significantly hampered the time I was able to get up and out each day for touring, and was extremely tired at night, and still not able to sleep. ~ This place also refuses to refund any amount of money for cancellation. After the Paris terrorist attacks, a month before my trip, I was reluctant to travel, yet was told I could not cancel any of my trip without losing 100% of my payments. I would think there should be flexibility with compensation when terrorism is so close to London. I also feel that the reason for the strict no-refund policy is that perhaps the owners fear if a renter learns about how constantly noisy it is, they would want to cancel their reservations. ~

Great location, comfort, and view

  • 5 of 5

This is on the 6th floor of an elevator building and has a wonderful view of central London. Although I stayed alone, Two people could stay in perfect comfort. There's a full, separate kitchen (not a kitchenette) with a full size refrigerator/freezer for those who like to cook their own, and plenty of restaurants nearby for those of us who'd rather let someone else do the work. My only concern is that there's no refunds if you need to cancel; I think if a person must cancel within a reasonable period they should get at least a partial refund; the owner should find it easy to get a replacement renter for this beautiful unit.
