Comfy Apt & Fantastic Location

  • 4 of 5

Our small apt is in a high rise with a view towards Hyde Park and less than 5 mins to Gloucester metro station. The location is fantastic and offsets the size of the apt; along with variety of cafes, restaurants and two supermarkets all within easy walking distance. Our focus was the Royal Albert Hall and Hyde Park Winter Wonderland, which was approx 20-45 mins walk.

The apt has seen use, was comfortable and functioned well with an equipped kitchen, which we used to cook breakfast. In the evening you can see the lights from Hyde Park Winter Wonderland and the top of Prince Albert Monument. However, the train line is right under our front window, which may be a bit noisy for light sleepers; it didn't bother us.

Nancy was very responsive to our needs and a gracious hostess. Thank you Nancy for a very nice stay. No hesitation to recommend.

Read Why We Cannot Recommend

  • 3 of 5

We had never been to London, so choosing a place to stay in this big, magnificent city was trial and error. Kensington is certainly a lovely neighborhood, and we enjoyed being walking distance from the Victoria and Albert Museum. The apartment was a short walk from the Tube station, and even as UK novices, navigating by Tube was a snap. The Tube line, however, actually runs right outside the apartment building and at six floors up, we could definitely hear it. Because of the season, we were able to keep the window closed, but it would be a real noise issue in warmer months when one might want fresh air and sleep at night. The building has 24-hour staffing, so it felt safe, and we had no trouble picking up the keys from the friendly desk staff. While overall the apartment was as pictured, there were issues: It was annoying that while the hosts left detailed written instructions on what they needed from us (take out the garbage, turn in the keys, you break-you pay, etc), there were no instructions on what we needed to know: How to operate the washing machine, the dishwasher, or even the fact that one had to turn on a switch on the wall before appliances would function. The bed was okay, but the pillows were shameful - old, nasty and lumpy and really in need of replacement ASAP - an inexpensive fix. There were runners laid down to protect the carpeting, and while that is understandable, the turned-up edges on them were a tripping hazard. Decent tableware and utensils, but the cookware could also use an upgrade. The excellent Sainsbury's grocery store was very close-by, and overall, it was easy to eat at home if we wished. Good pub grub was nearby and a pleasant walk to Kensington High Street led to fine and fun shopping, Kensington Palace, and the Royal Albert Hall. We would not, however, recommend or choose this property again. The primary reason? The non-cancel policy, which is a deal-breaker. Having spent 20 years as a hotel executive, I consider a situation with absolutely no refund after booking to be unacceptable. Percentage refunds tied to timeframes are just and understandable, but unexpected things happen when people make travel plans. On principle, I would never have booked a property with such a restriction. Not paying enough attention was my failure, but It was a valuable lesson. While the reservation was booked with assistance from our travel agent and is tied to her email, all opinions are our own. J and E from Santa Fe, NM, USA

Owner's Response: In our holiday rental advert, we have mentioned both the pros and cons with regards to our apartment. Firstly, the apartment is situated in a fabulous location; Kensington borough is one of London’s most expensive and prestigious neighborhoods. Situated right in the city centre, and all tourist attractions are only steps away. The apartment building is modern and well maintained with excellent security and CCTV cameras in lifts and door fob access on the ground floor lobby. Our apartment is a few minutes walk from Gloucester Road tube station. Being located so conveniently close to the tube station, there is inevitably some train noise and we clearly state this on our web/rental page. With regards to our cancellation policy, we are sorry to hear you are not happy with it but it is unfortunate your travel agent did not make you aware of it, as well as the apartments close location to the tube station. Most appliances are straight forward with on/off function and dial settings which are clearly illustrated on the appliance. One of the advantages of staying in a holiday apartment is that you can communicate with the owner directly and therefore we can service the flat quickly. You had always been able to communicate with us without any problems prior to your arrival. We could have easily replaced any of the items you weren’t happy with. Our apartment is very popular with tourists from all over the world. The apartment is highly utilised due to our high occupancy rate as we believe our rates are very competitively priced for the location. With your hotel experience, I am sure you will be awared that running a serviced apartment is not the same as checking into a 5 star hotel where a last minute cancellation can be absorbed owing to the number of rooms available in a hotel. The rugs in the apartment are there to keep the flooring/carpet clean - we cannot vacate the apartment for a carpet wash each time a guest stay as there is likely someone checking in on the same day. We also don’t pretend we are a 5 star hotel hence we don’t charge inflated prices and because of that most guests do not expect 5 star hotel standards when paying low prices. Lastly, we have one kind advice to you: surf the internet and make the reservation yourself; look carefully at the webpage of the property before you book ensuring you know what amenities are available, the cancellation policy and check you are happy with the size and location of the apartment before you go ahead and book.

Fantasic location, very clean and well kept.

  • 5 of 5

This location is fantastic and minutes from the tube station which made it easy to get to all the sites. There is also two grocery stores within minutes of the flat. The flat is very spacious and clean. Nancy was extremely responsive and would respond almost immediately to any question we had. I would recommend this flat to any couple staying in London.

Comfortable, modern, close to V&A and Natural History Museum

  • 5 of 5

This was my second stay in this flat. From the window one can see the Natural History Museum and beyond that the Victoria and Albert. This trip was my first experience of stereotypical English weather (the other three times were sunny and mild), so it was nice to have a comfortable place to rest between outings. There was one minor maintenance problem, and Nancy was able to get it taken care of. I am a solo traveler, but Nancy's place would be great for a romantic getaway.
