Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Kensington

2 double bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 1 to 5

This great extremely ELEGANT - comfortable two bedroom apartment is quietly positioned in the corner of this exclusive Knightsbridge garden square 5 minutes walk from Harrods . Its close proximity to the world renowned department stores and international boutique shops in Knightsbridge allows you step out of your personal front door and within 3 minutes walk you are in the middle of everything: the very best shops Armani - Harrods are there, in front of you! Another 5 minutes walk you are strolling in Hyde park having breakfast at one of the 2 cafes. Croissants there are expensive but even better than in Paris. Designed in a modern English style, this apartment exudes character and warmth and cheerfulness. You shall have a true English lifestyle experience. Located within walking distance of the 4/5 grocery shops - of Knightsbridge and south Kensington tube stations WITH PICCADILLY-CIRCLE & DISTRICTS LINES - V& A - science - natural history museums etc . You can catch at least 8 different buses going further a field. So it is a host of tourist attractions and a world of amenities and shopping on your doorstep, this home emphatically ticks every box!

Bathroom accessible from sitting room.

Should you plan to arrive after 19h00 please check with us CHECK-IN arrangements. We suggest you are picked up by our wonderful driver.

Fantastic location!

  • 4 of 5

My sister and I stayed here for three nights. We were meant to stay in Anne's Rutland Gate apartment, but when I asked about check-in details the day before arrival, we were told we had this apartment instead (two bedrooms instead of one). The apartment is in Ovington Square, in a basement apartment. The housekeeper was waiting for us when we arrived (didn't get to meet Anne as she was sick). It was a comfortable apartment, and nicely decorated (though a bit glitsy for our tastes, with lots of mirrors!) The kitchen had nearly everything you could need (only dishwasher tablets seemed to be missing). We did have an issue with the shower. We tried turning the handle, and it seemed very stiff, so we figured perhaps we were meant to use the control panel on the wall (which also featured prominently in the video for the apartment). After nearly an hour, and after contacting the housekeeper, we got it going. Ignore the control panel, and just turn the handle really hard! We were scared we were going to break it at first, but once it worked, the shower was really good. Also couldn't figure out how to keep water in the kitchen sink- a very strange plug. Ovington Square is a lovely area, and an easy walk to Knightsbridge station (or Sloane Square, which we preferred, as Brompton road can get a bit busy!). There is one window in the living room, which you can look up at people walking past in the square. We found it to be nice and quiet. We also used Saaed to drive us to Heathrow. He was a very safe driver, and very polite. Well worth the 40 pounds, as there was no hassle.

Excellent central London location

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location and close to all shops and museums. Very clean and well furnished and bright living room. We really enjoyed our stay. There are a couple of steps into the kitchen and best for those with no mobility issues. We have stayed in various locations in Knightsbridge and would return. It's a lovely neighborhood.

A wonderful homely apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is a really terrific place to rent if you're coming to London. The location couldn't be better - right next to Harrods and the glamour of Knightsbridge, whilst still only a short walk from the beautiful white terraced streets of Belgravia. Knightsbridge tube is only five minutes away, and from there you can be in the west end within ten minutes. It's also nice and close to Hyde Park, so I'd highly recommend a morning stroll through the park if you're staying here! The square is a little bubble of tranquility in the heart of London. I can't recommend this apartment highly enough!

Very impressive!

  • 5 of 5

This place was incredible! The apartment was very beautiful and cozy. This was the best place to stay in London. It was right next to Harrods and the Knightsbridge tube station. There are many shops, restaurants and grocery stores right next door. I love how cozy and homey this place felt. It was very clean, inviting and warm. The host was extremely sweet and very helpful! There are other apartments that she owns next door and is more than willing to do whatever to make you feel comfortable and welcome. She provided an inexpensive cleaning service, refreshed towels, sheets or anything needed that may have not been available. She also gave us many activities to do, places to go, how to get there, etc. It was in the center of London's heartbeat! I will definitely be staying here again and staying friends with the host in the meantime!

Home Away was a nice apartment to use as a home base while visiting London. It was very clean and convenient. The driver, Saeed, was wonderful. Anne Marie was gracious and helpful.

Wonderful place to stay in London

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful stay in this flat in London. It was very clean & in an AWESOME location. There is a wonderful grocery right around the corner, plus pubs, ATMs, and of course Harrods Dept. Store. Very easy to catch a cab right down the street. A beautiful English Garden in the middle of the square. We enjoyed walking the square to see all the amazing cars parked on the streets. The owner was great at communication while we were there. She also has a driver who we hired to take us on 2 day trips. Bath is a must see & the Cotswold's. We are only sorry we did not hire the driver to show us around London as well. The Driver also got us to the airport & helped us with our luggage & didn't leave us until he knew we had everything in order for our flight. I will definitely stay here again when we return. Thanks so much for everything!
