Booking.

The studio is totally independent but physically part of our family home in Kensington which has been owned by the family since 1961! As such it is only reasonable that we wish to know something about people wishing to stay here – put yourself in the same place. We always ask for ID and proof of address before accepting a booking. This is now needed for London tourism data, security and our personal reasons. In return, you can have a very large and comfortable studio at a very low rate in one of the nicest urban locations in the world. The choice is yours. You can contact me on daniel@loneur.com

About Daniel Kaminski

I am a professional Chartered Accountant who trained with KPMG, one of the world's leading firms.

I now have my own business advising companies investing in Spain. We have always had a house in central London, as well as Madrid for a while. We love travel, music, opera, food, horses, etc. I spend quite a lot of time travelling to Spain.

Daniel Kaminski purchased this apartment in 1961

Why Daniel Kaminski chose Kensington

This is a unique property which has been owned by our family since 1961.

It is a wonderful and very large late Victorian house which still has many original features.

We have carried out much restoration work to maintain the original features, but also to make it work more practically. We have a large rear garden. At the front of the house there are three lovely, mature olive trees screening the studio flat and lots of lavender.

What makes this apartment unique

This is a quiet oasis and refuge in central London, and within easy reach of some of London's most beautiful parks and squares.

The area is also full of restaurants, museums, shops and many other cultural, leisure and sports facilities.

We enjoy excellent transport links to all parts of London, as well as trains to Gatwick Airport, and coaches to Oxford and Windsor!

Notes:
The studio is totally self-contained but as the owners live next door we can supply most things in an emergency and we try to help as much as possible. There is no security problem at the studio or in the area as there are many families with young children around us. Obviously you need to lock doors and windows at night or when you go out - like anywhere else. The two best bus routes into central London - Piccadilly, Oxford Street, Hyde Park and Trafalgar Square - pass at the top of our road! This is also excellent accommodation for exhibitors and visitors to OLYMPIA EXHIBITION CENTER.

Great location, great access to London via public transportation

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in Daniel's lovely studio. It is a large and comfortable studio with everything needed to feel at home. The kitchen is well-stocked, and there are lots of brochures and books about London to consult. Both the subway and bus system are very close and easily accessible. We were there in the winter so the heating was important and kept us comfortable. We would love to go back!

Kensington Garden Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Daniel was a wonderful host and kept in contact to make sure everything was going well. He was extremely helpful in how to get around the city. The apartment is close to a major bus line, the Olympia Train station, grocery stores, restaurants, and a coffee shop. The spacious garden apartment was very clean and felt like "home." I loved my time here and would come back again if I get back to London.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This studio was the perfect place for us to stay during our one week vacation in London. Daniel is a gracious host, very friendly and stayed in touch with us from the very start, including instructions, recommendations and answering any questions we had. The place is very well furnished, had everything we needed. The location was perfect, too: very close to the train and bus stations. Don’t forget to check out the Blue Corner Cafe which is about five minutes walking distance from the studio.

We would rebook this place without hesitation if ever we come back to London!

London Shops and Shows

  • 5 of 5

We have returned to stay at least once a year for the past 10 years The flat is well maintained and suits our needs in London. Different nearby buses go directly to West End shops and to Theatres or to Portobello Market. The flat is very near to Olympia Overground station.

We certainly hope to return again in 2018

A beautiful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our June visit was our second time in the appartment. We liked it a lot the first time we stayed there, which was two years ago, so we came back this summer. The appartment is very cosy, spacious, clean and very nicely furnished, situated in a lovely neighbourhood. We were very warmy welcomed, the owner is very friendly, hospitable and helpful. Location is excellent, the appartment is situated between Kensington Olympia and High Street Kensington.The bus stop is only a couple of minutes away, down a quiet and nice street. We usually took buses number 9 or 10 from High Street Kensington as they take you right to the very centre of London. And besides, one can enjoy sightseeing already on the bus. Appartment is well equipped, it has a nice kitchen so you can do meals in the studio. Sainsbury's local, a well equipped shop is just down the street which is very conveniant. We hope to come back soon!

The perfect studio for shopping, theatre, and Olympia Exhibitions ! Rock bottom rates for Central London (let alone Kensington).
Do not rent a poky small flat on the edge of central London when you can stay at our very comfortable and large flat in Kensington - near Holland Park. We encourage long stays - 2 weeks plus with very special rates.

Booking.
The studio is totally independent but physically part of our family home in Kensington which has been owned by the family since 1961!
