Beautiful and superbly managed apartment.

  • 5 of 5

The host's ability to accommodate our needs was impressive...we were stranded in Moscow because of the snow and arrangements were made by Rafael to accommodate our nearly seven hours delay. The beautiful decor, excellent facilities and a great location, made our holiday an unforgettable one. Isabella C

Perfect Place to Stay in London

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is spacious, very clean, and beautifully furnished and very tastefully, perhaps professionally, decorated. The kitchen is well equipped with almost every conceivable kitchen utensil, regular drip coffee machine and a Nespresso machine, dishwasher, combined washing/drier machine, plus also a clothes drier rack. Salt, pepper, sugar condiments are there. The bathroom had shower gel, liquid soap dispenser at sink, high quality towels and even first aid items in the medicine cabinet. London maps, guides, etc. are available for your use. There is a large screen TV in the living room and it is really a pleasure to return "home" from a day's outing and relax at this inviting apartment. The location is hard to beat. Two different subway (underground, i.e. the tube) stations within 50 yards. The street of the apartment, Queensway, has many restaurants, shops and grocery stores at your finger tips. If we go back to London, we will stay at this apartment again.

The owner, Rafael, is very helpful and responsive by e-mail, but you cannot reach him by phone. He provides you with the phone number of an assistant, who also will check you into the apartment. The number we first got before our arrival (to update on arrival time) was useless, because the person did not speak English, only Spanish. The HSBC Bank does not exist anymore on Queensway, so the walking instructions need to be updated; Starbucks is still there; Princess Court is at the Starbucks corner. The only negative thing for us was that the building is in scaffolding for maintenance repairs. This meant that the windows could not be left open (American third floor, Europe second floor) at night or at any other time when one was not there, and that the windows needed to be well locked. Alas, while the apartment front door has four locks to close, the window locks were hardly operable, and after struggling with them, with some help from the assistant, we could finally lock the windows properly, except for the kitchen. I needed to use a prying tool to latch the window because of built-up paint on the latch. The owner should have realized that the scaffolding needed well functioning window locks.

Owner's Response: Dear Ralph, thank you very much for your extremely fair review. Whilst I am delighted to learn that you enjoyed all my apartment has to offer, both internally ( good quality towels, Netflix App, Nespresso machine, well equipped kitchen ) and externally, ( location, shops...) it is upsetting to learn that the scaffolding temporarily erected about the block put a damper on your stay. Despite having informed you about it before your arrival, I fully understand your comments and I would like to offer you my apologies again for this issue totally out of my control, as fixing windows and maintenance in general was precisely the reason why the scaffolding was erected. Thank you also for your note on the HSBC bank, our branch closed for business just before Christmas and I have been out at sea for weeks over the Season, hence with limited phone access, but arrival instructions have now been updated. I look forward to welcoming you in any of my apartments again in the near future. Regards, Rafael.

My fiancée and I chose this apartment to start 2017 and had a fantastic ( but too short! ) , four days experience. We enjoyed tremendously the location and all facilities provided and were very impressed by the interior decor of the property. Rafael the owner, welcomed us personally as he happened to be in town and was super accommodating with us arriving late on a Bank Holiday, THANK YOU! Dan and Meg M

Great host

  • 5 of 5

Rafael and his team were great hosts. The condo is large and centrally located. Very easy underground access and a great walk through the park. I would stay here again for sure.

Very enjoyable apartment in a great spot.

  • 5 of 5

The location of this apartment simply could NOT be better. Everything you need is there or metres away. Well equipped kitchen, comfortable bed and very, very, very clean. Rafael's assistant was very kind and waited for us when our flight was delayed due to fog at the airport. We would recommend it, no doubt! Esteban R.

Beautiful, comfortable, safe flat in cool neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this flat. I looked at many choosing this based on pictures and reviews. Exceptional customer service and quick reply when I tripped a circuit. Great shower, comfortable bed, lots of room, beautifully decorated, strong wifi and excellent location. The restaurants were awesome and shops right there with Starbucks on corner. We easily went from airport via tube but took minicab to airport due to luggage and leaving during commuting hours. There are many choices to stay in London. This was a perfect place based on location, safe, comfort, space, rates and service. If we return my husband said to rebook. Everything is a beautiful as the photos if not more. Construction and scaffolding in other review is nothing to deter from your enjoyment. This is a very big flat. If you have long hair like me get a blowout it lasted four days! I did not need to hookup the hot styling tools Americans use. There was a hair dryer, linens and everything you need.

Our terrific location, only yards away from Hyde Park will ensure that you make the most of your trip to London whilst enjoying the abundance of shops and restaurants that the cosmopolitan Queensway neighbourhood has to offer.

Atractions like Portobello Market, Royal Albert Hall, and Victoria & Albert, Science and Natural History museums amongst others are all within walking distance from the property via a pleasant stroll through Hyde Park, where you may also visit Kensington Palace, residence in life of the late Princess Diana of Wales.

Having two undergrounds stations ( Queensway and Bayswater) on the doorstep will facilitate the access to all other atractions via a maximum 10 minutes tube ride.
