Chelsea: exceptional 1BR w/views of the River Thames & Battersea Park

Bedrooms 1
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom apartment with stunning views of the Thames and Battersea

1 bedroom flat with stunning views of the river Thames and Battersea Park from both the living room and bedroom. In the entrance hall you’ll notice the wooden panelled walls and hanging chandelier which set the sophisticated tone for the rest of the home. Step into the sitting room and feel your toes against the plush, red rug which lies before the large double sofa (it folds into a sofa bed for guests). Recline and admire the rose bouquet which sits on the fireplace, or the red brocade curtain drapes. Find the lever along the wood panelled wall until it slides to reveal a hidden kitchen, complete with super-slick chrome fixtures and modern appliances. Head into the master bedroom where a muted, teal wallpaper will lull you into a sense of calm. Relax on the king size bed beside the stylish, industrial radiator, and watch the wall-mounted television, or pamper yourself before the floor-ceiling mirrors. Next door in the brand new shower room, enjoy a luxurious power-shower while a fluffy towel heats on the shiny chrome rack.

My friend and I stayed in this charming, and perfectly appointed flat for 5 days and we could not have been more happy there. It is so close to the tube (a short 15 minute walk), and loads of shopping and restaurants on King Street. Jose met us, took our bags up in the lift, and gave us the ABC's of the flat. He was wonderful. The location is so perfect, right on the Thames. If you are in London and are looking for a perfect place, this is it.

Enjoyed our stay at this cosy little flat

  • 4 of 5

The location is great, the view lovely and the flat is just as pictured/described. Jose met us at the flat upon arrival which was great, the fruit, chocolate and wine was a lovely touch. We enjoyed our stay, however the weather was very hot during our entire stay and the flat was very hot too. Jose did provide a fan - which was really all he could do! If I travel to London again in the summer I will look for a flat with air conditioning.

As they say ..... location, location, location! You can't do much better than this flat for being in close proximity to so many interesting places in London. My husband and I almost don't want to reveal what a gem this place is but if you are looking for an authentic London experience with a neighborhood feel - this is it. Pictures of flat are true to form (with exception of a little wear to living room and bedroom rugs). Everything is laid out to be efficient and luxurious and it doesn't disappoint. We visited London for 10 days and found the flat close to tube, rail, bus, cab and water taxi transport. We are walkers and the neighborhood is filled with gorgeous and historical locations. Battersea Park, or the view from the window, is stunning and probably one of the most enchanting places we have ever visited. There were a number of charming pubs and specialty stores in the Battersea area. We highly recommend The Prince Albert Pub and Bayley and Sage for top notch cheese, produce, pastries and alcohol. For everyday needs - Waitrose on High Street or Tesco on Royal Hospital Road were close and convenient. Chelsea Physics Garden, a five-minute walk, was amazing and the tour guide, memorable and knowledgeable. As an aside, our visit coincided with the Chelsea Flower Show. A block from the flat my husband snapped a photo of the Queen in her car on her way to its opening. It was a thrill and definitely a moment to remember for us! Jose, the gentleman who greeted us at the flat, was warm, professional and a pleasure to interact with. Would definitely check availability of this rental FIRST when returning to London.

Comfortable and central

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is comfortable and central. Close to transport and restaurants. The view of the river was restful. Wi-fi was not working during our stay but that was not the fault of the owner.

Charming, perfect for my daughter and I for a week

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I had an amazing week in this absolutely beautiful, perfectly appointed apartment. It was fantastic to open up the windows and enjoy morning coffee with the Thames just right in front of us. Jose greeted us, showed us everything, and was just sweet. Location was perfect. A few blocks behind us- loads of great shops and eateries. Bus connections were extremely close, and we never waited more than five minutes to get to any part of the city. The apartment is perfect for a couple, or a couple with 1-2 smaller children. It may be a bit tight for two couples, but could work if you're really good friends! Overall, we would highly recommend the Chelsea apartment, and wouldn't hesitate to reserve again on our next visit! Thank you for your hospitality, Jose & Claudia!

Nice little place in a great neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This apartment may be relatively small, but it's well put together. Good design and amenities stocked make it a great choice for a worry-free stay in London. Great view to the park, only if it was a little bit further away from the traffic noise, would have made it ideal. All in all, we liked it and will stay again if travel take us back to London.

Car: not necessary

Traditionally a haunt for the London bohemia, Chelsea is now one of the city’s most affluent areas, with wide, elegant boulevards of period properties. Take a trip to King’s Road and Sloane Square and Avenue, the crown jewel of London haute-couture. In times past it was also a haven to artists, scientists, and many other influential people.

Chelsea was originally known as the “village of palaces” in the 17th Century, the only residents being those in palatial manor houses. Residents included Henry VIII, Sir Thomas More, Elizabeth I, the Duke of Monmouth and the Duke of Beaufort.

On Embankment Gardens’ doorstep you’ll of course find the upscale Chelsea Embankment, with its wide view of the Thames and the elegant Ranelagh Gardens. Further north, explore the shopping delights of King’s Road, and the world famous museums of South Kensington. Central London is accessible in just 20 minutes via the nearby Sloane Square underground station.
