Federica purchased this Apartment in 2010
Why Federica chose Kensington and Chelsea
This is a very practical location, close to all attractions including Notting Hill, museums, Exhibition centre and very well connected by metro, bus, rail and road.

Great location, great flat
With the District and Piccadilly lines just around the corner, this is a perfect location, especially since you can get here from St Pancras without changing. The flat has everything we need, there is a Tesco Superstore nearby,.... Perfect!
The flat was our home base as we visited London for the first time. It was convenient, centrally located, and just minutes away from Earl's Court tube station. There are wonderful restaurants and pubs close by along with a Coop, which we loved for buying prepared foods and other necessities. Federica was always available and I can't thank her enough. I had a non-emergency medical situation and she gave me wonderful advice, which I was able to use to take care the issue. If we are in London again I hope we can book Federica's flat.
What a charming apartment full of character, books and with a quiet terrace amidst treetops!!!
The warmth of Federica pervades through the apartment.
This flat is in the very best location. Close to a tube station where you can get anywhere super easy. The neighbourhood is quiet and there is a small grocery store very nearby. Unfortunately we were there during the summer heatwave and it was very warm, would have loved to have had a fan!! But at least it wasn’t raining!!
Thanks for the note Corina, we'll get a fan in asap: London has run out of them, but we've ordered one in. lovely having you to stay.
Great place just 3 blocks from Tube stop
We had a wonderful stay. Communication was excellent. We loved the bright apartment and the convenience of being so close to the Earls Court tube station. Many good restaurants all within a short walk. Highly recommend Orjuwan if you like Lebanese food. Bolton’s was great for pub fare. I’d go back for sure.
Three blocks from Earls Court Station--super convenient!
The flat is a little smaller than it appears in the photos, but for two people, the size is just fine. It's very bright and airy, and it quickly cools down when the windows are opened.
Be prepared for a climb with your luggage! The stairs themselves are doable, but when you're lugging a huge suitcase (I don't travel lightly) up a narrow stairway, it's a challenge to not bang into the walls every other step.
The bed is a little firm for our taste, but that will probably suit a lot of people. I LOVED the comforter, though!
I just about fell out of the tub the first time I took a shower. That step down is farther than it appears. Beware.
My only real ding against the property was that the dishes were not terribly clean when we arrived. Because there is no dishwasher, it's all up to the person hand washing them, and we were a little surprised by how many things were a bit sticky or had a crust of some kind on them. And the sponge that was provided was dingy and looked gross. I just bought a new pack of sponges and rewashed things so that I was satisfied. At that point, if something was dirty, it was my fault.
You might bring some laundry detergent with you just in case none has been left behind by a previous renter. And, if you use a washcloth every day as I do, bring some extras--only two are provided. However, the bath towels are nice and large!
Location is great. Earls Court is a perfect station for those spending their days running around London. You have direct access to the District and Picadilly lines (straight to Heathrow OR King's Cross), and within one stop you can hit the Circle line.
Lots of choices for food on Earls Court Road if you want to stay close to home for a meal.
Federica and Lina are both friendly and accessible. We enjoyed our stay in London.
You’re ideally placed for London’s great museums, or, if the weather’s too lovely for a day indoors, take a boat out on the Serpentine in nearby Hyde Park. Kensington High Street’s a paradise of high-end boutiques and enticing restaurants, and there’s even a multi screen cinema. Or zoom into town, the tube from Earl’s Court to Piccadilly Circus takes just twelve minutes.
A tranquil area, Earls Court is magnificently close to museums in Kensington and within 15 bus ride from Piccadilly Circus.
The famous Troubadour has hosted names like Bob Dylan, Elvis Costello and more recently Adele, a truly emblematic local bar with live music and full of character.
Perhaps we can use two of its most famous past inhabitants to personify the dual aspects of this area – Diana, Princess of Wales and Freddie Mercury. Diana, representative of the established money and prestigious mansions, started her royal romance from her single-girl flat here, while Freddie Mercury, symbolising the outsider in search of freedom and a better life, ended his long career (but too-short life) on Logan Place.
If you enjoy “prohibition-style” bar, do visit The Evans & Peel Detective Agency; Ping, which serves up pizza and table-tennis to a rowdy crowd till 2am; and the latest gastronomic jewel in London’s west side, Le Garnier.
The nearby Brompton Cemetery is a busy place, with beautiful green pathways and many locals taking their daily walk.
