We LOVED this apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous location and a host that communicated so well with us, made this a fabulous stay. We were traveling with two kids and it was the perfect location and space for us to feel very comfortable. So many things to do and eat within walking distance and the tube was so close to get to other parts of the city. It was very clean and the beds were comfortable too. Providing storage for luggage was an awesome bonus.

Just lovely... our new home from home!

  • 5 of 5

What an absolutely perfect spot. Our hosts were accommodating from the outset, allowing our daughter (spending her semester in London) to get the keys and a small tour before my father and I arrived. They answered all our questions more than promptly. The flat was stocked with all we could have wanted for cooking, as well as a bit of food and - of course - a number of different teas and coffees. So nice not to have to run out as soon as we landed! V&A and Natural History are literally around the corner, and the South Kensington tube station is less then a 5 minute walk. VERY comfy beds, plenty of hot water... I can't think of a single thing that's missed. Molto grazie for allowing us to stay in your home!!! -Margaret

Great location, very responsive host

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this London flat.

The location was excellent (right by Natural History Museum and South Kensington tube station). There also were lots of restaurants right by the tube entrances. There is a Tesco Express about 3 blocks away.

Mr. Gabriele was extremely responsive to all of my email questions, answering fully and quickly, even to minor questions about where items were located in the apartment.

The flat is well stocked with plates, utensils, etc. We didn’t use the Nespresso machine but if you were a coffee drinker, it would be nice. We used the tea kettle and picked up the decadent hot chocolate at nearby bakery PAUL (47 Thurloe St, Kensington, London SW7 2LQ). It wasn’t until our last visit that we learned you could add a croissant for 25 pence as a breakfast deal. Also whipped (Chantilly) cream to makes the cocoa even more delicious.

The half bath is in the second bedroom. The main bathroom has an opaque sliding door. Neither locks which is fine for family but might be an issue for others. The shower head is high up (somewhat unusual in Europe). The shower stall is rectangular with a shampoo rack; it would be tight for a big person. Maybe 24” deep? I am tiny and definitely stood sideways.

The flat had 2 hairdryers but UK bathrooms don’t have plugs. I just used in the living room by the big mirror.

We definitely will try to stay here again whenever we return to London.

The location could not have been better for us; also near our son, his wife and our grandson's home.

This was the London second home of our Venetian hosts who also had family in London. Thus, it was very comfortable and exceptionally well equipped. Our hosts were very kind and helpful. When visiting our relatives in London in future we would not wish to stay anywhere else.

Great accommodations in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

The location is tremendous — there're so many things to do within walking distance, and it's incredibly easy to get to the Underground for things that are not. And the flat is comfortable, clean, and quiet. Gabriele and Leonarda are wonderful hosts, communicative and incredibly helpful. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay while we were in London.
