Beautiful place in an excellent location.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this flat. The pictures and description accurately portray how nice and comfortable the space is. The proximity to the tube made it very easy to get around London quickly and efficiently. Gabriele was responsive and helpful from the beginning, answering questions and offering useful information to make our stay enjoyable. Upon our arrival we were struck by the beauty of the area and how close we were to historical sites and attractions. We spent the first day in South Kensington walking the area and stopping in the many shops and cafes. In the following days the flat served as our base as we used the tube to explore other major attractions around London. I would confidently recommend this flat to any friends or family traveling to London in the future. I look forward to booking this same place the next time we visit as well. Many thanks to the Salvadoris!

It’s located in one of the nicer areas of London called Knightsbridge.

  • 5 of 5

The flat is spacious, very clean (which is so very important to us), and 2 bathrooms (1 shower but that’s okay) and it has all the amenities that we needed (gas stove, washer and dryer etc) and it’s in a quiet neighborhood. Plus it’s 1 minute to South Kensington Station! It’s really a great place! The owners are extremely helpful and attentive too. Also- it’s in walking distance of Hyde Park and the Prince Albert /Victoria Museum.

Fantastic central London appartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a brilliant stay here in Aug2018 with our two children (8, 5) for a 3 day short break in London. The location in the heart of South Ken (100m from the tube, opposite the Natural History museum) couldn't be better.

The garden flat is perfect, with everything you need, and then some. Gabriele is an incredibly kind and thoughtful VRBO host, which did make a big difference and help for us. As an example, we landed at Heathrow at 10pm after a long flight, so it was about 11:30pm when we got to the flat. And we had a kitchen stocked with immediate breakfast provisions so that we didn't have to rush out first thing in the morning.

We're super happy to have stayed here, and hope to be able to do so again.

Morgan Hill, CA

Lovely and safe neighborhood with easy tube access!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is in a great location with many restaurants and bars within walking distance. The tube is accessible within one block as well. Hyde Park is about 1/3 mile away and such a great way to fit in some exercise. The apartment was an adequate size for the four of us (2 adults and 2 teenagers). The owners of the apartment are super friendly and checked in on us several times via email or text. We would definitely recommend this apartment and would stay again if we come back to London.

Wonderfully Located

  • 4 of 5

We stayed almost a week in this flat in June. The location was perfect as it was a very short walk to the Picadilly line. It was also right across the street from the Natural History Musem and V&A Museum. We spent several evenings at the theater and it was only a couple of stops a way from there. Very convenient. The area also has restaurants, bakeries, etc as well. Several are open late.

The apartment was clean and well stocked with dishes. It was amazingly quiet with the windows shut. We kept them open all night to cool it down (very hot when we were there) and the street noise was still minimal. We had a little trouble with the washer/dryer as it's all one unit. I think that was our issue as we're not used to that type of set-up in the US. We had to line dry everything that was laundered. Also, while there is lots of room to put clothing into drawers, anything hung needed to be put on the coat rack near the front door. Adding hanging space in each bedroom would be ideal.

Gabriele was easy to contact as was the local contact if needed.

I would definitely stay in this flat again due to its prime location, owners, and the flat itself.
