What makes this Apartment unique
An amazing location, being able to see one of the greatest museums and buildings in London from your living room truly is a rare privilege. You can even use a little balcony to sit outside and sip from a glass of wine while you watch the world passing by at a fast pace. Not only it's an extremely convenient location but it’s also a very quintessentially beautiful street and building. You can feel nobility the moment you enter and there is no doubt those high ceilings and large areas provide a rare sense of space in London. The furniture is made of beautiful (and some custom made) design classical pieces, this is when it starts getting luxurious, the main bed is also bigger than the average and they all have an incredible feel to it. The entertainment is fantastic and the kitchen comes with all the modern appliances you might need. It’s a complete apartment and there are many special aspects to it.

Cannot say Thankyou enough to you Moe, we had a ball while we stayed in London and staying at your apartment was the cherry on the cake.
The hastie family

Thank you so much for this genuine review! I’m very glad you enjoyed every moment of your stay in London & the apartment.
You guys are welcome at any other time!
Enjoy the rest of your Summer.
Wonder setting, convenient location.
Moe could not have been more hospitable. The loft has all that you need, and Moe was prompt to answer whatever questions we may have had. His advice was spot on, and we enjoyed dining in the places he suggested. We can only hope the rest of our travels in Europe are just as pleasant!
I would like to thank you for leaving such lovely review. I am very glad that you enjoyed your holiday and felt comfortable at home/location!
It was a pleasure having you in London and will look forward to seeing you again.
Best Regards to you and the Family,
Perfect Place to Stay in London
Our family of 4 (including 2 kids) stayed at Moe's flat for a week. It was perfect in every way. The flat itself was exactly as described, very comfortable and roomy, had everything we needed, and was on a quiet, beautiful street. The location was great. It was a five minute walk to two tube stations, right across the street from several museums, near shops and restaurants, and a short walk to Kensington Gardens. The tube stations are great because there's multiple lines that go into them so you can access most of the city easily. We were pleasantly surprised to also discover that it was only a half hour drive to the airport (with no traffic). Moe was an exceptional host. He was very responsive, accommodated our early check-in, and provided delicious food upon arrival that was much appreciated. He checked in on us during the stay and refunded our deposit within a day. We highly recommend this flat and when we return to London we hope to stay here again.
Thank you very much for taking the time to write this beautiful & detailed review!
I am delighted to learn that you and your family had such a great time in London and enjoyed your stay at the apartment.
I hope to accommodate you once again in the future.
Thank you again,
Warmest Regards to you and to your lovely Family,
We recently spent four nights at this apartment and the consensus of our group (3 adults) was overwhelmingly positive. Before we even arrived Moe was responsive and welcoming -answering any last minute questions promptly. Well located between the South Kensington and Gloucester tube station and an easy walk to Hyde Park. Many restaurants, retail locations and grocery stores steps away.
The property itself is large and welcoming. One bedroom is ensuite and the second bathroom is adjacent to the second bedroom which almost made it ensuite! The kitchen is compact, but well appointed. We used the dishwasher and did one load of laundry with no problems.
A couple considerations (although not a problem at all for us)...while there is an elevator you need to go to the third floor and then walk down a half flight of stairs to reach the apartment. Moe was great helping us with luggage but keep the short flight of stairs in mind if you have any physical limitations. The second bedroom is equipped with two single beds which can’t be slid together. Beds were comfortable and we all slept well.
We found out several works of art were Moe’s. They were stunning and really complemented the space.
We travel to London as often as possible and will definitely be returning to this property.
Thank you for your positive & genuine comments. I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay in the flat! I hope your next stay is just around the corner, I’ll be more than happy to welcome you again.
Best decision we made!
We came to London for Spring Break, 2018 and the best decision we made was to stay at this property in Kensington. The location is ideal - close to the Tube, restaurants, grocery stores, everything you need. It's directly across from the gorgeous Victoria and Albert Museum. The property itself is light and airy with high ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows in the front room. We are a family of five and had plenty of room for the entire week; two large bedrooms, two bathrooms (both with showers). My children loved staying here. It was wonderful to sightsee all day and have somewhere clean, safe, and gorgeous to come home to every night!
In addition, Moe goes above and beyond for you. He arranged the car that picked us up from Heathrow airport and was readily available with any questions we had. We would absolutely stay here again, and hopefully, we will! The neighborhood is ideal and so close to everything; by the end of the week, we had our favorite restaurants and pubs to go to, and the Tube was so close, and cabs were always easily available when we needed them.
We loved our time at this property! London is such a big city and staying at this property made us feel like we were home away from home.
Dear Gillian, I would like to thank you genuinely for leaving such positive and accommodating review. I am very extremely delighted that you valued your holiday, felt comfortable at home. It was a pleasure having you here and will look forward to seeing you again in London. You simply made my day :)!
Best Regards to you and the Family,
South Ken, as it is often referred to, is a great place to while away a whole day. As well as three of London's biggest and best museums, there're plenty of other things to do that are sure to entertain and amuse everyone in your group.
Travel to South Kensington
South Kensington has a Tube station which is served by the Piccadilly line, the Circle line and the District line. There are also some bus routes that go through the area.
If you're going to be in London for more than a day, it's worth buying a Visitor Oyster Card in advance. The Visitor Oyster Card is delivered to your home before you arrive in London. It is one of the easiest ways to get around London.
If you do not have a Visitor Oyster Card, but still plan to travel around London for more than a day, buy an Oyster card at the Tube station. Learn more about Oyster Cards.
South Kensington: London's Free Museums
South Kensington is home to a cluster of free museums, making it the perfect destination for families and adults alike.
In winter, the Natural History Museum also hosts an ice-rink.
At the Victoria and Albert Museum, you can see art and design from the past 3000 years, including ceramics, furniture, fashion, jewellery, photographs, sculpture, textiles and paintings.
The family-friendly Science Museum caters for kids of all ages. The interactive Garden area is specially designed for under fives, while the hands-on Launchpad gallery is perfect for teenagers.
Just next door you'll find London's Natural History Museum, where you can come face-to-face with a giant T-rex, and experience an earthquake in the Power Within zone.
The Royal Albert Hall
Kensington's famous Royal Albert Hall plays host to The BBC Proms concerts each year. As well as classical concerts, you can also see rock and pop gigs, ballet, opera and even tennis here!
Next door to the Royal Albert Hall is the Royal College of Art, a postgraduate art and design college, which holds regular exhibitions. Look out for up-and-coming artists and designers at the annual graduate shows.
Royal Parks in Kensington
There's plenty of green space in Kensington – the area's home to two of London's magnificent Royal Parks: Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park.
When you're in Kensington Gardens, make sure you visit Kensington Palace, the current London residence of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. It is also where both Queen Victoria and Diana, Princess of Wales lived. Explore the State Apartments, see Queen Victoria's bedroom, look around temporary exhibitions, stroll around the landscaped gardens and enjoy a delicious afternoon tea in the Orangery.
Take a walk around Kensington's Royal Parks and you'll discover lots more attractions, including the Serpentine lake, the Albert Memorial, the Serpentine Gallery, and the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Playground.
High Street Kensington
Looking for a shopping fix? Check out High Street Kensington's fabulous shops, from Urban Outfitters to Oliver Bonas. Don't miss the Whole Foods Market, a huge organic food market housed in a former department store.
High above the shops of Kensington High Street is a hidden oasis, Kensington Roof Gardens. The rooftop is home to award-winning British restaurant, Babylon, as well as a private members' club, a series of themed gardens and four resident flamingos!
If you're a history fan, make sure you visit nearby Linley Sambourne House. Cartoonist Edward Linley Sambourne and his family lived here from 1874, and the house still contains most of the original furniture and fittings.
