Guest's comments: 'Really appreciated the great location! Excellent, comfortable base for our visit to London, we will certainly return, thank you!' Mr and Mrs Stratos - USA 'Loved the decor in the apartment and what a FANTASTIC location!' Mr and Mrs Pick, Caldecotte

'The flat was perfect for our few days in London - well located with just a few minutes walk to South Ken tube and Kings Road. The design of the flat was compact but had everything you could need - good cupboard space, very comfortable bed, an excellent shower and a kitchen with a decent sized fridge, microwave and washing machine. We'll be back next year! ' Joanna MacLean - Chang Mai

Chelsea Bijou Studio Apartment Review

  • 5 of 5

I reserved and paid for this apartment and then discovered I had cancer and did not know if my doctors would allow me to travel. The owner was compassionate and ready to be accommodating. I was able to travel and my sister and I stayed in this lovely apartment. It was close to wonderful outdoor cafes on Exhibition Avenue, the Sainsbury, the tube, and the apartment had all that anyone could need. London was hot, but the apartment stayed cool with a bank of windows that could be opened. The Murphy's bed was incredibly comfortable - better than any hotel I stayed in while touring other parts of England! I would highly recommend this studio!

Great location, clean and quiet. Might be a little tight for two people, but perfect for one. A grocery store next to the apt complex was very convenient, especially for getting stuff for breakfast or a late supper. Shopping on the King's Road was fun and there were lovely restaurants nearby too. Tube stations were nearby and walking to the V&A Museum and Albert Hall was easy. Kitchen could use a coffee maker of some kind, even a one cup melita would help. Maureen Warren

Enjoyable Stay in Jackie's Well Appointed Flat

  • 4 of 5

I spent ten days living in Jackie's flat during October 2017. The location couldn't be better, with easy walking access to Tube & busses. This small flat is located on the 6th floor in a large & secure block, with lifts, doorman, and 24 hour front desk service. The surrounding neighborhood has literally endless small (and very good) restaurants.

Upon arrival I was met in the building lobby by Jackie's associate Marc who took me to the flat and showed me around, taking time to thoroughly answer all my questions (mostly about the operation of the washer / dryer). He even linked my iPad up with the WiFi and verified that it was working properly. The free WiFi worked great throughout my stay, no problems at all. The tiny kitchen is fully appointed with stove, microwave, small refrigerator / freezer, washer / dryer combo unit, a full stock of cups, plates, bowls, utensils, and so forth. Lots of extra bedding, pillows, towels etc were in the storage closets.

Only thing keeping the place from being about perfect for a single traveler like myself was the pull-down bed, which when open makes it impossible to walk from the kitchen / window / table side of the flat to the bath / toilet / exit door side. But for the price, I find it hard to imagine a single traveler could find a nicer or better located flat in the whole of London.

The Perfect Location!

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I spent 7 nights (September 22-29th 2017) at this wonderful little flat, using it as a base to explore London. It's an easy walk to the South Kensington Tube station from the building, there is a grocery store next door, a concierge and is located in a very 'posh' neighborhood. The V&A Museum, as well as Natural History and several others, are only a few blocks away, with several pubs, cafes, bakeries and restaurants along the way. Location is 10/10.

The fully appointed flat itself is very small, with barely enough room for 2. If you are traveling with more, I suggest you pass on this one. When the queen-sized murphy bed is down, it cuts the flat in half, meaning if you are sleeping on the window side (as seen in the photo), you have to crawl over your partner to get to the bathroom. There is a combo washer/dryer (one unit) which we never fully understood how it operated, as the clothes often came out damp - even on the hottest setting. Probably user error, so take it as such. The shower is HIGH POWERED, with the power fully controlled. You can dial it up to strip your skin off, or keep it nice, soft and silky. Your choice. Loved it. There is a small fridge, range top, electric kettle, flatware, glasses, etc. Fully appointed for a light meal in, or breakfast (what we used it for). We only had one set of towels for 2 people, and 1 set of sheets, but I think that was an oversight. We never bothered to call for more, just washed them and dealt with it. So, for the flat itself: 8/10, mainly due to size.

All in all, it was the location that sold us on the place. We never planned to dine in, nor spend much time in the flat, other than to sleep. The price is right, the location perfect and Jackie is an amazing owner. We never felt out of touch, she worked with us on arrival/departure times and the unit was clean & ready to move in. Highly recommended and we'd stay here again.

If you are taking a cab to the airport on departure, talk to the concierge the night before. Doing so saved us about 30 pounds. And, if you like Italian food, stop in at Carluccio's across from the South Kennsington Station. Large space, great service and the food fabulous.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was in a great location. Close to the V&A and so many museums. It also had great transport links. South Kensington or Sloane Avenue tube stations and great bus connections down on King's Road. Also very easy to walk around and explore the area. I always felt very safe.

The apartment is small but as I was travelling on my own this did not worry me. The kitchen was fine. Close to a Sainsbury's and Waitrose. Appreciated that there was some kitchen essentials in the cupboards ( salt pepper, cooking oil) which can be a pain to buy when travelling. Washing powder also provided for washing machine.

I was there in London's heat wave. A fan would have been useful but as it is rarely 30 degrees in London I can understand why a fan was not in the apartment. I kept one of the windows open at night!!!

Overall a great apartment in an excellent location. I would stay again
