Kensington location, easy access to most of the attractions by foot, wonderful views of the city.
Outside space, 24 hour concierge, walking distance to attractions, very close to Gloucester Road tube.
We found the apartment to be excellent and very central to supermarkets and tube station. The apartment was very well supplied with the basic supplies. Restaurants and pubs nearby were very good and reasonably priced. Thank you to Karen for all of her organising for us to be picked up and returned to Heathrow as well. Mark the taxi driver could not have been more helpful and punctual. A great holiday was had by all the family and would highly recommend the apartment
The bi-level situation is undesirable with entry and master bedroom on the top floor and living area, kitchen, and additional bedrooms on the lower level following an extremely steep flight of stairs. It is a week after we left and the rental has still not returned the security deposit (500 pounds) they charged to my credit card a month ago. Communication with rental was terse and essentially unresponsive. The location is good. The building staff are friendly and helpful, but the structure itself is the antithesis of a charming London flat. The apartment was clean but it is worn. The appliances were in working order but they are old and tired. The apartment is very quiet and great for a good night's sleep.
Property worked very well for family traveling between Christmas and the New Year. Location is close to Underground and museums - very convenient! Property management team is very responsive and helpful.
The apartment was advertised by the photos. Having a larger living room helped us with down time. The small room with the twin beds is small but it was perfect for the kids. The second room on that floor had a king bed but it was an okay size. The mattress is really low to the floor. Originally, I was planning on putting my 73 old mother in there but she wouldn't have been able to get up. The other room upstairs also had a king bed and was quite large with it's own bathroom.
The kitchen was perfect for what we needed and there was plenty of plates, cups, etc.
Location is the best. It's 2 maybe 3 blocks to Gloucester Road Underground. Most of our traveling was on one of the lines that left that station. The other bonus was the Sainsbury grocery store which is only a half block. It was super easy to have breakfast and snacks before we left.
Great Kensington location. Very large apartment building with all the modern conveniences. Walking distance to restaurants, pubs and the tube. The unit has very steep stairs from the entry hall area to the common living areas; proving a bit of a challenge for some of us. There is a nice balcony off the living room where all five of us sat and enjoyed a bottle of wine. No concierge on site but property management available by phone or email. All said, this flat offers spacious and affordable accommodations for your stay in Kensington.
This apartment had many positives for our family of 5. It is a bi-level unit, so the master bedroom and bath are upstairs where you enter, and two more bedrooms, kitchen, full bath and living room and outside deck are downstairs. It's nice to have some privacy from the children but this also means if your kids go to bed, you can't make much noise downstairs. The apartment does not have air conditioning, which is pretty common for London. We slept with windows open, but the apartment (especially the two bedrooms downstairs) do get warm so we kept the large door to the deck open most nights.
Internet is available in the unit, though it does not work in the upstairs master bedroom. The kitchen is well appointed with a dishwasher and a combination washer/dryer unit. There is a very convenient grocery store on the grounds of the apartment complex and a Starbucks in the grocery. The tube station is a 5 minute walk and it took about 20 minutes to get to Piccadilly Circus which is great.
The management company was responsive to an issue we had with our washing machine and had it replaced during our stay as the machine was broken. We had to use the laundromat 5 minutes away, but the management refunded us for the money we spent doing laundry.
Head over to Kensington, London’s museum quarter and the home of world class museums, bars, pubs and restaurants. South Kensington is home to a rich cultural heritage with London’s best cluster of free museums as well as iconic venues such as the Royal Albert Hall, Kensington Palace and Gardens and
A brief 10 minute walk from the apartment is the iconic and world famous Natural History Museum. The museum is a world renowned centre for research. Here you can come face-to-face with a giant T-Rex as well as the famous dinosaurs gallery. Experience the epic power of volcanoes and earthquakes at the Power Within Zone. In the summer months the outside area hosts the Sensational butterflies experience where you can come face-to-face with real life butterflies. In winter the museum hosts a winter wonderland ice-rink.
Next door is the family-friendly Science Museum. The museum caters for people of all ages and will keep parents and children alike enthralled. The interactive Garden area is designed specifically for the under fives whilst teenagers will love the Launchpad gallery and the whole family will (educational) movies love the breathtaking 3D Imax Cinema.
Lastly across the road is the Victoria and Albert Museum, named after Queen Victoria and her husband Prince Albert. Here you can see fantastic exhibitions featuring elements from art and design over the past 3000 years. Highlights include ceramics, furniture, fashion, jewellery, sculpture, photography, paintings and other textiles.
Walk up to High Street Kensington for fabulous shopping. You can find highstreet highlights such as Urban Outfitters and Oliver Bonas. Don’t miss Whole Foods Market, a large organic food store and market housed in a former department store. Upstairs you will find a great selection of world cuisines dishes in the Whole Foods Market food court.
High above the hustle and bustle of Kensington High Street is a hidden oasis, Kensington Roof Gardens. The rooftop area is home to award-winning British restaurant, Babylon, as well as a private members' club, a series of themed gardens and four resident flamingos!
There’s plenty of green space in Kensington. At the end of Kensington High Street you come to Kensington Palace and Gardens. Former residents include Queen Victoria and Diana, Princess of Wales. Today Kensington Palace is the London residence of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge as well as a museum open to the public. You can visit the state apartments, exhibitions and wander the beautiful landscaped gardens before having afternoon tea in the Orangery.
Kensington Gardens adjoin another Royal Park and one of London’s most recognisable landmarks, Hyde Park. The two parks cover a large area and are home to numerous cafe’s, the Serpentine Gallery and The Serpentine and Long Water lake. Hire a pedal boat, take a dip in the summer or just relax enjoying a green oasis in the heart of the capital.
The apartment is a 5 minute walk from Gloucester Road tube station with direct access to both King’s Cross St Pancras and Heathrow Airport. Services from King’s Cross also run across the UK
