Great family stay apartment
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
Great location, responsive management company, spacious family apartment
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.
We really enjoyed our stay. The location couldn't be any better -- right around the corner from two grocery stores and a tube stop and an easy walk to Kensington Gardens. We were a family of five with kids aged 14, 11 and 6. The room set up was great. We had plenty of space.
the apartment was well located for our tourist interests, modern, clean, comfortable with the plus of a balcony with a great view. Fit my family's needs quite well (seven of us). very pleased. - don neuman
Comfortable, centrally located Kensington apartment
This eighth- and ninth-floor apartment, in a high-rise building, "Point West," converted to apartments within the past twenty years, is modern and comfortable. All three bedrooms face the quiet inner courtyard and the small balcony terrace faces west. There is ample storage space for clothing and luggage, and sufficient shelf space in the two modern bathrooms, which have full tubs with showers.
The large living/dining room is comfortable and attractive. The kitchen has all necessary equipment, and the washer-dryer works (which has not been the case with every rental we have had). The management company is responsive to any problems. The building's 24-hour concierge staff are friendly and helpful as needed. The wifi is fast and reliable (although it does not reliably reach the upstairs bedroom).
The building is located less than five minutes from the Gloucester Road underground station, which is served by three underground lines providing swift service to most parts of London--a great location. It's only a few blocks further walk to the museum complex of Natural History, Science and the Victoria and Albert Museums. Kensington High Street and Kensington Gardens are a short walk north from the building. There is a large grocery store on the same property as Point West, and another adjacent to the underground station.
The only disadvantage I can think of is that the staircase between the two levels is narrow and fairly steep, a potential problem for people with elderly knees or large pieces of luggage.
All in all this is a fine place to stay in London and we would consider renting it again if it were available the next time we visit the city.
Clean and attractive with lots of space
My review is shadowed by the failure of the rental company to show with the keys to let us into the apartment. In fact, we might still be sitting there if reception had not been able to let us in with their spare set of keys and also make a call to let the rental company know that we were waiting for their contact to arrive. The meeter arrived 1 1/2 hours later who gave us a very poor excuse, and also apparently had no knowledge of the apartment and its facilities.
Even though the rental company must have been aware of our problems we never heard from them all the time we were there.
2 children and 4 adults had all flown overnight which made the situation even more difficult.
The apartment itself was clean and attractive although one shower was often without hot water, and the other bathroom was overheated and we could not find any way to turn it down. Even though the weather was cool the apartment itself was overly warm.
Everything else was pleasant.
