Great family stay apartment

  • 5 of 5

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

Very nice experience

  • 5 of 5

This was perfect for the six of us. The family apartment downstairs had two bedrooms for my daughter and her husband and their two boys ages 11 and 16. Near a underground station that can get you anywhere in a hurry. Grocery store right next door. Everyone said they would stay there again if we were to return to London.

You need to know that there are stairs between the upstairs bed room and the bedrooms, kitchen and living room downstairs. Entry to the apartment is from the top floor. We had some problem getting the water past warm which made showering faster.

perfect for a family vacation

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was perfect for our family vacation, comfortably accommodating my husband and I and four grown children. The living room was spacious and a good place for all of us to hang out. The kitchen was small but fairly well-equipped. We found the two-level layout fine and the stairs easy to navigate. The location was a big plus as well and having the supermarket right downstairs proved handy. The living room could benefit from better lighting and the sofas were a bit tired but overall it was clean and roomy.

Very quiet unit. Good location. Close to 2 grocery stores and Gloucester tube stop.

  • 4 of 5

The unit was clean and well appointed. Cons: No dishwasher and lots of walking to get to actual unit (the building is massive!). Staircase inside unit is not good for elderly or those with mobility issues. Close to lots of restaurants. Manager met us on time and was very welcoming. Lots of food delivery options nearby.

Kensington in October, 2017

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 7 adults was very comfortable in this property which was well-stocked with nice quality bedding/towels, kitchen appliances/cooking items, trash bags, paper goods, etc. It is in easy walking distance of Gloucester Rd tube station, grocery stores and restaurants. The Natural History Museum, Royal Albert Hall, V & A Museum and Hyde Park are within a couple miles of the flat, as well. The flat has a concierge available at the front desk, so we felt safe returning from our adventures late in the evenings. There are rather steep, carpeted stairs between the two floors with a good handrail in place. We would recommend a handrail be placed in the lower floor bathroom, as it is quite a step up to get in and out of bathtub. There is plenty of hot water. Karen the rental coordinator is very responsive, and Mark the cab driver made the trips to and from Heathrow a pleasure. (Mark is also available for daytrips to Dover, Bath, Stonehenge, Edinburgh, etc.) The balcony overlooking West London is very nice for early morning tea/coffee, or an adult beverage in the evenings. We were very pleased with this property!
