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!

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

Great Location

  • 3 of 5

Jackie was absolutely wonderful to work with. Very responsive to questions/concerns. She provided excellent instructions for getting to the apt from the airport.

I read the reviews and understood this was going to be a small studio. I had concerns as to whether it would be too cramped for us as we were spending 9 nights there but the reviews were good and the price excellent for the area so we decided to give it a go. I knew it was a murphy bed set up but I thought there would be enough room to walk around the bed should you need to get up in the middle of the night. You really can't. If you want to get to the kitchen or bathroom you have to crawl over anyone sharing the bed. That was really the only downside for us. If you are considering this you should be aware and decide if that's a problem for you. Obviously, it's not for many given all the glowing reviews. We, like most tourist, spent most of our time out sightseeing so while it wasn't a huge problem, we probably would prefer a little more space to relax in after a full day of sightseeing. Again, the price was right and the location is great. It's doable for a couple, although maybe not perfect, but for one person it would be excellent. The kitchen and bathroom were actually a good size given the overall size of the apt.

The location is great! Walkable to many attractions and a tube station just a short walk away. We had a great time!

Chelsea Cloisters - another great experience,

  • 5 of 5

Considering the unsettled weather at this time of year (Feb. 27 - Mar. 6), we enjoyed our short visit to London, with Chelsea Cloisters as a base. Having stayed in the same apartment in 2012, we remembered the benefits of the location, and used the bus system (lines 19, 22, 11, 14) for all travels except for the tube transfer back to Heathrow - very reasonable fares using Oyster cards. We were out and about every day. I must commend the renters (and Jackie) for keeping the apartment in such good condition, during the past five years. We noticed no signs of deterioration - still a very comfortable, clean, but small apartment. We were most appreciative of the fast wifi this time, making day to day planning much easier.

Thanks Jackie, we had another great week in London, and hope to be able to return again. Beautiful daffodils in the parks!
