London Apartment Guest Reviews

"We chose this flat for our family of two parents, and three young adult children (plus a young adult nephew) because of its prime location in a safe, quiet, residential are of Kensington. We were not disappointed. First, as to the location, what could be better? We were two blocks from a bakery, three blocks from a great little coffee shop, five blocks to the tube and Herrods, and four blocks from the grocery store and several atms. We enjoyed the Indian restaurant located only about a block from the front door and spent several visits at the neighborhood pub, the Clipper, only two blocks away. Indeed, our kids would often want to head to the pub for beer in the evening. With it being so close, we were comfortable having them do that without us. The proximity to virtually everything made this an ideal rental for us. Still we were on a quiet street with very little traffic. The home itself was perfect for our family. We needed the three bedrooms which accommodated the six of us well. The three bathrooms allowed all of us get ready for the day quickly, although the water closet on the lowest level of the home is pretty small. It is challenging to get dressed in the bathroom after a shower. We enjoyed the parlor or living room assembling there before leaving for the day or leaving for meals. A spacious kitchen and eating area is located in the lowest level of the home. Honestly we did not use that much. We made coffee and tea there in the morning, we cooked a few eggs and toasted bread for breakfast. But we did not make good use of the kitchen. Still it was available, so for those inclined to have a few meals at home, it would work well. The availability of great restaurants walking distance to the flat was an important feature for us. We like seeing sites during the day, eating lightly in the morning at noon, and finding a better dining option near our temporary residence at night. The location of this Kensington flat was perfect for that."
