for The Walton Apartment
by Pete Carrier, United States
"Our stay at the Walton was fantastic.
First we used Luishi and his car service to pick us up at Heathrow. This went very smoothly and I was especially impressed with his attention to detail on flights arrivals and changes. Arriving at Heathrow can be delayed but Luishi was on top of it. Called me immediately when we arrived and picked us up promptly.
The arrival at the apartment was perfect. We were greeted by Sax and he took us thru the details. The apartment was perfect. Location in Chelsea was perfect. Right around the corner was a small pub called "The Enterprise" where we went for a night cap each evening. Very nice! Also the apartment was a 5 minute walk form Harrod's and many wonderful shops and restaurants. About a 10 minute walk from the South Kensington Tube station. Really perfect.
The Walton was very nicely decorated and made us feel we were at home everyday after touring London. The kitchen is amazing. Large and we had breakfast there every morning before going out. The outdoor terrace was also very nice. I would open the sliding glass doors at night and sip on a glass of wine whilst enjoying a bit of fresh air. One other thing I thought was interesting. Despite being in the middle of London, The Walton was very quiet and serene. Even with windows open not much noise outside. I was pleasantly surprised.
The Walton is one 3 and 1/2 levels. Lots of up and down. Candidly this keeps the weight off me, but for some, the stairs may be issue. The bedrooms were great, lots of storage. The only complaint I have (not a big deal) were the showers were not strong and until I figured out to use the "emergency" heating switch to keep the hot water flowing, I took a cold shower one morning. After I figured this out the water was plenty hot.
Overall, the apartment was wonderful. Everything worked and was in good repair. Beds very comfortable. Good decor. Great location. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone."
