for Portland Apartment
by Bill Schirmacher, United States
"Very nice Chelsea apartment for two people. This garden apartment has a nice patio and good kitchen space. The neighborhood is very upscale and safe. Closest access to the Tube is a 10 minute walk to Sloan Square. The Tube is very easy to understand. If staying for a week, get the 7 Day Oyster Card.
Closest grocery store is Marks & Spencer on King's Road. It's a department store, with a very nice grocery store in the back end.
Closest access to King's Road is Radnor Walk.
At first glance there doesn't appear to be many restaurants within easy walking distance, but a little exploration proved otherwise. We ate at Cross Keys (Lawrence), The Phoenix (Smith), Ziani (Radnor),Trafalgar (King's Road) and La Delizia(Chelsea Manor). All of these restaurants were good.
Don't forget to have a "pint" at the Surprise Pub, which is located in the next block to the south of the apartment. Very comfortable, homey pub.
Used the recommended car service and recommend it. Very prompt and very helpful. Really takes the stress out of travel.
As usual this rental company gets top grades in my book. I've used Italy Perfect, Paris Perfect, and London Perfect. Great service and are very responsive to all our needs."
