Kensington & Chelsea apartment description
Enjoy a stay right in the heart of Chelsea at the Palmerston, an elegant one bedroom, one bathroom vacation rental with an ideal location very near Sloane Square and trendy King's Road. Set on a one-way street lined with the classic warm, red brick buildings of Chelsea, this beautiful apartment features a living room and dining area with an inviting blend of modern and antique décor, a sumptuous bedroom with a charming balcony where you can relax or dine al fresco at a bistro table, a fully remodelled bathroom and a top of the line modern kitchen with wrap around windows and views of a lovely garden below. You'll look forward to returning home at the end of your day sightseeing in London to the welcoming Palmerston!
The setting in Chelsea is perfect - just moments from bustling Sloane Square, the popular Peter Jones department store and the high-end fashion shops along Sloane Street. You're just around the corner from King's Road - one of London's top shopping spots - lined with fashion and home boutiques and tons of restaurants, pubs and cafés to enjoy during your stay. Art lovers will enjoy exploring the Saatchi Gallery nearby and strolling to Museum Row in South Kensington to visit the Victoria & Albert Museum, the Natural History Museum and more. The Palmerston is also well situated for transportation with the Sloane Square Tube station nearby and lots of classic red London buses so you can quickly and easily reach all the top spots in London.
Please note: This apartment is located on the first floor (second floor American) without an elevator. We believe the ideal location in Chelsea and the apartment's historic charms and beautiful décor make it worth the climb!

VRBO Bear stayed here:
It was a pleasure returning to London, one of my 'beary' favorite cities in the world. This lovely apartment is close to all of central London but provided an exceptionally quiet place to decompress on our journey back from India. A short Tube ride took us to Harrods and the shops of Knightsbridge, one of the city's premier shopping districts. We also spent a interesting evening at the Tower of London to experience the Ceremony of the Keys. Each night, as has happened every night for over 700 years, there is a ceremony as they officially lock up the Tower. It's well worth arranging the free tickets online.
Madelyn and Phillipe, the owners are very gracious hosts and in addition to being available to answer our questions about the apartment and the city, they have a very wide selection of London and UK guide books for guests to use. As mentioned before, the apartment is on a quiet street in a beautifully restored neighborhood originally built as homes for Queen Victoria's staff. Each home on the block has a colorful garden in front and this apartment also has a beautiful, tranquil garden patio directly behind. It is a great place to spend a summer morning having a cup of coffee and reading the Times of London or the latest Jeffrey Archer novel.
I particularly liked the art in the apartment. There are several original paintings, including one of the exterior of the home, as well as a stone bas-relief of an ancient chariot and team of horses. Another similar piece can be found high on the wall in the garden patio. I also loved the marble fireplace mantel in the living room. In a word, this apartment is elegant and very well-appointed.
If your travel plans call for time in London, this apartment will provide a most memorable stay in the heart of everything you'll want to do.
