Spacious flat in a beautiful neighbourhood
"I had planned a trip to London to celebrate my Mom's 75th birthday. My husband and brother also came along, so I was looking for a place that would comfortably fit 4 people. I found this place, and thought that it would meet our needs nicely.
We had booked a driver with London Connection. Our flight was delayed a bit, so our driver wasn't actually waiting for us when we arrived, as she thought it would take us longer to get out of Customs. So, we spent about a half hour wandering around trying to figure out who our driver was. But we finally did find her, and she took us straight to the flat.
The flat is in a very nice neighbourhood in South Kensington. There are a lot of shops and restaurants close by, along with the V&A museum, the Natural History Museum and the Science Museum. The South Kensington tube station was about an 8 minute walk away, and was very convenient for getting around the city.
Even though the unit is a basement flat, there are nice big windows, so it never felt dark in there. I was very impressed with the amount of space in the flat - which was great, because we never felt like we were tripping over each other. The walls were nice and thick, so a person could get up and hang out in the living room and kitchen without worrying about waking up anyone else. Having a full kitchen was great - in that we could eat in for some meals. There are some grocery stores that were only a few minutes walk away for anything you might need.
As some have mentioned, parts of the flat were a little 'tired' looking, but it was extremely clean, so that's all that mattered to me. The steps down to the flat are a little narrow - so it might be an issue for anyone with mobility issues. The flat had all the amenities a person could want, and was extremely comfortable for the 8 nights we spent there.
The flat was in a great location - with Harrods down the street and shops on Kings Road a 15 minute walk away. There were lots of restaurants near the South Kensington station, and we never ate at the same place twice. Hyde Park was nearby for anyone (like my husband) that likes to run.
Overall, I was very pleased with our accommodation, and felt that it was good value for the price. I would highly recommend it to anyone planning a trip to London."
