2BR Luxury Knightsbridge Flat Close to Harrods on Basil Street

Bedrooms 2
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

A charming and elegant 2 bedroom apartment conveniently situated steps away from world famous Harrods, Harvey Nichols, and all the Sloane Street and Brompton Road shops.

Thirty year London home of Hollywood composer. Perfect for one or two couples exploring London, and overlooking Basil Street with a perfect mixture of comfort and elegance. The flat is located on the first floor of Lincoln House (in the UK this is one floor up) and is accessible via steps or elevator. The closest tube stop is Knightsbridge, and the flat is located midway between the Sloane Street entrance and the Harrods entrance. Kings Road is a ten minute walk at the end of Sloane Street. The building has two porters which are available to assist with deliveries.

Bookings may begin on the afternoon of the departure date of a previous guest. However, if you have bags, you are welcome to drop them off earlier while the flat is being cleaned.

Not suitable for very young children.

The flat has a local phone, and also a US based phone with a New York (631) telephone number which can be used for unlimited free calls to and from the US.

Access from Heathrow Airport couldn't be easier; take the tube directly to Knightsbridge on the Piccadilly Line, with no changes required. Takes about forty minutes. From Gatwick, the Gatwick Express leaves every fifteen minutes and is a short train ride to Victoria Station, which is fifteen minutes away by cab - Bonnie Cacavas.

Great apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely apartment, located about a block from Harrods department store, and a three minute walk from the Knightsbridge underground station. Location is perfect for exploring around London. The apartment itself is very nicely furnished. Beds were comfortable, big living room to unwind in after a long day. Although we were only one floor above street level, the evenings were quiet and we had no problem with outside noise. There is no air conditioning, but you can simply crack a window at night. I would definitely stay there again.

A beautiful apartment in a perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

This was not our first visit to 11 Lincoln House! Bonnie is such a welcoming and attentive host and this beautiful apartment provides every comfort. It is a luxury to have the light, spacious rooms, two bathrooms, kitchen and washer/dryer. We enjoy the ready access to transport and facilities: walk out the door to Knightsbridge station, buses, Brompton road, Sloane Street, Harrods, all kinds of restaurants, and Hyde Park for a stroll, a sit or a coffee. We have loved the early Spring crocuses, snowdrops and daffodils; the evening walk home after a concert at the Albert Hall; watching the Royal Guards exercising over the road in Hyde Park; hearing the clatter of their horses in the street outside during breakfast; returning after a day trip to Hever Castle.......really, a home away from home. Thank you Bonnie. Jill and John

When we walked into this apartment we were surprised as to see how large it was. It was just the two of us, but this apartment would be ideal for two couples, or a couple with children. We chose the front bedroom with twin beds, which were quite comfortable. As for location, it can't be beat. Just steps to Harrods, and to Harvey Nicks. Also a Waitrose, and other convenience stores. I can't comment on the appliances as we did not use them. We ate all meals out. For morning coffee I went to Paul's, just a short walk away. This apartment is also very good for elderly and handicapped like us, because it has a lift, and is just a few steps to some good restaurants. We ate in Sal e Pepe's three nights. Literally across the street. Very good food at reasonable prices and a friendly crowd. Had a good buzz. One last thing to say. Bonnie is very easy to work with and fast to respond.

This London flat is nothing short of impeccable. Anyone searching for a flat would be doing themselves and injustice by staying anywhere else. You are one-half block from Harrod's and the Knightsbridge Tube entrance. This was my second visit to London. Everyone is concerned about safety. This flat is located in a very safe neighborhood. In communicating with Bonnie about the arrangements and reviewing all the paperwork provided, everything is specified exactly you may expect. She has gone above and beyond what is required to ensure you not only have the basic information of the flat, but has taken the time to provide her newly extended family (YOU, the renter) with lengthy detail of all the amenities and the inner workings of the place. The big plus is the extra information on the surrounding restaurants, shopping, businesses, how to find things, and the area in general. One reviewer stated the pictures do not do this flat justice. You, have to see it to believe it. In an area of London where flat owners charge you an arm and a leg for each night, Bonnie's focus is on the visitor to offer an extremely reasonable charge for staying here. Really, this isn't a flat; it is a home. Bonnie and her family bend over backwards to make sure your temporary residence is the proper foundation upon which you can enjoy that trip of a lifetime. Bob is the onsite building manager and is available every single day. He would be outside every morning to greet you and always offered to assist you with any information, directions, or tips. I kindly refer to Bob as 'The King of Basil Street' there at Lincoln House. Considering this home, I would recommend it to anyone making their first or subsequent venture to London. It is spotless, clean, well-maintained, amenities to cover your every need, and a touch of class. Everyone offering any place to stay anywhere available on Home Away needs to follow Bonnie's lead. I am so very thankful for the opportunity to have had the privilege to find Bonnie and her Lincoln House home. On my next trip to London, I know where I will be staying! Contacting Bonnie will be the best thing you can do to start your London trip off on a high note. I'm limited to five stars for this review. If possible, I would give it ten stars. I thank you for the opportunity of your time in reading my review. Dr. Patrick M. Murphy, Doylestown, Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA

Outstanding location and impeccably maintained

  • 5 of 5

The flat is in short walking distance from Hyde Park, great shopping (Harrahs and Harvey Nichols) and many very good restaurants.

The flat is clean, well maintained and has a very good floor plan. Bonnie, the owner, is a joy to deal with and is committed to making your stay a pleasant one. I would definitely recommend the flat to my friends and also would not hesitate to rent it again on my next stay in London.
