About the property

Check in & out are flexible hours (depends on availabilities)

Newly refurbished beautiful Victorian building basement apartment with a private patio sleep up to 5 In this attractive location of Notting Hill easy access to Station, Portobello Market and the wide open leafy spaces of Kensington Gardens Park.

(This is a Victorian Style building, NOT a Purpose-Build-Council Flat)

The open plan living / kitchen area allows plenty of room for your guests and morning breakfast while the sun rises from your Private Patio and is perfect to enjoy a warm cup of coffee listening to the unusual peaceful sounds the prime location has to offer.

A quiet, tree-lined, white terraced Victorian just a minute walking distance to the wide open leafy spaces of famous Kensington Palace / Gardens. Adjoining Hyde Park is also just around the corner. If walks through the gardens are your thing, Royal Albert Hall, Victoria & Albert Museum, Science Museum & Natural History Museum are close by. Don't forget the more funky fashions and trends of Notting Hill and Antique Portobello Market, within 8 mins walk away from the flat.

Portobello is really several markets in one, situated in the heart of Notting Hill. Saturday being the day when all are in full swing. Then you can experience a mile of hustle, haggle, colour and energy. The feature of Saturdays is the opening of hundreds of antique and specialist shops and stalls. There are some talented and bizarre street performers to be spotted too.

Transport links are great in London, you can stroll away to London Bus Stops (less than a minute away ) Easy commute to Oxford Street (8 mins journey), Soho, China Town, Harrods Knightsbridge & Museums. Notting Hill Gate underground Station is just yards away.

The property itself is located on a quiet road, but naturally being located in central London without having soundproofed rooms it is inevitable that at times, certain loud sounds such as sirens may well be audible which is something my other guests have not had any issue with.

*****Important notes:

Dear guests, please note that price is based on sharing a double bed for 2 guests in the bedroom.

A £18 per person per night (minimum charge from 2 nights) after 2 guests.

* An extra fees of £25 (one off) is applied for extra sleeping arrangement if booking for 2 guests only.

Beds setting as follows:

** 2 guests: Shared double bed in the bedroom.

The apartment is not ideal for 5 adults, however, 2 adults + 3 children or 3 adults 2 children would be compromises with space.

Very nice flat

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at Melissa's flat. It had everything we needed. The bed was comfortable. We used the kitchen for breakfast every AM. It was close to the Tube station which was fantastic (make sure to get an Oyster card to get around). We were a little confused on where the key was when we came in (it was dark) as there was a bike in front of it and the entry was not through the basement. The hot water was a little touchy in the shower. Melissa was responsive to questions. I would definitely use her flat again.

Beautiful apartment, Perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

A small and very nice apartment, very clean and neat. It is located in a quiet street near Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park. We stayed at the apartment for three days, a couple with a teenage girl and found a perfect place for a vacation in central London.

Loved staying in this apartment. The location was perfect ,walking distance to train, Notting Hill shops and markets, Hyde Park and great local pubs! The apartment is cosy, comfortable and well appointed. It felt secure and safe staying here and having stayed in London a few times before it was great value.

A perfectly located flat for families with a budget in mind.

  • 5 of 5

This flat was very clean, comfortable and welcoming. The arrangements for the key were easy and streamlined without needing to meet anyone at a certain time (which is very convenient if flights are held up or the traffic us thick). The flat was on the small side but that didn't matter too much as we were out most of the time. Melissa also left clear instructions our responsibilities as guests in her home. She was also accessible by email and always very polite and helpful. I recommend this flat as a great place for a couple and pretty good for a family of four (the two boys were on sofa beds in the small lounge/dining/kitchen).
