Recent Kensington & Chelsea reviews

  • Ideal for a millennial couple or single guest

    "Renovated in contemporary style. Unit was clean and sleek. Small kitchen and bath, however all appliances including front-loading washer all in good working order. All needed linens and utensils were provided with the exception of dish cloth/towel (first thing I bought). Being a retired traveler, I found the low-to-floor, bed, sofa and coffee table not to my liking. Kitchen table would sit 4 comfortably. The large flat screen TV and Internet service were both good. The mattress was comfortable, about equivalent to what would be expected in a 3-star hotel. Yanti was on-site at the appointed time to meet and provided all needed information plus an umbrella to use "in case it might rain" in London. Low traffic Starr Road fronts the building. Short walk to multi-ethnic restaurants and small grocery stores on North End Road with convenient bus stops and West Kensington tube station nearby. Many pedestrians of all ages during day and early evening - I felt safe at all times."

  • Perfect Location!

    "This property was located in a wonderful location! It was definitely not frequented by tourists so we felt like part of the neighborhood. The flat was perfect for our family of 5. My kids loved the bunk beds & we loved that they had somewhere to hangout after a long day! The traffic was noisy out front but we were well aware of that to begin with & it just felt like we were really in London. We have been 2other times before & stayed in various parts & it was just as noisy. It didn't bother us or my kids at all. The neighborhood was great - just down the road were restaurants, shops & a grocery store. Everything we needed was right there. The tube station was very convenient too with a direct train to Heathrow (very handy with kids & luggage). William, the caretaker, was fantastic. He gave us lots of suggestions on places to eat and was very friendly. Thanks for a great trip!"

  • Could have easily been five stars with a few extra touches

    "The property is nicely situated on a quiet street in a quiet neighborhood but is within walking distance of several shopping areas that include an M&S, the Conran Shop and a pedestrian area with great food options near the South Kensington tube stop. A little package sharing this kind of information would have been helpful. The townhouse, though lovely, could use some personal touches like art on the walls as well as instruction manuals for the appliances. A washer dryer combo instead of just a washer would be even better. These comments were shared with the manager and he's indicated that they are being considered so hopefully the next person who stays there will have an even better time."

  • Beautiful flat in the most posh London neighborhood.

    "Philippe, Philippine, and Asem worked very hard to respond to all our needs during the ten days we stayed in this beautiful flat in Chelsea. It's a fantastic neighborhood, with great restaurants literally a three-minute walk away, which helps make up for the small kitchen. The furnishings and art are exquisite, and that always makes for a delightful temporary home. (The large landscape of Florence in the living room is especially lovely.) London had a crazy, out-of-season cold snap during our stay, and the heat in the building seemed to have been cut off (it was nearly June) but a space heater was available, so we used that in the living room for relaxing and then later in one bedroom for sleeping. The managers certainly aren't responsible for London weather! This home is inhabited some of the year, and the owner's belongings are abundantly manifest. We were grateful that each bedroom had one chest of drawers and a small section of closet empty for our use. Perhaps the nightstand drawers might be made available, too? Renters should be aware that the amenities are slightly less lavish than hotel level, with one towel of each size provided per guest, and only enough shampoo and shower gel (no conditioner or body lotion) to "get you started." After that, you are supposed to purchase your own. As a VRBO owner myself, that was a little different, but Asem made an exception and brought us additional shampoo and shower gel when we requested it, while letting us know that it was not standard procedure. American renters should also be aware that the king bed in one bedroom is not an American king, but more like a smaller queen. Some listings are specific about that, but this one was not. Despite these little details, this was a beautiful flat in a fantastic location, and eventually the weather warmed up enough that we could enjoy the outdoor terrace for coffee and dinner. Philippe was wonderful to arrange a car and driver for us to use several times when we needed to be sure of transportation for meetings beyond ordinary black-cab territory, or for transfer from the airport, and also at the end of our stay when we were moving to our next destination and had a friend coming in, so we needed a car for three people with all our attendant luggage. We also contracted for maid service halfway through our stay, and that was satisfactory. In all, we enjoyed our time in Chelsea & Kensington very much."
