Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 3
This is a large two-stored studio at a fabulous location - Gloucester Road! No camera could capture almost 4 metre-high ceiling which makes the place so unique. Please note that the wall is twice as high as what you can see from photos.
Gloucester Road Area/Kensington is both a great touristic destination and one of the best parts of London residential areas for those who commute into City for work and would like to stay overnight. The place has everything a busy professional couple might need. It is big enough to sleep 5 people but I would limit the number of guests to 3 to ensure comfortable stay for you ( a couple at the top floor on a double bed and one person on the single bed downstairs).
Kitchen facilities include: fridge, freezer, microwave, small cooker and oven, kettle, toaster and water filter. There is a small shower and toilet. Linen and towels are provided. Complementary breakfast included upon arrival. There is no room service though :) to refresh it every morning.
Please ask about hair-dryer in advance if you are going to need one.
If you are on a business trip I can provide a colour printer and stationary ( please ask). This offer also includes wifi internet ( and the security deposit is for 4G Mifi device and internet fair use). So, you can have your internet not only in the flat but also out and about and can connect upto 5 wifi enabled devices without affecting the speed. ( Please note the fair use limit of 0.5GB per day applies).
Location is the key in a big and busy city such as London. The studio is located in the heart of the Royal, Borough of Kensington (one of few Royal Boroughs). This is one of the best locations in Europe not just London.
The location benefits from great transport links. It is both very close (5 min) to to the Tube station and to many places (to walk) that you might have planned to visit!
If you arrive via Heathrow Airport you do not need taxis during tube hours as Piccadilly line stops right at Gloucester Road Station. It is close enough to walk even with luggage on weels!
Besides the very good transport links there are so many places that you can go just by walk as there are many pubs and restaurants within minutes.
V&A Museum, Royal Albert Hall, Science Museum and Natural History Museum are within 10-15min walking distance towards South Kensington Station.
If you like skating one of the best rings in the CIty just 10 min walk away!
As you get off the station you shall see a big Waitrose supermarket offering high quality food if you'd like to grab a quick bite for home or forgot to pack something. For more unique grocery shopping experience you can walk to High Street Kensington (15 min) and explore the fabulous Whole Foods Market - a real treat for you and your loved ones if you fancy to grab some goodies to take back.
The local church next door offers great recitals ( some free) and yoga classes (£10 drop-in). And you can hear its lovely sounds from the appartment. It adds special feel to the place.
This studio has somewhat romantic feel. it is fairly quiet ( at a quieter side of the road) and the exceptionally high ceiling in the sitting area makes your thoughts and imagination go beyond the typical limit we expect. You can here the echo of your voice when it is silent. This is old style Victorian building.
