The South East England region
London is a vibrant, bustling city steeped in culture and history with many hidden treasures to discover. The list of things to do and places to see is endless. As the old saying goes ... ”if you are tired of London... you are tired of life!” The city of London is home to Buckingham Palace, the Tower of London, the gothic buildings of Westminster, Big Ben and St Paul's Cathedral... just a few of the landmark places of interest to visit. There are a wide array of free galleries and museums that are very easy to access using the great public transport networks including buses, tubes and London's Black cabs. Why not try visiting the Tate Gallery then taking a taxi boat along the river Thames, past the Houses of Parliament to visit Tate Modern on the South bank where there are a wealth of restaurants, cafes, market stalls and street performers as well as the London Eye and London Aquarium. The Shopping in London is second to none. Whether you want to shop for luxury goods at Selfridges or Harrods, hit the high street shops of Oxford Street, the vintage shops at Covent Garden (seven dials) or explore the stalls of Brick lane, Camden and Borough markets, it is all at your door step. The West End is home to some of the world's greatest theatres with Soho, Leicester Square, Piccadilly Circus and China town all in walking distance. Perfect for a night out to catch a show and dine in one of the numerous top class restaurants on offer, from Michelin starred to one of the local gems, followed by a visit to one of the many bars or clubs to experience what London's night life has to offer
Central London/Zone 1
Mayfair is one of the most exclusive areas in London. This prestigious area is home to many of London's Museums with the Natural History Museum, Science Museum and the Victoria and Albert (V&A) Museum all in close proximity to each other.

The Royal Albert Hall hosts many large music events but, also plays live jazz in the evening in the Edgar Room where you can enjoy supper or listen to music in Café Consort while enjoying tea or coffee. Chelsea's own Royal Court Theatre can be found in Sloane Square and is Britain's leading national company dedicated to new work by innovative writers from the UK and around the world. Knightsbridge can also offer a retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city with access to its green areas and parks, the beautiful Hyde Park, Green Park and Buckingham Palace Gardens are all in the vicinity and Battersea Park is just the other side of the river with boating, café and beautiful walks. Shopping can be found at Harrods, Selfridges, Fortnum and Mason and the charming shops of Jermyn Street with Sheppard's Market and its quaint restaurants and bars close by.

"Really lovely space and neighborhood, a perfect home away from home"
This was a wonderful flat located in a great London neighborhood. Already familiar with South Kensington (in particular the Gloucester Road area) from a previous stay at a nearby hotel, I knew that the location would be perfect for me.
The flat is located on the 4th floor of a townhouse style building, and the building is very peaceful and quiet. I am a horrendous over-packer on trips and the job of getting my luggage upstairs was a bit of work, but having lived in a 5th floor Manhattan walk-up for more than a decade, it didn't phase me.
Inside the entrance is a lovely, clean and modern bathroom with a spacious shower and plenty of shelf space inside the shower to put things like shampoo, which I found very convenient. The shower has two different options--a regular shower head that can be removed for in-hand use, and easily adjusted for height and angle, and a second "rainshower" style head. Having both options was quite nice! There are lots of mirrors and good lighting in the bathroom, a sink and toilet, and a towel warmer. This definitely is the kind of bathroom you want to find in your rental!
The living room is spacious, with several chairs and a comfortable sofa (which is a sleeper, though I did not use it for sleeping during my stay). The carpet and rug in the room were clean, and the living room has two enormous windows that can be easily opened and closed to let in fresh air, as well as shades to allow privacy when desired.
There is a small television located in a cabinet between the living room windows. I only turned it on once or twice for a couple of minutes, but it seemed to work fine and there were a number of channels available from what I could tell.
The kitchen is a small alcove off of the living room, and has pretty much anything you would need--an oven, a sink, a toaster, a microwave, and even a washing machine. There were quit a few cabinets located above the counter space with lots of plates, cups and glasses. Everything was clean and orderly. We didn't use anything besides the microwave and toaster, and my partner did a couple of loads of laundry during the stay. There is no clothes dryer, but we are used to this living in New York, and hang everything to dry anyway, so it wasn't an issue for us. In all, the kitchen was well equipped and convenient.
back on the other side of the living room is the bedroom. It is on the small side but fits a comfortable full size (or possibly a double size) bed with room to walk around the foot and both sides. The room featured a relatively large double closet with ample room for two guests to hang clothes. There were also additional linens stored above the closet, which is always a nice thing to have just in case.
One of my concerns whenever I rent an apartment/flat for a vacation stay is whether or not the WiFi will work well. Thankfully, the WiFi was easily accessible and worked flawlessly the entire stay.
The building common areas are well kept and quiet. We rarely saw any neighbors, but when we did they seemed friendly. As always, we made certain we were like "ghosts" during our entrance and exits of the building, as it is extremely important to be respectful of the other tenants when renting any flat like this.
As I mentioned earlier, the walk up to the flat was not an issue for me, but it might be for some. I am young, and also very used to walking up several flights of stairs to my apartment in New York. That said, this flat might not be the best option for an elderly person or someone with mobility issues. There is no elevator, so be prepared to make a few trips up and down the stairs on arrival and when checking out if you haven't packed lightly! Again, for many this won't be an issue, but it's something to bear in mind.
I would definitely rent this flat again. The location is fantastic. There are lots of convenient stores and a Tube station 5 minutes away on Gloucester Road, and the Natural History and Victoria & Albert museums are extremely close as well. The area has numerous pubs and restaurants, and for those who like a late night drinking option, the lounge Eclipse is nearby. I am fairly certain it is open until 2 or even 3 in the morning (something I do miss when outside of New York!). It's also not a bad walk from this are to Knightsbridge, and there are also several bus stops nearby in addition to the Gloucester Road tube station.

"Everything we expected, clean, tidy, enough space for 2, very nicely situated"
Thanks for letting us use this appartment. A super one bed, with enough room for 2, very clean and tidy. Wardrobe space, good size bathroom with powershower. One drawback 4th floor no lift, but it's in a nice area, neighbours above and below very quiet, lots of pubs and restaurants within 10mins walk, small supermarkets and bakery within 5mins walk, not to much traffic and a few minutes walk to the next tube (with 3 lines). M2 Property office was helpful and very pleasent. I would recommend this appartment, very good price.
