“Great location, great little apartment”
We loved the convenient location and the apartment was neat and tidy and as advertised. It is small but fine for three of us, with 11 yo daughter on the sofa bed. We were out all day every day so the small size wasn't an issue. The stairs were fine, with the main challenge getting the luggage up and down. The kitchen is small so not amenable to serious cooking. Some noise from the street but we all slept well despite that. We found the apartment surprisingly warm and at times needed to open windows to cool it down. Lovely modern bathroom. Property agents were very helpful from start to finish.
“Fine for 2”
This apartment is in a good location and a good building. Bathroom and bedroom are fine, but the living room was not a comfortable place to sit (one small sofa, a couple of stiff chairs and a small TV from the 80s), and the kitchen was only good for making tea and toast - too small to cook anything. It would work fine for 2 people who plan to eat out and use the place as a place to sleep and shower, but for our party of 3 that wanted to cook a couple of meals and watch a little tv after a long day out, it wasn't great. The sofa bed was a pain to set up and put away every day and was not at all comfortable.
“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.
