The London region

Vibrant and multicultural, London is one of the world's two leading ‘global’ cities – an international capital of culture, music, education, fashion, politics, finance and trade. On the River Thames in South-East England, London is the capital of the UK and the largest city in Europe. Everything you want to do is here – you could live in London for years and still not have time for it all!

Central London/Zone 2

The house is in the Ladbroke Grove/Notting Hill area, famous for its lively Portobello market, diverse population (artists, bankers, politicians and designers all rubbing shoulders) and the Notting Hill Carnival (Europe’s biggest carnival).

All of London’s central attractions within easy reach, e.g. Hyde Park, Piccadilly Circus, Oxford Street, Big Ben, Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace, Soho, Madame Tussaud’s, Chinatown, Covent Garden, Westfield Shopping centre. The nearest tube station is a 5 minute walk from the house, or use the 24-hour taxi services.

Notting Hill’s Portobello market is a 3 minute walk, with hundreds of stalls, antique shops, cafes, bars, restaurants, boutiques, bookshops and the oldest cinema in Britain (complete with leather armchairs and footstools!). The neighbourhood has fantastic parks, restaurants, cafes, bars, and boutiques – it’s all here!

"A haven of rest and comfort after a busy day in London"

This house was the ideal place for our group of 9 people (6 adults, 3 children) while visiting London for 4 days. We prefer to have a place where we can also cook, have breakfast and sit together in a cosy kitchen or living room instead of being forced to spend time in seperate hotel rooms, and therefore this was our perfect 'home'. The house is just beautiful and also very comfortable, with modern kitchen equipment and 2 very nice bathrooms. The living room is filled with books and just reading all the titles was already a literary pleasure. The house is located in a quiet and beautiful neighborhood, 5 min walk to Portobello Road (check out the Lisboa Patisserie in Golborne Rd for breakfast !!) and +/- 20 min from the city center by metro (Ladbroke Grove). The only comment we could make is that we would have loved to be able to open the bedroom windows for some freh air, but that's no reason not to give this house (and the check-in and check-out service!) a well-deserved 5 star rating.

We are delighted that your stay at our property met all your expectations and really appreciate your kind words and feedback. Your helpful hints too will be highly valued by future guests so thank you for taking the time to add these in your comments. I can confirm that we do have window keys and will ensure that these are clearly marked for our next guests. We very much hope to see you again when you are next in London!
