We manage six 'home from home' apartments in the London Kensington Olympia area. We pride ourselves on our warm welcome and the fact that we will be on hand 24/7 for any information requests or to resolve any problems. We have a full time housekeeper on hand, the indomitable Ana, and we are always reachable by phone or email. Please note that all of these apartments are exclusive dedicated full time short let apartments, they are not people's homes just vacated! My husband works for the world's foremost upmarket travel magazine and he loves to pass on any hidden gems in London he has discovered. We look forward to hearing from you and it will be a pleasure to accommodate you during your trip to London. We love our little portfolio of apartments and we are sure you will too!
NB - We send you a full information file for the area on booking.
In this uber smart suburb of West London, you would be ideally positioned for access to central London and all that it offers - by way of the Central and Picadilly lines, taxi ranks are nearby. You would also be ideally positioned for access to day trips to the countryside - maybe Henley on Thames, Windsor, or the Cotswolds - because both the M4 & M40 motorways are both a five minute drive away. And if you are an exhibitor at Olympia exhibitions you will be ideally positioned a two minute walk away!
Gratton Road is an easy walk to Olympia Tube (overland train) in two minutes, Shepherds Bush Tube (Central Line) in 7-8 minutes, and Hammersmith on the Piccadilly Line in 7-8 minutes. Central London is no further than 25 minutes away by these routes. There are also regular buses to many different destinations from the bus stop outside Olympia Exhibition Hall (three minutes walk). You can use the popular Boris Bikes –pick up and drop off (there is a cycle park the other side of Olympia train station nearby. You just need to open an account with them online, it is easy. It is also quite easy to walk to High Street Kensington and Holland Park (about 15 minutes) and from there London is your oyster. Speaking of oysters, don't forget to buy an Oyster card, as it makes tube and train rides much cheaper (you can buy them at Tube stations). More information at www.oystercard.com. And of course there are the splendid Black London taxi cabs, which can be hailed from almost anywhere, and also we can recommend slightly cheaper local taxi firms.
