Fabulous Apartment in Prime Area
This apartment is in the heart of Central London, very close to Kensington Olympia surrounded by a wealth of cultural institutions, parks, bars, restaurants. Suitable for exhibition and events visitors. It's located on the lower ground floor of a stunning Victorian Town house, having benefited from a recent redesign. It has its own private patio garden.
The apartment comprises of a fully fitted kitchen, shower room and a lounge with a sofa bed which can comfortably sleep 2 persons. Included in our daily rate are clean towels and bed linen, clean bathroom with shampoo and body wash, simple electrics such as iron, hair dryer, a light breakfast of tea, coffee and cereals, televisions with built in DVD players in the Lounge and Bedroom, and a fully equipped kitchen including Washing machine, fridge freezer, microwave, kettle, cooking facilities.
The nearest underground stations are Kensington Olympia (District Line and National Rail) and West Kensington (District and Piccadilly lines). West Kensington has a major advantage in its location. It’s on the western edge of Central London, connecting Kensington, Shepherd’s Bush, Fulham and Hammersmith. It is best known as home to the Olympia Exhibition Centre and the Queen's Club at Barons Court.
Local business consists of speciality shops, eateries and gastropubs, with the Olympia Exhibition Centre nearby. Indeed, it is the mix of local shops that give the area its character. West Kensington is within easy reach of Earl's Court, and the Broadways of Fulham, Hammersmith and Notting Hill.
There are several pubs and hotels, including The Albion public house which is reputedly haunted. The Baron's Court Theatre is also located in basement of "The Curtains Up" bar and restaurant. The Carnival Store is a famous fancy dress and costume shop located in the same premises on Hammersmith Road and family owned for the past 40 years.
The host, Analisa, has been living in London for more than seven years and will be delighted to help you plan your stay and point you to exciting and hidden spots in London. She doesn't live in the apartment or the building. The check-in procedure is a mixture of greeting with keys or a safety box, depends on the time of arrival.

+ quiet area, the beds were good and the sheets and towels clean - and a fantastic Thai restaurant just up the road (3 min)
- the house is very run down, it was nicely decorated for the photos, but it really needs renovation. The toilet didn't always flush (the only one for 7 people! and with half a roll of toilet paper provided for 4 days, so make sure to bring your own...), the two remaining couches fall forward when trying to sit on them, no batteries in the clocks, lightbulbs missing, no kitchen towels. Dirty kitchen, with two empty containers of instant coffee (well, empty would have been fine actually, both of them had a bit of dried/sticking coffee on the bottom), and the whole house smells damp/old. The cleaning must be very rushed, only the main areas are cleaned. (toilet, sink itself ok, but don't look anywhere else in the bathroom, or in any corners, or at the window-seal, or at any carpet...)
A bit more care by the owner would certainly be necessary.
Analisa has sent us very clear instructions for our stay in her house. The email exchanges were also very helpful. The house is nice and located in a quiet area. Hammersmith station is quite near; central London can be reached very easily. It was a nice stay !
Everything worked out well with the reservation and the stay.
Our contact people were responsive and good to deal with and the house was really comfortable.
Ok apartment if you are only going to sleep there. Rather worn. Everything you need in the kitchen mostly. There was breakfast in the description, it was corn flakes and milk. Slow internet access. Short distance to tube and grocery store. Many breakfast offered in the "center" of where we lived. Interested cutting for boys / men!
Ok leilighet dersom man bare skal sove der. Nokså slitt. Alt du trenger på kjøkken stort sett. Det stod frokost i beskrivelsen, det var corn flakes og melk. Treg internett tilgang. Kort avstand til tube og matbutikk. Mange tilbud om frokost i "sentrum" av der vi bodde. Billig å klippe seg for gutter / menn!
House complies with pictures but shabby (stained carpet, chairs and shelves rickety, broken wardrobe, neglected garden ..) some minor repairs would be required. No dishwasher (damage).
It lacks a sofa in the living room (two instead of three as in the photos), after a good walk in the evening to relax all together, it would have been welcome. Few wifi speed. The bins are apparently collected once a week (that of the former tenant remained outside the house during our stay 4 days). Containers should be provided to prevent odors and papers flying. The breakfast is nothing but tea, some coffee and a cereal box. House for 7 people (one bathroom with a toilet).
Apart from its small things to improve, we had a great stay and we will return to this property.
Very well located in quiet residential area close to the subway and shopping. Would have a physical home by an official order to exchange (messages by email and phone calls).
Maison conforme aux photos mais défraîchie (moquette tachée, chaises et étagères bancales, armoire cassée, jardin délaissé..) quelques petites réparations seraient nécessaires. Pas de lave vaisselle (dommage).
Il manque un canapé dans le salon (deux au lieu de trois comme sur les photos), après une bonne marche le soir pour se détendre tous ensemble, il aurait été le bienvenu. Peu de débit wifi. Les poubelles sont apparemment ramassées qu'une fois par semaine (celles de l'ancien locataire sont restées devant la maison durant tout notre séjour soit 4 jours). Des containers devraient être prévus pour éviter les odeurs et les papiers qui volent. Le petit déjeuner n'est autre que du thé, un peu de café et un paquet de céréales. Maison pour 7 personnes maximum (une seule salle de bain avec un wc).
Mises à part ses petites choses à améliorer, nous avons passé un très bon séjour et nous retournerons dans cette location.
Très bien située dans quartier calme et résidentiel proche du métro et des commerces. Nous aurions aimé avoir un accueil physique par un responsable pour pouvoir échanger (messages par mail et appels téléphonique uniquement).
The house is very nice, located in a very quiet area close to amenities. However, ay look closer many things were failing: missing light bulb in the living room, walk to the coffee table broken, broken chair, oven and microwave off a bathroom including the toilet (while m had been confirmed by email that there were 2 bathrooms complicated ... to 9 !!), 1L of milk for two breakfasts at 9 it is little, or no chocolate biscuit, light also stains sheets, dated carpet ..
Shame because the location and the owner is more than friendly!
La maison est très jolie, située dans un quartier très calme à proximité des commodités. Cependant, a y regarder de plus près de nombreuses choses ont été défaillantes : ampoule manquante au salon, pied de la table basse cassée, chaise cassée, four et micro-onde hors service, une salle de bain comprenant les toilettes (alors qu'il m'avait été confirmé par mail qu'il y avait 2 salles de bain...compliqué à 9!!), 1L de lait pour deux petits déjeuners à 9 c'est peu, pas de chocolat ni biscotte, léger aussi, taches sur les draps,moquette vieillotte..
Vraiment dommage car l'endroit et la propriétaire sont plus que sympathiques !
We had a very nice stay in London and also in the house .... but the house is very shabby ... some things would have to be urgently repaired or renewed .... especially the bathroom .... and the cleanliness also left something to be desired ... why only 4 stars. However, communication was very good and friendly and after a phone call is also very fast missing things like coffee, cereal, kitchen towels, etc. were dropped off !! The garden, however, is difficult to see ..... totally wild .... the grill was looking after some under the heavily overgrown weeds to recognize!
Wir hatten einen sehr schönen Aufenthalt in London und auch im Haus....allerdings ist das Haus schon sehr abgewohnt...einige Dinge müßten dringend repariert oder erneuert werden....vor allen Dingen das Bad....und die Sauberkeit ließ auch etwas zu wünschen übrig...deshalb nur 4 Sterne. Allerdings war die Kommunikation sehr gut und freundlich und nach einem Telefonat wurden auch sehr schnell fehlenden Dinge wie Kaffee, Müsli, Küchentücher usw. vorbeigebracht!! Der Garten allerdings ist kaum zu erkennen.....total verwildert....der Grill war erst nach einigem suchen unter dem stark wuchernden Unkraut zu erkennen!
The appartment was good.
1 bathroom and toilet in one room maybe a bit too small.
overall service was good. Reachability etc.
The images fancier than the reality, a bit shabby, wobbly chairs, dishes again even rinsed, an opened bag of breakfast cereal something similar, a lot of rubbish outside the house, Analisa does not seem like a little suggested to be the owner, the manager or has rather for some time no longer been concerned about their own house. A new vacuum cleaner would do the floors probably good. To live in the house with 11 people, appears already adventurous. But ok for 6 persons 3 good, quiet bedrooms, fresh linen, large, abundant towels, lounge area.
Connection in many directions with super by bus and Tube.
Rating also therefore something critical because we have paid as much as 30 € per person and night, of whom 3 children ..
Die Bilder schicker als die Realität, etwas abgewohnt, wackelige Stühle, Geschirr nochmal selbst gespült, Frühstück eine angebrochene Tüte Cornflakes-Ahnliches, viel Müll vorm Haus, Analisa scheint nicht, wie ein bißchen suggeriert, die Eigentümerin zu sein, der oder die hat sich eher schon länger nicht mehr ums eigene Haus gekümmert. Ein neuer Staubsauger würde den Böden wohl gut tun. Das Haus mit 11 Leuten zu bewohnen, erscheint schon abenteuerlich. Aber: für 6 Personen 3 gute, ruhige Schlafzimmer, frische Bettwäsche, große, reichlich vorhandene Handtücher, Wohnbereich ok.
Anbindung in viele Richtungen mit mit Bus und Tube super.
Bewertung auch deshalb etwas kritisch, weil wir immerhin 30 € pro Person und Nacht bezahlt haben, davon waren 3 Kinder..
Very good location in a nice and quiet neighborhood. Very easy access to central London. good experience.
Très bonne localisation dans un quartier sympa et calme. Très facile de rejoindre le centre de Londres. bonne expérience.
