My fiancé and I regularly spend weekends down in London, usually staying at The Levin, very close to Harrods. We decided to try a self-catering apartment this time. There wasn’t much on this site on The Apartments in Draycott Place, but we decided to try them out anyway. Directions to the apartment and communication with management before arriving were sound – Sloane Square is the closest tube and is a 5 minute walk. This apartment really felt like home away from home. We were extremely lucky because even though we’d booked a suite, we found ourselves in No 2, a ground floor, two bed apartment at No. 36 Draycott Place. It was superb! The front room was sunny and large – high ceilings adding to the impression of space, and the bedrooms were shady and quiet at the back. The main bedroom had a shower room en suite and there was also a full separate bathroom. White fluffy towels, shampoo, soap etc were all provided. It’s the first time I haven’t been woken up early by the sound of traffic or noise in London. The kitchen was compact, but with all the mod cons: microwave, fridge, cooker, washer dryer, dishwasher, coffee maker etc. We received a very nice welcome pack when we arrived, which included Earl Grey tea, biscuits and cereals. The living/dining area has a fax, DVD, video player and stereo system. Décor is a combination of classy traditional and modern, but with a relaxed feel. I think a family would be very happy here for a week or so. The apartment is in a lovely residential area in Chelsea, but close to shops, bars and restaurants. Harrods is a comfortable couple of blocks stroll down Sloane Street and the shopping on Kings Road is a better bet than trundling along to Oxford Street. For self catering, provisions are close – Partridges (just off Duke of York Square) for important supplies (on Kings Road) and MacDonalds and Subway are another short stroll away. Museums and Parks are also within comfortable a comfortable walk – in fact my one relief was not to have to push amongst crowds, nor be forced to sweat it out on the tubes to get anywhere. I’d definitely stay here again – and this time for the week. However, if you plan to have your last day out in London before returning home, try and get a later check out. You need to vacate at 10.00 a.m. We left our bags at No 41 Draycott Place, which was fine as an alternative. P.S. Some of my photos were taken at night.
