“Very stylish, modern, quiet and well-located studio in Chelsea”
Reviewed June 5, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

We stayed in this studio as a London base, to visit Chelsea Flower Show (15-20 mins walk) and other places in London including museums and galleries (Victoria & Albert Museum, Design Museum, Tate Modern etc) and parks (Kensington Gardens, St James Park, Holland Park etc). It is close to South Kensington tube station, about 10-15 minutes, so it is convenient if arriving from Heathrow Airport via the tube. The 49 bus, which has a stop at South Kensington tube station, also stops very close to the studio and is convenient for the V&A and Design Museum, Kensington High Street, Holland Park etc. The studio is very stylishly furnished with new furniture and fittings. It has a terrific shower in a spacious room. There is a substantial kitchen with a full-size fridge. The studio is very quiet, being a basement studio at the back of the building, so you don't have any street noise. There are large windows in the living / dining / sleeping area, which look out onto a walled area, with greenery. It is very private and secure. The studio is painted white throughout and is quite bright. There is a Waitrose at the end of the street about 5 minutes walk away. Michael is an excellent host and runs through the details of the studio on your arrival. We would happily stay here again.

“Great apartment in a great location”
Reviewed May 14, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

This was a great apartment and perfect for our needs. Close to shops and 2 tube stops. It was a little far, but we even walked from here to Buckingham. The bed (not a sofa bed) was very comfortable and my wife and I slept very well. Michael met us to get us settled and he was very nice and friendly. The only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars is due to the internet speed. It was pretty slow. Not slow enough to be unusable, but a little frustrating at times. We would definitely stay here again.

Thanks for your kind review David. Sorry to hear about the wifi speed. I checked the speed before and after you left and it was pretty fast. Must have been a temporary fault during your stay - apologies. Hope to welcome you back again soon.
All the best!

We stayed for a week in this gorgeous studio. Everything is there for your comfort and it is nice and clean and modern. We were welcomed nicely by Michael and we want to thank him again for making our holidays so easy !!! The location is perfect; very safe aera and underground just 5 minutes walk.
We will definitely come back here if we need to. Nice restaurants as well; supermarket just at the corner.
It is the best place!
Do not hesitate to book here for your holidays. Finally the bed is very comfortable and this is very important.
Thank you !

“The place was excellent.”

The location is good. It is very close to a bus stop with 5 lines, all of which stop at the Sloan Square Underground.A number of good restaurants are close by. It was clean, the bed was comfortable, lighting was good, the washing machine worked well. The building is secure and it had a place to store suit cases. Michael met us when we arrived, which was 2 hours before the apartment was ready and allowed us to leave our baggage. Any issues were promptly addressed. Note: This is a studio apartment and useable for only two people. We would use it again.

“Perfect compact home-away-from-home in London”
Reviewed August 29, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

person found this review helpful

The location of the flat is excellent - just off the Kings Road, close walk to Sloane Square and South Kensington Underground stations and bus at the end of the street. It is walking distance to the V&A and other museums in South Kensington and a short walk to Chelsea Embankment. There's a Waitrose at the end of the street and M&S a short walk down Kings Road. Very close to pubs and restaurants. The building is very secure and quiet. Michael (owner) was excellent to deal with and very attentive and helpful. The flat is very well equipped and newly refurbished - with a great shower (not always the case in London). The pull-down bed is very comfortable. I loved my stay and will definitely be back!

Just off the Kings Rd, a short walk to Sloane Square. Plentiful transport .The apartment was well equipped and Michael,the owner, was very helpful in every way. Several friendly pubs just around the area and cafes, great shops and a supermarket very close. Do try the excellent breakfast in the entrance to the nearby church.
