We stayed at the studio apartment with our young daughter for whom the proprietors had obliged with a complimentary camp bed. The apartment was well equipped with a kitchen, queen bed, dining table, flat screen TV and a bathroom with sufficient hot water. The kitchen had all the amenities; small fridge, microwave, stove, washing machine and was even stocked with washing liquid & sponge. The unit was equipped with a video security system where you can see & buzz in your visitors at the main entrance. There is also parking available to guests on the property which is a rarity in London.
The best thing about the apartment is the location. It is located within a short walk to Notting Hill Gate tube station, where one can catch 3 lines: Central, District & Circle. Very convenient indeed! And for shopaholics, the Central line will take you to Oxford St to the west and Westfield White City to the east. Also, buses are easy to catch. There is a Waterstones bookshop right opposite the apartment and there are supermarkets, convenience stores, phamarcies & various eateries around the apartment.
Another nice thing was the welcome email sent by the Manager which contains all info you need to know before arriving, which is useful even if this is not one's first visit to London.
The only thing that could be improved is the windows in the unit, especially in the bathroom were not very tight and it got a bit draughty & cold. Wifi Internet costs £20 for a week, connection was so-so and could be accessed by 1 device at a time only.
Overall, it was a fabulous place to stay in London even if the apartment was furnished simply as the location was superb.
