Westfield mall offers great shopping and dinning, very easy to get to Heathrow Airport (40 mins by minicab, which I can recommend, the cost is only £25).

Excellent flat, just as described. Kristina was very good with all instructions and very helpful with arranging arrival /departure.
Great location, just what we needed for our short break in london.
En primer lugar quiero destacar la gran anfitriona que es Kristina. Genial.
En todo momento ha estado atenta a cualquier necesidad que precisáramos . Inicialmente sabíamos la dirección pero no conocíamos el piso al que nos dirigíamos pero contactamos rápidamente con ella, con su madre y con Emilia a nuestra llegada.
La descripción del anuncio es exacta.
El alojamiento es totalmente recomendable, por su funcionalidad, por su magnífica situación y por el entorno en el que se encuentra.
Hemos estado muy a gusto los 4 ,tanto mis hijos como nosotros.
Como decimos en catalán:
Sens dubte tornarem. A reveure!
I booked this apartment from 28 March to 29 March 2015.
I talked a lot with Kristina Simrova by message. She is very friendly , kind and open mind. She did not hesitate to recommend me some advices during my trip .
About the apartment , I was very glad whit it because it was the first time I went to London and I came across a very nice place.
It is comfortable, big enough for 5 people or 6 and it is very clean . It is exactly like the pictures. It is also well located, about 10 to 15 minutes from the city.
Frankly, I advise you to rent it if you go to London. You will not be disappointed.
Thank you again Kristina Simrova. :)

Estuvimos 4 días mis dos hijos de 11 y 13 años, mi mujer y yo, entre los días 18 y el 22 de marzo. Como llegábamos muy tarde Kristina, la propietaria, no tuvo problemas en que un amigo recogiera la llave por nosotros. El apartamento es tal cual se ve en las fotos y no defrauda al verlo. Tiene todo lo necesario para una estancia cómoda y confortable. Se agradece la calefacción y lo luminoso que es. En la sala hay un sofá que se convierte en una amplia cama para una persona o dos. Hay dos camas de matrimonio en sendas habitaciones. El barrio es muy tranquilo y está muy bien comunicado, a 10 min exactos de una parada de metro. Cerca hay un pequeño supermercado donde comprar lo básico. Kristina estuvo siempre dispuesta a aclarar las dudas y es de agradecer su rapidez en responder a los correos. Un detalle por su parte fue permitirnos usar el piso para dejar las maletas el último día hasta el mediodía, con lo que pudimos hacer la última visita a Londres sin ir cargados con ellas. Es una muy buena opción en la relación calidad-precio, teniendo en cuenta lo cara que es esta ciudad. Gracias por todo Kristina. Si volvemos a Londres sin duda repetiremos.
Kristina's apartment was great, there were 5 of us staying there for 2 nights, and the place was big enough for all of us. She had left clean towels for us to use, and the place was absolutely spotless.
She was very accommodating in telling us how to reach the apartment, and giving us the wifi code. I would definitely come back, when looking for accommodation in London again.
We really enjoyed our stay at Kristina's flat. Kristina gave very clear instructions on how to reach the property, and when we got there Emilia the cleaner was very helpful, and showed us how to lock up etc... The flat looked pretty much identical to the pictures, and it was very well located, just a short walk to the tube or shops.
It was nice to have flexibility as well, I let Kristina know our departure and arrival times, and she was very accommodating.
Beds were comfortable, including the sofa bed, and it was clear Kristina takes pride in the apartment.
I would definitely recommend it, and would certainly start there again if in London with a group of people.
The only small gripe we had was that the trays in the oven hasn't been cleaned, but as soon as I advised Kristina she let the cleaner know.

I work and travel outside of Czech Republic most of the time and so my apartment is free for guests. It's a cozy loft fully with a terrace facing into a greenery still very central, equipped with a computer, internet, satellite TV, kitchen includes a Nespresso coffee machine. The place is very close to the historical center surrounded by great facilities and shops thanks to a large mall where you can find a movie theatre, large grocery store and many different restaurants, pubs, bars, shops and other services. Easy access to the airport. I believe my loft is a great place for visitors to enjoy Prague and their own privacy.
