I love this neighbourhood as it is very easy to get to central London such as Marble Arch, Oxford street etc, Nothing Hill and Portobello road are a walk away. 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).
White City and Wood Lane tube stations are very close, a bus stop is right in front of the building.

Smoking on the balcony please and no parties are allowed to respect our neighbours, kindly no arrivals after 10 pm, my cleaning lady can't get public transport to get home after time. Other then that have a great time!
Kristina provided great information and preparation for our stay. Her guide book to the area was great. Although a little out of the main fray -- which was a positive after busy and noisy day-- it was easy to connect to both the City Line and Central Line.
Kristina was a terrific hostess! She was in contact with me several weeks before our arrival and made sure we were taken care of upon arrival. She was extremely helpful in every way. We loved her flat, it was in a great location and had all the amenities that we needed!
I am extremely grateful to Kristina for the favours we received. We were allowed to check in early and check out late to best suit our flight timings.
The place was just as described. In beautiful n quite neighbourhood, lovely and bright apartment. Found everything we needed for a pleasant stay at the apartment. Bus stops and shops a short walk away.
Thanks for allowing us to have a perfect time.
The host canceled this reservation the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
The flat is located 10 min walk from White City underground station. It was farther out of town than I expected. The flat is good- spacious, clean, great wifi. There is a mini market around the corner from the flat for groceries snacks and open until 11 pm. We were surprised when we arrived because the area looked run down and maybe not best place for three women. Don't let looks deceive. Once inside it was nice and quiet and safe. My sister stays at Airnb and used to host leaving lots of instructions on how to work things like temperature, underground, microwave etc. Maid was helpful when we arrived but she was new to area and wasn't as informed. Kristina was responsive to text if questions. However host needs to know that some of us unplug and don't check email while on vacation. She had sent email but I was not checking. Christies car service was 23 lbs to Heathrow. Right next to underground and you can make reservations. If you want to be out of London hustle this is good place. However- if you want to be in the action and ability to walk out and get food, shop the flat isn't right location. I should have asked more questions because I thought it was closer to town. All in all a good experience.
Kristina was quick to respond to any questions, extremely helpful as we made our way to London, and accommodating to all of our needs. Her housekeeper met us when we checked in, there were no issues, the place was clean and well kept, and we were able to carry our luggage to the tube to get back to Heathrow. Recommended if you are looking for reasonable accommodation in London.
very nice apartment, location great, very close to westfield mall and the tube station.
we had a problem with the washing machine. kristina respond at the same day.

About the Host, Kristina
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 furnished with a terrace facing into a greenery yet very central, satellite TV, high-speed internet, fully equipped kitchen. The place is close to the historical center surrounded by great facilities and shops thanks to a large mall located close by where you can find a movie theatre, TESCO and M&S supermarkets 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 busy Prague and peaceful place to come back to every evening after a long day of sightseeing or other activities.
