    Hi Francois,
    I am pleased to hear you enjoyed the stay! I am one of many who also love its perfect location. Cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, museums and so many others. You are always welcome to stay again and I look forward to seeing you soon.

  • We had a lovely time, wonderful apartment great location. The steps are steep a bit difficult to maneuver especially for elderly people. Harumi was very helpful and accessible on the phone and e- mail. Greatly recommended!

  • This flat has an amazing location. It's clean, well furnished and has everything you need to have a very pleasant stay in London.

    6 of us spent a very comfortable week and would love to go back as soon as we can.

  • The apartment was mostly as expected and the location is very good, about a five minute walk from two metro stops, several shops and a few decent restuarants. In particular, there are several antique shops in the area which are interesting and a few streets away there is an authentic pub called "The Mall Tavern," which is absolutely fantastic.

    There were a few things which have given me cause to demote the rating. First, upon arrival, the electric kettle and washing machine were mildewed and were unusable. After emailingt he host, these were cleaned and corrected within a day. In addition, the front entry and first level were littered with debris and the entire building smelled of must.

    These things aside, we did enjoy the stay and the location. We had a good time and would reccomend it with these caveats in mind.

  • Thanks for Harumi's quick and helpful response before and during our stay in the place, which made things much easier for us. We stayed at the apartment for a week. It is spacious and clean. The location is great. Within 10 minutes walk, there are two tube stations and nice shopping areas. Right next to the apartment building,several buses are running through the street day and night. But the street noise might give you a hard time sleeping through the night.

  • Nice part of Paris just out of the touristy areas, but close enough to walk into town. Fab little restaurants and bars in this area..We were travelling as a family of 5 and loved it. Beds were all comfy...flat very clean and roomy by Parisian standards and Harumi was very efficient and we will be happy to stay here again on our next trip to Paris .

  • Wow! I was initially nervous since I was the first airbnb guest and the pictures looked too good to be true, especially for the price but I was so pleasantly surprised. The place is huge for 2 people, we each had our own separate space (which is not easy to come by in London). The location in Kensington/notting hill ishighley desired and close to two tube stations and many buses run by. The apartment itself is very clean and spacious. Well equipped kitchen, wif worked perfectly, two pull out couches, cable, etc. We also got in before check-in and intended to leave after check-out and Harumi was very nice about letting us store our luggage free of cost. Overall a great experience and i would definitely stay again.
