All facilities are available within a 10 minute walk from the mews, i.e supermarket, restaurants, pubs and other local shops.
Ideally located also means you have convenient buses and tube station (Piccadilly, District, Circle Lines). It's also very easy to get there from Heathrow or Gatwick airports via public transport or taxi.

Indeed the area has been the London's hub for museums since 1851's Great Exhibition.
If you are a sports fan or wanted to be close to a park, you are only a mile away from Hyde Park, the biggest park in Central London.
Not far from Buckingham Palace, it is also convenient to get to Piccadilly Circus or Oxford Street to visit Chinatown, Soho or for some shopping.
For a more personal shopping experience you can easily walk to Kings Road and Sloane Street where all most prestigious brands have stores.

We really enjoyed staying in Jean Marin's flat. It was in a great neighborhood and was very clean and comfortable. The tube was also very close. We will definitely contact Jean Marin when we come back to London!
Booked this apartment for my family for a ten day stay and a a whole the flat is lovely. There were a few minor details which we mentioned to the host which were quickly rectified with no quibble. The location is very convenient and has great transport links to all major attractions. I would recommend this apartment in future and thank Jean-Marin for all his help.
Magnifique séjour dans un appartement au top dans un quartier idéal. Chic et tranquille, près de tout et à 5 minutes du métro (trois lignes principales)
Appartement très propre très bien décoré, bien équipé.
Très beau musées à proximité, supermarchés et quartiers animés.
Accueil personnalisé, sympathique.
Nous ne chercherons pas d autre endroit la prochaine fois si jean marin Nous le permet.
We were welcomed by our host who showed us around the Apartment. Everything was as described and in good order. The apartment was very centrally located and easy to get transport. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. thank you
Je recommande vivement cet appartement. Il est à la fois chaleureux, spacieux, calme ; le lieu est vraiment plein de charme.
Il est bien équipé. L'escalier de l'entrée est certes raide et étroit mais même avec une (très) grosse valise, la montée est faisable et vaut la peine. Et nous avons apprécié pouvoir nous y relaxer après de longues journées de marche.
Je n'ai pas eu le plaisir de voir Jean-Marin, mais il a traité avec efficacité et courtoisie toutes nos demandes. L'équipe sur place est pour sa part très serviable. Merci à tous !
Sa situation est quant à elle tout à fait correcte : le métro qui est à 3mn vous amène dans les quartiers les plus célèbres de Londres et ce sans changement (sauf si travaux sur ligne...). Hyde Park est tout proche. Il y a également de très beaux musées à voir à proximité (10min à pieds) : musée d'histoire naturelle, musée des sciences, le Victoria and Albert Museum...
Si vous êtes musées, je vous recommande la Wallace Collection, étonnante de qualité et de diversité. Ce musée n'est pas tout près, mais il vaut vraiment le détour.
Côté pratique 2 supermarchés sont à côté du métro : Waitrose ou Tesco. Pour les adeptes du Bio comme moi, je vous conseille le WholeFoddMarket de High Kensington, un pur plaisir (à une station de métro ou 10mn à pieds).
Il y a tant de choses à explorer dans cette belle ville, je vous recommande vivement de faire un maximum de chose à pieds pour ne rien perdre de son charme.
The mews was very welcoming and charming. It is perfectly situated, very near the Gloucester Road or Earls Court tube stations. The house is comfortable and very quiet at night. The small room under the roof is very small, good for small children. The master bedroom under the roof is vast and there's plenty of storage room. But if you're taller than 1.80 m, you might hit your head almost every time you move around.
We didn't cook, we only had breakfast but the kitchen is well appointed and functional.
All in all we had a great time and would definitely go back there.

About the Host, Jean Marin
Hi my name is Jean Marin,
I started using Airbnb 2 years ago to rent my flat and I am now able to offer my family and friends flats as well.
The aim for me is quite simple, being able to make sure those flats are not left empty where we are not around so some nice people can also enjoy the places.
Please get in touch, I'll do all I can to make your stay comfortable personalised and very special.
I'll be able to welcome you in person to show you the flat.
I look forward to welcoming you and helping you discover these great cities.
Cheers, Jean Marin
