About this listing
A bright and exceptionally high studio with two huge windows from ceiling to floor located in the heart of Kensington. 5 min from Tube. Ideal for couples with one child or three friends.
The high ceiling makes your thoughts and imagination go beyond the typical limit we expect. You can here the echo of your voice when it is silent. This is old style Victorian building. And lovely sounds of the church next door will make all that difference.
This flat has a little balcony overlooking Gloucester Road. On sunny days it is lovely to have a beer there.
There is one double, one single bed and additional single mattress that is possible to pull out in case there are four of you. It is a good solution for children or for an additional person joining for a night or two. There are kitchen amenities, which include: fridge, microwave, kettle, toast and small cooker. There is a small bathroom with a shower and toilet.
Interaction with Guests
I am quite accessible if I am not travelling. Feel free to ask any question you like!
Besides the very good transport links there are so many places that you can go just by walk as there are many pubs and restaurants within minutes.
V&A Museum, Royal Albert Hall, Science Museum and Natural History Museum are within 10-15min walking distance towards South Kensington Station.
If you like skating one of the best rings in the City just 10 min walk away!
As you get off the station you shall see a big Waitrose supermarket offering high quality food if you'd like to grab a quick bite for home or forgot to pack something. For more unique grocery shopping experience you can walk to High Street Kensington (15 min) and explore the fabulous Whole Foods Market - a real treat for you and your loved ones if you fancy to grab some goodies to take back.
The local church next door offers great recitals ( some free) and yoga classes (£10 drop-in). And you can hear its lovely sounds from the apartment. It adds special feel to the place.
The location benefits from great transport links. It is both very close (5 min) to the Tube station and to many places (to walk) that you might have planned to visit!
If you arrive via Heathrow Airport you do not need taxis during tube hours as Piccadilly line stops right at Gloucester Road Station. It is close enough to walk even with luggage on wheels!

Great communication with the host, she was there for us and helped us with whatever we needed. The room was as described. it was clean and provided all necessities. The proximity to the tube station and the V&A was very good. Thank you!
The host was great and stayed late to let us in after our flight was delayed.
In a great location! Close to the metro. Great wifi connection.
The apartment was very clean. She also included an outlet adapter for us.
The studio apartment was small as expected, but the bathroom is very small. It was tricky for my 6'1" husband to shower.
The host told us the day before checking in that there was an additional cleaning fee because we were staying less than 4 nights, just a heads up.
Liana was a very lovely host. She was very helpful and quick to reply. There was some construction going on next door that made some noise, but she assured us it wouldn't happen again and it did not. The location makes it incredibly convenient. The Gloucester Road stop is very near and will take you anywhere you need to go. Would recommend it.
GeonCa (Liana) made us very welcome and was very pleased to advise us on where to go to eat and give directions. She had provided us with milk, tea, coffee etc. so we could make a drink as soon as we arrived. We arrived earlier than check-in time but she was there to greet us. The apartment was very clean, light and airy and all essentials were provided. The entrance to the building was having new locks fitted when we arrived but Liana came back as soon as we contacted her to get us a set of keys. A lovely host and an apartment within easy walking distance of the Royal Albert Hall.
Kommunikation war einfach und klar; Wegbeschreibung sehr hilfreich. Gastgeberin hat uns persönlich sehr nett empfangen. Alles, was wir brauchten, war vorhanden.
Wohnung liegt sehr günstig; im Haus war es ruhig; von der Straße nicht ganz, aber doch noch deutlich besser als in dieser Lage zu erwarten war.
Liana is a great and reliable host. I had some last minute matters that resulted in me checking in later than expected, but that was easily sorted with Liana. You can discuss whatever concerns with her and she does her best to help. Definitely my top choice and person to book with when in London. Did I mention the location was great?
Very good location . The place was clean and the host was very helpful .
