About This Listing
One Bedroom Flat in the heart of Notting Hill, close to tube station, but very quiet. I'm sure it is perfect for anyone's London needs.
Once you inquire I should get back to you within minutes(iPhone app), unless of course it's nighttime in the UK. So while I don't have 'Instant Book" last minute bookings are very welcome.
High-Spec flat in the heart of Notting Hill Gate in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. Everything is done to a high stardard and will provide maximum comfort. Super fast Wi-Fi and European Super King-Size Bed. Natural stone bathroom with a bath tub and shower. Natural hardwood floors through out, and dimmer switches in all the rooms, to create whatever ambience you see fit. There is a lift/elevator in the building, so you get to enjoy the benefits of being on the top floor, with out having to climb four floors.
Full equipped kitchen, with everything you would need to cook yourself even the most elaborate meal. There is also a Nespresso machine, with coffee provided, for those who love a bit of a caffeine fix at morning, noon, or decaf for night!
Notting Hill Gate tube station is less than 3 minutes walk away (10 mins to Oxford or Bond St on the tube) and there are numerous buses nearby that will take you into the West End too.
Perfectly placed to sample the restaurants of Kensington, Notting Hill and Westbourne Grove. Just ask me what type of cuisine you like, and i'll make a suggestion for you.
Kensington Palace and Hyde Park' are also only about 5 minutes walk from the flat. Also the London flagship Whole Foods store is a 10 minute walk away on Kensington High Street.
Portobello rd market is a 5 minute walk from the flat, for those of you who like hunting around for bargains.
Large Plasma Screen TV, with Netflix available. Access to normal UK freeview, with all the BBC channels.
White towels and linen are freshly washed for you're arrival.
Access to everything, this is purely a rental, I never live here.
As much as they want. I'm happy to help out with any advice.
Notting Hill has so many beautiful little areas, you could spend all day just wondering around the neighbourhood. How many areas have a palace that houses a future King and Queen only 5 mins away?
Great access to the whole of the London underground system and many Buses as well.
The only thing i want to insist upon, is that you have fun while you're staying in London. Treat the apartment as if it were your own! have some friends around and cook them a meal. If you don't know anyone in London........stay in, watch a film and order a Domino's.
I don't really have any rules really, just act lovingly towards the apartment and it will be loving back to you!
Lovely unit! Everything is thoughtfully provided for, and the space is well designed.
Our host is very prompt and responsive to questions. It is a short walk to the Tube, and there are lots of local stores and eateries nearby.
We are so glad to have stayed here, and will return for a longer visit next time.
Great stay at your flat, Benjamin. With a decor and a kitchen equiped like yours, it is easy to feel like home. many thanks. Louise and Mario.
Fantastic apartment in the heart of Notting Hill just a minute foot walk from Notting Hill Gate tube station - nevertheless in a very quiet street. Tasteful interior, modern and obviously new. Modern + roomy kitchen within the living room and dining space. Spacy bathroom with very nice and warm coloured marble. An advantage is that the apartment is situated directly under the roof (with elevator!) which makes it bright and sunny. Benjamin is the perfect host more than helping and friendly and appreciative of the mistakes that I made (taking the keys of the apartment home...) Very very recommended.
Excellent stay at Ben's apartment. Everything you could need and more! Fully equipped with wifi, tv and netflix, modern kitchen, elevator in the building, comfy bed, great views etc.
Plus location can't be beat - 5 minute walk to the tube - then one stop to get to Wholefoods, two stops to Westfield - and the park close by too.
Ben was very accommodating, responded to messages very promptly and all I can say is that I look forward to a return visit.
Amazing apartment in a great location! We enjoyed the spacious layout and modern design. It was a great size for two people (and would be for four even). Loved the kitchen too.
Ben was very easy to communicate with. We would definitely stay again!!
Lovely flat, equiped eith everything You may need. The address is wonderful: close to the tub, circled by supermarkets, restaurant and stores (Services also). Would come back to stay There and recomend to everybody!
Ben was at the flat when I arrived and showed me what I needed to know. He was always prompt with assistance when I needed help with certain issues during my stay.
The interior of the flat is as shown in the pictures. It is a good sized updated 1 bedroom with modern furniture. The appearance, though, of the exterior of the building, including the building's entrance hall, stairs and elevator do not match the quality of Ben's flat. This will hopefully be remedied as there was a renovation in progress during my stay.
The location of the Airbnb "red dot" is incorrect. The flat is not on Palace Garden Mews. It is on the North side of Notting Hill Gate. There is a noticeable difference between the streets.
The flat is central to London and is conveniently located to many shops and services. The main road closest to the flat is busy and not that upscale. A five minute walk will bring you to more fashionable residential and shopping areas.
About the Host, Benjamin
I'm in my mid-twenties, and pursuing a career in the arts. I inherited this apartment/flat and it's been incredibly helpful in allowing me to finance my career. I've had such a good time meeting people from all over the world, and trying to help them have as special an experience as possible.
