Modern Notting Hill Apartment/flat

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Linden Gardens, Kensington, England W2 4, United Kingdom

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.

The Space

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.

Guest Access

Access to everything, this is purely a rental, I never live here.

Interaction with Guests

As much as they want. I'm happy to help out with any advice.

The Neighborhood

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?

Getting around

Great access to the whole of the London underground system and many Buses as well.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We had a great week end in london. We loved ben's appartment. The kitchen (full equiped) and the bathroom) were great, very clean. The location was perfect : quiet and safe. We could reach the tube station in 5 min. The main places to visit were very close by tube. Perfect for à Long or a short stay!

  • Really wonderful apartment - wish we could have stayed longer. Perfect location and great host. Would absolutely stay at Ben's again!

  • Benjamin was easy to deal with and always responded to emails promptly. I did not get to meet Benjamin because he was in LA at the time, but his assistant Daniel handled our check-in and was very helpful. Benjamin and Daniel went out of their way to let us come into the apartment early (since there was no one staying there the night before) and that was sincerely appreciated. The apartment is in a great area near a major transit hub but also within 45 minutes walk of almost everything in London. The apartment is quiet and on a peaceful street (perfect for relaxing after a busy day of exploring). The apartment is nicely furnished and included coffee/snacks. I would strongly recommend this apartment is anyone looking for a vacation rental in London. My only complaint was that the apartment could have been cleaned slightly better (although I am a huge neat freak and it certainly was adequately cleaned).

    Hi Zach, Apologies about the flat not quite being clean enough. As you know I had a friend taking care of the place while I was away on Holiday. Ben

  • Ben has been a really good host. We had a lovely lovely night in his flat. Location is quite convenient for literally everywhere you want to go in London. Wandering about notting hill is also a nice break. Overall 5 stars!

  • We were very pleased with our choice. Benjamin’s apartment is clean, spacious, well-equipped, and quiet. Both the couch and bed are extremely comfortable, and the kitchen well appointed. The pictures don’t entirely do the apartment justice; in particular, there are two high windows in the living room, providing a pleasant outlook out across some treetops and the cross-the-street buildings to the south-east. There’s one (openable) big window in the bedroom, providing a great view out in the other direction. The apartment is also is very well-located: many sights (including the Natural History Museum, the Brands and advertising museum, and the V&A) are walkable, while the nearby Notting Hill station’s location on the Central and Circle/District lines means that most others can be reached fairly easily and quickly. Benjamin was very easy to deal with both before and during our visit, and he’s a very nice guy. His place was a welcoming home base for our busy 17 day London stay. Highly recommended.

  • Benjamin's flat is lovely! A quick walk to Notting Hill Gate tube and buses to everywhere right at the corner. Warm, well-furnished, and with a very impressive kitchen. Comfortable (& large) bed, plenty of closet space -- everything you'd want. Benjamin was traveling when we stayed, so we met with Daniel, who gave us a warm welcome and showed us around the flat. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again next time I'm in London.

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.
