Top floor of a grand Victorian building with a lift. Bright and airy inside. Kensington and Notting Hill are on your doorstep. Many fantastic restaurants within 10 minutes walk. Hyde Park and Kensington Palace Gardens close by for your enjoyment.

The space

High-Spec one bedroom flat in the heart of Notting Hill Gate in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. Fast Wi-Fi and European Super King-Size Bed. Natural stone bathroom with a bath tub and shower. Natural hardwood floors through out the flat. Dimmer switches in all the rooms, to create whatever mood you see fit. There's 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's a Nespresso machine, with coffee provided for those, who like me wake up in the throws of caffeine withdrawal!

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 as well.

Perfectly placed to sample the restaurants of Kensington, Notting Hill and Westbourne Grove. Just tell me what type of cuisine you like, and i'll give you the best suggestions I can think of.

Kensington Palace and Hyde Park are only about 5 minutes walk from the flat. The London flagship Whole Foods store is a 10 minute walk away on Kensington High Street. Pricey....but worth it!

Portobello Rd market is a 5 - 10 minute walk from the flat. Perfect for those of you who like hunting around for strange items.

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. You can use everything in the flat, as this is purely a rental, I never live here.

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 (which one hopes is respectfully) have some friends around and cook them dinner (no more than 4 people in the flat though, and no parties). Any gatherings should be over by midnight. If you don't know anyone in London........stay in, watch a film and order a Domino's.

Ben's flat is just great. A short from lively Notting Hill Road. Yet on a quiet street. It makes for a wonderful spot from which to enjoy London. Ben is a great host and everything was as advertised. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

We stayed here for two weeks at the beginning of July. Everything was as advertised and we were very comfortable and happy for our trip. There are several grocery stores within walking distance, and a range of restaurants. We did not cook much except breakfast, but the kitchen was well-appointed with everything we needed. The tube station (Notting Hill Gate) is very close. Comfortable bed and furniture, really spacious bathroom, and an elevator to greet you at the end of a long day.

The flat was fantastic: location; layout; amenties. The kitchen was fun to cook in. The bed was comfy and everything was well provisioned. We stay in apartments all over Europe and this one rates at the top. The lift was a gift at the end of day walking all around London! Would definitely select again. Bakeries; bookstore ; 'grocery and hair salons within a block and Underground with 3 lines within 3 blocks.

We found Ben's flat perfect for two people. Neat and clean as well as being attractively furnished. Everything that we needed was there and we were able to save by getting fresh dinners from Marks & Spencer (one tube stop away) and cooking them at the apartment. Located on a very quiet street, but only three blocks from the Tube Circle Line. Easy to get to all of Central London. The elevator was a plus for the fifth floor and getting groceries upstairs. Benjamin was very accommodating and arranged extra cleaning service. The washer/dryer meant not having to pack very much. The place was bright and cheerful. We stayed there for three weeks and really got to see London.

More than comfortable, Ben's flat is contemporary, stylish and easy to live in... with an easy-access lift to the top floor the flat was light, bright, great to hang out in and just a good a base to explore the area... we'll be back... ;-)

I'm an actor living in London. I love staying in Airbnb's around the world, and would be delighted to welcome you to London if you choose to rent mine. I won't pretend that the income is irrelevant, but honestly, one of the best parts of renting out a flat in this way is getting to meet so many great people from all over the world.
