Please note that the restoration of the building which caused some inconveniences to few of my guests were finished on December 5th, 2012!
If you wish to arrive or depart earlier or later than it is designated here, please contact me and we will work something out. I had to change my policy due to another airbnb user who abused the word "flexible". I apologize on his behalf.
Initially there was a washing machine in the apartment, but several guests missused it which damaged the washing machine 3 times in 5 months, I had to remove it. I apologize for that! There is a public washing machine place close by.
Parties and gatherings are STRICTLY forbidden! Thanks to another guest who threw a party and tenants had to call the police.
The patio is not really usable cause there are hundreds of pigeons that made it their "home" and it is hard to keep it clean with back-to-back bookings. So, for those of you who are dreaming of using it... I am sorry I will disappoint you!
There is a lovely "village" like neighbourhood nearby with local shops and a great local pubs. Hyde Park/Kensington Gardens is across the street,15min walk to the V&A, Natural History Museum and then from there 10min to Harrods. Also close by are The Royal Albert Hall, Kensington Gardens, Holland Park, and the famous London Oratory Church.

Very close to Gloucestor Road Underground Station on the Piccadilly line (really super for DIRECT transfers from Heathrow) as well as the Circle and District Lines and Kensington High Street (Circle and Disrict underground lines).
The apartment also has complete street security at night, with night guards patrolling the streets - so ULTRA-SAFE (at no extra cost).
Kensington and Chelsea is in the very center of London, and is the city's most fashionable residential address. The area is home to a bevy of stylish shops and delicious restaurant, you will never be short of places to dine out. Also just a short walk away you will find Kensington Gardens which is great place to go have a picnic in fine weather.
