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.

This apartment is in a very pretty location - directly across from Kensington Gardens. There are bus stops almost directly in front of the building. There is also a public bike stand just inside the park, and it is a pleasant walk directly across the park to the north side, where there is more public transportation. The local tube stops are a few blocks away, about 10 mins walk, so the bus is easier. But when we left, we walked down Gloucester Rd. and took the tube directly to the Heathrow terminal, and that was very convenient.
The apartment is very close to Kensington High Street, which has many shops and restaurants.
Makis was very prompt in communication and kindly sent a list of local information about restaurants, etc. He had someone waiting at the apartment to let us in when we arrived, which we appreciated very much.
The apartment is compact. The sofa bed was surprisingly comfortable, at least for one person, and there is a small galley kitchen and a table for 4. Some recent updating of the bathrooms is very nice, and it would be great to have a bit more updating in the rest of the apartment. The terrace is a nice size - along with the windows, it faces the interior air column of the building. The weather wasn't warm enough to use it when we were there, but it will be very pleasant later on in the spring and summer, once it has been cleaned up from the winter. During our visit, the apartment was very quiet and peaceful.
Staying at Mak's apartment was good. It is a great location, and very easy to get to the main centre of London. South Kensington is a lovely area to stay, beautiful and green and Hyde park is across the road. The apartment had most things, the kitchenware is a little dated. The apartment wasn't ultra clean (ie carpet in the bedroom), but I am probably a little pedantic about this.
Mak was fantastic, really responsive and helpful. Thanks Mak!
We spent Christmas and New Year's at Mak's place. It was just perfect, spacious and convenient from the large secure flat to location across from Hyde Park. Also, my husband left his camera one morning in the lobby by accident. When we got back from site seeing that afternoon the security person came and returned it to us. Safe, wonderful and quiet building. We were very happy with our stay!
The flat is in a great location .A lot of shops and restaurants and a very good transportation just next door.
The flat has everything you need and more!!! it is look like Makis think of everything that you can need. nothing is missing.
The flat also has a nice and big terrace that you can sit outside.
A very good wi-fi access all over the flat.
And Makis- the host- is one of a kind. very honest and trustworthy.
Always attentive and ready to help with anything above and beyond.
Thank you Makis for being what you are!!
The flat's location is truly excellent, right across from Hyde Park. It's very convenient and close to shops, grocery stores and restaurants. And only few minutes walk to the tube stations. The flat is comfortable and clean. The living room is spacious with a nice and cozy kitchen that has everything we need. The bedroom is comfortable and the bathroom was just perfect for us. In addition there is a large terrace that we couldn't use as it was too cold at the time of our stay but it was nevertheless an added value. Mac our host was always accomodating and friendly and assisted us before our arrival and during our stay. We really enjoyed our stay in this flat.
The location is fantastic and the flat lovely. Kensington/Hyde park is literally across the street, great shopping and restaurants nearby; three tube stops are within walking distance, as is the Victoria & Albert Museum, the Natural History Museum and the Science Museum. Our host was very accommodating.
We were in London to see our daughter who is studying abroad. The flat was large enough for us to invite some of her friends over for a small wine and cheese party.
Once the construction is completed around the building and the terrace becomes available, it will be a lovely spot.
The stay in Mak's apartment was easilymorganized as he was really responsive and had additional recommendations for us. The apartment is really cozy and clean and at a super location! We had some issues and Makis was very helpful and tried to solve it quickly.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
