We were met at the door by a friend of Carrie's with the key, on time, which was a great start. The apartment has good amenities, was warm and cosy and is in a beautiful area but we found it too small for 2 adults and 2 teenagers.
The apartment would benefit from some maintenance work, for example replacing lightbulbs, fixing the shower head and the leaking water tank in the bathroom.
El departamento tenia tapada la pileta de la cocina. No obtuvimos respuesta de Carrie y lo tuvimos que resolver nosotros. Esta muy bien ubicado con conexiones de todo tipo hacia los sitios de interés. Es solo para dos personas, como máximo, y sin demasiadas pretensiones. A Carrie no la conocimos.
Studio situé dans un quartier ultra chic donc très calme...
L'appartement est mignon, agréable bien que très petit: quand les 2 lits sont dépliés, ils se touchent et plus vraiment moyen de bouger donc à savoir. Pour l'utilisation nuit + petit déj, très correct.
Ascenseur bienvenu pour des petites jambes de 5 ans qui ont parcouru tout Londres pendant 4 jours !
Itinéraire fourni par la propriétaire, très clair. Remise et dépôt des clés très simples.
Propreté = moyen.
The apartment was nice - it had everything (really amazing in such a small space), but there were some things that were not as great as I expected.
The bed has a spring mattress that makes you bounce around, and sleeping in it with two people made that I woke up with each move of the other. Next to that, the boiler is situated two metres above the bath tub, and it drips all the time, into the bath. This was very noisy and annoying. Hopefully this gets repaired soon!
Other than that, it was a great small apartment, quite a walk to the nearest subway station, but a very nice neighbourhood.
Very cheap flat!
Best thing is the location; really close to Hyde Park and the central zone of London. Also the building is nice, in a quite and peaceful neighborhood.
If you search for a place to rest in the night and have some quick meals, this flat is perfect.
Carrie's apartment was amazing for a short stay. I stayed with three other friends for three nights, it was a tiny apartment but enough if you just want somewhere to sleep in. Great location - quiet and peaceful at night and only around a 10 minute walk from High Street Kensington Station. The only thing was the bathroom light was broken and nobody managed to come fix it for the whole four days, but with the kitchen light on it was still easy to use the bathroom at night. However, it was overall a really enjoyable stay - also a really nice touch that both the bathroom and kitchen were so well equipped!
The best thing about this flat is the location. The building is nice and the flat is exactly as described in terms of size and amenities. It could use a little updating especially in the kitchen. I also had some niggling problems with the heating and hot water. All in all, it's a great spot for 1-2 people wanting to be located in this lovely part of London.
Good location. Fancy street. Small studio.
Un petit appartement TRÈS bien situé à High Street Kensington face a Hyde Park, idéal pour un petit séjour en couple!
Nous y sommes resté 5 nuits, l'appartement est petit mais suffisant. Attention le chauffage ne fonctionne pas mais les 2 petits radiateurs à disposition sont efficaces.
Le quartier est riche, agréable. Sur le chemin être le métro et appartement, possibilité de faire du shopping : Urban Outfitters, Uniqlo, Top shop, h&m, gap, etc...
Compter moins de 10 min pour se rendre a pied au métro. Station de bus "Palace Gate" au bout de la rue devant hyde park desservi par le bus N9 toute la nuit, très pratique pour les sorties le soir !!
Good position near high street kensington underground station e in front of hyde park, very basic (beds not so confortable) but sufficient for a few days.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
