About this listing

With its own terrace, perfect for spring/summer breakfasts or dinner with friends - this charming but casual apartment is split across 3 levels with a separate kitchen. Let furnished. All mod cons with excellent wifi access. The Notting Hill Gate tube station is within 1 minute walk.
There are provisions in the kitchen for guests to enjoy if they arrive hungry after their trip: fresh milk, chocolates or cookies and some breakfast options. Guests are welcome to use all in the flat - home away from home.
Ideas for attractions in London can be provided at request. The host can be contacted any time for help if necessary.
The flat has had a variety of wonderful visitors, most have come from overseas for work or leisure. All guests have clean bedding, towels and bathroom stocked with necessary bits. Guests have frequently commented on the delightful location of the apartment especially the excellent travel links to any destination in this wonderful city.
The closeness to famous Portobello Road automatically results in a large variety of restaurants, bars, shops and the market to suit all tastes.
Apartment is modern but has those typically bohemian Notting Hill traces underlining the age of the house (built circa 150 years ago) and has a relaxed nature about it, like most of Notting Hill, it is quirky but comfortable - please note that the apartment is not a hotel room but a home. The apartment benefits from its own entrance from the famous and bustling street. The walls of the apartment are decorated with owner's art collection.
We look forward to welcoming you to our home!
Other Things to Note
Please note check in is at 4pm and check out is at 11 am.
If guests request earlier or later check in or out times, if bookings permit, we charge £50 extra. This is due to cleaning staff and extra arrangements required to accommodate alternative check in or out times.
Please note, those requiring extra bedding for additional use of the sofa bed must let us know in advance. Charges may apply.
Full rules will be provided on arrival but the rules are very general including the following:
We advise all our guests to leave the apartment clean and tidy, to switch the heating off and close all the windows upon departure.
Check in is normally at 4 pm and check out at 10 am but only relevant if there is a chance-over of visitors on the same day. You would be notified if check in/out at a certain time is necessary.
Ideally the arrival and departure times to fit within a normal working day hours 10am to 7pm. If the guests arrive later than 7pm is not a problem at all. It is always best to advise the host in advance about the arrival and departure times so we can arrange for a smooth welcome.
Have a lovely day.
Chil was very quick in replying to my questions. The flat is literally 1 min from the Notting Hill tube stop, so that means there's lots of foot traffic and cars whizzing by. The living room is nice and airy. There is no tv. There is a washer but no dryer. The flat was clean, but the bed was lumpy. Half way through, we ended up sleeping on the sofa because my husband's back was hurting. Other than the bed, everything was very nice. Thank you for hosting us, Chil.
Our first impressions were a bit mixed. The apartment is adequately furnished and equipped but no more. The lack of a wardrobe or any clothes storing facilities means you really have to live out of your suitcases. However, the large living room gives you plenty of room to spread out so we found it quite satisfactory. And you can do laundry which is great. As other reviewers have mentioned, the area is quite noisy with buses passing very regularly until late evening. But we found it exciting rather than annoying. And we loved the outdoor "rooftop" area which we used both day and night as we had good weather.
Whatever the real or perceived faults of the apartment the location is excellent, close to Portobello Road, within a short walk of Kensington Gardens and just around the corner from Notting Hill Gate tube station. It's a great place to live.
Great location, right in heart of Notting Hill/Portobello Rd. 5 mins to Kensington Park Gardens. Well equipped flat with the added bonus of sun terrace. Small bedroom, tight for 2 people. Noise (traffic/people) may be an issue for some, though remember you're in the thick of it. Chil excellent with all comms.
My friend and I enjoyed the time in our Notting Hill flat. This is a lovely location and we really enjoyed having a glass of wine at night on the terrace. The place had all the basics and was clean - and being July, we used the portable fan a lot!
We had a wonderful stay at this flat in July 2015. The flat was clean, close to amenities (including the Nottinghill Tube station) and Chili was a great host. We especially enjoyed that the flat was within walking distance of Kennington gardens and Hyde park which are great places for running and walking. I highly recommend this as a place to stay in London.
Chil's apartment was perfect for our time in London. It's location was fantastic, only a few meters from the Tube station. We found the apartment to be clean, quite spacious and loved the outside patio. Chil also accommodated an earlier check in time which was very much appreciated. We'd definitely consider coming back when in London again.
We enjoyed our stay in Chil's place being in a great location in Notting Hill with great access to the tube and bus lines and good places to eat not very far away. Chil was very accommodating with earlier check in as well as later check out. The lounge area is a good size allowing us to spread our stuff out a little, which we needed as the main bedroom does not have much storage space. The apartment was clean and generally well presented. Would recommend to others wanting to staying a good area with great access to transport and shops.
