About This Listing
This flat is very much like an entire home listing with 2 bedrooms, private bath, living area, dining area, and kitchen. I also live here, but use the upper loft area, and share of kitchen.
London Chelsea sunny flat
Pros: A large sunny flat with good transportation links, in a lovely neighborhood, and which includes the use of the whole floor, which consists of a double bedroom and a large double bedroom, a bath with a separate shower, a kitchen, dining, living, wifi, broadband, a television, washer/ dryer, and a dishwasher. There are many original features in the flat. The rate actually depends on the number of people, and the length of the stay. The closest underground station is South Kensington. The flat is well serviced by several bus lines that will take you most of the places you would like to visit.
One bathroom is private to you. Three full flights of stairs. The flights are arranged as half flights, which actually makes it easier to get the bags up,
I will be resident in the floor above, and will use the kitchen from time to time.
You will have access to the entire third floor flat, living room, dining room, television. In order to list 2 bedrooms, had to define as entire home.
Interaction with Guests
As much or as little as you require. I will be around at breakfast time and can answer any questions.
The neighborhood is full of many interesting shops, pubs and restaurants. Very convenient to the South Kensington museums.
Public transit on the buses is plentiful, you can actually get most places in London by catching a bus just outside the front door or on the King's Road.
Getting here from Heathrow: Take the Piccadilly Line to South Kensington Station. You can get oyster cards or travel cards from the train station at the airport. From South Ken, take the 49 or the 345 bus from bus stop D on Harrington Road about 6 stops to Beaufort Street, Cheyne Walk.
From Gatwick Airport: Take the Gatwick Express to Victoria Station. From there take the 170 or the 11 bus to Beaufort St, and walk to the block marked 9-16 Beaufort Mansions.
Other Things to Note
I have asked for a checkout time of 11 am, so that I can prepare the rooms, but if necessary you will be able to leave your bags until later on.
Key deposit of 20 pounds.
Kate was the perfect host, she was very flexible about arrival and departure times. She asked what I would like for breakfast and made sure it was there for me. The location was perfect for my requirements as I was working at the Chelsea Flower Show so I was easily able to walk to work along either the Embankment or Royal Hospital Road within 20minutes. All the amenities on offer worked well for me.
We stayed at 3 B&B when we were in UK. This one is the least favorite place of all. If you don't mind no hospitality, self cooking breakfast, dusty table and long stairs , this is the good place with convenient bus access to the center of the city.
Notre séjour à Londres, très réussi! L'appartement de Kate est spacieux et décoré avec goût amirablement situé entre la Tamise et la célèbre King's Road avec toutes les commodités pour vistiter Londres sans devoir prendre le métro, les bus sont au pied de l'immeuble.
Kate est une femme discrète, cultivée, toujours prête à vous donner de bonnes adresses. Une artiste dans l'âme.
Bueno pues una mezcla de buenas sensaciones con otras no muy buenas. La casa está situada en una zona bastante buena y con fácil conectividad al transporte público. Lo no tan bueno que he de decir , es que la casa está bastante sucia ( cuartos de baño y sábanas arrugadisimas, lo que no sabes sí están usadas por otros huéspedes o sin planchar) en comparación a los que esperamos una habitación de un hotel en España ... A los que no les importé eso es perfecto ..... La señora es muy amable y educada. En los 3 días no la vimos en ningún momento hasta marcharnos a pesar de vivir en la misma casa subiendo unas escaleras. Nosotros particular mente compramos 1 juego de sábanas para cada pareja en un zara cercano. Realmente no paramos más que para dormir. Toda esta situación cambiaría si ofreciese un servicio como un hotel con toallas y sábanas limpias y cuarto de baño limpio podría conseguir un resultado magnífico con una persona contratada para dar un mantenimiento al menos durante la estancia.... Ya que sobre todo es bastante dinero el que nos gastamos nos hubiese gustado más limpieza.
Kate was prompt & reliable, and has a great location and flat. We'd stay again! We hadn't realized however, that it's a shared accomodation. Kate was quite gracious and easy to share with. Kate's area is upstairs, and it's only a shared entry, kitchen & dining; main level (downstairs) is huge, with your own bath. Kate is available for advice, and also offers plenty of privacy as well.
Perfect surprise in Chelsea. The flat is charming and arty, as is the host. A very peaceful stay, right at the bus stop, nearby groceries, etc, highly recommended.
