Veronika gave me a very warm welcome to her home, which is a truly calm and relaxing place to be. Her beautiful flat is on the upper floors of a terraced house in a quiet, leafy side road. There is a table and chair and wifi in the bedroom which is spacious and light and very quiet. It has two windows with garden views. The shower room right next door was for my sole use. Guests can use the cooker, fridge and washing machine in the kitchen and Veronika provides a delicious selection of teas and coffee which guests are welcome to use? I stayed 4 nights and slept like the proverbial top each night. The bed is super comfy. The area feels vibrant and safe. The shops, buses and tube are literally within a few minutes walk. You couldn't ask for more in a b&b - I highly recommend a stay here.
I cannot recommend this place highly enough!
1. Host - Veronika is an extraordinary host. We had a video chat before I booked. Before my trip, Veronika arranged for a driver to pick me up from the airport (cost about 30 pounds) which took a load off my shoulders having never been to London before. When I asked if she had a hair straightener at her place, she said she did not but offered to get me one in advance of my arrival. I declined, but when I arrived realized I did need one so she drove me to the store to buy one!
On top of that, I was headed to Spain afterwards and didn't have the right power adapter. Veronika had extras so she gave me one!
Her 18 year old son was also staying in the house the week that I was there, and since Veronika was leaving town 2 days after my arrival it was extremely helpful to have him around. I consulted him for help with directions and other London questions. He was very accommodating, helpful, and fun to hang out with but I don't believe he lives there full time.
2. Location - The flat is about 3-4 blocks walk from 3 different train types in London - the underground, overground, and national rail. I had no trouble whatsoever getting anywhere I needed from the flat. There are also nearby coffee shops which was helpful on my morning journey to work. Most importantly, I felt very safe walking around at night coming home from work or clubs.
3. Flat - The place was very clean and cozy. The bed is comfortable and there was a closet available. The bedroom gets great light and fresh air from 2 windows. The bathroom is private to the guest so I felt ok leaving all my toiletries in there for the week. Soap, shampoo, and towels were provided.
The bedroom and bathroom are on 1 floor, above which is the kitchen and living room, above which are the other bedrooms, so I was able to come in late at night without disturbing anyone.
WiFi is kind of weak in the bedroom so once or twice I took my laptop to the living room to do some work but for the most part it was good.
The kitchen was available for my use with refrigerator, microwave, cutlery, etc. and washing machine for clothes.
I will definitely stay here again on my next London trip and I'd recommend this place to anyone.
Veronika was a very respectful guest. She was very courteous throughout all of our communications and she took good care of the apartment. I would be happy to welcome Veronika back to Kensington Suites.
