I am a curator working for a gallery in Mayfair, London since 2004.
The host canceled this reservation 3 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Chil was abroad during my stay however made accessing the apartment easy (scheduled key pickup with her cleaning lady) and left a detailed note for house rules. The apartment was clean, tidy and in a great location (very close to the Notting Hill Gate tube stop as well as a walk away from Portabello Road). During my stay the heating system was on the fritz and had some issues with hot water and the temperature in the apt, however Chil was always available via email and Whats App to communicate with. She had her handy man come to the apt the very next morning to work on the boiler system and was able to fix the hot water issue. Chil even offered me a partial refund for the heating issues. I would definitely choose to come back and stay here for future London trips despite some of the small hiccups.
Unfortunately we were very disappointed with the apartment and checked out early the next morning.
Whilst yes it's in a great location. Location isn't everything when your on holiday.
Our experience at Chil's flat was horrible in particular, the bed is very uncomfortable and there is a very unpleasant stench of mould or mildew in and around the bed, the sheets and duvet, and especially the pillows. The pillows were in fact, putrid and stained. The bath towels are very old and smelly. Perhaps it is mould or something else, but the fact was we simply could not sleep here, which means we cannot rest and enjoy our holidays, and so we made alternative arrangements.
The apartment is in the heart of Notting Hill. Super value for the money! The host has been extremely nice and quickly in replying. Overall a very good choice.
The flat was great. I stayed with 1 other friend and the split level gave us each our own space. The location was very convenient, right around the corner from the Notting Hill Gate tube station. Check in/out was easy. There was a bit of street noise, as earlier reviews suggested. If you're not sleeping in the living room and are only using the bedroom you won't hear it. If you plan on using the couch in the living room it may bother you a bit but it is just traffic noise.
We had a very enjoyable 3 nights over Nye. Family of 4 with a baby and an 8y.o. Great location and so within a short walk to the beautiful creative quarter. The 3 bed flat is nice but is quite basic in facilities and tiny kitchen. Downstairs looked much bigger though only 2 bedrooms. Cosy flat none the less and would stay again!
The flat was in an excellent location, very close to the tube. It included all of the basic amenities and was just cleaned before we arrived. We would definitely return to this place! Thanks Chil!
This was our first experience in renting an apartment through Airbnb. Chil’s immediate responses throughout the booking process and that continued until the day we arrived in London on late evening eve of Christmas impressed us. The apartment is exactly as described and shown:- clean and neat, 1 min walk to Notting Hill Gate metro station. Tesco, M&S and everything we need was within 5 - 10 mins walk. Plus point that it is located near the famous Portobello district, lending lively and safe atmosphere. The kitchen is equipped with almost all utensils and crockeries. Chil had prepared the necessity like cereal, milk, floor, oil etc. A saviour as all shops and transportations were closed on Christmas Day. We are thankful for her kind gesture.
We spent our daily morning coffee at the beautiful patio while watching the dark winter sky cleared up. It was a nice addition to the memorable stay.
The only downside is the small bedroom. The room is without closet or space to fit our clothes except for the 3 drawers. With limited storage space, we left most of our clothes in the suitcases in the living room. The angle of the bed is quite awkward that the one sleeping nearer to the wall has to crawl in or out from the side of bed when the other is sleeping. However, Chil made up for it all with her thoughtfulness. We would certainly stay in the apartment again in future. Thank you.
We spent a long weekend in London and enjoyed our stay in Chil's apartment very much.
The location is unbeatable and anyone who has ever been to Notting Hill before and loves wandering around that part of the city will know this by looking it up on a map. Also, Notting Hill Gate as one major station to explore the center of London is just a few steps away.
The apartment itself is nice and offers anything you need: a nice place to sit in the living area (actually quite big for London), a kitchen with all general supplies, a small bedroom which is in the back of the apartment, not directly facing the street and a clean bathroom. We stayed there during Pre-Christmas Season, so we did not really use the balcony but we could image the highlight of sitting up there during warmer days and watch people in the streets.
Chil was really easy and quick in communication, no problems at all.
For our next visit, we'd definitely consider coming back to this place.
Chil est une hôte très discrète mais à la fois très disponible. Quartier charmant, appartement très bien situé à deux pas de la station Notting Hill Gate (métro) et également deux pas de Portobello Road... Très bon séjour!!
Merci de votre visite chez moi ! A bientôt !
It was a very good experience to have Chil guest in my apartment. Nice, clean, respectfull and educated.
Very good guest
Chil y sus amigas estuvieron pasando un fin de semana en el Paseo de Gracia, son huéspedes estupendas! Las recomiendo para vuestros apartamentos!!!
