What Past Guests Are Saying
San Francisco, CA
A lovely flat
This flat was absolutely perfect for our family of four! It is lovely, well-kept and in a wonderful neighborhood. Carl and Liz were great to deal with and very helpful providing information and answering questions. We would highly recommend The Emperor!
Service with a smile
We stayed in this lovely small flat during our holiday. Decor and furniture is somewhat dated, however it suited our family of 4 (children 11 and 14) well. Quiet and safe neighborhood. About 5 min walk from nearest tube. Many multicultural restaurants nearby, where we enjoyed delicious dinners. We appreciated the car service from airport. Carl arranged for us to check in early at a very last minute request. Overall, pleased with our experience and service.

It was troublesome initially to find the flat as no details provided except the zip code upon making reservation. Would help a lot if door number is given in advance since no locals there know about "The Emperor" and there was no writing anywhere. Nonetheless, no harm to call Nelly to ask.
Service was great and Nelly is very helpful in explaining things especially about vehicle parking which I'm not familiar with being a foreign visitor. However, there is no long term parking there except pay parking. The flat is comfortable for 5 people and all appliances are perfectly working. Nonetheless, there's no space to put luggage in both bedrooms which we ended up placing it in the living room.
Sainsbury is not far from the flat and Westbourne Park tube station is the closest with 10 to 15 minutes walk. Not aware of any fast food nearby but there's a pub which serves food behind the apartment.
The best thing I like about the flat is that it is at the ground floor which is helpful having several luggages to carry. Note that this is an old London building and not necessarily have lift to upper floor.
Amazing rental flat in London.
We found this flat online. The pictures showed a beautiful property but could not show the quality of service given to us by the owners, Carl and Liz Risberg. From the moment we inquired about the flat they were prompt in responding to our requests. We were planning a trip with our 3 children and they were helpful with suggestions about where to eat and what to do in the area. We were met at the property and given thorough instructions on how to use all of the facilities (washing machine, television, etc.). The home was beautiful, well maintained and the perfect size for our family. The location was great - we were able to walk to a variety of restaurants and grocery stores as well as to two different tube stations. We were so pleased with the property and the property owners and will definitely stay in this or another of their properties again.
Wonderful apartment for our London vacation!
The Emperor was perfect for my family on our trip to London! The apartment was very cozy, we especially loved the fireplace and the beds were extremely comfortable after long days of walking around the city! Liz and Carl were very helpful and made our stay special. I'll certainly contact them again the next time I make it to London, hopefully sooner rather than later. I'd recommend this apartment to anyone who wants a safe, comfortable and convenient place to stay.

This flat is in a great location (within walking distance (15 minutes) from Kensington Gardens, many bus stops, and great restaurants)! The cell phones, Wifi, and pre-trip grocery shopping provide by Liz and Carl helped make our stay truly enjoyable!
terrific location with terrific owners
Terrific location in Notting Hill with easy access to public transportation, good restaurants, and sights. Flat is small but very comfortable. Best feature by far is the extraordinarily thoughtful owners who went out of their way to ensure a good stay - from doing grocery shopping in advance to being incredibly accessible before, after, and during our stay. The personal attention cannot be beat. Highly recommend.
