Highly recommend staying here. I enjoyed comforts in this deluxe apartment, better than in a high end hotelroom with more space and possibility to wash and cook. The large quality bed was really comfortable. Very quiet, even though it is in the lovely most central area, Soho-Mayfair neighborhood with stores like Apple Regent street, Liberty and Oxford Circus. Situated close to the Tube and delicious eateries, the flat had everything needed for a stress-free stay. Very helpful caretaker welcomed us with maps, guide books,, explanations for wifi, cable tv, toiletries, kitchen necessities. Well appointed with design furniture, spotlessly clean, and stocked with extra linens.

Natalia was the perfect host! Even though she was in another country, she had a very responsible house manager welcome me to the studio apartment. The view of the studio was totally accurate and although small was very cozy. The fold out bed came with a memory foam mattress and was very comfortable. I am so glad that was provided!! It had a microwave and small refrigerator. It was perfect for 2 days worth of shopping. The grocery store is a block away so I would go shopping every two days. It was perfect! You must wash the dishes in the bathroom sink . The studio does not provide a kitchen sink. It was very easy and not an issue for me. Natalia sent emails with check in and check out process and areas to visit as well as the grocery store location all to ensure I was provided what was needed to be happy and comfortable. She was very responsive and it was an easy process from check in to check out. I would definfitely stay here again. The neighborhood is very nice and I felt safe. It is close to all museums and tour spots. It was walking distance to grocery store and close to the tube. My mother arranged everything as I am a college student and she spoke with Natalia several times. She is truly a great person and I am very pleased with my experience. I will be back!! Thank you again Natalia from both my mother and I! Don't hesiate to stay here! It is a great for the price!"
"Apartment near Barons Court"
Left on 03/25/2016 for a stay in March 2016
The apartment was excellent and located a short walk away from the Barons court tube station. From there it was a few stops to the centre of London on the District Line. The location was quite and close to some shops. The apartment was very clean and had everything that we needed for our short stay in London
"Stunning apartment. Perfect Location."
Left on 03/01/2016 for a stay in February 2016
This apartment is truly stunning. It was more spacious than I anticipated and so beautifully decorated. It had everything we needed for a comfy and well appointed home base. The location is perfect - minutes away from several London museums and the gorgeous Hyde Park. There's a small grocery store that had everything we needed just literally 2 minutes away. We walked to both South Kensington and Gloucester Road train stations from here. Our hosts and greeter were prompt and pleasant communicators. We loved staying in this apartment and hope to do so again. In fact, I think we'd schedule our travel around the availability of this apartment - I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else!
In the late 19th century, London, England stood at the center of one of the greatest and most vast empires the world has ever known. Immigrants still flood to this vibrant UK metropolis by the thousands, adding to its bustling diversity. The tower of London, the Parliament and Abbey at Westminster, The London Bridge and Tower, the annual Wimbledon tennis tournament, and dozens of other attractions bring visitors from all over the world to this city, especially in the summer months when the weather is most favorable. If you're among them, you'll never exhaust London's offerings of art, theater, and history no matter how long you stay, even you decide, as thousands do every year, that you never want to leave.
After leaving your proper English flat or luxury coach house rental in the morning, enjoy some fish and chips and a pint in a real British pub, take a tour of the city on one of its famous double decker busses, and don't miss the essential sights, museums, and world famous historic monuments in and around England's capital.
Here are a few additional suggestions of things to do in London:
- Visit The National Gallery: This Trafalgar Square Museum houses portraits of London's most famous faces, painted by centuries of renowned artists.
- See a play at Shakespeare's Globe Theater: An exact reproduction of William Shakespeare's original Globe Theater will allow you to view some of the world's greatest literary works brought authentically to life.
- Explore the Natural History Museum in South Kensington: Built in the 1870s, this museum looks like a castle and houses one of the world's best collections of dinosaur fossils, prehistoric plants, and sea life.
- Visit the British Museum in Bloomsbury: This museum is home to a collection of over 13 million objects from all continents documenting the entire span of human history and culture.
- Take a day trip to Windsor Castle and Stonehenge: Many charter and private trips are available to visit Windsor Castle, Bath, and the mysterious Stonehenge monument a short drive from the center of London.
- Watch the changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace: Buckingham Palace and Hampton Court Palace are a few of London's royal sites that are not to be missed.
You'll have no trouble finding a vacation rental or apartment rental in London's bustling hub. You can even reserve a condo overlooking the famous Hyde Park. If the bright lights are bit much for you, place some distance between yourself and the city center by renting a cabin or villa in Salisbury.
Getting to and from London is easy by bus or car, and the underground public transportation system within the city is efficient, inexpensive, and easy to navigate. If you can, you may want to include nearby Ireland and Scotland in your travel plans.
