A 5 minute walk from Earls Court Station allows quick access to the rest of London with multiple tube lines departing from here. Many excellent bus links leave from outside the door too. Local amenities include several ATMs, grocery stores, coffee shops and restaurants.
Whatever your plans in London there is a huge variety of sites, restaurants and activities all within striking distance. There are plenty of supermarkets close by including a Marks and Spencer and a Sainsbury's. For a friendly local pub try the Blackbird. Or if you are in the mood for something a little more bohemian then check out the world-famous Troubadour. This place has a well-deserved reputation for its fantastic cocktails, character and live music- the Mumford and Sons played here only a few years ago. Whatever your taste, this is a food-lovers dream.
Maybe take in Christie’s, the globally renowned auction house, located just half a mile away. Countless legendary lots have passed through here including Audrey Hepburn’s timeless black dress from the all-time classic Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and 20 of Elton John’s cars! The Thames, Battersea Park and Hyde Park are only a little further afield as well as the Albert Hall and the Victoria and Albert Museum. London’s most fashionable streets for shopping are also within easy reach.
Being well connected by both bus and rail links, this Londn vacation rental makes travelling around the city very easy.

Left on 10/26/2011 for a stay in September 2011 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Oct 26, 2011Stayed Sep 2011
I keep coming back to this top floor flat, which says it all. It is comfortable, tasteful, cosy and full of character and the agents ensure it is always welcoming and well equipped. Unusually for London, an expansive, private roof terrace with an amazing view, provides outside space which effectively doubles the area of the flat. Communications to other parts of London are excellent, but the close location itself is buzzing. There is a variety of little restaurants and pubs, some of which are known to entertain royal visitors; it's close to the classiest retail outlets in Knightsbridge and the Kings Road, and for culture within easy distance of of the Albert Hall and V&A. Important for sole travellers like me, I feel perfectly safe in the area at all times. The whole package brings me back , but the location, the character,and the furnished roof terrace really sell it to me. It is impossible to find anything negative to say about this flat; thinking about it, the fan in the bathroom could be a bit quieter!
