Why London Perfect chose Kensington and Chelsea
The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea is one of the loveliest and most sought-after areas in central London. Many Londoners would dream of living in this borough, which is home to some of the most famous neighborhoods in London – Kensington, South Kensington, Notting Hill, Belgravia, Knightsbridge, Earl’s Court and Chelsea. These areas exude London charm with their rows of Victorian homes, peaceful garden squares and easy access to the beautiful Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park. Visit world-class museums in South Kensington, stroll along the Thames in Chelsea, find treasures along the Portobello Road Antiques Market in Notting Hill, shop the biggest names in fashion in Knightsbridge, imagine the royal life at Kensington Palace or spend a leisurely afternoon in Kensington Gardens. With some of the best shopping spots in London, classic pubs and great restaurants, you’ll enjoy all the best of the London lifestyle in Kensington and Chelsea. Reach all the top sites in London quickly and easily on the London Underground or by simply hopping on one of the classic double-decker London buses. We fell in love with this charming area of London, and we think you will, too!

Just returned from our 5 day stay at the Mews property. Communication and check-in was great. Really appreciated the little extras including the coffee, juice and yes, the bottle of wine! Property is just as it appears in the photos and location is Ideal with a less than 10 min walk to grocery and tube. We highly recommend and will definitely consider staying again on our next trip to London. Thank you!
Lovely home in the heart of London
We had such a friendly welcome and the accommodation was perfect for us. Central to everything which made walking a breeze. We went in winter and it was nice to come home to a warm cozy house.
Thank you Vanessa, we are happy you enjoyed staying at the Middleton! The London Perfect Team
Great Vacation Rental
Wonderful five day stay - Apartment is in a great location and convenient for walking around London - Nicely appointed and comfortable - A true British pub literally right down the block but bar patrons required to go inside after 9pm so still a quiet place to stay as well.”
Thank you so much Tom! The London Perfect Team
We LOVED our stay with London Perfect
Great great great stay! We could have not hoped for better. We LOVED the neighborhood, the local pub just aroud the corner, the different dining options a few blocks away. The booking process was perfect. I highly recommend London Perfect and the Middleton apartment. …
Thank you so much Adeline, we are happy you enjoyed your stay! The London Perfect Team
Great location, cozy home, excellent communication
We had a wonderful stay over Christmas at this well-positioned property. We booked over a year in advance and throughout that time the communication with London Perfect, the team that manages this property, was excellent. They were very professional, courteous, and comprehensive.
The house is in South Kensington, a very upscale, understated, quiet area where a lot of embassies are located. It’s an easy 10 minute walk to the Gloucester tube station.
The home was well appointed and very comfortable. The beds were a bit hard but the linens were nice. There was a problem with the TV that took a day to fix and also a drainage issue with the shower that we reported so it could be addressed. There was lots of hot water and the space was well designed. Even though there was the 3rd bedroom with twin beds for our 12 year old, he loved sleeping in the perch up on the 3rd floor. It's not a full room per se, but more like a comfy cubby that he loved and felt was his own hideaway.
The space looks larger in the photos and I have found this to be true of most HomeAway/Air BnB rentals. There was a small Christmas tree (very sweet and really helped set the holiday ambiance) and cozy blankets. The dishwasher worked well but the washer and dryer took longer to complete cycles than we were accustomed to.
The pub next door, The Queen's Arms, is not to be missed! The manager and employees are incredibly friendly and the pub itself is as authentic and off the tourist path as you can get. Also, the noise from the pub quiets down early and didn't interfere with our rest.
We did use Lushi, the driver recommended through London Perfect, and we were very pleased that we did. Like London Perfect itself, Lushi was easy to communicate with, prompt, and very professional. It was so nice after getting in from a trans-Atlantic flight to have someone meet us and bring us to the house. Also, the prices were comparable to a cab and there was so much more provided in service in terms of meeting us at the arrival area.
London Perfect emailed us with a neighborhood guide that was *very* comprehensive and helpful. Definitely take the time to study this before you go.
This was a fabulous trip that was successfully facilitated by this lovely home and London Perfect. Although there were some quirks as mentioned above, they were more than made up for by positives. We are glad we stayed at the Middleton.
Wonderful location, the pub next door was convenient
Thank you for posting your review. Other readers do enjoy reading wha has been said by someone who has stayed in the apartments.
Our Kensington and South Kensington vacation rentals are located near the beautiful Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park. The gardens are wonderful for running, walking, picnicking, bicycling or simply stretching out and enjoying a relaxing afternoon like a Londoner. Plan a visit to Kensington Palace, a real working palace, where Princess Diana and Princess Margaret lived. Kensington Palace has undergone a revival with a massive renovation and newly reopened museum for visitors. It has also become the official London residence of Prince William and his wife Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, as well as Prince Harry.
Walk to Museum Row where you can visit the Natural History Museum, Science Museum and the fabulous collections at the Victoria and Albert Museum. The V&A, as the Victoria and Albert Museum is called, has one of the finest collections of decorative arts, along with an unbeatable dress collection of garments from the 1300's to London’s iconic fashions of the 60's and today.
Kensington and South Kensington are fabulous neighborhoods for London shopping! Stroll along trendy Kensington High Street to Knightsbridge where you’ll find Harrods, Harvey Nichols and the biggest names in fashion along Sloane Street. Enjoy the best of the London lifestyle with a stay in a London Perfect vacation rental in Kensington and South Kensington.
