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!

Wonderful Location, Quiet, perfect for family of 4
We returned to the Russell for our second stay because we liked it so much. The apartment is quiet, looking onto a parking lot in the back so it's not facing a street, but still get lots of light and air. The welcoming staff was there when we arrived and they allowed us to check in early without any problem. He explained everything in the apartment and showed us how it worked and gave us his favorite apps for traveling around London and ordering food delivery. Those apps turned out to be amazingly helpful navigating London! It was a bit warm (we were there in July) so we requested an additional fan, which showed up the next day no problem. The kitchen came fully equipped, and they had milk, coffee and some basics already in the house for us which was so nice. The washer dryer is more like a washer. The dryer didn't work entirely, but we hung up the clothes and they were wrung out well by the washer so they dried pretty quickly hanging for a few hours (we emailed the management to let them know). The area is terrific. Right near a couple of central subway lines (Earl's Court), near the natural history museum, the park and the V&A museum. Great french bakery couple of blocks away, great British pub, Thai food and wonderful Indian food a block away, and grocery stores big and small within close walking distance. It is amazingly convenient. The apartment was very clean, wifi worked super quickly and hook up was immediate. Didn't hear much noise from the other apartments. I would totally recommend a stay here with children--second bedroom is two single beds which was perfect for our family of 4. Beds & pillows and duvets were clean, crisp and really comfortable, which sounds silly to say but it made the stay so much more enjoyable after long days of roaming the city. Really fantastic. …
The Russell flat has a great location in Kensington and near the Earl's Court tube station. It's a quiet and light flat, well equipped. We had a very pleasant stay there. The neighborhood contains several nice pubs and other restaurants. We particularly recommend The Abingdon.
Thanks for posing your review. Very helpful to those who are searching for a nice place.

Had a terrific trip with my family in London and one week was not enough time to do everything. London Perfect staff very helpful and Lushi's car service was very reliable. If you consider this apartment do know it is very noisy. It is in a large apartment building with residents that are up all night and very loud. Otherwise good location to tube (recommend Earl's Court stop) and to museums.
Thanks for posting! Reviews do help the ones who are searching for a nice place to stay.

The Russell flat on Cromwell Road was a lovely place from which to start and finish our days. The flat was clean and neat and had all the necessary items for a comfortable stay. It was easy walking distance to the Earls Court tube station or High Street Kensington tube station. The Sainsburys grocery store was very close as well. The staff couldn't have been more helpful throughout our stay. We will definitely chose London Perfect again!

We appreciated the Russell apartment. It was quiet, nice and functional. Perhaps a lack of space to put things away in the bedrooms. We had not discovered at first that there was space in the big cupboard of the living-room. A well-equipped kitchen. The location was very convenient with easy access to main lines at Earl's Court, to lots of little restaurants and to Sainsbury's! We all loved our week's stay there.
The Russell vacation rental is located in South Kensington, near Museum Row and fabulous London shopping along Kensington High Street. You are walking distance to Kensington Palace, Kensington Gardens, loads of shops, restaurants, cafés and public transport.
