Great location in Notting Hill
What a great location if you're visiting London. Easy walking to markets, restaurants and Gail's Bakery! Had no problems parking.
Great location, great hosts
Had a very nice visit with my family to London and having a great place to stay was really helpful. This apartment is very well located, with parks, tube, coffee shops and restaurants all within walking distance. Our hosts were very friendly and even waited to meet us despite our late evening arrival time (10:30pm). Apartment has all the conveniences you need for an urban adventure. I would recommend this place to other families looking to stay in London.
Good base for your stay
Stayed at this property with my family (Wife, and 4 kids--teens and pre teens). They liked the upstairs bedrooms, being able to spread out. The kitchen is a bit sparse. We thought it was a great place that was close to the tube. Loved being so close to Portabello Road. It's just a little bit old. The carpet could use a good scrub. Kind of felt like sleeping over at Grandma's. But... we weren't there to stay in an apartment. It worked out great as a place to put our bags and lay down at night while we toured around London. We'd stay there again, I think.
Needs a good scrubbing..
Whereas the flat was big enough for four ladies, it certainly could have used a spruce up. Peeling paint, cobwebs, A neglected garden, broken tiles, filthy carpets, etc. took away any charm it may have once had.
This 3 bedroom flat was a great deal in a great location, and worked fine for our family. We appreciated the washer/dryer, WiFi, and private back patio. We used the stove a few times and it was easy to use. The drying rack in the bathroom was helpful, too. The street was quiet, and safe. The Grocery Store was in walking distance. Note: fridge is just a mini-fridge, not a full size, so plan accordingly.
Improvements: The leak from the shower into the laundry room needs to be fixed (the water dripped onto an electric extension cord—it was scary). Also, there was very little room for our clothes/luggage because all of the drawers were half full with towels and sheets. It was nice to have so many towels, but it would be great to condense those things in a more orderly fashion, so as to allow guests space to put away things in such a small space.
It would be nice to also have the book with instructions include information on garbage/recycling.
Thank you. I'm pleased you enjoyed your time. The fridge is a standard size here in the UK but I do understand that it's not the standard size in North America, We had our plumber around to look at he leak as soon as it was mentioned and he found that the shower pump needed some minor attention and thankfully this was fixed and there has been no sign of anymore more water in the laundry room.The extension socket was fine too. Thank you for telling us about it.It's a very large flat so I'll ensure there's more room in the closets.The council have changed the days for recycling so as soon as we receive the updated info, it will be placed in the info book. We really try to encourage our guests to be eco friendly and are happy to ensure that any bottles etc are taken to the recycling bank in Notting Hill after guess leave just in case you miss the one day per week when it's collected from outside of the house.I hope to welcome you back to the UK on your next visit.
Great apartment with kitchen in zone 1
We had a wonderful stay in Notting Hill! The apartment was exactly what our group of 6 was looking for. There were enough beds, towels, etc. and kitchen utensils for cooking. Being inside zone 1 and just a 5-10 min short walk from Notting Hill Gate underground was definitely a plus as well. The neighborhood was very peaceful and seemed to be in a pleasant location, in addition to being just outside the Portobello Road market. James and his team were very friendly and helpful, and were quick to respond throughout the booking process. Being students, we also found the price to be very affordable for the location. I would certainly recommend this apartment to anyone looking to stay in a comfortable and pleasant location within zone 1! Hope to stay here again!
Thank you! It's great to hear you really enjoyed your time in Notting Hill.
