Bridget and Bruno are the hosts of this property and they are smart, generous funny people who are always prepared to 'do that little bit extra' to make a visitor feel comfortable. Upon arrival there was fresh homemade bread, a bottle of wine and a rose in a vase. After lugging suitcases about on a hot summer London tube - this was truly appreciated. They are terrific people. Made me feel at home and that asking questions was 'not a problem', but they also gave me my privacy. The self-contained unit is near numerous tubes and buses as well as some pretty parks but it is also in a quiet street so there is no problem with safety and security. I would be back for sure!
We really enjoyed our time here. Bruno was quite helpful upon our arrival and I liked the info sheets they put together. We took advantage of several of his tips for the Tube, buses, restaurant (the Pub was great!), and thought it was so welcoming to have fresh baked bread from Brigette and a bottle of wine for our arrival!! The area was nice and we always felt safe walking about, and I loved having the little kitchen - we had breakfast in 2 days and dinner one. You could hear the family next door, but that is part of sharing an attached apartment. The delight came when one morning we were treated to a concert pianist who was visiting. Great hospitality and I would certainly recommend to any visiting London.
It didn't take but 30 seconds after we arrived that we fell in love with the apartment! My girlfriend wanted to take this apartment home with her. Photos totally accurate...on a quiet residential street about 3 to 4 miles from central London. Tastefully decorated, large comfortable bed, tall ceilings. Tube station was an easy 5 minute walk away and there's a bus stop around the corner. A Shell station near the tube station was convenient to pick up croissants and snacks etc. The owner left us a bottle of Elderflower Cordial in the fridge which we tasted and enjoyed! Clothes washer worked fine, apartment had a clothes rack to dry clothes on (plan on 2 days for your clothes to fully dry before packing them into your suitcase)
Stayed at the apartment with my daughter who was attending Arts Ed school for the week. So convenient, just a 5 minute walk. A real home from home feel. Comfortable, private, spotlessly clean and relaxing. The owners were so kind and let me check in really early and leave late to fit in with my daughter's school plans; a real bonus. Had everything you could need. Great base for exploring the local area and near to the tube f you wanted to venture further.
We choose this place for its proximity to the Piccadilly Line at Hammersmith - for a morning Heathrow flight. Very handy. Query re access code quickly & courteously sorted out. Room entirely satisfactory. Not suitable for lounging around as quite small and in a gloomy basement, but perfect for our purposes. Reasonable too.
