Alles vorhanden für einen rundum gelungenen Londonaufenthalt!
Das Haus ist perfekt ausgestattet, sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet und wunderbar gelegen. Mitten im Herzen Londons gelegen und dennoch vollkommen ruhig, erreicht man viele Sehenswürdigkeiten zu Fuß. Zur U-Bahnstation sind es 5 Minuten.
Der Kontakt zu den Eigentümern gestaltet sich unkompliziert und war sehr freundlich. Die Nichte Kezia, die uns vor Ort einführte, ist ein wahrer Sonnenschein und sehr hilfsbereit.
Uneingeschränkt zu empfehlen!
Historic house in Great Location
We enjoyed our stay here. The location is excellent. You are located on a nice safe street just a brief 5 minute walk to the Main Street that is very close to Harrods and the underground and loads of shops. In the other direction is the Victoria and Albert museum and it is also possible to walk to the posh Chelsea neighborhood.
The communication with the owner and property manager was excellent. They were very flexible and accommodating on arrival and departure time as we had arrived from overseas travel being up all night. TheY were very helpful in answering questions in where to find things like where the cleaners had left the hair drier.
The front part of the living room with the nice sitting area we probably enjoyed the most. We didn’t use the piano in the back part of the room and probably would have loved one more comfy chair too instead but it looked nice.
The kitchen was also very nice and the TVs and internet worked well.
It was late fall so we didn’t get to use the patio or grill but they looked nice. The washer and drier worked well. Once we figured out how to use the water, we had good hot showers- no issues; we just took brief showers and not all at once. The champagne and water left in the refrigerator was also really nice and it was nice they had left coffee but we didn’t use it as we brought our own.
The house has a lot of character- I didn’t just want to stay in a sterile apartment that could have been anywhere- you felt like you were in the Jolly old UK. The house has a lot of books if you are a quick read. Several bedrooms have fireplaces- we didn’t use them as I don’t think they work but they were pretty as were the historic windowsMany high ceilings with moldings.
.I think the house is most comfort ale for up to a family or party of 5 or so with at least school age children and everyone has the ability to go up and down stairs easily.
So overall a 5 rating- there are a few minor tweaks that are probably just a function of age ; the mattresses probably could be updated -and the tv room sofa was pretty hard for sleeping, and the house heat was not able to be regulated so, it got a little hot in the master bedroom.
But overall a wonderful place- to have the space of a whole house in London in such a great neighborhood for shopping and sightseeing is amazing. Again the hosts and property manager were very nice welcoming people. We appreciated the stay very much.
3.5 stars - Nice host, old property, area is like 'little Arabia', comfortable stays for 4-5 ppl
One main reason for us to book this property is because we are a party of 7 and this property offers 3 full bathrooms. We are a little disappointed on that front as even we have enough bathrooms, the water tank is not big enough to have 3 people taking shower at the same time -- my Dad complained about luke warm shower and not to mention he was hoping to take a hot bath after a long day of visiting London.
So even this property can fit up to 7, it won't be comfortable. It only has 2 bedrooms. And if this is your first time stepping into an old English townhouse, you might be a little surprised on how narrow and (pretty) steep the stairs are, and this house has a lot of them. The carpets show a lot of wear and tear, and the hand rail could use a deep cleaning.
I had no issue with communicating with the property owner before the trip (for booking etc), while what we met was actually the greeter since owners were out of town. Greeter was nice and she brought fresh flowers and a bottle of wine upon our arrival which was a nice gesture. But since there is no local phone in the townhouse, we had to use email to catch her for things we need (lights went out, can't find coffee machine, hot water question etc) and there was a lag in communication which more or less affected our experience of stay. BTW, the kitchen is fully equipped but for some reason there is no coffee machine! We asked the greeter and she has no idea either.
Location wise, the townhouse is about 8 mins walk to Knightsbridge station on Picadilly line, and it's very close to the luxury department store Harrods. I had no idea how dominate this area was by the Arabic people though. They filled up Harrods and most of the area. Later I heard Knightsbridge is the most expensive neighborhood in London, occupied primarily by those billionaires. Walking around with so many Arabic people made me feel I wasn't in London, but an Arabic country instead.
One last thing -- I wish the check out process was clearer. As I mentioned above, we don't have local phone # so calling the greeter was difficult, so I wasn't clear on what we need to do to check out. Shall we clean up the property? What is she going to come? Nothing was clearly stated anywhere. The greeter didn't show up until about 10am (as the traffic was bad) and I had to waited for her as they used physical keys to gain access to the house and I didn't want to leave without walking through the property with her.
Excellent property and owner
Comfortable home is located in convenient location in Knightsbridge. Very close to Harrods, Hyde Park, the Underground, and many restaurants. Owner and attendant are very responsive and helpful. We had a great stay and hope to return.
Fun Family Vacation for 6
This was a great property for our family of 6. We had one bedroom set up with twins for our daughters, the den sofa bed for our boys and my wife and I had the master. The portable AC units were great on warm evenings. Easy walk to 2 tube stops and bus stops. Grocery store and bakeries nearby. Hyde Park was a short walk and was great for picnics. This house is very comfortable. It is not sterile - more like staying in a friend’s home. Bill and Michelle were very responsive though we really had no need to bother them. The home is on 4 levels. Not a problem for us but need to be able to manage steps.
Wonderfully comfortable home base in London for 11 nights
We were four adults (two couples) sharing this wonderful townhouse in Knightsbridge, situated on a very quiet street but only steps away from busy Brompton Road and the Knightsbridge Station on the Piccadilly Line. A few minutes in the other direction to South Kensington Station on the District and Circle Lines made it a great jumping off point for any number of day excursions.
We ate breakfast in most mornings, and had several dinners at home, easily facilitated in the very nicely appointed kitchen. There was an abundance of preparation and serving bowls, pots, pans, knives, utensils, glassware, tableware, and stainless steel place settings. We used the outdoor gas grill one evening for a lovely dinner. We put the dishwasher to good use most every evening, making clean up a breeze. The washer and dryer were an excellent convenience and we would not have packed as much had we realized how easy it would be to wash clothes at the house. We learned after a few loads that the trick to the dryer is to use the timer feature (60 minutes) rather than the dryness sensor (which left clothes damp and took a very long time to finish the cycle).
There are three bathrooms and seemingly unlimited hot water. Bedrooms were very comfortable and had good storage space. Throughout the elegant home are shelves and shelves of books for reference and pleasure. It was fun, as well, to play a bit on the piano. The weather during our stay was very comfortable and we only needed the windows open to get cross a very pleasant cross breeze. The individual air conditioner units were just right for the one day and evening when the weather turned hot. Very easy to use the AC by simply putting the exhaust tube out the window. We arranged at no extra cost for fresh towels and light cleaning about 7 days into the 11 day trip.
This home was just right for our group of four adults, allowing each of us our own space if we wanted a little quiet time. The outdoor patio is a bonus area, though we did not take full advantage of it except for an occasional lunch or snack. As with any townhouse, the spaces are oriented vertically. Nearly every room is on a different level, so anyone with mobility issues might think twice. Otherwise this home is incredibly charming, well appointed, and wonderfully located.
