Upstairs, your tour begins with the master bedroom (sleeping two guests) which features an en-suite bathroom. This is the largest of the three bedrooms with a king size bed, a large set of fitted wardrobes and cupboards and your own TV for late nights or relaxing mornings. The en-suite bathroom is fully tiled and offer a shower over bath, sink and WC. The en-suite also comes with bathroom essentials such as shower gel and hand-wash.

    This eighth- and ninth-floor apartment, in a high-rise building, "Point West," converted to apartments within the past twenty years, is modern and comfortable. All three bedrooms face the quiet inner courtyard and the small balcony terrace faces west. There is ample storage space for clothing and luggage, and sufficient shelf space in the two modern bathrooms, which have full tubs with showers. The large living/dining room is comfortable and attractive. The kitchen has all necessary equipment, and the washer-dryer works (which has not been the case with every rental we have had). The management company is responsive to any problems. The building's 24-hour concierge staff are friendly and helpful as needed. The wifi is fast and reliable (although it does not reliably reach the upstairs bedroom). The building is located less than five minutes from the Gloucester Road underground station, which is served by three underground lines providing swift service to most parts of London--a great location. It's only a few blocks further walk to the museum complex of Natural History, Science and the Victoria and Albert Museums. Kensington High Street and Kensington Gardens are a short walk north from the building. There is a large grocery store on the same property as Point West, and another adjacent to the underground station. The only disadvantage I can think of is that the staircase between the two levels is narrow and fairly steep, a potential problem for people with elderly knees or large pieces of luggage. All in all this is a fine place to stay in London and we would consider renting it again if it were available the next time we visit the city. 07 May 2016 - 20:24:00

    We really enjoyed our stay. The location couldn't be any better -- right around the corner from two grocery stores and a tube stop and an easy walk to Kensington Gardens. We were a family of five with kids aged 14, 11 and 6. The room set up was great. We had plenty of space. 09 August 2016 - 13:21:00

    the apartment was well located for our tourist interests, modern, clean, comfortable with the plus of a balcony with a great view. Fit my family's needs quite well (seven of us). very pleased. - don neuman 07 August 2016 - 01:48:00

    Great Kensington location. Very large apartment building with all the modern conveniences. Walking distance to restaurants, pubs and the tube. The unit has very steep stairs from the entry hall area to the common living areas; proving a bit of a challenge for some of us. There is a nice balcony off the living room where all five of us sat and enjoyed a bottle of wine. No concierge on site but property management available by phone or email. All said, this flat offers spacious and affordable accommodations for your stay in Kensington. 10 October 2016 - 20:09:00

    Stayed with my husband and two daughters, 12 and 16, was excellent for everyone to have their own space. Master bedroom on the upper floor with a bathroom and then the two bedrooms for the girls were on the main floor with their own bathroom. Great little kitchen with all the necessary appliances. Huge living room room area with loads of space for everyone, including the balcony. We were met on arrival and shown around the apartment which was very helpful. So close to Glouchester station and grocery stores. The apartment was also lovely and warm for October, we didn't even need to turn on the heat. 23 October 2015 - 21:12:34

    This apartment had many positives for our family of 5. It is a bi-level unit, so the master bedroom and bath are upstairs where you enter, and two more bedrooms, kitchen, full bath and living room and outside deck are downstairs. It's nice to have some privacy from the children but this also means if your kids go to bed, you can't make much noise downstairs. The apartment does not have air conditioning, which is pretty common for London. We slept with windows open, but the apartment (especially the two bedrooms downstairs) do get warm so we kept the large door to the deck open most nights. Internet is available in the unit, though it does not work in the upstairs master bedroom. The kitchen is well appointed with a dishwasher and a combination washer/dryer unit. There is a very convenient grocery store on the grounds of the apartment complex and a Starbucks in the grocery. The tube station is a 5 minute walk and it took about 20 minutes to get to Piccadilly Circus which is great. The management company was responsive to an issue we had with our washing machine and had it replaced during our stay as the machine was broken. We had to use the laundromat 5 minutes away, but the management refunded us for the money we spent doing laundry. 16 August 2016 - 02:06:58

    We found the apartment to be excellent and very central to supermarkets and tube station. The apartment was very well supplied with the basic supplies. Restaurants and pubs nearby were very good and reasonably priced. Thank you to Karen for all of her organising for us to be picked up and returned to Heathrow as well. Mark the taxi driver could not have been more helpful and punctual. A great holiday was had by all the family and would highly recommend the apartment Regards Lee Ryan 27 January 2016 - 10:38:00

    The apartment was perfect for our family vacation, comfortably accommodating my husband and I and four grown children. The living room was spacious and a good place for all of us to hang out. The kitchen was small but fairly well-equipped. We found the two-level layout fine and the stairs easy to navigate. The location was a big plus as well and having the supermarket right downstairs proved handy. The living room could benefit from better lighting and the sofas were a bit tired but overall it was clean and roomy. 20 January 2018 - 23:00:00

    The unit was clean and well appointed. Cons: No dishwasher and lots of walking to get to actual unit (the building is massive!). Staircase inside unit is not good for elderly or those with mobility issues. Close to lots of restaurants. Manager met us on time and was very welcoming. Lots of food delivery options nearby. 05 December 2017 - 15:34:00

    Our party of 7 adults was very comfortable in this property which was well-stocked with nice quality bedding/towels, kitchen appliances/cooking items, trash bags, paper goods, etc. It is in easy walking distance of Gloucester Rd tube station, grocery stores and restaurants. The Natural History Museum, Royal Albert Hall, V & A Museum and Hyde Park are within a couple miles of the flat, as well. The flat has a concierge available at the front desk, so we felt safe returning from our adventures late in the evenings. There are rather steep, carpeted stairs between the two floors with a good handrail in place. We would recommend a handrail be placed in the lower floor bathroom, as it is quite a step up to get in and out of bathtub. There is plenty of hot water. Karen the rental coordinator is very responsive, and Mark the cab driver made the trips to and from Heathrow a pleasure. (Mark is also available for daytrips to Dover, Bath, Stonehenge, Edinburgh, etc.) The balcony overlooking West London is very nice for early morning tea/coffee, or an adult beverage in the evenings. We were very pleased with this property! 27 October 2017 - 10:46:00

    This flat was just what we expected. The neighborhood was great. A short walk to Royal Albert Hall, Kensington Gardens and much more. The Flat itself was clean and very importantly the beds were all comfortable. The bathrooms were spacious and well equipped. The Living room was comfortable for the six of us and the kitchen had everything you need. The only thing you need to be aware of is that the flat has the living space and 2 bedrooms on a lower level and the stairs are steep getting down. But there is a railing and it is very well lit. Paul was gracious as he showed us around and got us acclimated to the space. I highly recommend this flat for anyone wanting to stay in the Kensington area. 12 October 2017 - 11:34:00

    We had a very enjoyable stay at this spacious and modern apartment. We got plenty of exercise with the stairs :) The location is convenient to the Gloucester tube station, which runs on two lines, and many sights in the Kensington area. There is a Sainsbury grocery store next door that has everything you'd need. Karen was quick to respond with a minor linens issue. I would recommend this apartment for large families or groups. 07 August 2017 - 05:51:00

    The apartment is in an excellent location,spacious, quiet with wonderful views, and made an excellent base for us to introduce our grandchildren to London. The only annoying issue we had was with the oven which took forever to reach the required temperature for safely cooking any food. After a day's sightseeing it is important to have an working oven to heat a fresh chilled meal, but this oven never even approached the required temperature. Other minor niggles were 1. the initial lack of adequate cutlery, which was rectified by the owner. 2. The broken, unsafe, chair in the top bedroom. 3. the main light that did not work in the top bedroom All these could so easily put right. Overall our visit was a great success 01 August 2017 - 10:08:00

    This is a very nice property with room to spread out. It was perfect for our family of 5 adults traveling together. It is modern, clean, and fully wired. It has great access to the tube, buses, 2 excellent grocery stores, west end museums, and loads of restaurants within walking distance. The greeter met us right on time and Karen from Heritage Rentals was very responsive with several questions we had during our visit. 2 things to be aware of with this property- all but 1 bedroom has to be accessed via the stairs which are very steep; and there is no traditional air conditioning so if you're there in the few warm weeks of summer, you will want to use the fans provided and leave the windows open on both sides of the apartment to create ventilation. The balcony and patio windows face west. We would definitely stay here again for a group our size. 16 July 2017 - 21:34:00

    The apartment is in a wonderful neighborhood with restaurants, shopping, underground stop, etc. right there. The Victoria and Albert Museum, Kensington Palace, and Natural History Museum as well as Harrods are a short walk and the Gloucester stop allows access to literally everywhere we wanted to go. The apartment is large, clean and well equipped and the building is well- cared for and very nice. We had a slight issue with the bedding upon arrival, but Karen responded quickly, took care of all and even sent us chocolates! As others have noted, it is a duplex and the living area is downstairs with the two smaller bedrooms so the stairs could be a challenge. I would also mention the tub/showers have high sides so might be a challenge for some also. The bedrooms could be warm at night so we definitely had to keep windows open. We would definitely stay there again. 17 June 2017 - 21:04:00

    Comfortable stay for 5 adults. Great location, 5 mins from Gloucester Road Tube station. Lovely balcony and nice amenities including washing machine & dishwasher. Property manager very responsive. 08 June 2017 - 00:29:00
  17. Julie M.
    The property was great, conveniently located by the Tube and grocery stores. We had plenty of room (family of 4). Karen was very responsive and quick to answer questions. Beds were comfortable, appliances worked well and we had no issues at all. The building itself is well maintained, there are plenty of restaurants and pubs within walking distance. This was our first time in London so we were really in the dark around where we should stay. This location couldn't have worked out any better. We loved it and would definitely stay there again. 02 June 2017 - 15:20:00

    The bi-level situation is undesirable with entry and master bedroom on the top floor and living area, kitchen, and additional bedrooms on the lower level following an extremely steep flight of stairs. It is a week after we left and the rental has still not returned the security deposit (500 pounds) they charged to my credit card a month ago. Communication with rental was terse and essentially unresponsive. The location is good. The building staff are friendly and helpful, but the structure itself is the antithesis of a charming London flat. The apartment was clean but it is worn. The appliances were in working order but they are old and tired. The apartment is very quiet and great for a good night's sleep. 15 April 2017 - 17:33:00

    Property worked very well for family traveling between Christmas and the New Year. Location is close to Underground and museums - very convenient! Property management team is very responsive and helpful. 02 January 2017 - 20:42:00

    The apartment was advertised by the photos. Having a larger living room helped us with down time. The small room with the twin beds is small but it was perfect for the kids. The second room on that floor had a king bed but it was an okay size. The mattress is really low to the floor. Originally, I was planning on putting my 73 old mother in there but she wouldn't have been able to get up. The other room upstairs also had a king bed and was quite large with it's own bathroom. The kitchen was perfect for what we needed and there was plenty of plates, cups, etc. Location is the best. It's 2 maybe 3 blocks to Gloucester Road Underground. Most of our traveling was on one of the lines that left that station. The other bonus was the Sainsbury grocery store which is only a half block. It was super easy to have breakfast and snacks before we left. 06 December 2016 - 14:44:00
