About listing

SPECIAL INTRODUCTORY OFFER - LOW LOW PRICES! APARTMENT NEWLY AVAILABLE FROM NOVEMBER 2016 Sleep in the most comfortable bed in the world and share a postcode with the Queen! Like our other acclaimed apartment in this same district (see our five star reviews at https://www.homeaway.co.uk/p1638462?uni_id=3210248 ) this even-more-recently refurbished, and larger, apartment is fitted out to the highest standard. Our aim has been to create a top-quality-boutique-hotel-experience in a unique self-catering apartment. Situated on the second floor of a Victorian period house (built in 1855), the apartment is interior-designed in soft greys,‘cashmere’ and mauve. The wide range of focused and ‘mood’ lighting includes background light sources, which can be set to rotate a colour-change (see the photographs). With large traditional sash windows to front and rear, this bright apartment is flooded with light. South-facing into the afternoon sun, the spacious living/dining/sitting room is fitted with every convenience: unlimited Broadband; underfloor heating; substantial wall-hung SMART TVs (there’s one in the bedroom, too) wired into the WiFi network and with pre-paid access to Netflix; USB ports in power sockets; fold-out end-tables to each side of the custom-made sofa, so you can ‘lounge’ while working at your laptop; a mango-wood dining table and four matching dining chairs; a stream-lined, well-fitted kitchen with all modern conveniences; ‘art’ photographs of London on the walls. The apartment sleeps four comfortably: two in the bedroom, where again there is ‘mood’ and colour-change lighting and a phone-charger/radio/alarm clock and USB charging points to each side of the bed. The mattress (150 cm – 5’0” – wide) is ‘bespoke’: firm and supportive while, at the same time, allowing the sleepers to feel as if they are floating on a cloud. In this cozy bedroom, a ‘hidden’ dressing table with hairdryer, as well as two concealed drawer units, clothes-hanging-space (more in the large cupboards in the sitting room), make the most of every inch of space. Another two people are accommodated in the sitting room, but we don’t use a sofa bed because, in our experience these are rarely comfortable. Instead, we supply divinely comfortable and solid fold-out beds, which are cleverly stored away in a large cupboard just outside the apartment during the day, and can be set out in the sitting room to form 1 x large double or 2 x single beds at night. Our ‘Bedeck’ bed-linen is of the highest hotel quality. The bathroom is small but perfectly fitted, with a powerful shower over the bath, and atmospheric lighting and discrete ‘grab handles’ to make the bathing experience safe and secure for older guests. We also provide high quality bath-and-shower products, with two deep, fluffy towels and a face-cloth for each guest, as well as make-up remover pads and cotton-wool-balls. We believe we have thought of everything for your comfort (although we always welcome further suggestions!) The underfoor heating in the sitting room can be boosted by the central heating system, and there is a heated towel rail in the bathroom, and cooling fans for the summer months. A groceries-hamper, together with fresh bread, milk and butter, welcomes you. In the kitchen, dishwasher and washing machine tablets sit beside the relevant machines (the washing machine is a washer/dryer); a bone china dinner service, wine glasses and champagne flutes and a very good range of cookware and other food preparation tools make ‘eating in’ a delight. We even leave jotters, pens and pencils to capture sudden thoughts – or shopping lists . . . Cleaning and maintenance are to the highest standard. This is a real home-from-home with every detail attended to by the owners, who keep a sharp eye on the whole operation and are on hand to deal with any issue immediately. The street in which the house is located is in the sought-after ‘Pimlico Grid’ – a grid of residential streets laid down by the planner Thomas Cubitt beginning in 1825, and now protected as the Pimlico Conservation Area, and subject to elaborate traffic-flow-measures to inhibit through-traffic. The apartment is whisper-quiet. Within the Pimlico Village, in the district of Westminster (Zone 1), the apartment is a few minutes’ walk from excellent supermarkets, some of them open 24/7 and wonderful restaurants. The transport links are amazing. There are taxis galore and you are under ten minutes’ walk to Victoria Mainline Station and to the nearest Underground (‘Tube’) station (Victoria Underground in Victoria Mainline Station). The best bus in London stops just before Victoria Station: the No24, which carries you past the Westminster Cathedral, the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, No 10 Downing Street (the residence of the Prime Minister), Trafalgar Square and the National Gallery, on its short ride into the West End, Covent Garden and ‘theatre land’. Victoria Coach Station is just five minutes’ walk away from ‘the Alderney’, with coaches providing quick and easy links to London airports and ferrying you away from London into the wider countryside, to the ferry terminals and even onto Mainland Europe. At Victoria Coach Station you will also find a range of car-hire companies. From Pimlico, if you hire a car, there is easy access to the A3, leading out of London. For visitors from Europe, St Pancras International Station (where the Eurostar ‘docks’) is a 10 minute direct tube ride away, from Victoria Underground Station. More specifically, ‘the Alderney”is a minute's WALK from two terrific restaurants; a FIVE MINUTE WALK to a host of other great restaurants and coffee shops, the local stores of all kinds (from nail-bars to hardware shops), banks, phone shops, post-office, supermarkets and specialist delicatessens, a cab rank, and bike and car hire and coach links to the Continent, to the English countryside, and to all the near-London airports; and an EIGHT MINUTE WALK to the amazing transport hub of Victoria Mainline Station, which also includes buses to every part of London, as well as Victoria Underground ‘Tube’) Station and the Gatwick Express train. Two major theatres are adjacent to Victoria Station. It’s a 10-min WALK to the River Thames, and to the King’s Road (Chelsea), the National Army Museum and the Royal Hospital Chelsea, home to the annual Chelsea Flower Show. It’s a 15 minute WALK to Buckingham Palace, Tate Britain, Lambeth Palace, Westminster Cathedral and St James Park. A 20 minute WALK takes you to the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, No 10 Downing Street, the Queen Elizabeth Conference Centre, the Cabinet Rooms (with their World War Two display) and the major government buildings on Whitehall. Short tube/bus rides take you direct to Harrods, the major Museums in South Kensington (or you can walk to them in 40 minutes), to Oxford Street, Piccadilly Circus, the West End, Trafalgar Square, Covent Garden, the National Gallery, the London Eye, the Imperial War Museum, the Festival Hall, Shakespeare’s Globe, the National Theatre & National Film Theatre, Hayward Gallery, IMAX, Waterloo Station, Tate Modern.

    I had a wonderful stay at Alderney Street! The apartment is newly kitted out with everything I needed in the kitchen and bathroom, as well as having fast wifi! It was very clean, cosy, comfortable and quiet, yet brilliantly located. I could walk to all the city's attractions and really looked forward to coming home to the apartment after long days in the city. I will certainly be staying here again. A real home from home. 22 December 2016 - 09:56:02

    this apartment was perfect for our family of four. Excellent location walkable to tons of tourist attractions, and the apartment itself is immaculate, modern, extremely well organized with everything you need, sparkling clean, and completely quiet. We never needed to contact the owner but they provided extremely thorough and clear instructions for everything we could possibly need. The welcome basket with everything you need for breakfast was a very nice touch, too! Couldn't have asked for more! 01 January 2017 - 14:24:00

    Thank you for the most comfortable stay in what has to be one of the best locations in London. We love walking and luckily the winter weather was bright and dry. We walked to the major museums at South Kensington in 40 minutes, and to the famous Royal Court Theatre in 10. We also watched the Changing of the Guard at nearby Buckingham Palace Your attention to detail is unmatched. We especially loved the wooden toast tongs which meant we didnt need to stick knives down the toaster. 10 January 2017 - 14:33:32

    This is a great apartment -- well cared for, with small details carefully thought out, great location near Victoria Station and lots of nice restaurants. It's perfect in every way. 27 February 2017 - 21:10:00
  6. Sylvie G.
    The apartment is central, well located to visit London and within walking distance of many amenities. The bedroom is located at the back and is quiet, which we really appreciated. The kitchen is well equipped and functional. We enjoyed the welcoming touch of a food basket. The only issue with the apartment is the small size of the bathroom where there is little space to move around or place toileteries. 28 March 2017 - 20:34:00

    Me, my wife and my son (one year old) spend a whole week in this apartment on May 2017 and we really enjoy it! Pimlico is such a quiet place to live; no traffic, no fast cars, no motorbikes, everything is made for a comfortable family life, and you are so close to the Victoria Station, perfect solution if you come to London via Ryanair! The apartment is not so big (two room and bathroom), yes, but it's very efficient, full of very clever space solution, it's full of natural light, very CLEAN and you can find everything you can ask: washing machine with soap, dish washing machine with soap, all you need to cook for a entire family, microwave oven, boiler for tea, electric oven, hairdryer, dress dryer, shampoo, shower gel, a big table, one high chair for the babies, HD TV 40" with NETFLIX, a warm bed and a comfortable sofa! #superaccesorized And what about the owners? They are wonderful. Very kind, ready to give you any info and extremely precise with reservation, explanation and paynents. We really suggest this place to anyone who want live London by day, but take some relax on the evening. Kindly recommended to small families like us or couples. We're gonna come back for sure in this amazing "purple apartment" in Pimlico! :) 17 May 2017 - 12:21:00

    When I was searching for a place to stay in London, I was getting discouraged because none of the available apartments seemed to fit our needs. But when I saw the listing for the Alderney Street apartment, it just seemed to be the right one. And that turned out to be true: we found the apartment to be as close to perfect as possible. My wife called it convenient, comfortable, and clean. The location could not be better close to Victoria Station for easy transit possibilities, yet extremely quiet for sleeping. The apartment had all of the conveniences we needed and we were able to relax comfortably when we returned at the end of the day. Adrienne was incredibly responsive to my emailed questions and she provided copious information about the apartment and surrounding location before we arrived. We greatly appreciated the arrival basket of a bottle of wine, coffee, granola, and other items, as well as the thoughtful provisioning of laundry and dishwasher soaps. When it became unseasonably hot in London while we were there, Adrienne bought a fan and delivered it to the apartment while we were out. That helped cool us off at night and was appreciated. All in all, we could not have been happier with the apartment and we already are planning a return visit! 17 June 2017 - 12:01:00

    This flat was perfect. It is located in a nice neighborhood close to the Victoria Underground station. The owners thought of everything you could possibly need. Adaptors for all the phones, computers, and other electronics. The bed was very comfortable. All the towels and bed linens were very high quality. A nice surprise was the lovely gift basket upon arriving. I can't say enough of the quality of the flat and how responsive the owners were. When we return to London, we will definitely stay here again. 27 June 2017 - 19:33:00

    The owner and her team did everything to make our stay in this beautiful apartment easy and comfortable. The information they provide about the apartment and locality is accurate and useful. Everything in the flat is completely new and it is surprisingly spacious and very bright. The location is very central. We hope to make a return visit soon. 10 January 2017 - 07:49:24

    From the minute we inquired about Adrienne's flat, we knew she'd be a great host. Everything was clear and thorough and the flat was perfect! We were greeted by the housekeeper who left a full basket of provisions- a wonderful touch- and we couldn't have enjoyed our stay more. Thank you! 16 July 2017 - 15:17:00

    Having previously stayed in London hotels, this property gave us freedom and space to escape the city after a busy day sightseeing. The owners really had thought of everything you could possibly need and all at the highest standard. The welcome basket was a lovely touch, we intend to return. 12 August 2017 - 08:55:00
  13. Josh C.
    My wife and I were in London for a week and absolutely loved the place. Very comfy and modern. Great amenities. And we love the pimlico area. Thanks! 26 August 2017 - 20:04:00
  14. Linda H.
    Everything in this apartment was first class.. From the decor, furnishings, appliances, bedding, luxury bathroom, all of the highest quality.. It was a luxury apartment.. From our first contact with Adrienne and her assistant Carole until our departure, we always felt secure and comfortable with their prompt responsiveness. Staying in the apartment was a delight.. It was fun being part of the neighborhood and the location was perfect... Whether walking, taking the tube or bus, we were just a few minutes from every local attraction.. The neighborhood was lovely with great restaurants and shops and groceries.. Adrienne furnished us with so much helpful information before our arrival... It was much appreciated. I can't imagine a nicer place to stay in central London. Thank you for a wonderful stay. 27 September 2017 - 18:15:00

    My wife and I stayed in Adriennes flat in Pimlico for 18 nights and couldn't have made a better choice! The place was clean, beautiful and very well equipped. It had everything you'd need for an extended stay. The location was great as well. Victoria station was a 5-10 min walk away which made exploring London very convenient. We really loved our stay here. Even better than the apartment was the owner, Adrienne. She was beyond helpful and was always quick to reply to any questions. A truly wonderful person! I would highly recommend this flat! It was definitely one of the best VRBO/HomeAway experiences I've had. I'd give it 10 stars if I could! 16 October 2017 - 22:41:00

  18. JJ O.
    This flat is located in a very nice, quiet neighborhood with ease of access to both the Pimlico or Victoria stations (10m walks). The 1 bedroom unit was well equipped with kitchen, living space, and dining area which made for a seamless business trip, and ability to relax in the evenings with the feel of London native. The owner was very prompt on all communications and provided a special breakfast basket on arrival. Would stay again. 18 November 2017 - 13:29:00
