The apartment is on a quiet street just around the corner from the High Street Kensington tube station - a perfect location for getting around London. Hyde Park and many attractions are a close walk away. Holland Park is lovely. There are lots of really good restaurants - and a Whole Foods! - nearby. The kitchen is complete for cooking. The apartment has a washing machine, and a great surprise, a dryer as well. We arrived with dirty clothes after a wet week walking in Donegal and I thought I’d have to take laundry out. What a nice surprise. The bed was a very comfortable king. The apartment is smaller, but it was perfect for 2 people. We arrived later than expected but getting in was easy - the directions were very clear. Thanks for a great stay! We would enthusiastically recommend this apartment to others.

The communication with Ivy Lettings was timely, clear and overall great. The personal greeter at the location we stayed was very nice and the concept of a greeter is a great touch. I do wish we had access to extra towels and blankets. Some time before we checked into the property, we were asked how many people we needed towels for and received only enough for each person to use one towel. It would have been ideal to have access to one or two more in the event necessary. The weather was changing frequently so the bedding was a little challenging to support a comfortable sleep. The bed did not have separate sheets beyond a fitted mattress sheet and comforter. Some nights it was too hot to be under the comforter but too chilly to kick it off completely, so it would have been better to have access to a light blanket. Overall my experience was Ivy Lettings was great.

I have found Ivy to be a great value. The representatives are knowledgeable, dependable, and pleasant. The flats (I have rented 5 on 2 visits, needing 4 for a group one year) have been as depicted, generally well-stocked, comfortable, safe, and convenient. A good value all in all. I highly recommend them and hope to use Ivy in the future. (I don't know if it's a standard thing in self-catering flats in London, but a couple items seemed strangely low in quantity--toilet paper and paper towels/napkins. While the 5 flats I rented had plenty of washing up products, coffee makings, trash bags, and laundry ingredients, none of them had enough paper goods for the time we were there. Maybe it's the expectation for customers to have to provide these. I wasn't surprised to have no tissues (as many hotels in Europe don't), but I was surprised to have to go shopping for toilet paper. Ha! Also I found it funny that in England, in the land of tea, both the flats I used had plenty of coffee stuff of all sorts but not any tea, so I had to purchase tea, also. That may be dependent on the specific flat's stocking, I realize.)

We spent six nights in the Cheniston Gardens flat and enjoyed the location very much, just a few blocks from High St. Kensington tube stop, also convenient for good pubs, shops, and restaurants in the neighborhood. Flat is very comfortable (especially the firm king size bed) and well appointed, also quiet. Only suggestions would be to provide a bath mat and paper towels which we missed during our stay. We would definitely try to book this flat again on our next trip to London - thanks Ivy Lettings!

The property and location "exceeds expectations!" Four minutes to High Street Kensington station, Marks & Spencer, Boots, wonderful gastropub, shopping and much more. Walking distance to major parks, monuments and museums. Quiet neighborhood, and cozy well-equipped flat: full kitchen well stocked, small balcony, nice linens and towels, washer dryer, bathtub and super king sized bed (yay!). Have already recommended it to friends traveling to London in the fall.

The apartment was a perfect spot for our eight night stay after Christmas. The location is first-rate, with shops and restaurants of all variety within three blocks. Bus/tube access is superb (9/10 buses were a nice alternative to the tube). The apartment itself is fully equipped with a well-stocked kitchen, superb washer and (vented!) dryer, spacious bathroom, large and comfortable bed, and a warm and cozy living room. It really did feel like home.

The apartment is located on a quiet side street but yet is only 2 blocks from Kensington High Street where there are a variety of shops and places to eat and drink. The Kensington High Street Underground stop is only about 3 blocks away and you can get on the Circle and District lines which will take you anywhere in London. The apartment was clean, nicely furnished and the kitchen fully supplied. Ivy Lettings was very responsive and helpful and I would rent from them again.

The staff were extremely helpful with details and response time whenever i sent an email. Once we booked, the detailed emails and attachments with photos were great. The person who met us and checked us in, spent 10-15 minutes at the most walking us through a few things. All very smooth and helpful. What a lovely flat! We found it clean, spacious and well-equipped. The beds and bedding were luxurious! The soaps/body washes in the bathrooms were ok - they did not lather very well. The dishwasher and washing machine/dryer were great and easy to use. We appreciated the soaps! There were just a couple of minor things lacking - it would have been great to have luggage racks in each room. Also, we did not find a place to hang our coats - so maybe a coat rack or even some hooks would be good to have installed. While your price point was a bit higher that some other places I found, we really appreciated the flat! It was quiet overall and easy to get to everywhere. I realize now that you directed us to use London Bridge station - and while google maps shows Tower Hill as just as close to the flat, it does not account for all the stairs. You may want to explicitly say that London Bridge station is the better one to use - we figured that out with our luggage!

Although we had an issue with the boiler in the flat we stayed in, (it was January!), the Ivy Lettings team provided fast response to the apparent problem. However, when it became apparent that the work would require a part that was one day away, they offered to let us move to another location, (with heat and hot water!) Ultimately, we did not move, (we had an electric heater), the repair was completed, and Ivy Lettings refunded the money for the two days that we were inconvenienced, which we deemed fair. The accommodations were otherwise great, (very close to Kensington North train station), and perfect for our needs, (once it warmed up). The company did everything to make it right, and, all things considered, I would not hesitate to recommend Ivy Lettings to anyone heading to London. Problems can happen to anyone, and these folks dealt with them promptly and responsibly.

We had a wonderful stay in this lovely apartment in Kensington. The apartment is perfectly located on a very quiet street. This is a real bonus in such a busy city as London. It is close to the tube which made it easy to reach any place in London you wish to visit. The apartment contained all mod cons, and had a super king bed, which are hard to find in London properties. It all made for a very comfortable and relaxing stay. The property managers Katie and Holly were easy to contact and very approachable, and ensured that everything went smoothly during our stay. We would definitely stay in this apartment again when next we visit London.

This apartment is perfect--large enough to feel like I have ample space, but not more space than I need. It is nicely appointed, and walking distance from two tube stations--High St. Kensington is no more than a 2 minute walk around the corner. It is in a quiet neighborhood and the neighbors even said hello while I was there. I was there for work, so I can't say whether it's better for tourism or not. Still, there is shopping within easy walking distance and a number of west end neighbors nearby. A large Sainsbury grocery store within walking distance as well. Perfect for my one week in London. On a related note, Ivy Lettings is a superb company. I've rented from them twice now and they are detailed and meticulous. Each time I've rented a small travel problem has unexpectedly come up on my end, and Ivy has always been able to find an easy solution. Sometimes their places cost a little bit more, but I rent from them anyway because I know they're reliable and easy to deal with.

I have spent almost one week at Cheniston Gardens together with my wife and my daughter aged 7 and I dare to say it’s a perfect accommodation for a family like mine. The apartment is located in a quiet and nice area few minutes distance from Kensington High Street Tube station. We found the property utterly in order and since the beginning we were able to find whatever needed to start living our holiday from the very beginning. The flat is perfectly equipped and you can take advantage of the wi-fi connection or enjoy your preferred programs on the generous TV screen. No need to mention kitchen where nothing you could need is missed. Your shopping is made easy by several supermarkets at walk distance ( WholeFood, Tesco, M&S etc etc). Check-in and check-out procedures are the easiest possible thus no hassle of inflexible check-out time or long time-wasting inspections before the leave. Again a massive thanks to IvyLettings which can be granted to have a found a new, faithful and constant customer.

The flat has everything you need during your stay including fully equipped kitchen, washer/dryer, and fast wi-fi connection. If there is any downside it is the stairs to the flat. No problem for us but if you have mobility issues it may be a bit much. The flat is very cosy and quiet so no street noise. Highly recommend the Scarsdale Tavern which is an easy walk. Hidden little local pub where we saw Ben Stiller pop in for a pint. Great food and friendly staff. Also Kensington Tandoori for great Indian takeaway on the way back tot he flat. Don't hesitate to rent this flat!
