I cannot recommend more about this house. The house itself is very spatious and of very high quality, with high ceiling, wood floor, all the modern amennities you can think of, and very tasteful design. It is so comfortable to stay in the house that sometimes I didn't want to go out. The location is also ideal, with very beautiful and quiet neighhood, two tube stations nearby, south kensington high street and hyde park within walking distance. Robin was very responsive and helpful, although we haven't met. All in all, this is an ideal house for up to four people. The pictures haven't done enough justice to it. We have our best ever airbnb experience here. Thank you Robin!

Beautiful, modern and very conveniently situated flat in London's lovely and quiet Kensington area - just perfect for a party of four as we were. Robin is indeed the perfect host; always communicating and doing his absolute best to accommodate any wishes. I wouldn't hesitate to return here, and I will be recommending Robin as host to everyone looking for a high quality place to stay and a very attentive host. Thank you, Robin!

The flat is in a great location - close to two Tube stations, restaurants, supermarkets, bakery, and Starbucks. The flat was clean, spacious, and everything - appliances, showers, toilets, wifi, etc. - worked, like home! There is plenty of natural light in all rooms. Robin is responsive to questions and provided great suggestions on restaurants in the area. We had a great stay and would recommend this flat to friends.

This was my third Airbnb to rent in London and it was the best pick, yet. First of all, Robin is the best and most responsive host I've had, the flat was immaculate, and in a very upscale location. Close to Gloucester Road tube station and Earls Court. It's actually right in the middle of the two stations which gives you easy access to get almost anywhere you want to go in London. And, a straight shot to Heathrow (all terminals). The flat is updated with two nice bathrooms and a fully equipped kitchen. We cooked many meals while we were there. There is a nice terrace to sit and enjoy the scenery while having a glass of wine! There is a grocery store, literally, a five minute walk away (if that!). Restaurants, coffee shops, and cafes all right there. Ten to fifteen minute walk to Kensington Palace, Hyde Park, and Whole Foods. I could go on and on complimenting Robin and his flat. Also, I choose my Airbnb rentals from reading reviews so there is a reason Robin has so many good reviews! Cheers, Roxanna
