Quite literally opposite Hyde Park, it's safe to say that this apartment's location is one of a kind with High Street Kensington, Knightsbridge and Hyde Park Corner all within reach. For those in need of a culture fix, you'll find the V&A and National History museums just a fifteen-minute stroll away. Back home, the open-plan living space is fresh and modern, with its red L-shaped sofa, dramatic spotlighting and glass coffee table filled with books and magazines for those rainy days inside. We love the contemporary kitchen with its sleek cooking island and crittall windows – it's the perfect spot to knock up a lazy brunch. Whilst one of the bedrooms is noticeably smaller than the other two here, all three come accompanied by swanky en-suite bathrooms, so it's ideal for those discerning groups after their own private space with luxurious mod-cons. Last but certainly not least, bookmark any day spent wandering this affluent neighbourhood, with a bottle of something nice out on your private balcony. For a well put together bolthole on the doorstep of a myriad of boutiques, pubs and restaurants, this is a great option.

Home truths

    As this apartment is quite close to the ground floor and in a central area you can expect to hear some noise, especially with the windows open

    The third bedroom on the second floor is considerably smaller than the others and doesn't have any storage space, so you will have to use one of the other bedrooms to unpack your belongings

    The lift in this building is quite small, which means you may need to take a few trips up and down if there are many in your party or if you are carrying large luggage

    Children under 6 stay free of charge here – if you're bringing a little one, the host provides a baby cot upon request

    There's no washing machine at this home

About Kensington

Affluent and incredibly central, Kensington is a great base for exploring London on foot. Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park are on your doorstep and so are the Victoria and Albert, Science, and Natural History Museums. The streets are attractive and well maintained (grand, white stucco facades aplenty) and your neighbours will be a wealthy, conservative set. Lots of positives but probably not the place to let your hair down.
