The film “Notting Hill” with Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts was filmed round the corner and will give you a good feel for the area. The flat is excellent for seeing central London - Knightsbridge, the West End theatres, The Natural History museum, The Science Museum, The Victoria & Albert museum, The British Library etc. There are three underground stations and 5 bus routes on the doorstep. Portobello Market for fresh fruit and veg and many famous restaurants and continental coffee shops.

The space
The room is 10 square meters and has a standard single bed with an electric blanket for cold nights. The carpets are hovered about every 3-4 days and washed once a month. The linen is all fresh with each new guest. ( Warning! London has very hard water – that is very high calcium levels. There are white deposits everywhere there is water! My new glass kettle had deposits within 3 days. It is not harmful but does not look good. It also makes towels and other materials stiff and they look old very quickly but is only the calcium.

If someone is staying a long time the carpets are cleaned every 7 days and all linen is changed. If you want maid service with carpets hovered daily, if you want to have someone clean up after you daily than book into a hotel. The nearest hotel is 7 minutes walk away and the rates are £175 - £275 a night.

Where you’ll be

London, England, United Kingdom

This is a famous area full of famous faces. It is often used as a location for movies and TV. I have buried my face ( while turning round after paying for my fruit ) into the chest of the possible next very handsome James Bond and fallen into the arms of one of the worst villains in Hollywood. Stars, actors, authors, news presenters, politicians, musicians, rappers ……
