Kensington Olympia is located in West London and well placed for Central London and all the tourist attractions London has to offer.

The apartment is a 10 minute walk away from the open spaces of Holland Park and the shopping on High Street Kensington. The Kensington Olympia Exhibition Halls are just a 5 minute walk down the road.

It is close to the famous Westfield where you can shop to your heart's desire. WIth brands like Zara, GAP, Marks & Spencer, Gucci, Prada, De Beers, etc you will be spoilt for choice.

5 minutes away from the apartment is the local shopping centre, West 12. Here there is a supermarket, a multi screen cinema and a series of fast food chains like McDonald's.

There are 2 underground stations nearby. Kensington Olympia is the closest underground station and is found 3 minutes away down the road. This is just 1 stop away from Earls' Court. The other underground station is Shepherd's Bush which is approximately 10 minutes walk away. This station is just 2 stops away from Notting Hill (4 minutes on the train) where you can go and visit the famous Portobello Road and 5 stops away from Marble Arch station (10 minutes on the train) where you can see Marble Arch,Oxford Street and Hyde Park. Both stations are located in zone 2. Stay on the train for 15 minutes and you reach the stop for the British Museum.

Guests have access to the entire apartment with a full basic kitchen and all cooking utensils as well as a washing machine which can be very useful even on a short stay! There is free fast WiFI internet. All bedding is provided and heating and electricity is included in the price of your stay. Simple!

I try to keep my interaction with you to a minimum. I am here if you have any questions but I will not constantly bother you during your holiday. You are here to enjoy!

I love this neighbourhood because it is peaceful and quiet with a traditional English feel. There are some really good gastro pubs and restaurants nearby. The Westfield - Europe's largest shopping mall is 5 minutes away and this is very convenient.

The sites of London are easily accessible and High Street Kensington is just a short walk away.

Public transport here is great! You have Kensington Olympia station just down the road 2 minutes away. This has good links to Chelsea and further south.

At Shepherds Bush is the central line where trains come every 2-3 minutes. It is a great stop taking you to Portobello Road, Notting Hill, Kensington gardens, Hyde park, Marble Arch, Oxford Street, British Museum, St Pauls and Stratford!

You can also take GoldHawk Road or Shepherds Bush Market stations for Baker Street, the Sherlock Holmes Museum and Madam Tuasaauds!

Don't forget to bring your own towels!

    Nous ne regrettons pas notre choix. L'appartement était très bien.
    Les points positifs:
    - proche du métro: à pied à peine 5 min de kensington olympia desservi le week-end uniquement et moins de 10min de Shepherd bush, où on trouve aussi des commerces pour remplir le frigo à l arrivée ! jolie rue, calme.
    - Espace correct: une chambre, une sdb, un salon cuisine avec un canapé lit + 1 lit en mezzanine mais trop dangereux pour nous, nous avons préféré le canapé lit pour notre second couchage.
    - Linge de lit, serviettes de bain, savon, shampooing, gel douche, thé, café... fournis

    Les points négatifs:
    - La propreté ! Le ménage avait été fait, les sols étaient propres. En revanche, les couverts, la bouilloire, les casseroles, tout est très sale, le ménage dans la salle de bain pas top du tout non plus, surtout les toilettes. + toiles d araignée, poussière.

    Hormis les défauts au niveau ménage, l appartement est vraiment très bien.

    S'est excusé quant nous avons appelé, désespérés par l'état déplorable de l'appartement non nettoyé. Sinon, silence radio.

Obi ~ The shower in this unit was completely broken even before I arrived. Julian said he would fix it. But it remains broken and in need of repair.

Je m'attendais à une chambre un peu plus grande car nous étions 3. Mais vu le rapport qualité pris cela me convient.

Ungenügende Sauberkeit im ganzen Apartment (dreckige Bäder und Toiletten, dreckige Fenster, dreckiges Geschirr, schmieriger Kühlschrank etc.) Dies passt nicht zum Preisniveau des Apartments! Leider mussten wir uns selbst um etwas Sauberkeit bemühen, da dies Skyrise nicht übernommen hat, trotz mehrer Absprachen. Wir hatten leider dadurch in unserem Urlaub viel negative Zeit damit verbringen müssen, mit Skyrise zu diskutieren und Sauberkeit ins Apartment zu bekommen.
