Lovely, comfortable apartment in a great location. Easy access to shops, public transport and the parks. Will definitely stay here again when we return to London.
Beautiful quiet locationby Jolyn & Rob G
Great location, close to Kensington Palace and other London tourist sites. Beautiful quiet location with quaint lane and shops opposite. Useful grocery supplies in kitchen. We hope to visit again.
Wonderful stayby Paula
Gordon is a great apartment with a well-arranged use of space and with everything you need in order to feel right at home in the wonderful city of London. A surplus is it's location in a great neighborhood where you'll find fun shops, cafes and historical sights worth exploring. Our stay went flying by too quickly! Thank-you Perfect London!
Absolutely perfect!by Naomi
This was a perfect apartment in a quiet location that was also extremely close to restaurants, groceries and public transport. The apartment was extremely clean and I was very comfortable - the apartment had everything I needed. As a single traveller, I also felt very safe. I used the driving services recommended by London Perfect (Lushi's drivers) and they were exceptional - thank you for everything!

Thé Gordonby Linda Dupuis-Pepin
We could not have asked for a better location. We were just steps away from transportation and shops. So convenient. The appartement is cute as a button and tastefully done with a kitchen fully equipped. The apartment was tucked away in a quiet area which made for good night sleeps. Thank you again for a lovely stay
Location was amazingby Molly F
This location was amazing. Quiet neighborhood, but still close to tons of things to walk to and easily accessible. I would definitely stay at this location again. They do greet you on sight to check you in and answer questions.
Fantastic Locationby Catherine Pennington
The Gordon Apartment is a cheerful, one bedroom on a quiet mews just off High Street Kensington. I loved the convenient location, well stocked kitchen, and light filled living/dining room. Having Saint Mary Abbotts Church as your neighbor means you can watch little ones on their walk to school out the kitchen window and listen to exquisite church bells on Sunday. I loved staying here and look forward to another visit.
We had a great stayby Jon S
We had a great stay. The apartment was comfortable and great location. I do think you might want to let people know bedroom is located right next to building entry. There a light that stays on all night and the noise of this function. I’m a heavy sleeper so did not bother me. Please let us know when this apartment is available again and we will book a return.
Amazing Apartment in a Great Location.by Avi W
Amazing Apartment in a Great Location. The communication with London Perfect from booking to arrival was excellent and they even had a greeter waiting for us to check in. The unit is spacious enough for a family of four and the location can't be any better. Located on a quiet little street, three minutes to the tube station, grocery stores and lots of restaurants on Kensington High Street. Highly recommend booking with London Perfect and this unit in particular.
Gordon Reviewby Maria B
The apartment was perfect for our holiday for our family of three. Sunny, bright, clean and very comfortable. All the conveniences are close by to make a meal at the apartment or go out for a coffee or restaurant. The location made for terrific stay. The apartment is adjacent to a church yard so its quiet and its hard to believe we were in the heart of Kensington. The staff were helpful and all the essentials provided. Would stay here again if we are fortunate enough to return sometime soon.
Quiet Kensington One Bedroom Aptby susan gibbons
One bedroom apartment was on main floor with several stairs outside of building but all easy for luggage and daily activities. Very quiet and charming side alley street with several coffee shops and other convenience stores and restaurants close. Tube was around the corner allowing access to anyplace in London quickly and economically. Not near busy tourist area so it was nice to arrive back at apartment even though we mostly trained or taxied to museums, bars, theatres and restaurants. I would stay here again and enjoyed the respite from active London in a very upscale neighborhood at a fraction of the cost of a high end hotel which would not provide ability for kitchen, clothes washing and living area space. We have also stayed in Paris Perfect apt on the Isle de Cite at Place Dauphine. Both places have been perfect.
