Palace Gardens Apartment
Set on one of London's prettiest streets, the one bedroom Palace Gardens vacation apartment is located in a beautiful Victorian white stucco building and sleeps 3 people in stylish comfort. Located on the sought-after second floor, the living room of the vacation apartment would have served as the ballroom or grand reception room in Victorian times. It is one flight up to the flat, or approximately 25 steps (as with most Victorian buildings, there is no elevator). The short term let has been remodeled and furnished to high standards. The prime Kensington location makes it ideal for a vacation in London. Step outside each morning and walk through Kensington Gardens to the Palace, to museums and landmarks excellent restaurants, supermarkets, antique shops and design boutiques.
