We enjoyed our stay at the Salisbury. It was nicely decorated, conveniently located near a tube station in a perfect location, featured several added touches like welcome treats and helpful info about the surrounding neighborhood. The London Perfect staff was super responsive. Minor repairs are needed in the bathroom, and the patio furniture needs to be replaced. That said, we'd stay at the Salisbury again and again!
The Salisbury is a wonderful apartment. The flat is beautifully designed and comfortably appointed. The neighborhood is quiet and typifies South Kensington. The Gloucester Road Underground station is a five-minute walk and is near a large Waitrose food market. The London Perfect team were gracious, very responsive and in all aspects highly professional.

I have stayed in several London Perfect flats and this is definitely my favorite. The front room is so light and airy, artistically appointed, and comfortable - great place for drinking coffee and writing. The bed is comfy and the flat has all the amenities. I highly recommend staying here if you have the chance!

Salisbury is a very good one bedroom apartment near Gloucester Road station. The front room is lovely and the bedroom is out the back, away from any road noise.

This is the fifth apartment we have rented through the Paris/London/Italy Perfect family and we were very pleased with the Salisbury apartment. The Salisbury is in a great location near the Gloucester Road Tube station and many good restaurants. The apartment is quite roomy and had everything we needed for our stay. We dined at Launceston Place and had an outstanding dinner...one of the best meals ever. Also PAUL patisserie is amazing. We appreciate the services London Perfect provides, in particular the friendly greeter, Lushi driver, and welcome guide (however, it could be updated). Thank you for a great time in London.

Everyone who saw our pictures on FB thought we were staying in a palace. The Salisbury is a gorgeous place to stay, steps from the Gloucester tube station, a very convenient Waitrose, and just tons of pubs and restaurants. An added bonus is that many of the Premium Tours day trip tour busses pick up and drop off at the Gloucester station, making it even more convenient for this who want to get out of the city. I can't say enough about this lovely property, and we were truly sad to leave it. Hope to see it again soon!

Fabulous Christmas holiday in fabulous London! The Salisbury was superb...both elegant and cozy. So convenient to two tubes, shops, restaurants and cafes, and museums. And our hosts were more than helpful and extremely attentive. Absolutely 5 stars!

The Salisbury was the perfect apartment in the perfect location. We enjoyed the beautiful sitting room, with the tall windows looking out at the square, for our morning coffee and afternoon wine. The kitchen and bathroom were fine, attractively designed and stocked with necessities. We appreciated all of the storage in the bedroom, although the very small bed took some getting used to. The apartment is very quiet, while close to many conveniences, when inside we were in our own world. The location was ideal, close to The Tube and buses for long trips, but within walking distance of many sites for those who want to spend the day on foot. Our first day we walked to Parliament, Westminster Abbey, then to Tate Britain. A full day of walking but the perfect way to really see London. We also enjoyed a walk across Albert Bridge to beautiful Battersea Park. Within a mile is Kensington High Street where we shopped at Marks and Spencer and Whole Foods.We definitely felt that the Salisbury was home for our week in London.

Absolutely lovely and tremendously comfortable! The Salisbury is located in a prime part of London within the very charming Stanhope Gardens-the Gloucester Road tube station is mere minutes away, as is a Waitrose market. We highly recommend this property, and plan to return!

This is a great flat, great location, and close to many restaurants and sights. I loved the big windows and the decor in the flat was London Perfect. Dealing with Lushi for pickup at the airport was easy and saved us alot of stress. Thank you London Perfect for making our first time in London special, we are already planning our next trip and will be using you again.

We had a wonderful stay at the Salisbury. Our host was waiting for us when we arrived and reviewed what we needed to know about the place. It was comfortable, attractive, and spacious. One of the best aspects was it's proximity to the Gloucester Rd tube stop, which goes to all parts of London. In the 10 days there we only took a taxi once. There are many restaurants and shops nearby, and it is very safe-feeling. There is a beautiful park across the street.

Location, Location, Location. The apartment was amazing and so beautifully appointed including lovely artwork. The terrace off the front provided us a wonderful view of a residential street in Kensington along with and a community garden. Our entire experience using London Perfect was amazing and very high touch. We were greeted at the apartment by a young gentleman named Edward who walked us through all of the apartment's amenities and the local things to see and do. Items to note: - The apartment is old but has tremendous charm and character. - The bed was very comfortable but very small. - The kitchen again very small and dated. - WIFI connection was a hit or miss.

We wanted to live like the Londoners and the Salisbury apartment located at the Stanhope Gardens was just great! 1- Very nicely decorated apartment. We especially enjoyed relaxing in the living room at the end of the long walking day. 2- Location is perfect! Within walking distance to the Victoria and Albert, Natural Science and other museums. The tube is just 3 minutes walking distance. There are restaurants, pubs and food store very near. 3- Quiet location! We hardly ever heard a police car or fire truck horn. One night we slept with the window open and we didn't hear anything! We really enjoyed our stay at the Salisbury and would recommend with no hesitation.
We loved the Salisbury apartment. The size was perfect for the two of us, and the location was ideal. Any needs we had were met immediately. We will rent with London Perfect again!
