This unusually spacious apartment has a large living room and an even larger separate dining area with seating for up to four guests. There is a well equipped modern kitchen with fridge, freezer, dish-washer, oven & hob, microwave and full cooking equipment. Norfolk House has a well-proportioned bedroom, with modern king size bed, and plenty of storage space. There is a newly renovated bathroom with travertine tiling and modern bath and shower handle, and plenty of hot water. Towels and bed linen are provided. There is also a very comfortable double sofa bed in the sitting room suitable for one adult or two kids. There is a widescreen TV in the sitting room with all freeview channels, and DVD. Also an ipod docking station and free wifi broadband access. The property is cleaned before and after your visit, and there is also a washing machine available. There is security intercom access from the street below. There are a variety of local shops and pubs around Brook Green, and also a short walk/taxi ride away on High Street Kensington you will find a huge array of world class restaurants and big-name shops. The new mega-mall at Westfield (the biggest in Europe) with its extensive retail, restaurant, leisure and transport facilities is also within easy walking distance. Please note: Check in is at 3pm. Check out is at 11am. We try to be flexible with this wherever possible, but it is frequently not possible due to other bookings. To guarantee an early check in, guests would need to also book the night the before so that we can block that date out on the calendar. Or you can use the fabulous AirPortr bag delivery service to get your bags delivered later in the day. And there is also a handy left luggage facility just up the road at Westfield shopping mall anyway which we can give you the address for. We manage six 'home from home' apartments in the London Kensington Olympia area. We pride ourselves on our warm welcome and the fact that we will be on hand 24/7 for any information requests or to resolve any problems. We have a full time housekeeper on hand, the indomitable Ana, and we are always reachable by phone or email. Please note that all of these apartments are exclusive dedicated full time short let apartments, they are not people's homes just vacated! My husband works for the world's foremost upmarket travel magazine and he loves to pass on any hidden gems in London he has discovered. We look forward to hearing from you and it will be a pleasure to accommodate you during your trip to London. We love our little portfolio of apartments and we are sure you will too! Warm regards LizzieMore
