The flat was in a perfect location in Notting Hill with a bus stop around the corner that whisked us to Notting Hill Gate tube station; there were dozens of great grocery stores, markets and a wide range of restaurants within walking distance. But, with the exception of a comfortable bed (two twins pushed together), there was no getting over the misery-provoking furniture.
Our hosts, who left for Paris literally ten minutes after our arrival, eventually returned and were grateful we told them about the uncomfortable furniture. They took a turn on the couch and said they were going upstairs (Our flat was in the basement while they occupied the upper stories of the rowhouse.) to order a new one immediately. I hope they did because the flat did have its advantages, not least among them a lovely little garden that could be accessed by sliding glass doors from the living/dining area.

David and I don't think we'll ever stay there again, (It also drove us nuts to have only a tub and no shower.) but the price was right at £583 for the week and there was no security deposit. If you'd like to take a look at the property details, click here.
