This lovely flat was all you could hope for..
First there is the flat itself, which is truly a gem. It was lovely and bright, with comfortable beds and a wonderful garden...which we used to unwind after a long day of sightseeing. As ground floor flats go, this one was very quiet and made us feel safe.
Then, there is the location. At the crossroads of Portobello Road and Golborne Road, you have access to anything you need - post office on corner, loads of great restaurants and cafes, pharmacy, and with the market a stone's throw away, amazing fruits & vegetables stalls, butcher, fantastic wine merchants (the list goes on and on), should you wish to stay in and cook.
Notting Hill is a vibrant neighborhood - great for individuals as well as families.
The nearest tube is Ladbroke Grove, which got us to all the central attractions within minutes. There is also great bus lines nearby that will take you to Oxford Circus, Piccadilly, Trafalgar Square, etc. All you need is an Oyster Card, which you can purchase at the station or nearby stores. If you need assistance, an attendant at Ladbroke Grove Station is willing to help.
The folks at Hostmaker (Jean and Sophie) were amazing, from helping me make last minute plans when my previous Primrose Hill booking canceled last minute, to meeting three weary travelers and ensuring we had everything we needed - they are truly top notch.
I just wish we had more time. Oh well, there is always next year!
