Living Like a Londoner with Citybase Apartments

Posted on 17. Jun, 2012 by in Europe Travel, Reviews, United Kingdom

I couldn’t believe my luck when I opened the door to my Citybase Apartments flat. Or should I say most-luxurious-apartment-I-have-ever-dreamed-of.  Here’s a review of my stay at Citybase Apartments in London.

Citybase Apartments location

Citybase Apartments has tons of properties scattered around London, but I was lucky enough to be booked at 10 Pembridge Gardens in trendy and iconic Notting Hill. And honestly, this was absolutely perfect. I was literally one minute from the Notting Hill Gate tube station, as well as the many buses and restaurants, cafés and shops of Bayswater Road. The location couldn’t be more perfect. The street the apartment is on is very quiet, surprisingly so for being so close to the hustle going on merely a few hundred meters away. I really felt like a posh Londoner for two nights, and that’s totally priceless.

Mission accomplished for the location.

Citybase Apartments rooms

As I said, the property is as luxurious as can be, as are the rooms. And to my big surprise, they are also incredibly large. I had never seen a hotel room or a vacation rental (and trust me, I’ve seen my fair share) this size in London before. The bathroom itself was at least twice the size of a regular bathroom in other establishments! There was a small but very functional kitchen fully-equipped with dishwasher, a much-appreciated washing/drying machine and small fridge. There is also a small table with two chairs, a big, comfy couch, a large desk/vanity… and the best part is yet to come.

The bed. Oh my dear Lord. THE BED. I didn’t even want to get up in the morning! The bed was huge, super comfortable, and stylish too with a beautiful upholstered headboard. It felt like heaven to my sore muscles and tired mind.

My verdict

I absolutely loved my stay at Citybase Apartments and I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone looking for high quality vacation rentals in the heart of London’s most vibrant neighborhoods. You will not be disappointed with the very efficient customer service of Citybase Apartments!
