Location, location, location
This location in London was a Dream! We could walk to everything and the property was so nice. Great beds, great bathrooms, fabulous kitchen. It was just across the park from the Palace and down the street from Prince Charles's house! I would say the only drawback was that it was in such a posh area that finding a nearby cafe was tough. Most of the restaurants within a few blocks radius were pretty pricey, and the bigger grocery stores were not close by. But I would not have traded our stay here for anything! You just plan ahead and eat somewhere while sightseeing. I loved it and would stay here again given the chance.”
Always a pleasure to come back
Everyone is always so helpful and accommodating, making this property one of the best we’ve stayed in!”
Another great stay!
Wonderful flat with everything you need in a great neighborhood!”
Stayed here for the second time!.. this place is great.. near everything.. its huge. right in the heart of mayfair.. walking distance to the Palace, novikov, ritz... everything!”
Palace View in London
Lovely triplex flat in the perfect location. We loved being in this meticulous apartment, which was walking distance or a short cab ride away from everything. The terrace was especially welcome due to the beautiful weather we had during our week visit in May.. Pat Magdol”
Wonderful apartment which works well for a small family or 2 couples. The amenities are more than taken care of with high quality appliances and many comfortable spaces to lounge and relax after a day of sightseeing! My family was able to walk to many tourist attractions and access Underground and bus within 10 minutes. Concierge service a text away and very reponsive. Will definitely try to return for another visit in the near future!”
As good as it gets
Wonderful location; classy and very comfortable home and drinks on the rooftop could not be beat. Bill”
This is our second stay at Palace view and it was fantastic. The flat is wonderful, the location spot on, and the service impeccable. ”
Another fine stay
Comfortable, clean and wonderful London experience. Great service! ”
Fabulous and stylish London flat. Great service and management!”
We stayed in this incredible flat in December 2017. Loved every minute! The flat is in the middle of everything London has to offer. We were able to walk everywhere. The Christmas decorations in London are so beautiful. The home had everything we needed and the host offered great tips on things to do. I would highly recommend this property.”
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Quintess Collection Palace view in London. It was a very well equipped and decorated apartment in a perfect location for seeing all the main attractions in town. Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate for most of the week we were there but the apartment was a perfect refuge from the elements. The only hesitation I have about the place is that it would not be very suitable for anyone who had trouble with stairs. Even though there was an elevator in the building you had to climb a full floor before you got to the elevator. As well we usually climbed all the way up to the apartment, 3 floors, because my wife was reluctant to use the elevator. It was a temperamental contraption that had a mind of its own no matter how you tried to use it. Walking up did not bother us but I can see someone with a disability would have trouble and I think this should be mentioned in the description on the Third Home website. ”
Luxury in St. James
This is a beautiful and comfortable flat with everything one needs for a special visit to London for work, pleasure, or both.. The Quintess team is proactive and truly on top of every detail. I hope to stay here again often. ”
Very comfortable apartment!
A terrific spot from which to tour London. We found the apartment well supplied and comfortable in all respects.”
Great location. The flat was huge, and comfortable.. Highly recommend staying here.. It was close to everything.. shopping on bond street, the tube, buckingham palace, etc.”
The apartment in London is quite simply indescribable, from the moment we arrived everything was perfect. The Quintess manager in London, Ronan, could not have been more charming and efficient. He anticipated our every need. The housekeeper, Gloria, was wonderful. The location of this marvelous triplex was perfect, near museums, shops, restaurants and many monuments. We hope to be able to return soon. Cecilia Kempton C”
Lovely apartment in excellent location
Palace View is a high-quality apartment, nicely furnished and superbly equipped with one of the best addresses in London. Our host, Ronan, and housekeeper, Gloria, looked after us really well, providing services more akin to those of a 5-star hotel than a private home. Both bedrooms are excellent sizes with very comfortable beds and ensuites which offer hip baths (one with jacuzzi) as well as walk in showers. The apartment is surprisingly quiet given its location and security is very good with a lift opening straight into the penthouse on two levels. The top floor office with terrace is a real bonus although in February we weren't able to take full advantage of the terrace! We would highly recommend this lovely apartment for anyone wanting to visit London.”
fantastic location and aparmtent
great service provided by Ronan”
A Perfect Experience!!!!
This property in London's Mayfair was absolutely the best!! The flat was beautifully done, it had everything one could possibly want in addition to sophistication and location. We hosted a cocktail party for 12 one evening, and everything we needed was there to make it a success. The Green Park tube was a 5 minute walk. Excellent restaurants, shops and Piccadilly Circus were also within a few minutes walk. Ronan McFadden was a gracious and very helpful host. We WILL be back...I cant recommend this highly enough! Quintess was quintessentially First Class! ”
