Nell Gwynn House is an iconic art deco building on Sloane Avenue in the heart of The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. The building is named after the actress and mistress of King Charles II, Nell Gwynn, who lived in nearby Pall Mall in a house provided by the King.
This landmark building was erected in 1937 to provide luxury serviced accommodation to affluent residents, drawn to this prestigious area of London by the excellent shopping in fashionable Knightsbridge (Harrods) Sloane Street and the Kings Road and its proximity to parks, arts and entertainment available in the area. Nell Gwynn House is just a 5 minute walk from both Sloane Square and South Kensington Tube Stations allowing guests to move swiftly and easily in and around London to explore this fine city.
The apartments are very well located and within walking distance for major visitor attractions such as the Natural History Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum, as well as all the other museums to be found on Exhibition Road. Hyde Park, Kensington Palace, Buckingham Palace and the Albert Memorial are also nearby. There are numerous excellent Michelin starred fine-dining restaurants and performance venues in the vicinity including the Royal Court Theatre at Sloane Square, The Royal Albert Hall and the Cadogan Concert Hall, just two minutes walk from Nell Gwynn House. The world famous 606 Jazz club is nearby and you are spoilt for choice with art galleries – The Saatchi Gallery is practically on the doorstep.
As an example, apartment 227 is a newly refurbished contemporary one bedroom second floor flat in Nell Gwynn House. The property benefits from a bright, airy and spacious reception room, open-plan fitted kitchen with washing machine/dryer, dishwasher, safe and a double bedroom with built-in storage. The bathroom is newly fitted and has a walk-in shower. Further benefits include wooden flooring, modern décor and appliances and a sofa bed which sleeps an additional 2 people. There is free wifi and sky TV and also a 24 hour Porter’s service. A daily cleaning service can be arranged for guests at additional cost.
The apartments offer more spacious accommodation at very competitive rates compared to top Chelsea hotel rooms of a similar standard and in my opinion, offer excellent value for visitors to London whether on vacation or for business trips. Nell Gwynn Chelsea Accommodation apartments are available for stays between 1 and 13 weeks and can be booked at Nell Gwynn Accommodation or +44 (0)20 7581 6273.
