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! ”
