We had tickets for Royal Albert Hall and wanted somewhere close, this was ideal. Nice size room with separate kitchen with all electrical goods we needed for our breakfast. A very nice bathroom with bath and freestanding shower. May I also add that the bed was very comfortable which is most unusual. I would book here again without hesitation. We... More

Great location and comfortable apartment. Friendly staff. The apartment (205) was good. One of the leather sofa was quite worn out but did not spend much time in the apartment anyways ! Great cafes in the area.

The bedroom had a nice size and the mattress was OK with adequate storage room, sofa and an ample bed. The furniture looked a bit worn but the room was kept very clean.The kitchen was well stocked, in fact... More

Harrington Gardens provides a great base for Central London, being a couple of minutes walk away from Gloucester Road tube station.Our one bedroom apartment was clean and comfortable and had basic crockery and cutlery necessary for a short stay. There are a variety of restaurants and cafes around the area and Kensington High Street is a short walk or tube... More

For a family a 3 (including a 4 year-old), a 2 bedroom apartment had everything we needed at a convenient location. We stayed for 11 nights in September 2014 and this really was a home away from home. We were on the 5th floor (Room 505) and had a lovely view out over the beautiful old buildings and roof tops...

The Harrington Hotel is perfect for a medium stay in London. It is more affordable than a hotel however offers the same levels of comfort and cleanliness, not to mention a much larger room than your typical central London hotel. Conveniently located just a 30 second walk from Gloucester Road tube station, it truly is in a practical location. Downside... More

It's about a 2 minute walk from Gloucester Road tube station, so great location. The room is very large compared to anything else you can get in this price range in this area. You get a large bedroom, with a 3-seater coach, cupboard, dresser and table, as well as a double bed (the mattress needs changing). The room is so... More

This was a little hidden gem in my books. The location was awesome. It was so close to a couple of pubs and shops. The tube was just a step outside the door. It doesn't get much better than that. I have to say I've now been in the smallest lift in the world. ;-) But please don't see that... More

Apartment sizes and location within the city was good. We had problems with the booking of the extra bed and specially with the servicing of the rooms. One day we found the extra bed with the blanket on the inside (sheets outside) and other our sleeping clothes and toys of our kid on the floor. The remote control for the... More
