3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We were greeted by friendly staff who were helpful on all fronts. Our room was clean but in dire need of paint and repairs (a huge water stain on the ceiling, cracked and peeling paint, room smelled of smoke, etc.) The living room furniture was woefully inadequate (one very small uncomfortable loveseat for seating) and bedding was poor. (Just a... More

On checking in we were a bit surprised at having to pay upfront for our two night stay in addition to an extra £100 authorised amount, we’re use to settling up on check out, but haven’t previously had to pay upfront on check in. However we were tired and just looking forward to relaxing n our room and enjoying our... More

We stayed 21st-23rd of March and I have to say that everything was fine in relation to most factors I had considered before booking. 150 metres from Gloucester Road Tube Station, Walking distance from the Museums, A nice Waitrose next to the Tube Station and plenty of convenient pubs. The only slightly disappointing aspect was the accommodation in a small... More

Superb accommodation, ideally located. Clean, unique, great (simple) service. Self catering facilities a real bonus over standard hotel option (altho Brunch at pub round the corner was hard to resist). Will definitely stay again when in London. We stayed during New Year and it offered everything we could want from accommodation.

The apartment is in a fabulous location in South Kensington - close to the Tube, shops and restaurants. The staff were brilliant and nothing was too much trouble. The apartment was clean if a bit battered and scuffed. The only complaint we have is that the bed, pillows and couch were so uncomfortable!! After a long day of sight seeing,... More

stayed in an apartment with friends. Excellent location lots of places to eat nearby or you can cook up something yourself in the well equipped kitchen. Walked to the Albert Hall and also very close to Hyde Park and the museums. Helpful staff , very clean and would recommend to others.

We got an apartment on the 4th floor - it was well equipped (living room including dining table, couch, armchair and TV; bathroom; small kitchen; double bedroom) although I was surprised that there was no...

Staying in South Kensington

Neighborhood Profile
South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
