Less than 5 mins easy walk to Gloucester Road metro station. 24hrs supermarket -Tesco just nearby. Very safe and quiet district. I was allocated room 106 which is a corner unit which has a nice street view. Everything in the room is good except for the toilet flushing system which seemed to weak to do the job. Would definitely consider... More

Many thanks indeed for such a constructive and helpful review and I am delighted to know that this guest so enjoyed her stay. I agree the street facing apartments do have a good view, although a street facing apartment on a low floor is probably not the best option for a very light sleeper. Many thanks also for the comment... More

I stay in London most weeks due to work, usually staying in 4 or 5 star hotels, so when my usual haunts were fully booked I found myself searching for the nearest available "Luxury" accommodation.

After reading several negative reviews I was quite worried about my stay but have nothing but good things to say.

The apartments can be seen from Gloucester Rd Tube station which makes the Harrington an excellent choice when carrying heavy luggage. We stayed for two nights and found the apartments to be clean and comfortable. In the immediate vicinity there are plenty of bars and restaurants of all kinds. Our one bed apartment was roomy and quiet with a modern... More

The kitchen was clean, but the rest of Apartment 407 was depressing and worn. Outdated and bizarre 1980-type metal and leather furniture in the sitting room; a bare floor and dusty brown curtains. The walls were paper-thin and we could hear our neighbours spending a penny next door. Glass doors had been removed from the corner shower and replaced by... More

Naturally, we are very sorry to have let this reviewer feel so disappointed with her stay and the apartment.

I was delayed in London due to wind disruption to transport on 28th October, booked Harrington on the day instead of staying with friends to treat myself to a bit of space. Mistake!

Naturally, I was very sorry to read of this reviewer's disappointment with The Harrington.

Booked our stay through Central London Apartments and after viewing an impressive array of photographs - albeit understood these are just an idea of what you get - I booked.

Clearly, I deeply regret the impression this reviewer has of The Harrington. She has separately complained about her stay through Central London Apartments (as she has every right to do) and my immediate investigation showed that an error was made in that the reviewer reserved a Large Studio Apartment but was allocated a standard Studio. On recognising the error, I... More
