Citadines in South Kensington is great for long or short term stays. Each room has a small kitchenette with microwave & fridge and is perfect if you don't want to always eat out. However, if you do there are many types of eateries in & around the hotel. Citadines is in a great location with a choice of 2 tube... More

We stayed for a week at Citadines. The room with a studio was a good size. It came with a kitchen. The staff were very friendly and the rooms are very clean. We arrived on an early flight and they found an alternate room as our room wasn't ready. South Kensigton is a great spot. We felt very safe and... More

Enjoyed our stay at Citadines Prestige. The rooms though small were well presented and clean. The staff particularly Sarah were friendly and the service was exceptional. Would definitely recommend this place.

My husband and I arrived to stay for a week but through a very unfortunate error (on whose part we are not yet sure), the booking was not on record at Citadines and no room was available. The manager Alfredo and his assistant did everything in their power to find us accommodation (at Citadines Trafalgar Square) and dealt with our... More

Stayed 17 nights and really enjoyed. With two kids its almost the perfect location, close to bus stops/starbucks/supermarkets/hyde park/museums/underground.. The mini kitchen in the rooms made my days much more comfortable. The staff was so helpful as well. Thank you Citadines..

* Kensington is one of the best and most luxurious places I’ve stayed, I just loved the streets, the architecture and the overall environment. Just lovely. * The hotel is within walking distance to Hyde Park and lots of shops and restaurants. * The hotel apartment we stayed in had all facilities you can think of, including a fridge, microwave,...

Nice hotel , clean , large enough for families, great location. Kitchen had all amenities but no stove available. Customer service at front desk was lousy. When you asked questions about the hotel or surrounding facilities, we were told to check the internet??

Great location and good quality accoodation. Staff were helpful and the free coffee and water is a very nice touch. Only issue is accomodation is a little tired and tight for a family but that is not unusual for London.

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.
