Having 2 toddlers we wanted an apartment with a kitchen and to be near hyde park. There was no lift so I got plenty of exercise going up the 2 flights of stairs which was fine for working off the beer. The only slight bummer was that there was no washing machine and the shower wasnt great but hey it... More

I am rating a specific apartment on fourth level. There was one other on that level and all levels are walk up. Buyer be ware. The major problem is that the apartment is not as advertised in the internet listing. Legally it does but the fine print is deceptive. In the fine print is says, “Please note that the photos...

The location of these apartments are wonderful. We are a family of 4 with 2 children 12,17. we had the basement apartment which had a terrible smell of rising damp and our outlook onto the inner area was just terrible. The futon bed was not sufficient for 2 people to sleep on and the only linen supplied was a sheet... More

I stayed here with two of my friends this past May. I was a little nervous at first; however, my fears quickly disappeared upon settling in. Due to issues with weather and flight cancellations, we ended up arriving in London a day and several hours later than we were originally supposed to. When we finally arrived at the hotel we...

Great location in secure and self sufficient apartment. If you are expecting any services other than an apartment and do not like walking up stairs then this is not the place for you. Right across from Kensington Palace and we even saw Will and Kate's dogs out for a walk with security. Wonderful for jogging.

These apts are centrally located. The bedroom was downstairs from the rest of the apartment which made it very nice. The toilet didn't work when we arrived but the maintenance guys went to the hardware store and fixed it straight away. There is a laundry room. Everything you need is there. I have stayed in many places like this and... More

My 3 friends and I stayed here for one night to celebrate my 21st birthday this month and was really impressed with this apartment as it was everything we needed for an overnight stay. Just a five minute walk from the High Street Kensington tube station it was a perfect location to go around London during the day and central... More

The apartments are well located adjacent to all the restaurants, pubs and shops of Kensington High St. It was great to be able self cater and there is a great supermarket (Whole Foods) approx 5 minutes walk away. The apartment itself was functional albeit a bit tired, although it didn't effect our stay. The apartments don't have a reception as... More

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.
