I am glad that you had such a pleasant and comfortable stay with us. We are often told that we are one of London Hidden Gem's! It does work very well for our Corporate Clients to have room to relax and entertain in a spacious Apartment. As we offer 6 days Maid Service and 24 hour Reception and WiFi we feel we offer good value too. Most of our guests return time after time and view The Collingham as their 'London Residence'.

We arrived at the Collingham Serviced Apartments in Kensington via the Tube from Heathrow, disembarked at Earls Court Station because of its lift and wended a tired way through the leafy Kensington streets. The Collingham Serviced Apartments were situated fairly centrally in Kensington, but just out of the way enough to seem a haven, especially because upon arrival we were upgraded from the studio apartment we had booked to a one-bedroom apartment with a separate bathroom, kitchen (with oven, microwave and washing machine—no dishwasher), small lounge room and a separate bedroom (the double bed was reasonably comfortable but not perfect). Everything in the apartment worked and it was like a home away from home and—apart from a few creaks from footsteps above our head—was quiet. Outside our window were the soft green leaves of superb mature plane trees, and across the road was one of those beautiful walled gardens shared by a number of houses. The staff were friendly and helpful (and courteous), the place was clean and the water pressure in the shower good (and the water hot). There was even a drying rack for our washing. We walked to South Kensington for breakfast or for dinner in its excellent restaurants—or just for fun—and bought food and wine from one of a variety of nearby supermarkets when we felt like cooking instead. All in all, it was great stay in a wonderful location and we highly recommend it.

We chose this hotel as we thought it would be a little more spacious than a conventional hotel room. Not only was it more than we expected in that sense, but it had plenty of other benefits - very clean, pretty well maintained and with a complete kitchen (including a clothes washer!) lots of TV channels, a DVD player (and they rent DVDs), good WIFI (for which they waived the fee) and even magazines to read! The location is within 5 minutes walk of Earls Court tube station (and a really good Fullers pub which even serves English Breakfast) and the location is a leafy street, pretty quiet by London standards. The bed was comfortable as well.
The only negative was that the room was very warm, which would not be a worry in Winter, but could be a Summer worry. The presence of several fans showed that they had tried to deal with this.

Room Tip: We suspect that lower floor rooms so not have the same problem with heat, but cannot confirm this.

We loved this place. Had everything we needed. We travelled with our 2 sons so had a 2 bedroom apartment. Really well appointed. 2 showers 1 toilet separate dining kitchen & lounge area. Good size fluffy towels. The bed was a bit lumpy so think it about time they replaced it in master bedroom
An easy ten minute stroll to local supermarket & restaurants. The underground also by all these facilities. We also walked to The Natural History Museum which is a must see. So close. The staff at Collingham Apartments were very helpful and nothing was a problem. Would recommend this apartment.

My parents are visiting from Australia & we stayed last weekend in the 2Bedroom 2Bathroom Apartment located on the ground floor. Everything was fantastic. They were kind enough to let me parents into the apartment VERY VERY EARLY after a 24hr flight. The reception/cleaning staff are FANTASTIC & work very hard to make this place very beautiful. Its the best serviced apartments we're stayed at. We're back next week & we'll all looking forward to it.

We were looking for something convenient to London, outside of the congestion zone, and with a bit more charm than a large hotel. We found all of this in a nice flat, 1/2-way between Gloucester Rd and Earls Court tube stations. The two-bedroom flat was larger than anticipated, with a comfortable sitting room, dining area and a compact modern kitchen. There was no dishwasher but there was a washer-dryer, much more important for longer stays. The flat we were in - #112 - has a rooftop patio, a very nice touch. The rate was very good, the 24-hour front desk staff were friendly. All in all a very successful stay.

Room Tip: Being an older building, sound isolation from the upper floor was not so good. If there's a way...

We stayed for 4 days at the end of August 2012. Me and me wife stayed in a one bed apartment and our niece stayed in a studio apt.

Our one bed apt had everything we needed. A great little kitchen a comfortable lounge and a nice bedroom. My niece had a pleasant courtyard attached to her room.

Conveniently close to Earls Court tube station and adjacent shops and pubs.

Internet access was provided free. There were more TV stations than anyone would ever need.

The wine and chocolates in both rooms was a nice touch.
Very reasonably priced. After staying here, we would never stay elsewhere in London

Room Tip: Try for rooms on upper floors.
