“Thirty years at CSA”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

We first stayed at Collingham Serviced Apartments around 1981 and have hardly ever stayed anywhere else in fairly frequent visits to London. In other words ,we would guess we have stayed there upwards of 60 times, most recently in February 2013 .The accommodations are great, the location is unbeatable , and most importantly, everyone there is unfailingly helpful, courteous and kind.

Room Tip: higher floors are a bit warm in the summer

This is a perfect place to stay if you want to see how is to live in London with your family. The apartment were we stayed was large and clean, the furniture is nice and the kitchen has all the necessary appliances. The location is close to Royal Albert Hall and Stamford Bridge and has a very easy access to the city center by subway. The staff is friendly and there are several small gesture that counts - every morning the newspaper is delivered at your door and a lots of new fashion magazines are available at the reception.

Room Tip: We stayed in an apartment with a small terrace but situated at basement - we didn't mind, but if...

Booked a studio here for 16th March. When we arrived in London, we called in to leave our bag as we were early. Not only was our room ready and we were able to check in, but we were also upgraded to a one bedroomed apartment at no extra cost. Spotlessly clean and very helpful staff from Reception to the Cleaning lady who ran up to the second floor to bring the lift back down for us as it had got stuck. Great location - literally 5 minutes walk to Gloucester Road Tube Station - away from the hustle of the city, but within easy reach for theatre visits and the other London attractions. Fab!

We ordered a studio apartment online. When we arrived, they had upgraded us to a one bedroom unit and a bottle of wine and chocolates were waiting on the table. The room we had was a garden apartment at the front of the property. The only downside was there was no view out the front window but it was winter so it didn't matter. The living room was HUGE and well appointed. The kitchen was perfect! It had everything you would need from pots/pans, to dishes to soap and towels and even vases for flowers. It was much more than I expected! The location is a short 2-3 block walk to the Gloucester Road tube station. The nearest large grocery store is Sainsbury a block past the tube station. Lots of Restaurants nearby and the street the Apartment is located on is a cute, quiet residential street.

The management were very attentive to the needs of the residents and asked every morning if you needed anything... I was surprised to have maid service and fresh towels everyday in an apartment. A definite plus.

Great apartment to hang your hat for a week in London!

We stayed in a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom apartment in Dec 2012. It was really great. Not too tight. Enough room for the 5 of us. One of us slept on the sofa bed in the living room. Everything was provided for. Washing machine was very useful. I requested for an apartment that had one in it. Cleaning is done everyday except Sundays. Train station was just 5 mins walk away. You can take the train from the airport direct to the train station and walk 5 mins to the apartments. And to get to everywhere else in London was very convenient via train.The 24 hour concierge was very helpful too - they helped us book tickets to the various tourist attractions.

The location of Collingham Serviced Apartments was perfect for us since we landed at Luton Airport and traveld to London by bus from Luton Airport to Earl's Court with EasyBus. We walked for 10 minutes from the bus station to the apartments.
It's pretty close to the Gloucester Road tube station so after at most 5 minutes of walking we had acces to the underground transport of London.
We had a two bedroom apartment for four people, the bedrooms are large and the living had enough space for us to gather in the evenings. The rooms are nicely decorated and the kitchen is fully catered so we even had the chance to cook our meals in the apartment.
The hotel staff was really friendly and we didn't miss the chance to get advantage of the free candies at the desk. In the day of departure after we checked out of the hotel the personal allowed us to leave our bags in but there is no bag room so we had to left them in the hotel lobby.
The receptionist labeled each bag with a tag with our name on it.
As a down side I would say that the floor was noisy so when the tourists that were above our apartment were walking around the room at nights made a lot of noise that disturbed my sleep.
