It's a pretty basic apartment but have everything you needed. A bit run down and need some maintenance but generally it is clean. My bathroom seems to have renovated and the shower work well with the right pressure and temperature. A quiet neighbourhood with 5 minutes walk from Gloucester Tube station. Not a bad location. Will come back again.

The location being 5 minutes from Gloucester Road was excellent. The room was excellent as a one bedroom studio the original unit provided was very small and not really a double as the bed was as wide as the room. The internet was quite erratic. The bed waa short and as a 6 foot person hanging over the end was... More

Although a small studio, the incredibly high ceilings and enormous floor to ceiling sash windows made this room feel bigger. Small ensuite but with a big, powerful shower. Not too far from the tube. Great place to stay.

Nicely redecorated room about 5-10 minutes walk from Gloucester station, so easy tube ride from Soho, Covent garden, theatre area. Pretty basic but well suits needs for staying over after a show or a short break in the city. Perfectly adequate for a place to lay your head at the end of a long day sightseeing. Bed very short, even... More

We spend 3 nights in an Oxbridge apartment with my husband and son and it was quite pleasant - good location, nice equipment, polite staff. Wi-fi was very poor though, cable tv was disastrous no programmes for 2 days and mainly arabic when they fixed it. Bottomline - a step away from perfect for a London stay

Check in was horrendous. The man who I dealt with was incredibly aggressive. Obtaining the wifi code was a difficult fiasco with the same aggressive man. There were bugs in my room. The chairs around the table were gross and stained. I decided not to sit on them. The curtains were equally bad. The shower head was so clogged with... More

We have stayed at these apartment four times since 1994, the last time in 2015 in one of the newly renovated studio apartments, which was lovely. The only drawback was the lack of an elevator to this first floor level but the man on reception was more than happy to help carry bags. The position is great. Get the train... More

We stayed here for New Year's Eve. The management was helpful, there was some construction going on in our building, but we didn't hear any noise. The bed was comfortable, kitchen had everything you would need to cook and eat, and the decor was nice. The only problem we had was there was a washer, but no dryer; so we... More

Room was lovely, was what we were expecting, all kitted out for cooking and eating, no complaints there. However the man on reception was incredibly rude, blunt and impatient when we checked in, plus he wasn't even there even though the reception should have been open. We booked through booking.com which take your credit card details but don't actually charge... 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.
