I stayed for 9 nights for a combined biz and holiday stay in London so the choice was really important. The building itself is somewhat tired but my one room studio with kitchenette and en suite was comfortable, partly modernised, not large but typical of London. The area was gorgeous and I would stay there again. An easy jog to...

In an excellent location close to Gloucester Rd station, bus routes, museums, restaurants, dry cleaners and supermarkets, Citadines, South Kensington was perfect for our London stay. Our apartment was quiet and clean and coffee and newspapers in the foyer were much appreciated. Staff were friendly and efficient and one problem with lack of hot water was fixed promptly by maintenance...

The Citadines South Kensington is very well situated and next to everything, public transport, food stores, restaurants, museum, Harrods, Harvey and Nicols... The building is very well maintained and apartments very clean. Some tea and some coffee are also available which is not necessarily the case in France. One very good value for money and in a very nice area.

My family and I stayed three nights in a one bedroom apartment between Christmas and new year. The staff are so welcoming, our apartment was even ready a little earlier so that was a bonus, it was immaculate, spacious and had everything you could possibly need. The coffee machine in the foyer is a welcome addition, and as a family,...

My family of 4 (hubby, 2 teen boys, and me) visited London over Christmas and wanted to stay in a place where we could spread out. We thought that the Citadines apartments would provide that but it was very small. As you come into the room, there is a long foyer hall that leads to the sitting room...this foyer is...

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.
