Location is excellent for getting pretty much anywhere. There is a large supermarket and M&S 10 minutes walk away as well as a small Sainsburys for daily purchases 5 minutes walk away. All apartments have WiFi, satellite TV and all the mod cons.

Room Tip: If you dont want noise ensure you are not on ground floor as main entrance is there. Also be aware...

Getting ourselves into 111 Ladbroke Grove couldn't have been easier. We booked through Agoda & forward our proof of payment to The Apartments' rep who then immediately gave us the code to the door and code to safe where we can pick up our keys to the apartment.
We never saw their staff but it was actually much faster and more convenient than checking in through front desk.
111 Ladbroke Grove is very close to Ladbroke Grove tube station on Circle line. You may need to plan your routing well to minimise the changes when you go into town. Holland Park station is around 10 minutes walk.Tesco Metro, Starbucks and other shops are a short walk.
Our apartment was number 4 which is on the 2nd floor. It's a one bedroom apartment. The double bed is on the loft (I must warn you here that ceiling is low at 150cm so you'll have to mind your head standing up). Bedroom is equipped with iPod dock and a tiny closet which they keep a fan as it can be warm if you keep the downstairs window shut.
Downstairs are a good sized sitting room, kitchen and bathroom. The couch can be pulled out as bed. LCD TV has more channels than I care to count. There's a stereo set, a dinner/work table and free wifi that works very well.
Best thing is the kitchen, fully equipped with fridge, microwave/oven, cooking utensils, diswasher and also a washer/dryer. What more can you ask for?
Checking out is as simple as leaving the keys in the apartment and close the door behind you. No fuss. We got a late checkout at noon and they allowed us to leave our baggage in the lobby until it's time to leave for airport. (You only have to remember the door code to get back into lobby to fetch the baggage.)
This place is highly recommended. Good for longer stay as well. Neighbors are quiet most of the time (some noises on Sunday but not much.)

the apartment was spacious and well appointed. We booked ground floor but got a 4th floor apartment in a building still under renovation while the builders were helpful and friendly this was below what we expected. We would however deal with this company again just be more precise regarding our expectations. A lift would have been helpful.

Room Tip: Insist on getting what you book.

Dear Merryn D,

Thank you for leaving your review on Tripadvisor. I am very glad to hear that you would consider us again for your accommodation in London. Please do contact us directly next time and we will ensure that we allocate your requested apartment. During the renovations there were some issues regarding assigning specific apartments due to work being carried out within them. Now that everything has been completed this should no longer be an issue.

Looking forward to your return to London and The Apartments.

I'm a frequent visitor to West London (1 week a month). The Apartments is a great alternative to a hotel room. You get a bed, couch, and full kitchen with washer/dryer for about the same price as a 3-4 star small hotel room. Easy access to the tube, good local eats, one block away from the famous Portobello Road. House keeping and maintenance are 3.5 out of 5. They need to fix burned out bulbs, windows and shades that don't work quite right, but overall a fantAstic value for money!

Hint: request a room in the back as the front Apts can be loud from street noise.

As the website describes this is... "An impressive 1st Floor Studio at the front of the building with an ensuite showerroom and a mezzanine sleeping area. Good light and views over Ladbroke Grove."
This is the second time that I have stayed in this Studio Apartment and I would not hesitate to stay again. I particularly like the mezanine sleeping area, which gives good separation between the living area and sleeping area. The only caution I would offer is the stairs leading to the mezzanine sleeping area are steep, so that is for the individual to consider.
The location is excellent, Ladbroke Grove Tube Station is a minutes walk away and it's only a 10 minute walk to Notting Hill Gate, Bus stops are ideally located.
The management team at theapartments.co.uk could not be more helpful, on the odd occasion that I required their assistance.

My 9 day stay at #4 41 Draycott Place was ideal. 5 minutes from Sloane Square tube station, shopping and pubs just around the corner on King's Road. The room had a new kitchenette and bathroom and it was amazingly quiet as it was at the back of the building. I'll be staying there again.

Room Tip: They have rooms off the street which are much quieter.
