Overall, a great place to stay in the South Kennisgton area. Short walk to the Earl's Court underground through a nice neighborhood, although Earl's Ct. Rd is very busy. Stayed in a one bedroom with my 12 year old son and 16 year old daughter. Boys in the bedroom and she took the sofa sleeper which worked out well. Their first trip to the UK so they were surprised how small everything seemed, like the lift, stairwell, washer & dryer combined and even the apt. size. They realized they were pretty spoiled by what they are use to in the US.
Pro's- Good location that felt safe. Close to underground, market and restaurants (we loved Nando's near the underground station). Very clean. Everything you'd normally need in the kitchen, even a washer and dryer in one. Nice flat screen TV with many channels. Complimentary bottle of wine and cookies. Friendly staff.
Con's- Beds were too hard for my taste, but I survived. Thin walls and loud neighbors is a bad combination. I had to call the front desk at 1am because of the loud arguing next door (I waited about 2 hours and they didn't quiet down). It got louder after my complaint. Then the party that began at 3am below us when they got back from the pub, complete with music and lots of "cheers"! This actually happened two nights. I guess the management can't help getting inconsiderate guests, but I wish they had done something more. I can't believe I was the only call they got.
Bottom line is I really like this place and would go back and hope the other guests were a little more considerate next time.
