“Quite the place for a city-break”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

If you want a hotel to spent your whole day in this is not the place. If you're planning to visit London this quiet hotel in Kensington will do the trick. It's located five minutes walk from a metro station that will take you to almost every sightseeing place in London. The borough, even if posh, is really nice and you can stroll up to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Notting Hill. The staff were really helpful.

Smaller room with some kitchenette facilities. Well located between Gloucester Rd Station and High Street Kensington station and buses.
Very close to Kensington Gardens, for walks and relaxation. Public transport will take you "anywhere"!
Advantage for LHR, as you don't have to change lines!

Traveled to London with my hubs, son (11) and daughter (8). We stayed in duplex room. Clean, spacious, and plenty of natural night. 1 block away from Gloucester Underground station.... this makes getting around very easy. Also close to good restaurants and a grocery store. Beds are comfy and quiet in the morning so kids can rest without interruption. I would stay here again. I've posted a few pics.

Room Tip: Higher floors have less street traffic noise. We stayed on 6th floor

We stayed here for two nights in March for my husband's birthday. We had a very spacious room which was nice and comfortable and not at all affected by the renovation work that was taking place while we were there.

Staff were pleasant and helpful and though we had no issues I'm sure they would have been happy to assist us.

The hotel is a short walk from Gloucester Road tube station which is brilliant, and not too far from the High Street either. We found the hot drinks machine in the foyer a very valuable asset as it gave us the boost we needed to hit the street ready for breakfast and our day's activities.

We would definitely use this hotel again on future trips.

Recommendable. It is clean with friendly and efficient staff. The location is perfect. Gloucester Road and South Kensington tube stations are close by. Nice restaurants and deli just around the corner. Each room has it's own kitchen. Kensington Gardens, close by for an early morning walk or run. Good value for money. Will be back.

The unit was typically compact for London accommodation but it was clean, the bathroom was a decent size and and the kitchenette was well appointed. There were good restaurants and pubs nearby and it was an easy walk to Gloucester Tube and to the Museums at South Kensington. The coffee machine in the lobby is a good facility. The only problem was with the laundry facilities in the basement where 1 of the 2 washing machines was broken and one dryer was not working properly. The owners need to fix this as it is a major problem for travellers. I would stay at these apartments again.

Many cafés, restaurants, pubs, grocery stores, transportation and sites to see nearby! We're a family of five and this place was perfect for us. Citadines gave us a rollaway bed... but it was £30 extra per night .... that's just the sore spot. This Appart/Hotel provides everything from shampoo to dishwashing detergent. I dont have any photos with this post because they comply with the photos on the website.

Room Tip: If you need an extra bed, make sure at time of reservation that a rollaway bed fits in the apartment...
