“Very comfortable and clean”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2014

I am from Canada but have been splending the winter in southern Spain. I came to London for a few days and had a terrific stay at 202 Apartments. The very friendly manager tells me that they are now completing an 18 month programm of refurbishment, so new kitchens and bathrooms in all their flats. I would definitely recommend this place.

We stayed one night in a flat on the 4th floor and were glad that we were given another flat (Flat 15) on the 3rd floor for the other 2 nights. Flat 15 is much much better. It is bigger, brighter and modern. (PS: the flat we stayed for that one night was old and dark and did not have hot water. So I think all the rooms have different layout in the building).

Flat 15 has 1 bedroom with a double bed and 1 living room with a sofa bed and dining table with 4 chairs. The bathroom is big with mixer taps (very important for me as I hate washing my hands under extremely hot water) and the bathtub has a glass frame just like the hotels. The kitchen is well-equipped. There's even a washing machine! Ideal for long stay. Basic stuff like hair dryer, iron and ironing board are provided. I like the fact that they have a portable heater in the flat. I've stayed in many apartments and they don't provide that. It comes in really handy on a cold winter night. A cleaner comes everyday from Mon to Fri. Some of the serviced apt I stayed in before had no cleaning service.

Location is ideal. Next to Nottinghill Gate station. It's near to Portobello market which sells nice antiques at affordable prices. There're Tesco and Marks and Spencer down the road and a few restaurants along the way. Kensington High Street is just 1 stop away and we could do our shopping in shops like Zara, Gap and H&M without having to squeeze with the crowd. On the other side is Bayswater where we found many asian restaurants that serve good food. Bus 94 to Oxford Circus stops right outside!

My family and I enjoyed our stay and would certainly recommend this apartment to everyone!

Room Tip: Flat that face the back lane is quieter. I stayed in Flat 15.

The only thing going for these apartments is the location which is excellent, right next to Notting Hill Tube Station. I can't think of a single other positive point. Very run down, bathroom tiles missing, only superficially cleaned, pulled an ENORMOUS hairball out of the bathtub, cutlery and pots and pans dirty, kitchen cupboards greasy, had to use the extra two heaters during the day because heat was off (though at night it was warm) but in order to have both on I had to take the bedroom bedside lamps out of the socket, decor circa 1970's student digs. Oh and the television wasn't working. They gave me an hour of free wi-fi which did work and it was quiet as my apartment looked out on the back. Never again, absolutely not worth the money even if it is Notting Hill. I found a gorgeous 2 bedroom flat for only slightly more nearby afterwards so there must be something better around.

My husband & I stay at the apartment on the strong recommendation of a friend. It is located just five minutes' walk away from the Noting Hill Gate underground & a 10 minutes walk to the nearby Bayswater area where we can find many Chinese restaurants.

The apartment is clean & the kitchen is fully equipped. The surrounding is very quiet & peaceful. The staff in there are so helpful & we had a very pleasant stay there. We will definitely return.

The actual apartment was really nice as well as its location. We rented it for 6 people but it really is organised only for 4. They didn't even have enough chairs in the apartment. There is no one at the answering at the reception phone on Sunday. There is no internet. We bought a wifi access code and it turned out to be only usable by one device at a time. It costs 2.5 GBP/hour or 20 GBP/week. On Monday morning they cut the hot and cold water and the cleaning lady woke us up at 9 o'clock. They only gave us a pair a set of keys. The apartment has nice electronic equipment and modern furniture.

The apartment is located just a few steps from the Notting Hill Gate underground station, which has access to 3 lines, so getting around central London is extremely convenient. The neighborhood is quiet and safe though there is not much choice of restaurants. The apartment itself, however, is quite old and lacks some important facilities such as washing machine and free WiFi access. The office is open only 9 to 5 so it would really be a nightmare if you happen to leave your room keys inside after the office hours. Also, they do not replace new towels on Saturdays and Sundays.

Eventhough it's name is 'modern apartment' the place is quite old but it is very convenient as it has everything you would want for a week stay (except washing machine). The kitchen is full equiped, there are 2 single beds in the master bedroom and the sofa bed in the living room is big enough to accomodate 2 adults. However there is no air-con, open the window in summer time is pretty noisy! What i like most is the location, very close to Notting Hill Gate tube, and the station is the junction for 3 tube lines! Moreover Kensington Garden, Queensway and Bayswater, Potobello Market are walkable. Excellent place to stay.
