Pleasant stay, very good location, next to cafes, underground with easy access to mayor attractions. Having a serviced apartment is very convenient to us as a family with two small children. Staff is polite

Tube station near by , good shopping and close to the Park. Rooms are in good condition . Only problem is when neighbors are cooking , strong flavor food.

I have stayed in a number of Citadines hotels in London and been very happy. I have a severely disabled daughter who is tube fed so the kitchenette really suits us. However the South Ken hotel was really disappointing again and again and again. When I made my booking, I wrote a note explaining that my daughter is a wheelchair...

I chose this place of the reviews I read when planning to stay in central London. The place was exactly as many have said. Straight forward, simple, basic, and location is what matters most. One major problem that was solved, staying in low floors will have the smell of the restaurant below all over the place. The Wifi was fast,...

The room was well appointed, coffee machine in the lobby and the staff were very friendly. The location was convenient to the Underground and numerous shops/restaurants were in the area. The location was quiet despite being on a main street.

We were pleasantly surprised when we checked in, the reception we received was friendly and efficient and our room was large, bright and airy. We had everything we needed from iron to wine glasses and corkscrew. Definitely stay again and also look at their other apart hotels in the UK and abroad.

I was travelling for business and had a studio apartment on the fourth floor, overlooking terraced houses. The room was clean and tidy, and while it's not luxurious, it's very comfortable and has everything you need for a short to medium-length stay. The rooms are serviced once a week, but this is perfectly adequate. The location was good. It was...

Staying in South Kensington

Neighbourhood 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.
