    The stay was very good with nice rooms and the apartment was fully furnished with all the necessary stuff.

  • Family with children

    Good location for our 2 day break to London, Nice aerea with plenty of cafe`s for a relaxed breakfast nearby before spending the day in town, and close enough to return too before going out at night. Tube station just down the road.

    I was surprised to walk out of the shower in the morning at 8 o`clock to find a window cleaner outside my window on the first floor, and the hotel had not warned me this would be happening.

    El hotel esta muy bien situado en una zona muy tranquila y muy cerca del metro gluocester. El apartamento esta enteramente reformado y no falta ningun detalle en la cocina, todo esta nuevo y hay labavajillas. Como detalle de bienvenida teniamos un enorme huevo de Pascua ya que se celebraba ese fin de semana y estaba buenisimo. Todo fue perfecto.

    Nada de negativo que decir, lo unico el precio, pero para el nivel de vida de Londres y la situacion no ha sido excesivo.

  • Family with children
    5.8

    Hotel location is excellent, the Gloucester Road tube station is within 5 minutes.

    Hotel location is nice, but expensive with no services. You could find more comfortable and cheaper apartments in the same location. Find and book good apartments earlier. Good luck!

    staff were very helpful, hotel was nice and quiete and in a good location

    bed was very ordinary with matress very "used" on one side which caused uneveniness and not really an apartment more a hotel room with a kitchennete

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    Efficient and friendly staff. Large and comfortable apartment, cleaned daily and kept in good order. Well located in South Kensington. Good accessibility on the Picadilly line tube.

  • Family with children
    5.0

    Location of the apartment was great

    Room too small than what was shown on the website, we booked a large studio but I think we were given the regular. We confirmed with the staff who told us that it was infact a large studio, but I still disagree.Daily cleaning not up to mark, we complained & next day got full service, but day after again the daily cleaning was poor. We were made to change apartments due to over booking which was just too much trouble with the baby.

  • Family with children
    5.8

    There was no daily cleaning although this was promised in your website. Cleaning consisted of changing towels and taking out the garbage.

  • Family with children
    7.8

    The pictures were exaggerated vs. The size of the actual room, but it was very new, modern and nice (albeit small). I would stay there again (but not in summer as there was no air conditioning in the hotel).

    The photos and the actual room were different. Photos made the room appear far larger than it was. Also, no air conditioning (so I would not choose this in summer) and the room's window had to be opened by staff (not convenient).

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Very convenient location, comfortable accommodation & good facilities including the kitchenette

    Room was a little small, & the big minus was the lack of a reasonable-sized table for two people to eat a meal at

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    Location - access to central London Cafes/restaurants abounded.

    No dvd player

  • Family with children
    4.6

    The location

    The apartment we booked clearly stated that we would have a separate bedroom when in fact the bedroom was a mezzanine floor completely open to the downstairs, it meant that we had to go to bed when the children did and not even watch television as we were in effect all in the same room, this was not indicated on the booking form and if it was we wouldn't have booked. The floor in the apartment was sticky. The towels were too small and the sofa bed was not comfortable.

  • Family with children
    7.8

    Great family accommodation, close to museums. Gloucester rd tube only 5min walk.
