Location was convenient so if you don't mind small, dark and cold rooms or don't need any help or information from the staff then it's fine. Most of the staff were ok if a little cold but one girl in particular was very rude and arrogant which spoilt the whole experience.

I am a little late with my review but better late than never! My husband and I stayed here in October of 2010 and it was one of the nicest all around apartment experiences we have had in many a trip to London. We rented the 1 bedroom and, at first, we weren't sure we liked the room. It was...

I stayed at 51 Kensington Court through much of October 2010, and the experience has impelled me to write my first ever review on this site.

This small apartment complex offers a welcome into London's Kensington Park and museums with a little home of your own. The decor in each apartment is charmingly different, but all have housekeeping conveniences with daily service. The former residence faces a traditional, quiet avenue of town houses, but just steps away is bustling Kensington High Street where London life is...

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.
