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.

So I was considering whether to give 3 or 4 for this place, but went for three on three points. 1. The communal areas need an uplift ....especially the carpet. 2. Food smells can waft through the block 3. Bed was a bit soft (not a huge issue) I think with a little more love this

The exterior of the building looks decent, as you enter the building, you are "greeted" by baby strollers & a copy machine. Thank GOD I only had 1 night stay, as I got off the elevator, there were roll away beds all around. The furnitures of the apartment don't go together,

Dear Jeannoah, Thank you for sharing your experience with us. We are sorry to read that we did not meet your expectations. As you may have noticed, our reception lobby is not large like a regular hotel and the baby stroller you have seen, might have belonged to a departing guest and the photocopy machine stored securely inside the cupboard is for guest use for printouts etc. Your feedback in regards to the apartment is important to us as it will certainly help us in improving our overall service and has been discussed with the management and is part of the soft refurbishment plan which has already began. We aim to provide our guests a pleasant and comfortable stay with best value for money. Your preference for a quiet apartment has been noted in your profile. On the positive, I am glad you enjoyed our location and our friendly professional team is always available to help our guests with their requirements. Kind regards, Savio

Dear Moniquersvp, Thank you very much for your message. Our residence is located about 100m from Gloucester Road Station. You can take direct Piccadilly Line from Heathrow Airport to Gloucester Road Station. It takes about 45min. V&A museum is 10min walking distance from our property. Our checkout time is 11am and your daughter is more than welcome to leave luggage after that time. Please private message me with your daughter's name and I will make sure that no basement apartment is allocated for her. Do let me know if you have any other questions. Best wishes, Simon Sabonaitis General Manager

The master bedroom with the ensuite bathroom in our two bedroom unit was made up of two king singles zipped together. The lounge did not have a sofa bed. Hope this helps.
