hard to find in London, this was great except for the bed which was a cheap coil spring mattress.
Great location, quiet, spacious, comfortable- 5 stars if it weren't for the bed! didn't try wifi as not free!More
- Free Wifi
Great location - just a 5 minute walk from the Gloucester Road tube station. The hotel staff were excellent. The front desk gentlemen were great - in particular Mark was a superstar and went above and beyond to make us comfortable and to accommodate our needs during our stay.
The kitchen and large fridge were a huge help in keeping us all fed. The massive Waitrose grocery store is just a 5 minute walk away (at the Gloucester Road tube), and there are plenty of restaurants in easy walking distance.

We hope to welcome you back to The Collingham in the future.
Booked this in lieu of a hotel on a quick visit to London last week. Easy walk from the tube, Earls Court or Gloucester Road. Very nice rooms, friendly staff. We were in Room/Unit 101 right off the lobby and front desk. Two large bedrooms, one on a lower split level, two bathrooms, one with shower/tub, one with a pretty small but serviceable shower stall. Large living room with big TV and room to loaf around on the sofa/bed and couch and chairs. Dining table with chairs for six. Immaculately clean, comfortable and well appointed.
My only complaint with the room was the fact that the lower bedroom, where I slept, was right below a set of noisy stairs and a side office or storeroom for the staff. We could hear people running up and down and talking until around 11pm and it was impossible to sleep. It did quiet down after 11, though. My parents were in the other bedroom and didn't hear a thing so it's just the lower room under the stairs. That's the reason for 4 stars vs 5. Another room on a higher floor may be the choice next time. We actually got upgraded to Room 101 from a higher unit and it was an awesome apartment
Highly recommended. Short and pleasant walk through an affluent neighborhood to Gloucester Road station and from there, on the Central and District lines, you're a hop and a skip from museums, Westminster and Tower Hill.
Dear Guests from California,
Thank you for choosing Collingham Apartments and we look forward to welcoming you some time in the future.
We traveled to London in September of 2012. We chose the Collingham Serviced Apartments since we needed a full kitchen and wanted to be near a train station. This was a small property with a great location. A residential feel, but yet only a few blocks away from the Gloucester stop where there are some shops and food places. About a mile from Kensington Palace. The front desk was very helpful and made our stay enjoyable.

This was the 4th time I have stayed at Collingham Srvcd Apts, and I am always pleased. The units themselves are 5-star, everything you need for an extended stay is provided, even the things other places miss, like paper towels in the kitchen. I usually travel solo or with my partner, but I take whatever size apartment they are offering the lowest rate on, and sometimes, due to low occupancy in a low season, that is the 2BR-2BA unit, but I have always been very satisfied with the ~45m2 1BR-1BA unit. However, this property can be quite pricey during the spring and summer. The layouts and amount and size of furnishings are perfect, with one notable exception that in ever unit, including the 2BR units, there is only 1 TV crammed into the corner of the living room, and it is hung on the wall, so is not easily moved for convenience or comfort sake.
Dear Loyal Visitors,
I am glad that you had such a pleasant and comfortable stay with us. We are often told that we are one of London Hidden Gem's! It does work very well for our Corporate Clients to have room to relax and entertain in a spacious Apartment. As we offer 6 days Maid Service and 24 hour Reception and WiFi we feel we offer good value too. Most of our guests return time after time and view The Collingham as their 'London Residence'. If you book directly with us, by email or telephone, we will be happy to offer you free wifi and best available rates.
Loved being in an apartment with full kitchen and washer/dryer. Saved money with own kitchen, laundry, and Wi-Fi. Person was at front desk 24 hrs/day so someone always there to help and answer questions. Great places to eat close by and close proximity to London tube. Felt very safe even walking late at night. Gave a home feel instead of hotel. Quiet. There was an additional charge for bedding if using the pull out sleeper coach which was a surprise but otherwise was great experience and would use them again. Apartment, including bathroom and kitchen, was very clean and cleaned daily. People all very friendly and helpful.
