“Cramped”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2010

Room was very small, in basement, next to laundry room with plenty of added noise from rooms of above. No natural light, dirty cuttlery, very small and altoghther not a relaxing place to stay. The footprint of the room is not big enough to try fashion an appartment so you end up trying to cook 1 metre from your bed on one side and 1 metre from your bathroom door on the other. Judging by the other reviews there are better rooms or people are easily pleased but staying in London weekly for the last 8 years I can safely say there is much better available for the price.

Stayed in the 3 bed apartment - something a bit differnt from the usual bland generic hotel chain and in my opinion - much better.
Next time in London we will stay here and get the penthouse!!!!
Night staff member was really helpful - organised a taxi in the morning for our group and had the bill ready to go as well - so no waiting about - perfect!

Rooms cleaned daily including fresh linen. All rooms were warm, comfortable with a roomy living area suitable for 4 adults (parents and grown up kids) to have an enjoyable and relaxed stay. Staff were always responsive, polite (very friendly) with ample knowledge and advice about getting around London and the UK in general. Walking distance to two railway stations, amazing Museums, minutes from supermarkets (we did a lot of our own meals in our kitchen at the apartments), plus restaurants, cinemas etc all close by. South Kensington itself is a beautiful area to walk around, in all weather. We can't wait to go back to Collingham Apartments. Kev, Sue, Aden and Perrin.

I stayed here with a friend for a theatre night in London, and only booked due to being late booking a hotel. As it was the same price as a decent hotel room i figured i would give it a shot and was so impressed with both the apartment and the general feel of the hotel.

It's almost a shame we were only there for one night, i think anyone who is looking to spend a few days in London should def give this place a shot! The space in our one bedroom apartment compared to what you'd get in a london hotel room is brilliant and the kitchen is an added bonus!

Lovely apartments and area (short walk from the station!) :)

This hotel is centrally located just a short walk from the tube, although be sure you make a note of the addressbecause there is no large signs - but this adds to the charm. The staff were helpful yet unintrusive and our room was upgraded free of charge to include a small bedroom instead of using the sofa bed. There was a small outside are but as we were in a basement apartment this was not hugely appealing and the apartment lacked a view or good natural light.

The overall effect of the apartment was very good, while the fittings were not expensive they were well considered, clean and attractive. The communal areas were a little run down which was misleading as the apartment was very well maintained. We had a lovely time and this provided a spacious and comfortable base.

We only stayed at The Collingham for one night but arrived very early on the Saturday morning to drop off our bags. We were instantly upgraded and shown to our room as it was ready for us. The apartment was really lovely, spacious and clean with a sunny balcony overlooking the gardens. The beds were comfortable and the sitting room had plenty of space for us and our three children.
The location was great being just around the corner from the museums and Gloucester Road Tube station but quiet enough that we slept wonderfully well. It was a really perfect base for exploring areas of London we were not familiar with and we will definitely return. Thank you
