The location of this place is great. It is a short walk to the Gloucester Tube Station and to Kensington Park. It is very easy to get to the major attractions from here by the Tube. There are several grocery stores nearby with the biggest one being right next to the Tube Sation--Waitrose. It is a very safe area of London. Having a small kitchenette was nice so we could do meals in if we wanted--especially breakfast. The staff was also very friendly and helpful. We didn't have AC but the staff brought us a fan. Also, there is a small laundry in the basement which is a little pricey--9 pounds for a small load to wash and dry and you buy the tokens from the front desk. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 503 which is a one bedroom without a sofa. It was big enough for two people.

The Citadines South Kensington is situated in Gloucester Rd a five minute walk to the tube station on the Picadilly line.It is a great location ten minutes walk to the Natural History Museum and the Victoria and Albert museum as well as numerous restaurants.
The staff were courteous and helpful and our Room was small but well appointed and very clean and comfortable with microwave,a small fridge and a hot plate crockery and cutlery.
Overall a pleasant and convenient place to stay in London.

We stayed for 12 nights in a one-bedroom apartment. It was tiny, a big chunk of the space was taken by the corridor for some reason. When the sofa bed was unfolded, it was impossible to walk in the living-room. Also, I never understood what the rationale was for the cleaning, when it was done, what was included, etc. We stayed there with two young kids which was painful as the 45 square meters were layed out in a way that meant the usable space was scarce. Location is good though.

Could not fault Citadines at South Kensington. Staff were great, the room, which we were upgraded to a duplex was brilliant, and the value for money was absolutely superb. I will definitely be returning here. It's only a 5 min walk from Gloucester Road tube and there is a very hand row of shops opposite.

Excellent find.

Very good.

I book this hotel many times for work.
In general, good and comfortable. Close to the station of Gloucester Road Tube Station. Comfortable rooms and excellent cleaning.
For this reason we always return

My partner and I stayed for one night in May. We were granted our request for a quieter room away from the main road (after reading reviews abou the noise levels in rooms overlooking Gloucester Road). The room itself was a standard double complete with en suite bathroom filled with a good sized tub and powerful shower, a kitchenette with basic amenities such as a kettle, toaster, microwave, stove and fridge. The sleeping area had a fairly comfortable double bed, a nice although very small and drafty window (not soundproof), small TV, table, chair and good sized cupboards. The room was clean and kitchen and bathroom were stocked with basic necessities. However, I was woken by noise, not only from the street, but also from outside our room as well as footsteps from above and adjacent rooms. On the whole, a pleasant stay but would prefer carpeted room for cosiness and better insulated window for warmth and soundproofing.

Sophisiticated reception decor and immaculately clean rooms, great area for the tube and restaurants nearby. Reception staff however need a refresher on customer service - they were without exception, unbearably rude, everything was too much trouble, they could hardly be bothered to check us in. Room not ready at 3pm despite a 2pm arrival being previously confirmed, sofa bed not made up despite the room again being confirmed as suitable for 3. Staff would put me off from staying again.
