Location is a big selling point of this apartment. It's a 20-30 minute walk from some of the best shopping streets in London - High St Kensington, Knightsbridge, Sloane Square, Kings Rd etc. If culture is your preference, the South Kensington museums are just down the road, or you can walk to Kensington Palace, Hyde Park and the Royal Albert Hall.
The apartments themselves are well laid out and comfortable. The bedrooms are small, but the living/dining area is a good size, and we had wonderful views over the London skyline from a 7th floor east facing apartment.
The kitchen is reasonably well equipped (although bizarrely no cereal bowls!) and there are two good supermarkets close by (Waitrose and Sainsbury's)
There is some noise from the underground lines which run past on two sides, although I only noticed it if the windows were open.
I've marked it down only for some minor lack of attention to detail - only one tea towel and only two bathroom towels. No coat hooks and a shortage of coat hangers was a bit of a pain.
I'd definitely stay there again, it's a great area of London to explore.
