Spacious and clean apartment in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Of all the apartments I have stayed in while in Europe, this one was the best. Conveniently located near Kensington Gardens, it was close enough to a tube stop to be easy to access, but not so close you get all the traffic and noise typical to a transportation hub. There are a lot of restaurants close by and the neighborhood is quiet and peaceful.

The apartment itself was very clean and had everything one would need for a week long stay or longer. The shower was good sized, not the typical small telephone booth type shower I have used in so many other apartments in Europe.

Check in and check out were prompt and efficient.

I will definitely stay here again if my travels take me to London again!

Excellent Kensington apartment

  • 5 of 5

From the start, finding and booking this apartment was easy, communication was great and we found everything exactly as described. We were met as agreed on arrival and shown around and left with Keys. The Apartment has 2 double sofa beds (Not very comfy for adults but OK if you lay a duvet down first, what sofa beds are comfy!!) in the lounge and a double bedroom (Very comfy bed) so capable of sleeping 6 people comfortably.

The separate kitchen is very well stocked with everything you would need to make meals etc, Coffee machine and microwave plus electric hob and grill.

The Bathroom has a large bath and good Shower (Although not really powerful)

The apartment has great central heating and hot water on demand, we found the apartment very hot most of the time but a few opened windows solved this, the windows are wooden sash and secondary glazing, sound proofing is adequate from the London noise with the secondary glazing shut.

We would use this apartment again with no hesitation, thank you City Apartments

Enjoyed our stay

  • 4 of 5

We loved the flat's general location - convenient to stores, notable sites like Kensington Palace, and bus/rail lines. We happened to be there during very hot and humid days, so that was a bit uncomfortable, but the managers responded quickly and provided us with lovely fans. Furnishings are nice and we slept our family of six (including two under six) just fine.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our week in this apartment. It's in a great location between Notting Hill Gate and High Street Kensington tube stations, lots of great restaurants and pubs nearby, plus Starbucks and Whole Foods.

The apartment had lots of room, well outfitted kitchen and spacious bath. We would definitely recommend this to friends and family.

Great time

  • 5 of 5

A perfect weekend away with friends. Apartment wasn't the one I originally enquired about but was offered as an alternative. I couldn't have been more pleased as it turns out. Very spacious and elegant. Loved shopping on nearby Kensington High Street. Weather was good so had a picnic in Hyde park. Would recommend this apartment to others and friends of mine are looking to stay in 2015.
