What can you expect of a London apartment? It's never going to be spacious- so this is as good as it gets... the location is a two minute walk from Earl's Court Station. Beds other than those in the main bedroom are sofa-beds.

I booked 4 x Presidential Apartments London suites for my wife's 30th birthday after reading their positive reviews. I received an email stating the booking was confirmed and the card I'd used had been processed. There were 15 of us travelling up together so I called a week before to ask for a room to be ready by 12:00. They...

I have just stayed here for a four night stay with my family, including two children. The location of the apartments are excellent; just around the corner from Earl's Court underground station making it so easy to get in to the centre of London and within walking distance of the V&A, Natural History Museum, and Science Museum. Perfect! They also...

We stayed in the apartments with our young family during February 2014 and had a great time. The staff were friendly and very helpful during our stay.

We stayed at the Presidential Apartments for a week on a recent trip to the UK. I would recommend these apartments to anyone wanting a bit more room than the usual hotel- the kitchen has all that is required to self cater as well as a washing machine/dryer. There are a couple of supermarkets within a 5 minute walk of...

Not sure about this one - it's a bit difficult to know what I was expecting but the name 'presidential' is most likely a stab at irony. This hotel/apartment block suffers from being in London. Like London it is, too busy, noisy and a bit shoddy around the edges. That said I would stay again. 'Better the devil you know'....

We thoroughly enjoyed out stay at the Kensington Presidential Apartments. The location is beautiful and so convenient as it is a very short walk to the station and shops. The staff are courteous and helpful. We stayed in an executive studio with the courtyard. The only slight inconvenience was having a room in the basement down several flights of stairs...

Staying in South Kensington

Neighbourhood Profile
South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
