The Citadines South Kensington is an excellent place to stay. Their location to the underground, stores and restaurants made our vacation very enjoyable. We enjoyed the apartment style accommodations . They even provide a cell phone, which you can take on outings to use. One could also make international calls free of charge! Staff was very friendly and helpful.

Booked this place last minute to attend conference in area. Great find in nice location - close to tube and a short pleasant walk to High St Kensington. Booked a 1 bed apartment which was more than enough space for 2 people. Reception staff very friendly and most helpful. First time staying but will be back.

Me and my family have had the pleasure of staying there for a few days during our holiday in London. A quiet place, located in a safe neighborhood, convenient to velecemente all major attractions the city. Perfect for those who do not feel obligated to stay in a traditional hotel. We will definitely be back during our next vacation.

This is my first stay at Citadines. The reason why I choose this apartment for its convenient location. I arrived London early in the morning after flying long haul. The staff are very helpful and kind in offering me early check-in, so that I can refresh & relax in the room. Except weak water of shower head, and the curtain...

I was pleased with the apartment. It was exactly what I needed for a group of three friends. We had a comfortable stay, cooked breakfast at the kitchenette, which had everything we needed. The beds and the sofa bed were very comfortable, the hotel and the apartment was at highest cleanliness standard. The check in process was straight forward, the...

Staying here I was really able to discover the South Kensington area. It's situated on a nice, not too busy, street with lots of shops and restaurants & a pub close by. Very close to tube station and bus lines that get you across town into the main tourist areas of Covent Garden, West End, Trafalgar, Houses of Parliament, etc....

This is the first time we've stayed in the South Kensington Citadines and as usual we enjoyed the not too overly attentive check in process. This is our fourth stay in a Citadines and we love the aparthotel concept so much that we won't stay in any other when in London. Out of the four times weve stayed there we've...

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.

“We had 2 twin beds upstairs - you could keep them together if you are a couple or move them away from each other. Downstairs there was a sofa bed - very comfortable. TV upstairs and downstairs, 1 bathroom. Kitchennet - microwave, cooker, dishwasher, all needed plates and cutlery. Good quality, nice and clean. Very pleased.”
