Citadines South Kensington was perfect for us. Beautiful location surrounded by lovely architecture and gardens. Five minute walk to the tube and several grocery stores. So convenient, yet quiet. No problems with street noise while sleeping. Of all the London Citadines, I would choose this location. So pretty. The handy Underground makes it close to everything. Do walk to the...

The apartment was really nice and clean. The reception employees were very kind and helpful. The coffee/tea machine in the main entrance is a really good idea to have rest in the lounge. The localisation on Gloucester Road is perfect: safe, clean, nice and not far from Hide Park. A lot of restaurants and bar around which are really good

We would have stayed somewhere else had it been just me and my husband but we traveled with our 18-month old and needed a separate sleep area as well as a kitchen. Citadines South Kensington fit the bill. All of the kitchen appliances worked just fine. The couch was a bit of a disappointment - it's a pull out/sofa bed,...

Such a great location and neighborhood. Staff here is super friendly and helpful. Had some challenge with the Wifi which they quickly resolved for us. We stayed in the 1-bedroom suite which was very clean and had great kitchenette we found useful. Wonderful shoppes and restaurants nearby with a Starbucks on the same block.

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.
