Stayed here for two days visiting London. Fantastic place, all necessary items are available. What really struck is the friendliness, warmth and engaging atmosphere of the people working here; all under the leadership of the Manager Giorgio. He himself is a fantastic character and the heart and soul of the place. Walking distance to the tube.

We booked an apartment-room at the Kensington Presidential. It was a standard suite "lower ground level" meaning basement and although there were windows and a patio area in the unit it was too small for 4 people. if you don't want a basement room you should check before booking. Fortunately they had a another room available for us. We changed...

Lower category would be One bedroom apartments which are being allocated...

I have chosen Presidential Apartments for my last 4 visits to London. Apartment is well-equipped (love the convenience of washer/dryer). Shops and restaurants are in immediate vicinity. Staff is welcoming and helpful. Earl's Court Underground station provides fast access from Heathrow and gateway to central London.

My family and I stayed here during my PhD graduation, and my parents had come from overseas so we were looking forward to staying at what looked like some quite luxurious serviced apartments. The suite was spacious and seemed well-kept. The first night, however, our stay became very unpleasant. At 3:30 am we discovered bed bugs on the sofa bed...

Stayed 4 nights with husband and 2 full-grown teenage sons. Having read many mixed reviews of this place on multiple sites before our trip, I arrived with many worries.

We have stayed in this apartment complex many times since it was opened about six or seven years ago. Firstly for the good bits, it is modern, close to the Earls Court railway station (direct access to Heathrow Airport on the Piccadilly Line), and is relatively quiet by London hotel standards. Unfortunately there are a number of negatives. The units...

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.
