The hotel is great, it has everything you need to be comfortable, walking distance from many locations you want to visit in London and blocks away from Gloucester Road tube station. Near the station there's a Tesco and a Waitrose supermarket and on Gloucester Road right around the corner of the hotel a couple of small supermarkets and take away...

This hotel/apartments is in a great location. It's very close to the tube, to great restaurants and to a beautiful Park. I stayed here for 3 nights with my wife and mother. The bedroom and bathroom was upstairs. Everything was clean and the staff was great. Next time I come to London I will definitely be back. Thank you so...

I've been staying at this residential hotel on Gloucester Road since 2009, and find it hard to stay anywhere else in London, even at the Citadines. The hotel offers small apartments with little kitchens, and is just a step away from Partridges upscale grocery store. It is a five minute walk to the Gloucester Road tube station and there are...

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.

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.
