Perfect for a family”
We booked this property, the two bedroom apartment on the second floor, for a few reasons. First, it could accommodate our family of 6. It had a kitchen and a washer. Second, its location to the West Kensington Tube Station and the Barons Court Tube Station. Third, it was near grocery stores, a pharmacy, and a pub. Last, the price. We paid $937 for 6 nights. Speaking to the street noise. It was loud. I would recommend earplugs if you are sensitive to that noise. The common area has a kitchen and living room space with a couch that can be made into a bed. Our 8 year old daughters slept on that. There are two bedrooms, each with a code on the doors. I understand now how the apartment could be shared by two different renters. I can see how others were put off by that not knowing going into the rental. The shower was a little weird. The high shower head did not work. There was a hand-held sprayer but it was awkward. We ended up taking quick baths.
Studio apartment was great”
Entrance to the apartment was secure, and the touch screen keypad was very fancy, and worked perfectly. The location is a very short walk from west Kensington Station, and several shops such as co-op etc. The studio apartment was clean, spacious, and had a toaster, kettle and microwave. The shower was great and in perfect working order. The thermostat didn't work but the space heater warmed the room up very quickly. The bed headboard was very squeaky, so might want to look into that if any guests are wanting to have a bit of nighttime fun. There was no noise from the rooms below, the noise from the main road on one side and train line on the other may disturb some guests, but I grew up on the a49 so no problems here! The washing machine door was out of order and there was no message/note to tell us this, but it's only a minor issue really.
We stayed here as a group of 6 for my 30th birthday and it was amazing. Fantastic location from Kensington west underground. The apartment was so so clean and tidy. Very spacious with two big double rooms and a huge living/dining area. WiFi available, facilities to cook and clean. Fresh towels on the beds. It was really quiet, private garden area and no interference from any neighbours. The cleaner came promptly at 11am the next day to make sure we checked out ok. I would highly reccomend staying here, it was so easy and stress free and a very enjoyable experience.
Nice apartment,close to West Kensington station ”
Nice apartment , nice room but only one bath ti shared. close to West Kensington station. It is nice area and close to London city.Nice apartment for couple
Comfortable & Secure”
This is good value accommodation for London. The downside it is on a busy arterial road out of London with no reception. My challenge was with the guidance & info on booking.com - I wasnt aware of/received any request for ID which was an important pre requisite for getting check in instructions. The number on the confirmation from booking.com was not a valid number and my messages to booking.com were not answered for over 24 hrs. Fortunately the staff at Kensington Apartments when I managed to contact them were super (it took an hour to find the building an a working number) So BE AWARE when you are booking that it is not enough to receive a booking confirmation! Follow up and get your check in instructions
good. near to underground ”
Clean and beautiful. Near to underground west Kensington. Tesco express is just a few metres away. Good. Worth for money.
Overall Very Pleased”
Pros: Great location - 2 minute walk to West Kensington Tube Station Lots of room - very spacious for London 2 bathrooms (Superior 2 bed) Full Kitchen Cons : Cleaning staff entered flat TWICE without knocking even though service was not requested. Beds are terrible
Careful when booking”
Before I booked my 'luxury double room' I clicked on the associated photos and it showed a kitchen, bathroom and dining area. The description stated in one part that I had a kitchenette and the photos seemed to.imply that I had the full kitchen, bathroom, dining area etc for my sole use. After booking it was apparent that I was sharing these facilities with another double room. I read through things and I recognised that this was evident before I had booked, but REALLY not clear (and I have booked a lot of places over the years). I accept that had not fully scrutinised the details before I booked. However, I feel it was really unclear, especially with the photos that were still associated with my booking that showed the full facilities seemingly for my sole use. I ended up spending 2 nights sharing an apartment with a man and felt quite vulnerable as there was no contact with staff members/other travelers. I would however stay here again and book the whole apartment as all else was gr8
A lovely apartment ”
Fist off as mentioned in other reviews this is not a one bed flat but a shared flat with private rooms. That being said, don't let it put you off the location is with in a 5 min walk of two tube stations. The flat it's self is large and well equipped with a dull kitchen. A well speced bathroom and comfortable bedrooms. It was all very clean and dealing with the team was a joy. I would thoroughly recommend this apartment if you have any sort of extended stay it's like a home away from home.
Great location but can be noisy. ”
The location was really convenient. We were given the instructions prior to arrival but could not access our room. We had to call to get a 3rd code to access a communal kitchen and kitchen. We used the oven on our 2nd night and thought it had turned off. However the next morning the oven was still heating up. We repeatedly tried all the helpline and contact numbers for the Apartment, emailed but did not receive any response. The person in 2B eventually called the Fire department who found a fault with the stove temperature control. I am yet to receive a response from the Kensington Apartment. So we are pretty disappointed with them as it could have been a dangerous situation. We are booked to spend 4 more days here later in August so I hope our experience will be more positive.
I m strongly recommend to stay here bcoz of the cleaniness, location, value for money and supportive”
My family n nieces were really impressed on the apartment spotlessly clean, comfortable, complete amenities, and perfectly situated close to the town, halal stores and restaurants, and a short walk to the bus/train station (not two minutes as per stated in the apartment explanation, not even a minutes). And affordable rental price. The info communication and responses to questions was very extremely excellent. The management, Mdm Romina, Operation Manager has taking care my small problem professionally. I definatly will stay here again and strongly recommend. Even for the last two vacation, we er staying here.
Great stay for the price you pay”
Spacious apartment with great facilities. Very close to the train station for easy transportation around London. However, obviously in need of some work to make the place really great. There was tinfoil holding together the water pipes in the bathroom and the entire place needed a revamp. If a bit of work were put into the appartment it would be an incredible place to stay. May be an issue for light sleepers as the train goes right past the building. Overall, for the price I paid for the stay, it was well worth the stay. Had a great time.
LOOK NO FURTHER!”
Lovely, freshly renovated accommodation with everything necessary for a short or medium stay. It is simple but immaculate and secure. The A4 and underground are immediately beside it, but I had no problem with either. I could easily have worked in this space. The shared area has a kitchen with all the basics, and a spacious living area with table and chairs. Great plumbing and hot water. No problem with the other guest room secured off the same space. Piccadilly & District lines (two minutes walk) give fast access to central London - fifteen minutes to Piccadilly Circus.
Absolutely enjoyed my stay here. The check in was so smooth and clear instructions were given. The place is good value for money and close to the station where you can pretty much access everywhere in London. We were accompanied by other guests from abroad who were lovely to speak to. The rooms are nice and comfortable. I would recommend staying here to anyone.
Lovely room, bathroom and kitchen, was spacious. There was no mention on the site that the bathroom ”
Lovely room and bathroom. The kitchen, was spacious and nice too. There was no mention on the site that the bathroom and kitchen was shared with one other person on the same floor (although we diddnt mind). Need to provide ID and send before 6pm is another key point. The outside of the apartment is nowhere near as glamorous as the inside, the windows need a good scrub and the exterior of the building a little refurbishment. The only con inside the kitchen was that the spark on the hob wasnt working so we had to buy some matches to light the gas. Overall a pleasant stay though and would definitely stay again.
Convenient, good place to stay comfortably ”
What i like about this apartment is convenient location nearby tube station and halal food. They also provide daily cleaning service and cooking facilities. The security of this apartment is good and the check in process was fast and easy. I love staying here and will definitely come back and stay here again.
Near to tube station but could be noisy”
Pros: 1. Very near to West Kensington Station so that's convenient 2. Self check in and keyless entry so you don't need to carry a bunch of keys around 3. Price is reasonable for location Cons: 1. Can hear trains every few minutes and could be quite loud 2. There was a table fan and 2 hair dryers but only 1 hair dryer worked 3. Customer service isn't too great 4. Rooms are small and one of the room's lock don't work at the time we're there Would say it's good for a short stay and if you're really out and about all day and just need a place to sleep at night
Amazing value for money”
We booked this apartment for one night for 4 adults and 3 children. We were very pleased with the accommodation. Very specious, clean and close to local amenities. We requested a cot at late notice and this was provided. The value for money was brilliant. Only thing I would say is don’t try to cook bacon for breakfast, unfortunately we set of the smoke detector! 🙈
Apartment description misleading”
The apartment in W Ken was well appointed, but we were lead to believe at the time of booking that we had a one bed roomed place to ourselves. However there was a second bedroom, so we shared a bathroom and living area with complete strangers for the whole stay. Also the 'Ikea' style bed was unstable and made a horrid noise constantly when in use!
Great price, great location as a base with good links into London. If you are unable to sleep where there is road noise then perhaps not a good location - but it is in the city so traffic noise should be expected. The shower might be a struggle for someone over 6’2 but manageable. The bed is firm. It was clean, warm and a good place to stay at the price. There were no staff visible when I stayed as you let yourself in and out - a phone number is provided but was not required.
