Excellent Kensington apartment

  • 5 of 5

From the start, finding and booking this apartment was easy, communication was great and we found everything exactly as described. We were met as agreed on arrival and shown around and left with Keys. The Apartment has 2 double sofa beds (Not very comfy for adults but OK if you lay a duvet down first, what sofa beds are comfy!!) in the lounge and a double bedroom (Very comfy bed) so capable of sleeping 6 people comfortably.

The separate kitchen is very well stocked with everything you would need to make meals etc, Coffee machine and microwave plus electric hob and grill.

The Bathroom has a large bath and good Shower (Although not really powerful)

The apartment has great central heating and hot water on demand, we found the apartment very hot most of the time but a few opened windows solved this, the windows are wooden sash and secondary glazing, sound proofing is adequate from the London noise with the secondary glazing shut.

We would use this apartment again with no hesitation, thank you City Apartments

Enjoyed our stay

  • 4 of 5

We loved the flat's general location - convenient to stores, notable sites like Kensington Palace, and bus/rail lines. We happened to be there during very hot and humid days, so that was a bit uncomfortable, but the managers responded quickly and provided us with lovely fans. Furnishings are nice and we slept our family of six (including two under six) just fine.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our week in this apartment. It's in a great location between Notting Hill Gate and High Street Kensington tube stations, lots of great restaurants and pubs nearby, plus Starbucks and Whole Foods.

The apartment had lots of room, well outfitted kitchen and spacious bath. We would definitely recommend this to friends and family.

Great time

  • 5 of 5

A perfect weekend away with friends. Apartment wasn't the one I originally enquired about but was offered as an alternative. I couldn't have been more pleased as it turns out. Very spacious and elegant. Loved shopping on nearby Kensington High Street. Weather was good so had a picnic in Hyde park. Would recommend this apartment to others and friends of mine are looking to stay in 2015.

Great location! Easy access, close to Tube, grocery store and great restaurants and shops!

  • 4 of 5

This apartment was perfect for our family of four's first visit to London. The Kensington neighborhood is quiet, but ideally located for touring the sights. It's more spacious than it looks in the photos. The Kensington High Street station is a few blocks away. There is a grocery store across the street, and various pubs, restaurants, cafes and bakeries within a couple of blocks. We really enjoyed our stay.

Solid flat for small family

  • 3 of 5

Pros: Easy to deal with

Location - In between two stations

Safety - Very close to the diplomatic areas - never felt unsafe

Cons: Smaller than it looks in photos. However the bathroom was large

Water pressure. If you have to have a great shower to start/end your

day - this is not the place for you. We had harder rains in the city.

Noise. This is not a quiet area - many cars going by including police w/ sirens (we were there for a week - it was pretty constant)

Smell - There was an odor than came and went. I believe it was from the ground floor residents

Overall it was a nice flat and there is a market close by and many places to eat. If you ONLY plan on being in the flat to sleep then it could confortably fit 4 - but if you have a family and will spend some time relaxing in the flat over a long stay, it does get a bit cramped.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your review. We do appreciate your comments and feedback and will definitely take them on board. We are sorry that the smell of the oriental cooking from the apartment below was not to your liking. In regard to the noise of the sirens, the noise level can be reduced by closing the secondary window. I do hope we are able to host you again in the future.
