Honeymoon trip started off real, real bad here. After a long flight, there was NO baby cot in the room, unlike multiple promises and affirmations over e-mail. There would be a baby bed in the room at arrival, and our baby was dead tired, but no bed. Staff told us the beds were all in use and we would get...

Photos are deceiving to say the least! Not bothered that apartment was small but everything in it needs an update and good clean! Fold out couch was covered in stains, dust thick on curtains and pillows and duvet way past use by date. No mattress or pillow protectors so unhygienic.Fine for a place to put your head down at night...

We stayed at My Apartments High Street Kensington for 4 nights, and the overall experience was good. As we arrived at lunchtime, we did not have any major issues while checking in, and we got a first floor studio with a street view, which was great. Receptionist Emilia was very friendly and helpful. Negative issues included: staff takes mobile photos...

this is by far the worst place I have ever had the displeasure of staying in. We actually left after 2 hours as we were abused by the staff repeatedly for asking that the bathroom be recleaned as it was just disgusting - never again Do NOT ever stay here - warning.

Cons: refrigerator did not work, nor did the clothes dryer. When traveling with a small child, these were 2 main reasons why we chose to stay here. When I asked for a discount, they refused and only gave me a 15% discount for my next stay in London---which I probably won't be doing for another 20 years! Pros: clean enough,...

From the street all looks good but our apartment was such a let down. Security was an issue as one lock was broken on our apartment door. We couldn't leave our windows open as the fire escape ran straight by them and there was no mechanism to lock them into a semi open position. Fans are provided but only one...

I was worried after reading some of the reviews but we were very happy with this apartment. We were lucky enough to have a balcony with a table and chairs so we could eat breakfast with a view of Kensington Gardens. It was very close to many of the things we wanted to do and the bus into central London...

This flat is awful. It is run down and not maintained. They stated we would have daily service, one fully clean during our stay and only one change in towels (for a family if three for 10 days we had one large and one hand towel each). However in act we never received any of this. The hygiene standards are...

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.
