General comments:

I am slow to share the secret of this hidden jem in London for fear that once the secret is out I won't be able to get a room on my next trip! Since I was lucky enough to get a recommendation for this place it's the only place I would consider staying in for either business or leisure trips to London. It's location is excellent right in the heart of Kensington.(...) The accommodation is well priced so you feel you get good value for money. Apartments are of a high standard. The one bedroom apartments are not that big but still much more spacious than many more expensive London hotel bedrooms. The two bedroom apartments are faultless. The reception staff are friendly and very professional.

Ideally located in a quiet, beautiful typical London street, close to a lively shopping area (shopping, restaurants, Marks & Spencer ...), with a station very close metro to spread very easily in London. Our apartment (8) was charming, comfortable, very clean and spacious, perfect for two adults and two teenagers: two bedrooms, a lounge, a fully equipped kitchen. Very friendly welcome. We would definitely return.

We have stayed at this hotel through the years always with nice memories. The staff is always very helpful and pleasant, and planning to stay there in the future, I like the safety of the area, and close by good places to eat, convenient bus, underground services.

We stayed in apartment 11 for 3 nights. Got there and dropped our bags and went exploring kensington high street! checked in just before 2pm and the apartment was spotless. The reception staff are very helpful and the place was cleaned daily. We are a family of five so renting an apartment is better value than 2 hotel rooms and it feels like home at the end of a tiring day in town.

The room was very clean and our experience in London was enhanced by staying at 51 KC. We were very well looked after and we'll definitely stay here as our preferred home away from home when we next visit London.

I had to spend 2 weeks in London mainly for business and I didn’t want to stay in another plastic hotel room that looks the same the world over. I wanted something roomy, with some historical presence, where I could cook some of my own meals if I wanted to and where I could get 4 or 5 star hotel type service.
I found 51 Kensington Court on the internet and am so glad that I did. The rooms are just wonderful.

This small apartment complex offers a welcome into London's Kensington Park and museums with a little home of your own. The decor in each apartment is charmingly different, but all have housekeeping conveniences with daily service. The former residence faces a traditional, quiet avenue of town houses, but just steps away is bustling Kensington High Street where London life is full of shopping and dining opportunities as well as leisurely park walks and London's finest museums.

Thank you for helping to make our London experience wonderful. We will be back!

Location:

Was a fantastic location and this was definitely a key selling point for us as we had a short stay and it enabled us to make the most of our time in London.

We stayed at 51 Kensington Court for a week, and we definitely want to go back again. Location was great.

Rooms are very spacious and very quiet. It is like a home-away-from-home. The personnel are very friendly and helpful.

The location cannot be beat! Literally steps from restaurants and only blocks from supermarkets (Marks & Spencer & Whole Foods), the tube and Kensington Palace.
Trip advisor - November '10

Location is excellent, just off the Kensington High Street and near Whole Foods and Marks and Spencer's food halls. Tube station is an easy 5 minute walk. Close to the action but on a very quiet street. It's so easy to pick up dinner and a bottle of wine after a day out sightseeing and take it back to the modern kitchenettes provided in each suite. Lots of very nice restaurants close by. A great place to stay in London!
Trip advisor – March '10

The location of the apartments is definitely a feature and we were able to easily access various tourist destinations via the tube, bus or walking. There are a number of fantastic supermarkets nearby so it is easy to self-cater during your stay and the apartment kitchens are well equipped.

You have thought of everything even complimentary umbrellas! Many thanks. We had a fabulous time.
Mr. & Mrs. Duckett, Australia - July '11

We love staying here. Staff are all fantastic especially housekeeping, very kind and excellent.
Mr.& Mrs. Afdhal America - July '11

The staff at reception were extremely helpful and friendly, and even helped me look for a permanent place to live in London (I stayed here while relocating). While there is no 24hr reception service (reception staff are around till seven or so), this only seemed to add to the illusion that I was returning to my own (temporary) home every evening.

We really enjoyed our experience. The staff were very friendly & obliging. This type of genuine hospitality is not a common experience and as such is very valuable & highly competitive. Thanks again!
