Excellent location, value, and cleanliness”

So convenient to Earl's Court Tube and M&S Food Hall and staff were all very pleasant. Property will need an upgrade within the next 2 years as wear and tear is obvious, and as long as this is acceptable (a few enamel chips and wonky cupboard doors is nothing), a stay in these conveniently located apartments is great value as a continental breakfast is also supplied. All corners passed the white glove test - no dust, no hairs!

Convenient Location & Friendly Staff”

If you are coming from LHR, no need to use the Heathrow Express to Paddington Station. Just take the underground station using Piccadilly Line via an Oyster Card and it will make a stop at Earl's Court Station (35-45 minutes away). From Earl's Court, it is just 10 minutes walk-away! Location is very convenient as there a lots of pubs and restaurants around Presidential Apartments' location.

Great location and having kitchenette and washing machine was super helpful. Cons : - the pillows were terrible and wafer thin. - the mattress was terrible and could feel the springs. We stayed for 6 nights and can’t say I had even one good nights sleep. Woke up feeling bruised from the springs each day - if staying here ask for a room from the ground floor up. We were placed in the lowest level basement 2 flights of steps down with no lift access. If they fix the bedding problem would definitely recommend and I would stay again.

Room was nice, tidy but dirty. Found other people’s rubbish in the wardrobe. Staff on arrival was average. Not very friendly. Very noisy, you can hear everyone moving around above you if you’re on the lower floors. No parking on site but if you’re lucky to get a space you can park from 6.30pm Saturday night until early Monday morning (residents parking otherwise) but staff don’t inform you of that or tell you where to park. We worked it out for ourselves. Location is brilliant though. 2 minute walk from Earls Court Tube Station. Would consider staying again mainly for the location.

Disappointing”

When we arrived we were put into a tiny, tiny room with a horrible bed, nothing at all like I had booked, when I questioned the hotel staff abut it, they said that they would show me a better room the following morning. We moved rooms the next day and the room was much better and much closer to the room I had booked, I had booked a king room but British bed sizes are apparently different and the bed was only a queen. There was no dishwasher, as stated, but this was no issue as we mostly ate out. The rooms are old and tired looking and in need of refurbishment, the beds were not comfortable and obviously due for replacement. The duvet was "winter weight" and not suitable for summer, we had to keep the room temperature very cold overnight to compensate. The room was very noisy and we were woken every morning by housekeeping going in and out of very noisy door with a loud bang. Staff were all wonderful and very helpful...no complaints whatsoever with them.

I had picked it up thinking it was a ball of hair, so I was sure. . I asked for my room to be changed and they did but were unable to give me an upgrade because they were”almost “ full. The location is great but the whole place needs a refurbishment. There a lot of cracked tiles, mould in the bathroom grout, and worn, warped wooden surfaces.

The room we booked was Executive suite and the photos shown in Agoda were totally different from what the actual room. Room is small and twin beds they offered us are small; maybe only fit for Asian. The description did not mention this room type may be located at B2 level which is not accessible by escalator and when we requested for room change since we will stay for 8 days, the staffs at front desk is not helpful and told us to complain with Agoda platform or their manager. No follow-up on request. Breakfast is same everyday with same bread+coffee+drinks. Small kitchen is available but no cooking utensils such as pots or pans are provided. Dish washer and washing machine are dirty. Other than a convenient location we will not recommend to friends. And there are plenty of choices at same area with similar price.

We highly recommend Presidential Apartments Kensington. It is located only few mins away from Earl's Court tube station, on a quiet street. Our room (studio) was very clean with minimalist tasteful deco. Staff were professional and friendly. We truly think that it was excellent value for money for London, where so-so hotels could cost fortune. Next time we visit London, we will try to book here again, too!
