Fantastic location - close to Earl's Court Tube and comfortable walking distance to South Ken, Kensington High Street and Gloucester Road. Friendly, helpful staff, very clean property, great facilities in the room. We had an issue with original room - access to bath / shower combination was difficult due to personal mobility issues - staff had no hesitation in relocating us to another room with a walk-in shower. We will return, and and would highly recommend

Good location

We were thankful that they took us in last minute after another hotel stuffed up our booking. the room was nice but in the basement and we heard every movement of the guests above us and there was no lift to the basement level either which made it hard getting our suitcases up and down. The breakfast was great and the location was perfectly central. We would stay again but request another room

Great amenities, lovely staff and close to rail.

Pros: So close to everything. Friendly and welcoming staff.
Cons: Can't find fault!
Location: Everything so close. Rail, restaurants, shopping, souvenires. Staff also very helpful in getting you to the places you want to see!
Amazing experience, Staff were brilliant, especially Michael the concierge. Close to all pubs, restaurants and the underground rail to get to usual tourist destinations. Have to give a big shout out to the Bottlery, just down the road from The Presidential Apartments. Great staff and food. So welcoming. Definitely give 5 stars to our accomodation and the Bottlery.

Nice clean apartments

Nice clean apartment close to all amenities. 5min walk to tube (Earls Court) or 25min walk to city. Really easy and convenient. Would definitely recommend a stay there.

Terrible! And extortionate.

1. They forgot to deliver our breakfast despite paying. No refund offered. 2. The sofa bed looked like it had been soiled. 3. They forgot to make the room up. 4. They refused to order black cabs and insisted on a private taxi which charged 200% more. 5. The road is very busy next to a hostel. Noisey. I cannot recommend against this hotel any stronger!

Hotel is closely located to Major transport.

Pros: Helpful staff, continental breakfast included and delivered to your apartment.
Cons: Storage for suitcases when not in use as the cupboard space was needed to hang clothes.
Location: Easy to get to from Heathrow on tube, good pubs and restaurants nearby. Underground central to sightseeing areas in London and good trains to others,
The apartment we had was comfortable and suited our requirements; it gave us more space than a hotel room.
