Traveling to London

This is nice place to stay at London. Conveniently located, 7 min walk from Gloucenter underground station, several stops from city center. Supermarkets and restaurants are around and next to underground. You can easily quick cook taking advantage of the efficiency of the room. In addition, it is very quiet place with friendly staff. The rates are reasonable for city of London

citu getaway

Small studio room with kitchenette - great location, lightand airy but very cramped if you have large piece of luggage - you literally have to climb over it to get to the bathroom and the exit. Overall OK for South Kensington

Last minute bargain

For £59 in SW7 one can't really complain. The only drawback was the alarm system in the hall kicked off about midnight with a repetitive beeping from one of the panel lights which resonated through the building. I phoned the number and someone turned up within 5 minutes. It did take about 45 minutes to stop it completely so getting to sleep was disturbed at the onset for not only me but others staying there.

reasonably priced for location

Astons apartments was just what I asked for. Twin beds, shower, kitchenette. However the beds could use new mattresses. The shower unit was very small. The commode was so close to the shower, that the bathroom floor was always wet after taking a shower. the bathroom floor served as the shower basin. Conversely, the room temperature could be controlled easily. The kitchenette was easy to use and serviceable. Hairdryer, iron and TV all worked well. Above all the staff go above board to help in any way requested. Nothing was too much trouble for them. I give the staff 5 stars!

Good if you're on a budget

I've stayed in lots of budget rooms in London, and if you're traveling alone, they're always shoebox size. As shoeboxes go, this hotel provides good amenities for the low price -- a shower (though it's basically just a shower curtain separating the shower spigot from the toilet), and a "kitchenette" - half the closet space taken up with a microwave, mini-fridge, sink and range, with cups and plates provided - so you can prepare meals in your room and save on restaurants. The location is just a couple of blocks from the Gloucester Road tube, and if you're up for a robust walk, within walking distance of the Victoria & Albert Museum and Harrod's. My room was on the 4th floor, and there's no elevator, but the manager carried my bag up for me. For budget accommodations, you get good bang for your book at the Astons Apartments. And, if you're interested in theater history, the building was once the home of Sir Herbert Beerbohm Tree, the founder of the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts. I would stay there again.

Would Stay Again

I enjoyed my stay. Great location and staff. Room was clean with a nice little kitchen area but the bathroom was a bit small for my taste. I had been upgraded from a single to a double at no extra charge. Wi-Fi access was available at an additional cost and worked flawlessly for the duration of my stay. The only minor issue I had was at check out. I had an early flight & needed to turn in my key but there is no reception until 8am so I had to ring the manager on duty who informed me I could just leave the key in the room which I guess I'll know now for next time.

Aston Apts needs some updating

Studio flat was on top floor with no lift (website does not explicitly say there are no lifts) but this was 60+ steps to the top floor. When I remarked on it, I was told I had not specified a lower floor (website also did not mention how many floors there were although photo shows 4 floors. Who knew the top floor was rental space and not ''attic''? I don't mind small and the kitchenette was fine. Fridge was larger than mini-bar types, so it held a full sized bottle of wine no problem. Bathroom was missing a toilet paper holder and no soap dish in the shower. During a heavy rain storm, the ceiling leaked, though only onto the top of the closet, not anyplace else. If I'd been on a lower floor, this would have been a good place to recommend, assuming the details lacking in my room are not widespread and assuming they fix the leaky roof.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Buy an Oyster card. Saves time and money buying individual Tube tickets and never costs more per day than a travelcard. You can refill at the machines or with cash in person. If you aren't returning to London, give it to a friend for their trip!
