Recent guest reviews

My wife and I stayed at the Coeval Harrington for five nights last week. The apartment were remarkable and the service was outstanding. Front desk staff were fantastic, The rooms were clean, updated and very comfortable in addition The residance is a short walk from south Kensington underground station which is helpful in avoiding the maddening traffic on the weekdays in London. Overall the staff, and accommodations were far superior to other luxury hotels and apartments. We would highly recommend a stay here P.S My appreciation to perfect hospitality what made me come and document my experience. Thank You Khalifa

The one bedroom apartment was spacious, light & the kitchen/ laundry was very good. It was near the tube, taxi rank , many Museums & restaurants. The staff were great & the linen & cleaners impeccable. It was a pity the shower was so terribly small. Good value .

We chose the apartments because of their location. The web site was a good indication of what we actually found upon arrival. The staff were very friendly, helpful and welcoming and this was the case for the whole week of our stay. The apartment was clean and comfortable and its location, 100 meters from the South Kensington Tube Station was perfect to get to all destinations with relative ease. There are a number of good restaurants and local shops, if you want to do your own thing, very close by. Kensington and Hyde Park are a twenty minute walk or one station away. The rest of the sights that we wanted to visit were a maximum of 30 minutes away (3 zones on the Tube). All in all a great stay and we would certainly go back again.

We (Phil & Liz - 3G) stayed in a one bed apartment on level 3 for 16 days. From the time we arrived to the time we left the stay was unbelievable. We were greeted by a woman named Zebalda. From that moment on we were treated like royalty. I dont remember lifting my bag again until the time we walked out the door. Our original plan was 10 days in South Kenso, off to Paris for 5 Days then back to Cheval at Tower Bridge. The Staff and the stay at South Kenso was the sole reason for us changing our accomodation for the last 6 days from Tower Bridge back to Kenso and the location was also a factor. They assisted us with the transfer between hotels and offered to store the bulk of our luggage during our Paris visit so we could travel lightly. Nothing was too much trouble. Great appartment, extremely clean and well stocked with everything you need. 2 minute walk to South Kenso underground station. Tesco and Waitrose markets within five minute walk, surrounded within plenty of eateries and cafes. No gym in hotel but you get free entry into a fitness centre 5 mins walk from hotel. Overall the staff were extremely pleasant, very polite and very professional. This was the best stay I have experienced in the last twenty years. Highly recommend. great staff, many thanks.

Beautiful, fully stocked, efficient, clean, studio apartment in the South Kensington district, across street frm tube station. Walk to V & A, Natural History Museum, etc. Everything you need is here. Service is impeccable. Highly recommend for any length stay in London.

Stayed at These serviced apartments. I was not impressed by the building exterior as it is located among shops. Once inside we were very happy to have stayed here. Rooms are excellent.neat clean and very spacious. The service was five star. They even offered complimentary laundry. We stayed for four days was a happy experience. The interior is five star standard.

Hi, I stayed in a one bed apartment for just over a month, I had planned to stay for 6 months but to be honest I wanted to be a bit closer to work (walking distance) and I'm a very light sleeper so I don't do well with underground noise, albeit it's not that bad , def not enough to put you off staying here. The apartments are well appointed, spacious, and have all the amenities you can think of. The rooms are cleaned daily and it is run just like a hotel. The location of this property is a key selling point, you are in the heart of South Kensington with bustling eateries all around! Squirrel next door is the perfect breakfast stop or coffee and it's literally downstairs! I really didn't want to leave, the tube is 30 secs walk as well, so it's an amazing location, just 10 mins to Harrods as well and Kensington gardens. The stand out part of my stay was the staff on the front desk,of which there are numerous as they man it 24hrs. I've never come across so many genuinely helpful, happy welcoming front desk staff before. Even when I've had guests staying they comment how amazing the front desk is. I really wanted to write this review just to acknowledge them, I don't know all the names but honestly every single one I've interacted with have been wonderful to deal with and so accommodating. I've interacted with Dominic the most and have to admit, he is such a consummate professional and a true asset to the residences, can't praise him and the team highly enough, definitely rare to find staff like this these days! Everyone seems happy to be here. A very pleased guest (Nadeem Uddin).

I have been travelling for years with my family, my husband and most recently, solo. I can honestly say that this was the best place I have ever stayed. From reading the description, I was expecting a room with a fridge and microwave. Boy, was I wrong! I was upgraded to a two bedroom apartment! It was huge - full kitchen (stove, microwave, refrigerator, dishwasher, washing machine and fully supplied with dishes, etc.). It had a beautiful living room, dining area, a master bedroom with a king sized bed and full bathroom, a 3/4 bath in the hallway and a smaller bedroom with a balcony (with two chairs and a table) overlooking Harrington Road. The master bedroom overlooks the backs other buildings so it is very quiet. The smaller bedroom overlooks Harrington Road so there is some street noise. My view from the living room included the Natural History Museum and the London Eye in the distance. There is air conditioning and a thermostat for the heat. It was very clean with daily cleaning service, free wi-fi and a cell phone with internet access to use within London. It is a two minute walk away from a Tesco Express and a four minute walk away from a Little Waitrose grocery store, both on Old Brompton Road. This was a great savings as I was able to make breakfast every day and I had several dinners. It is literally a two minute walk to the South Kensington tube station, which you can see from the hotel. There was also a bus stop right outside of the hotel, as well as a line of parked cabs (for lack of a better word) in the middle of the street. I felt quite safe in the hotel, and the neighborhood, which was very important since I was alone on this trip. The concierge manning the front door was friendly and more than helpful. The price was very reasonable for London. I have recommended it to all my friends travelling to London and I will absolutely stay there again in the future.

This apartment hotel is great for travellers visiting London. It has lots of pluses! It is located in a lovely area of London with a pleasant outlook and with lots of cafes/restaurants/shops around it. It is only a short walk to the South Kensington tube station (on District and Circle Lines) and some of the major museums. And to add to that all the staff (manned 24/7) are friendly and very helpful.

My wife and I stayed here for a few nights. The apartment is close to the Kensington station so it's easy access to the rest of London. One of the best parts is the fact that they have a washer/dryer combo, and that they give you a mobile phone during your stay so you don't burn up roaming data. It came in handy (I think that's what they called the phone, too) when sightseeing. It is expensive to stay here, but you may pay more if you stay at a normal hotel and try to get laundry service and the phone, for example. They also re-start the place with coffee, tea, and snacks while you're away. I would recommend this place for the weary traveler looking to relax in a quiet neighborhood.
