Stanhope

The Stanhope is a cosy studio apartment offering a comfortable setting, ideal South Kensington location and loads of London charm. Stroll along pretty streets lined with classic London row homes overlooking a garden square to the Stanhope. This studio rental is located on the lower ground floor with private access. Step inside and you will find a cleverly designed apartment with pretty décor, a separate sleeping area with queen bed equipped with a TV and armchair and a compact kitchen. The bathroom features a shower room with sink and separate half bath with toilet and sink.

Return home in the evenings after a day of sightseeing and shopping in London to the welcoming and comfy Stanhope studio. If you haven't stayed in South Kensington before, you're in for a treat!

This is a real working royal palace that was once home to Princess Diana and is now the official royal residence of her son Prince William and his wife Kate, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

You will be surrounded by great London shopping spots in all directions - High Street Kensington, Knightsbridge and the famous Harrods department store, chic designer stores on Sloane Street, antiques waiting to be discovered along Fulham Road and the best of Chelsea nearby. In the evenings, it is just a short walk to a wonderful selection of restaurants, classic London pubs and cafés. The Stanhope is conveniently located very near the Gloucester Road Tube station where you can catch trains direct to all the top spots in central London. Simply hop on to reach Notting Hill, Covent Garden, the Tower of London, Westminster, Piccadilly Circus, Soho, the West End, Buckingham Palace and so much more.
