Search for cheapest prices: Think Earls Court Kensington
The Earls Court area of London is renowned for its elegant Victorian town houses, which were built shortly after the Great Exhibition in nearby Hyde Park, which made the Kensington area of London the fashionable, affluent enclave of the city it still is today. Many hotels are located in these beautiful buildings, but often they don't reflect what an exciting, sophisticated, cosmopolitan capital London has become. So if you prefer the clean, directional lines of the Gherkin and Tate Modern Bankside building to the fussy classical and Byzantine styles of Buckingham and Kensington Palace, Think Earls Court Apartments will be the perfect accommodation option for you.
Think Earls Court Apartments are located in a modern complex and offer superbly appointed modern units in a very convenient location for London sights and attractions. Apartments are available with one or two bedrooms and all are decorated with chic furnishings in bold colour schemes, set off by clean white walls. Sharp modern kitchens and wet rooms, funky art prints and discrete modern comforts ensure that you will have a fantastic stay in these stylish pied a terres. All apartments come complete with a digital LCD TV, ironing facilities, a fridge freezer, dishwasher, washer/dryer, complimentary toiletries, a guest directory with local information, a direct-dial telephone and complimentary WI-Fi connection.
Guests can use hotel services via a 24-hour reception desk and there is a trendy lobby area for guests to relax in. A weekly housekeeping service also ensures that your apartments stay in top condition during your stay.
Think Apartments are situated very close to London attractions, with Earls Court and Olympia exhibition centres just 6 minutes walk away. Here you can see vast exhibitions, trade shows and concerts, including the Ideal Home Show, the London International Horse Show and the famed Crufts Dog Show; making the apartments are ideal for exhibitors and visitors alike. Ten minutes walk from the aparthotel, you will come across the exclusive shops, bars and restaurants of Kensington High Street, which has a Waitrose supermarket and a huge Whole Foods supermarket, where you can pick up groceries to cook in your kitchen. If you would prefer to sample the culinary delights of the area, you are ideally placed to do so, with the Cumberland Arms offering a hearty gastropub menu, Timo offering authentic Italian fare and Best Mangal for exotic Turkish cuisine, all located a few minutes from your door.
Kensington is also home to some more unusual attractions, including Urban Golf, an archery club, the Linley Sambourne House where you can see how the Victorians lived and Leighton House museum, which formerly belonged to pre-Raphaelite artist Lord Leighton, which has exquisite examples of his artwork and collections of Middle Eastern tiles. At the top of the high street you will find Kensington Palace and Gardens, former home of Princess Diana, and beyond you can explore the Victoria & Albert, Science and Natural History museums; Royal Albert Hall; Hyde Park; and Harrods department store for some outrageous and unique souvenirs.
