Where to?

Kensington

 

This exclusive neighbourhood has everything you could need for a luxury stay in London – hidden bars, delicious restaurants, independent stores, antique markets and well-known museums that will have you brimming with interesting facts at your next dinner party. Forget the busy tourist streets of central London. Here you’ll find a more understated and elegant London.

In the summer head 10 minutes north to explore Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park where you can visit the Serpentine Gallery or grab a game of tennis. In the winter you’ll find yourself 5 minutes from London’s famous Natural History Museum ice rink with its huge Christmas tree and sparkly lights nestled amongst the building’s incredible architecture. All year round you’re a stone’s throw from utterly delicious food and drink options for a night out, or why not order in to your gorgeous Stayo home.

Places to stay in Kensington

With 13 indulgent Stayo homes to choose from at Queensberry Place, you’ll feel like a local in the heart of South Kensington.

No.2 Queensberry Place by Stayo is in an imposing six storey Victorian building which combines gorgeous period windows and a stucco facade with contemporary and stylish interiors. The apartments are airy and bright, with generously sized rooms and modern kitchens. You’ll instantly feel immersed in Kensington life as you look out over pretty 19th century townhouses and glimpse the Natural History Museum at the end of the street, one of London’s most iconic landmarks.

With double glazing and air con, No.2 Queensberry Place apartments are quiet and comfortable throughout the seasons. Combined with high speed fibre connection, an enviable location in South Kensington and those Stayo moments that really make your stay special, this is the perfect home for your next stay in London.

South Kensington is one of the most exclusive areas of central London. The grand townhouses and regal homes exude luxury and charm while creating a village-like atmosphere that makes the area feel separate from the rest of the city. While there are numerous transport links nearby, you’re unlikely to want to go anywhere and indulge in those #StayoMoments . A mix of well-known and hidden gems will keep you entertained your entire stay. Think museums, antiques markets, independent shops and cafes, sumptuous restaurants and plenty of picturesque side streets to explore on foot.

Stayo Insider Tip: The Brompton Food Market in the bustling heart of South Kensington is an independent cafe and deli which has evolved from its inception in 2014 as a grocery, fishmonger and butcher to a large cafe and deli with terrace and garden. You will indulge in delicious seasonal food, served up for brunch, lunch and even through cocktail hour. The market has been the namesake for our Brompton Studio and Brompton Suite.
