We stayed at 41 Draycott Place in March 2017 for one week. We absolutely loved the location - walking distance to King's Road and Sloane Square station - We had a one bedroom flat (3) on the third floor for our family of three. Beds were comfortable and we had everything we needed in the kitchen. The shower stall was a little bit on the small size though. Heated towel rack in the bathroom was a nice feature. No lift in the building so you need to drag your suitcases up the stairs. Overall a very pleasant stay and we would definitely stay at Draycott place again! Good value for money. Less

I stayed over night at the Chelsea apartments on Christmas Eve and it was fantastic. Such a lovely spot, just off the Kings Road, with all the Christmas lights and last minute shopping. The apartment was perfect - a large studio with plenty of space and a great kitchen where we were able to make a tasty brunch before heading off (small welcome pack was provided). Easy self check in/out procedure as well. Very clean and very well styled Less
