, September 2015: Facilities were basic but appropriate especially for the price and taking into account the expectations when occupying student accommodation. The location was quiet, pleasant and convenient. This offered a wonderful experience. I would come back to this particular venue again and again. 4/5

, September 2015: The room was very clean and spacious. The bed was nice too. Moreover it's a beautiful ward and quiet. The underground is not to far, around 10 or 15min to walk. 5/5

, September 2015: Over all good 4/5

, September 2015: Cutlery and crockery would be a useful addition. Overall great service, staff helpful, great location and fantastic value thank you 5/5

, August 2015: Great value for money. 5/5

, August 2015: 3/5

, August 2015: Everything worked and I had a lovely quiet view of the square from my window. I'd stay again if that room were available! Not sure how good it would be if the building was full, but it was fairly empty so I found it a very enjoyable stay. 4/5

, August 2015: Staff are lovely and helpful. However, the rooms facing the street are too noisy and should have double glazing. I got no sleep due to the sound of traffic and airplanes non -stop. Even at 2am I got no peace and by 5.30am regular traffic was starting up. How do students live here! Even when changed to rear room sound of airplanes non -stop kept me awake. Not a good three nights! Yes it is London and so there must be actions taken to ensure the London noise does not prevent people from getting a good night's sleep. SOLUTION - Double glazing! 3/5

, July 2015: At first requested lower floor room but got higher, after a bit of polite requesting was really helped by a young lady who went out of her way to help us find a better room (mature couple). Great location and good college kids who help run it. Have stayed here twice now. 4/5

, July 2015: Affordable accommodation in a very convenient location. Kitchen facilities are good, tea and coffee provided and rooms are tidy. Very neat. 4/5

, July 2015: It was a good walk from Gloucester Road tube station. Within reach was Fulham Road. It was good. 4/5

, July 2015: excelent situation,cleaner,good bed, 5/5

, July 2015: Was glad to have room on groundfloor. No ac so was a bit warm/stuffy (but bearable). water bottles can be filled with iced water at the back of reception. No wifi in room only in "common areas". Very clean. Good location especially for the museums. Safe. Lack of cutlery and plates so would suggest you bring your own/plastic ones. 4/5

, October 2014: The location of Evelyn Gardens is fantastic. 4/5

, September 2014: The position is excellent and the rooms are big and comfortable,. 5/5

, September 2014: Great location. Spacious room with lovely outlook. Second stay and have found all staff to be friendly and obliging. This is student accommodation so the rooms are basic but very comfortable and with plenty of room. Shower and toilets are kept very clean. A shortwalk or bus ride to Kensington South tube station and close to the V&A, NNatural History Museum and Albert Hall. I walked into Picadilly Circus a few times and it took about 1 hour 15 minutes. Two supermarkets are very close by. Lovely big kitchen but unfotunately not equipped with pots pans, crockery or utensils. You need to bring plastic plates atc. Would definitely recommend it and would stay again. 5/5

, September 2014: Does what it says on the tin. 4/5

, September 2014: Very good experience. All the staff working there are so friendly and handful. The location of the place is excellent. I would only recommend to put wifi connection on the rooms because we could only use it on the common room and since we paid 5£ for it is reasonable to want it on the room. 5/5

, September 2014: I'll come here again. 4/5

, August 2014: The room is in Chelsea close to shops, cinema, buses. South Ken is walk away. Well managed tidy, shared amenities in student Halls. 5/5

Mrs kristin V, July 2014: top experience for money spent, good beds, everything needed available, top location!!! 5/5

Mr Alessandro M, July 2014: Overall good experience, would highly recommend. But, for relatively long stays (mor than 15 days), some shared cutlery and crockery would have been very helpful. 4/5

Mr John C, July 2014: I enjoyed my stay at Evelyn Gardens. I booked a single room, It is in a fantastic location, within walking distance to chelsea embankment, battersea bridge, kings road and fulham road, plenty of bars, pubs, shops nearby. Quiet area, sainsburys and m&s on the fulham road within 5 minutes walk to buy your milk, coffee etc, Towels supplied, shared toilet and shower facilities, shared kitchen, staff were great, excellent value for money for a single room in this location. I would recommend Evelyn Gardens and I will go back. 5/5

Dr JU Z, July 2014: It is a good value of money, particularly in London such a expensive place. Large and spacial kitchen. Instant coffee/tea bags are provided and replaced in time. No wifi in the rooms. The only shortcoming maybe the shower facility... the shower head can hardly adjust the direction in that tiny space. Water hits the wall instead of on your body... The staffs during the summer period, I think are student, they are all really nice and friendly. 4/5

Miss Stephanie B, July 2014: As it is shared bathroom facility I would have likes to pay less. But excellent service was given by staff members, particularly the cleaning lady who had a very pleasant attitude 4/5

Mr Klaus R, July 2014: Great neighbourhood, friendliness and tidyness. Coffe, tea and milk provided in communal kitchen for free, cleaning cloth, dishwasher (detergent) and more kitchen utensils would be appreciated;) 4/5

Mr Donal M, September 2013: I really enjoyed my stay at Evelyn Gardens; the staff are lovely, friendly and welcoming. What a fantastic location too, the whole of Central London easily accessible via Gloucester Road or South Kensington tube stations. I found a great little cafe nearby for coffee and criossants in the morning; there are many to choose from! Although it is some years since my student days I will definitely be back to stay and enjoy the 'student ambience' of Evelyn Gardens... 5/5

Dr Torsten F, September 2013: thank you for the nice place to stay in convenient environment 4/5

Mr Warwick H, September 2013: Quiet location in excellent neighbourhood. Shared facilities were never all in use. Close to several bus routes; under 10 minute walk to nearest tube station (Gloucester Rd). Great value for money. 4/5

Ms Lesley D, September 2013: Great location, very good room, basic but clean, spacious and airy. Very close to local supermarkets so easy to prepare a decent inexpensive meal but remember, there is no equipment so bring a plate and pan and what ever else you need if you plan to self cater. 5/5

Miss Desiree S, August 2013: It's in a great location walking distance to lots. The price was so reasonable I would recommend this to anyone. 5/5

Mrs Bonni S, August 2013: Very impressed with this service....makes complete sense that the space is used well, and yes, it was a 'hark back to student days' with it's frugality and simplicity of accomodation, but for the times when I come to London for things other than the accomodation, it is perfect. It makes a spontaneous little London stay very accessible over the summer. 4/5

Miss Silvia V, August 2013: Very good place to stay in London. The location is good and the rooms are excelent. The kitchen is a very positive point and the showers/bathrooms are very clean. I would definetly recomend it 4/5

Dr Juanjuan H, August 2013: It's been a very pleasant stay in Evelyn gardens. The ambiance is nice and quiet, and the location is great and very convenient to reach any place. 5/5

Mr Tam M, August 2013: An excellent basic value for money spacious room right in the heart of Kensington. It is a no brainer, I will be back. 4/5

Ms Dorothea B, August 2013: The reception staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The room was very nice, comfortable and quiet. I used to stay in Uni halls myself when I was a student so knew what to expect in terms of facilities and I was very happy with the cleanliness and overall appearance. I would be very happy to stay here again if required. 4/5

Mr Aditya D, August 2013: Very much enjoyed the stay. In a great location, though slightly quiet and residential, which may be a plus for many. 5/5

Ms Barbara Merle S, October 2012: Helpful and pleasant front desk staff. Good locality. Fairly basic student digs. Shower room very small, no pegs for clothing etc. However, value for cost all together very good. 4/5

Mr Leo Yannick W, August 2012: Friendly and helpful staff, well located appr. a 15 min. walk from Battery Park and 20 min. walk from Hyde Park, 10 min. to Gloucester Road tube (with 3 lines running there). Room not much equipped but clean and within a 4 nights stay even fresh bed and towels. Two hire bike stations right around the corner. Floors dark (but lights switch on when there is movement) and VERY hot (no air conditioner), stairs are narrow so take care when being impaired that no more than ground or first floor. Shared toilets and showers clean and discrete enough. Kitchens with TV and very (!) cold fridge so better cool your stuff in water or under your bed. Beds small but very well sleeping in there. Overall pretty good experience. 4/5

Mr Sai T, August 2012: Overall I am very satisfied with the facility and location. 4/5

Miss Nicoletta C, July 2012: To much children going around during the first days. They were really annoying and impolite. As for the rest of my staying I found the room nice and clean. Bathroom quite clean. I suggest to divide areas for adults and areas for kids. 3/5

Ms Hannah H, July 2012: The staff was extremely helpful. The rooms and bathrooms were very clean and comfortable. 5/5

Mrs Edyta L, July 2012: This is cheap and of good quality accomodation you can find in central London with only 5 minutes walk to the nearest tube station and short walk to all London's attractions. The standard is good, rooms are simple but clean and with price comparable to hostel you get the privacy of your own room. This is bargain and highly recommend it. 4/5
