The apartments were great the kitchen feature really cut our meal costs. The location was great two train stops close by and close to a street full of restaurants of all kinds at every budget plus grocery stores and even a mall close by. We loved it!!
The hotel was clean and friendly, but the "standard studio" with two beds is not for the faint of heart for a long stay. There are no elevators so lots of steps up a narrow hallway if you are not on the ground floor. The room was big enough for the amount of time spent in it, but the only storage space is a small closet for hanging things. There are no dressers and not even a place to leave your toothbrush in the bathroom. You will be living out of your suitcase on the floor for the duration.
The kitchenette turned out to not be nearly as important as we thought it would be. The fridge and dishes were good for drinks and morning coffee, but are you really going to cook a full meal in your hotel room?
Great for a stay of only a few nights, or travellers that don't mind having their things on the floor.
The rooms are very small (normal for this price range in central London). We stayed there about 5 days and I would say we were reasonably happy and comfortable. The room furniture is as pictured, except much older and beaten up. Earplugs are a must-- the walls are paper thin and we could hear people in the hall, doors banging closed, people next door, etc.
We had a basement room which was fairly depressing.
Kitchenette has a pot, small pan, plates, cups, cutlery (no bowls), and a couple glasses.

This is a 1 star hotel by American standards. It is adequate. Don't expect it to be the Waldorf Astoria. I was travelling with a 4 year old and needed to stay within a budget. There were 3 rooms (living area/bedroom, kitchen, and bathroom). The rooms were small. There was a shower and no bathtub. The rooms could use a deep cleaning. The building itself was very old and had charm. We stayed for 3 nights and were able to able to see the sights of London while staying within our budget thanks to the low cost of the hotel and the kitchenette. The neighborhood has 2 grocery stores, restaurants, pubs, and even a dollar store within walking distance. Two tube stations are within walking distance as well. Be aware that there is no elevator. Bottom line: If you need an inexpensive place to sleep and would like to save money by cooking your own meals while being in an amazing location, this is decent option.

It was a fantastic price, the location was good with a wide range of cafes and restaurants very near by, checking in and out was quick and easy, and the room was large with a comfortable bed. The shared kitchen and bathroom were also very nice and spacious - fantastic shower.
Unfortunately housekeeping really let it down for us - the hotel claimed that housekeeping was done daily, but on our very first night we ran out of toilet paper (this was a toilet shared by three rooms) and it wasn't replaced until the fourth night. Also on the first night somebody tracked mud all over the bathroom floor and into the only bathmat provided, leaving it way too dirty to use, and this wasn't dealt with at all (the dirty bathmat vanished at the same time as new toilet paper appeared, but it wasn't replaced so we were left with no bath mat and the bathroom floor was still muddy). Aside from this, we saw no evidence of housekeeping the whole time we were there, and the bathroom bin was quite full when we left.
You get what you pay for and the hotel was fine for the price, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone particular about cleanliness.

Chaval Knightsbridge made our vacation to London a great one. The location is so convenient to bus and tube stops. We easily saw the city while there are plenty of great places nearby as well. The two bedroom townhouse was perfect for our family of 4. Our two daughters were very comfortable in their own room with their own bathroom. The master was extremely nice and we used the kitchen quite a lot for easy, cheaper meals. The staff was incredibly helpful at all times of day and quickly fixed a small issue we had with an appliance. We will absolutely stay there again and hated leaving!
Arlington House is beyond spectacular. Spacious, clean, safe, and ideally located. You have a full kitchen, washer/dryer, heated towel racks, heated tile floors in the bath, a staff who greets you like family. Anyone giving this location less than a 5 star is mistaken and has personal issues.
Everyone here is terrific but special recognition goes to head concierge John Arnott. This gentleman is the definition of what a concierge should strive to be. He is a model ambassador for Arlington House with his energy and can-do philosophy.
It was a comfortable stay. Slight issue about the sensor lighting in the hallway: it came on as soon as you walk into the hallway to get to the toilet/kitchen from the room. This was very bright and glaring. There was nothing you could do about it unless you take the card out to cut off the electric to the lighting but then you won't have any light at all if you need to go to the toilet at night.
