South Kensington is a commercial and exclusive estate located west of the city centre. The area features several trendy restaurants and designer fashion stores. The area also includes the French embassy and French "lycée" (high school) and therefore attracts many French natives. You will find high quality accommodations close to the station, however it comes at a price and you might need to compromise on location or surface unless you are ready to spend a lot on rent.
