The Samarkand was established in 1959 as a small self catering apartment-hotel at Lansdowne Crescent and as the name suggests as an Inn for travellers from afar.

We provide service-apartments to clients and personnel of EU and International Banking and Corporate Bookings based in London.

Our beautiful residence is listed for its architectural and historic interest by English Heritage in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.

Lansdowne Crescent is within walking distance of the Notting Hill and Holland Park subways in easy reach of business and shopping centres close to the heart of London.
