S. Kensington area- Harrington Court or Collingham Serviced Apartments?

I am trying to decide whether to stay in the Collingham Serviced Apartments or the Harrington Court Apartments for 5 nights in January. We'll be 4 adults, so I'm looking for a 2 bedroom/ 2 bathroom flat.
The Collingham looks like it may be nicer, although perhaps smaller. The Harrington looks like it has a better location. Some of the reviews are not as positive.
Any suggestions?

Both apartment buildings look lovely but for a tourist the Harrington Court is the much better location, right at S. Ken tube stop which is two different lines including the Picadilly line to Heathrow. Especially in January when what might in spring weather be a lovely walk through a residential area to Collingham you will be so happy it is just a quick jump to the tube from Harrington Court. And the restaurants, shops etc. right nearby you will really enjoy.

I have stayed at the Collingham Serviced Apartments and it was amazing. flats were great and a few minutes walk to earls court and gloucester road where you also had picadilly line, circle and district so had lots of options. it was only a 10-15 minute walk to the museums which was great. I did not look at the Harrington but had a great time at the Collingham and would definitely recommend it. Hope that helps.
