In my Harrington Hotel room right now. Day three of a 6 day stay in London. So pleased with our hotel room. For London, extremely spacious. Love having a frig and microwave! Bed is also so very comfortable. Yes... some of the comments about the furniture being a bit tired were correct but who cares. I'll take a larger hotel... More

We chose this hotel according to its pluses displayed online. The location is excellent - an easy stroll to Hyde Park, Kensington Palace and the V & A; nice shops and very good pubs within walking distance. However, the rooms did not match the photos advertised; neither television worked (although we didn't want to watch them, they should work for... More

The hotel has the perfect location but is really worn out and has really bad windows - we had to sleep with earplugs... Great potential though should the hotel owner change the windows and maintain the rooms better...

This was my first stay here and I was a bit surprised to be booked into an apartment for an overnight business stay. That said, it was very good and, apart from a little confusion on check in, onsite staff were very helpful. It's well situated in South Kensington, 2 mins from Gloucester Riad tube and 5 mins or so... More

Stayed in apartment 401 for a girlie weekend, 3 of us and the apartments were fabulous, spacious, central (50 yards to nearest tube station) could not have been better. Granted some paint touch-ups could be done in the bathroom but not at all a problem, it was a joy to do what we wanted and the kitchen had everything you... More

It is a good location hotel but a neglected one. Not worth the money they charge for. It was disappointing to see the room with broken walls and thorn sofa, but it was much more disappointed to hear the reaction: "I will tell the manager" without any further further act/reaction until the day we left.

We had tickets for Royal Albert Hall and wanted somewhere close, this was ideal. Nice size room with separate kitchen with all electrical goods we needed for our breakfast. A very nice bathroom with bath and freestanding shower. May I also add that the bed was very comfortable which is most unusual. I would book here again without hesitation. We... More

Great location and comfortable apartment. Friendly staff. The apartment (205) was good. One of the leather sofa was quite worn out but did not spend much time in the apartment anyways ! Great cafes in the area.

Staying in South Kensington

Neighborhood Profile
South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
