Maybe the hotel could have warned us the room was tiny! Gripe over....the Hotel is a fantastic location, staff very polite and courteous, very warm... More

The Kensington hotel was perfect for our family trip. The room was very good size (this could be because we needed something that fit a family of 4). Very comfortable beds. The staff was very helpful and lots of little extras that made our stay very pleasant. Good location. A little pricey but I think that is location and the... More

Stayed one night for The Who at Hyde park. Excellent location. Lovely reception bar area and staff pleasant. Room is very small but clean more of a single than a double sized. Pillows flat and mattress not the most comfortable. Breakfast was good quality and choice.

I booked to stay here as I was attending a concert in Hyde Park and, as I work in Kensington, I know this is a great hotel. Whilst you can find cheaper, you get what you pay for here.

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.
