We have stayed at this wonderful London B&B three times in the last four years. Very close to South Kensington tube station and within easy walking distance to restaurants, grocery store, post office and museums. Your hosts, Leonie and her husband are very helpful for directions, dinner reservations, bus routes, and general helpful advice. A limo transport to Heathrow with... More

The only thing better than this prime South Kensington location (3 minutes from the South Ken underground station), is Leonie & her staff! They were hospitable, knowledgeable and could not do enough for me. My room faced a quiet street, was comfortable (not luxurious) and clean. Bathroom was the size of a small postage stamp, but who cares, especially with... More

We stayed here immediately before my sons wedding largely because it was the only place which would guarantee to let us into the room to get ready by 1pm! The street is beautiful, the rooms were scrupulously clean, quiet, comfortable and warm and the beds were comfortable and the cotton sheets oh so soft. The decor was not as traditional... More

We recently returned from a 6 night stay at Aster House, which we saw recommended by Rick Steves. The location is fantastic, and Leonie was most helpful with directions, places to eat, and what to do. Breakfast was delicious, varied, and plentiful. We had room 1 and it was very comfortable and did not involve climbing steps. Everything was very... More

We have stayed at Aster House for years, and can always count on it to be clean, pleasant, and helpful. What's not to like about staying on the location for "The Street Where You Live" from My Fair Lady, a very short walk from the South Kensington tube station, close to lots of restaurants, museums, and Harrods? Good breakfast, adequate... More

Stayed here for five nights in November, 2014. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Room was comfortable and quiet. Excellent WiFi. South Kensington neighborhood is lively and accessible. Would definitely return on a future visit to London.

We splurged a bit but it was worth it. Located in a great location near the tube in an upscale neighborhood. Leonie went out of her way to help in every possible way. After flying over from the states we needed a nice tube and not a cramped shower and used it each of our five days. Very nice breakfast.... More

Located just a short walk from the South Kensington tube station on a quiet residential street, this is a great place to be in London. It's easy to walk to the Victoria & Albert Museum in one direction and Harrod's in the other, in addition to great shops and restaurants in the area. Leonie and Simon were very helpful in... More

We spent 5 nights at Aster House in August. Upon our arrival we were personally and warmly welcomed by Leonie. She was very willing to assist us to ensure we were able to truly take in the necessary sights of London which included arranging a car service to pick us . The breakfast in the atrium was a treat each... More

Hard working Leonie and Simon Tan run this very well located B&B just a short walk from the South Kensington underground station. Rooms are small and a bit dated, but the hosts are kind, helpful and eager to please their Guests. London is a very expensive city and the Aster House is a decent bargain compared to the big name...

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.
