This is a very nice hotel, good location and excellent service. Very good breakfast. The beds were not the most comfortable and the rooms are small. You can walk to the V and A museum and the Natural History Museum from the hotel. It is in the very convenient shopping area with some good restaurants nearby

This is the third time we've stayed here. Good location for restaurants and the tube. Near museums, Harrods , Kensington Gardens, and Royal Albert Hall. Staff very helpful. The only negative is an extremely small lift.

Beautiful Hotel in a fantastic location, tube across the road and the staff are very helpful. You can walk to Harrods, V&A Museum etc. So you can't fault the location or the staff, great attention yet not intrusive. Here's the thing as this is a former home the hallways are many, the fire doors more and the rooms tiny. You... More

There are so many choices for boutique hotels in London, the mind boggles. Some are crazy expensive, and even the "mid-range" choices can be disappointing when you open the door and nothing resembles online photos. I specifically wanted one of the row hotels that combine several 19th-century adjoining homes. With the Radisson Edwardian, everything is as hoped for. Despite it's... More

For a radisson blu in a prestigious part of London, I was slightly disappointed. The staff were great. The breakfast process was slow. Queues in the morning for the lady that checks our room number and name. Room was horribly small. Bathroom was good. Terrible bed. Corridors small. Door handles really low. Lift slow, and so far away from reception.

I chose this hotel because of its locality to the Royal Albert Hall (10 min walk) where we were going to see Eric Clapton. This is a beautiful hotel with lots of character and period features. We had a deluxe room which was very spacious and the bed was so comfortable, which was a joy after all the walking about... More

I used some of my Radisson points for this stay in London and booked the Edwardian Vanderbilt for its location, thinking it would be a suitable hotel for few days in London. I'm not sure whether it was because we used points, or whether it was normal procedure but our room was the size of a postage stamp, and the... More

This hotel is the old London residence of the prestigious family of that name, and as other reviewers have remarked, it retains the narrow corridors and tiny lifts that one would expect in such an old building. I have no issue at all with that; the quaint period features are what made me choose this hotel over similarly priced ones... More

Stayed at this hotel for business for 6 days in March. It is a small boutique like hotel with very narrow hallways, tiny lifts and small rooms with single beds. Though I do understand this is much more common in this area as opposed to North American Standards. Check in was decent and the service was quite good overall. They... More

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.
