The hotel is very conveniently situated close to Gloucester Rd tube station and easily accessible by bus to Oxford St and Knightsbridge. We found a lovely French bistro nearby which had great food at good prices. The hotel was clean, convenient and the staff were helpful and friendly.

A well-located hotel & certainly cheap for central London. Reception staff were a bit varied - either really good or a bit vague. Our rooms were in the basement. Nicely decorated & very clean with good bathrooms & towels. It was cold though! In one room the radiator didn't work & there was an electric convector heater. In the other... More

The location is good, just a couple of minutes on foot from Gloucester Road tube's station, in a quiet zone, nearby you can find a Casino, some restaurants (Nando's and the pub were the best for us) and a chemistry (thing which resulted really useful as my brother got hill). We had one double and one triple room located on... More

The location of the hotel is excellent in walking distance of the tube which took about 5 minutes! When we arrived at the hotel we checked in and obviously said the name we booked under and said we booked with Avios the lady behind reception said "we don't work with Avios" but as soon as we got the booking confirmation...

We could hear constant humming, not sure where it was comming from, the view through the window was terrible, all we could see was walls and AC devices. There was no charge for using WiFi, the towels were changed every day, friendly and helpful staff, good location.

We got the hotel at a good price but breakfast not really terrible, the bar at the reception was a building site and work was going on at the time of our stay. Rooms ok. Very warm and central hearing nice. Nice bathrooms but I wouldn't stay again, on the other hand a nice location only 5mins from tube

This hotel was clean and tidy, the staff were helpful and the price was very reasonable. It came with breakfast (which was toast, cheese, cereal, yoghurt, ham and fresh fruit). The room was a double which had a reasonable sized bed, and small shower room.

Avni Kensington is a great and clean hotel.Its great location, its cleanliness and the fact that the linens were changed every day keeps it to the top of our list along with the great rates. The only negative point is that even though the staff was really friendly in the beginning in the end they didn't even say goodbye.Also the... More

Boyfriend and I just came back from our New Year's trip to London. We were staying at Avni Kensington Hotel , and our room was small, cute and tidy. I liked thick carpet, two heaters, so it was very comfortable and warm in the room. Bed was big enough and comfortable as well, and the most important, sheets were clean,... 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.
