I choose this hotel as my partner and I wanted to be within walking distance from the Royal Albert Hall. We arrived at the hotel around 11:00 after a very short walk from Gloucester Road Tube Station. The Reception area is small and was quite busy upon our arrival but we were attended to very quickly by the friendly Receptionists.... More

Got a 3 person room here for a good price. Close to underground station and was very near great restaurants and even a Nandos! Hotel staff were very helpful and polite. Continental breakfast was tasty enough. Free wifi was available and had a decent connection from room. Lift was very small however which made trips up very awkward... The rooms... More

Bloody hot rooms but turn the radiator down and open the window it's fine. Showers also a bit hot and cold didn't work too well. However, big bed, cleanish walls and flooring and cute perfectly formed bathroom made this a reasonable choice for a night. Everything else has been said. It's fine if you're not expecting the Ritz and two... More

The best aspect of this hotel is by far the location. The proximity to Gloucester Road tube station was a real winner, with tubes to the likes of Knightsbridge and Victoria being less than a ten minute commute. The hotel is clean and staff were efficient and well mannered. Despite being small, my room was modern and a great standard... More

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

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...

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.
