Large and comfortable rooms, excellent breakfast and perfect location. Clean, but a little bit smelly rooms. I opened the windows for a couple of minutes so it was OK. Great value for money! The last star is missing because of and outdated Internet access policy. I will sure come back.

This hotel is great, perfect location. Less than a minutes walk from the tube station, surrounded by restaurants and 10 mins to Leicester square. The staff were really friendly and helpful. The room was great, nice size and really cosy, breakfast was awesome, so much choice and as much coffee as you want. I would recommend this hotel to anyone... More

I stayed on the 21st of feb, for one night room 454 which is a double room, rooms are very big and the beds was comfortable, but my only issue with the room is the bathroom, the sink was dirty and the bathroom overall needed a refurb along with the landing. Stairs are very dingy, bit like being in a... More

Stayed here many times and must say never fails to impress especially considering the hotel rate. Ideal location for Albert hall,Hyde park etc. Car park under the hotel also ideal if rather expensive but that's London for you.

Were given a free room (for the carer) after booking a Disabled access room.What a rare and fantastic gesture! Decent rooms, good breakfast, very nice food at Consortia restaurant where we had three meals. Also a really accessible hotel for disabled guests...could not fault it in any way! ( except the very slow lifts!)

This was our second stay here and it was as good as the first. Friendly, helpful staff. Clean well maintained room. Great variety at breakfast. Ease of getting to the station and able to walk into London.

My sister and I recently stayed here, travelling from Australia. The hotel is in a fantastic location. It is located within a 5 min walk to the Gloucester Rd tube station. There is also a great supermarket and chemist conveniently located within this 5 min radius of the hotel. The hotel itself is clean, comfortable and quiet. The rooms are... More

This is just as you would expect for a hotel pretty close to the centre of london that has hundreds of rooms. The room I had was 1007 and was clean but small. Having read reviews here I was aware that the wifi was expensive and so I joined the rewards club and even though I didn't book the room... 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.
