Very disappointed in this hotel - great location as we were going to The Proms - poor room with dirty windows - had to get an engineer up to open one! Breakfast awful - scrambled eggs out of a packet - bacon tasteless - tea the worst I have tasted! Pity! It used to be good!

The room stank of smoke and the windows didn't open. The cleanliness of the room was very poor and the air conditioning unit was very noisy. That was a superior room so I dread to think what a standard room was like. The iron was useless and the general appearance was of a very tired hotel.

We usually stay at this hotel when we visit London. We like the snack bar just inside the main door. You can even get pancakes. We also liked the dining room. Do not lock in a price, use a flexible price booking. We commend Souchiada for going the extra mile by showing us the different room types and ringing the... More

Strategically located and safe. Easy access to London Underground. Friendly and helpful staff. Room Toilet needs to be upgraded especially the amenities. Very close to high street Kensington. It's a 10 mins walk from the hotel.

Lovely public areas and friendly cooperative staff. Very convenient for the station etc. Good breakfast. Rooms tired and in need of updating. Windows very dirty. Bathroom not very clean. No information book so nothing about meal times, local attractions etc. A very indifferent stay.

Great central location and the staff are really friendly. We have stayed at the hotel on a number of occasions and were fortunate enough to get upgraded to a club room. Breakfast in the Club Lounge was lovely:-).

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.
