I would recommend this hotel if you're not picky and just want some decent place to stay. This is one of the most basic, no-frills hotel, and also the smallest one I've been in. The single room is tiny. Probably just slightly bigger than Harry Potter's room under the stairs in the Dursley's house. The toilet? Even smaller. The doorway... More

This is a fair and decent hotel. Don't expect four-star quality, but to the price it is a fine place. The service is generally good, and the staff is helpful. The breakfeast is decent, but service can be a bit confusing here (the waitress' are very busy, and its hard to get their attention). We had two rooms (three travelling... More

We were a bit worried having read the reviews after we'd booked but still went. We were going to the Royal Albert Hall so just wanted somewhere cheap and close by. 5* it's not but then at £85 for 1 nights B&B you can't go wrong. We arrived an hour before check in but the lovely lady on reception said... More

The room was a little basic and the breakfast was rubbish. The male receptionist on check-in was totally uninterested although the female receptionist on check-out was much friendlier - as were the laundry ladies. It was in a convenient place to where I needed to be but I doubt I will be staying here again.

This hotel is situated near to metro approx 3 min by the walk. I can recommend for tourist trip, very good starting position for sight-seeing. The room was clean and sufficiently equiped. The staff was very friendly and pleasant. They solved all with smile.

A hotel easy to get to and located not to far from Earl's Court station. We visited London for one night with a group of four. We had the executive en suite room in the basement that was quite o.k. Enough space and the en suite bathroom was spacious enough. The shower was excellent. Our other fellow travelers had a... More

We chose this hotel because its close to Earls Court tube station (4 mins walk) which is in Zone . . . and the pictures looked good. However don't believe everything you see because the hotel is tired and in desperate need of a facelift. Holes in carpets, pealing paper and doors with no handles. It was impossible to actually...

Room is dingy and tired. Mattress has several springs sticking out making it extremely uncomfortable. Just phoned down to reception to ask if we can swap rooms. No! Told them why and response was nothing we can do with no apology. I will be asking for a refund in the morning but at midnight there's not a lot of other... 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.
