The room I was given was clean but very small, and so was the washroom. Taps need fixing, and probably a bit of renovation. Anyway, the price was very fair for this area, the hotel is close to the tube and 15 minutes walk from Olympia, the city fair, and the staff was ok.

I stayed here with a friend for a weekend and we both liked it. It's conveniently located near Earls Court tube station. The hotel is located at a busy road indeed but we could not hear the traffic when the window was closed. The staff is very friendly and we would definitely come back

I was looking for an accomodation at midnight of a hot saturday, after a check out from an indecent hotel. The guy at reception was very gentle, i got a very good room at a very good price considering the place. Silent, clean, air conditioning working well. It doesn't achieve the 5 stars because of the private bathroom and the... More

Clean and nice hotel in a nice area of London. At breakfast,the staff were a bit stressed. It was no calm and easy start on the day. was a bit chaotic and messy ,and guests had to wait a while to be seated (where the staff decided,not where you preferred...)

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.

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.
