A B & B, would provide you with much better service..... The breakfast was awful, the dining room floor was disgusting; the bed was as hard as a rock, the bathroom and accessories provided were poor too..... Avoid this place!!

Stayed here and the service was very poor, the sheets were torn. The breakfast was disgusting stale bread to make toast and a nasty yoghurt with water! besides that i left my tablet in the room and they claimed they could not find it until i threatened to inform the police and it miraculously turned up.

My room was filthy, layers of dust everywhere and you could tell no Hoover had been used for a long while. The shower was rusty with mound in the bathroom and the worst thing of all? I ended up covered in bites which I was later told were from a spider. When I complained I was told "catch a spider... More

Stayed at the Hotel Oliver for one night recently whilst down for a rugby match, found the hotel staff to be very friendly and helpful, the bedrooms were clean and relatively comfortable, the hotel itself is showing day to day wear it suited our needs.

We went there as soon as we arrived to London and the rooms where really normal and clean with the basic in it (shampoo, clean towel...). the only thing was that they cleaned the rooms once in two days instead of a daily cleanance. The breakfast was a British one with many things (but not a buffet one) like tea,... More

Although the Location was pretty good that was not worth the amount of money that was charged. Upon arrival we were allocated our room and told that you have to pay a deposit for a TV remote and leave your key behind the desk whenever you leave which we did not feel comfortable with. The room was tiny, far too... More

Location is the major plus. They also arranged for a swanky BMW to take me to my conference location the next day which did not cost much more than a London taxi would have. On the negative side : Rusty sanitary fittings, torn blankets, Spartan breakfast, deposit for the TV remote (!!!), seriously shaky elevator, TV screen slightly bigger than... More

I stayed for 5 nights whilst working in London I had a double room at the side of the hotel, it was very noisy at night with the traffic on the main road, which made sleep impossible, I should imagine rooms at the back would be better The room was small, TV mounted on the wall, wardrobe,draws etc The towels...

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.
