We stayed at The Cranley for 3 days of our 7-day trip to London, and I wish we had stayed at The Cranley the whole stay. Nothing else quite compared after it. Upon arrival, we were greeted by a very friendly staff and led to our room. We stayed in a beautiful, sunny four-poster room (#107, highly recommend) that was... More

We like to stay at the Cranley Hotel when visiting London. The location is excellent. Within walking distance of Kensington Gardens, High St Ken and the restaurants of South Ken. The rooms are small but very comfortable. The check in staff are friendly and efficient and the lounge is a nice place to enjoy tea or an evening cocktail. The... More

One night stay was wonderful. Room was very small but big window and high ceilings made it feel fine. No coffee/tea in room but lots of booze! Great location. Comfy bed with premium bed linen. Would stay again.

This hotel is well situated for visitors to the South Kensington museums and the Royal Albert Hall. It is less than 10 minutes walk from Gloucester Road tube station. The Hotel is not large, and has bedrooms on a number of floors, but does not have a dining room or restaurant. A simple breakfast is provided, juice, coffee/tea and bread/croissant... More

Had a one night stay, wish it had of been longer! Great location, walking distance to tube stations, great restaurants and pubs, Albert&Victoria museum, Hyde Park. Having read some of the negative reviews, I was pleasantly surprised. Check-in was friendly and efficient, the lobby/lounge area was gorgeous. The building is old, so of course there will be wear and tear... More

Our family stayed at the Cranley Hotel for a week last summer. It is a lovely hotel in a charming, safe neighborhood. There are several neighborhood restaurants nearby and it is close to several Tube stations. We had two rooms and had requested them to be close to each other because we didn't want our children to be too far... More

Location is accessible to bus and tube stations. Nicely decorated lobby. Friendly staff. Room is small, bathroom is very compact to the point of suffocation. Carpet is dirty, furniture is old, bed is uncomfortable, noise is disturbing, wi fi is horrible!

We stayed here one night after the hotel we had originally booked had plumbing problems and they transferred us to this hotel. There is a small, comfortable lobby and sitting room with a very warm and friendly staff. They lead us to a room on the same floor, just to one side of the lobby. It was through a double... More

We ended up in this hotel after our original booked hotel had plumbing problems. We were transferred via cab to this location on the opposite side of Hyde Park. The room (608) on the main floor was very small with hardly enough room for our two suitcases. The staff were extremely pleasant, professional, and willing to provide any accommodations which...
