My husband and I do not stay at super nice hotels, we're pretty low-key. The hotel itself has a lot of potential but really needs to be updated/cleaned a little better. My main complaint was the shower in our room was SCALDING hot. We tried to adjust it and even tried just taking a shower with only cold water but... More

It's a perfect place to stay in order to visit london from the "inside". Placed in the heart of Earl's Court there's the famous train station from where you can be anywhere in London. The hotel is cheaper than most the hotels in the area, but WIFI not working, "strange" attention from employees and some old rooms will make you... More

The location is good as all the reviews will attest, but with such an amazing underground tube system anywhere in London can be just as convenient. I chose to stay in a what I thought was a more residential style hotel, for the more authentic English esthetic, unfortunately I didn't understand that this meant a complete lack of modern conveniences!...

My son and I visited London and stayed here in February. It suited our needs to a tee. There are no frills here, and no elevator either, but our room was clean, the bathroom large, it's in a lovely quiet square with a good breakfast pub on the corner (The Blackbird) and a block from the Earl's Court tube, which...

The loacation is perfect...5 minutes to the tube station, few supermarkets around, easy access from Heathrow airport. The breakfast could be better, but still fine. The staff is friendly. It is simple and clean hotel for the good price in a good place. Will come there again.

We stayed 4 nights recently in room 12 and were less than impressed. The hotel location is great with just a short stroll to Earl's Court station pubs and shops but that is where the benefits end. No elevator so a difficult climb with luggage. The room filled with old and mismatched furniture and fittings. The bathroom tired with lime... More

We had the front room in the basement. Very small but plenty of light, comfortable beds, surprisingly quiet. Older furniture, a bit shabby, but livable. The staff was friendly. The plumbing was the major drawback. The faucets in the sink were impossible for us to shut off, it was difficult to flush the toilet completely and the water pressure in... More

I have several issues with this hotel but will start with the good points: it's reasonable clean and comfortable and the staff I spoke to were pleasant though their English wasn't always good. It's in a quiet neighbourhood just a couple of minutes walk from Earl's Court underground station and there are plenty of shops and restaurants nearby. I ended... More

Maranton House near Earls Court is a safe hotel in a charming neighborhood. The hotel does not have an elevator. We stayed in #20 and the back room can be very noisy from the neighborhood, as the sound seems to echo up. Overall, it is a clean, safe hotel within easy walking distance of Earls court and many pubs and... More

Based on TripAdvisor ratings, we booked our 4 day/5 night stay at the Maranton House Hotel. The price was average, about 100 pounds a night and was in walking distance to the tube and in a decent area. The room we were given was 5 flights up the narrow staircase (no one offered to assist us with carrying our many... 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.
