The Woodley Hotel is conveniently located only about 0.2 miles from a tube station, so the location is a highlight. The rooms are very small but clean, and the shower had weak water pressure. Breakfast was not included, although the restaurant downstairs in the hotel is nice. The bar attached to the restaurant is very charming and stayed open late.
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.
