Value for money and will use again as so... More

It's probably the only place IN London that the budget-minded can go (were it NOT in South Kensington, it would be over-priced). It is within walking distance of the Underground (Buckingham Place, Baker Street, and Piccadilly Circus are within the local fare zone) and within walking distance of the Natural History Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum. Clean, if... More

We stayed at this "hotel" on the weekend, we booked a room for 3 adults which was very small and dated. We were on the ground floor which was so noisy we hardly slept due to doors banging and other guests talking (the walls are paper thin). In the morning we went for breakfast but it was awful, the room... More

This is an economy hotel in a good location close to trains, buses etc. The breakfast in the morning is not economy, it's outstanding! The included breakfast was fast as well as quality. The rooms were small, but adequate and decently clean, but you needed to ask for certain things like soap. Beds were getting old, but overall for the... More

The beds werent too comfy, and the towels will leave you chaffed - but you will leave feeling like you are part of the family! The breakfast was awesome!

The hotel is very well located in a very posh area of London with earls court and Gloucester rd tube stations both a few minutes walk away. The room itself is very basic, there a bed, a bathroom and that's pretty much it. No cups, no soap etc and whilst there is wifi you have to sit in the reception... More

Stayed last year on fourth floor so out the way really it was good. Staff very friendly too friendly in some cases talking loudly about politics in their own country to which I had no interest but we're so loud. Room was grubby and smelly with no storage. Bathroom mouldy, pillows thin, also this time on ground floor level we... More

It is central London so a very good price, the staff are very friendly but the rooms are small. if you want a base in Central London and this is somewhere just to sleep then it's OK. Biggest let down is the WiFi only in the reception area's that really would be my reason not to return.

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.
