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.

Stayed here three nights in early December. The three-bed room on 4th floor was very tiny. No chairs so we had to sit on the beds. Cleaning ok. Very friendly and serviceminded staff. Breakfast better than expected. Central location and reasonable price. Recommended.

We really liked the staff. They were nice and accomodating. The room was a little stinky and this was because the bathroom was moldy and had absolutely no ventilation. Our clothes smelled of it once we left. The location is great. There are bars and restaruants two markets a the tube station, several parks and the museums within walking distance.... More

The breakfest was very good and valuable, but the double room was wery small. The bathroom had no lock so the doors cant completely close. Rooms on the floor has got small window above door to the corridor, so if someone dont turn light off, it shone it to the room.

We had a family room for 5 and it was great value. Room was small & basic. Bathroom vented straight to bedroom (door had gaps top & bottom) so no privacy there. Breakfast reasonable and service very friendly. At the price couldn't be beaten. Location wonderful.

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.
