We were staying at this hotel in the mid of July and the price was a big factor. We could not find anything better for the same money within the same area. The room was small, on the last floor (attic area) with a semi window there but, as I have said before, the price was great and we were... More

Basic hotel. Our room was more of a private hostel room than that of a 4-star hotel. Slightly disappointed as not what we were expecting. Staff not particularly friendly. However, the room was clean and warm and the hotel was in a good location. Lots of restaurants nearby and a very short walk to Earls Court Station.

Stayed here for a night for the very good price of £42 after a deal on Hotels.com. The reception area has a rather nice traditional look to it which made a good impression on check in. The hotel is in the heart of Kensington. The area is beautiful and feels very safe. It is a stones throw from High a... More

We had a very disappointing stay at the hotel in the quadruple/family room last Saturday. The beds were so uncomfortable, especially 2 out of 3 beds. The sofa bed was completely unusable and so springs or metal parts were broken and sticking out under the bed. The 2nd bed had was no better and luckily it was for a child.... More

Stayed at the hotel for seven nights with a friend for winter holiday. Hotel is close to Gloucester road underground station and walking distance from the Museum of Natural History, Science Museum and Victoria & Albert museum. The place was nice and room was clean although a bit small. Beds in our room were really bad, we could feel the... More

This is not a healthy place to stay. The carpet on the floor is very dirty as is everything else in the tiny room. Also they only change the bed sheets when guests check out, otherwise you have to specifically ask for it. If you are bigger than a normal size, don't bother, you will not be able to move... More

My husband and I were attending a smart, late function in the area so we thought it would have been nice to have a place to get changed and get a few hours sleep rather than taking a cab home. The location and the price were perfect for our purpose and we didn't really care too much about the negative... More

I’ve been to London for a couple of days – to sightsee. And this place is good for this purposes, it is relatively cheap and located in good place, no more than 10 minutes’ walk from V&A, Natural History Museum and Science Museum. Not to mention Hyde Park in almost the same proximity. But besides price and location there are... More

Lovely hotel with great facilities, breakfast etc. But do not use their wifi. It took me hours to remove all the crap that it downloaded. My PC was virtually useless after logging on. And it cost me 2 pounds to trash my PC.

Recently had a 3-night stay, reception staff were ignorant, room was absolutely tiny for a double room. No mirror in room, small mirror in bathroom but nowhere near an electricity socket to dry hair (acceptable if your a man with short hair!), bathroom very small, unable to sit on toilet without sitting sideways to get my long legs in!

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.
