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! Breakfast... More

This hotel was decent enough for us not to cancel and find something new, but barely. The staff was either rude, or didn't care that we were there. The linens were clean but the room was worn down with dirty carpet, what seemed to be mold in the shower, etc. We had a basement room and with no explanation, the... More

We stayed at the hotel this weekend and it very nearly ruined a friends get together for winter wonderland. 1st the good bits its convenient location for Earls court and the smart lobby. That was it. We were sent to our rooms downstairs from the lobby. The rooms were compact, which wasnt a massive issue considering what we paid, however... More

The entrance and lobby look really nice, it is after you get the lift up that things change, the rooms aren't as small as some of the Paddington Hotels but look beige and uninviting. It would have been a convenient stay in a convenient location but the single pillow was as thin as the duvet, the shower was either scalding... More

This is the 2nd time I've stayed at this hotel. Basically, I'm looking for a hotel Monday to Friday as in London on business. I need it cheap (as paying for it myself) however, it HAS to be reasonable and a good location, ruling out quite a few. This hotel fits the bill perfectly. It's within 5 mins walk from... 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.
