For me the heart of London is South Kensington because that is where I grew up. It used to be cosmopolitan and funky, now it’s still cosmopolitan but also very ritzy. There are so many hotels, you’d expect competition to bring down prices, but there must be even more demand because most if not all hotels are much less good... More

It's fair to say Chelsea Cloisters gets a very mixed assortment of reviews, after staying here, I am left wondering what planet those who mark down this accommodation are from. Absolute prime location and unquestionably value for money. It is true the rooms are dated in parts, the wooden floors are worn, but hell, who sleeps on the floor? The... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night just recently. To be honest, the photos we had seen on the website previously were kind of deceiving compared to the room we actually stayed in. The room was outdated and a little shabby, in need of a paint and re-decorating in general. Alongside this, the windows were all single paned,... More

Do not be fooled by the reception which is beautiful, clean and modern. The rooms are disgusting and dirty, with stains on the curtains, mould in the bathroom, dirty sides and tables, filthy floors, finger prints and grime on the windows... Just a poor shocking excuse for a room We were also greeted by a big hole on the floor... More

We stayed for 4 weeks as we needed a full time base in London. Price for this length of stay was therefore key, and after much searching found that Chelsea Cloister offered a big discount for longer stays, and it was in a great location. The staff were very friendly, and maid service was nice to have every day, and... More

I am currently staying at Chelsea Cloisters and unfortunately have another 3 weeks here (which is nonrefundable). I am staying in a studio room which if you happen to be a small billy goat the room will suffice! If however you are a normal sized human being you are going to struggle here (if you have claustrophobia dont bother). The... More

Firstly, I could not classify this as a hotel. Stayed here for two nights to attend a wedding on 14th November. Looking at the photos on website it is clear that there are very different standards of rooms. Ours was very basic- a two bedroom apartment. The double bed was clean and comfortable apart from a detached bed head and... More

Booked hotel on line, the review pictures showed a larger size room than the one we actually booked so we were disappointed as the room was very small. When we arrived, our room had been given to another person by mistake so had a long wait whilst the staff sorted out another option. Night staff were really wonderful, and always... More

Stayed 1-10 Oct 14. Reception area outstanding. Elevators were small but there were enough of them not to have to wait long. Office personnel from Ecuador and Portugal were very helpful with all my inquiries. Hotel manager, also Portuguese, was very professional. Only mention nationalities because I didn't get their names. Had a corner apartment. Only two of us, each... More

I hate writing bad reviews but.....I booked this hotel for £150.00 for one night, as I had been feeling rather down I thought I would treat myself to a touch of luxury. I came into the hotel by the wrong entrance and when I was eventually found the reception I was delighted at the modern, spacious area. My room was... More

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
Wealth courses through The King's Road, Chelsea's upmarket artery of West London life packed with shops, eateries and glitzy nightspots. For people-watching at its best and luxury retail therapy that's largely unrivalled, this area cannot be missed. But if this showy street starts to overwhelm or a moment of price tag shock sends you reeling, a quick detour down pretty much any of many King's Road veins will reveal a quieter side of Chelsea. Here the stately Royal Hospital hosts its world-famous flower show, and the Thames rolls along at a lazy pace, with leafy Battersea Park and its Peace Pagoda beckoning from across the river.
