I booked in January for a July stay and the best I got was a semi basement room. Still of a good size and spotless clean. NH used to offer a pillow menu. Now no more. This was effectively what had (strangely enough) attracted us to NH in general and also enrol in the NH rewards scheme. This was my... More

Stayed here on business in the middle of the tube strike. Staff went out of their way to find me transport, often phoning 5 different cab companies & giving updates on the strike / local impact. Good, fast room service & friendly smiley staff.

Earls Court tube station is a 5-minute walk away, allowing good .access to most attractions in London Our room (standart room) was spacious enough, facing the hotel garden and was very... More

I visited London for a week with my sister last summer and stayed in this hotel. I love the Earls Court area as it has lots of bars and restaurants and great tube connections, and this hotel is only about 5-10 minutes walk from the tube station, so it was a perfect location. The room was actually very spacious for... More

Great hotel in a great spot, 10 minutes away from the Natural History Museum and 5 mins from 2 different tube stations. great value for money, the rooms were immaculate and plenty big enough for 2 of us staying two nights. Would definitely stay again, what more could you want for the money!

We enjoyed out two nights at NH Kensington and chose it for its easy access to Wimbledon for the tennis and to central London, both via the nearby tube. The staff were very friendly and helpful and quickly resolved our problems with the tea/coffee facilities -no milk, just Earl Grey tea, only one cup. It is obviously a hotel run... More

The hotel offers all the properties expected from its star level. Room sizes are adequate, our rooms were looking to a nice garden. The staff is very nice, helpful yet cordial. This makes a positive difference on top of the premises. However the housekeeping is below standards. They did not change towels left on the floor, which is a sign... 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.
