This place is horrible. Full of rats running around and teenagers taking drugs from the hotel. The management couldn’t care less apart from making money. Avoid this place at all cost!

The rooms were excellent. They are well equipped with a good sized bathroom that’s been freshly fitted out. The rooms have single bunk beds so feel a bit like a hostel but they are comfortable and the bedding is fresh and clean. If you need...More

To many Scouts and certainly those visiting from abroad, Baden Powell House is seen as the HQ of the Scouts. Yet apart from the statue of BP outside, it is most unwelcoming and shows very little evidence of Scouting. Inside on the floor plan, an...More

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

I wouldn’t bother with this place. Staff, rooms, facilités just awful. This place should really shut down!
