Arrived rather late after a busy work day. The hotel is ideally suited close to Gloucester Rd Tube and a big Waitrose, plenty of restaurants in the area too. The staff were helpful and all went efficiently. I had a studio apartment in the basement. Initial disappointment was worn carpets on the way down to the basement and being told... More

Our family of 4 (2 adults, a 12 year old and a 15 year old) stayed in a 2 bedroom on the third floor and it was great. There is a tiny but fully functional kitchen, a good size bedroom with 2 beds for the kids, a large living/dining room and good size master with queen bed. The master has... More

We chose this hotel based on its location to the royal Albert hall, through a well known online booking site. The location is fantastic and upon first impressions we were pleased with the room, a small and well appointed kitchen area, large double bed and ensuite bathroom. What we hadn't considered however was the noise coming from the air conditioning... More

The location was great, a two minute walk to the tube and close to a few bus routes. Good size apartment. Horrible shower where hot water seemed to run on a pump.

This is my favourite neighbourhood to stay in in London. It is full of great restaurants and is easy to get anywhere from on the tube. The rooms at the Harrington were really nice. The bed was very comfortable ad we had a full kitchen. As well the staff were very accommodating and helpful to any requests.

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.
