2 minute walk from Gloucester Rd Tube Station - 5 minute walk to Natural History Museum, so was a perfect location for a first visit as a family to London with my husband and 6 year old son. Welcome was warm and smiley and had a lovely banter with man on front desk and he was so kind and friendly...

When we arrived we found they had messed up our booking but they were happy to give us a room before everything was sorted. We appreciated the good red wine they later gave us when our booking was confirmed. Very close to Gloucester Road tube station and South Kensington tube both these have many and varied eating places. Close also...

I like the Radisson Blu chain and have stayed in a number of their hotels. They have never disappointed--until now. This one was incredibly disappointing because of the poor management attitude towards guests. The rooms are smallish, but many hotel rooms in London are small. Yes, the water system is old and when a guest flushes their toilet, the shower...

What with three world class museums on the doorstep, and Harrods a short walk away....location is terrific. Hotel appears to be an amalgam of Victorian houses linked into each other...so a mass of doors and corrdors to negotiate....but good rooms...if lacking daylight at the rear...with good sleep quality and a really top class breakfast. I'll return.

Excellent experience with a joyful team of employees. The location is perfect, close to Gloucester Road tube station, an easy pick to anywhere in London.

We stayed at this hotel when we flew into London. We only had one night before we flew out to Ireland. Reception was very friendly and helpful. We had an enjoyable dinner in the Indian Food restaurant that evening, then we went to bed early to catch up with our jet lag. The next morning we went down for breakfast...

As you approach this impressive building , you feel there's a certain quality. Reception was warm and most helpful, directing me to the 8th floor suite. Plush and luxurious are what echoes with stunning views of the capitals skyline. For those unfamiliar with the architecture, the most iconic buildings and landmarks are etched in line along the bottom of the...

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.

An imposing Georgian mansion in fashionable South Kensington, the four star Radisson Blu Edwardian Vanderbilt stays faithful to its past but espouses modern comfort in a classic London cityscape of porticos and leafy squares.
