I stayed here before taking of on a topdeck tour around Europe and I can say the service and staff are fantastic. One day I came back to the hotel room and found my clothes I had left lying around folded on the bed and thought that was very sweet the staff also kept a bag of food in the... More

This hotel is near the Underground, so it is easy to get to from the airport (HTR). The neighborhood is interesting, many pubs and restaurants. The room was acceptable, the staff friendly and helpful. Average value hotel in an expensive city.

One block from tube station, rooms could use some updating along with bathroom fixtures. No problems. In warm weather they will provide a fan if you need it, but no air conditioning like much of Europe. There is a safe in the room.

Lovely hotel with friendly and helpful staff. Great location, close to the main shops.Room was a little small but very comfortable and clean. Breakfast was very tasty and not too expensive. Will stay again when we return to London.

I regularly stay at the Burns if I need to be in London for one night only, as it is handy for the tube and very near shops, pharmacy, restaurants in a busy area. Barkston Gardens is a little green oasis off the main drag. I was allocated a top floor room on this occasion, freshly renovated I would say... More

A nice hotel in a nice location. Only a short walking distance to supermarkets, restaurants and Earl’s Court station which was very convenient. We stayed here in May and again in June 2016. Both rooms were clean and well maintained, however one was very tiny and the other quite spacious, so they must have a variety of rooms available. Both... More

My friend and I were allocated a twin room which was more the size of a single room. The ensuite bathroom was also rather tiny. However, as the hotel was situated very close to Earls Court tube station we felt that it was a good choice for our travel requirements. On the first night we were aware of a rather... 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.
