Average Hotel, where the rooms were quite small and the whole hotel had a bit of a compact set up. Good Breakfast spread in a nice dining area, mine wasn't included but it was easy enough to grab a voucher in the morning. Their Hot Chocolate is good and room service isn't too bad either. Very easy to get to... More

Great location close to the tube & buses with a quick ride to major tourist spots. The staff were friendly & helpful, breakfast was very average. Room was clean but small & we were stuck in the dungeon (-1).

Ideally placed near restaurant and Earls Court tube. My room was small but clean fair price for London! TV, free wifi, shower/ bath, beds ok, I didn't use the restaurant so I can't comment, but there is a huge choice a couple of minutes away Staff were pleasant, no complaints

Quick easy check in basic but clean room with a nice bathroom, small bar not much seating but David the barman was pleasant and polite. Continental breakfast with a good choice of food, you can upgrade to full English for £3. Location great short walk from Kensington tube station, would definitely stay again.

My room is small but it's clean. The bathroom is recently renovated but there's not much room. My room is very clean and there's a table fan if you find it hot. There's no air conditioning. Wifi is good.

Hotel and rooms were small, but clean from what I saw. Perfect for the 22 hours I spent in London - close to the Earl's Court tube station and easy to get to major sites, And lots of stores and a few restaurants nearby. The only negative was the shower, which seamed a but treacherous. Not really sure who designed... More

Long day unless you get sleep on a plane and most people don't. Rooms are small but comfortable, Funny story though someone locked us out in the garden I had to climb... More

Stayed at BW Burns for 3 nights with my daughter, in nice position well served by Underground, restaurants and shops nearby. Structure is tiny bit old but clean and comfortable, double room was spacious and clean. Breakfast abundant. Staff very friendly and obliging. I'd recommend.

We stayed mid week, and were given a lower ground floor recently renovated room. The room, although a little dark was nice a cool on a hot summers night. And to be fair, following check in and dumping our bags we were out all evening so the room being a little dark didn't matter. The breakfast the next morning was... More

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel which is conveniently placed for the tube and sightseeing. The room was spacious enough and breakfast was good. It was very quiet too - a bonus in London. The light carpet in the room had seen better days but overall, the room was clean and had all we needed. One new waitress was... 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.
