The BW Burns is a very nice place to stay. The staff are brilliant. The rooms are reasonably spacious and comfortable. The hotel is well positioned for public transport and restaurants. I would recommend this hotel to my family and friends.

This is very central to Earls Court Tube. The Hotel is a grade II listed building close to Knightsbridge. I had a single room which was adequate for my needs with a new modern renovated bathroom. There was a walled garden terrace off the dining room. Breakfast was OK with quite a few staff who were very well dressed and... More

Staff are super friendly and always willing to answer every question we threw at them! The hotel itself needs a massive renovation.... The lifts are extremely small and creepy. Our room was an actual shoebox with many faults. The window opens a tiny amount - to which we found 4 dirty socks hanging outside. The room lock snapped the first... More

The Burns is a small hotel and our taxi drivers often had to look it up. The staff we're all very helpful. Our room was small but very clean and confortible. The location had many pleasant restaurants. The tube was a block away, as were the bus lines. The staff looked up bus directions for area attractions such as the... More

This place has such potential. The staff are great and try their best but the hotel is so unloved in appearance. Our room was fine, perfectly clean and well equipped but lacking something. The location is amazing. There is a terrace garden that really needs some attention but could be lovely. But as mentioned by other reviewers - it needs... More

The hotel is okay and clean, but the rooms are worn and a bit shabby. Many small hotels in London don't have or need air-conditioning, but usually the windows open wider than 2 inches. The toilet takes forever to fill, which is an inconvenience if more than one person is staying in the room.

My friend was visiting from South Africa and, at the end of our holiday, we had a couple of nights in London. The hotel was so easy to reach from the tube but on a quiet street with a lovely view from the window. At the end of the road was every kind of restaurant you could want. A short... More

We've stayed at several Best Western hotels and have been happy with them but a bit disappointed with this one. Room a bit tired with a marked carpet and scuffed walls and a huge cobweb in one corner. No air conditioning and we had no window to open as only French doors which opened onto smoking area next to the... More

Went here for the night and visited some nice places. Hotel is lovely and staff friendly. Room was beautiful but only fault too hot, as no air conditioning. Breakfast good cooked to your order. Beautiful location set in a private square in Kensington.

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.
