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.

I arrived early from the airport and was pleasantly surprised that I was able to check in early at no extra cost as the room was available. The staff were friendly and helpful, organising routes and offering advice on all manner of things. Good location, less than a 5 min

The hotel was adequate; good location. However, I was disappointed about the reduced quality of the full English breakfast. It used to feature grilled tomato and black pudding - both of which have vanished from the menu since last I stayed there. A great shame as both are an

Very comfortable stay in a convenient location - only 2 mins walk from Earls Court station. Cosy and comfortable. Quiet rooms, friendly staff. Rather disappointed with the late start for breakfast (7.00 on a weekday) but overall a good experience. Good value for money compared

Depends on how long you will be staying. If it's only a short stay a single will be fine but any longer might be worth the upgrade to a double.

We booked through a travel agent and when we got there we asked them to enter our Best Western membership details into their system.....and it appears that if I hadn't done that we would not have accrued stop over points....so my advice would be to definitely show them your membership card. There's also an excellent old English pub a short walk down towards the Earls court underground train station that serves ok meals if you haven't got breakfast included at the Hotel
