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.

One of the best places to stay if you need somewhere to stay with easy access to London but at a reasonable price. It is a proper hotel with a decent bar and restaurant and good sized rooms. Staff are friendly, professional and efficient, the public spaces are comfortable and clean and it is a couple of minutes walk away from Earls court underground stations and into central London. The bed was fine, a bit soft for me but I slept OK. Bathroom, tea making facilities etc were fine. One interesting detail, my constant complaint about hotels is that they only provide small cups - I like a decent sized mug of tea. This BW hotel has mugs in the room (thank you very much BW and big tick from me) but small cups in the restaurant. Next time I'll try and remember to take a mug down with me for breakfast. All in all, a good hotel, I'm in London on average one night a week and will be booking in here as often as I can.

This location is excellent. Very close to the train stations (specifically Earls Court Station), restaurants and grocery stores. It is in a pretty and quiet location. Randy and the staff here are very friendly and accommodating. They offer a great breakfast (2 choices of buffet or English breakfast) so if you can work out a deal to have breakfast included it would be to your advantage. We would definitely stay here again without hesitation! Although there is no a/c they provide a fan and the window in the room opens. The average temp was in the mid 20's and we didn't find lack of a/c an issue. Loved this area!!

Hotel looks lovely but our room was tiny. I complained and was told that it was a standard double room. Could not walk round one side as the bed was right against the wall. Made it very difficult to get into bed. Would be even worse for an elderly couple. We stayed last weekend and on the Friday evening there was a very surly barman who obviously did not like his job and kept hiding in the restaurant! The only good thing about this hotel was the breakfast which was excellent. Also the location was good. Parking at the Holiday inn was only a five minute walk away but did cost £41 for 12-24 hours.

Good 'value' hotel. Clean, friendly and comfortable. Yes, it needed freshening up and better lighting in the room, but wow!, what a location! 4 minutes from the tube, (6 stops from Wimbledon), 100 yards from a buzzing high street with loads of pubs, restaurants / takeaways. Half hour stroll to Kensington Palace!

Great hotel within walking distance from earls court station which ison the Piccadilly line direct from Heathrow. Couple of great pubs close by, plenty of choices for food and close to museums. Room was extremely quiet for such a busy area.
