My wife and I stayed at the Avni for 3 nights just before Christmas. The hotel is in a very nice area with so much to see around. Gloucester Road tube station is only 5 minutes walk away for a 10 minute rude to central London. The hotel is modern with nice decor and the rooms are a good size...

Rude counter clerk and management made for an unpleasant experience; Refused to give receipt after paying 3 nights, then upon check out, was informed I had stayed 5 nights! I argued and immediately changed hotels, and informed them such behavior should be reported and made aware to the public.

My friend and I booked this hotel as it was near to another hotel where I had an interview. The other hotel was far too expensive so we found the Avni. It's a very short walk from Gloucester Road train station. The staff were very friendly and the rooms were clean and comfortable. For the price that this hotel offered,...

First of all I notice that the Hotel only replies if you say something positive. They should reply also to constructive criticism. The Hotel is in a good location for getting around London. On arrival a quick check in,up to our room on the 4th floor,room 404, 12th December - 14th. Room was very hot with radiator on full blast,far...

To be fair the Avni is basic, a cheaper hotel and you get what you pay for. It was a comfortable bed, the room was warm a little on the small side but ok. The staff were always helpful and greeted you with a smile. The only negative compared to other hotels was that the breakfast was very basic, but...

We had stayed here 12 moths ago. Staff are friendly. Rooms are clean. Unfortunately our TV didn't work but we was only trying to watch the news. It gets very hectic in breakfast room so go early to beat the mad rush. Very central location 10 mins walk to south Kensington tube.

We stayed in this hotel for a short break in London. The location was great for visiting the museums. It was also close to the tube so we could get anywhere in London really easily. The only thing that would make the hotel better would be more choice at breakfast.

I'm halfway through my one-night stay, but not even a complimentary breakfast at Harrods would entice me to stay here again. 1. They demand photo ID on check-in. 2. You have to hand your key in when you go out. 3. The cold water doesn't run cold, so you have no drinking water. 4. The decor is a joke -...

Basic hotel, best thing is the location, 2 minute walk to the tube. Yes a budget hotel but £180 for 2 nights I at least expected a comfy bed but instead could feel the springs in my back. Customer service wasn't great either. Breakfast ok.

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.
