Hotel did its job, a place to sleep and grab some breakfast. Staff were pleasant when we were there, breakfast was decent & breakfast room was spacious. Room was small, but a decent size, which we weren't fussed about. On the other hand, however, the room looked like it could have been updated. It looked like under the mattress hadn't... More

Unfriendly and not-qualified reception staff, extremely poky rooms and old-fashioned lounge. Poor breakfast and low quality facilities. In general there has been an sad, gloomy atmosphere. The ladies served breakfast were an exception.

The room that I stayed in was quite big but the bathroom was very small. Relatively clean. Location is good just 5-7mins away from the tube station. The staff was nice and friendly. I couldn't bring the hotel keys out with me whenever I leave the hotel. I would have to leave it with the reception which was slightly inconvenient.... More

I was visiting London for the weekend to attend a workshop so reading the small room reviews didn't bother me as I was alone and wouldn't be spending a lot of time in the room. I was actually okay with the room size .... However it was in a shocking state, all the walls had marks and gouges out of... More

The location is great, only few minutes away from a tube. The hotel is in a quite residential neighbourhood. The rooms are of modest size, but it's a great place to stay on a budget with free Wi-Fi access.

Small but perfectly adequate room & great location for food & underground. View was of the air condition unit but on the plus side, no noise from the road our friends had at their hotel. No bar, but we bought wine & beer, they were very happy for us to use the fridge in reception

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.
