We stayed in the hotel for the night. We chose this place due to it being linked to a theatre package deal and having good reviews on trip adviser. The staff are so lovely and they have a good little cafe at the reception and the breakfast was good. The rooms were neat & clean. The only things letting the... More

Ok so the building is beautiful the room was clean and tidy however i do think you are only paying for the location. The room lacked basic facilities such as an iron and enough wardrobe space (four hangers on a thirty cm rain) which i dont think is too much to ask when we paid £150 for one night. The... More

Supposed to stay 3 nights but we checked in and used the wifi to book at the Double Tree Westminster instead. The hotel is far from landmarks and tourist attractions. Our room was in the basement and smelled stuffy. No natuaral light and very very very small. Two single beds with worn-out matresses. It is not worth any money to... More

Our travel agent made the reservation on our behalf. No idea how they got a 3 star rating. In no uncertain terms: it sucks!! We were allocated one of the basement floor rooms. Stuffy, no proper duvets and crammed in. We got onto the WiFi, booked a different hotel and an Uber to get away from that place

Avni Kensington is in a great location, near to the tube, the museums and the Kensington highlights. The hotel; well you get what you pay for. Not the best, but not the worst. Check in was a bit clinical, speedy, but not the most welcoming. My room was adequate, there was only myself staying and it was big enough for... More

Small room, good bathroom but had no warm water first day. Breakfast minimal compared to other hotels of same category (no english breakfast available). Early morning can be very noisy because of large number of relatively low overflying planes to Heathrow. Friendly staff at reception.

Stayed here. TV didn't work properly (blue tinge on the screen).no air con One thin pillow each. Woke up with achey back. No bedside table. Fan was on Wall but did nothing for the heat. Bed pushed up against making access tricky. Booked with theatre ticket but even for the price, expected a bit more for the price.

Pictures are attached:- Only reason why I'm not giving this hotel 5 stars is because the air con was leaking water from the moment we got into the room until the moment we checked out seemed to only happen the most when air con was turned on but it was boiling outside and could not leave it off as only...

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.
