After reading terrible reviews, we were dreading our stay at the Kensington Edwardian. It was, however, the cheapest hotel we could find and being 18 and skint, it seemed our best option. And so we took the risk and were ... pleasently surprised!! It was clean + tidy, quite spacious and the staff were very helpfull. We were not distubed...

I'll begin with the negative. We booked a double bed and were given two twin size beds. Our room had a nice view of the street, which is a nice neighborhood. However, with no air conditioning and no fans, it was very hot. If you opened the door to the balcony, the sound of cars on the street below kept...

The reviews for this hotel were terrible and we thought that it had been a big mistake to book here, but we were pleasantly surprised. We had a superior double and single room and they were both clean and serviced on a daily basis. The bathrooms and towels were clean and there was hot water at all times. The staff...

We stayed here in late March. We upgraded to a superior room for are stay. Yes, it is a european hotel which means it is old and small. The superior rooms are renovated. the bathroom was clean along with the floors. it was cozy and worth the money. It was close to pubs.

I have stayed in 19 foreign countries throughout Europe, Hawaii, and Scandinavia. If I had not paid for this hotel in advance (without seeing it) I never would have stayed there. The windows were covered by filthy sheer curtains hanging on a line of string. The carpet was disgusting and there was matter on the walls that looked as if...

first of all let me confirm I am not a black-hearted guy, but what I saw & felt in this hostel that was terrible - even it's location itself is excellent. 1, room small - very uncomfortable for two, you cannot even take your shoes off sitting on the bed as the wall doesn't allow it ... 2, there is...

I've just come back from London where I spent 4 nights at this horrible hotel. We had booked a triple standard room at a very cheap price, but we couldn't imagine what we were going to find. The room was the filthiest and most horrible place I've ever been. It was small, dirty, awful, ugly. There was a hole in...

The reviews scared us, but it was ok! This hotel is being renovated--the staff is really trying hard to fix it up. Our room was very clean, and the employees were always friendly and helpful. We had a room for 4 people--4 single beds (cots, really--not the most comfortable, but not terrible), small tv, and a tiny bathroom. The shower...

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.
