We stayed here for one night in May for a Royal Albert Hall double header. We had a twin room with two huge bed in - one had a very hard mattress, the other a nice soft one which suited both me and my friend as she likes hard beds. Bed linen was clean, carpet and bathroom was clean although... More

I booked in advance for this room. Myself and my friend were to perform in a show in Chelsea so we thought we would book somewhere within a 30 minute walking distance. We came across Kensington Rooms on Booking.com we clicked through pictures of the rooms and what not and decided that we quite fancied this place so we would... More

When I booked this hotel I advised that we needed a room that was easily accessible for my wife who has a disability. We had a room on the 4th floor, took the lift no problem but then it was up a flight of stairs, through the corridor and then down a flight of stairs before we reached the room.... More

My wife booked this hotel on the basis that it was central and inexpensive. Didn't look at reviews, but wish we had. Room is tiny, threadbare carpets, peeling plasterwork and paintwork, mattress was ancient, bathroom was hobbit sized, old single glazed noise so could hear all the traffic noise outside (even on the 4th floor). Not much more to say... More

The staff was rude and discriminatory. The room they gave us was dirty. The bathroom had vomit on walls. The room did not have any outside light. The entire experience was so bad... I will never ever go anywhere this place. Somebody should shut down the place. It is an health hazard.

Stayed in this hotel for 2 nights for business. Booked last minute and in a rush. Between travelling and working for 18 hours, all I wanted was to get some rest. As I travel to London on a weekly basis, I'm a regular hotel stayer, but most definitely will not be anywhere near this joint ever again! Arrived at 9pm,... More

So we asked to move to another room, and they were moved at 4rth floor if i am not wrong. Well this floor was rubbish. Very dirty all around, works in... More

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.
