We got a discounted rate as my GF had a special rate with work. It was still too much. But then again it is London! Everyone has said how small the room was, I've been in smaller but not by much. The toilet/shower was SMALL. But it worked and the shower was quite comfortable so no complaints there. The bed... More

I stayed at Kensington Rooms hotel for 2 nights in June 2010. It has a superb location, easy to get to Oxford str in 15 min by bus and the nearest tube station is just 4 min on foot, however for a business traveler like myself I must admit that the room I had was just disappointing. Very small room,... More

We stayed 1 night at this hotel whilst attending a concert at the Royal Albert Hall. The tickets for the latter had cost a lot so I searched for a reasonably priced 3 star hotel nearby for approx £125.00. Our superior double room (room 200) cost £123 through a booking agent, and it was extremely large 25 ft. x 25... More

Rooms are tiny and old fashioned, shower was minuscule and bath room VERY basic. TV didn't work very well and all the rooms have simple windows, which means traffic noises from very lively Cromwell Rd surround you. Bring your ear plugs. Breakfast was adequate, service friendly and the reception and bar area tidy. Good location adjacent to the Piccadilly service... More

My name is Betty Talley. I stayed in your establishment from May 25 to May 29. During that time the toilet was plugged, the sink didn't drain properly, there was no heat to my room and the breakfasts were disappointing, especially toward the end of our stay when the choices became more scarce. The night of the 27th I brought... More

Did a lot of research before booking a hotel in London and knew that rooms in London are expensive for very small rooms. I even saw a picture of how tiny the bathroom at this hotel is but was still shocked and distressed upon check-in. Tiny elevator slowly took us to our floor where we had to struggle with 4... More

The room was the smallest room I have ever stayed in, I thought that there was no bathroom until I looked in what I thought was a cupboard to find everything crammed into the tiniest space. The room was also overlooking Cromwell road and the noise was constant all night. There were no curtains only wooden blinds, if it was... More

Stayed here with a colleague on business. The single room was tiny (to be expected in London though) All I can say is that I did not want to have a shower here, the bathroom was awful. The bed was pretty comfy but this room overlooked Cromwell road and the sash window had no double glazing, so all I can... More

The best thing about the room was the big and comfortable double bed! Unfourtunately it took most of the space in the room leaving no space to pass another person without climbing over the bed. The view was to the back, quiet but ugly, wooden blind was broken and the tv showed mostly blizzard. The bathroom tiles looked new but... 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.
