We recently stayed here for 3 nights while visiting London for a short break. This hotel for us was perfect. It's in a really good location only 5 minutes walk from Gloucester Road station with links to rest of London and also walking distance to Natural History museum. We were in a basic double room but was more than adequate... More

Went to London in May and stayed here. The rooms are small which is the only drawback. Very modern, universal electrical adaptors and very clean. Superb staff and located in the beautiful Kensington borough. Tube stop less than a block away. Incredible breakfast buffet. Highly recommend.

As a priority member I expected a better experience. Nothing too wrong with the hotel itself, clean modern and in a convenient location near to Gloucester Road tube station, but issues booking in caused us concerns I had reserved two rooms, one for my wife and I and another for our female friend as we were all going to the...

Whilst attending a two day event at this hotel I stayed here for one night this week. I have recently spent quite a few nights at Holiday Inns in and around London and expected much more than I did this time round. The hotel is conveniently situated to Gatwick Airport without the on-going noise of planes landing and taking off.... More

The hotel is well located for this area and has a underground parking onsite that was priced competitively for London. There is also some on street parking (if you are lucky) and this was free on a Sunday when we stayed, so you could minimise the paid for if you wanted to. The room is Holiday Inn, not large, but...

Room had the usual amenities for a 4 star hotel and bed and pillows very comfortable and clean. Breakfast had a full range of items, quality and staff very helpful and attentive.... More

We recently spent 4 lovely nights in the magical city. We did pay the extra for the executive lounge & included buffet breakfast & it was worth it! Our room was not huge, but functional.

I stayed at this hotel when attending a Prom concert. The room was clean and comfortable and we had a good view of the city from the 9th floor. Walking to and from the Albert Hall was quick and easy. The buffet breakfast was huge with lots of choice.

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.
