This is the second time I have stayed at the Copthorne hotel. It hasn't changed in over ten years. I had a much better view the last time, one of the London skyline with the Faberge building in the distance. This time, sadly, it was of the rail lines. Not to worry, I still enjoyed and appreciated the location since... More

This hotel is situated almost next to Hyde Park close to the Royal Albert Hall. The outside looks dated, the interior is a better but still out of date. All is in good order and decent value for money. My view from the 10th floor was nice, with the Shard and the London Eye visible in the distance.

Where do I start? Checked in about 4, confusion with the booking, told the room had twin beds. I said I had booked a double room, the receptionist went away for a couple of minutes, handed over the keys so we thought she had sorted it out. Got to the room, single beds, no time to complain and get another... More

Checked into the hotel and were supposed to have a double bed....were given twin beds. The Receptionist fixed the problem and we got a lovely room with a king bed. Thank- you Mint for doing this for us. The hotel is lovely...very clean and had everything necessary for a pleasant stay. Would recommend without hesitation. The full breakfast was delicious...

Spent 2 night here while spending the weekend in London. Location is excellent,5 minute walk from High Street Kensington Underground station. Convenient to Chelsea and Hyde Park. Accommodation average, room basic, clean and a good size, but no luxuries. Didn't eat at the hotel, very big and impersonal, but suitable if you just want somewhere to sleep with good access...

This hotel is perfect location for central London. Just 2 mins walk from High Street Kensington. The room was great size. It may look basic from the Outside but if your staying in London then this is top notch. Excellent customer service from JIK at front desk.

It was very convenient because of easy access to tube. Reception corresponded professionally. Bedding was perfect for me hence I was able to sleep well after super busy schedule. And porridge was kind for my stomach in the morning because I had heavy dinner every day. Only weak wifi signal must be improved. Then I would be able to strongly... More

Just had a excellent stay in the Copthorne Tara for three nights and very much enjoyed staying there. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful on arrival and the staff in the Brasserie Bar dinner were as well.

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.
