Stayed for 5 days at this hotel in mid July. The location of the hotel is great, within walking distance to Subway, pubs, restaurants and stores. The exterior of the hotel is pretty dreadful, and looks very outdated. The interior is somewhat better. The staff was very helpful with inquiries during our stay. The rooms themselves sadly feel a bit... More

As others have said, this establishment is in an ideal location. The complimentary breakfast was better than expected. Everything was clean and the service adequate. My biggest qualm was the tiny size of our room!

I was greeted by very friendly receptionists and my room was clean and immaculate. Reception phoned after 45 mins in room to check that everything was to my satisfaction. Hotel is very centrally located.

Serviceminded staff. Good breakfast. Good location. Underground & buses within short walking distance. Hyde Park & Kensington Park & Hop on & Hop off-buses. Only negative: Never enough water to flush toilets. 3 adults in one room made toilet-visits quite thrilling.

The hotel is pleasant and very well positioned to visit London. It is near the tube and you can walk to many local attractions. The staff are very helpful and I am always warmly welcomed by Olga - a real ambassador for the hotel

Room 765. Nice room. Clean & tidy. WiFi is 10.00 per day so I will try to get free WiFi somewhere else. Very near the High Street Tube station. Tomorrow we will have ½ day of touring, then Dinner and theater. The following day we had a full day to walk around on our own. Nice and close to Kensington... More

I held a conference at Tara Hotel for 130 delegates this month. The service which was provided was excellent, amazing customer service provided by Patrick, Sasha and the rest of the team on a day was second to none. I'd definitely recommend this Hotel for conferences/meetings.

All amenities were available..room and en suite spotless..as was the entire hotel. The location was perfect from which to access major sites...and yet just tucked out of the main thoroughfare making it v. relaxed. Loved The Artist's corner...for Happy Hour and the superb coffees served by Miguela in the lobby.

Great customer service from the moment we checked in. The room was basic but clean providing all the usual amenities. All the staff couldn't have been more helpful,everyone seemed to have a smile on their face.The breakfasts were amazing and of great quality offering plenty of options. The location was great for us as it was close to the underground... 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.
