A quaint hotel located at Kensington. The room runs small but it does not really matter as most London hotels are. It is clean and has al the amenities that travelling girls need. It is located right across Gloucester Road underground station (runs Circle, District and Piccadilly lines). It has a bus stop right outside their doorstep so it is...

Booked last minute through hotwire just for a night. Nothing bad to say about the property. Check in was fast and the staff was friendly. I travel a lot and the cleanliness of the room was second to none. One block off of Bayswater so its near the tube and Hyde Park. A great little property that I'll consider for...

Good location for people wanting to visit the National History museum, Harrods and the V and A as they are just a few minutes down the road. Good sound proofing on the room but the AC unit in the actual room was very noisy. Very small rooms but that is standard in London, clean and the breakfast buffet had an...

The Cromwell is near a tube stop (5 min walk), is clean, has a nice staff, has a small bar, and is near a few good restaurants and pubs. Rooms are generally small but not out of line with other London hotels. I would recommend this for couples or single travelers.

This hotel is situated perfectly for the museums of London. It is very close to a tube station and lies on the Piccadilly Line so easy to get to theatre district and Covent Garden.

Although I have stayed here before it is really a hotel for short business stays when you are likely to be spending most of your time in meetings and looking for somewhere to sleep at night. The rooms are fairly basic with sometimes small and awkward shaped bathrooms. I had a garden room (which had a large decked outside area...

This has always been our choice of stay in London for the location and the clean rooms. It isn't as big as some of the other hotels along this road but the beds are comfortable, bathrooms ver clean and the staff are helpful enough.

The reception staff were polite but abrupt and not at all welcoming. The room was in the basement, was very small and claustrophobic. The bathroom was so small that if you bent down, you would burn yourself on the radiator. However, everywhere was clean, the beds comfortable and it was good to have a kettle for making tea/coffee/chocolate. It was...

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.
