Intimate hotel with superb service, lovely (albeit small) rooms, and super food (breakfast). The staff, largely Eastern European, are delightful and helpful. Most of all the place is a wonderful value given its combination of location, price, service, and quality. The bathrooms are totally updated and the water pressure is unusual for London. The best part was the food and... More

Close to both South Kensington & Chelsea, this hotel is a little gem! The staff were superb - nothing was too much trouble. The rooms are well appointed and very comfortable. Lots of little extras that made it feel personal. I'd highly recommend it.

This is a nice little boutique hotel. My single room was small, and the decor is nice, but does not make any statement. This Hotel is really all about the location... it's close to the underground, Kings Road, Harrods, and a bunch of restaurants.

I stayed here for one night between flights and the hotel was excellent. It's on a quiet street, close to transportation, shops, and lots of great little restaurants and pubs. Highly recommend if you're looking for a quiet place to stay in a beautiful neighborhood.

Close to everything, clean, friendly service, quiet at night. Breakfast in the AM was delicious. I would never stay anywhere else and have been coming here for more than a decade. Particularly good for visiting V&A Museum.

Although it was only a one-night stay at the hotel, it was a memorable experience with a spacious, rooftop room with a very comfortable bed and great views from the large attached veranda. Highly recommended.

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
Wealth courses through The King's Road, Chelsea's upmarket artery of West London life packed with shops, eateries and glitzy nightspots. For people-watching at its best and luxury retail therapy that's largely unrivalled, this area cannot be missed. But if this showy street starts to overwhelm or a moment of price tag shock sends you reeling, a quick detour down pretty much any of many King's Road veins will reveal a quieter side of Chelsea. Here the stately Royal Hospital hosts its world-famous flower show, and the Thames rolls along at a lazy pace, with leafy Battersea Park and its Peace Pagoda beckoning from across the river.
