We just spent five nights here with friends, and all agreed it is a great choice. Right across from the SoKen tube station, plenty of coffee shops and restaurants, near the V&A Museum, Royal Albert Hall and Hyde Park. Staff was very friendly. Missed our turn down service two nights and didn't get to cleaning the room until 4:00 one... More

Have stayed here for years. Great location, small hotel, sitting rooms really make you feel at home. Concierge is super knowledgeable and very helpful. Would recommend rooms off the first floor. Be aware elevator is very small and the beautiful staircases are a wonderful option to that!

This hotel isn't cheap but it sets a good standard. Authentic, quality feel with friendly and helpful staff. Radio playing background mood music when you arrive in your room each evening.......and zero leaflets and instructions you get so much of in other hotels. Nice decor, very clean and well maintained. The frontage was obscured by scaffolding when we stayed but... More

Lovely hotel in a fabulous location. Excellent service and charming rooms. Our room was very airy and the bedding entirely comfortable. Great restaurants surround the hotel. Very convenient to the tube (across the street), Victoria and Albert and Natural History Museum, Hyde Park, Harrods, and high end shopping. Highly recommend this hotel.

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.
