The Pelham has to be one of my favorite hotels! From the staff to our rooms, the entire experience was wonderful. We reserved two rooms for eight nights (king room & double room). Both rooms were cozy and well appointed with comfortable space to sit or rest. Perhaps the best was our spacious closet and storage. There was ample room... More

We stayed here for 8 days in July. We rented two rooms with king size beds. Pros: great location across the street from the South Kensington station. Near the V&A Museum. Near local restaurants and interesting shops. The hotel is small and comfortable. The service is great. We felt welcome and comfortable. Cons: not necessarily a knock against this hotel,... More

We loved everything about this hotel. Very personal, very beautiful. Excellent, helpful staff. The rooms were great and surprisingly large (well, at least not small!) for a London hotel. Very intimate.

Marvelous small hotel close to the V&A. Urban neighborhood with a country inn feel. A new favorite of ours. The staff was extremely helpful in retrieving my cell phone from a cab. and the buffet breakfast was top flight.

I like to try new places in a great, ever changing city like London. Despite my professed love for the South Kensington area, I've never tried the Pelham Hotel, and this time, being there for several meetings in the Museums' area, I booked a room for three nights there. Family problems meant that Anna couldn't travel with me and we... More

Stayed for one night - and came round to loving the place. Hotel was booked via trip advisor at an excellent rate. Had a small room but it was beautifully furnished, all quite individual with everything that was needed. The bathroom was again small but well done, it had big white towels and the shower was a good pressure. Staff... More

Can't fault staff - very attentive, friendly and welcoming. Location is good (especially for finding a cab which can be tricky out of busy periods) but would question whether quality of rooms and facilities really relects "five star" in relative terms...

We were in London for 3 days and the Pelham provided exactly what we were looking for. Very attentive staff, rooms with lots of character and a great location (steps from South Kensington Station). For fellow American travelers expecting a large room that just isn't realistic in a location like this (unless you want to pay $500+ a night). What... 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.
