I have stayed, on and off, at The Pelham since it was first established some twenty five years ago as a Boutique Hotel. It has over the years maintained its high level of quality and service originally managed by Tim and Kit Kemp, founders of the truly unique Firmdale Group. During this time it has changed hands a couple of... More

A wonderful nine night stay at the Pelham! We loved the convenient location (directly across the street from the South Kensington Tube Station), the atmosphere, decoration and friendly, helpful staff, our quiet corner room (Red Room), the service, the peace and lack of the normal hustle and bustle of London hotels. The Pelham was a warm and welcoming place to... More

The location in South Kensington near the Natural History and V&A museums is a good starting point for a lot of sightseeing activities, but also regarding restaurants, coffee shops, bakeries, and shops. The room was not that big, but in my experience this is standard in London, even at this rate. It was clean, and cosy. Impeccable service overall, I... More

my room was clean, beautifully designed and comfortable. Best location, literally 10 minutes walk to Harrods, and 1 minutes walk to South Ken station and Starbucks. Their service is very good, its like the perfect boutique hotel.

Rooms were very nice. Clean, quiet and a cool charm. Excellent hotel for business meetings. Lobby is nice with many areas to meet friends. Room are not huge but comfortable. Actually this hotel seems like a small country inn yet it is in the middle of London. Staff is nice, check in and out easy.

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.
