My family came to London to visit me and, since they were looking for a comfortable and reasonable priced hotel, my father came across with this hotel. It was a pleasant surprise, because the service is outstanding in general. The location is superb (the tube is across the street) and the area is very nice. Now, something additional: I had... More

I have stayed here many times when I visit London as it is a great location in terms of restaurants, transport and other amenities. The hotel is very modern and the rooms are nicely set out with plenty of room and the usual tea/coffee/water. It has a lovely garden at the back to relax or just enjoy a drink from... More

The hotel is located minutes from the underground tube station Gloucester. Besides, two supermarkets Waitrose( across the road from hotel) and Sainsbury( about 8 minutes away) makes this hotel very convenient for its guests. There are also many restaurants within walking distance. There are a few museums like Natural History Museum about 10 minutes from the hotel. The beds in... More

Booked this hotel due to the close vicinity to the Royal Albert Hall. I have to say the service was second to none. Nothing too much trouble for the staff. We booked an executive room with complimentary arrival drinks and a drinks lounge. Well worth the extra and the room was really nice, ultra clean and modern, super king bed... More

We spent 2 nights at the Crowne Plaza Kensington, located in a lovely area of embassies, museums and parks. Only one block from the Gloucester Road underground and with small cafes nearby for breakfast and lunch, we felt this is a good location for the traveler using the tube to get around the city. The staff was attentive and the... 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.
