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.

No bacon or scrambled eggs which I thought would be almost compulsory in Britain. Just 5 different packages of cereals, few breads, few slices of cheese and ham. Everything was empty all the time, the tables had dirty dishes cause there was only one waitress. No signs of what kind of the 3 juices were, just 3 cans of something. The breakfast was sooo poor.

A cosy and comfortable hotel which felt like a home from home! Kensington House Hotel is in a brilliant location and its staff are all pleasant and polite. The continental breakfast provided was delicious and although the room I stayed in had a few flaws (dust on the ceiling fan and a broken slat on the blind), it was cosy and clean. I will definitely return in the future!

This hotel is in a perfect location just outside central London - the area is very upmarket and quiet with a handy array of shops nearby - room was smallish and the bathroom needed updated - rental bikes are nearby also which we took full advantage of to travel into and out of London. It’s close to Kensington palace and Hyde park also. Bed was comfy and of a reasonable size. Room was equipped with a kettle and cups for tea/coffee and also a bath robe. We found the staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast was above average but not a massive selection. Great price for the area and time of year we visited London.

I was singing some concerts at Royal Albert Hall on 23rd and 24th December, and had to make a last minute booking on 22nd for the next day through Booking.com. They had one single room available at £51 and it's about 10 mins walk from the hall so ideal for me. I would guess it's a 2/3☆ hotel, so my rating is relative to that, and the price I paid for a room with included breakfast at such short notice in a very expensive area of London I think was great value. - I arrived at about 10:15pm after the last concert that day; there was an issue with the payment from Booking.com (they have a virtual credit card thing so they charge you the money but the hotel doesn't get it immediately), but the guy at reception was understanding and didn't charge me there and then (he said he was told to do that because as far as they were concerned, I hadn't paid yet). He said he was sure it would be fine, and the next morning it had been sorted out. - The bed was comfy, and the bathroom was basic but fully functional. - There were two plug sockets on the wall opposite the bed (and a third under the bedside table but it was broken). - The room was nice and quiet during the night (I even had the window open and slept very well). - Hot water was quick to come through in the shower. - There were no cooked options at breakfast but the spread was decent considering the size of the restaurant.

I stayed at Kensington House Hotel as a solo traveller on two separate occasions in the past month. On the first occasion, I was warmly welcomed by the reception staff, early in the morning after a 17-hour flight. To my surprise, my room was already available and I was able to check in then and there! The simple continental breakfast was great every morning and had a good array of options! My room was serviced each day and it was always impeccable when I returned in the afternoons. Some of the furnishings were dated or a little damaged, but I really did not mind as the room itself, while small as a single sized room, was comfortable and cosy. The location of Kensington was great as the hotel is just across the road from Kensington Palace and Gardens, it's a short walk to Hyde Park from there and the Kensington High Street Tube station is about 700m away! Additionally, the price of the hotel in this location was great! I'd absolutely recommend Kensington House Hotel to anyone wanting to stay just outside of central London in a comfortable and welcoming space!
