Stayed 2 nights. Great location about a 10 minute stroll from the tube station. Lots of shops and eating places nearby. Staff friendly and helpful. Room small but it was clean and tidy. Bed made and towels changed the next day. Continental breakfast was good but try and eat early as I think some food runs out. The first morning... More

The hotel is very reasonable in price, for low budget travel while want a good standard, this is the pick. The reception staff are very helpful and friendly. However the internet WIFI is slow. The location is very good central and yet quiet. There are many food places around and shopping venues as well. Public transportation is 50 meters away.

Key points are - The hotel was smart, modern and well maintained. Staff were friendly and attentive. Bedrooms were airy, clean with very comfy beds. Breakfast included... More

I stayed for 5 nights in a single room whilst exploring London. It was in an ideal location, a short walk to Hyde Park and about 10 minutes to a tube station. There was a Santander-cycle dock just round the corner. I had two late nights and felt safe walking back from the tube on my own to the hotel.... More

Chose this place randomly based on reviews here. It is a quaint neighborhood, good food around and very short walk to Kensington Palace and gardens. The tube is a 10 min walk. The rooms are small and dated and the electric plugs not readily accessible. Unfortunately there is a great deal of construction and starting at 7:30 am we hear... 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.
