I booked this hotel for a two night stay while I was doing a course in London. I don't normally book a two star hotel but the pictures looked reasonable, so I booked a double room for two nights. I arrived quite late and checked in. I went up to my room and unlocked the door. I was shocked at... More

I guess you pay for what you get and it is London and this Hotel was typical. Very small rooms you can't swing a cat in with two people. Two people can't stand up together.Clean & well located. Nice little courtyard. Bathroom clean and modern. It is not really the hotel. I just can't understand how local councils allow rooms... More

It was one of the cheaper ones around at the time as the F1 etc was on the same weekend Receptionist was lovely however the staff at breakfast were awful.... More

Northerner here. On first impressions, we believed it would be a nice little stay. Wrong. Whenever they would clean our room, they would not lock the door. We mentioned this to the staff on the desk and it happened the next day. The breakfast was lacking - choices from ham (slabs of ham that you could probably grab some the... More

The hotel was clean and tidy and the room we had was a decent size although they did call it an executive room (I think this was because there was a small table and a chair in it). The breakfast was okay but there was no choice, it was just put on the table. The hotel staff were very friendly... More

The place is pretty easy to find from Earl's Court station and looked lovely from the outside. Inside was quite dark but was clean. The receptionist was nice and friendly and let us check in early. We had a single and a twin booked and got told we had been upgraded.... I'm glad we did as I dread to think... More

Pros: Location: A short 5 min walk to Earl's Court WiFi: Free WiFi available throughout Cons: Room: Room is way too small, but expected from a B&B. Bathroom: Very basic, but does the job. Price: For a B&B should cost a max of 55£ a night. I booked the room for 75£ a night.

Very disappointed with the room, too small and really bad view, outside bathroom was dirty and really from the 80s, no tea/coffee available in room. Shower had no stands to hold up. Paid £80 for the night. But left after couple of hours rest there. Will never recommend anyone. The only positive thing was the location was excellent. But the... More

I have read other good reviews about this place but I'm not even sure if they're about the same hotel. Our stay here started bad and only got worse. We arrived to check in more than half an hour after check in begins and were given our room key. We made our way up to our room to find that... 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.
