Well located for Earl's Court Underground and therefore all of the city. Cosmopolitan area, wide choice to eat around there. The hotel is clean, simple no frills, but helpful staff and emphasize clean. Simple breakfast, the front desk is manned 24/7. What more do you tourists need.

The rooms not very big, very basic, not tea or coffee in room, had to pay extra for parking, breakfast was definitely not continental. You didn't get a choice of cereal, and you got hard boiled cold egg, processed cheese slide, processed half slice of ham, no choice of yogurt just what you were given and no croissants or alternative...

The best thing about this hotel was the location; a six minute walk from Earls Court tube station and a fifteen minute walk from the Natural History Museum, with a fairly good choice of restaurants within walking distance. The hotel is located on a busy road, but we couldn't hear any traffic noises from our room at the back of... More

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

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

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.
