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...

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...

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...

Very satisfied of this.The hotel is...

A very small but perfectly functional room, with an equally small and functional en suite bathroom (shower, sink, toilet). Ours was a room looking towards the back of the building and a wonderfully tall tree where birds were singing (you may not like this in early mornings though); rooms are so close together that there probably should have been noise...

OK, if you are looking for a modern and luxurious hotel, then this is not the one for you. It is old fashioned and not in the best of conditions. The breakfast was a little odd - we were given orange juice and a yoghurt and offered a boiled egg and ham. We were also given some cornflakes and lots...

My son and I stayed there for 4 days. By far the smallest room ever. Comfortable linen, Wi-Fi non existent, very noisy due to very thin walls! The location is good, next to Earls Court station. The cleaning and kitchen staff was very efficient and friendly. The breakfast is a typical low budget continental but this is expected.

A B & B, would provide you with much better service..... The breakfast was awful, the dining room floor was disgusting; the bed was as hard as a rock, the bathroom and accessories provided were poor too..... Avoid this place!!

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.
