We mistakenly booked a day earlier and tried to rearrange the booking to still spend the same number of days booked but starting a day earlier. The request was declined and though there was a room available, the rate was too exorbitant, so we had no choice but to make alternative accommodation arrangements for that one night. Not their fault...

For a hotel that describes itself as luxury it is appalling, we only wish that we had read the poor reviews and not the top ones before booking. The poor reviews certainly sum this very tired property up with the staff and service not much further behind. We do not normally do reviews but after staying at the Cranley we...

I booked the Cranley through hoteltonight, so I knew I wasn't going to get an upgraded suite. The room was still pretty nice. I was in the basement (which I find is a popular thing for 3rd party bookings so beware of that). The room was a good size for a solo traveler, but may be too small for a...

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.
