This place is good for a short stay in London. Rooms are really tiny, but they’re pretty clean, and the bathrooms are modern. Hotel is 2min walk from Gloucester Rd tube and loads of restaurants, bars and shops. Inexpensive and in a good location.

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

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
