Booked a room on the day through Laterooms - rate was £155 no brekko. There were cheaper hotels but the rooms here looked nice and spacious and so we went for this. One of the deciding factors was also that this offered parking and we needed parking for a van overnight. Arrived and was shocked that we were given a...

There are many complaints about room size fr other reviews however we found it to be sufficient. Location is excellent with lots of dining options.

Very friendly front desk staff, comfortable bedroom with excellent bed and not too far from Gloucester Road tube or Boris Bikes made for a wonderful stay. It is a smaller hotel than Millenium or Holiday Inn so more personalised service for less....!

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.

“The room was adequate for our stay with tea & coffee making facility plus a fridge. Hotel is ideally situated for the museums & shops. The downside was the car parking not enough at the hotel & roadside parking was expensive.”
