Fantastic family suite stay - one night Great access to nearby underground,museums and restaurants. Staff very helpful and attentive,whilst retaining a relaxed atmosphere. Can get very busy at times so prob worth researching what you'd like to book in good time to avoid disappointment at restaurants / afternoon tea,for example

Location, the best! Very nice technology perks, like they provide a cell phone with data for your use during your stay and whole room is digitally controlled. Very nice bathrooms and comfortable pillows too. Bedroom space was very tight but was nicely decorated. Just wish the room had a mirrored area where you could plug in to do hair as... More

My daughter recommended this hotel and we're glad she did. The hotel is in a lovely location. Walking distance for Knightsbridge, royal Albert hall and other attractions. All the staff were friendly and efficient. The room was small but beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. The best thing was the bed!! One if the most comfy beds we've ever slept in.... More

The hotel was absolutely delightful. Very convenient location with the South Kensington tube station only a black away as well as the Natural History Museum within a five minute walk. Great restaurants nearby, both sit down and to go, fun coffee shops and a great area to walk around and experience London. The hotel itself is fantastic. Very comfortable bed,... More

My stay was excellent, hotel is lovely and well located, easy to find. I was travelling for business, but definitely would've liked to stay longer. Good service. Didn't get the chance to try food and beverages. Place to recommend.

Convenient, quirky and with a bustling atmosphere. I have stayed here a few times now and I love the place as it brings me into the heart of S. Kensington, its a beautifully artistic hotel but busy with an international clientele with a cosmopolitan buzz. The lounge can get extremely busy with people meeting up, but the location id=s fabulous... More

Having stayed here before I was really disappointed by the size of my room! It was tiny with a large shower room that looked like a disabled toilet! The room was so small that I had to store one of my cases in the bathroom! There was hardly any hanging space and making a cuppa was very difficult!

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.
