My sister & I stayed here for the August Bank Holiday weekend in Pembridge Gardens off Bayswater Road in Notting Hill. The price for the 3 days sounded too good to be true especially with the carnival happening. On first arrival, the area looked so beautiful. As first timers to London, we were impressed. We checked in & the guy... More

Have stayed on consecutive weeks in different parts of Imperials accommodation, Clean, quiet, perfect. Breakfast is huge. 100 yards from Albert Hall for £51 B+B per night, unbeatable. Check in swift and efficient. Rooms quite warm but a fan is provided and was effective. Have stayed in much more expensive box room rip offs

Staff were welcoming and helpful.The room was pleasant with desk and kettle and a good sized bathroom. The breakfast was good and the use of the pool and other facilities was a bonus. There wasn't a TV but I didn't miss this. Convenient location, particularly for three museums, the Royal Albert Hall and Hyde Park, and near to public transport.... More

This accommodation is not to be confused with a hotel! Small rooms, shocking bed, and canteen breakfast. I have backpacked around the globe and had much more comfort for a fraction of the price than I experienced here! When you spend over 120 pounds on a room expect a reasonable degree of comfort, a bed you can sleep in and... More

There is no tv, refrigerator or ar conditioning into the room, but the room is still nice. The internet does not work very well. The location is good. There are restaurants and museums very close and also the underground station.

Good Location / Room: Given the price one pays to be staying in South Kensington, Princes Gardens is a pretty reasonable deal. Our twin room, which we stayed for 22 nights was small yet cosy. It has average facilities. Do note the walls are somewhat thin and you can hear your neighbors if they get a little noisy. But this... More

I don't quite get all the complaints here. I've stayed in real four star hotels that are worse than this place and cost much more. Yes, the bed was too hard for my taste and the service at the reception depends heavily on who happens to be there (the direction given to my room for example could have been much... More

This is student accommodation used in the summer for visitors. I had a single room with private bathroom for £50 per night including breakfast. This is fantastic value for money being so central...close to South Kensington, Kensington Gardens/Hyde Park, Royal Albert Hall, the V and A and Science Museums. The room, although small, has the facilities that you need for... More

Stayed here on a busy Saturday night. Excellent value for accomodation in this area of London. It is basic as would be expected but is clean and comfortable. Staff on reception very friendly and helpful, breakfast served in the canteen was great with a good selection of food varying from a full fry up to the heathier fruit and yoghurt... More

Great place to stay in the summer when the students are not there as it is walking distance from all the sights. Lovely and clean and a comfortable bed for the night. Great breakfast - plenty of it! Only thing to be aware of is that check in is not before 2pm and no way are you going to be... More

Staying in Knightsbridge

Neighborhood Profile
Knightsbridge
When millions of tourists want to shop 'til they drop, they do it along Brompton Road and its boutique-lined tributaries, including the world-renowned Harrods. And when millionaires want to flaunt what they've already got, many of them find Knightsbridge and Belgravia the perfect place to do so, often behind stately mansion walls or down quiet private mews. Delve beyond the ultra-luxe exterior and you'll find some of this city's cosiest pubs, quiet gardens, and all sorts of indie retailers and enterprises worth a short exercise in spontaneous window shopping. For those looking to take a break from shopping, Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, and some of the city's most popular museums are nearby.
