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.

Hi, we had a garden room with a double bed ( possibly Queen size ) and it was great to sit out on a sunny day but weren`t concerned about security although potentially someone with serious intent would have to climb over the garden wall at the back of the hotel beer garden and access that through the hotel lobby - enjoy !

Any bed bugs at this hotel?
Hotel was very clean and no sign of any bugs or insects. Room was compact but well equipped and had all we needed for our 4 day stay.
