I knew check in was 13;30hrs but when I arrived early 11;00hrs, they wouldn't let me leave my bags in storage so walked around London for 2.5 hours with my bags. When I did check in and when to my room, there was someone already asleep in the bed, so I had to get a new room. The decor is...

We stayed for one night while seeing a show. Our room was miniscule, and was right next to the railway line - trains ran most of the night. The shower was filthy, the handle fell off the toilet every time you flushed it, the bed was extremely uncomfortable, and there was no bedside light (although to be fair, the room...

Do not book this Hotel through any sites that require you to give them your credit card details.Overcharging, not refunding money.( I believe I am not the first complaint) So if you are fronting up with cash all good. Shame because it was a good location and the price for what you got was what you would expect.

The only one advantage of this hotel, is that it is in downtown, and only 2mns walk to the tube, where I could catch the metro to go directly to the airport the next day. My room was smaller than Harry potter's one under the stairs!! I couldn't even open my door completely, since the bed was right behind. My...

blood stained blanket covered by towels, small dirty room with broken window, waiters that move your stuff in the bedroom and close your luggage, not free wifi, expensive luggage store (2 pounds/bag until 6pm), breakfast with self made toast and corflakes, sink with two taps (one too cold, the other too hot) and the celestial sound of the tube from...

What was good about this place? A friendly welcome, a fairly comfortable bed, and a generous supply of tablets of soap. What was bad? Where do I begin? The noise of the underground trains (running above ground) just behind the hotel is very intrusive, but I could live with that (see my recent review of a nearby hotel on the...

The place was squalid, the toilet smelled of piss and there was mould on the ceiling. Apart from that is was fine. We booked the room for the whole week, we couldn't stay due to the smell and mould and the alternative rooms offered were just as appalling.

Myself and my partner stayed here early August 2016. If I'm honest I was dreading staying here because of all the poor reviews, but I was pleasantly surprised. The decor is dated, carpets a bit dusty but the bathroom and the bed was clean and useable, which is all I cared about. We only stayed for one night, and the...

It's the worst "hotel" I ve ever seen in my life, and I think it doesn't deserve to be named Hotel!! 😠😠 no Reception, very small rooms, very poor breakfast, no shampoo (only the first night), paid internet (3£/24hours) and it's very slow. I had a room near the stairs, so I can hear anyone passing, and the window near...

Don't get me wrong, it's cheap. BUT the room was small and terrible, the bathroom was horrible, the staff were rude and our room was right next to the train line. 2 stars because of how cheap it was but it's really not good at all. Only stay here if you are looking for value and NOTHING else.

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 street is not busy, so if there are rooms at the front you will not be so disturbed by the noise of trains.”

“You should compare the difference in reviews in Booking.com and this one, almost fraudulent.”
  • As much mould as you could ever want

“Judging by other reviews you might want to request a room facing the street rather than the tube tracks, and at this price I wouldn't skimp on a private bathroom either.”
