My sister and I stayed for 6 nights at Aster House in July. Nice townhome with clean, adequate rooms; air conditioning; flat screen TV with a good choice of channels; great location;quiet street; just a few minutes walk from South Kensington tube (3 lines in one location). Breakfast was good. All the basics were provided. Polite, friendly staff.
We arrived a litle earlier than expected, but Leoni let us in -- the front door is locked at all times. (You get in with your key.) She gave us a map of the area, suggested some restaurants for lunch, and assured us our luggage would be in our rooms when we returned. Everything worked out well.
The hotel is south of Kensington/Hyde Park area; a few blocks from the Victoria and Albert Museum ( a must see). For first time visitors to London, the location of the townhome was perfect. Out of the hustle and bustle but not so far that you felt you were taking a huge amount of your time commuting to see the sites. South Kensington tube also has the Piccadilly (blue) line that takes you to and from Heathrow.
If we return to London another time, we would definitely book the Aster House again.
