Positive points : Good location in nice area, good value for London, spacious room, the receptionist was friendly.
Negative points : No soundproofing, no insulation, small mobile heating failing, humidity in the bathroom.
Great location but totally grotty place. Rooms shabby. Bathrooms OK but no hot water in shower on one night. Breakfast adequate. Won't be visiting here again. YHA hostels better and much nicer feel. This place is depressing.
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.
