The hotel was very clean and well decorated. Our room was well presented and had a very nice large bathroom with bath and shower. The room however was located at the back of the hotel and when you opened the curtains you were presented with railway lines. When trains went by, which was very frequently, you could hear them although...

All things considered this hotel is excellent value for money. Great mid week rate including breakfast. Check in was simple and we were given an available room early which was great. The rooms were basic, perhaps a little old but clean and comfortable. Some things others may find irritable; the walls were by no means sound proof and if you...

If I could give this hotel a zero I would. I rated it (also poorly) 2 years ago after staying here for a work trip. This year we considered taking a business group of 60 guests back here ONLY on the basis that the hotel assured us in a contract we would receive the renovated rooms as advertised on their...

We spent three nights here and for value for money we were very impressed. Check in was pleasant, the room was larger than I've ever experienced in London. Thought the breakfast was impressive with a very wide range of choice. Location was excellent, Very well situated for the tube (if not on strike), taxi rank right outside and many buses...

Took advantage of a special offer. Excellent value! Room a bit small, but more than adequate and very quiet. Bed one of best we've had in a hotel. Well worth it! Staff helpful and although bar prices on the high side, overall still great value.

Staying in South Kensington

Neighbourhood 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.
