Used this hotel for a 3 day city break. The hotel was excellent value for London. Its a big 1960's building , we were on the 11th floor, so couldnt really walk downstairs! However the view , the room and the breakfast wer all excellent. Near to the tube and the sites , Very Good indeed i would use again.

This is a nice hotel. Rooms reasonably spacious though need updating as do the bathrooms. We got a deal thru secret escapes so only paid £99 for 2 people including breakfast and it does the job. Great location just 5in walk from tube and stands just behind the high street so no traffic noise. Good., hearty all u can eat...

My advice to business travellers is to stay clear of the Copthorne Tara especially if you need internet connection. The Copthorne Tara charges a ridiculous amount for a wifi connection that is INCREDIBLY slow. I have experienced substantially better connection in 2 star hotels and in countries that may be classed as 3rd world. I have been informed that this...

I stay regularly, the hotel is brilliantly located, the staff are fantastic and the welcome is friendly. I especially want to mention Sonia on reception who seems to be able to organise and sort any issues effortlessly. I would recommend the hotel whatever the reason for your London stay.

We booked the hotel for a Four day stay in London. Location was great, but the hotel was looking alot different than the pictures on the booking site. In a plain simple word: old. Service was good, but in desperate need of new furniture in the rooms and a outside "make over"

I recently stayed here to attend a business conference. The hotel is great value and most conveniently located behind High Street Kensington off Wrights Lane. Perfect for shopping, restaurants, pubs, Kensington Palace & gardens and the Albert Hall within a reasonable walking distance. The rooms are clean, tidy and of good size with all the usual provisions including Tv, wifi,...

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.
