Location is perfect! The street is beautiful, quiet and it takes you 15 mins to get to Big Ben, Piccadilly Circus and other places of visits which you will definitely want to see. Lots of cozy pubs, shops. The bedroom was super tiny but there was everything in it. There is a lovely bar in the hotel where you can...

Conveniently placed for Kensington and Chelsea. Pleasant room and comfortable but the highlight of our stay has to be the staff, all were welcoming and 'pleasantly casual' whilst extremely professional. Breakfasts were individually cooked to order rather than pre-prepared which was a nice surprise. I'm sure that we will be back.

Small but cozy. Convenient location. 5 minutes walk to South Kensington station. 20 minutes walk & 5 minutes taxi ride to Harrods. Room and elevator can be bigger, not much room with a big luggage. Staff at the breakfast are friendly. Efficient and fast check in and check out.

We needed to stay in the area and thought it was worth a try and were not disappointed, Spotlessly clean and very welcoming staff and atmosphere.

This hotel's location near the South Kensington Tube Station, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Natural History Museum and Hyde Park were very appealing to us. Banks and other services were readily available. In addition we found many good restaurants in the area. We enjoyed Muriel's Restaurant and Gail's Bakery.

Staying in Chelsea

Neighbourhood Profile
Chelsea
Wealth courses through The King's Road, Chelsea's upmarket artery of West London life packed with shops, eateries and glitzy nightspots. For people-watching at its best and luxury retail therapy that's largely unrivalled, this area cannot be missed. But if this showy street starts to overwhelm or a moment of price tag shock sends you reeling, a quick detour down pretty much any of many King's Road veins will reveal a quieter side of Chelsea. Here the stately Royal Hospital hosts its world-famous flower show, and the Thames rolls along at a lazy pace, with leafy Battersea Park and its Peace Pagoda beckoning from across the river.
