Very friendly staff at check in. Luckily we travelled light as lift was very small. Room was small but was pristine and bathroom was roomy with a nice deep bath. Breakfast was plentiful and served rather than self-service, which rounded off a perfect stay.

I found the hotel about Tripadvisor and it was an excellent decision. We will come again for sure. We had an event at the Royal Albert Hall and the hotel was perfect to walk to the hall.The reception was very friendly.

Super hotel, professional and courteous staff - nothing is a bother. Great location for walking and using underground (only a couple of minutes walk to South Kensington tube station). Would definitely recommend to everyone, although imagine rooms would be a little snug if travelling as a family.

The hotel suited our needs as we visited with my spouse's uncle who is a Chelsea Pensioner. Its Chelsea location put us close to local points of interest as well, Royal Chelsea Hospital, Harrod's, Victoria and Albert Museum, and fine dining.

Very well located hotel, next to south kensington. Clean, convenient, friendly staff. Rooms are a bit small, other than that it is a good option for exploring the city. A bit pricey for the quality, but compensated in location

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.
