The Crowne Plaza is a real treat! Although centrally located it is a quite little haven of peace and pampering. Rooms are clean and attention to detail perfect. The breakfast was delicious but its the staff who deserve the real credit. Friendly, approachable and so keen to please. Will definately return.

The location of this hotel is just a block from the Gloucester Road tube station which is on 3 lines including the line to Heathrow airport. The room was clean and staff friendly and helpful. There are coffee shops, pubs and stores close by and the neighborhood is good.

We liked the hotel very much! We will be here next time we travel to London. Good service from nice people. Nice garden to relax after a long day out. Quiet neighborhood, but all we needed nearby with shops, cafe and restaurants.

My family and I visited London for a week in April. Unlike many of our other vacations, we did not spend much time in the hotel - we were pretty much out all day - so we did not have meals or much leisure time at the hotel. Given that, I found the hotel to be clean, the staff to...

Just across from the underground. We could get to any main London landmark within 25 minutes without changing lines. The night life around the hotel is vivid yet quiet. Restaurants and bars within a couple minutes walk. The staff in the hotel was very kind and ready to help out anyone with questions or concerns. The bed was super comfortable...

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.

“We chose a double delux garden room, which was at the rear so quiet, light and airy.”

“The hotel is pretty quiet considering it is on a busy street. However noise can be heard in adjoining rooms. Try to get a room without a door that opens to the next room.”
