We booked this hotel on Expedia and were able to pay in US$ a couple of months ahead of our trip. It is in South Kensington about a five-minute walk to the Gloucester tube station which connects to three different lines around London. We had several excellent restaurants nearby recommended by the hotel and several coffee shops, bars, and Kensington...

Visited London for the weekend. This boutique hotel was conveniently located 8 minute walk from South Kensington tube stop. Many local restaurants and bars if you don't feel like venturing through Central London. My room was not huge, but the area was very walkable and safe, staff very friendly, room very clean and services were good. Free breakfast was included...

Nice hotel with spacious rooms (for London). Check-in was efficient, despite there were 10 of us. The hotel was very handy for the Tube (5-10 minute walk) and there were many shops and restaurants nearby. Only slight con was that the hotel could not serve breakfast (brought to the room on a tray) before 7am, which was slightly inconvenient for...

After reading all the wonderful reviews, we were incredibly excited about our stay at the Cranley, and I'm happy to say we weren't disappointed. Upon our arrival, Jose greeted us and showed us maps of the area, gave us a great recommendation for lunch at Bumpkin restaurant, and then had complimentary tea and biscuits sent to our room while we...

I found the staff at the Cranley to be incredible professional and friendly, they assisted me with all my requests. I have not been to London in 7 years and felt very comfortable and spoilt.

Was due to stay at The Cranley for 2 nights as an 'anniversary' getaway from the kids. Just about to leave home when The Cranley called to say that they would have to transfer us for our first night due to water damage in the room that was allocataed to us. Fair enough, not their fault I thought but what...

We stayed at the hotel fore a week, and had a great experience! The location was excellent! There were fabulous restaurants, shops, taxi stands and you could quickly walk to the underground. The rooms were average size (for american standards) and nicely decorated (great clean bathrooms). Room service great as well and they're fresh baked scones and clotted cream are...

We stayed 6 nights at The Cranley. Everything exceeded our expectations: location, room and especially, their dedicated attention. The hotel is located in a quiet residential area, but with all services at very short distance - restaurants, cafés, tube station (Gloucester Road). Our executive room was very comfortable and spacious, with a king bed and ample bathroom. Rooms are decorated...

When planning this trip, I was looking for a hotel that would satisfy the following requirements: 1) good location in a safe neighborhood, 2) easy access to transportation, and 3) a property that would have personalized service (not be like every other hotel around). This lovely boutique hotel fit the bill perfectly! Service was outstanding. From emails with guest services...

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.

Sitting quietly on an attractive South Ken side street, The Cranley Hotel in London is the perfect townhouse-from-home. With its mahogany antiques, Regency-period palette and prettily embroidered bedheads, it's an ideal base for a spot of Anglo-centric shopping, sightseeing and tea-taking. ... more   less
