The stuff at the Cranley is very nice and always tries to find a solution to any request you might have. When I could not get a taxi myself in the morning during rush hour, José from the hotel stuff went out on the street to catch one for me and when this as well did not work out he...

As a first time traveler to London, I agonized about where the best location would be for me to stay. I selected the Cranley, based on customer reviews, and was extremely happy with my decision. As a female traveling solo, I felt extremely safe walking in the neighborhood to get to the Tube and the Big Bus station. Nice restaurants...

We stayed just for 2 nights and found the room to be quiet, clean and comfortable. Staff were welcoming and helpful. It would have been nice to be able to open the windows a little more (the weather was unseasonably warm during our stay) but I guess thats a security measure so understandable. Free wifi was a bonus. We prepaid...

Perfection! The staff anticipated my every need and want...even some I did not know I had. Most professional and warm hotel staff I have ever met. My 4 poster room was elegant and the epitome of comfort. On Easter, they left Easter eggs on my bed. The area is quiet for sleeping and yet right around the corner are fine...

The staff at The Cranley anticipated my every need. My room was huge, comfortable, and beautifully appointed. The manager David Garcia stands for quality in everything he touches. This four star hotel provides 5 star service. The area of South Kensington is beautiful, easily accessible by public transportation, and full of magnificent restaurants. I can't wait to return.

Very quiet and comfortable (no ear plugs required no) and the staff was very accomodating. Clean and nice bath room w good powered shower only. Lots of big pillows and lined curtains. Good working space and lighting. I had some...

Stayed here for 3 nights. After a 9+ hour flight, a tube ride to Gloucester, and a 3 block walk, this is was a welcome sight. Nice quiet street, lovely lobby, made us feel right at home.

Check in was very smooth and efficient. We were immediately offered tea in our room and shown to room 501. This has to be one of the best rooms in London that we have stayed in. The room was large, the bed enormous, table and desk provided. We liked that you did not have to walk around the bed to...

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.
