Aster House is a lovely Victorian townhouse located down a quiet street about a block from the South Kensington tube stop, and is walking distance to the Victoria and Albert Museum. It is also close to Harrods, but I would likely just jump on the...More
I spent 10 days here with my time mostly spent in the museums. The hotel gave me a good deal, being off season and I saved 5% by paying cash. That was easy to do by getting the money converted by my bank at home...More

Hiring a local guide is a good idea. Another option is to use a Hop On Hop Off bus to get an overview of the city. There are several such companies in London. If you just stay on the bus, a complete loop might take 4 or 5 hours due to traffic. If you have more time, pick one or two sites to jump off at and visit. Buy entry tickets in advance if possible.
Have a great time in a great city!
