Good value for location (twin room £89 for 1 night) right next to Royal Albert Hall. Room clean and beds were really comfy. No tea or coffee making facilities and no iron were the only let down. Breakfast wasn't included but was £10 (we went...More
Was originally happily surprised by the hotel. The room wasn't as small as I had pictured after reading the other reviews and the bed was comfy enough. However the shower was a joke and impossible to use. The main negative issue though was I left...More
This is not a good hotel, just look at the photos i have posted!
The single room was tiny, there was no bedside table so you had to get up to switch the lamp on and off, portable air conditioning unit that had the extracting...More
Fabulous position and first impression good. However, the beds were so rock hard we didn't get much sleep and struggled with our bodies aches and pains the following day! Ordered a glass of wine as a nightcap after a great day out only to be...More

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.
