We stayed at the Burns Hotel on a recent trip with our grandchildren, ages 6, 8, & 10. We had to get two rooms, which is common for the UK, since they think a "family" is only four people. The Burns has a GREAT location in Kensington and is a very short walk from the Earls Court Underground or "Tube"... More

I stayed at this hotel during the Wimbledon championships. It's very close to Earl's Court tube, and close to many shops/restaurants/pubs etc. The room was a little on the small side and did not have any air conditioning making it very warm during the time I was there. I also found the wi-fi a little temperamental. Overall it's an average... More

Booked this hotel for a 2 night stay whilst in London in June. We chose this hotel for easy access to Wimbeldon, which it proved to be. Our room was average size, although a rather small double bed. Creaky floors was rather annoying. The bathroom was a good size and clean. Breakfast service very quick, only complaint was the toaster... More

Fine, good value, staff all friendly, easy reach of the tube an three good pubs within 100 metres, Tube 150 metres and plenty of various restaurants in walking distance. For the location it represents good value in a high value city, that can be over expensive!

This was not our first trip to London but first time at the Burns Hotel.

Recently had a 2 night stay at The Burns Hotel whilst having a family trip to London. I think the price of the rooms are expensive at £165 per night for a twin/double room but then it is London. I should add that it includes breakfast. The rooms are small but then what do you do in a London hotel... More

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.
