A very convenient quiet location. We were very well looked after by friendly and helpful staff. The rooms are clean modern and comfortable. The hotel is small but provided for our every need. Great breakfast especially the porridge.

Really loved this hotel. Small but cosy - bed was so comfortable, shower was great and couldn't fault breakfast. Brilliant location. It was so unfortunate that it was very noisy. Could hear everything happening next door and was up several times during the night with wake up calls and people coming back to their room.

As usual this hotel didn't disappoint. We use this hotel quite often for my hospital appointments at the nearby Royal Marsden Hospital. Makes the whole journey easier. Lovely hotel, impressive staff. Just a good experience each time.

A hidden gem just moments from South Kensington tube (direct tube from Heathrow on Piccadilly line means you don't need to pay the hideous Heathrow Express costs and then connect by tube or cab).

Conveniently placed for Kensington and Chelsea. Pleasant room and comfortable but the highlight of our stay has to be the staff, all were welcoming and 'pleasantly casual' whilst extremely professional. Breakfasts were individually cooked to order rather than pre-prepared which was a nice surprise. I'm sure that we will be back.

Small but cozy. Convenient location. 5 minutes walk to South Kensington station. 20 minutes walk & 5 minutes taxi ride to Harrods. Room and elevator can be bigger, not much room with a big luggage. Staff at the breakfast are friendly. Efficient and fast check in and check out.

Staying in Chelsea

Neighbourhood Profile
Chelsea
Wealth courses through The King's Road, Chelsea's upmarket artery of West London life packed with shops, eateries and glitzy nightspots. For people-watching at its best and luxury retail therapy that's largely unrivalled, this area cannot be missed. But if this showy street starts to overwhelm or a moment of price tag shock sends you reeling, a quick detour down pretty much any of many King's Road veins will reveal a quieter side of Chelsea. Here the stately Royal Hospital hosts its world-famous flower show, and the Thames rolls along at a lazy pace, with leafy Battersea Park and its Peace Pagoda beckoning from across the river.
