I had not been to London for 27 years. Kensington was a superb area in which to stay. The hotel was right across the street from the tube, which was super-convenient. Lots of attractions closeby - the V&A Museum, Science Museum, Natural History Museum, as well as Kensington Palace & gardens & Harrods, all within walking distance. Pay the small...

We had an excellent five day stay. The room was very clean, the entrance is very bright and lively and the staff was extremely helpful. The hotel is centrally located and right near a train station and a short walk to museums and restaurants. We had a great time! Would definitely stay again and highly recommend it.

This hotel never fails to deliver a consistent and comfortable service for its guests. I have stayed here several times over the last one year plus and the service is always consistent. Courteous staff, smooth check in, clean rooms, great breakfast buffet, lovely Asia style restaurant with a tasty menu.

This hotel is situated very close to the Gloucester Rd tube station and is therefore very convenient to get around the city. The hotel is clean and the staff are friendly. There is a 'secret garden' behind which is a great retreat from the noises of the very busy Cromwell and Gloucester Roads. A relaxed atmosphere throughout makes for a...

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.
