This hotel punches well above its weight. It’s like they took my list of things that really annoy me about hotels and made sure none of them were present. I was incredibly impressed with this hotel. Firstly, it’s not silly money for the location. That got me there in the first place and it exceeded my expectations in every respect....

A sensible London price. Clean helpful staff and easy walk to the tube. Have stayed at some London hotels at a much greater price and not as good. Easy to get to from Earl's Court or Gloucester Road tube stations.

£230 for an executive suite for a weekend is a good price for London so when I booked I wasn't sure what I'd be getting. I was happy with the hotel though, lovely staff always happy to help. The room was smaller than expected but comfy. My one niggle was the air con, it's not very cold and the room...

My girlfriend and I spent 3 nights at this hotel. Overall, we were pleased with the hotel and the service, quite standard, nothing exceptional but good value for the money. The room was very clean, the bed was comfortable, good shower. Unfortunately, our room was super small, we could barely fit the two of us and our one suitcase. This...

Nice hotel for affordable price! The perdonnel were nice and the Breakfast was great! The hotel is situated a 5 minutes Walk from The Earl's Court Station straight from Heathrow with Picadelly Line. Very convenient!

We stayed one night in transit through London. The hotel is not close to any of the main hub railway stations for Gatwick or Heathrow and is a bit of a walk to the nearest tube station. There is a supermarket nearby so able to get our own food. It is in a nice area but the rooms are only...

Overnight layovers aren't exactly the peachiest part of traveling--however--if you can find a good place to lay your head, you'll be just fine. I booked my stay at this hotel hours after I landed in London and eh I got to there I was greeted by friendly staff who promptly checked me in. My stay was quiet and comfortable. I...

This hotel is near to Gloucester Road tube station which is about 10-15 minute walk. It is a reasonable hotel but is in need of some refurbishment to modernise. The lift is very small and doesn't reach all floors (6th floor had to be accessed by walking up the stairs from 5th floor). The bathrooms are small and are not...

The hotel is located 6 minutes walk away from Earl's Court Station. I would not rate this hotel as 4 stars but a high level 3 star. The standard room was very small and the bed very uncomfortable.

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.
