I stayed here recently with family. We booked the four single bed room. It was a great size and had a sizeable bathroom. Not only did they offer plenty of toiletries, they also included complementary drinks in the fridge each day. Plenty of in room tea and coffee options as well as biscuits. The beds are plush and soft, great...

Excellent reception staff, friendly, courteous and efficient. The hotel was average in price and room decor, but the hospitality of the reception staff was outstanding, they are to be congratulated. The location of the hotel was very convenient for access to the underground and touring London.

I am basing this review solely on the rack rate I paid of £115 including brekkie. Tried to book for next week and price for same room (standard single) was £235! Anyway, Hotel is situated in a very nice district within walking distance of 2 tube stations, lots of quiet bars and restaurants on the road too so plenty of...

Stayed for one night, to meet with a colleague and friend who is staying there all week and have no complaints overall. The hotel is a five minute walk from Earl's Court tube (exit on the Earl's Court Road side of the station). Rooms are not enormous but are nicely finished with an excellent selection of toiletries (toothbrushes and baby...

After booking months earlier and upon arriving late in the evening our room had somehow been given away. Corine and Andreas could not do enough for us to rectify the problem. As we had a complimentary drink Corine cleaned a room for us and all was sorted. However the room was a small double. We took it for the night...

I selected The Mercure having stayed at others in France and England where we have been quite satisfied. This hotel, I would say is an old hotel refurbished to a rather cheap and poor standard. The quality of bathroom fittings, for example, were poor although the bathroom was clean. The rooms were small and badly planned although the bed and...

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.

“The room was adequate for our stay with tea & coffee making facility plus a fridge. Hotel is ideally situated for the museums & shops. The downside was the car parking not enough at the hotel & roadside parking was expensive.”
