This was my 2nd time staying at Stay In Chelsea Guesthouse, so regardless of some posts on this the place isn't that bad. This time we had a twin room (room 6) on the 1st floor, which was a lot smaller than the double that we had the last time. I felt this room was a lot more basic than...

The location is perfect, just 5 minuets from the tube line, the building could do with some serious work to it but at the end of the day it was clean and comfortable in the bed room. Fine for if all you expect is somewhere to rest your head. You do have to share bathrooms with others on your floor...

They cheat you for money - and send you to another place, no refund. Worst hotel experience ever !!! 3 minutters before arriving they sent us an SMS saying they had no more room. Still they kept our money and World NOT refund it.

Do not stay here. There is no front desk and you have to call the staff to be let in the building. We were lucky enough that someone staying there let us in so we had a place to sit but I talked with others who had to wait outside for hours when they had been promised staff would be...

When we first arrived the guy took whole payment by cash, saying card machines do not work. Nor he gave us receipt. The place is really awful and we had to ascend 4 floors with heavy suitcases, no...

This hotel is nothing like the pictures. There is mould everywhere, holes in the walls, people smoking weed out the windows. We waited almost two hours to check in as no one would answer the door or phone. We paid for a family room and got two single beds in a room the size of a closet! No TV, no...

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.
