Stayed one night with my partner, we were off to the Albert Hall for the evening. Perfect location and amazing room, we stayed in the penthouse apartment and it was fantastic, beautiful decorated, clean, comfy bed and everything you'd need for a short or long stay. Hairdryer, iron, and a completely kited out kitchen. Amazing views across the city, even...

Loved the location, in a very nice area in walking distance to the national history museum, south Kensington restaurants and 15 min walk to the Royal Albert Hall. Staff was friendly and relaxed. We stayed in the cheapest room and it had a good size: bed, flat tv screen, small wardrobe, kitchen and bathroom with bath and shower. So it...

A good location for the apartments which were probably slightly over priced for the quality. Friendly and helpful receptionis. Studio was adequate although a little tired, bed itself was very creaky and the heating was either on or off with stat offering no real control.

Stayed here on a short visit. This was my second stay. Stayed with my wife for 10 days in Oct'16 for holiday. This ample proof of the place as very good for both the purposes. Location excellent, communication very convenient, interesting eating places and stores within easy reach. Service very professional.

I have stayed here before and liked it because the apartments are clean, spacious and conveniently located to the Tube. However, this time I received an email after I booked that the lift was out of order and they were waiting for a part. I assumed it would be fixed by the time I got there in a week. Wrong!...

Dear Ali M, Thank you very much for your valuable feedback. I am really sorry to hear that you had a disappointing experience with us this time. I can confirm that our lift is working fine again. The part had to be shipped all the way from Italy, and it took longer than expected. We really hope to be able...

I've used The Harrington now a couple of time during business trips to London. It is conveniently located about 100m from Gloucester Road tube station next to restaurants and shops. As always in London rates can vary widely but it can be good value for money and will give you a spacious apartment instead of the shoe box you usually...

My wife and I stayed here so that we could be close to the Royal Albert Hall and it is in an ideal place, just a short walk away. The apartment which was on the second floor was spotlessly clean and well appointed. I suppose the only thing lacking if we had stayed for a long time was a washing...

I stayed here for one night as I couldn't find another hotel in the area on short notice. The one bedroom apartment was noisy - I couldn't sleep the whole night. You notice any car driving past, let alone sirens (which are regular occurrence on a Friday night). You also notice every door being opened on the floor. For the...

The tone for our four-day stay was set at check-in where the main focus of an unfriendly reception was for us to acknowledge item by item a list of about 10 things that guests are prohibited from doing/limitations on service and pay a £100 security deposit. When we got to our one-bedroom apartment a large crack in the window gave...

Dear ClimbingOut, Thank you for taking the time to write on Tripadvisor with your feedback. Please note that as has been mentioned in other responses, the £100 is a pre-authorization which is a hold on a credit/debit card. This is common practice at most hotels in Europe, however we do not actually take the £100 from your card. We can...

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.
