Hotel absolutely fantastic and bar area is really nice. Close to Gloucester tube station on the Piccadilly line with easy access into central London. We stayed in a twin room which was ok but quite cramped and the bathroom was really small. The bedroom door had a 2 inch gap at the bottom meaning the light from the corridor was... More

Obviously a first class location, such a treat being in the centre of things. Service was outstanding from the minute we walked through the door, the staff could not have been more pleasant, from the concierge on arrival, reception staff, bar staff and breakfast. An excellent breakfast, far better than the usual hotel offerings. Nice touch to send cake for... More

My room was ready about three hours earlier than check-in time which was great, I ended up receiving an upgrade, and the guest relations advisor even gifted me a bottle of wine for my birthday. That made a stellar first impression. The hotel staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. The location of the hotel is great. It's barely a three... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our 7-night stay here at the end of October. Room 140 was clean, bright and quiet - wonderful curtains to darken room for sleeping. Very comfortable king bed.

Radisson Vanderbilt is close to Gloucester Road station and within walking distance to museums. There are several restaurants nearby, from very good Indian to Italian. Also great places for breakfast. Hotel staff were very pleasant and helpful. Hotel meals were very good, but sometimes a long time coming. Nice bar and surroundings for an after work drink.

We visited this hotel for my daughter's 18th birthday. We would normally stay at a Premier Inn or similar, but wanted to splash out a bit for our celebration weekend.

Good location especially for Harrods. Staff friendly and restaurant food very good. We were allocated a smallish double bedroom and there were no drawers nor bedside tables which was an inconvenience. Hotel was clean and maintained to good standards.

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.

An imposing Georgian mansion in fashionable South Kensington, the four star Radisson Blu Edwardian Vanderbilt stays faithful to its past but espouses modern comfort in a classic London cityscape of porticos and leafy squares.
