The hotel is located in a good section of town. Easy access to the tube and several restaurants. As advertised, the rooms are quite small. With really only room for one piece of luggage and the clothes closet. however, the bathroom is nice, lots of water pressure. It was a pleasant stay. The Restaurant offers breakfast every morning as part...

Location is perfect to explore London with 2 railway lines at Earls Court Station, 2 minutes away, taking you easily and quickly to every London icon and easily took us too Heathrow for our trip home. We had a family room which was perfect for 1 child and 2 adults with all the shops for food and essentials a minute...

Location is very close to Earls Court tube, & the street is reasonably quiet. I had a room at the front, and slept with the window open. Room was clean and better than many I have have stayed in in London. Bathroom was adequate, with toiletries provided, again all very clean. Arrived late evening and left straight after breakfast, and...

Great place to stay when on business. Easy walking from Earls Court Tube and an array of eating places. Comfortable beds, very clean as you'd expect of Best Western and more than enough for breakfast. Some of the rooms are a little snug but for one night it's fine.

The hotel is in a perfect location, near Earl's Court tube station and all the amenities of the area, but not on the main road, so it's really quiet. The staff is really friendly and helpful. The low point are the rooms though. They are clean and of the right size, but they definitely need a renovation. The carpet is...

The hotel had a very Faulty Towers feel as in the structure of the building unlike all these clean new builds with zero character and charm. The hotel was warm and inviting from the moment we arrived. Staff on reception were very friendly and helpful. The room was a little snug but couldn't fault the cleanliness. A good comfy bed...

The location is great, a few minutes walk from nearby Earls Court tube station. I had a standard room (number 118) with twin beds (staying alone). It was fine for one person, but for two adults, it would have been rather tight. The floorboards in my room, adjacent rooms, and rooms above all creak a bit loudly, not fun if...

This hotel is a great value. You can't beat the location and proximity to the Earl Court station. The hotel is a bit dated but the staff is very professional and friendly. Rooms are clean but not spacious. They have heat but no A/C. I had to barrow a fan from the front desk for my 3rd floor room

We spent one night here when on our way home from southern England. The hotel is just a stone's throw from the Earl's Court Station which is on the Piccadilly Line which runs right to Heathrow Airport. A very convenient location for us. The room was just fine, very comfortable. Breakfast was excellent. The hotel is within walking distance of...

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.
