We spend four nights at this hotel. It deserves its high ranking. We had Room 105 - pretty much adjacent to the elevator, but you did not hear it. The room was reasonably spacious for London. Nice TV with many channels. The bathroom was very large and very well appointed. Spectacular is a good word to describe the bathroom. We...

We're still here (me with my 16-yr old son) and may never leave. At the very least, I can assure you we may never have an experience like this again. What a hotel! Or, as the spectacular staff refers to it, our "home." This is 5 star luxury, with almost more than we can handle in terms of service. Rooms...

I am lucky to have the opportunity to visit the Milestone Hotel fairly regularly! ALWAYS such a friendly welcome from all the personnel. If you find yourself in the Kensington area and want a delightful break from the hustle & bustle of the great city - Visit the Milestone Hotel - just for a coffee, a visit to the bar...

Stayed at the Milestone for our wedding anniversary. The staff were sure to notice our anniversary, we were left with lovely goodies in the room on arrival. Hotel is in a fantastic location right opposite Kensington gardens. Will be back again!

I stayed at the Milestone awhile back and completely forgot to give it a review. The Milestone is, by far, the best hotel in London. The service is top-notch and second to none. They went out of their way to ensure we were happy with every aspect of our stay. The rooms are very large (by London standards) and tastefully...

If you are looking to be in a large hotel, this is not the place for you, but if you are looking for a taste of London at its finest - the Milestone deserves a worthy mention for exceptional service. Since we first arrived everything has been impeccable. For us what makes this hotel stand out from the rest is...

I have travelled a lot but I have never received such welcoming and friendly treatment from a hotel as the Milestone! From the open bar due to our rooms not being ready (it was new years day and guests were late to leave) to the smiles and friendly manner of the staff throughout our 9 night stay, it was almost...

The Milestone has been on my bucket list of hotels for several years. I had very high expectations, and I was not disappointed! We booked a car from the hotel to pick us up at the airport. Our driver, Colin, was great! He made us feel very welcome and gave us lots of information on the ride to the hotel....

We've just returned from a fantastic stay at the Milestone. If you're looking for a large, contemporary hotel, this is not for you. But if you're looking for somewhere which is full of history and character, where you will be looked after wonderfully, then look no further. The staff could not have been nicer - special mention to the lady...

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.
