Cheaper and much more of an atmosphere. Breakfast is extensive and it's eat as much as you like. Rooms up top will have a massive view over London and the Thames. There is a snack shop a cocktail bar and masses of meeting rooms

Myself and my husband stayed at the Copthorne Tara Hotel for 3 nights (11/04/2017 to 13/04/2017). Our room (505) overlooked a busy railway line and the trains were every few minutes until 1.30am and resumed at around 5am so we barely slept. One of the lifts did not stop on our floor (the 5th floor) and we were told by...

Stayed here a few times in the past. It's not fancy, a bit tired but it's clean and welcoming. Reception staff are lovely and friendly. Several lifts so no need to queue. Rooms are comfortable and good toiletries. Didn't have breakfast but at £12 a throw it's good value as by the time you eat somewhere else you won't pay...

We arrived too early and the receptionist explained that the room wasn't ready, which we expected. However, we could upgrade to a Superior class of room, our three night stay would cost an extra £90. Then she added that it would include breakfast and as breakfast was £12 each we upgraded at an actual cost of £18. The room was...

The hotel was simply amazing, great rooms and room service, friendly attendants at the concierge, and generally great food. I enjoyed the buffet restaurant a lot, also because I only tried the others once or twice. I would definitely recommend Copthorne Tara.

Have stayed here annually for several years now but this time was one of the best. A pleasant greeting on arrival, safe parking for cars and a very helpful concierge. My room on the 7th floor had been refurbished but the downside was that there are now no shelves or drawers, just hanging rails. Stayed over 4 nights so lived...

Very reasonable price considering this hotel is located in the centre of Kensington. Walking distance to the palace, gardens and Royal Albert Hall (10 min walk) Restaurants and shops very nearby. Staff very pleasant, room could do with a refurbishment but clean, buffet breakfast great value. Will return

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.
