A decent Kensington hotel in a good central location, just a short walk to Kensington High Street tube station and Hyde Park. Breakfast is not included and is very expensive, so I would strongly advise going to one of the nearby cafés such as the Muffin Man just around the corner. The staff are nice and overall I enjoyed my...

I stayed as part of a group for 1 night paying £180 per room which didn't include breakfast although breakfast was negotiated into the price later. I stayed in a 'superior' room which was very basic and quite grubby. The bathroom in particular wasn't clean e.g. hairs on the bathroom floor. I found it almost impossible to use any 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.
