My husband and I stayed here overnight recently as we were attending a concert at the Royal Albert Hall and wanted somewhere that was within walking distance. It was a lovely hotel and check in was very quick and smooth. We were actually upgraded to an executive suite which was huge, although we weren't really able to take advantage of...

Located about 100m from Gloucester Road station on Circle line the Rydges hotel is conveniently located for a visit to London both business or leisure. I've been upgraded to executive room which was quite spacious (for London hotels). Large TV screen and (what I find important) well placed power plugs. There is a USB plug as well to view pictures...

I booked a standard single room, as I am just one person and was only staying one night. I've stayed in single rooms before and wasn't expecting anything spacious, but was really taken aback at how absurdly small this single room was. I couldn't wheel my suitcase beyond the entryway, as the space wasn't large enough. This meant the only...

We stayed at this hotel April 13 to 15 during a visit to London. The location was fantastic as it was literally across the road from the Gloucester Underground station and many sites within walking distance. The staff were all very nice ( especially the gentleman working the restaurant for breakfast both mornings ) and quite accommodating. The rooms were...

We came to London with a friend from South Africa to show her around London for the first time. This hotel was perfectly situated with Hyde Park just at the end of the road! We caught buses from there into central London as we wanted to see as much as possible, though the underground station was very close to the...

We stayed for a week in the Chelsea Suite which had lovely views over a news at the rear of the property. It was warm, well furnished and quiet. The poor attention to detail was a worry, though. We booked and paid for 4 guests but only got 2 bath towels, 3 days running, despite it being reported, we only...

Really nice hotel, great location with Gloucester Road underground station just opposite. The Royal Albert Hall is around a 10 minute walk away and there are plenty of restaurants nearby. Room was modern and clean. Front of house staff on the desk were very efficient, professional and attentive. Would stay here again!! We had a lovely walk down to natural...

We stayed at the Rydges Hotel for one night in March 2017. Very pleasant hotel with helpful and friendly staff. We arrived before check in time, and asked if we could leave our case until later. They checked to see if our room was ready yet. It wasn't but we were asked if we wanted to wait about 10 minutes...

This hotel is well situated for Gloucester Road Underground station. The room was a good size with a comfy large bed. Bathroom was very modern with a powerful shower - although the towels were very small. We were in a basement room which was a little dark but very quiet. There is a small bar on site that has a...

I booked Rydges through a Travelzoo offer for a mini break in London. The hotel staff are very welcoming and our room on the third floor was spacious and comfortable and very quiet. Breakfast was included in our offer and was very good with plenty of choice. The bar is cosy and ideal for a night cap after a day...

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.
