Good hotel in great location. My room was lovely but in the basement close to breakfast preparation area. Was awoken far too early by noise of crashing cups and plates.

I thoroughly recommend this property, and can't imagine any traveler being unsatisfied, with the exception of those seeking an "in house" dining area. Room service is available, but the only place outside of a room to eat is in the lobby of the hotel. Rooms were carefully maintained and comfortable -- not large (by US standards) but not small (by...

I had a fantasic stay at the Cranley. The staff were very friendly and made us very welcome. We were upgraded to a suite unexpectedly and thoroughly enjoyed the champagne on reception and breakfast in bed. I would recommend this to anyone that would like a romantic break or wants to stay in Kensington. I will definitely be returning.

3 nights here. My wife and I were made to feel most welcome and the personal touch remained throughout our stay. Our room ,106, was spacious and extremely comfortable. Although there are no tea making facilities in the room,this would not present an insurmountable challenge to a well travelled guest.Breakfast {served in the rooms] was good- not cheap - but...

I am pretty stunned with this hotel. I spent a weekend evening with the Mrs. for a treat, and we were both very impressed. The difference starts from check-in. Unlike the usual process, they just sat us at a lovely table, we had a drink and a chat, and then were showed to our room. The size of the rooms...

The stand out aspect of this hotel is the staff. They were all polite and helpful in the extreme, I got the sense nothing would have been too much trouble for them. I stayed in a standard double which was fairly pleasant. I got a good night's sleep as the room was air conditioned and the bedroom was very quiet...

We have stayed at the Cranley Hotel before because we loved the small and intimate atmosphere and service. Again, we really enjoyed it. Our room was a large room with a 4 poster king-size bed, which is what l had asked for on the 3rd floor. The room has free wifi and air-conditioning as it was hot the week we...

The cranley was an excellent hotel to stay at. We got a room on the 4th floor that was quite small and it was extremely hot. The next day we were moved to another room down on the 1st floor. The room was much bigger and exactly like the pictures online. The staff was great at recommending resturants and giving...

Plus points: The hotel is in a lovely tranquil part of London The staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel is tastefully decorated (think historical English town house…) Down sides: I think I pulled a short straw with my room. It cost £210/night for a pokey room you’d have trouble swinging a cat in. With a view onto the wall/window...

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.
