Trip was let down by unhelpful staff at entrance and heating not working in room. We travelled with a baby, and although the website explained there were stairs to entrance, there was no staff to help open door or assist in anyway. 2nd night our heating broke and we were offered a portable radiator. Not the kind of thing I... More

The hotel is easy to get to from Heathrow. You jump on the subway at Heathrow and take the Piccadilly line to South Kensington. (Take BA to Terminal 5 if you can, as you can get on the subway right there without the 20 minute underground walk from the other terminals). The hotel is about 2 minutes from South Kensington...

Will return. Friendly, stylish, comfy with great food at breakfast, and main meal and gorgeous cocktails. Unusually good for a hotel as I'd normally just eat out somewhere. Quick and easy location near South Ken tube. Wonderful beds. Clean rooms. Lovely atmosphere.

Fantastic family suite stay - one night Great access to nearby underground,museums and restaurants. Staff very helpful and attentive,whilst retaining a relaxed atmosphere. Can get very busy at times so prob worth researching what you'd like to book in good time to avoid disappointment at restaurants / afternoon tea,for example

Location, the best! Very nice technology perks, like they provide a cell phone with data for your use during your stay and whole room is digitally controlled. Very nice bathrooms and comfortable pillows too. Bedroom space was very tight but was nicely decorated. Just wish the room had a mirrored area where you could plug in to do hair as... More

My daughter recommended this hotel and we're glad she did. The hotel is in a lovely location. Walking distance for Knightsbridge, royal Albert hall and other attractions. All the staff were friendly and efficient. The room was small but beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. The best thing was the bed!! One if the most comfy beds we've ever slept in.... More

The hotel was absolutely delightful. Very convenient location with the South Kensington tube station only a black away as well as the Natural History Museum within a five minute walk. Great restaurants nearby, both sit down and to go, fun coffee shops and a great area to walk around and experience London. The hotel itself is fantastic. Very comfortable bed,... More

My stay was excellent, hotel is lovely and well located, easy to find. I was travelling for business, but definitely would've liked to stay longer. Good service. Didn't get the chance to try food and beverages. Place to recommend.

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.
