In the midst of a trip across continents, visiting family for the holiday season, we had just a few days to ourselves in London. We wanted somewhere nice to stay, in a good location, but affordable - in an expensive city at an expensive time of year. I read a lot of reviews on TripAdvisor and although the NH Kensington...

I stayed in the hotel for 2 nights. The location is very good and the hotel is nice though the rooms are small. My hair dryer was not working so I called Front Office and there was no answer. Went down to complain and had to wait at least 5 minutes before somebody came to the desk. Went for drinks...

I was nervous when I was told that my room was in the basement but my fears were unfounded. The daylit basement room was much larger than other rooms of the same price range in London and appeared newly renovated. Other reviews here mention a lack of charm. True, it does not have the old world charm other boutique hotels...

True, if you're looking for charm, you may not necessarily find that in this Spanish chain hotel. However, if you want a nice, comfortable, modern room, good breakfast and efficient service, this is the place for you. I was in the area on business, and it was perfect for my needs. Important for me is the availability of decent-speed wifi...

The hotel's in a great part of London, a stone's throw from Earls Court tube, so great when coming in on the tube from Heathrow, and then onwards into central London on the Piccadilly or District lines. The rooms and facilities are fine but nothing special, but very reasonable for the price. The lounge is cosy with garden views, free...

NH Kensington Hotel made our trip to London more enjoyable! Spotless room; lovely lounge area to relax in if you choose (free wifi with a code); a garden (in the middle of London); perfectly appointed room suitable for two young (cough!) ladies travelling in London. Bathroom was lovely - mood lighting over the bath just had to be tried -...

The stark lighting throughout the hotel didn't help the atmosphere...there is absolutely no charm in this hotel but the position is good for London near Earls Court and within walking distance of South Kensington and Knightsbridge. There is a bus stop just outside the hotel that takes you to Harrods in under ten minutes. The room price is very reasonable....

I took a risk booking online with a name-your-own price deal, but kept my search area limited and the star rating high. I am so glad I did. This hotel was great! Conveniently located within walking distance to Earl's Court underground station, friendly staff, nice rooms. Front desk staff took the time to show us a few can't miss sights...

Because we got this room for around £100/night (with tax), it was a great deal. Check-in time was indicated as 3 pm on our booking, but we arrived at 2.30 pm and were allowed into our room immediately. Great service, both over the room phone and at the counter - requests for a duplicate key card, bathroom slippers and an...

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.
