The Gallery Hotel is an intimate boutique hotel, where the guests feel home. The typical old british decorated public area (its mahogany paneled reception area, its original artworks, the imposing Jacobean Revival fireplace, plump sofas) is relaxing. What we have liked ire the rooms, very comfortable and homely decorated. Being a boutique hotel you should book in advance, in fact... More

It's a good traditional place... Although the neighbor is great, the hotel's service is not that good specially when it comes to wifi. So it is NOT that worth to stay there since the price is a little expensive, given the issues above mentioned.

The hotel - in need of refurbishment with yellowing woodwork, peeling wallpaper, stained carpet and shabby curtains, but the room provided what was needed being a bed, a bathroom with hot water and tea making facilities. We actually booked into the gainsborough hotel opposite but we're told to go across to the gallery hotel. Staff - pleasant but the waitress... More

I want to be fair so £90 a night B&B 5 minutes walk from South Ken isn't bad, not great but not bad. Clean with polite staff and to get your head down it was ok. However I stay in a fair amount of these more individual hotels over the years as I just don't like chains so my comparison... More

For a hotel in such a location, 3 min walk to the tube, near the museums and the Royal Albert Hall, this was a really good value hotel. By London standards the room was an OK size, had everything we needed (and a complimentary cup of tea on arrival which was nice). Good quality bed linen was a plus. Lovely... More

This was an interesting place to stay, lots of original features and antique stuff. Good location for getting about. Had a twin room for a few days pre-Christmas shopping.

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.
