We stayed at apartment 207 which in general was ok, could however need some smaller renovation here and there. Location of room wasn't the best, as there were lot of noise from streets Gloucester Rd and Harrington Gardens. Rooms facing away from these streets might be preferably.

We stayed at the Harrington for 10 days at the beginning of November. As others have said: "It is what it is". It certainly isn't anything fancy, but it was very clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly enough and housekeeping always responding quickly when we asked for anything. We did heed the warning of other reviews and opted to...

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.
