My partner and i stayed at the cranley hotel last weekend. We had booked a superior double room but were actually allocated a single room as shown on their website. The room was so small that whilst one of us was getting ready to go out to dinner the other one had to sit on the bed. The room was...

My partner and I stayed at the Cranley Hotel last weekend. The room was very clean but we were overwhelmed by how hot and stuffy it was. We reported this to the receptionist who said he would look into it but nothing was done. All hearing was off but the heat was radiating above us. We had a very uncomfortable...

We booked this hotel through a last minute deal and thank goodness we did. Had we paid full price I would not have been impressed. The booking in was pleasant and efficient, We only had any interaction with a couple of staff and they were excellent. We were given a room in the basement, fine as far as it goes...

We used to come to the Cranley for years for its cosy atmosphere and nice location. Unfortunately, since the change of ownership, it is not the same anymore and it seems to be going downhill at a fast speed. Now we need to find another "hotel de charme" in the area.

The Cranley is superbly located in South Kensington, on a quiet street off the Old Brompton Road. There are a variety of decent pubs, coffee shops and restaurants nearby, and it is a short walk to the museum district, two tube stations and Hyde Park. We have stayed there several times over the last 10 years and it has been...

Hotel staff lovely. Location requires subway or taxi as most do in Kensington. Lovely quiet neighborhood. Room very clean (penthouse), bed fabulous. Needs a little cosmetic work but charming. I even left a favorite item behind and they had it and sent it. Unheard of.

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.
