This hotel is overrated at tripadvisor. It is average and to show this I give some details of our stay (we were two sharing a room) : - upon arrival you have to climb some stairs and you have have to choose between left or right entrance door. We did choose the left door and this was bad luck, we...

Stayed one night prior to a 24 hour international flight, and hardly got any sleep due to noise. Nice staff who initially appeared very professional but did not handle the situation well at all, plus were not able to make executive decisions in the absence of their Manager.

Despite having a reservation at another well recommended London hotel, when the Cranley came to my attention, I decided to give it a try. Good decision, and I was totally satisfied. Convenient for Heathrow. Easy walk to Gloucester Road tube station. Excellent selection of restaurants within walking distance, including the Noor Jahan (which I highly recommend) next door. Pleasant neighbourhood....

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.
