We stayed 5 nights at this hotel. Excellent and friendly staff and a good size and comfortable room. Breakfast included in the room rate was very good. Our only complaint - a minor one - is that the staff cleaning the rooms could do a better job. Would definitely stay here again

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 24 November 2016

We stayed 4 nights and would recommend this hotel. The Natural History Museum and V&A are within walking distance as are several eating options. As someone who doesn't like using the Tube the location was perfect as we could get buses in Cromwell Road or Kensington High Street and on the occasions we needed to use a taxi the receptionist...

This was our first visit to London as a family and for a special occasion. Our 2 night stay at this hotel made our trip very enjoyable. We booked a family room for the four of us and it was spacious and the beds were very comfy. The hotel is in a great location, close to the tube stations with...

I come here regularly and I'm always impressed by the friendly, professional and prompt service I receive. In particular Mihaly always greets us as treasured friends. Coffee is of a great standard, the food is wonderful and the location is great.

Hotel in good location and staff friendly and helpful. Room comfortable, clean and very compact but typical for European cities. Good selection for breakfast but we stayed for 7 days and it was a boring by the end as it was the same each day. Good selection of restaurants near by. We would go back to this hotel. We have...

One problem with this short stay: the elevators sometimes didn't work. Specifically, the regular elevator was not working when we arrived on Sunday, but the staff lifted us on the service elevator. The elevator was working on Monday, but Tuesday morning, neither elevator worked. This was a problem because my wife simply was unable to climb 4 floors to our...

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.

“The room was adequate for our stay with tea & coffee making facility plus a fridge. Hotel is ideally situated for the museums & shops. The downside was the car parking not enough at the hotel & roadside parking was expensive.”
