It was too bad that hotel was under renovation so no reception area to hang out it. We arrived late and staff was very helpful. My driver didnt have change for my fare and they didnt hesitate to break the money I had. We reserved a room with two beds and was expecting a really small room given my expectations...

The room was fine, but the central area of the hotel was being reconstructed. I arrived amid a terrible noise from drilling out a floor. Checking-in was nearly impossible because of that. Very poor first impression. I made the reservation quite a while ago and I am of the opinion that the hotel should have warned me about the construction....

Dear Arie L thank you for your comments. We do apologies that your first impression was negatively influenced by necessary work that affects the lobby area only.

Although the hotel reception area and dining area are being refurbished right now, a pity for us, the overall feeling is that staff is coping well with it. And give us a welcoming feeling. The room is at lower ground facing the garden, nr 33. Not a great view, but on the other hand very quiet. Enough space and we...

On a convenient bus line; close to the Earls Court tube station and myriad restaurants and services--like laundries and dry cleaners. Terrifically comfortable rooms. We always appreciate the NH chain and use them whenever it's practical to do so. We recommend the properties in Portugal, Spain, Italy, Germany and New York, as well as this good London place.

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.
