Three generations, which included our 19 month old grandson, spent a week at The Harrington over New Year. We had stayed in the area last year and loved the location. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment on the 5th floor, which had two smallish bathrooms but we didn't mind their small size because you make it for it with...

Dear Chris and David, We are really pleased to hear that three generations of your family enjoyed their visit to London and stay with us. We are aware of the issue with the lift, which was already installed in the property when we purchased it. We hope that we may welcome you and your family to stay with us again...

We stayed in a two bedroom, two bathroom apartment for two nights with another couple to celebrate our birthdays. We were able to check in earlier than the allocated time and check in was smooth and efficient. The staff were friendly and helpful.

The room is small but good. The kitchenette provided all the basics to do quick meals and drinks while the bed is comfortable. The location is next to Gloucester Road train station which is great for getting into the city and Hyde Park is just a 20 minute walk away. This is a convenient hotel at a convenient location.

We stayed Friday December 4th for two nights as a Christmassy City Break. We wanted to be central but not in the hustle of near Kings Cross as it is noisy at night. The location of these apartments is absolutely perfect and for that reason we will stay again. It is a 2 minute walk from Gloucester Road Tube Station...

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.
