We stayed in this hotel for a short break in London. The location was great for visiting the museums. It was also close to the tube so we could get anywhere in London really easily. The only thing that would make the hotel better would be more choice at breakfast.

I'm halfway through my one-night stay, but not even a complimentary breakfast at Harrods would entice me to stay here again. 1. They demand photo ID on check-in. 2. You have to hand your key in when you go out. 3. The cold water doesn't run cold, so you have no drinking water. 4. The decor is a joke -... More

Basic hotel, best thing is the location, 2 minute walk to the tube. Yes a budget hotel but £180 for 2 nights I at least expected a comfy bed but instead could feel the springs in my back. Customer service wasn't great either. Breakfast ok.

My friend and I just got back from a pleasant 6 night stay at the Avni Kensington Gardens hotel in south central London. It's located on a quiet street about a 5 minute walk from the Gloucester tube station which is a 35 minute ride direct from Heathrow Station on the Piccadilly Line. It is very near a Waitrose supermarket,... More

Yes the location is good and the continental breakfast was ok (book for a week if you want both sides of your bread toasted) the room and bed were so dire I can hardly express myself. The bed, covered in thin although clean sheet with no mattress cover, was so old and/or used I thought it was probably recovered from... More

Stayed for a week, if we could have afforded to we would have changed hotels on first night. Bed not great, room was freezing unless you put heating on high and kept windows closed at all times. Breakfast, don't bother, bread a meat and cheese with some cereal, toasters don't work, we ended up skipping most days. Carpet in room... More

At first I was excited to stay here... then I walked in... The bed is the most uncomfortable bed I've ever slept in - you could feel the springs (who still has mattresses with coil springs?!), there was no support in it and you'd roll towards the middle, not the mention the amount of stains that were on it.... the...

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.
