Only a 5 minute walk from Gloucester Road tube station so great location with easy access to the centre of London! There's a luggage room so if you arrive before check in then you can leave suitcases in the hotel and go for a wander! In a nice location with a fairly quiet street and a Waitrose and Tesco round...

Good location. Hotel is 5-10 mins walk from the Gloucester Road Underground Station (tube). There's a small Tesco opposite and a Waitrose Supermarket around the corner. There's a number of restaurants and eateries nearby. Sightseeing Hop on and hop off bus-stop is just along the road outside the tube station. Natural History Museum and Harrods are within 30 mins walking...

Great towels and clean sheets! Good location to underground stations and restaurants. Old building, windows are old, making the rooms noisy and damp. It had the feel of camping! Staff seemed very limited in the English language, but were cordial. They were not able to answer questions about the area. Windows are higher from floor in the two rooms we...

It wasn't that this was a bad hotel. It just wasn't a good one. The price was decent, but not for the closet room. The beds were very strange. We felt like we were camping. There was only one pillow per bed as well. The WiFi didn't work well. Breakfast was fine and location is good. The staff, however, left...

They wouldn't accept a booking made with the company credit card - the card has to be physically here when you check in. Ridiculous process with forms and emailing copies of the card if you want to use a company card that's not your own. Also TV in room doesn't work. I was hoping for a relaxing evening after a...

Stayed in Room 25 which is only reachable by stairs - not a problem- but there was a strong smell on the stairwell. Also, the stairs were partly blocked at the bottom by the laundry bags - which probably contravenes Health and Safety. Staff friendly and healthful. Room price probably fair for London - and good range of food and...

Came down from Newcastle to see Wicked, so ideally a good location and a decent price was what stood out with this hotel Turned up early to drop off a bag, and were able to check in early, fantastic, no need to then head back for checkin. Free WIFI and breakfast included too. Left Apollo at 2225 and back in...

Lovely friendly staff, nice and clean rooms my only problem was the rooms were too hot and although there was an air conditioning unit it was too noisy to have on through the night. The room next to us must have had there's on though as you could hear it.

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.
