A very nice hotel in beautiful London! Ease of access to the tube and small local restaurants made this hotel that little bit easier. Room was small (could just swing my cat), but so to are 80% of the hotels in London. A good hotel to sleep and shower... Almost impossible to have any downtime in the room. Lobby is...

The hotel was very quiet, located close to underground and restaurants - nice place to use as a base for touring London. We felt safe here and in the area.

I stayed here recently and i would make the following observations - and as somone who travels all over the UK every week i know what i can expect - especially for the £130 per night... 1. The hotel is a rabbit warren of corridors with poor signage making it easy to get lost 2. The irons are 1 on...

This place has a great location, you couldn't be in a prettier part of town and be so close to everything you need. The single rooms are TINY, and the showers even more so, but they are clean and well-maintained. TV not in a good place to watch when lying down on the bed - you'll get a serious kink...

We got a discounted rate as my GF had a special rate with work. It was still too much. But then again it is London! Everyone has said how small the room was, I've been in smaller but not by much. The toilet/shower was SMALL. But it worked and the shower was quite comfortable so no complaints there. The bed...

I stayed at Kensington Rooms hotel for 2 nights in June 2010. It has a superb location, easy to get to Oxford str in 15 min by bus and the nearest tube station is just 4 min on foot, however for a business traveler like myself I must admit that the room I had was just disappointing. Very small room,...

We stayed 1 night at this hotel whilst attending a concert at the Royal Albert Hall. The tickets for the latter had cost a lot so I searched for a reasonably priced 3 star hotel nearby for approx £125.00. Our superior double room (room 200) cost £123 through a booking agent, and it was extremely large 25 ft. x 25...

Rooms are tiny and old fashioned, shower was minuscule and bath room VERY basic. TV didn't work very well and all the rooms have simple windows, which means traffic noises from very lively Cromwell Rd surround you. Bring your ear plugs. Breakfast was adequate, service friendly and the reception and bar area tidy. Good location adjacent to the Piccadilly service...

My name is Betty Talley. I stayed in your establishment from May 25 to May 29. During that time the toilet was plugged, the sink didn't drain properly, there was no heat to my room and the breakfasts were disappointing, especially toward the end of our stay when the choices became more scarce. The night of the 27th I brought...

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.
