I will be honest, I was very worried after I had booked this hotel due to the awful reviews I had read about it. But I was very surprised when I got there. Taking into account, it was probably the cheapest hotel I could find in central London, it was great. A short walk away from Gloucester Road or Earl's...

Stayed in this hotel for two nights recently with my wife.We were visiting family and needed a central location in Kensington close to Tube etc.In the week in question I had great difficulty finding any hotel but settled for the Ambassadors with some reservations based on reviews. The first room allocated to us had a broken window handle which meant...

This hotel, for me, was ideally located near the Earl's Court tube station, some cheap and decent dining and pubs, internet cafes, etc. But the hotel was just awful. The room was smaller than ANY room I stayed in throughout Europe. It was "spartan" to put it mildly. The bed was uncomfortable and the hallway outside was very noisy. I...

I booked this reservation through hotwire.com, which, in my previous and extensive experience of being a customer, has always been accurate with thier star ratings. This hotel, however, was a different story. Hotwire advertised it as a 2.5 star, a notch below the self-procrlaimed 3 star rating on the hotel's website, but still well above the half star rating it...

Other reviews left us feeling nervous! Room was smallish but clean and well set out. For the price we paid (about £50 per night) I thought it was a really good deal. What do people expect?

The rooms are very tiny with thin walls!. All the bathroom doors creak. We had hot water but others (we heard) didn't. After asking on day 1 to fix the TV aerial (which was broken) they didn't so for 3 days we had a tv but couldn't see it. Not that we wanted to watch it that much but the...

Firstly, the pictures of the rooms on hotel website are very deceiving, not anything like the spacious, bright and airy rooms you see . We were in a 'family' room, i had to climb over one bed to get to the wardrobe, there was no chair to sit down in the room, the bed clothes had cigarette burns in them...

We stayed in this hotel on 23 June and booked it due to its central location and apparently good value '3-star' price To cut to the chase, this hotel is extremely poor in standards, service and in quality. From our initial check-in attempts to our eventual check-out the hotel never failed to disappoint. I would question the reviews on this...

Please please stay away from this hotel. I booked this hotel at a very busy weekend for London and struggled to find some where to stay.

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.
