Word of advice: DON'T end your vacation in this hotel, it could ruin the experience of London. Granted we are in a large city with limited space, but this hotel could create space by losing the plywood, stained, unstable furniture. But then what would hide the light bulb that flickers on and off when ever it wants. Maybe the electrical...

When we got to our hotel we were given room 606, and when we got there there were still dust sheets on the floor and wet paint on the walls...after informing the reception staff we were moved to a family room which was far too cramped. I can understand that not all hotels have air conditioning but during the month...

I stayed at the Ambassadors Earls Court in London in May 2007. For the price of $130 a night you wouldn't expect hostel quality from a hotel. But that's exactly what this "hotel" is. I've seen student hostels for better value. I wouldn't recommend anyone to waste their money on this place. They call themselves '3 star' which clearly is...

This hotel is awful. The rooms are miniscule, a twin room has two single beds pushed together, so you may as well be sleeping in a double bed. There is only about 14" beween the bed and the wall too, making it very cramped. Storage space is very, very limited, no drawers, just open shelves - there would be no...

I don’t quite understand the hassle about this hotel. The room was small but not tiny. We had enough space for our bags and to move around. The bathroom and the room itself were clean; the maid cleaned it every day. There were no stains on the sheets or towels whatsoever. The only thing that didn’t work was the blinds,...

If you are looking for a budget hotel in a really central location of London (such as Earl's Court), then this hotel has a chance. But otherwise find another alternative. The first night we were given a basement room - even though I booked the room 3 days before via internet. The front desk just kept saying that they had...

When I booked this hotel for one night at Easter I was pleased with the internet deal I had managed to get, but a little worried when I read the reviews. Still, my husband said "we only have to sleep there the one night". Sleep would have been nice! After quite a long wait to book in we managed to...

Basement room was quiet and adequate if a little small. Well heated for February but could imagine it being overpoweringly hot in summer. Included continental breakfast was reasonable, plenty of choice. Disappointed no bar (coffee bar serving snacks in foyer but no alcohol)- went to Holiday Inn round the corner (pleasant bar here, expensive but not desperately so!) Main problem...

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.
