Arrived in London from 13 hours flight. Fast check in, big family room, friendly staffs, good breakfast and very good location. Located 5 minutes walk from High Street Underground Station. We will surely stay here again.

Spent one night at this hotel in an Upgrader Superior Plus room. At a first sight it appeared to be a very busy hotel and despite being busy, the service provided was excellent by most staff members. In terms of location this hotel is conveniently located in a quiet area in Kensington set just 2 minutes away from High Street...

Couple of minutes walk from Kensington High St underground, lots of places to eat and shops. Large good quality hotel with several restaurants / bars, however we had room only as there's loads of places to eat nearby. Stayed 2 nights. Allocated a double room which had an 'interconnecting door' which meant that any noise from the next room was...

We stayed here for three nights and found it very convenient and comfortable. It is near the tube station and local buses which go into Trafalgar Square. We didn't eat at the hotel as there is a wealth of coffee shops and restaurants on Kensington High Street. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Would stay there again.

This hotel is ideally located in Kensington, just 2 minutes away from Kensington High Street station, and the High Street itself. 10 minute walk from Kensington Palace Gardens, with a range of shops on the High St. Staff at the Copthorne Tara are the most pleasant and helpful staff Ihave come acroos - customer service is excellent.

I did London, Paris and Amsterdam on this trip. I only slept in this hotel no lounging, so I didn't need a fancy hotel. If you're looking for a fancy one this isn't it. But if you're looking for a nice hotel that you're just going to sleep in because you're sightseeing the rest of the day... this is definitely...

I stayed at this Kensington hotel in the spring of 2016 and returned in the spring of 2017. Its location near the Kensington High Street shops and Tube station is a real advantage. Ask for a room facing the square as the rear rooms look over the open subway cut. I'd judge this large place to be about 50 years...

We were a coach party of 13 people, arrived at 1:30pm, 2 couples got their rooms quickly at 1:45pm. All the rest of us were being told check in is at 3pm, the foyer was packed with people with not enough seats to accommodate everyone. We sat in the bar reading the paper and had a drink but kept checking...

My stay in the hotel wasn't 'wow!' but definitely wasn't bad either. It was average. So, what could be better? There was a waiting line for breakfast every morning. My light panel in the room broke 3 times. My bath was dirty when I arrived. I got a 'clean' towel with hair and a stain on it and the sound...

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.
