A reliable hotel in a great location. I have stayed there more than 25 times. Decent bar and restaurant and a new private gym has been built next door. Some of the rooms are a bit dated but functional. The service is adequate but not great. The front desk staff are usually trainees and nice but not helpful. Service line... More

We like this hotel because of it's proximity to Earls Court on the Piccadilly Line. We appreciate the service we received from the checkin staff. Upgraded room was ver nice and the staff very pleasant to deal with. We have stayed here many times. Will continue to stay here because of location...not the quality of the place.

Stayed here while in London for two days of meetings. Marriott never disappoints. My room, 221, was clean, well appointed, and maintained. Would have rated the hotel a five except for two complaints: air conditioning didn't control room temperature very well. And the room windows overlooked the brightly lit marquee over the entrance. The red lights cast an uncomfortable glow... More

As Platinum, we got early (9 AM) check-in to a large room (junior suite?). Raoul Le Joncour at reception was superb and we hope Marriott recognizes his great customer service. Our room looked out over the backside of the hotel & was quiet. Would suggest trying to avoid rooms looking over busy Cromwell Street. No issues in the room with... More

Our room was extremely clean. The hotel was very nicely maintained. Breakfast was delicious. Staying here while in London was perfect. The price was affordable and the location was perfect. We were able to get around very easily. The staff were all very friendly. I cant wait to go back with my husband.

The special lounge for premier Marriott customers was very nice and cozy with wonderful hors d'oeuvres and we met several very nice fellow travelers while there. The breakfast is absolutely wonderful, so be sure to book you room to include that.

I stayed couple of times at Marriott Kensington. First time, besides it was freezing in the room and quite cold in the breakfast area, I enjoyed my stay and the services were pretty ok. This was the main reason why I wanted to return again, for my next business trip. But the second time it was quite disappointing for multiple... More

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.
