We had a two night family stay here in September and were very happy with the experience. We had a family (two double beds) garden view room which was very quiet, and whilst the bedrooms are not massive they are adequate for London proportions. The only issues we had was trouble with the television, which runs through the internet, and...

We stayed here for 3 nights while in London and the location was great. We had 4 adults in a room with 2 double beds and we were quite comfortable. The bathroom was modern and nice. We loved the towels as they were quite large, which is unique in Europe. The staff at front desk were very polite, but we...

Still up to the great standard that I expect from such a hotel, with friendly, knowledgable staff, clean modern facilities and a great position. Only slight negative, is that a standard room is a little pokey! Would I stay here again? You betcha in a bigger room .

I returned to stay at Crowne Plaza Kensington and once again congratulated myself on the choice! The hotel is fairly small and cosy, the staff are helpful and knowledgeable and the hotel's one restaurant is pleasant without being flash. Where this hotel excels though, is with location. It is on Cromwell Rd and within easy walking distance of the Natural...

We stayed at the hotel for 6 nights and overall were very pleased with the hotel. The location for one was fantastic, located right opposite Gloucester train station. Gloucester train station is easy to reach via the tube from Heathrow airport. There is no need to take the Heathrow express as taking the Picadilly line was quicker and more direct....

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.

“We chose a double delux garden room, which was at the rear so quiet, light and airy.”

“The hotel is pretty quiet considering it is on a busy street. However noise can be heard in adjoining rooms. Try to get a room without a door that opens to the next room.”
