Room is comfortable and the front desk is friendly. Very value for money. They arranged for a cab for us to go back airport as they suggested it's more economical and faster using private hired car arranged by them.

We stayed here for 1 night midweek to attend Winter Wonderland. Great location for the museums, not far from knightsbridge and less than 5mins to the tube station. By London standards the room was good size, bathroom and dressing area were large. Only downfall would be no complimentary water, and we seemed to get lost finding the stairs and lift....

Both rooms booked were in great decorative order and a pleasure to walk in to. Spacious, warm and with modern appliances in both. Televisions were of good quality and sound. Beds very comfortable. Plumbing appliances lovely and quiet. Breakfast was served in good surroundings and what a lovely breakfast it was. Plenty of choice and the eggs were delicious. All...

Nice hotel in the middle of South Ken. We upgraded to the queen room (although it was just 2 single beds together, and there was no bathtub as advertised....). Room was a bit small but fine for the two nights we were there. Very short walk to Gloucester rd tube. Lovely range of restaurants and cafes nearby. About 30min away...

I had a positive experience at Rydges Kensington London during my recent work-related visit to London (5-17 Dec 2016). The hotel staff were friendly and helpful and the location of the hotel was excellent. The room (317) was well kept and maintained (but lacked a view and relatively small for a double bed room), and travelling to/from Heathrow Airport was...

Expensive and not worth for the money you pay.Neat and tidy and good location. Bathroom is so tiny and crammed. Free WiFi which is good. Breakfast is continental.very close to tube station. Rooms are not as big as you think for the premium rooms. Neat and tidy though.

We stayed here for one night and were very impressed. Although we had booked a standard queen room, upon check in we were informed we'd been upgraded to an executive king room. The room was lovely, spotlessly clean, well appointed, and the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was good value (£15 for full English) and very tasty. Would definitely stay...

My partner and I stayed at this hotel from October 3-8. Great location, aceptable room. Overpriced breakfast. Second day in, main elevator went out. Third day in, we found out the cash and watch had been stolen from the safe in the room. Police was called although the reception didn't feel was necessary and after we insisted they called it....

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.
