Having read some of the previous negative reviews of the hotel I have to say we were pleasantly surprised. My wife and I stayed for 2 nights and our daughter for a single night. Yes the hotel is a bit dated and the rooms aren't huge. On the positive side it's clean, our bed was really comfy, all of the...

Needed a room for only a few hours to get some sleep. Very basic but clean. Comfy beds so a good sleep is guaranteed. The location is very good, about 10min walking distance from Victoria Station. Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Would definitely go again.

Booked here to stay in town after some Xmas drinks as it was under £60 B&B for a single room. I often stay in budget hotels for single nights and this was one of the best. Clean, friendly and basic, with a reasonably-sized room. Great location to get to most places in London. Will definitely use again.

I stayed the night here with a friend of mine. The room was a little small but clean and functional. Very good value for the location.

Well located for Earl's Court Underground and therefore all of the city. Cosmopolitan area, wide choice to eat around there. The hotel is clean, simple no frills, but helpful staff and emphasize clean. Simple breakfast, the front desk is manned 24/7. What more do you tourists need.

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.
