What a lovely Hotel this is, stopped here a few times now and never being disappointed. Staff are very helpful and always cheerful. We stayed here when attending Wimbledon and we surprised as to how quickly you could get around the area.

Dear Michael W W, Many thanks for your lovely review. We are perfectly located for Wimbledon being just 7 stops direct on the District Line tube to Southfields. Don't forget the tennis at the Queens Club before Wimbledon, we are just 3 stops direct to Barons Court. We very much look forward to welcoming you back. Sincerely Colm Kelly General...

The rooms at the Queen's Gate Hotel are small but nice, and the hotel bar is reasonable but often extremely busy. The location is excellent with just a short walk to the nearest Tube station and within walking distance of Kensington Gardens, Hyde Park, Notting Hill, and Portobello Rd.

Only booked this hotel as it came up with a good deal on booking.com, but all was good for the price. Room had been recently decorated. Handy location for Albert Hall, Hyde park and the big museums. No major complaints, but needed the windows to open more to get air into the room.

This hotel is quite a find. Its got everything you need - the room I had was very large by London standards and well equipped. Staff were warm and friendly. A glass of wine in the bar was only £4.50 - it was good quality - which is very reasonable for central London. Breakfast was pretty good although the room...

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.
