Arrived on Monday at around 7pm to be greeted by a huge queue to check in. Ended up standing in the line for 55 minutes before being seen by one of the 6 staff on duty. The process was slowed by numerous guests who returned to the desks as they were having problems accessing their rooms, or whose bookings could...

This is in a great location with good facilities and a good price. But standing in the heat for 45 minutes to check in was a total nightmare. The staff seemed quite inexperienced and as if they didn't really know what was going on. But if you can live with that, then its fine

Just a fabulous location in central London within walking distance of the heart of "touristy" style London. South Kensington Tube Station is about a 5 minute walk away and to walk to Buckingham Palace takes about 35 minutes.. The room itself is not like a typical hotel room, pretty small and with no TV. However it does have your typical...

Located right next to V&A Museum and nearby Hyde Park, Imperial College's Prince's Gardens offers a very affordable accommodation option in one of London's most expensive neighborhoods. It's only available to non-students during the summer months so it's ideal for a quick visit to London in these months. Rooms are quite small but have all what's necessary for a few...

The breakfast is very hearty and staff very helpful, as long as you are aware it student rooms so a bit small and mimilistic then you can't go wrong,...

Last september, I went to London with my school for a stage. We stayed at Imperial College and I have to say it's one of the most homey and comfortable places I have ever stayed in. We had a bit of a misunderstanding with the reception at first (they couldn't find the reservation, if I'm not wrong), but once we...

I have stayed at various Imperial College properties in and around Kensington and Knightsbridge. The rooms are available when the students are on summer holiday and represent FANTASTIC value. I have stayed at Beit Hall and another property in the same neighbourhood. The accomodation is literally a 5 minute walk from The Royal Albert Hall, Science Museum, Natural History Museum...

The hotel is located on very nice place. People at the reception are not at a level. People from AMOMA are very honest and helpful. It is pleasant to work with them. They called me on the phone to see if everything is okay.

Staying in Knightsbridge

Neighbourhood Profile
Knightsbridge
When millions of tourists want to shop 'til they drop, they do it along Brompton Road and its boutique-lined tributaries, including the world-renowned Harrods. And when millionaires want to flaunt what they've already got, many of them find Knightsbridge and Belgravia the perfect place to do so, often behind stately mansion walls or down quiet private mews. Delve beyond the ultra-luxe exterior and you'll find some of this city's cosiest pubs, quiet gardens, and all sorts of indie retailers and enterprises worth a short exercise in spontaneous window shopping. For those looking to take a break from shopping, Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, and some of the city's most popular museums are nearby.
