Interesting building, central location, near Tube stations, museums, cafes and restaurants. I was not sure what to expect when I booked as I have heard that Meininger is like a chain of hostels but actually what I fould was a modern hotel, with young, friendly staff, in a central location (but it was fairly quiet in the room). The room...

I've stayed here and Wombats in the East of London. I preferred the area here but the hostel itself was a disappointment. Unlike at Wombats rooms here have no individual lights for each bed so other people get annoyed when you come in after drinking late. Also this place is massive. It feels a little impersonal. It's good to have...

The hostel has an Amazing Location and is really cosy. Has an open area to socialise or have some drinks and chat. The man at the Reception had a rude attitude. No individual lightings at the beds but the amenities were fine and comfortable for a short stay. Value for money. Would Highly Recommend.

Just wanted a simple place to recover from the flight to London before continuing travelling. Had a nice private room with bathroom. Good and clean. Good location. Staff were very friendly and helpful. If you take taxi have the physical address as when I said Meinniger cab driver did not know where it was.

Great for a one or two night stay in London. Right next to the museums and Albert Hall. Tube stations close, eateries and shops. Room was clean and modern, had a nice view down Cromwell Road but was noisy with car traffic as a Saturday night... I think they have quieter rooms you can request. If you like two pillows...

We stayed here for one night during half term to see the sights. Perfect location being opposite the National History Museum and 3/4 minutes from the nearest tube stations. Very clean, modern rooms. Nice bathroom too. Didn't eat here but the breakfast room looked full. Only downside was hearing the traffic at night, but nothing unusual being in central London...

The hostel was out of wifi for two days, so I had to walk to a near BK or Starbucks to get some Internet, that didn't go really well. The plugs in my room weren't working and they took too long to fix it, so I had to keep going to the reception to charge my phone. Breakfast was OK,...

I stayed one night in the 12 bed dorm. Room was pretty crowded with bunk beds but clean and had two bathrooms. Bed was comfortable and had an individual light, a little ledge for your stuff (love) with a charger and a locker under the bed opened with your key card. The bathroom was small but clean with soap galore...

The Meininger is in a fantastic location in the heart of South Kensington, a upper class area with great restaurants and fun people watching. The hotel is close to a tube stop that connects easily to most of the sights London has to offer. I stayed in the hostel portion of the hotel on the upper floors. The place was...

I would first just like to thank the lovely long haired blonde lady in the reception for helping me out (sorry I did not get your name). I'm six months pregnant and arrived before my group of friends, just needing a shower and sit down she kindly helped me out very much and I really appreciate that. You definitely made...

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.
