I chose this hotel because of its locality to the Royal Albert Hall (10 min walk) where we were going to see Eric Clapton. This is a beautiful hotel with lots of character and period features. We had a deluxe room which was very spacious and the bed was so comfortable, which was a joy after all the walking about...

I used some of my Radisson points for this stay in London and booked the Edwardian Vanderbilt for its location, thinking it would be a suitable hotel for few days in London. I'm not sure whether it was because we used points, or whether it was normal procedure but our room was the size of a postage stamp, and the...

Dear Guest Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback following your recent stay with us. I am disappointed to read that the room itself did not live up to your expectations. Being a non-purpose built hotel does mean our room sizes vary and our guests may find some of our rooms more spacious than others. We also have...

This hotel is the old London residence of the prestigious family of that name, and as other reviewers have remarked, it retains the narrow corridors and tiny lifts that one would expect in such an old building. I have no issue at all with that; the quaint period features are what made me choose this hotel over similarly priced ones...

Dear Lebeq, Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry that you felt 'mistreated' by the hotel team, although priority for the team is always to ensure guest safety which I am sure you will agree takes priority over any other service that we provide our guests. I hope you will return to the Vanderbilt for every other fantastic reason...

Stayed at this hotel for business for 6 days in March. It is a small boutique like hotel with very narrow hallways, tiny lifts and small rooms with single beds. Though I do understand this is much more common in this area as opposed to North American Standards. Check in was decent and the service was quite good overall. They...

Good location in a good area. Much in walking distance and close to the subway. "Typical" English hotel with narrow corridors and special rooms. Clean, neat and orderly. Lovely breakfast (if you choose the "full english breakfast). Competent and service minded staff. Personal service and have you lived there before will "remember you" in a nice way

Use oyster card to get around in the city. We used the underground from Gloucester Road, which was very easy. A little shopping and a nice pub is just around the corner. Perfect hotel, if you are visiting the museum.

We arrived late morning and didn't expect to be access our room until after mid-day, as is often the case in London hotels.

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.
