It is the coolest hotel in London, walking distance to anywhere! Located at a quiet street! The design is a WOW! The breakfast was so impressive, even the eggs were carefully selected, the level of details is second to none! Well done!

The hotel was ideally located for us in South Kensington. The iconic black exterior continues into the lobby and the rooms, the darkness offset by gold trimmings and the cheerful welcome of the parrots in the lobby. Our room was large with king bed and large bathroom. We had a small balcony and lots of sunlight. The finishings were of...

I started staying here on my frequent trips to London. The service is spectacular. The restaurant is also very special.

This is a gem of a place... if you want to experience true London this is the perfect boutique hotel to go to. Nestled amongst residential homes, it would be easy not to see that it is a hotel.

While I was not picking up the bill, I was quite impressed with the prices. They were reassuringly expensive, but a long way from eye-watering. The beef carpaccio was very good and the veal excellent. I thoroughly enjoyed the meal and the ambience. You will be amazed how many chips you get for £5! It was ideal for a business...

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.
