Spent 6 days and the location is great - 5 min walk (or less) to High Street Kensington subway station - which is then on same line as most of the museums and attractions. We booked a Club room when we booked the hotel online and then you got full breakfast included which else you needed to buy separately -...

2 hours after checking in and unpacking for a three nights stay, I was told to move room the next day because of a scheduled maintenance. Why didn't they book me for the proper room in the first place or warned ahead of time prior to handing over the keys?! Room 1282 had very spotty internet- poor for sending business...

This was our fourth or fifth visit to the hotel. We looked at some of the cheaper options but finally chose the Copthorne Tara again as we know that we will get good service, very efficient friendly staff, a pleasant room, excellent location and good value for money. We weren't disappointed, we were offered an upgrade on checking in and...

The hotel is clean and the rooms are very nice if you stay in the CLUB rooms. the use of the executive room for drinks and snacks is perfect if you are in London on business. the best part of the hotel is Charles Maw... excellent service and a charming host.

We reserved Tea for Two (which was a frustrating process, I had to call multiple times to get anyone to answer the restaurant phone and when I finally reached someone she seemed to not speak English well enough to understand me, so I had to call again and find someone else to take the reservation) for 1 pm. We showed...

Stayed in January on business. The hotel is very well located, in easy reach of the west end . It is very clean, comfortable and the staff are very helpful. I was very disappointed with the breakfast mainly because the cooked breakfast was stone cold and inedible! There was a wide selection on offer including Asian noodles and a continental...

In spite of some recent less than flattering reviews on Trip Advisor prior to our booking, we had a great stay. The Hotel was clean, the room was comfortable, the linen fresh and clean. The staff were helpful and courteous. Location could not be better, really close to the underground and Kensington High Street. We had a really good stay...

Stayed on a week end break. Excellent location adjacent South Kensington tube - shops, Kensington Gdns/ Hyde park, V &A, Natural History and Science museums, Albert Hall etc etc easy walking distance. Quiet location despite backing onto the tube line. Rooms and beds comfortable and staff friendly. Would definitely use again for a main London stay.

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.
