I have stayed in this hotel on many occasions .I love the quiet position but within easy reach of the main High Street shops, the Underground, restaurants, Kensington Gardens, the Royal Albert Hall etc. There are several eating places in the hotel as well as a snack area and shop. The staff are efficient and helpful. The rooms are large,...

Great location for Kensington/Chealsea/Nottinghill. A tube or bus ride to Central London but still not too far away. Easy and reasonable price for parking for London if staying here, made it very simple for us. Clean, comfortable, well priced considering the location. Decor was a bit dated, but well maintained. Would have appreicated fresh bottled water daily. Courteous and helpful...

My wife and I stayed at the Tara Copthorne for 7 nights over the New Years period. We thoroughly enjoyed the stay in our 11th floor Club Room. The location of the hotel is excellent being only a few minutes walk from the High Street Kensington tube station, close to the Hop On Hop Off bus service and a plethora...

We booked here last minute. The room was dated and looked like it could really do with some work and updating (skirting board hanging off in places etc) but it was clean. Staff were pleasant and polite. Room was quiet. If you need a quick place to stay centrally with parking this is fine. You will not be wowed with...

On first impression this hotel seems pretty good but scratch the surface and cracks appear. Main gripe is the wifi. Offered free (as it should be in all hotels without fanfare) it doesn't work. Signal strength poor which means speed is awful and the connection drops every few minutes. I tried working in my room but it wasn't possible. Second...

The good: the hotel has been refurbished, the rooms are fairly large (for the price), the location is good and there are blackout curtains (important in the summer.) The bad: the hotel attracts LOTS of tours and flight crews. We counted five tour buses waiting to load on a Sunday morning. That morning, three of the five elevators were shut...

The hotel is well located and upgraded to a decent room. Reception staff friendly and helpful. However, it all went seriously down hill when I went to the bar...all the ales (1) and lagers (numerous) were from Heineken owned breweries, ghastly selection. I won't be back.

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.
