We stayed for a week this September, a family of 4. We chose it first for its great location, but also because it looked nice from the photos and had good critics, too. When we arrived we found a spatious room wih two double beds and a spatious bathroom as well, exactly as depicted on the hotel photos from the...

For the hotel part, The bathroom is very odd. There is only half a glass door covering the bath tub so when you shower, water splashes everywhere onto the floor & toilet &...

My mother and twelve year old daughter and I stayed at the Crown Plaza Kensington two weeks ago for five nights. The rooms were clean, updated and very nice. They offer a full breakfast each morning with options such as eggs, various types or breads and pastries, cheeses, sliced meats, porridge, fruit, etc. The concierges went out of their way...

On the occasion of my daughter’s wedding we had a wonderful stay and of course a perfect day. The hotel is ideally situated, friendly and efficient staff, especially with our family brunch the following morning, the F&B manager and her staff bent over backwards to make the occasion very special and dealt majestically with that unpredictable English weather! Thank you...

Less than 5 min walk to circle line Gloucester road station. 10 min walk to Natural Museum (must visit, a modern Science Museum) and 20 min walk to Harrods. We have been to London many times but the hotel we stayed before is either far from the Tube station or far out of the Center. So this time I spent...

We stayed in this hotel for 5 nights over the last week of August, and could not have asked for better value.

This was our first stay after an overseas flight to London, and it was very enjoyable. The room was a decent size for London standards, and the fact that a family of 4 could be comfortably accommodated, makes this hotel a great choice. The location could not be better. The tube was right across the street, and lots of great...

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.

“My only criticism, there was no socket for the kettle in the area where the in room tea/coffee area situated. And the flex wasnt long enough for the kettle to sit on a table and reach the socket. Fine for me, I put it on the floor. Maybe a danger if young children in the room”

“The hotel is pretty quiet considering it is on a busy street. However noise can be heard in adjoining rooms. Try to get a room without a door that opens to the next room.”
