Location is great. It is very close to Underground (Subway/Metro) and it takes just several minutes to get to downtown and all attractions. Staff is very nice and helpful. We arrived around noon and thought that we will not get room until 2:00pm , which is official time for check-in. But room was ready and we checked-in. This never happens...

We wanted a hotel close to the Gloucester Road tube station and were very pleased with the Rydges. Our room was spacious (for London) and very nice. Everything was neat and tidy and very clean. The only gripe I have is the hot water pressure in the shower, but it was enough to get you clean. Staff were very friendly...

Nicely located only a block from the Gloucester tube stop, it's easy to reach coming from the airport. There are restaurants and stores within a 5 minute walk. The staff was very helpful and friendly and the hotel was very clean. Although the room was somewhat small it was well appointed. The continental breakfast was good and typical of many...

We stayed in this hotel for a week and loved every part of it. Beautiful rooms and public areas, helpful staff and reasonably priced! The rooms were small, but so are most hotel rooms; that is to be expected in London. We could not have asked for a better location, just steps from the Underground and near Tesco and several...

Reviewed 31 August 2015

Although the hotel has a fanstastic location and the staff were friendly, the rooms are extremely small for what they charged. I had found much better quality and comfort previously from the Millenium Glouceser which is nearby however as they were fully booked, we chose Rydges as a second choice. I was very disappointed indeed and definately wouldn't stay again.

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.
