Excellent value for money, all of the top London attractions an easy journey away, and literally a 2 min walk from High Street Kensington. Service was good, rooms were perfectly adequate and breakfast was exactly what would be expected at any decent hotel. The reason for not giving 5 is only really around the evening menu, which was Singaporean/Chinese. We... More

Convenient location a short walk from High Kensington tube. Quiet location away from the main road, but the advantage of this is diminished if you get a room overlooking the railway tracks - the double-glazing is a bit dated and not as effective as it could be in keeping the sound out. Clean rooms, comfortable beds, efficient reception, good breakfast.... More

I have now stayed at the Copthorne Tara Hotel Kensington London frequently during this year.

The big building looks a bit like buildings in former Eastern European countries. When you enter the reception area, there are queues, for check in, for luggage, for elevators. The room had a bad smell of mildew, the room temperature was close to impossible to regulate, and the room was not very clean. After some re cleaning, it was ok.... More

We have stayed her several times over the years for our yearly Christmas trip to London. The location is excellent. The rooms are always clean, albeit very small.

I booked this as a weekend away for my husband's birthday, it was a disappointment to say the least. The room was very out-dated and drab, I booked it believing I was booking a room in a 4 star hotel, which at least the room I was staying in wasn't a 4 star hotel room.

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.
