Neighbourhood
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.

We were very pleasantly surprised at the 'feel' of the hotel as we arrived - liveried doormen and more of a luxurious feel to the reception areas than we had expected. The ground floor reception area is vast, thickly carpeted and well lit. There are...More

The outside of the hotel is amazing especially with the Christmas touch of the nutcracker soldiers stood outside. The room was lovely a tad small but considering where we were staying in London it’s understandable. The only issue with the room was the extractor fan...More

Pity because uber only charged us ten pounds for that same journey and that was in heavy traffic. A black cab could be up to 20 depending on traffic. No shuttle service as far as i know unfortunately.
