High standards of IHG! Amazing lobby area with Starbucks and bar in-house! Room was a little bit small but was fine for the two nights that we needed! Great location walking distance in the nice neighborhood of Chelsea, close to the underground!

Clean and tidy and does what you would expect but the rooms are so small it is ridiculous! For the money and it's not cheap I'd expect more. Didn't try breakfast as at 17 a head one can go elsewhere!!

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

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.
