London accommodations

Which location is better for hotel accommodations:Nottin Hill Gate, Kensington or Knightbridge?

My husband and I are going to be in London for two days in February. We are looking for the best hotel location in London for an easy access to the most famous sights as we will not have much time.

This is a tough call, as all three areas are pretty central, but Knightsbridge moreso than the others - Kensington runs a close second.

Will you and Mr pdq be amenable to using the buses or tube to get around? If so, then you'll be fine in any of the three neighbourhoods. I prefer Kensington, but that's purely personal, not because it's 'better' than the others. Knightsbridge is a bit pricey, but for two days, why not splurge?

Which hotels are you thinking about?

pdq: Which famous sights were you planning to see? The locations you mentioned are all accessible by tube and/or bus to all parts of London. If you really want to be close to the London Eye, Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey, you might check out Marriott County Hall. Kensington is good for the Victoria & Albert Museum, the Science Museum and the Natural History Museum, and Knightsbridge is good for Harrods, Harvey Nichols and lots of designer shopping.

They're all so close, and transport so good (bus, tube or taxi) that it doesn't matter; the hotel should determine your stay; check out The official London tourist Board site 'Visitlondon' at visitlondon.com for a good accom. service; enjoy
