I spent 5 nights recently at this lovely Firmdale a Hotel in South Kensington. It has a comfortable English home vibe and a peaceful courtyard garden for guests. Rooms are beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean, and have everything one might need. Staff was personal and always obliging with getting taxis, making reservations and storing luggage. Although rates are not cheap, they are reasonable in light of the superb location and quality of this jewel of a hotel. My only quibble is that waitstaff might benefit from an extra pair of hands or two during the breakfast rush. Having said that, I definitely would return. Next time I will book a room on the street side with a balcony, as traffic is quite limited and the street itself is very quiet.
