Perfect location. Large rooms with very comfy beds, just lacking some of the extra touches you would get with a 4* hotel.

Clean and wonderful location
As a family we love staying in South Kensington as it is super safe. This hotel is conveniently located just a long block away from Gloucester station with super access to the Piccadilly line. Hotel was clean, staff were friendly. Beds are firm. No frills but we the hotel was not our destination...the city of London was!

Excellent staff and location for a week-long stay
Staff was exceptionally friendly and always responded quickly to our needs. The location is excellent: short walk to the Gloucester Road Underground station and pleasant walk to Kensington Gardens. We had a triple room with three twin beds and never felt cramped. I would definitely recommend this hotel and stay here again in the future.
