Search for cheapest prices: 1 Lexham Gardens Hotel
LH Comment: Super area of central London with shops, restaurants and even a 24 hour superstore. The rooms are a compact size but for the price charged its a bargain in this posh part of South Kensington.
Very good for travel with two tube stations within easy reach.
You can walk through the Kensington Mews up to High Street Kensington in 10 minutes
We have stayed here and its recommended if on a budget. Our tip would be to request a room at the rear to avoid the noise from Cromwell Road.
About 1 Lexham Gardens Hotel
1 Lexham Gardens Hotel offers very reasonable accommodation in one of London's most affluent districts. Guests on a shoestring budget can stay in serviceable rooms in an elegant Edwardian building, and experience luxurious surroundings for less.

Decor is simple and functional, so this hotel is perhaps not the best choice for a romantic weekend or celebrating a very special occasion, but you can't argue with the combination of an extremely reasonable price for an exceedingly expensive location.
Rooms are clean and hotel staff are friendly and helpful and willing to make your stay a very pleasant one. The hotel is also located in a safe, residential side street, so you will feel welcome and at home from the minute you arrive.
