Situated on the busy Cromwell Road, the Cromwell Hotel, London is convenient for much of London's public transport. It is also hard by South Kensington, the leafy district in which many of the capitals artistic and cultural treasures are held.
South Kensington itself has a long-lived cultural heritage, which dates back to when the first museums were established here, to form permanent homes for some of the exhibitions, which had been displayed at the Great Exhibition of 1851 in Hyde Park. These museums are still open today and attract thousands of visitors. The Natural History Museum, The Science Museum, and the Victoria & Albert all have incredible important collections, and are a must-see for anyone interested in biology, history, or science. The Royal Albert Hall, where the world-famous Proms concerts are held is also just a few minutes walk from the hotel. Shopping is also an attraction for this area, as are many of the larger department stores are nearby, and you are only one tube stop away from Harrods on Knightsbridge. The tube connections are perhaps the most attractive element, as this hotel is very close to the station, which offers a direct line to Heathrow, as well as into the centre of London’s West End.

There is free Wi-fi in all of the rooms and meeting areas, and this cannot be said for all of the more expensive hotels in the area, which often charge a supplement. There is a bar, a gym, and 24-hour room service. There is parking offered, but it is not at the same site as the hotel, and will be charged extra. The rooms include tea- and coffee-making facilities, an iron and ironing board, a television, hi-fi, and hairdryer, and all have an ensuite bathroom with toiletries.
Some guests have described the rooms as small, and some are in need of refurbishment, but most accept that they are kept clean, and contain all of the facilities one would expect from three-star accommodation. Many rooms have been recently renovated, and it is clear that this hotel offers value for money in a very desirable area.
