"Hotels in South Kensington, Central London"

 

Hotels in South Kensington are mainly catering for the mid to high end visitor and on average are classed as 4 star.  This is due to its superb location within central London with excellent travel links, museums, shopping areas and eating places.

 

Some South Kensington Hotels with the best user reviews include:

 

The 5 star Baglioni Hotel (60 Hyde Park Gate, London, SW7 5BB). This highly rated classically styled deluxe hotel is on the very border of Hyde Park close to the Royal Albert Hall.

 

The best rated 4 star hotel is the Cranley Hotel (10 Bina Gardens, London, SW5 0LA).  This is in the very south of the area close to Old Brompton Road and Gloucester Road Tube Station.  It is a classical townhouse hotel where service is paramount.

 

One of the largest hotels in London is the Holiday Inn Kensington Forum (97 Cromwell Road,London, SW7 4DN).  This  modern 4 star is in a prime location and has the advantage of escaping the road noise due to its high rise construction.

 

South Kensington is also the location of the, new in 2013, Xenia Hotel (160 Cromwell Road, London, SW5 0TL). Located right on Cromwell Road it is only a few  minutes walk from both Gloucester Road Tube Station and Earls Court Tube Station.

 

"About South Kensington"

 

South Kensington is located in the Royal Borough of Kensington ad Chelsea. It is a very desirable residential area, with some of the most expensive real estate in London. This is largely because South Kensington's streets are lined with neat rows of stunning Victorian town houses interspersed with some of London's best attractions. 

 

The reason why South Kensington is such a picturesque area is because it developed quickly after the Great Exhibition in 1851, a spectacular event in Hyde Park, which showcased the best of Britain's modern industrial technology and design. It was attended by half the population of the UK, including notable London residents such as Charles Darwin and Lewis Carroll, and when many of the exhibits were appended to smaller permanent collections in collections which would later form The Natural History Museum and The Victoria & Albert Museum, the area developed from an agricultural area into the centre of cultural and scientific appreciation and education it still is today. Town houses were built to accommodate people eager to live in such a fashionable neighbourhood and as it developed so quickly, South Kensington lacks the eclecticism some London architecture demonstrates.

 

Although the Great Exhibition and the Victorian era are long finished, their legacy remains strong in the area and it is a paean to their thirst for knowledge. The Natural History, Science and Victoria & Albert Museums all have astounding collections, events and educational programs, housed in stunning architecture, which attract thousands of visitors each year. The Royal Albert Hall showcases thought-provoking talks and mind-bending musical performances, The Albert Memorial pays homage to the much beloved consort himself and Kensington Palace, where Queen Victoria was born is close by on Kensington High Street. 

 

With the Imperial College campus, the world-renowned Lycee Francais, the Royal College of Music and the Royal College of Art all located in and around the area, it also maintains its reputation as a centre of learning and education. However, Kensington also contains some rather exclusive shops. ranging from high street brands like Topshop, to department stores like Harrods and Harvey Nichols, alongside reputable independent boutiques offering luxury goods and services such as bra shop to the Queen, Rigby & Peller, and furniture store Skandium. There are also very up market bars such as Boujis and Babylon at The Roof Gardens, which are frequented by celebrities and young royals alike. There are also many fantastic restaurants in the area, ranging from chains such as Giraffe and Zizzis, to fine dining at Pasha and 1880 at the Bentley. 

 

South Kensington is a great base for a visit to London, not just for its attractions, shops, restaurants and bars, but it also enjoys fantastic transport links. South Kensington and Gloucester Road tube stations both service the District, Circle and Piccadilly lines, which not only gives visitors direct access to all the terminals of Heathrow Airport, but offers a direct link to Victoria Station, where the Gatwick Express terminates and King's Cross St Pancras, where the Eurostar terminus is located. From here you have access to all other central London districts, so you can easily reach Oxford Circus, Soho, Chinatown, Trafalgar Square, Tower Bridge and the City of London.
