Fabulous 8.6 From 304 reviews

Very Good 8.0
My stay was adequate. Although the location was near a couple of museums I wanted to visit, & staff was friendly, the actual accommodation was a bit lacking in that it was nothing as presented in the promo photos. Very,, very small. Not at all what was implied &/or expected. Parking is also quite a problem. Probably will not book again.

Six night stay at The Rockwell
Reception staff are friendly, knowledgeable and make you feel that you are family- which is valuable when you are traveling solo. Restaurant and bar staff are wonderful. They seem overworked but they never complain. Food and drink was great. The availability of dining in beautiful outside garden is a major plus. The location is fantastic with nearby interesting restaurants and Earl’s Court only a .6 miles away with an inviting small street and path access to Cromwell Road and hotel a few doors to left. Would stay there again anytime I am in London. Thanks to all the staff. And George is a treasure.

Convenient spot in S. Kensington
End of a 10 day trip to Scotland and England, it’s a very easy walk with luggage from Earl’s Court station. Reception was gracious, helpful. The room was clean, a little worn. King sized bed with a queen sized comforter but extra blankets and pillows available in the room. Dinner at the hotel one evening, meh: with so many restaurants near, eat out. Very convenient to train, 20 min walk to Natural History Museum and the incredible Victoria and Albert Museum. Kensington is a lovely area to base exploration from.
