It's a short Underground ride to the main attractions in the centre and Harrods and the South Kensington museums are within walking distance of most hotels.


All hotels you can easily escape the hotels for breakfast, ATMs, coffee shops, pubs and convenience shops abound. Unusually there are some large supermarkets, not the usual convenience outlets found in most hotel districts.
