Best Western Hotel South Kensington London
Housed in a five-floor building, the budget-friendly (compared to other hotels in the area) Best Western has a contemporary feel and a dash of style. The small lobby has white walls, hardwood floors, colorful art, leather sofas, and a flat-screen TV. Breakfast is served in a modern room with hardwood floors, and the lobby bar has a distinctive aquamarine-colored front. There's also a small fitness room. Given its location on Cromwell Road in South Kensington, the Best Western is best-suited to the tourist crowd. The hotel does have a meeting room, but it's not a great property for business travelers.

Simple but stylish rooms (many are small) with flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi
The Best Western's 85 rooms have a contemporary feel and a dash of style, incorporating hues of mauve, beige, olive green, and white. While some rooms are on the small side (at 120 square feet), all have free Wi-Fi and wall-mounted flat-screen TVs with satellite channels. Rooms come with desks, coffee/tea makers, and safes big enough to fit laptops. Some rooms have attractive garden terraces, each with a wood deck, a table, and chairs.
