South Kensington Lodging

Jump to last reply

My husband, daughter and I are visiting London in June for 6 nights. We have booked an apartment at the Morgan in Bloomsbury for six nights. We will then be going to Spain for a week, where my daughter will be staying for two weeks and we will stay about a week.

I would like to add 3 nights to the front end of our trip and possibly stay in the South Kensington area. We want to try a new area and spend some real time at the 3 museums.
I have read many reviews of hotels in the South Ken area, such as the Regency or the Premier Inn at Earl's Court. I would like to spend a little less than the Morgan's 235 pounds a night and still have a modicum of comfort.

I have thought about renting a flat and just haven't found one in an area that i like as much as Bloomsbury. Our plans this trip include Hampton Court and possibly a day trip to to Cambridge.

We love the location of the Morgan, sitting outside the Museum Tavern, walking to the Perseverance, being around the corner from the BM. I'm just wondering if I'm shortsighted about not renting a flat or missing a good place to stay in South Kensington.

Any recommendations for South Kensington?

Thank you.
