Hotel The Cranley - London

4 star Hotel London

10 Bina Gardens South Kensington - London

Price starting from £ 168.20
Situated in a quiet street in the heart of South Kensington, The Cranley Hotel is one of London's most charming boutique properties! This luxury 4-star hotel is an ideal city centre haven, appealing equally to the discerning business or leisure traveller.

The Cranley Hotel offers a wonderful central London location, just a short stroll from Gloucester Road underground station and close to South Kensington station, making getting around to the wonderful tourist attractions simple.

Furnished with wonderful antiques, the hotel has a elegant feel combined with a welcoming and comfortable atmosphere. The colours used throughout the bedrooms and reception areas - striking combinations of Chinese blue, mustard, plum and stone - are derived from the original 19th Century floor tiles which you will see in the entrance hall.

After a pleasant day seeing the sites of London, you can come back to a complimentary English afternoon tea of warm scones with cream, whilst in the evening you can help yourself to an aperitif and some canapés. Friendly helpful staff will be at your service, and can organise tours, theatre tickets, and airport transfers on request. Parking is available nearby at a surcharge.

The hotel is a small boutique hotel with lovely rooms, well appointed and generally friendly staff. We emailed a week before our arrival and asked for an upstairs room which was quiet. We did not get a responding email saying that the request was unreasonable. Nevertheless we were put into a room in the basement and below the reception area - room 504. The noise from people walking above us kept us awake until past midnight and later and woke us at 6am every morning.

This was our second stay at the hotel and the was quality remained unchanged, at excellent. Due to a family emergency we had to change our booking at the last minute and both the hotel and Venere were very accommodating and made the whole experience much less stressful. I cannot recommend both highly enough. Trevor Marks, Canada

We enjoyed being at The Cranley and felt very comfortable there. Excellent location and on a quiet street, yet close to the center. We certainly will consider the Cranley the next time we come to London.

We spent 3 great days in London. The Cranley was excellent except for the noise in the suite in the lower floor. We could hear constant knocking in the morning and foot steps from above at night. We moved to another floor and it was quiet and very lovely.

This is a great place to stay in London- very quite and nice if you want to get away from a typical hotel (chain). Very upscale- staff professional strives to exceed guest expectation! The room was a bit small however larger than most rooms in London. The value was excellent!

I stayed at the Cranley for one night on Valentines Day and was very pleased with the stay overall. We were offered a free glass of champagne and snacks each which could be served downstairs in the hotel or to our room. The staff were pleasant enough although not overley welcoming. The room was good and the bathroom was lovely, the bed was extremely comfortable. I would defintiely recommend this hotel if you are looking to stay somewhere comfortable and homely, rather than a huge hotel with lots of facilities
