More Room Types

Set across three Victorian townhouses in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, the 4-star Cranley Hotel is an intimate property with only 39 rooms and a quintessentially English feel. Friendly staff greet guests with a welcome drink and deliver free baked treats to your room at turndown.

You'll be surrounded by some of London's most popular attractions -- Hyde Park, the Science Museum, the Royal Albert Hall and the Natural History Museum -- and there are numerous shopping opportunities and restaurants nearby.

There are two Tube stations within 10 minutes' walk: South Kensington and Gloucester Road, both of which connect to Piccadilly Circus, Leicester Square and the theatres of the West End in 15 minutes.

The bedrooms are a good size, with high ceilings, huge windows and antique furniture. Some bathrooms are a tad small (not uncommon in London's historical buildings). Superior Rooms feature handmade queen-sized canopied beds, while Executive Rooms offer king Beaudesert beds. Wi-Fi is free, DVD players are available on request and there are umbrellas to borrow when the weather takes a decidedly British turn.

In the evenings, retire to the pretty lounge for a complimentary glass of bubbly and canapés (7-8pm). Guests can snuggle up by an open fire here in winter. There is no restaurant on site but there's an honesty bar in the lounge and 24-hour room service is available. Breakfast can be taken in the lobby, or in bed at no extra charge.
