The Exhibitionist Hotel

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We were going to see Phil Collins in concert and we would normally stay in a traditional hotel but this time we decided to try something more fun and contemporary. What a good choice. The hotel was well decorated and quirky and cool. Or as our son would say sick. Our initial room was nicely decorated and clean and tidy but small. So we paid a fair rate for an upgrade and the suite was amazing. The menu could do with being a bit more extensive but breakfast was very nice. Monica and the staff were very helpful and friendly and we couldn't recommend this hotel enough. I am sure we will go back. Thank you for a nice stay. The Jeffries

I arrived at the exhibitionist not really knowing what to expect , I normally stay in Kensington near there but never here before , I was really surprised lovely hotel , check in for me was quick although I was early looking at check in when I was sat in the bar it looked busy and people were waiting , I had booked a superior room with balcony , which was London standards was a huge room and fantastic large bathroom also , great bed , only disappointing for me was the balcony had 3 air con units behind it which were noisy so sadly not great , Luckily there was a art exhibition on the night I stayed so I popped down for a look around and a chat , an extra benefit Overall good hotel nice friendly bar , good nibbles in there also Big room trendy artwork and quirky features ,fantastic location not far from the buzz of the bars and places to eat and of course South Kensington tube , Will I stay again I think I would , cool and trendy Good work folks and great staff

Loved this hotel, great location, few minutes walk from the Tube station, stayed for one night, amazing decor and a great size room, the breakfast was lovely. Lounge area was great to sit and get work done, it a trendy bar, love the art around the ground floor. So different to any where I have ever stayed. Thanks again Clare. We will be back.

From the moment we arrived we were treated with an excellent welcome from the guy on reception. He was polite and was very helpful in providing information on the area. Our room was immaculate. I love quirky and this hotel ticks all the boxes. Lovely little touches in the room. Biscuits and crisps and water all complimentary. A lovely room attendant knocked and asked if we had everything we needed and gave us chocolate. All the staff were extremely attentive and friendly. Had a lovely chat with Darren the bar manager and his assistant who made the most gorgeous tasting porn star martini with a twist! We ate in the bar and the burgers were great! Cooked to your own taste. One of the loveliest hotels we have stayed in. Made to feel very welcome. We will be back hopefully to try out one of the splash suites!!

We stayed for a might with friends and stayed in the 2 room apartment over the road from the main hotel. Apartment had clearly just been refurbished and was immaculate, well equipped kitchen, decent sized rooms with enough distance and privacy for 2 couples. Lounge was a great area to sit and have some drinks etc before hitting the town. Main hotel had some very cool art features and a very trendy bar/ reception area. I would easily rated this a 5 star experience had it not been for the very negative check in process. You have to go through a 2 page ‘disclaimer’form, tick each item and then sign. Additionally, each guest is expected to have photo ID with them, which if you’re traveling domestically, not something everyone carries with them. I’ve stayed in too many hotels in my life for work, pleasure etc and this was a uniquely negative experience. Sort it out and I’ll be back every time 😎

We have just returned from this beautiful hotel, we was fortunate enough to of booked and stayed in the penthouse. All I can say is wow!! Stunning room, had great weather to enjoy the roof top balcony, staff was friendly, great location, will definitely return! My only fault was with the breakfast, do not bother, Luke warm and tasteless! Everything else GREAT!

if you haven't stayed there yet you should! Went for a special occasion and everything was great. The service the staff the room. It's a little gem. Makes you forget you're in the big city. Give it a try

I have had the pleasure of staying at the Exhibitionist the last few days (I fly back to Stockholm tomorrow) and I could not wait to write a review about this hotel. The staff has just been amazing. They have gone above and beyond to make my business trip a joy. The South Kensington area is beautiful, the hotel is close to everything and I have truly felt at home. I would love to thank George, Melina and Azer for being the friendliest and most caring hotel staff of probably any hotel I have ever stayed at. You guys truly make the difference. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I will be recommending this property to everyone flying in to London. SUPERB!

We stayed in the ‘Trash city’ room and loved it! Huge bed really good shower nice little balcony! Could hear running water in the bathroom the whole time was the only negative for us. Coffee machine in the room and really cool room overall! Would recommend

I had booked a "fully flexible" rate room at this hotel, knowing that due to business commitments it was likely to have to change. I called the hotel first thing on the morning of the booking to move (not cancel) the booking and was told that they needed 72 hours notice. This does not constitute 'flexible' to me, nor does it justify the higher rate I agreed to pay when booking a flexible rate! I contacted the hotel via phone and email, I have had no response at all, only an email to ask me to review my stay on Trip Advisor - so here I am!
