The Pelham Hotel

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Great place to stay. Close to transportation, amazing restaurants, museums. Room was small but very quiet and comfortable. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. Enjoyed our visit here very much!

I almost always book The Pelham and last weekend was no exception. I stayed 3 nights, enjoyed lovely breakfasts and the staff are excellent. Loved my stylish and super comfy room with music and soft lighting fab towels sheets and bathrobes. Slept soundly despite being on the main road - there was silence in the room. The Pelham is just across the road from South Ken tube station -- so handy. And just a walk around the area into Chelsea, Knightsbrige, and the museums. I'll be back soon again.

August 11 - 15, 2017. Mixed feelings. The service in the hotel and the restaurant is excellent. Very nice people, mostly Italians who speak English well. Breakfast and dinner in the restaurant are very good as well. The hotel is in an older building that recently has been renovated, but with narrow hallways, a very small elevator, and rather noisy rooms. We could hear people talk in the adjacent rooms and in the hallway. The first night we had a hard time sleeping because of doors slamming late at night. The room was very clean and the bed comfortable. The bathroom was a little tight. The location is only good if you plan to use the subway, because that's right across the street. Some hop on hop off tours stop nearby as well, but they are hard to find. Hyde park and the famous Harrods store are at walking distance. But a walk to downtown is quite far.

Really great location right across from the tub stop and a block from several museums. Our room was a bit dated but clean. The shower setup was odd. The little glass screen does not stop water from getting all over the bathroom floor. Very nice staff. The breakfast each morning was wonderful!

This is a great hotel - opposite South Kensington tube station, Harrods, museums etc. Staff are excellent - super helpful - great value for money! Rooms are generous in size particularly for London. Lots of restaurants ride outside the door. Close to Kensington High Street for shopping.

We booked here as it's very local to The Albert Hall where we attended the Proms. We were sadly disappointed with the hotel although the location for the tube and the Proms was great. So what disappointed us- lack of information on the hotel itself, no offer of papers, no tea and coffee facilities in the room, one complimentary bottle of water between the two of us, poor access in and out the shower, no extractor fan in the bathroom so it completely steams up, wardrobe door doesn't open fully so difficult to get clothes in and out and extremely poor signage to get from our room to reception ( I dread to think what would happen in the event of a fire) On a positive, it's quiet, the bed was comfortable and the room was clean ( although it should be for the price we paid for our room) We have stayed all over London and would struggle to recommend this hotel.

Stayed at one of my regular London hotels and it's got a new genuine Italian restaurant! Simple tasty food served in a fun relaxed way. I ate the Burrata as starter - was yummy! Then had the Amatriciana pasta served piping hot at the table (shaken like a cocktail) dessert my favourite Sicilian Cannolo. My waiter - Marco - was a true character and very knowledgable about the food. As ever my bedroom the staff and my sleep were great!

I visited in late December and very much enjoyed my stay at the Pelham. We had a suite and it was large and nicely decorated with a very nice bathroom. We loved having the tube right across the street and so many things within walking distance. We'll definitely stay again!

We came to London in January via Iceland, expecting to spend a day or two and then venture out to Scotland and Northern England, but the Pelham won us over with its comfortable room, fabulous breakfast, attentive staff and easy convenience to the Tube, shopping, and museums. We ended up spending our whole week in London and loved every minute. We will returning and the Pelham will be our first choice!

We stayed here in a recent trip to London for the Chelsea Flower Show. The location is very convenient, walking distance to nice restaurants and Harrods. On a very warm day when we arrived it was lovely to have icy water available at reception. The rooms we had (deluxe) were very comfortable and I had the best night's sleep I've had in a long time. The only suggestion I would have is that in the bathroom where the shower is in the bath there is no grab rail to help when getting out. The towel rail at the end of the bath is heated and too hot to hold on to. Would definitely go back if looking to treat myself to a nice hotel in London in the future.
