Local Attractions

The Bailey's Hotel is located in the fashionable district of South Kensington. It is a lovely and quiet residential area, from which you can get to beautiful Hyde Park in about 10 minutes. If you feel like doing some shopping, you can be at Kensington High Street in 15 minutes and world-famous Harrods and Harvey Nichols in 20 minutes. Do not miss the chance to pop into the Natural History and Victoria & Albert museums on your way there. If you want to enjoy London's amazing cultural life, a 10 minute stroll will take you to the Royal Albert Hall, one of the city's most spectacular venues. We are also 10 minutes away from cool Chelsea and its many shops and restaurants. You can also catch the underground to get to London's most famous tourist spots in 10 minutes, the same amount of time that will take you to get to vibrant Soho and Covent Garden if you feel like partying the night away.

Verified Reviews of The Bailey's Hotel

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Very Nice Rooms, Excellent Staff, Super Location."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
My first stay with a large group of friends and hopefully not my last.
(Group coordinator, booked 15 rooms), from US flag
01-Aug-2015 Verified Review, stayed from Wed Jul 29 to Sat Aug 01 2015 at a £140.00 group rate.
"Good Location. Terrible Smell!"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The hotel is well located, a few steps from the underground and the bus stop. Convenient stores and a few restaurants just across the street. The staff is friendly in general. However, there is this terrible smell near the elevators and that sneaks into the rooms.
(Group coordinator, booked 11 rooms), from US flag
23-Feb-2015 Verified Review, stayed from Wed Feb 18 to Sun Feb 22 2015 at a £100.00 group rate.
Response from Management on 26-Feb-2015:
Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay at The Bailey's Hotel. I am delighted to read that you enjoyed our location and local amenities, as well as our friendly staff service. I am however sorry to note that you picked up on an unpleasant odor. This is certainly unusual and has not been reported before. If you would like to contact me directly, I would welcome the opportunity to discuss and investigate the particular area/floor in question. I look forward to hearing from you, and hope we can welcome you back to the hotel in the future.

Property Description

The Bailey's Hotel, an iconic Victorian housetown hotel located in the heart of South Kensington, characterises itself by a distinctive sense of sophistication and style. Opened in 1876, this impressive property is steeped in history full of character, contemporary comforts, and amenities with quintessential English décor and charm throughout. With our recently completed £7.5M renovation, the Victorian era has been re-born with turn of the century stories of London, featuring four key areas of the capital: City Gent; Henley-on-Thames; Kew Gardens; and South Kensington and the Great Exhibition. Our hotel is ideal for all types of travel. Business and short-term travellers love our Classic Single guest rooms, due to their combination of practicality and confort. For those looking for more space, our Classic Double guest rooms are a fantastic choice, as they are the perfect escape after a long day of meetings or sightseeing through the capital city. For those looking to store plenty of bags after a long shopping day, our Deluxe guest rooms are a great option. We offer them with twin, queen, and king-size bed options. If you would like to take your stay to the next level, consider upgrading into one of our Luxury guest rooms and enjoy additional space, luxury bathrobes, a sitting area with a larger TV and access to The Bailey's Lounge, included buffet breakfast and complimentary Wi-Fi. In a city like London, travelling with family can be a bit of a burden due to space limitation. Not so at The Bailey's Hotel. Our Luxury Family guest rooms offer added space for everyone and include access to The Bailey's Lounge, included buffet breakfast and complimentary Wi-Fi. If you are travelling with children, why not experience our Ask Alfred Children's Concierge package. Treating yourself to one of our Junior/Studio Suites is more affordable than you think. Our custom designed suites include hardwood floors, sitting area and a Victorian design bathroom, as well as a Senseo coffee machine, Sky television, heated bathroom flooring, and access to The Bailey's Club Lounge, included buffet breakfast and complimentary Wi-Fi. Our two exclusive penthouse Signature Suites are quintessentially English in décor and style. Each suite has been carefully designed with detail and attention to each area – a private bedroom, sitting area with 55-inch TV, luxurious free-standing bath and additional bathroom with his/her vanities and a walk-in shower. All in addition to the amenities of the Junior Suites. Our Doormen, Concierge and Reception teams are here to welcome and assist you throughout your stay. From transportation to theatre tickets, they will spare no efforts in making the guest happy. Our Lounge offers the perfect alternative to relaxing in your guest room. The Lounge is open to all guests staying in our Luxury guest rooms, Junior Suites or Signature Suites. Guests can enjoy complimentary fresh fruit, snacks, non-alcoholic drinks, tea, coffee and espresso, in addition to a variety of magazines and international newspapers. The lounge opens daily, from 8am to 8pm. Enjoy the best Italian cuisine at Olives Restaurant, in a warm and charming atmosphere. The menu combines fresh flavours and offers guests the ultimate escape to Italy in the heart of South Kensington. Our bar menu offers a wide selection of premium drinks and cocktails and a range of Italian classics, including the signature Bellini, fine wines, Prosecco, as well as over fifteen martinis – perfect for both pre- and post-theatre drinks. Guests can also enjoy a variety of Italian antipasti in an elegant environment. Olives is a popular lunchtime meeting place, a quintessential setting for traditional Afternoon English Tea, and an ideal setting for a classic Italian dinner. Millenium Gloucester Hotel, our sister property next door, has 11 meeting, event and boardrooms, and flexible meeting space which can accommodate up to 80 (U-shape); 100 (boardroom); 300 (classroom/cabaret); 400 (dinner/dance/banquet); 500 (theatre); and 600 (reception). Contact our dedicated Meeting and Events team for your next London event.
