South Kensington features delightful little restaurants, world-class museums, and boutique shops. It’s also home to the largest concentration of French nationals, meaning you don’t need to go far to see venues like the Institut Francais, Cine Lumiere, and the French Consulate. Surrounding these sites, you’ll find colourful bistros, patisseries, and cafes.
But beyond the French appeal, South Kensington’s culture is beyond reproach with the V&A Museum, the world’s largest museum of decorative arts and design, found right in the centre. Restaurants such as Margaux offer good old wines, characteristic of South Kensington.

On a visit abroad, time is limited; a hotel in Paddington makes enjoying some of the best attractions easy to do by foot. It could be argued that since South Kensington, is such a lovely district, doesn’t it make sense to book one’s stay in the area? On one hand that would make sense, yet the greater affordable options in Paddington, along with its closer reach to places like Trafalgar Square, make Paddington the better choice.
