Travel reader tip: Rockwell hotel in an ideal London locale

Readers recommend: The Rockwell is a friendly, restful spot in South Kensington that's close to some choice London shopping and museums.

October 19, 2013

The Rockwell, in tranquil South Kensington, a block-and-a-half from the Earl's Court Tube station, is a great base camp in London. It's ideally suited for shopping, and Hyde Park and the Victoria and Albert Museum are near. The staff is professional but friendly. The 40 rooms are bright and restful with nice en suite bathrooms. There is a restaurant-bar where in clement weather guests dine at tables under umbrellas on the spacious private terrace. A crackling fire burns year-round in the reception area.

The Rockwell, 181-183 Cromwell Road; 011-44-20-7244 2000, http://www.therockwell.com. Doubles from about $135 a night.
