Indagare Loves

  • Feels like staying in a friend’s townhouse, not a hotel
  • Romantic canopy beds and period photographs
  • Convenient location just off Old Brompton Road


All of the rooms are furnished with antiques that are in keeping with the 19th century history of the building. Most of the double rooms feature canopy or four-poster beds and Bennison fabrics, brass lamps and period photographs or prints that set the homey English tone. The single rooms with twin beds are popular with long-term guests who relish the feeling that they are staying in an elegant friend’s spare room, and they actually feel less sterile than some of the double rooms, which have a slightly austere quality. Modern technology such as internet access, LCD TVs and internet access have all been added but the interiors remain English traditional. There is no gym on-site but guests do have privileges at nearby health clubs.

Who Should Stay

Traditionalists who relish the feeling of staying in a proper townhouse in Kensington.

Who Should Not Stay

Those who expect the laid-on-thick luxuries of a grand, five-star hotel or who cringe at old-fashioned English interiors will be disappointed, as will those who want a hip scene.
