Imperial College London
7.8 / 10 Overall Satisfaction
(based on 49 ratings in 2018)
In a few words
"South Kensington is a nice area. It's home to the Royal Albert Hall and a few museums. The university is in quite a convenient location and is close to means of transport and shops etc. I stayed in Pembridge Gardens for my first year. It's in a great location near Notting Hill Gate and close to many shops as well as Hyde Park. Getting to university from Pembridge Gardens takes about 20 minutes by bus or a nice 30 minute walk through Hyde Park. The accommodation isn't the best but it is good value for money."
