    Excellent all round service.

    I liked the location of the hotel - close to underground; the lounge area, the cleanliness of the room and the reception service.

    The room was comfortable but very small.

    The hotel offers great value for a decent prize.

    The rooms were very clean, the staff were extemely nice and helpful and the location was grear

    There were some very loud noises every morning, not sure what they were from but constantly woke us up

  • Single

    I was unhappy with the original room allocated and they kindly moved me to a superior room

    It wasn't pointed out at time of booking that the leisure facilities were extra at £8 per day. This is a fault with both Booked.net & the hotel themselves however i created enough fuss to get to use the facilities at no extra charge.

    Near to tube and Kensington High Street,never had time to use spa but would use this hotel again for location

    Room was a bit poky and bathroom could do with upgrading but very clean! Hotel bar was overpriced

  • Single
    10.0

    I think it is an excellent value hotel in a sensational location that is safe, clean and friendly, and also close to many good tourist spots, including museums, shopping, some grat bars including the Builders Arms, and as an added bonus the number 9 bus that takes a short but spectacular trip into the West End, stops right on the high street only a short walk away.

    I left my lap top computer power cord in my hotel room, room 411, last weekend when I stayed there, and as yet no-one has contacted me to let me know if it can be returned. I obviously need to use my lap top very soon.

    All good, room was tiny though!

  • Single
    7.4

    The location was good for me since I had friends nearby and the transport links were good. The inside looks much better than the outside.

    The bathroom and parts of the common areas looked a little tired. It also had the appearance of a large hostel from the outside.

  • Single
    4.6

    Virtually nothing apart from the location which is very handy to shopping and the tube station.

    All other reviews of this hotel are correct. It is more a 2 star hotel than a 4 star hotel. The room was shabby, run down and dirty. The side of the bath had fallen off and they had left that on the bathroom floor. A used shower cap was left in the bathroom. The shower did not work at all.

  • Group of friends
    7.4

    Staff friendly and helpful. Great location for exploring London

    I chose the hotel due to the fact it was a spa hotel and was therefore suprised and disapointed to have to pay extra to use these facilities.

  • Single
    9.2

    staff very polite and helpful

    i needed to print the tplane tickets and there were no printers avai;able and the only was that was there was broken, so i couldn t print anything

  • Single
    7.0

    Good facilities, close to tube

    Price for the gym, pool etc is very high and only covers 1 calendar day - so for a 1 night stay you would have to pay twice if you wanted a swim in the morning. I really resent being charged a 15% service charge (isnt it usually 10% elsewhere) on a drink I have gone to the bar and collected myself - again on top of a very high price. Breakfast very slow entering due to a queue and too keen to clear - took away unfinished coffee, juice and untouched food while I went for toast less than 5 minutes after I was shown to the table.

  • Older travelers

    It was quite comfortable. Hotel locate in a good and calm area. Stuff works very operative and room cleaning has a very high level.
