This hotel is not the ritz, but for this price in the heart of chelsea you absolutely can not complain. The host was so accommodating, friendly - much more than I was expecting. The bed was super comfortable and my room was quiet, despite being on a roadside. I didn't wake once! Shower was hot, room was clean, loads of... More

Thank you very much for taking the time and trouble to write this lovely review. As you say we are not a Chelsea Boutique Hotel but I do work hard to make sure my guests have a comfortable stay. We have a lot of returning guests. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and I hope to see you again soon. More

Very good location in Chelsea, and reasonably easy to find. Parking is an utter nightmare (see tips below for good overnight spot) The room was a dated conversion with only the very basics for a 1 night stay. Comfortable bed, good TV, en suite shower and very quiet. No tea/coffee, toiletries etc. A good bolt hole to return to after... More

Thank for taking the time to write a review. I agree we are a budget hotel set in an extremely expensive area and are definitely not a posh Chelsea Boutique Hotel. I would like to point out we do provide 24 hour free tea and coffee in the guests kitchen and apologise if this was not pointed out to you... More

Great location for this budget hotel in a lovely area of London. Clean rooms and a brilliant breakfast. And thank you to Kate for her friendly help in finding our way around London. Will come again a real find!

The location is fantastic, right in heart of London and the staff were very friendly and helpful. I have stayed at the Oakley a few times and I wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else when I am in London. The breakfast is fantastic and a good excuse to get up and not sleep in through the holiday. I have recommended... More

I stayed with my daughter at this hotel. Upon arrival, our room was adequate. However, there was no bar soap in the bathroom (only hand washing soap), 2 ratty towels in the bathroom, and no wash cloth even provided. Just adding a few inexpensive basics would have made this a much nicer stay. Shampoo, conditioner (in travel sizes) and bar... More

This review is for the same stay as the review below. Please see my response there. I do provide the basics for a budget hotel stay. We are not a luxury hotel but provide comfortable, cheap accommodation in the most expensive area in London. I have never been provided with washcloths in a budget hotel in the UK but I... More

We were disappointed in this hotel after having found it in a French guidebook. Our room was dirty. No shampoo was provided. We didn't have Wifi access in our room. The cable for the TV in our room did not work either. The neighborhood is very charming, though (keep in mind that the hotel is about a 10-minute bus ride... More

I am sorry to hear you were disappointed in my hotel. I take my guests’ comfort seriously and we have many guests who return again and again. I do stress the importance of cleanliness to my staff and the rooms are cleaned daily and are spring cleaned regularly. The staff would have willingly cleaned the room if they had been... More

We enjoyed out stay at Oakley Hotel, mainly because we were able to stay in such a fabulous area - without the cost of a modern boutique hotel. It is definitely more of a Budget Hotel, as it is situated in an older, non-modernised building, but we enjoyed its old worldly charm and the great (free) breakfasts! From our personal... More

We have stayed here twice in the last 6 years, why? It is clean, very centrally located near transport and does not cost the earth. An excellent breakfast is included in the price and you can use the kitchen if you clean up after yourself. The rooms are a tad shabby in places with excentric renovations to a Victorian terrace...

Early in May, my wife and I returned to the Oakley Hotel on Oakley St. for a 2 1/2 week stay, our 4th visit in 12 years. The Oakley offers unbeatable value and a great location in the heart of Chelsea. This upscale, desirable area of London has great shopping, restaurants and pubs on nearby King's Road. Chelsea is well... More

Staying at the Oakley was one of the highlights of my trip to London. My Europe holiday started and finished in London and both times I stayed at Oakley.
