We have stayed at this hotel several times over the last 10 years. We agree that the hotel is centrally located, convenient to tube stops, and several restaurants are within a few blocks. The lobby was staffed and clean. The noise on the street was quieter, as the local hostel visitors were less noisy than in previous visits. To add... More

We just returned from our trip around the UK, we had a great time. Staying in London at this place, nice area with plenty of restaurants in the area. Close to the tube. Room was very small and food just ok, the place needs some work

I felt safe walking in the area, although didn't spend too much time around. the room I stayed in, knew better days, and was badly maintained. the door for the bathroom was new, but was never painted - yes, you see the wood. 2 out...

We stayed at this hotel by default, as a hotel reservation we had booked through Expedia around the corner, was mishandled and was canceled. Imagine our surprise when arriving at that hotel and being told we had no room. Wimbeldon was being played and rooms everywhere were scare. The clerk at that hotel found online a room for us at...

A very nice hotel, near Kensington gardens, in a lively neighborhood. Very well located, quiet, clean, roomy, convenient. We slept in a four-persons bedroom and really enjoyed the space and view. Perfect location to discover London for a reasonable price. The staff was kind and always ready to answer our questions. The breakfast was a bit disappointing though.

Smallish bedroom for one person. Bathroom marginal making it very hard for a tall person when needing toilet. Bed was comfortable. However pillow wasnt changed from day to day and sheets. Despite that,fan was handy

Hotel is in a good location and has responsive and attentive staff (especially Gloria on reception who is extremely good). Room furnishings a little tired but nonetheless clean. The breakfast was good and overall it was a comfortable stay. I'd stay there again.

Stayed here for 3 nights, one adult and two children. Had spacious & clean triple room on top floor, with comfortable beds (double and a single - contrary to the info given on internet booking sites that implied you could choose 3 single beds, but I suspect that is the fault of the booking sites I looked at and not...
