Lovely hotel, great location - around the corner from tube. I'd agree with the dark, warren like corridor comments. Also, I stayed in a single room the decor was plush, very crisp and clean although the room a tad small. Staff, very pleasant and helpful.

In my experience, Radisson generally has consistent properties and this was the case in booking two nights in London. We arrived early at Heathrow and had requested early check in, which was honored. The room was remarkably quiet and the bed comfortable which allowed for good sleeping. The staff at the front desk was attentive and helpful when we showed... More

Having used this hotel quite a few times, I can say it has never disappointed me and it has actually consistently fared very well. Its definite advantages are the location (very close to Gloucester Rd tube and reasonably close to South Ken tube) and the attentive service, as well as the generous buffet breakfast, which for me - in contrast...

The room was beautiful, and the check in was friendly and welcoming. However we encountered several problems during the stay. The package we paid for promised bathrobes in the room. They were not there when we got there. When we requested them though, even though it was obvious there was two of us we were only given one. Obviously we... More

Very narrow rabbit-warren of dark corridors, very small and dark bedroom, miniscule bathroom. Lifts only take 3 people with bags. Overflow breakfast room had no supervision so food items were not replenished unless prompted by guests, then a long wait

I stayed at this hotel for a couple of nights last week, and was very pleasantly surprised. The rooms were quite large and comfortable, the staff were excellent and the food was really good! This is great value for money for the location, I will definitely stay again!

We stayed here for four nights with two children, two adults. The family room was large, with a decent sofa bed and very large double. The bathroom was a little tired, but generally good - super slippery marble floor however. We had a minor problem with hot water during our stay but this was quickly resolved by the polite maintenance... More
