I have stayed in several of the London Radissons over the years, and have stayed in this one the most. It's in a quieter district and I love the restaurant/bar, Scoff & Banter. I was disappointed to find out, on this trip, that the 'ol Scoff was under remodel, and thus closed. They inadvertently also put me in a room... More

Location is wonderful close to parks, cafés, tube and pubs. However the facilities are not the best.. This is a hotel fashioned out of old homes and consequently the rooms are like a maze with doors everywhere. The corridors are poky and small. The lifts are small and very slow. The rooms are small and bathrooms old with very high... More

When we arrived we were told that both the restaurant and bar were closed for renovation but they had a small café where we could... More

Was here for a one night stay and nothing bad to say about the hotel at all. The reception staff were very welcoming when checking in, the rooms were clean and well presented and the breakfast that was included was so much better than your average hotel. They even let us have a late check out for 4pm without any... More

Stayed in this hotel (Room 441) over the past weekend after booking via Late Rooms due to the cheap deal and brilliant location. I suspect the hotel was cheap as the hotel are currently doing up the restaurant next door (our stay was not disrupted by the ongoing work). Staff were lovely and very welcoming, the cleanliness of the room... More

I stayed here with my friend for a trip to London for a wedding. The reception was being held at the Vanderbilt and I didn't need another excuse to stay! It's a beautiful hotel and, for me, it was in an ideal location for any London stay. It is on the same road as the Natural History Museum and just... More

Stayed for the weekend to visit friends in London. The location is excellent; Gloucester Road station is literally around the corner and Knightsbridge ten minute's walk. Check-in and check-out were very fast and taken care of by Bimal who was excellent at providing assistance and answering questions. The room was slightly small but it was a single and staying in...

Super friendly and helpful staff! The singel room might be the smallest hotel room I have stayed in and in need of some refreshing but the bathroom was modern and clean. The AC made a sound (like a ticking clock) when it was switched off, so I had to leave it on at night with the normal AC noice. Wifi... More
