The service was fine, nothing to complain about there. The main problem was the fact that the airconditioning broke down for the last 2 nights of our stay, not that it was fantastic prior to that. England was experiencing an extremely hot summer and as it is a brick building the heat had been building for most of the week.... More

Location was great. An easy walk to Harrods and the tube station was right across the street. Rooms were small but very clean and comfortable. London had a heat wave while we were there but the air-conditioning was up to it and the rooms were cool. The English breakfast was very good. But the best feature of this hotel is... More

I stayed at this hotel in June 2010 with my wife and two teenage children; we were visiting London and wanted a good quality hotel that was a good location for the sights of London. We booked a family room for 4, which cost £276 and did NOT include breakfast. The hotel is easily accessible from the Underground - it... More

My boyfriend and I went to see a concert in Hyde Park yesterday and chose to stay at this hotel to relax immensely afterwards. The hotel looked very posh with the union jack flying, highlighting the hotel entrance. The foyer and reception area as well as the lounge were all in really lovely antique style.

The hotel is on cromwell road opposite the Gloucester road station. I reserved a room for 2 adults and 1 child for 155 GBP, not a bad price considering its London. The proximity to the tube is a great add on. Its on the picadilly line so direct connection from Heathrow. The room itself is very small, but thats standard... More

The location of this hotel is fantastic (Gloucester Road is a short walk away) with shops and restaurants nearby and the reception and bar area are nicely decorated. It is unfortunate that our room was small and the bathroom was tiny, although it boasted a deep bath and Gilchrist and Soames toiletteries. The wall paper was ripped and the TV... More

The hotel is located near the Gloucester Road tube station which services 3 lines (Piccadilly line from Heathrow airport, Circle and District lines). It was so easy to explore London having the tube so close to the hotel. The room was awesome. The only downside was that the bath towels were HUGE! :-) Nice to be so pampered.
