We stayed here for out 10 year wedding anniversary. We had booked the hotel through a travel agent, and were quite pleased with the place. We found the staff to be courteous and professional.

I've now stayed in the Vanderbilt five or six times. The first time I stayed was for two nights. The first night was awful; the single room was right at the back of the hotel and it was very small, as was the bathroom. For the second night, they moved me, and the room was a completely different experience. I've... More

I stayed here about 10 years ago and then booked a weekend here in March 2010. The public areas have all been redone nicely, but it wasn't clear that the rooms have been renovated since I stayed last - still quite traditional decor. The hotel has a great Kensington location, right across the street from the Gloucester Road tube stop... More

We travel through London about 8 times each year and have come to rely on the comfort and convenience of the Vanderbilt. The staff is attentive, the beds comfortable, and the baths clean and nice. The rooms vary in size since this is a converted Victorian era townhouse, but all are attractively appointed. It is very near to the Gloucester... More

We had high expectations from this hotel because it belongs to a reputable chain. Everything started quite well: despite the early arrival we were given a room at once, and the hotel offers free internet access in the lobby. However, the room turned out to be amazingly small. The TV set was an old-time Nokia one. When one of us... More

Booked a theatre break with a friend and initially chose the hotel mainly because of its convenient position. But so glad we did. Good room, good staff, good food all went towards a really enjoyable stay. Will hopefully be returning before too long.
