We stayed here for four nights. We booked a Superior room, and after we had confirmed the booking and given our credit card details the hotel Website offered us an upgrade for 17 GBP a night. If available, we would get a better room with breakfast and Internet included. We did this, and it was well worth the extra money,... More

Hotel reception staff very friendly, very polite & very efficient--Stefan was lovely! Hotel lobby was lovely, our room was a little tired (bathroom plug has hairs in it, and grouting over the bath was looking black & in need of a little up-dating) as was the corridor leading up to our room on the 10th floor, as some of the...

Stayed for 1 night just as somewhere to crash in between landing into Heathrow and transiting through Central London to Leeds. It's not a hotel chain I'd normally stay in, however I got a good deal and decided to try it anyway for the sake of a few hours sleep & not pay an extortionate room rate elsewhere. As expected...

My daughter and i came to stay for a few days sightseeing in August last year. The bed was so comfortable that I asked housekeeping what type of mattress the hotel used. They promised to find out and email me. They responded swiftly and professionally. The reception staff were a little preoccupied, but all the others were pleasant and polite.... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights with an organised tour which obviously attracted a discounted rate and so overall was OK. If I had paid the fulkl rate I would be complaining about niddly things such as - towels not being replaced, insufficient milk etc for tea/coffee in room, average breakfast with key absences such as mushrooms and fried...

The hotel is in need of a make over in particular the bedrooms. The net curtains are so old and look like they are from a different age, 70's. Once you get over this rather obvious flaw and I did,you notice how clean the room is, the bathroom also and there is a very fine FSTV. The bed is firm... More

Well to tell you the truth i pick this hotel for the location more than everything. It is situated in a posh area with easy access to everything around. Close to the city center and main attractions and shopping by bus, by tube and taxi. Its situated best. Around the hotel there are a huge variety of places for food,... More

Hotel was good and reasonable value but I was cross that they charge £10 per day for internet. There are few places that charge including coffee shops, pubs and even McDonald's! We also had a broken electricity socket broken in our room.

Our stay was average. Location is good being very close to the Underground and the shopping on Kensington High Street. Breakfast was decent, prices not so decent. The room felt very outdated and aged, and was dirty. Curtain was already broken when we first entered our room. Try another hotel.
