This is a busy hotel in a good location, close to the tube with a short walk to Kensington High station. Beds are on the small size with room having two that were twin size. Discussed with others that had one full size bed, an adjustment for you if you are used to queen size or more. It is an... More

A three day business trip. Paid for Club Level room. Not sure if floor 10 where I was is any different from floor 9. Room furniture very old. Toilet cracked. Hairs from others in bathroom - I don't think cleaning standards are high. Window dirty - including inside double glazing. Location is great and lobby is clean and efficient.

Just checked in. Great experience at the Front office. HANS the front exec was very empathetic and ensured all my requests were accommodated. This 5 stars is for Hans. Hope the entire stay exceeds expectations (I have come in with not too many anyways :-)). More updates to follow. Cheers!

Hotel looks old fashioned and needs to be modernized. Good location. Dark hotel bar. Not stylish. Staff dedicated. Rooms without charm. Worst feature for that price range is the breakfast. Really insufficient as far as quality is concerned.

I want to thank the front desk person. Her name was Ausra ( I think I spelt it right). She was lovely and very helpful. The other person I talked to couldn't help me ( or so they said) to change my room. Ausra was able to do this quickly and efficiently, with a lovely smile as well. I will... More

A lovely friendly hotel. Clean and looked after bedrooms. Very spacious. A really good buffet breakfast. Great for an overnight in London. Quite a way out for the West End shows, so would either need a taxi or tube. There are shops not very far away to browse around and a few eating places. A very busy hotel, bustling in... More

Good location near to tube and buses, shops etc. Upgraded to club room, and although the room was not as good as Club Rooms in other Millenium hotels, the standard of service was first class, including breakfast and early evening wine. All staff we encountered were most obliging.
