The title says it all. If location and price is important it will do. If you want more in accommodation quality look somewhere else. Very basic hotel services though breakfast is included and acceptable quality. Room was extremely small including a bathroom and poor sound insulation. No Internet access was in the room but available in the lobby on a... More

Beware of lots of coming and goings by escorts in rooms. There are strange mens wandering around. Clean enough but you get the idea the staff are edgy and strange. Breakfast was served on dirty plates.

All I really need for a business hotel is a clean room, comfortable bed, and a solid internet connection. I’m really not that picky when on business. This place is a big FAIL for me and I would never go back. The only good thing I can say about the Henry VIII hotel is that the place seems clean. While... More

The hotel located very near Kensington Garden - just a few minute walking, and few more minutes to Queensway station. The room rate is also reasonable and affordable to cost-conscious business travelers. I didn't try the hotel restaurant as it looks very boring. Breakfast is acceptable but the service staff are not always attentive - the same guy asks me... More

A last minute schedule change took me to London and almost everything was booked. This "4 star" hotel popped up and looked reasonable. From the curb I was beginning to think the high rating was optimistic, and my experience went downhill from there. Dirty lobby, marginally helpful staff, and an overall 2 star experience. Most of the other reviews are... More

Good: across from Kingston park walking distance to Buckingham Palace, 3 blocks from queens way station, away from busy streets, breakfast had huge selections, helpful staff Bad: the lobby carpet need updating, the paints on hallways were worn, the bed spring squeak on a slight turn, the floor squeak every steps. Definitely not a 4 star maybe 2.5 star hotel.

I’ve stayed in this hotel in May 2014. The location of the hotel is very good, easy transportation and access. Room is good. Breakfast is very poor – there is no choice at all. I was booking this hotel through Booking.com and was paying in the hotel using my Credit Card. Exactly two weeks after my stay – I received... More

This hotel is rated 4 star. The rooms are the biggest let down. Apart from being very small just enough to fit a double bed, there were no 4 star luxuries. Linen was what u would expect at a 1 star. It is also important to know that almost every 5 minutes the underground metro comes past right outside your... More

4* rating but is shabby. Room was dreary/cramped/scruffy & depressing! Noisy aircon/train station = poor sleep Taxi ride from Paddington needed if you have bags. Top tip; pay more for better & cleaner
