Our family booked us here for our first wedding anniversary, it was a lovely place to come and stay after we had been to a show and dinner on the High Street. We were upgraded to a junior suite and it was clean, and spacious, with everything we needed to feel comfortable. It was nice and quiet as set back... More

I stayed here and treated myself to the larger room on the first floor. Knowing that rooms in EU are typically smaller, I wanted something a bit larger than a single room; I did and enjoyed the results. The location is perfect and I enjoyed walking about Kensington Gardens, the Lady Diana memorial and restaurant (tasty pastries:), shops and even... More

We found this to be a delightful place to stay. It is an older building on the edge of Kensington Park. The room was small, but cozy; the bed was VERY comfortable. We had several large windows in our room which gave it alot of light and made it feel very open. The staff was cordial, not overly friendly, but... More

Everything was clean and the employees were friendly. The rooms are small and in need of updating. (Don't let the online pictures fool you like they did us.) The location is good, but the price seems quite high for the quality of the hotel. It's good enough, but not great.

This hotel was fine--nothing special. The rooms are very small; a double, for two adults, has almost no room besides the small double bed--so small that my friend and I opted for a larger room, the "executive family room," which is a double bed and a chaise lounge that they put bed linens on (not another bed, as the hotel...

We liked the hotel very much. Being from Texas we like our A/C so not having it was an adjustment for us, but the nights are nice and the windows open. The only issue we had, which is no reflection on the hotel, was the major construction going on right across the street. It made sleeping in and napping impossible.... More

Adequate hotel with some nice touches like the free welcome drink but I'll thought out room furnishing and noises building site next door leaves you short of sleep. If the noise doesn't wake you the window blinds that let the early morning sun in will.

This hotel was not all I expected. The room I had was fairly small - but I suppose that's what you expect in London. There seemed to be unnecessary furniture squeezed in - a small sofa and a fairly large table - I felt that a comfortable chair and coffee table really would have fitted beer. The bed had a... More

This hotel is beginning to feel like home to us!! The staff are very friendly, helpful and give good service. The bedrooms are comfortable with Elemis toiletries; the only issue we have is that bottled water is only supplied in the room on the day of arrival, whether staying for one night or three nights. For good accommodation close to... More

Stayed here for three nights as a couple in a Superior Double room. We found it to be really good value for money. Yes, the rooms are small but we found it gave us everything we needed. After all, we don't come to London to sit in our room all day! It was beautifully clean. The staff were very obliging.... More
