Get the good out of the way first. Staff very courteous, buffet breakfast more than plus marks. However having stayed here on several occasions before, was distraught to our cells in the basement, ( I booked three rooms at nearly 200 pounds per night!). When we went to lower ground we found it was the twilight zone of the basement.... More

Paid £157 for single room and breakfast. I could literally touch the walls on both sides of my room if standing in the middle. It was the smallest hotel room I have ever seen! So over prices. Booked full English breakfast but only continental set out and told have to pay extra for anything cooked. When booking the hotel the... More

I have just returned from a 3 night stay at the rydges hotel, our "executive room" was nice and clean but it wasn't anything special and the bathroom was very small. On one morning we had no hot water at all in our room, and the next morning the water was tepid warm. But overall the room was ok and... More

Considering it cost over £250 per night (discounted rate!), the service in this hotel was sub-standard. Our so-called "executive" rooom was small and did not even contain a pen or biro.The carpet and bathroom floor had not been cleaned when we first went in and, despite two requests and promises from two different receptionists, this was never rectified. It was... More

Wifi was spotty at best and staff were unable to do anything about it. Rooms were so small that I couldn't wash my face in the washroom sink. Then when I was checking out I asked them to get me cab and the staff gets me some hired car with no meter and a driver who couldn't speak English. I... More

Rydges was a comfortable base for a weekend break. It is ideally situated for the museums and Royal Albert Hall. Room upgrade was a pleasant and welcome surprise! Reception staff were very polite and helpful at all times

I have just returned from a one night stay at the hotel. Check in was painless, quick and professional, the hotel lobby was clean and tidy. When we checked in we were informed that our room had been upgraded from an Executive King to an Executive Suite. This was a very pleasant surprise. The room was fairly small but had... More

Stayed at the hotel for 1 night on a theatre trip. The hotel is a gem, clean excellent service and very well located, just 100m from the tube. The bar staff were among the friendliest I have ever met, and the service and food at breakfast were excellent. I had a small mix up with my booking, but the reception... More

Stayed here one night for a visit to the Albert Hall, which is in easy walking distance. When you come out of Gloucester Road underground station you can see the Rydges flags outside the hotel - it is only 100 yards away at most. Minor problem the room wasn't ready when we arrived at 2pm, but we were served complimentary... More
