Maybe not the worst but i can say one of the worst hotel experience of my life. The receptionist was very rude. The micro room had a view of walls like a prison and the only things that you can see was the air-conditioning machines (attached picture). Never ever again..

Our recent stay (the second time) was not so good at this hotel. The room that was provided was very small and the bed uncomfortable, not to mention every time I had to charge my mobile, this would trip the electrical circuit. As regards staff, Mr.Sheikh was very good, this cannot be stated for the other reception staff who were... More

I stayed here July16-20. Had a small but clean and comfortable room right next to the elevator. That turned out not to be a problem as I never heard anyone coming or going. The hotel has a great location. The closest tube, Glouchester, (?) is closed but Kensington was a short walk away. I walked to the Museum of Natural... More

We stayed here for an overnight stay and couldn't have been happier. Staff were all super friendly and helpful. We were able to drop our bags off there early on the first day and leave them there until late on the second day which enabled us to make the most of the stay. The room was spacious with a really...

We were looking for a nice hotel close to the parks and a short taxi ride from the Kings Road. We really lucked out with Rydges! We wanted a room that would accommodate 3 people and we got a mini suite that overlooked a mews terrace which had a superking bed and a sofa bed in the sitting room area.... More

This was a perfect base for a girly night in Chelsea - great location, helpful hotel staff and lovely sized, clean, comfy room for three of us in the exec suite. One slight criticism is that breakfast is offered until 10am and although we were in before 9.30am, the buffet was pretty much depleted and clearly not being replenished. Having... More

We always stay at Rydges when we come to London and we are always welcomed as old friends even by staff who have never met us before. Nothing is too much trouble and help is always at hand. Thank you Joanna and all the team.

We opted for an Executive room as my previous experience in major cities is that the standard rooms are ridiculously small. The Executive room was the equivalent size of a standard room in Australia. Really comfortable bed and pillows. All amenities were clean and in good condition. The room is pleasingly decorated. Also, our room was facing the street, but... More

We stayed for two nights, got a good deal on booking.com so it was affordable. The staff were fairly pleasant, although without much initiative when dealing with our queries. The room was lovely, small but spotless with nice facilities.

This hotel is truly disgraceful as are the staff's attitude. The Front office Manager Emilio (sp?) is a disgrace to the hospitality industry. Non-courteous staff, are only there to take your money. I had prepaid my room for 3 nights, but when I arrived I was asked for a credit card for incidentals. I explained I did not have my... More
