after my first visits I joined their membership program and this time I booked the room directly with them. I was disapointed with what I ve got. tiny dark room on 1st floor with view on the air condition outside. Heating System did not work and they told me that I just did not know how to operate the System.... More

The staff were very polite and friendly however the delivery of the service was sporadic. We are GHA members and the staff did not know what benefits were due although they had a pop up next to them identifying them which we had to show them. They then took our paper order and promised a cheese board to our room.... More

After visiting this hotel some years ago, we thought it was a safe bet for one nights stay on returning to the UK from a trip abroad. Big mistake! Clearly it has changed owners, as the standards have dropped considerably. We had booked through "Secret Escapes" so we didn't get a choice of what room would be allocated. We were... More

Having arrived lots later than planned, due to East Coast Rail disruption, our pals had already sampled the bar !! We were given an room upgrade on arrival, having shared our tale of woe to the very courteous reception team. The welcome was genuine, as was every contact with staff over the weekend. Breakfast was excellent on both day's. My... More

Hotel was very close to Gloucester Road tube station. We stayed for one night as we were going to the Royal Albert Hall which is about 20mins walk. Glad we didnt have luggage as steps up to entrance but no ramp. Room 112 was small but adequate. We paid 224 this included breakfast which we could of paid 5,95 for... More

I stayed very resently at Rydges Kensington Hotel. My 5 days visit was quite comfortable and relaxing. I agree pretty much the previous rewievers positive thoughts. The location is really good with an almost instant access to Gloucester road underground station. It takes approximately 45 minutes from Heathrow airport to Glocester road with the Piccadilly line. Very easy! Just keep... More

Stayed in an Executive King room, on a Business trip in Oct. Very easy to get to from the Tube (though the Gloucester Road tube station does not have escalators or an elevator, & hence could be a bother with using the tube station with heavy luggage). A nice neighborhood. Several restaurants nearby. The room was clean and comfortable with... More

A few years back, we went to London an opted for a "cheap" hotel. The place was horrible. This year, we decided to go "crazy" and spend a good 150£/night, supposedly a good rate (reserved in July for 31 October and 1rst of November), and a supposedly well renowned hotel. I trusted the membership of this hotel in a global... More

Near to super market and tube station (3 lines), not to mention museums and Prince Albert Hall and several pubs. Hotel was clean and quite. We would come back :-) PS: Fortgot 2 pair of shoes, which they shipped to me without any issue.
