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

service was far from perfect! 3 nights = 3 different rooms! the supposedly 4-star rated hotel didn't live up to its standard. 1st night: spacious & nice room but 2 separate single beds (not what we asked for). 2nd night: 1 bed, yes, but in a very small room. Bathroom even smaller. Very noisy air-con, couldn't sleep. no luggage waiting... More

Disgraceful, rydges take out money for your room then more when you leave, without explanation, I only knew from looking at bank statement, nothing taken out of mini bar, nothing else taken or used. Be careful of this hotel, i got no explanation why they took out more money, despite emailing them. I would avoid rydges.

A colleague suggested this hotel to me, and I should say is very good, and perfect for work. The location is optimal, closed to Gloucester Road underground station. The hotel itself is clean, quite and comfortable. I didn't used any other service.

Great location easy to get around London on the tube, rooms were small but to be expected in London, room modern but still has the English charm. Had everything we needed, most importantly the beds were very comfortable and the staff were friendly.

Very near Gloucester Road tube station, and handy for several bars and Tesco and Waitrose if you should need them. The room was clean and confortable, a good shower room. It was not the biggest room but neither was it too small. The staff were friendly and helpful. I would happily use it again.

The pluses - great location, clean room and friendly (albeit totally ineffectual) staff. The minuses - not cheap at all. An executive room was over $Can300. And the room was very small. The telephone didn't work and despite repeated requests it was never fixed. Very few towels (oddly way too many soaps and shampoos) and requests for more towels were... More
