Want to feel like a local in London? Stay at the Cranley Hotel which is just minutes from the Gloucester Road tube stop. Easy access within a great neighborhood surrounded by wonderful shopping and museums and historical sites. The hotel was refreshing and very upscale without being pompous or elite. Our room was very comfortable and large with great decor... More

This is a low key boutique hotel. We received very good service. The personnel is helpful and well disposed. We stayed for 5 nights in a four poster room, which was very spacious and had a lot of wardrobe space. The bathroom was equally nice and the shower excellent. The room is nicely decorated although it doesn't look "fresh". We... More

We have stayed at the Cranley 3 times -- twice on our most recent trip to Europe. While we initially liked the four-poster room, our recent experiences were less than ideal. The hotel's wifi is barely operational - don't expect to get online or check email. The bed was horrific; in reality it was two beds pushed together with a... More

We stayed at this hotel in December 2013. It was everything I wanted in a typical English Hotel. Even though the rooms are not huge they were decorated beautifully. Bed was very comfy!! We didn't want to stay in a hotel that you could get anywhere we wanted to stay somewhere that was very English and I believe the Cranley... More

I stayed here for one night before sitting a language exam in South Ken. I booked the hotel as a result of the good Trip Advisor reviews and I was not disappointed. The hotel was better than I expected and the room was gorgeous. I only wish I'd been staying for longer. If I am in the area again for... More

I had a brief one night stay at this hotel while attending a conference very close by. Unfortunately, I could not enjoy all the wonderful facilities that the hotel had to offer. The welcome was very warm and friendly, all staff were very attentive. Only downside was a rather meagre breakfast, but perhaps I did not order all that I... More

We loved the Cranley. Our room was vast and very comfortable, and the location cannot be beat. Everyone at the Hotel was warm and welcoming and had excellent suggestions for local restaurants - there are a number of great spots just minutes away, including one of the best tapas restaurants in london. The evening drinks hour is a welcome moment... More

We were delighted with our room at the Cranley Hotel. Excellent value for money, considering location, etc (especially as we had an upgrade to room 201, a 4-poster room!). The Reception/lounge area was really attractive and each time we went to Reception we were immediately given totally professional attention. Reception was well staffed at all times. Our room was street-side... More

We just completed a three night stay at the Cranley Hotel. We were very surprised by the excellent service, quality, and location of the hotel. The price was extremely reasonable in reference to the prices of others in London, and I would recommend this hotel to anyone thinking of making a trip to London.
