This hotel was hot, smelly, stuffy and uncomfortable. There is no elevator and there did not seem to be any rooms at the back. All of the rooms face Old Brompton Road which is noisy at all hours. There is no air conditioning and the room has one window - the top section pops outward for about 8" and that... More

Booked on line Dirty. Dangerous. Disgraceful. Hairs in plug hole of bath. Bathroom floor tiles cracked & sharp - needed to lay towels on floor to protect feet. Window duck taped to stop draught. Sink cracked. Breakfast consisted of soggy toast. Hallway outside of bedroom ( near "kitchen" ) smelt of cigarette smoke. Rip off . Would definitely NOT recommend.... More

We chose this hotel because of its location and it is one of the hotels recommended in Rick Steves' book on London. There is no elevator. Stairs are long, and if you are at the top floor, with luggage, you are toast. There is no bellboy (are you kidding?). There is no air-conditioning. Room temperature was 80 F on some... More

We wanted a hotel close to the V & A as was attending a couple of exhibitions at the weekend. We booked this hotel. Our room was on the top floor, 6 flights of stairs, no lift, at the rear. We faced out onto a wall, and could just see the sky craning our necks. Two small opening windows, the... More

The hotel is very tired looking. It's a rabbit warren of corridors and stairs. We had 6 flights to climb to our room, no lift. The bedroom was a reasonable size, the bathroom small. Our shower screen was held together by gaffa tape, and control knob and cover plate were missing from the shower. There was an extractor outlet just... More

I stayed at this South Kensington hotel on business during the week 7-11 April. My top-floor, front-facing single room was compact but comfortable and quiet, with a small but perfectly adequate bathroom. Everything was clean, in good condition and worked. Breakfast was delivered on time and left on a tray outside the room door: eggs and toast were hot, and... More
