I stayed in this hotel just for one night on business - it was cheap and in a great location! However, how hard is it to run a hoover over the floor between guests? I was staying in the single room. It was very small, the bed was uncomfortable and old, there was dust in all the corners and used... More

This hotel had many pros but also quite a few cons that would make me hesitate in staying here again. Let me start with the pros: • All day access to fruits, coffee, and tea. The fruit variety is quite impressive. They had bananas, apples, oranges, pears, persimmons, pomegranates, peaches, mangoes, and berries. Being a huge fruit eater, I was... More

Located on a quiet, charming street in Kensington, the neighborhood is the best thing this place has going for it. The immigrant family who run the hotel were friendly, and the included breakfast was more than generous, including a nice selection of fresh fruit. Now for the down side: my two grown daughters and I were assigned to the absolutely... More

Need a place to stay for 1 night in South Kensington area and used my free night from Welcome Rooms earned with Hotels. com. Glad I didn't pay for it as St Simeon was very basic indeed. Don't think I've ever stayed in a place where they provided neither a glass for a drink of water nor soap in the... More

St Simeon hotel deserves more than a 2-star hotel quality. The service is not matchable; no one rivals the price; the included breakfast is amazing; and it is located in a prime location, with a short walk from the underground. I have traveled to London several times. Nothing has been better that my stay at St. Simeon. Great hotel and... More

I recently stayed at Saint Simeon and really enjoyed myself. The room was simple, but very clean. The staff were very welcoming and always made sure that I was happy. The breakfast was fantastic and it was nice that I could go down to the kitchen in the evening and make myself something to drink. I would highly recommend Saint... More

I was booked at another nearby hotel for a single room at the end of April. I travel regularly between Europe and London for work. I arrived very late at my usual hotel which is right next door well after midnight in fact due to the tubestrike. When I was ushered over to St Simeon the the gentleman at the... More

We booked a triple room for one night at a cost of £166. I thought it was going to be a good experience as the hotel lobby is lovely. The first thing the receptionist did was warn us not to leave valuables in our room which didn't exactly fill me with confidence. She showed us to our room which was... More

5 minute walk from Gloucester Road station. Both Waitrose and Tesco Express within 5 minute walk from hotel. Fast food and sit-down restaurants nearby. Staff was accommodating and kind. Our first night was in a dark room in the basement next to the elevator and dining room. It was noisy due to the pipes from everyone using their bathrooms above,... More

Is very well located close to a handy tube station connected to Heathrow and a number of tube lines. and walking distance to the Natural History and Victoria & Albert museums. We travelled as a family and had a front street facing 5-bed mezzanine floor room for the four of us. This space was needed. The first night they had... More
