The hotel is nice and clean, in a very convenient location in Kensington but the single room I was paying almost 100£ per day (room 206) was extremely small. I couldn't even open my luggage properly: the bathroom was larger then the room itself. The staff was friendly and competent but there was no way of changing the incredibly soft... More

Four nights. Tiny tiny single 303. Noisy due to constant traffic. No heat regulation of the water in the shower. Getting into the shower is a squeeze. Nice area, next to V&A and Natural History Museum. Asked for a room at the back very early in the morning day one. They verified, but then forgot and gave it to somebody... More

I have stayed in many hotels in London over the years and it has often been hit and miss. The Rockwell is certainly a hit. Contemporary, fresh, elegant, quiet, professional staff and good value for money. I will definitely consider this hotel when visiting London next time and so should you!

I've stayed at the Rockwell Hotel at least 4 maybe 5 times now. The hotel is modern contemporary in design with a lovely clean, fresh, bright and light feel about it. Reception staff offer a very warm and friendly welcome and couldn't be more helpful. They are highly discreet and professional. Rooms and clean and well stocked with toiletries and... More

Have stayed at the Rockwell for years. The service is exceptional. Employees are friendly, helpful, and welcoming. The rooms are well done: clean, well appointed, and nice amenities. The price paid is a bargain for the service and quality. Nice atmosphere, central location off the Piccadilly Line. I couldnt ask for a better hotel to stay in when visiting London.

To me the Rockwell Hotel is my home when I travel on business to London. For about 7 years now I stay at the Rockwell and this is one of the best hotels. The staff is exceptional and is attentive to my very need as a business traveler. Great location 5 minute walk to the Tube and close to great... More

I spent four nights there while in a business trip. I was in a cozy room at the end of the hallway in the top floor: other reviewers stated it was tiny for two people, but just for me it was perfect! The bathroom was just OK and the shower was a bit small but I didn't mind. They also... More

I am en route to Heathrow and I'm writing this review while on the tube. I stayed at the Rockwell for 10 days while on a business trip and I was very happy with my stay. I live in New York City so staying on a busy street didn't bother me much but if you are in a front facing... More

We were three couples meeting up for a weekend in London. We booked through secret escapes. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful and all areas of the hotel spotlessly clean. We ate one night in the hotel and food was very good and reasonably priced. Easy access to Earls Court tube station ensured good journey into the city. Would certainly... More
