Kept meaning to place a review and then forgetting! We stayed in a double en-suite room for 10 days during the summer of 2014. The room was clean, comfortable and met all our needs. Our room was at the back of the hotel, so was quiet. Breakfast was included in the price, and included choice of cereals, yoghurts, cold meat... More

Our third stay at the Kelvin. It's nice enough in a good west end location. Breakfast was pleasant, room spacious and quiet (bathroom could have been slightly cleaner) and staff friendly. Decent value at £60 for a double ensuite room (£5 extra to use the hotel car park)

I stayed New Years Eve. I found a very small room. Still the room had very comfortable bed, a sink with hot and cold water, a wardrobe for my coat, a desk and chairs to sit, and a TV. Very clean and tidy with a pot to heat water and choice of coffee or tea and biscuits for no additional... More

The double ensuite was clean, comfortable, and quiet. Very good location in walking distance to shopping and public transportation. Breakfast was average. Free internet and cable TV. Overall, a good value.

I booked this on booking.com as a 4 star apartment. Place is dirty. No hot water and we had to get the staff to unlock a cupboard to turn it on. Poorly equipped. Awful noise in main bedroom which stopped us sleeping. Only positive is location and size. avoid!

Stayed here for proximity to the ABC O2. Had ground floor room 9 family room with a double and 2 singles. Pretty spacious and despite 2 large front facing windows very little street noise. Right next to front door so could hear doorbell and people coming and going hut didn't bother us. Parking is limited but the owner really helpful.... More

Excellent service, very nice rooms (small), friendly atmosphere, cosy, reasonably priced, clean bathrooms and showers. There is no central desk but there is always someone that can attend to your needs. A very good place to stay if you are not in search of a grandiose palace hotel.
