Beautiful hotel in Kensington, quite well located for shopping or sightseeing in Kensington and Knightsbridge.4 minutes walk from South Kensington tube station, but you can also walk to Kings Road in maximum 15 minutes.Rooms extremely small. We had booked a room with a double bed (for 2 adults), when we arrived we were told that we had got an upgrade. The room was beautiful and clean. The bed was maximum 1,60 meters wide, so a bit tight for us as we are used to a much larger bed.The first 2 nights we both woke up regularly as we had no space, and the mattress was really hard, but then we got used to it.The handrail in the bath that was installed to help you get into the bath was loose, so the first time I tried to climb into the bath to shower,I stumbled back, as I was holding the handrail in my hand. I laid the handrail next to the bath, hoping that it would get fixed the other day to avoid an accident, but no. unfortunately during our 3 night stay,I checked each time, but as I laid the handrail next to the bath to show that it was not attached to the wall and absolutely not safe, the staff just put it back to the wall,not caring that a guest who would really need to use it, might have an accident and get hurt.Breakfast was good, choice was classical. Staff in the lobby was lovely, always a 100% attentive.Bar staff were not so great, we always had to get up and go to the bar ourselves to order a drink...
