This hotel was a bit hard to find, even for the brilliant London Taxi drivers. Its in Abingdon Rd.
Its a looooong stairwell to the reception, but the staff will easily help you with luggage.
I had two different roomtypes on my stay.
The standard room was really tiny, but clean and bed was very comfortable. As the place has no central ventilaion the windows are needed. Heading toward Kensington High Street it means quite much noise from traffic. I slept ok though, but woke up when rush hour started ;)
The Junior Suite 202 - was a bit more spacious and had the same good standard as the standard room. Same noise problem though.
On top of the street noise there are some terrible noise from the WC fans. Even if I could turn of one of them, it was a bit annoying in addition to the street noise.
The WiFi worked perfect, and staff is brilliant. Great coffee and good breakfast!
For the price its really good!
