“Perfect small hotel in London”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

I have stayed at this hotel three times over the past 5 years. It never disappoints. It's quiet, comfortable and perfectly situated. At first, I was worried the traffic noise as it's situated on the busy Cromwell Road. It's not an issue. Soundproofing in the rooms is first class. Staff are great too. Everyone is helpful and polite. And I just love the breakfasts - continental but filling. And great coffee. All important factors for me. If you want a hotel near to the Hyde Park, the museums and the lovely streets and squares of Kensington, then this is an excellent option.

We stayed at the Ashburn during our first visit to London before and during Christmas time. The hotel staff was friendly, courteous and helpful....very customer oriented. They were always interested in helping us find our way around or locate things we needed in London. The hotel is very near the Gloucester Road tube station and just down the road from the Natural History and Science museums. It offers a great home base for exploring London. Food stores, pubs and a Laundromat are close by as well. My wife thought the room was spacious and had a nice bathroom.

This was the second trip my wife and I had made to London. This hotel was10x better than put previous hotel. They have you excellent treatment all the way from watching out luggage when we arrived, to booking a show for us, to giving us a glass of champagne after the champagne our was over. It is definitely the little things that make the experience worthwhile. No it wasn't the most extravagant hotel I stayed in, it was the best treatment I have ever received. They can expect a repeat customer.

London hotels tend to be pricey and the rooms are generally tiny in the nicer neighborhoods, so the price was the main selling point. It is a cute little clean hotel, but do not expect any of the amenities of larger hotels such as a gym or room service. We arrived on New Year's day and were basically given a menu to order pizza from a nearby restaurant as there was no room service available that day. The menu for room service that was in the room ( which we never used subsequently) is very limited as to choices. The complimentary continental breakfast we had was however excellent. Also on the plus side, the hotel is clean, the beds were comfortable and the room we had was very quiet. Also, the neighborhood was nice and not overrun with tourists as other areas of London tend to be. The hotel is a block from the Gloucester Road subway stop, which is very convenient, and I for one prefer staying in the quieter London neighborhoods rather than say Picadilly.

Lovely stay here..but bed was really hard and squint in room 406! Think it was twin beds joined together...not great...lovely and peaceful though despite being on a busy road..very clean room and nice touches...things that let it down would be the carpets on all staircases are a bit grubby and the breakfast area is very cramped.... And the loud classical music...not required! We would go back..but a few extra touches like a shaving mirror...comfy beds...would only enhance the already nice Hotel

Room Tip: Don't choose room 406 for a double bed....twin beds joined together and hard and sloping!

This is a great hotel. We were upgraded to a deluxe room with 2 tvs, a lovely big bed and a great street view. Water, biscuits and welcome chocolates were a lovely bonus. The concierge could not have been more helpful. We loved the complimentary prosecco in the charming drawing room - we also got free refills! I had a lovely cocktail in this bar for 6.95 which is good for London. The bar had up to date free magazines like grazia and esquire! Breakfast is adequate - yes the room is small but it is quaint and we only had to wait for a very brief period of time on the morning of new year's eve. This is a lovely boutique hotel which employs courteous and friendly staff. An added bonus is that it is just around the corner from gloucester road tube station. We greatly enjoyed our stay here.

This hotel had a great location, near the Gloucester Road tube station and well situated for those wishing to see various London attractions. Mainly, we would agree with other recent reviews that this hotel is good (esp. for price/location in London, from what we could find -- London is so expensive!!), but not a five star experience. Our hotel room was pretty spacious by UK standards, and we found it to be pretty clean and quiet. One small thing did not work (e.g., side table lamp) but it wasn't a big deal to us. We purchased our hotel nights on Expedia with breakfast included. This ended up being the continental breakfast, which was a pretty good selection of fresh fruit, pastries/bread, cereal/milk, tea/coffee, and a few meats (salami, etc.) and cheeses. (You can add eggs, bacon, etc., individually for a small cost). The breakfast room itself is quite small and cramped, but the servers were very polite and friendly, and the selection of food was reasonable.
