“Very nice AFTER we changed rooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012 via mobile

When we first arrived we were given a very small, fusty room, into which there wasn't even enough room for our suitcases. When we complained (we were booked for an executive room), we were informed that we shouldn't have booked through Expedia and that the room couldn't be changed. We were quite insistent and finally moved into room 450, which was roomier although quite dated. However, the room turned out to be comfortable, and we thought the breakfast was more than adequate. As others have mentioned, the location is superb. My special local treat was the cappuccino and macaroons at Paul near the tube station.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

I had a brilliant 5 night stay without complaint in room 573 which is at the back of the hotel. There is no handier location then across from the V & A. both for the museums and transport(tube) connections. The room has everything required including mini bar, safe and is a perfect size with very attractive appointments. The bathroom is not large but updated and more than adequate. Hotel security is very good and we especially enjoyed spending several hours on rainy days in the very large, beautifully decorated lounge. The employees seem very happy to work for the management as they were constantly smiling and talking freely amongst themselves. Terrific service from every employee we contacted . A credit to a very well managed hotel. Breakfast is included and more than adequate offering many selections. We will be back in the summer, I just hope they have availabilty by the time we book.

Room Tip: Book early as this hotel is very popular with U.K. as well as International guests.

The hotel is just opposite the V&A museum. We checked in early and had our luggage safely stored while we strolled up to Knightsbridge for shopping and bite to eat. Free wifi was easy to access and pretty good speed. The room was a decent size with nice en suite bathroom. The bed was big and very comfortable. The room was too hot over night. There were two radiators, one switched off and the other kicking out heat but without a control valve. We had the window open but still woke up too hot. Very busy at breakfast, nice buffet breakfast with good choice. We checked out and the reception staff kindly stored our luggage while we visited the museums just a stones throw from the hotel. Lots of good bistros towards South Kensington tube. We went to a nice Lebanese for lunch.

Our room was fine but not extraordinary. Good breakfast. Very helpful staff. Nice location, just across Albert and Victoria museum. At bus stop and near subway stations. Expensive (but most hotels in London are). Internet is good and free of charge. The pool costs 15 pound for two per visit.

I stayed here for my annual trip to England for 2 weeks (11/24-12/08/2012). I've stayed here before and it has gone from strength to strength.

I was in an Executive Room (4TH Flr), the room is a good size and has enough storage for
2 weeks wardrobe. (I'm a lousy packer). The room is well appointed has a safe and minibar.
Bathroom is compact, but is more than suitable. The staff from the Desk to the Concierge to the Waitstaff and especially Housekeeping are pleasant, helpful and a pleasure to deal with.
Breakfast buffet has everything you could want.

The area is fabulous, buses and museums across the street, Underground station 5 minutes away. Harrods within walking distant (dangerous for the wallet).

The restaurants in the area are plentiful and varied. The Italian restaurant Orsini's right next door to the hotel is family owned and the food is unbelievably great. Any of the small cafes within walking distance are very good.

All in all, I've stayed here a few times and will continue to do so, because of the Rembrandt and the neighborhood.

Room Tip: I've been on the 4th floor in the back the last couple of stays and they are quiet and sunny.

We've stayed here a few times - mainly when we go to an event at the Royal Albert Hall. As before, the service was excleent, the room clean, well furnished, warm and cosy and the breakfast superb. We'll be back!

At first sight the Rembrandt Hotel seems fairly beniegn, and there will be no surprises there,the rooms are pretty much like the lobby, breakfast is ordinary and the word quaint would not enter the picture, the surprise is in the location. South Kensington tube station is two blocks away and surrounding the station are a series of small quaint stores, cafes, pub, deli, bakery...... And if you venture down Brompton St you will happen on a small village with more shops, restaurants etc. the Victoria and Albert Museum is just across the street along with an On & Off bus stop. Hyde Park is a short walk away as is Harrords and Harvey Nichols. So if you are looking to save your money on accommodation and spend it on shopping, eating and entertainment, this is the place.

Room Tip: We stayed in the back of the hotel, the room had no view but was quiet.
