Situated more on the periphery of what London has to offer in quiet location, we found the Crowne Plaza to be a welcoming hotel in a good location. The tube station is over the road and just short walk to the national history museum. Nearby there is also a supermarket and a handful of restaurants.
On arrival we were able to leave our bags with the concierge while we explored the area before check in. Our room was on the third floor with no real view but it was well equipped with tea and coffee making facilities, free wifi, comfortable beds and air conditioning. Staff were very helpful and friendly and the breakfast the next day was superb.
We would certainly visit again and would recommend it is a base for anyone wanting to explore the city, especially the Kensington area.
