I used to stay in this hotel quite frequently some years ago before it had its most recent makeover. Then it was a pretty good standard three-star hotel with the bonus of free access to the nice swimming pool in the basement. But now it purports to be a four-star property, by virtue of spruced-up public areas (rather glitzy 'Las Vegas' style) which speaks of the management going for party and conference events. But the guest rooms are just the same as they were before - small and just about adequate. Woeful lack of lifts, just as before, given the number of rooms, long queues for lifts are common. I got a reasonable price for the room from Expedia - definitely not worth paying the rack rate. But entry to the pool is £8 extra (that's mean) and wi-fi is chargeable (even more mean). But it is in a great location, right next to High St Kensington tube, and reasonable restaurants and coffee shops nearby.
