Stayed here in September 2011. Great location just a couple of minutes walk from a Tube station and directly across the road from, guess where, Kensington Garden, which was a nice place for a post breakfast stroll.
Hotel has obviously been refurbished very recently and though the rooms are a little on the small side (though probably average for London), they are really nicely appointed and are very comfortable. Busy road outside but bedroom was very quiet, so no problems there. The bar was really nice and prices very reasonable, especially compared to what one might expect in other four star London hotels.
The staff at the hotel were absolutely outstanding. We arrived quite late a night night and they were, without exception, charming, efficient and welcoming - on reception, in the bar and at breakfast.
All in all, a very good choice.
