“Great Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

Although quite a walk from the nearest Tube Stations, there are plenty of bus links to all areas. I made the mistake of thinking that I would be able to connect easily to Olympia, but found out that the rail service is extremely limited during the week - as a previous reviewer has pointed out, Olympia would have been perfect as it is opposite the hotel. So the hotel is generally convenient for travel around London. The hotel staff are great; good breakfast service, excellent bar service and all staff were helpful and kind. The rooms are quirky and pretty, although less well-equipped than other rooms I've had in other hotels. There was a hanging rail rather than a wardrobe, for example, and the shelves on the wash basin and above the toilet were dangerously sloping! However, these small details aside - the Hand and Flower is a good place to stay in a very interesting part of London - beautiful Holland Park and trendy Notting Hill are only a stones throw away. I stayed three nights and would certainly return.

Stayed here as we wanted somewhere near Olympia exhibition hall. It is literally opposite so perfect. Bar is buzzing after any show with a great atmosphere. Rooms were lovely aswell. Breakfast was amazing with table service. Staff were superb. Would highly recommend for business trips.

We stayed here during the Olympics and as we booked a year in advance we managed to get the old rates before the hotel was redeveloped!
We turned up early so the manager put us in a free room - which was actually bigger than the one we booked. The room was very clean, modern and nicely decorated.
The staff were extremely helpful and friendly.
Obviously staying here for our Olympic break we didnt' spend too much time at the hotel - but I would definately use again for a weekend break in London and take advantage of the bar and menu on offer.
Overall great hotel, only 5 mins walk to the nearest tube and in the decent enough location. Would recommend!

We have recently come back from a 1 night stay and have had a wonderful time at this hotel. We are a family of four and stayed in the family suite which was very clean and very comfortable. We arrived early to leave our luggage but was told the room was ready for us and allow to make use of it and upon departing the staff were more than happy to allow us to leave our luggage again. This was a real bonus. The only downside I would mention is that the room got very hot even though there was a fan provided, but this would not put us off staying there again. We heard no noise from the bar downstairs and found the staff extremely helpful and very polite. The food in the hotel was very nice indeed, along with the pleasant surroundings. Got a great deal which was good value for money.

Room Tip: The Kensington Olympia tube is only open at the weekends and Bank Holidays.

We recently stayed at the Hand and Flower for 1 night during the Olympics and found the whole experience fantastic from start to finish. We arranged to arrive before the check in time expecting to leave our bags then come back later but the staff had the room ready and were more than willing to show us to our room during the busy lunch time period. We arrived back after a busy day at the Olympics and had an evening meal there which was elegantly presented and of the highest quality.

The whole pub had just gone through some refurbishments and you could still smell the new gloss paint (not in a bad way) and the twin room we had had been decorated to a very high standard. Excellent en-suite facility's with a bath and shower, free Wi-Fi, T.V, ipod docking station, tea and coffee machine all made our brief stay a very enjoyable one.

On a weekend there is a tube station 100 yards away and we saw regular buses for Kings Cross going up and down the street.

Breakfast in the morning was one of the best I have ever tasted (and I enjoy a good breakfast!) and nothing was too much trouble for the staff.

Well worth a stay.

I stayed here for 4 nights room 7 top floor, i did not find the stairs a problem. The room was decorated lovely & very spacious for London Accommodation. Could not fault the breakfast at all with many choices, mine being full english. The only faults i could find & this is probably being picky is i could of done with a hand towel for my hair as you only got a bath towel, you have to keep windows shut at night as the traffic from the main road can be a little noisy but slept like a baby once shut. Would really recommend staying here to discover London as great value and friendly staff. I will stay again on my next trip to London.

Booked a double room and paid about £95 for it. This judgement is based on the price I paid for the room in this area.
Positives: The room itself was a decent enough size with an en-suite bath / shower. I have paid more for hotels with smaller rooms in the area. Room was nice and clean, which is top of my list of "musts". Tea/coffee are provided. Full english breakfast is provided and gets you off to a good start to the day
Negatives: No soap in room, only shampoo (think this was an oversight). No hand towels or floor towels. No lift may cause a problem if you struggle with stairs.

Pub downstairs was decent enough.

One word of warning though...but nothing to do with the hotel. I parked in the NCP in the Hilton Olympia, approx 50m away. As I arrived at 6.30 PM I had a deal where it would cost £11 to park if I left before 9AM. I got there at 9.15, and was told it would cost £35!!!! It took the guy a phone call to reduce this to a more reasonable £15.

I will definitely stay in this hotel again, but will ensure I'm collecting my car before 9AM
