Just got back from 6 days in London where we stayed the entire time at this part hotel/part youth hostel. If you like traffic noise, young people partying, lots of rap music blaring at every breakfast, smoke and very uninformed staff, this is the place. Oh, did I mention hearing every word through the walls in the next room at... More

This hotel is basically a Motel 6 type, the rooms are tiny, smelly, hot (in the winter!) and not close to the tube (4 -5 blocks away). There are no non smoking rooms, no central air and is very noisy at night. People are coming and going all the time as the bottom floor is a hostel for young people.... More

I stayed at this hotel from Sept. 14-21, 2004. The hotel was clean, although the rooms could use a little upgrading, i.e drapes, carpeting, but then you are not in the room that much. The staff was most helpful and accomodating. The full English breakfast was quite adequate, but the menu was the same every day. I especially enjoyed visiting... More

Just coming back from London. My 3 nights stay in this hotel is comfortable I should say. The building is undergoing renovation, so there is some noise and disturbance at day time. The bathroom is clean and clear. Bed and breakfast is up to standard. Room is small, as in fact in line with other hotels in London. Overall, worth... More

Just returned from 6 nights in London. The Craven Gardens Hotel staff were most helpful and caring. We had access to their freezer for medication. They wanted to be sure our needs were met. The rooms and full English breakfsts were quite adequate. The proximitely to the underground made our comings and goings very easy. The friendliness of the staff... More

For our needs, we found Craven Gardens very satisfactory. The rooms are small and yes, the lounge could stand a new layer of paint or wallpaper, but then, we didn't go to London to hang out in our hotel. We were there six days and spent most of that time out and about; the hotel was a welcome end-of-a-long-day retreat... More

Hardly a 3 star hotel. i would say an average 2 star at the best. No peeling paint, no bugs, nothing that obvious. I had a small twin room in the "lower ground floor" (basement). Thankfully we weren't in our room very often - it was REALLY small. The bathroom had obviously been recently re-modeled and the room itself was... More

Craven Gardens Hotel is a nice 3-star property with easy access to the underground and buses. Kensington Gardens is only a block away and across the street from the hotel are a couple of convienience stores for snacks, newspapers, phone cards ect. A low-key pub with outdoor seating is next door. The rooms are smallish, probably average for a 3-star... More
