I booked this hotel after reading the TA reports and was not disappointed. From the moment the front door is opened for you all staff members are happy to help in any way. As we came in very early in the morning from Sydney our superior level room was not ready but we were offered the use of another standard room if we wished till our room was ready. We found the Kensington area around the hotel to be lovely to walk around in and lots of little cafes and restaurants nearby. Our room came with free wi fi and an ipad dock besides the bed - very handy. Whilst the room was not huge it certainly was ample for my husband and I. Our bed was really comfortable and all linens were very fresh. The lobby was another area that you always wanted to go to - it was lovely sitting by the fireplace there reading the papers. The hotel is near buses and the tube and only a short walk to V&A museum. There is a restaurant, bar and gym also. Would have to be one of the best hotels we have stayed at and we hope to come back again. Highly recommend.
