“Fine for a cheap stay in London, but don't expect perfection.”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

This hotel is in a great location and close to the underground.
Room was small but clean and the bathroom had obviously been recently renovated. This is perfect for a short, cheap stop-over in London, but DEFINATELY not one to choose for a romantic, relaxing getaway.
I'm not a fussy traveller so this worked for me but there were a couple of little negatives that got to me:
- couldn't get the shower to stop dripping after use and the noise kept my sister awake
- they didn't have anywhere to store our bags after check out so they had to sit in the foyer all day
- no hairdryer in the room
- walls were paper thin - we could hear the people next door talking and even blowing their noses
- for 2 people we were given 2 very small towels - not enough for both people to shower and still have one to dry your hands on
- the window was small and quite high up the wall, which is fine because the view was awful
- there was one very thin pillow each, no spares
- we left something behind so we emailed the hotel the following day but didn't get a response. When we called the staff said that it wasn't in the room... but it was, so they obviously just chucked it.

If you're not fussy, this is the place for you. If you want a weekend that is even a little bit romantic/ special, stay away.

Ok so we paid £40 a night to stay here..I call that a bargain..The staff were lovely and any problems we had were quickly dealt with..Yes the place is abit tired looking and the bed was uncomfortable..But honestly i was pleasantly suprised and would stay here again..As a note we were in a superior room and don't think i would be brave enough to try the budget or economy..

Absolutely nightmare hotel. Arrogant and frightening staff especially if you are a tourist with little English knowledge. Never again, we left immediately as soon we entered the room. Obviously we made a booking taking in consideration the location. Unfortunately we did not read in advance all the bad reviews, which are perfectly explaining what the reality is that terrific place. Avoid!Avoid!

I chose this hotel for it's location and it was a budget price. Near to Kensington and Royal Albert Hall is half hour walk away. Also not far from Gloucester Rd tube station.
The hotel was fine, we were there for a night only and it served it's purpose.
Yes the room was basic. A bed, a TV and a shower suite.
The room was long and narrow, so it was difficult moving around the bed. But it was comfortable and we slept well. The shower suite was very small with everything squashed into a tiny space, but it was clean, and the shower was hot, although so many buttons didn't quite understand how it worked!!
We had tea & coffee facilities in the room.
It was on a main road, but the traffic didn't bother us, until we opened the window.
Curtains were very thin, so as soon as it was daylight the room was very bright!
Cromwell Rd is full of the top hotel chains and charge double if not more than we paid, so if I am in the area again I would probably stay at the Cromwell Crown.

Three of us stayed at the Cromwell for a weekend break. We were very pleased to find 2 large double beds in the room, which were very comfortable.Bathroom and shower were also modern and clean. The room was light and airy due to two big windows, so we could let some air in. We stayed on the third floor and the windows looked down to the shaft which was fine, it was quiet at night so no disturbences.The location was super as we just had a 15 minute walk to the Royal Albert hall as we were attending a concert.And the Natural History Museum is even closer, so we took advantage of that..We did`nt have breakfast so I can`t comment on the food.I hope since the refurbishment, people will give this hotel a good rating, because it really had a lot of bad reviews in the past!The lift is funcual, but a bit quirky as you have to open a door before the lift door opens..........Bottem line, we would reccommend this hotel. good value for money!
