We stayed to view the This is David Bowie exhibition which was being held at the nearby V&A museum during July 2013. Loved the location as it was very near to Hyde Park, which due to to the balmy weather was a lovely place to picnic.
The room itself was a delight- we had a free upgrade to a business room and the king size bed, sofa and ensuite bathroom were more than comfortable. There were bottles of water available on entry, which were welcome after a hot morning's travel. Also, the TV and free Wi-Fi were welcome additions.
We did not come by car, so cannot comment on the parking but the location in Kensington was central for buses, taxis, tube stations and the London Cycle Hire Scheme- there were three docking stations nearby.
Down the Gloucester Road there were supermarkets and cafes and a great little Greek restaurant which was so cheap and cheerful, which put pay to the myth that eating out in London is expensive.
The staff who were mostly foreign were helpful and professional and the breakfast and bar food were superb, if not a little pricey for the ordinary traveller invariably on a budget. But not extortionate. We have stayed in London a few times and this hotel was definitely the best value for money. We enjoyed staying here immensely and would definitely come again based on this experience.
