Reviewed September 3, 2013

everything was ok! the location was very central, near to the tube station, Gloucester road. the room was bigger than we expected to be. the service was very kind and effective. We had rich and fresh stuff for breakfast every morning, whilst we would spend half an hour sitting at the lounge bar in the afternoons. when the weather is hot and dry, there is a magnificent back garden and the gym is well equipped. London is stunning and this boutique hotel is the best place where to stay during your holiday, better than home.

Room Tip: rooms viewing the back garden are very quiet and fresh.

We stayed in this hotel for 5 nights over the last week of August, and could not have asked for better value. Staff were courteous and polite, and location was great - just 2 minutes to Gloucester Road tube station. Rooms are decently sized for a London hotel - we had 2 rooms on the 6th floor and could not find fault with either of them. It was the little things that won us over - free wifi, a sleeping kit with aromatherapy pillow spray, complimentary bottled water, a tin of complimentary tea, coffee, biscuits that were re-filled daily. Will definitely re-book with Crowne Plaza during our next trip to London.

This was our first stay after an overseas flight to London, and it was very enjoyable. The room was a decent size for London standards, and the fact that a family of 4 could be comfortably accommodated, makes this hotel a great choice. The location could not be better. The tube was right across the street, and lots of great restaurants lined the adjacent streets. The concierge staff were exceptional! Rooms were very clean and the beds were comfortable. The half shower wall was a bit of a pain, since we had to mop up a bit of water after each shower. However, we soon found out that this is normal for European showers.

Room Tip: We asked for a room at the rear, overlooking the courtyard (on an upper floor). Cromwell Road could...

We only stayed for one night with our two children, however the room, service and staff were excellent and could not fault anything about it. Location also fantastic 2 mins to the tube station and 5 minute walk from Natural History Museum. The hotel also had a lovely garden to sit out in.

This place was amazing! The room was spacious enough for my family of 4 with older children.
The staff was helpful and went out of their way to insure we were accommodiated in every way possible. The concierge was amazing, everything he recommended was excellent. Steps away from the bus and metro, the area is full of restaurants and shopping. I cannot say enough about this hotel!

Room Tip: We opted to pay extra and have the breakfast and evening drinks and canapes. It was decent for adul...
