location, early check in, and changing rooms when i wasn't happy
very poor cleaning service, Old furniture, too basic.. windows don't crack open, not an inch i was suffocation
Faded glory but a pleasant stay
Reception staff and concierges excellent - however not friendly when called from room. Good range of facilities and pleasant lounge area, iron on room, overall gives the impression of a good hotel though a little faded
Reception staff, while mainly excellent, not friendly when called from room. Bathroom was not very clean on the first day. Rooms are faded and old-fashioned, especially bathroom.
needs a lot of work to improve
cleanliness needs improving. Some of the staff at reception are rude and unprofessional. The lifts take ages. The AC in.some rooms not working. We had to change rooms.
Near tube, cafes, shop's etc. Nice buzz about.
unhospitable and uninformed staff
Quiet hotel in central London
Better than expected
Great value for money. Good sized room. Breakfast was really tasty. There have been negative reviews about this hotel, please ignore.
Great value in excellent location
Excellent location Comfortable Good breakfast
Doormen need to greet people
It was a very reasonably priced hotel especially for London. It is very self-contained, several restaurants and bars, that are open late. It also has a take it to go, snack and breakfast cafe. It is close to the tube.
The air conditioning is not up to the task, especially when the temperature spikes in the summer. The hotel is dated, old look, old furniture, etc.
Rooms were a bit tiredlooking
Great for theatre break and weekend away
Position, good value for money, friendly staff
Room was above train track ( London Underground) so was very busy
Location to underground. It is five minutes to the station and easy to use. Also, the breakfast is very good. The Chinese Bistro was good too.
We were pleased with everything. The hotel however, gets quite busy.
Good value for money
10th floor room
Noise for rooms overlooking the railway lines
Staff were very helpful. Nice clean looking lobby. Good fire escape facilities.
At check-in were trying to charge us for an extra baby cod (child < 2yrs) while in the initial advertisement baby cods were free of charge. After a short but crisp discussion showing them booking info on paper printed from the site, staff finally admitted the cod was indeed free of charge. Phone charges for local calls are ridiculously expensive, real robbery. Looking at the quality of the rooms, the general service facilities and costs, and comparing with other hotels, a 4-star classification is overrated.
Dinner was excellent
public areas look really well, staff very good and very convenient location
I perbooked internet access but it did not work satisfactorily. When I reported it a new connection was brought up fairly quickly but I had been very inconvenienced overnight and in checking in online in time and on checkout the front desk staff did not appear able to handle a request that some deduction to the 24 hour rate be made.
It was good returning to a hotel we knew where the staff are very friendly and helpful.
Handy for the Albert Hall and Kensington shopping
What I liked about this hotel was the close vicinity to Kensington gardens and the underground station
we stayed at this hotel two times this trip, The first saty we checked in early, the only room available was at the mezzanine. though it was a non smoke room, the room smelled badly and the outlets for the laptop were hidden behind the refrigerator. The second time we upgraded to a better more expensive room , which was nicer but also showed some bad points, the exterior windows seals were partly gone, and the airconditioning which looked ancient was noisy. Overall my impression was that this was once a great hotel for its day but today is in dire need of maintenance and repairs. Also the exterior looks very dirty. The prices are very high compared to the room you get. Overall I don't think I would make use of this hotel again.
