Radisson Blu Edwardian Vanderbilt Hotel, London
Outstanding Kensington Area Hotel
We had a very enjoyable one-week stay at the Radisson Blu Edwardian in the Kensington area. The room was clean and comfortable, staff was responsive and helpful, the associated Scoff & Banter restaurant was very good, fast wifi, and the location couldn't be better - across from the Gloucester tube station and within walking distance of Royal Albert Hall, the Victoria and Albert museum, Kensington Palace, and several top quality pubs. And the treats left for us - chocolate strawberries one night and fruit another - were greatly appreciated. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is planning a trip to London. It's a great location and a welcoming place to stay.

Radisson Blu Edwardian Vanderbilt Hotel, London
Best part of the hotel is the location. Although on a major road, sound proofing kept room quiet. The property has its quirks among which is a hard to get into and out of narrow tub with shower (have some physical limitations). Likewise, the room safe was on the bottom shelf, in the back of a cupboard. Placement made it hard to use for anyone with physical limitations. Breakfast service was okay but seemed chaotic at times.

Check in staff was a challenge, after escalating it was resolved. Shower water goes from scalding hot to cold and back, standing in a narrow tub. Breakfast exceptionally well done and serving staff very attentive.
