Barking dogs, after I spoke with the front desk about our noise experience on our prior visit. Once we were moved things improved significantly. Interesting that there was no follow up from the manager or front desk

Nice, clean hotel near everything Kensington
Very clean hotel. No restaurant - but doesn't need one with so many restaurants within easy walking distance. Laundry facility was a nice touch. Would definitely stay there again.

Surprised no housekeeping for staying 2 nights
Was surprised a hotel that do not provide house keeping for staying 2 nights. It was been informed house keeping only be provided if stay 7 days. Will surely won't be staying in any more Citadines establishment. I think all their establishment does not provide house keeping for short stay like one or two nights. Room small and not that clean too. Shower area so small and hardly able to turn around comfortably. I am not sure how a bigger size guy going to take shower with such a small area. It is not worth for the price paid. Hotel industry so competitive now and this establishment not doing a good job and the management should look into this housekeeping issue. Not a very good management policy. I am sure they will not bother if I stay in any of their establishment or not because for them one person not wish to stay in not a big deal. Just wanted to highlight this issue to other people who intend to book Citadines. Take note, if you stay short period like one or 2 nights there is no housekeeping and no one will clean the room. You need to stay 7 nights to be accorded house keeping service. Do you think worth staying here?

Excellent hotel with perfect location. Mia at the front reception was delightful. My only issue was that we requested a rollaway bed and upon checking in, we found out that there was an additional charge of 30 pounds per night!!! That is a lot of money that were we not aware we had to pay but we needed to do it. Come to find out, the rollaway would not fit in our room. I booked the room over 11 months ago stating that "we MUST have rollaway bed" or if it cannot be guaranteed then I would need to book elsewhere. No one took the time to realize that it wouldn't fit in the room that I had reserved. I would definitely return just with better expectations regarding the rollaway.

Good value in Kensington.
It is a good value. I prefer a nicer property but in London that means $100 more per night. The room was very quiet. Since for us, the room is a place to sleep and shower, this worked.

Wouldn't recommend - not a great experience
After check-in, I went to go to my room on the 6th floor. They neglected to mention that only 1 elevator goes to the 6th floor, so I got on one that only went to the 5th and walked around until I found stairs up to the 6th floor. The place was somewhat of a labyrinth, and smelled like smoke or something else off-putting. My room actually had 2 levels - a small kitchen and living room on the 1st floor, and then stairs up to the bathroom and bedroom. I wasn't expecting this, but it was ok. The main surfaces were clean, but the nooks and cranies next to the desk, tables, etc., were very dusty. There was also one mis-communication among the staff in which one person told me one thing at checkout and a second person told me to do something else. Overall, not a great experience. I won't stay there again.

Dissatisfied Citadines
I’ve stayed at the Citadines Holbein and this was my first time at this location. All in all it was disappointing. FIRST: many of the rooms have a flight of stairs, which is not listed in the website!!! I stayed in 2 different rooms and both where run down. The first had a couch with holes and stains in the upholstery. Both had well worn mattresses. Not what I expect from a Citadines. There is also no breakfast available, unlike other locations. But there is a cafe and in room continental available. Staff was extremely nice and helpful in switching rooms.
