Mold in the shower zoom
We stayed at hotel 2 zooms 3 days for our family London trip. The hotel location is very good. Right on the street has several city tour bus. It’s very convenience for family to visit the city of London. We have two babys one and four years old. When we arrived hotel we found out old of mold in the shower zoom. It’s very bad and disgusting. We don’t event want our kids use this shower. We have informed the reception two times. They said they will take care of it. But never! Very frustrated! It’s not worth our money and it can’t be a 4 star hotel.

So so experience, good location to Gardens.
Not very accommodating with bags or if you want to leave bags when traveling for a couple of days. Breakfast was a bit unorganized and they tell you 20% off of restaurant when you check in but then at breakfast you are told that does not apply to breakfast. Annoying at the time but breakfast was reasonably priced for a buffet.

Group Stay @ Thistle Kensington Gardens
I have stayed in this Thistle before, and very much like the location, and the atmosphere is overall comfortable (Shell station underneath notwithstanding). Once again I was bringing a large group, and so contacted the front staff a week in advance to sort out room allocations. They did not respond, and then were clearly "overwhelmed" (and a bit rude) when our group arrived, trying to do on the spot (allocated rooms properly) what I had attempted to sort out in advance of arrival. I did contact the Manager, who helped us get everything handled, but with even a bit of "proactive" communication the experience could have been much better. (And when you are paying an establishment in excess of £20,000, well, you should expect competent, hospitable treatment.)
