Nice stay, good location
This place was fine, the elevator is a bit slow but not sure why people seem to have complained so much about it - it works!! The guys on reception were nice, got me into a room early after a long flight. Hotel feels safe, room is small but enough room! Things were a bit outdated and old but it was all useable for a few days!!

Best place to stay in Kensington
The best stay I've had in any hotel in London - the location near a tube station and all the museums is perfect and the staff were most helpful and kind - the room was very clean and there is a lift so no worries about stairs. I would recommend this hotel to everyone.

Good 6.0
Good for the price
Decent place located near some shops and restaurants. No good parking options. Parking Authority was waiting outside for 8:30am to start writing outrageous priced tickets. Staff was friendly, place was clean and neighborhood quiet.

Great Location, Great Price
A perfect room for the price in London. Enjoyed option of three twins in the room, although that made the room a bit cramped. Great location with easy access to markets, pharmacy, bank, Tube stop at Gloucester Rd (all within a one block walk).
