Good place, great location!

Location of this hotel is great. 5 minutes walk from underground, 10 minutes walk from Kensington gardens, 5 minutes from the info center. The fact that this place has a small kitchen is a big plus. It has all the needed dishes, pots and pans. The hotel lobby has a coffee machine. You can have any type of coffee for free. Good stuff. The front desk staff is very pleasant, helpful and always available. I will definitely come back.

Quick Getaway

Great location. Only 5 minutes walk from the Underground Station, and everything is nearby. Staff was wonderfully helpful. The place is a bit small but the room was very clean and comfortable. Would definitely stay here again.

Adequate for our needs

Efficient friendly staff. Downstairs sofa bed not very comfortable and still had blankets. No duvet! Upstairs beds very comfortable and warm. Heat tended to disappear upstairs. Kitchen well-equipped but no socket for kettle in kitchen and had to hold switch down until it boiled.

Awesome Europe trip

Upon check in, the lady staff was very accommodating. When we entered our room we were disappointed that we were not told a sleeper sofa was a part of the beds in the room. We were under the understanding we were going to get a double bed along with 2 single beds, in a loft style room,instead we were given a upstairs / downstairs room. When to the front desk, to see if we could do something , instead got a smirk kind of an attitude from the male staff. Did not look like they really cared about helping resolve the situation. I felt like we were not important. Nonetheless , rooms were clean and well maintained daily.

Good accommodations for the price

Great location in Kensington - very convenient to both the tube and the buses. The hotel is currently under renovation, but we were able to get a renovated rooms. They are still experiencing some glitches - for example, the phone in our room stopped working. But the staff did try to accommodate by letting us use a phone from a different room for outbound calls, and then switched us to a different room the next day. The staff is polite, and the new one bedrooms are spotless and well laid out - it's great to have a kitchenette in the room. Overall, we'd highly recommend it.

Great location

The Citadine hotel/apartment is in a great location. The rooms could definitely use some updating and could have been maintained better. The entire room was worn and tired. The kitchen was key for our family trip and thankfully adequate. The staff was friendly but not overly helpful.

Waitrose at the Gloucester Rd. Tube station. This fabulous grocery has everything you need from prepared food, fresh fruit, and the orchid gift to take to relatives.

Hotelli loistavalla paikalla

Hotelli sijaitsi hyvien yhteyksien varrella, hienolla alueella. Meillä oli kaksikerroksinen huone, jossa oli kaikki tarpeellinen (hiustenkuivaajasta astianpesukoneeseen). Erityisesti ilmainen wifi oli plussaa. Ja huoneessa oli hyvä ilmastointi, jota sai kätevästi säädettyä. Henkilökunta oli ammattitaitoista ja ystävällistä! Hotellivieraat oli huomioitu monessa pienessä asiassa, aulassa oli tarjolla ilmaisia erikoiskahveja ja hedelmää. Huoneissa oli pikakahvia ja teetä. Itse hotellihuone oli aavistuksen kulahtanut, esim. seinissä vähän jälkiä/kulumaa, mutta se ei haitannut.

Hotellin edessä Gloucester roadilla on monia pieniä kahviloita, joista saa piirakoita ja täytettyjä patonkeja edullisesti (1-3 puntaa). Hotellin hyvän sijainnin vuoksi lähellä oleviin museoihin pääsee kävellen. Me kuljimne usein Hyde Parkin kautta moniin muihinkin kohteisiin, kuten Oxford streetille asti.

Sijainti oli loistava ja hinta/laatusuhde kohdillaan. Suosittelen ehdottomasti Lontoossa kaupunkilomaa viettäville!

Tähän hotelliin tulemme uudelleen

Hotellin sijainti oli lentokentältä tultaessa erinomainen, yhdellä metrolla lähes hotelllin ulko-oville. Hotellin sijainti monin nähtävyyksiin nähden oli mielestämme myös hyvä. Osittain kävelymatkan tai yhden metro/bussimatkan päässä. Henkilökunta oli avuliasta ja ystävällistä. Huoneemme oli toimiva perheelle, jossa teini-ikäisiä. Lisävuode mahtui hyvin ja tilaa riitti silti oleskella huoneistossa. . Myös toisessa huoneessa majottunut matkaseurueemme vauvaperhe oli tyytyväinen huoneeseen ja mm.vauvasänkyyn. Ainoana pikkumiinuksena erikoisesti toimiva sähkövalo systeemi, johtui ehkä kaksikerroksisesta huoneestamme, ja jokunen sähköinenkeittiökone piti vaihtaa/korjata. Näihin henkilökunta suhtautui kuitenkin avuliaasti ja toiminta oli nopeaa. Voin suositella tätä hotellia.
