Solo traveler - Hot Room - Low Lighting

I stayed here for 3 nights and in general this hotel is old and needs updating. However, the beds were reasonably comfortable and the shower was actually pretty good. I fail to see how you can get any air in the bathroom and not allow it to steam up because there's no ventilation. The only thing that I have to complain about is that the hotel staff wasn't particularly nice or friendly, or rude in any way, it was pretty average. They didn't take too good care of me after my wallet was stolen and my hotel card with it. Also the room, the A/C does NOT work! It was excessively warm in the room the whole time despite it being cool outside so it really should have been more like heat versus cool but it was super stuffy in the room the whole 3 days.

It was average, everything is for charge , the intenet and even the breakfast for ten pounds, whereas in many hotels of the same area the british breakfast is included in the ocst. This hotel inspite of charging for 4 star costs does not provide the services of a 4 star hotel. Staff behaviour is acceptable but cannot be rated as excellent. Except for the location there is nothing extraordinary

Ok Location because have family nearby so suited us

Hotel very busy with lots of tourists coming and going. Decor adequate but a bit tired. Housekeeping a little slack. Didn't replace used milk or soap. Found an old sock between cupboards so room not properly cleaned. Double glazed window in 2 sections and between them (could open) was dreadful mould which should not be there. Charged 10pound /24 hrs for internet which was a bit erratic and slow. This really annoys me. They do not charge for hot water or TV so why the internet!! No free newspapers. Charged more for breakfast than what you could buy lunch for.

Ideal for runners

The huge buiding has no charm whatsoever, but the room was clean. Located near a subway station and very close to Hyde Park, which is convenient to go running in the morning.

family trip

Since my previous stay at this hotel, it has declined somewhat. Instant coffee in room, expensive to purchase and not open until 7 AM (Cafe Express). Buffet breakfast was good and does include coffee in main restaurant. Most staff members were not fluent in English, but some were good. I think there is a trend to have the guest make his own reservations by phone or computer. I think the 10 pound charge per day for internet is too high.

Rough around the edges

The windows leaked when it rained, the concierge was rude and unhelpful, there was no safe in the room, and they want 10 pounds a day for Internet service. Not a 4 Star experience!!!

Dissapointing

There are much better hotels in this part of London for a similar price. It is a busy hotel but in serious need of some investment. The rooms although clean are shabbily decorated and more consistent with a two star rating. Even a Premier budget hotel would provide a better standard of accommodation and certainly better value for money.

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

Kesington Place restaurant is approx 15-20mins walk away and is excellent. (If you enjoy fish and seafood)
