Perfect hotel to experience all of London

In the heart of London's exclusive residential districts, this friendly neighborhood location is right by a Tube stop with three main lines (Circle, District and Piccadilly) and only a few stops from most of London's main sights. A cute corner grocery store, numerous local restaurants and neighborhood shops are just half a block from the hotel and provide handy, delicious and very inexpensive meals. Handsome homes are in every other direction. It was easy access to the best of London. The hotel staff and concierge were friendly and very helpful. The room was very comfortable. I can hardly wait to stay here again.

Get a 7-day unlimited use Travelcard/Oyster Card for zones 1 and 2, AND both a Tube map and a London bus map. The tube is fast, but the bus is great because you can sit on top and see tons of London. Being able to jump on and off both all day at will lets you cover huge amounts of ground at very low cost. NOTE: if you are there fewer than 4 days, get a shorter term card.

Great location as a base for sight seeing

This is my second stay at the Millinnenium Gloucester. The lobby is beautifully decorated but the rooms don't measure up to the lobby in terms of decor. They are clean with modern TV's but the decor is plain. The best thing about the hotel is that is is literally across the street from the tube station. This is a huge benefit after a day of sightseeing across London when you feel like you can't walk another step. The other good thing is that within walking distance of the hotel there are plenty of options for dining if you are too worn out to travel further. Within a block or two there were Italian, Indian, pizza and Singaporean restaurants plus a half dozen coffee shops and a French bakery. The staff is very helpful and the concierge helped us get tickets for a musem show that was pretty much booked. We would definitely stay at the hotel again.

comfortable nice hotel

Very convenient location- in center of S Kensington/ near Knightsbridge, 1 min from Waitrose, Starbucks etc and underground. The hotel is big, contemporary style, chic lobby, good bar, upper floors are club floors. Rooms are big, beds are great, bathroom of good quality with gorgeous towels and bathrobe. Luxury cosmetics. The negative- awful fitness room on the first floor and a little noisy if you have a room looking outside. But the overall stay is very good. Advise to all to stay there.

Great location

Everything was as w would wish. The Millennium club was a bit of too much, except that the breakfast without it was outrageously priced at over £15 per person for a very nice buffet. The concierge was a wonderful source of information and assistance. Problems were taken care of almost immediately. All in ll if I were to go back to London I would go back to the same hotel.

Buy an "oyster card" for travel for one day o the buses and underground. It is cheaper than paying for each ride separately.

August 2011 stay at Mellinium Gloucester.

On the good side the hotel is very close to a well served undergound station and lots of restaurants and a convenience and grocery store. We had a club floor room but the club is permanently closed and you get a continental breakfast in the coffee shop. For happy hour if you go beg at check in they will somewhat reluctantly give you a voucher good for one glass of wine or a cola in the bar. They do have some snacks available. The biggest negative is Twenty Pounds ($34) a day for internet service with none available for free in the lobby or bar. You can pull up an alternate called Spectrum for Twenty Pounds a week. It gets only one or two bars of service but we survived on it. Like most UK hotels they will not admit your before check in time of two pm. so we had to kill three hours in the lobby after an overnight flight. L

Olives next door will honor a ten percent discount on a coupon found in the hotel. They also have a large glass of wine during happy hour for four pounds.

Terrible Experience

This is definitely NOT a 4 star hotel. The room was dirty and had peeling water damage on the ceiling. The carpet was very stained and dirty. The service was poor. They did not replace dirty glasses and coffee cups when cleaning the room and we had to request that they resupply the toilet paper. There was also a lot of street noise. The one positive is that it is in a great location 1/2 block form the underground station. An easy 45 minute ride to Heathrow airport.
