Good business trip

The hotel is located in a good location in Kensington. The room was ok but very small. The hotel has virtually no amenities. The restaurant was decent. The internet speed is quite slow.

Good For a few days!

Nice small city hotel. Clean, good location.. They upgraded me to a better room. Ask for it and they would do it. They offered free fruit and water at the lobby.

Mixed

Not particularly welcoming reception staff, but able to check-in early without difficulty. Tiny rooms (my colleague could touch opposite walls simultanously) but well-appointed: comfortable bed, good linen, toiletries and Fairtrade tea & (filter) coffee. Short hairdryer cord didn't allow me to look in the mirror whilst drying my hair & no light over the desk. Very courteous & pleasant breakfast staff. Excellent breakfast.

Well located, Good Deal

The hotel was in a very central and convenient location. The room wasn't huge, but the bed was large and comfortable. The shower had good pressure and temperature. I did not hear much noise from the area and the room service was inexpensive. The one thing that bothered me about the hotel was that checkout was at 11am and they wanted me to pay 55 pounds for late checkout, which I think is a bit ridiculous. All in all, it was a very pleasant experience.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

The Natural History and the V&A Museums are a 5 and 10 minute walk from the hotel, respectively. And the Gloucester Road tube stop is right across the street from the hotel. Perfect location
