Ashburn Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This was my second visit to this great boutique hotel in prime location in Kensington, and the hotel had improved. Very quiet rooms despite being on busy main thorough fare. Walking distance to museums. Excellent continental breakfast. Staff friendly and super helpful. Rooms small but typical for Europe. Shower experience only negative- no way to avoid a wet floor ( only half glass panel). Only instant coffee or tea in the room but excellent coffee in the dining room.

Great location with easy walking distance to the tube. Room was nice size and breakfast a plus. The staff were very helpful and eager to meet our needs.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. I enjoyed the bigger room they upgraded us to and the morning breakfast was very nice also. I would recommend to everyone and I will be staying at the Ashburn again. INCREDIBLE VALUE!

The Ashburn Hotel was an excellent choice for us. Good location to the subway (tube), shopping, restaurants and site seeing. The rooms are very nice and the continental breakfast was great. The staff are very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this hotel to all my friends and family.

My girlfriend and I went to London for a very long weekend getaway. The service was great and the location was convenient near to a grocery store and the tube. The concierge was most helpful with maps and restaurant suggestions.

Hotel is great. Short walk about a block to the tube station which will you have in the center of things quickly. Daytime staff is extremely helpful. Concierge was great help to us. He was able to book some tours for us and provide all the directions and info that we needed.He's a definite gem. Busy street outside but never heard it in our room. Housekeeping left a little gift every day. Breakfast was adequate. Would definitely stay there again.

This hotel is a complete sham. The front desk had all the charm of a methodone clinic. The bellman was rude. The room was not ready when we arrived mid afternoon and the staff was unable to articulate when a room might be ready. My advice: avoid this hotel at all costs.

- appreciated the little gift we received every night in the hotel room - enjoyed the free champagne from 7:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. nightly - found the free breakfast adequate and filling - loved the free internet - had access to the Tube just around the corner from the hotel - was definitely worth the money.

Spent one week in London sightseeing. The staff was friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast was a real plus. The hotel was located just a block away from the Gloucester Station on the Piccadilly Line and made it convenient to get to anywhere in London. Located in Kensington, the neighborhood was truly upscale and made for pleasant evening walks. Would stay there again if in London.

This is a beautiful cozy hotel, located in a quiet section of London. Easy access to the Metro and numerous moderately priced restaurants. A jewel!

The Ashburn is well-located, with good access to the Tube and many dining options and attractions within walking distance. The staff is not well trained and not very friendly. The room was very small and needed new carpeting, but it was also very quiet -- double-paned windows helped reduce the noise from busy Cromwell Road. The breakfast room in the basement is small and the breakfast buffet just adequate. In all, an acceptable small hotel, but nothing special.

We stayed three nights at the Ashburn Hotel after arriving from Paris. We had a large king suite in Paris at the Hilton Arc de Triomphe. The bed appeared to be a queen and not a king. I called the desk and they indicated the room was a king room. Rooms are small in London. The room was clean. The linens were nice. The concierge was very helpful. Our room included breakfast. The breakfast is the worst I have had in several trips to Europe.

I add this hotel to my list of charming hotels in London. Excellent location -- right near the Gloucester Rd tube stop. Nice surrounding neighborhoods with good local restaurants and pubs. Our room was on the 1st floor in the back of the hotel -- not much view but it was very quiet. Air conditioning worked great, there was free wireless service, and a big flat screen TV on the wall. Absolute best part was the heated ceramic tile floor in the bathroom. Room was a very nice size. Special thanks to Steven, one of the concierges. He was very helpful in arranging tickets, advising on the neighborhood restaurants, and telling us shortcuts to get somewhere. Great value in terms of what you pay and what you get. Also, nice touch on the small gifts left in the room every night, the toiletries (always well stocked -- kudos to housekeeping). Continental breakfast very good. Staff at the hotel were all very friendly and helpful. There's no exercise room in the hotel -- but the surrounding neighborhood is really nice for a run or a walk. Close enough to walk to Hyde Park.

The experience we had with the hotel and staff was excellent. Stephen, the concierge, was alway willing to assist us and made arrangements for tours and transportaion, even before we arrived. The rooms were spacious enough and very clean. The windows were very good and the rooms were quiet and cool. The location was very convienent to the Underground and walking distance to museums, the park and Harrods. Greatly recommended for couples.

The location of this hotel for our purposes could not have been better--a very short walk to the Gloucester tube station on the Piccadilly Line which goes direct to the National Gallery, the British Museum and the theater district. Our room was very comfortable and elegantly decorated. The staff was very obliging. My only criticism would be that when we arrived they did not have the room type which we had reserved, and they put us in a room which was not of same or similar quality. I brought it to their attention and they gave us a superior double since a room with a king sized bed was not available.

Main reason for trip was to see Eric Clapton at Royal Albert Hall. Met friends there and went to a few museums and just generally walked around different areas of London. Hotel was 2 blocks from Underground - easy to get anywhere - even the airport. Hotel was very clean, staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. Gave great recommendations for local restaurants. Gave directions with printed out maps. Glass of champagne every night was a nice touch. Would definitely stay here again.

The hotel was great, the location was handy for getting around, and the staff was friendly and helpful. Learning how to use the toaster at breakfast provided more than a few laughs and was a wonderful bonding experience. Do not hesitate to ask how to use the bath/shower controls – the system works quite well when you know what you are doing and have gotten over the embarrassment of being outwitted by the plumbing. I thought we might miss having a fitness center, but all the walking took care of that and was a lot more fun. And we needed to walk because we did not have a bad meal the whole time we were there.
