4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Close to tube station and plenty of close by restaurants of excellent quality. Lots of fire doors to got through was somewhat awkward to get to our room.

The hotel is in a great location. Had a nice meal in the hotel. It had great linens, a comfy bed, and service with a smile! We definitely would stay here again.

Nice hotel. The tube is located across the street. Good location. WIthin walking distance to the Natural History Museum and Kensington Palace. Was supposed to get a 2 hour early check-in; instead, my room was not ready for 45 minutes after check-in began. Had to wait for my room. Small sink and shower. Refrigerator was a bonus. Overall a great stay and the staff was extremely nice and very professional. Recommend this as a good place to stay.

Older building that was upgraded nicely. staff was excellent and very accomidating

Guztavo great sirvise they promise breakfast and they back out on it

Jolly Ole London does provide charming, quaint, and comfortable lodging and this place takes the cake. I was able to book a room at a great price and was very impressed by the location (right by tube stations and walkable to many nearby restaurants and stores and tours and I enjoyed walking around this neighborhood); quietness of room (felt very comforting and homey and nicely english); and service (front desk quickly brought me some extra water and electrical adaptor when asked and concierge helped me plan my day out with tours and nearby cool stuff, but best of all they let me check in REALLY early when my flight got in and I was jet lagged as hell and was able to sleep off a few hours during the day, felt quite refreshed then off for some quick roaming the sights before I was ready to retire to bed). All in all A VERY ENJOYABLE STAY. I didn't feel rushed to leave the room or premises, I could have stayed longer in the attractive lobby. Breakfast was very delicous and inclued in my room. You can't ask for a better breakfast. Many choices off buffet and menu to suite the pickiest eaters and I mean picky I eat so healthy and found many great items of great nutritional value and taste. Be sure and remember to tip the waitstaff at breakfast, they deserve it.

I had a nice overnight stay here, the breakfast was lovely, and the location is very center and convenient, staff also very friendly. I would come back!

The water in the shower kept turning hot and cold by itself. Other than that everything was great, included the breakfast. Very convenient location.

We stayed in one of the refinished rooms, and it was nice but small, which is to be expected in London. It is very close to the tube station. There are a few nice places to eat nearby. Our only complaint is the noise. You can hear the music from the restaurant under our room, and everytime someone moves their chair across the floor, you can hear the noise. You can hear everyone out in the hallway, and we were constantly woken up in the nighttime. Workers start working quite early, which isn't normally a problem, but it is when we could hear everything they were doing! Finally, the fire alarm went off in the middle of the night one evening, and then we were awake the rest of the night from the time change. Overall, we were still happy with the hotel and would stay here again, even with the noise.

My friends and I spent a week in London and stayed in this hotel. The rooms are small by American standards, but perhaps not Boston or Manhattan standards. It IS a downtown hotel in a big city. My room was clean and comfortable, though, and the staff were friendly and helpful. The great thing about this location is that it is less than a block away from the Gloucester Road Underground station, so you have quick, central access to all of London. Many of the common attractions are not even that far a walk from the hotel, either.

I would stay there again and it was so convenient to the tube

Excellent location. Courteous and attentive staff. Rooms are large by London standards.

The room is small but it very quiet . Location is perfect. Walked to museums and Harrods. Staff was most helpful. Thank you

I was nervous about this hotel because of some of the negative reviews and was prepared to dislike my stay there. However from the moment I arrived I was very pleasantly surprised. We were greeted by Octavio, and I can't imagine anyone more perfect to welcome us to the city, he was awesome! The hotel was small including the rooms but it is a European hotel and as long as you understand that, the size of the hotel shouldn't disappoint you. The room was clean, and I checked everywhere lol! The staff was very accommodating and most were very friendly. The dinner that I had at the restaurant was delicious, although my sister said that the breakfast wasn't that great to her. The location is perfect. There are several delicious restaurants and pubs, a drugstore, a grocery store and an underground station all within a five minute walk. I have to say that not everything was perfect. The refrigerator was cool at the highest setting rather than cold and the TV gave us pronlems. There's no ice machine that I know of and no in room microwave. However this is certainly not enough to ruin anyone's trip or take away from how hard the staff at the hotel try to please guests. I would've given the hotel four stars because really it's just a good hotel, it lives up to its four star rating by being just nice enough. But what put me over the top was as we were leaving Octavio came up to send us off and remembered our names from four day earlier - and I have a easy to forget name!

In London for a conference at Imperial College. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. One of their young trainees went out of his way to make sure our stay was perfect. Location in Kensington was perfect. Within walking distance to the museums, Imperial College and the tube. Very good local restaurants near by. A wide varied of items for breakfast. Price was what should be expected for this type of hotel in London. A slight negative was cleaning staff. They needed some prompting, BUT that was not a big distraction.

It was a wonderful experience staying here. Initially I booked one night and then hotel services allow me to stay for one more night.

I chose this hotel for its location - easy access both to the Piccadilly Line (for the airport) and the District Line train to Wimbledon (to where I was going for a wedding). The location is very convenient, and there is lots within walking distance (beyond just the tube stop). The room includes a fridge and free wifi - both perks that I wish were more common at hotels. Considering my room overlooked the Cromwell Road, it was pretty quiet for sleeping. The breakfast is a little overpriced, but I found it worth it for the convenience, friendly service and quality/variety of food. I would stay here again and would recommend it to a friend.

I have used this hotel several times primarily for its location. My greatest dissappointment is that it seems more often than not the rooms I had been allocated have had the nastiest views onto an inner industrial space and little if any natural light. I put up with it, I suppose, because I typically do not spend much time in the room. Bur it would be pleasant to have some sunlight when the weather is bright.
