Recent guest reviews

Staffs were friendly and their full breakfast was def the bomb! Very nice location close to the tube! It's in one of the richer, safer, nicer neighborhood! The room itself is very small...but we sorta expected it

The staff at the hotel was extremely courteous and very willing to help when help was requested. The breakfast was hearty and plentiful and served by an attentive staff. The location of this hotel was within a short waling distance from the tube and there was a variety of cafes, pubs, shops and even a grocery store close by. The neighborhood was clean and friendly. Unfortunately, the room was quite small and cramped. This is most likely typical of hotels in this area but not what we expected. The full-sized bed took up the majority of the floor space in the room. Overall, the facilty was a bit run-down and in neeed of updating. There was a lift which was a plus.

The St. Simeon is a B & B in the heart of Kensington (London). This accomodation was a few short blocks from Gloucester Tube Station as well as no shortage of shops, restaurants (ranging from Pubs to Posh), 1/2 mile from the V & A Musuem, Natural History Museum as well as Harrods. The gentlemen that my family & I encountered at the B & B's front desk were polite & accomodating always making certain to tell us not to hesitate to ask for anything. I was very impressed with their sincerity & the importance they put on customer service. We were on the top floor but there was a small working lift. Our room was TINY but was cleaned, fresh linens changed, fresh towels were replaced daily. The en-suite bathroom was spotless each day and the charming skylight window was cracked for fresh air. The daily English breakfast included a wide range of traditional foods was just okay. Maybe too many food choices. Lastly, I'd probably suggest putting better locks on the hotel doors as well as a proper working door & lock in the bathroom.

Excellent location in Chelsea neighborhood, 5 minute walk from the tube station at gloucester road, 10 min walk from the Natural Science museum and the victoria and albert museum, 15 minute walk to Harrods Hotel is a budget hotel run by a very kind family, amenities are ok.... the hotel was used only for sleeping and showering, it is not a luxury hotel and best serves travellers who will be out on the town for most of the days and nights

On arrival we were overbooked so the first night we had use another room which was very noisy. The next day we could switch to our originaly booked room which was fine, but not great. The rooms are very warm and noisy.
