Wonderful Boutique hotel
We chose this Hotel as we were going to the Royal Albert Hall so only a short walk away. The Hotel was beautifully presented and tastefully decorated for Christmas. The staff were amazing and we have already decided to book again, when we are back in London next year.

10/10 Exceptional

A perfect location to stay in southwest London handy for museums, shopping, easy public transportation. As a solo traveler I felt very safe and loved the convenience of buses, tubes and walking. I deliberately booked a single room knowing I wasn’t planning to be in it much over a 24 hour period. I loved the efficiency of the space which was small and beautifully decorated - a little jewel that was just the right size and budget. Staff could not have been more welcoming and helpful, ill definitely come back here.

I was delighted by my brief stay here. The building is situated in classic Kensington architecture but is as modern and elegant as any of its high luxury peers. The staff is very attentive and the quality of the room is worth the price.
