Not good experience...
Room was too cold, as there is no heater and air conditioner is not working. Corridor is warmer than room I stayed..I have to sleep in jacket on..when I asked they provided me potable heater, but still cold.. Also internet does not work, signal for wifi is very weak. Did not have good stays there.

Good location but in need of a spring clean.

Will probably avoid boutique hotels now.
Our idea of spending Valentine's in a boutique London hotel was somewhat of a mismatch. It was essentially a B&B with some minor amenities you expect from a hotel. Stay was okay. I would just question the 4.5 star ranking. Definitely did not feel like it.

Rydges Kensington London
All very friendly and efficient apart from the KEYCARD system which required very careful application of the cards to doors and LIFT control in order to make them work - nuisance! Had to get one of my cards changed since it would not operate room door.
