Recent reviews

Very good 8.2 From 261 reviews

Poor 2.0
By far the worst hotel I’ve stayed at in London
I stayed in many different hotels over a 20 week period in London (for a work project). This has by far been the worst stay. Firstly, I arrived and there was no one at reception, I rang the bell many times and no one came for over 5 minutes. When the woman did arrive she was rude and demanding of many types of ID and even my home address? I asked why all the information was needed and she couldn’t tell me why, but wouldn’t let me stay unless I gave all of it. Next, I asked for an iron and ironing board and was told (very rudely by the curly haired woman) that they’re ‘not allowed in the hotel’(?!?). What hotel doesn’t allow irons and ironing boards? They shouldn’t be allowed to take business bookings if this is true. I have stayed at this hotel one time previously in their annex building, where there was an iron so it’s all very confusing. The room was disgustingly dirty and stank of sewage throughout my stay. Doors are very loud and bang when closed so I was woken up every night around 4/5am by doors being banged and people (sounded like staff) speaking loudly. Avoid if you can, plenty of better options available throughout London.

Great location and value
The value for money is good compared to other places in the are. The check in was quick, no issues though we arrived a little early and the staff was very nice and helpful. The room was clean, small but that was expected, it is simple but functional. Our room was facing the street so there was a lot of traffic noise even during the night. Breakfast was better than I expected after the reviews, yes it is basic but if you can't make toast/croissants with cheese and jam, eggs and cereal do then you need to go somewhere else. The staff was quick to replace whatever was finished. Overall a good stay with my 8 year old, the location is excellent so I would stay there again.

Good 6.0
Not the best
The room was ok but not great. It smelt a little muggy. The breakfast was rubbish. Hardly any choice and the ingredients were not good quality. Instant coffee, weak tea, stale croissants, and so on.

Comfortable but basic
This as get good value for money, clean and comfortable if very basic. Bathroom Is on a separate floor, which didn’t bother us, but may be a problem for some. For London this was a good find. Staff were friendly. Breakfast was sufficient.
Sara, gb1 night family trip
Good 6.0
You pay for what you get. Went with no expectations really as £50 for a night in Kensington is cheap! So there was obviously a reason for that. No thrills hotel. Decent breakfast. Helpful reception. Great location. Short walk from Kensington Olympia tube. 15mins walk from Kensington high street.

Clean and comfortable hotel
Great value for money! Room is small but clean and have all the essentials. Clean and well kept hotel. Also it is located in a quiet residential area so it is nice to be back after all the hustle and bustle of the central London explorations.
