8.4.Very good.
  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Refurbishment continues at a good pace. My room was freshly done, quite lovely, and remarkably spacious. Staff was on hand to check me in, even long before normal check-in hours, and did not charge me a premium for early check-in (about 2 hours early). They had a little difficulty finding my prepayment record, but gamely continued searching the system until they found it. The location is absolutely stunning, half a block from Kensington Gardens and only a five-minute walk to the restaurants and shops on Kensington High Street. This hotel is an excellent quality for the price, and I will certainly stay here again.

    Staff is super nice & helpful. The breakfast is excellent with a wide variety of buffet style offerings. Older building could hear the people upstairs walking around all night. Thankfully they were kind enough to move me to a quieter room. Carpets are worn in the room. Perfect location near Kensington Palace.

    Enjoyable stay

    Great location near Kensington Palace. Nice old house. Pleasant personnel. Good (not amazing) breakfast. Everything in good/great condition except that the carpet in our bedroom needed to be replaced (old and dirty). Small room (par for the course).

    Overall great place and price but...

    Great location and amazing breakfast for the price of the stay but as usual single room very small though spotless. However television not working. No info re wi fi sign in either in the room or on the card holding the key. Apparently it was in reception but not pointed out. No way in the room to contact reception to ask so any query like this meant a trip 4 floors down to reception. Having said all this for £50 it was amazing value and I would recommend and will certainly stay again.

    Ideal location for Royal Albert Hall

    Older hotel with friendly staff and decent continental breakfast. The bed was comfortable and nice clean bathroom with lovely white soft fluffy towels, good shower with loads of hot water. The room itself was smaller than expected and downside, there was no drawers only shelves inside a small cupboard which was impossible to put anything in as the shelves faced sideways not to the front with a few hangers for hanging clothes above an ironing board with iron on high shelf above. There was coffee,tea and kettle and bottle of water. Wifi reception was a problem as kept buffering when trying to watch a tennis match. Excellent location for Royal Albert Hall about 7-10 minute walk.
