    In leafy Kensington, explore Hyde Park & Kensington Gardens by hiring a bike outside the hotel.

    Quite low cost performance hotel. Nasty room, breakfast and most of guest service staff are dull. I never recomand this to anyone.

    Confortável e numa rua sem saída. Gostei do serviço geral, mas a lavanderia foi cara e não fez um bom trabalho. Deviam ter internet free, é um absurdo não terem mais nesses dias.

    Try the breakfast buffet and be happy every morning; you'll love the English breakfast here. The location is also great, very close to the tube, so almost everywhere indeed.

    There's free Internet for ONE device for each room (RJ-45 provided). You'll have to pay for more devices/common area access. Trick is to do Internet Sharing on Wifi on that one device you're granting!
