    Maybe it because I am asian and our service standards are much higher, but even so they booked the rooms wrong. I mean who books a room 2 days after they are gone. Anyway, this place sucks

    Don't be fooled by the flashy lobby, the rooms are a bit dated and could do with a refresh. The staff are friendly and helpful though which does make your stay more pleasant.

    Go for veg and vegans or other health food and very important for good healthy fruits, water and fresh juices during the day at Whole Foods store!

    It could be a 3* due to being an older hotel but room is very clean, stuff very friendly and kind, almost next to the High Kensington tube station, cafes, restaurants, shops on Kensington st

    Time warp! Sign up to loyalty club for free wifi. If you don't it's £10 per day.

    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.

    Houskeeping sucks. What they did with the most importand guest... the travel round the world and here they are really pissed.
    Babo-Buddha · May 31, 2014
    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. · January 9, 2014

    To get there: There is a shortcut from next to the tube station to the hotel. The hotel has loads of parking too and is close to a Boris bike Station.

    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!

    Never stay here. It fucking sucks. It's like almost hostel not a 4 star hotel!!

    Very tacky furniture in the room. Has seen better days. Reception: "smile-free zone"
    Viktor · October 4, 2012
  • Paul B.
    Reception service very poor for a 4* london hotel guesy services were very helpfull and the rooms super tired and with decor circa 1970.... Expensive and undeserving of its 4*s
    Paul Bancroft · September 4, 2012
  • Max V.
    "superior" double room does not have a king size bed. Not the best 4* hotel but still ok.

    £4 an hour for wifi Internet access is laughably unacceptable in 2011!

    Chris Aylett · August 10, 2011
  • Ben M.
    Really not that bad. 80s dated rooms but all basics ok and close to restaurants and shops on kensington high street.
    Ben Murphy-Ryan · August 9, 2011

    Stay away from this Hotel! Rooms and serice are just horrible. Only upside is the good location.
    Alex Montuschi · June 25, 2011

    The "Bugis Street" oriental restaurant is 100% better than the brasserie
    Doug Paulley · June 23, 2011
  • David R.
    Don't check in late or they downgrade your room but charge the same. Scandalous.

    If you use a MacBookPro and don't bring the extension cord for the power adapter it won't fit the sockets. They are too close to the floor. Call on the handy man and he will rotate the socket for you.
    petter warnsberg · May 21, 2011
  • Jen F.
    Great location, didn't bother with any food service or Internet attempts. Guest services were friendly enough, but reception was rude. Love the chargebox

    Nice hotel but the bathroom seems like from stone age. In addition, the restaurant is bad. Good location though.

    It claims to be child friendly but there's no child menu and you have to be prepared to argue with the chef for a 1/2 portion.
    Juliet Eccleston · October 16, 2010

    It's a bit life on mars but it's got a good location. Empty minibar in room but a telco close by.

    Showers are small and torturous. Rooms are circa 1973. Breakfast tastes like poo. Embarrassed to hold a mayorship here at the moment. Someone come steal the title from me.

    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.
