    Don't bring your cat. You wont be able to swing it in an exec room. If you are in a standard room it would be between you and cat who stayed

    You need to pay for internet and it isn't comfortable.

    Despite of being well placed in London, wifi is too expensive. I got a Three SIM card and did some tethering, with better results.

    It's good but expensive... Wifi costs 10 pounds a day!

    This hotel's leisure facilities are something to rave about. Check out the indoor pool, sauna and steam room. Swimming lessons and aqua classes are also offered. · May 29, 2012

    It takes a long time to check in!

    Good location but service poor and lots of noisy renovation. Rooms are small. I would not stay here again.

    Alastair Macartney · October 24, 2011

    Try their selection of sweets; the restaurant will not let you down here. · November 22, 2013

    Avoid it! the location is good, but the hotel is bad from any point of view.

    Plenty of noise from renovations... Not such a great place for now.

    Xavier Alexandre · November 16, 2011

    Very nice hotel! Great location! The rooms are small and they are renovating so it is noisy from 9 am to 5 pm.

    Nice location. Record labels close by and tube is down the street.

    Bent doorman put airport in minicabs,further supported by management who won't let licensed taxi driver use their facilities

    Really small Rooms & free wifi

    The price of the internet it's £10.

    Great location, food and staff! I loved everyone here! They were so nice when I got sick, they kept sending me tea and tissues without charging me. At the restaurant everyone tried to be helpful!

    Montse Solis · April 11, 2014

    In this day and age paying £9.95/day for Wifi is simply #outrageous.

    We got a free room upgrade. Free wife and a discount on breakfast. Lovely facilities. Very happy.

    I wish I had checked out the reviews here before booking. Added charges everywhere. 10 pounds/day for wifi, service charges on top of room service in small print for shocking food. 8 quid to use pool.

    Emily Baxter · November 11, 2013
  • Paul N.

    While the location is ideal, the hotel is not. £9.99 a day for wifi, £32 a day for parking (which is not even valeted), and ATROCIOUS soundproofing in the rooms. Not worth the price.

    Paul Newman · October 27, 2013
  • Matt B.

    You have to pay £8 if you want to use their own pool. Even if you are staying there! Poor expensive wifi. Small rooms.

    Matt Barringer · October 22, 2013
  • Rob B.

    Good location but tiny tiny rooms. Nice enough. Feels over priced by I guess that's London. Decent breakfast.

    Rob Borley · October 17, 2013
  • William B.

    Great location in Central London & while the rooms are small that didn't bug me. What *did* bug me was the having to pay £10 for wifi (per day!) & the connection wasn't even that great.

    William Butler · September 13, 2013
  • Steve R.

    Non-guests can't buy wifi access despite misleading login page.

    Steve Rudland · August 19, 2013
  • Krzysztof G.

    Hotel is much better in real that in some reviews. Many nice and helpful people work there. Nice place, perfect location and not expensive in some offers. Very good restaurant.

    Krzysztof Gibek · August 12, 2013
  • Dennie

    Great hotel, until you enter the room... It is so tiny! And i realy missed a mini bar.. The service and location are super!

    Dennie · August 5, 2013
  • Alesha D.

    Room was nice, but small. Good location near the High Street Kensington tube. It was a VERY crowded hotel and it was hard to get help at the front desk when I needed directions, etc. Expensive WiFi!!

    Alesha Dailey · July 30, 2013
  • Anna Z.

    The room is too small and the cleaning so bad, not worth 300 euros per night

    Anna Zito · July 10, 2013
  • Robert O.

    Horrible experience - small rooms, disconnecting Internet, noisy construction.

    Robert OConnell · June 13, 2013
  • David P.

    £8 to use the gym as a resident, even though it is 3/4 shut due to refurbishment. Tip left on a £10 charge for poor quality WiFi. Everything is a further charge.

    David Pollard · May 22, 2013
  • Chris B.

    £10 a day for wifi and poky rooms.

    Chris Barker · April 11, 2013
  • Chris B.

    Poky rooms and £15 extra for breakfast? I can't believe I came here again.

    Chris Barker · April 9, 2013

    You need to pay for Internet ...

    JIMBOW · January 14, 2013

    This hotel isn't prepared to cater for small children even though they will take money off you to upgrade your room to get a cot. Couldn't even get a high chair at breakfast.

    Karen Kershaw · October 21, 2012
  • Liv H.

    Great reception at arrival. Small but good room. Everything lived up to expectations, and no nobody pays me say this!

    Liv Houlberg · September 23, 2012
  • Jackie M.

    Pay the extra £20 to upgrade. Larger newer room. Still a bargain at around £80! Bathroom smart, shower could be more powerful. Public areas lovely now refurb complete

    Before the rebuild quality has developed. The place is strategic in central London. I'll be glad to come back

    Pitu Blanco · August 10, 2012
  • Brandon B.

    Of course the website photos are only of the newly renovated areas i.e. the lobby and prob a display room of what it will eventually look like. Rooms are small an out dated. Bar is a ripoff. Don't go

    Hotel muito confortável porém o café da manhã e o Wi-Fi são pagos separadamente.

    Вай фай не соответсвует своей дорогущей цене, действует только на одном устройстве; комнаты очень маленькие, мини-бара нет, ванные принадлежности не в полном комплекте; вообще отель не на 4ку

    Nastya Krukova · May 4, 2014
  • Denis Isakov

    Хорошее месторасположение! Маленькие комнаты! Дорогой wi-fi! Плохой сервис! Не работает АС! Никогда не приезжайте сюда!!!
