Location is excellent - Kensington High Street - great for shopping - close to the Albert Hall and Hyde Park. Very small room and you either have to suffer the heat or the noise of the aircon all night. The place needs a good clean - hair in the shower etc. Staff are OK. The place is a bit of...

This hotel is in a brilliant location - just off the High Street in Kensington. It's actually not that easy to find in the dark - it's above Nandos (but you wouldn't know it once you're inside). The rooms really are teeny but pretty well equipped with nice toiletries, hairdryer, biscuits, and even a speaker for a smartphone - so...

I was in Europe and decided to extend my stay to help my 19 year old daughter to settle into a summer exchange program. The hotel is convenient to tube. Quaint old building. It is not fancy but clean, friendly staff and very reasonably priced. I loved opening my window onto Kendington High Street.

For a 2-day conference I stayed in this hotel. I arrived late in the evening at the hotel, and find the hotel because of the illuminated hotel shield above the door. Since the hotel entrance is just a door of 1 meter it's easily to be overseen. The hotel is a Best Western and 200 meter away from a tube...

After arriving at the hotel, following a hot and sticky journey from Leeds due to the glorious weather, we checked in and asked for a cool drink to revive us...this was supposed to be an alcoholic beverage. Unfortunately due to something to do with awaiting planning approval for an extension, they're alcohol license wasn't active and so therefore couldn't serve...
