  • Disliked: Cleanliness

The night we checked in, the gentleman at the desk insisted we hadn't paid for the room we reserved. Had to dig through our emails to show him the receipt that we had in fact paid upon booking the room. He looked at the receipt and presumed checking us in - do they not have this information on their system? When we got to the room, our bed sheets, duvet covers and pillow sheets were covered in hair - they obviously hadn't changed the bedding from the previous guests. We had to call to have them change everything. We were thoroughly disgusted at this point. Our tub was backing up with water so we were showering in a pool of water. This honestly wasn't a very comfortable stay for us. Definitely would not recommend.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

The hotel is very well situated for the Underground and a number of tourist attractions (Natural History Museum, V&A, Albert Hall, Kensington Gardens). However the rooms facing Cromwell Road suffer badly from the noise of passing trains and road noise at all hours and the double glazing is not very effective at blocking this out.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

I found the property to be clean, associates at the front desk were helpful, and the hotel was in a convenient location. I'd like to specifically point that the maid assigned to our room, 1111, did a great job. We met her a few times in the hall, and she was friendly and courteous. I am sad to say that the food in the restaurant was not good. The burger that I ordered medium was overcooked and the fries did not have much flavor. Still, I would recommend this hotel to friends.
