    Superb

    Clean rooms, adequate space. Free wi fi. Breakfast included in tariff.

    Insufficient chairs, crockery, cutlery, glasses & toasters for number of guests at breakfast. All booked and not peak season - not well catered for. Kitchen staff under stress trying to maintain turnover of limited equipment.

    Good

    The location was very good for us – quiet, secure area, close to underground station and Imperial College that we needed. The staff was rather friendly. The room was clean and tidy. There is a kettle in the room – so tea and coffee are available any time.

    We didn’t like breakfasts- very poor choice of meals, sometimes a queue – no seats or one has to wait for glasses, cups, juice etc. Hotel refused to provide us with necessary small items: adaptor, threads and needles. There was no a hotel hand-book with phone numbers in the room. The furniture seems to be poor as well- no doors in the wardrobe, no pedestals in the bedside-tables.

    Very good

    Excellent location for natural history, science and v&a museums. Hydepark within walking distance and close to Gloucester Tube station to get around the rest of London. Clean, adequate rooms, quite expensive for what it is but I guess quite good value for London!

    Breakfast pretty basic and no communal space other than reception area

    Fabulous

    The breakfast was very good for the price, plenty of fresh fruit, juices and very good coffee. The breakfast room, though plainly furnished was very efficiently run. My en-suite bathroom was lovely. And the lift between floors worked very well.

    My bedroom was a bit too warm and a bit airless. The bed could have been more comfortable. But the room was quiet.

    Good

    God staff and efficient check in.

    Lifts very small, not sure I would like to be in there with another 5 and the continental breakfast was very basic (bread or toast, no rolls) (cheese or jam, no cold meats). But for the area this was still good value

  • 7.8
    Fabulous

    the location is very convenient -7 minutes away from the undergraund station . the staff is polite &helpful.vrey clean hotel !)

    the smallest bathroom ,i have ever seen ! the shower is very unconvenient !( no conditioners in the room , the absence of mini-bar .

    Fabulous

    Quiet, peaceful location, within easy walking distance of museums and shopping. Easy access to tube station. Our triple room was both spacious and quiet with a contemporary bathroom and good shower. Continental breakfast was good, particularly appreciated fresh fruits. Overall felt this venue represented good value for money.

    More pillows on bed needed. We were still one short on asking for an extra pillow each. Not a major problem though - towels doubled up. Rooms very clean, but bedspread look tired (no bedspread on single bed just blanket, which spoils first impression). Carpet (even though clean) showing signs of careless guests.

    Fabulous

    Location is great, tube is arround the corner, great connection to the airport and to all important coty locations, since 3(!) tube lines. Hotel is very clean, newly renovated, new furniture. Price/value is very good. The Superior room is nice, nothing to claim about.

    The breakfest is pretty chaotic, since not enough tables for all the guests. However, since the breakfest is included in the price, it's ok. I've seen much worse (plastic knives!) for more money..

    Superb

    It was in a good location, felt very safe, and was clean and quiet. All the staff were very helpful and we were made to feel welcome.

    Good

    I asked for a quiet room and only had one other room near me, which helped me get my late work done and sleep better than some hotels I stay at. Bathroom looked brand new and room was serviced daily. Bet was comfy as well. Overall, a good place to sleep.

    My booking read that a continental breakfast was included but nobody mentioned it, so I didn't bother chasing. I would have preferred warmer bedding (the radiator did not work all night and I feel the cold). The photos made the table look bigger, but it was only a bit larger than the tea tray - so I worked on the bed. The shower head was falling off and the water was hard to regulate temperature on 2 mornings (not heating up for ages or boiling hot)

    Fabulous

    Everything's new, looks good, comfortable.

    The internet did not work during any of the four days I spent at the hotel and there was no hurry to fix it.
