                  On arrival given a very small room with obscure window overlooking noisy aircon plant but told it was an upgrade with king bed. we felt insulted to be offerd such a room when our reservation was for a superior double and the upgrade comment was a joke.

                • Single
                  9.6

                  everything was well organised and nothing was too much trouble for the attentive helpful staff, they made our two day stay very enjoyable

                  quite expensive

                  Breakfast was excellent.Locality great for underground.

                  Although on the top floor,after having paid for an upgrade,the room was small and the smell of cooking was coming into the room

                  The staff were extremely helpful, polite and informative. The hotel was very clean, the breakfast was excellent and the room was most comfortable and cosy.

                  Could not fault it!

                  Tastefully decorated. Good location.

                  Very small "superior" room. Unsightly bedroom view poorly concealed by frosted glass. Staff could sharpen up quite a bit.

                  The hotel location is excellent, and the hotel staff are very helpful.

                  The Standard Double Room was quite small. The sound from next door could be heard clearly. My television was not working on the first night.

                  very nice bar lounge and reception area although some staff not that friendly. Thought food over priced for what you got.

                  Hotel staff extremely friendly and helpful, location excellent for shopping and sightseeing, only five minutes walk from South Kensington tube station. Loads of places to eat, drink and just enjoy the atmosphere

                  Room was smallish for a superior double room and it was a little noisy, but not so much so that it spoiled the experience
