Not alot really. We only had very hot water in our room. could not even brush our teeth. We had to use bottled water. So could not even shower. Complained twice and told they will turn the heat down and the problem was we were above the boiler room. ??? I had my 5 yr old with me. This hotel was not good. :o(
Our 2nd visit to this hotel. This time our request for a room had not been notified. Clumsy exuses for offering us a tiny room just behind the reception. Only when when I walked out to go and book a room the 'green' hotel opposite my spouse called back saying they have now arranged a decent room. Where there's a will there's a way! Why not do this in the first place?
The rooms were clean and the underground was close at hand.
The breakfast was from 7.30 to 9.30, but dead on 9.30 everything was cleared away, which is too soon to get anytning.
Staff were friendly and helpful
Very noisy rooms (extremely noisy slamming doors, noisy facilities...), some kind of soundproofing would be desirable
Very poor hotel I have stayed in better travelodges
The hotel was in a good location for me and there was a bath.
The carpet was very dirty and stained.
A clean and confortable room. Had all the things we wanted for an overnight stay after watching a concert at the Royal Albert Hall.Good value.
The breakfast was too basic
Reception staff were very freindly, although our room was in the basement it had french doors which opened out onto a pleasent little courtyard. The room was clean and tidy. , with plenty of tea and coffee. The bathroom was clean and the bed was comfortable. The hotel is also set in a nice area which was very close to transport. I would definately stay again, and would recommend it.
Good location for stay
Lack of hot water in our room, not able to communicate with our freinds in another room as they did not have an internal telephone.
Location is excellent for a short break, whilst hotel staff was more than helpful to address our needs and queries
Breakfast was really below standard
I have stayed at this excellent hotel several times. I find it most comfortable with preference for rooms at the front overlooking the gardens. What I like so much is all the space for hanging clothes and drawers. The staff are pleasant and and helpful.
Staff really helpful. Rooms quite big. Excellent location, just 5min walking from loads of museums and Harrods.
The continental breakfast really poor. No restaurant, so no even the posibility of having dinner at the hotel.
The beakfast ... it was rather very much the same every day. There was not much to choose. The service was ok. The prize was to high compared with the standard
the staff at the front desk and elsewhere were very helpfull. the hotel is very close to the tube station and to the nearby attractions.
the breakfast should be more extensive, like having fresh fruits and eggs, etc.
The location is excellent just a couple of minutes walk from the tube, coffee shops etc, easy walking distance to parks, museums and other attractions.Hotel room was clean, a good size and we were able to leave our bags after checking out.
