        • Older travelers
          7.0

          The staff were so helpful and friendly and the atmosphere was very welcoming.

          The ensuite bathroom was very small and could not be used by two people at the same time. Tea and coffee making facilities would be a great advantage.

          no tea or coffee in room. avalable in lobby all the time but only lukewarm

          6.6

          The staff were efficient and pleasant.

          The radiator in my room did not turn off. It was very hot and I had to have the window open all night despite freezing conditions outside. There was one small lift for 4 floors. It was very slow and in use by the cleaner when I needed to get to the 3rd floor.

          location. staff friendliness. good breakfast in a charming dining room. safe in the room

          Everything else is clean but the carpets really need to be replaced!!!

          The rooms were tidy, breakfast had a good choice and the staff were helpful.

          For the price the facilities could have been better and a cooked breakfast could have been included.

          6.4

          Staff helpful and polite. Clean.

          Breakfast could have started earlier, 7.30 was not quite early enough for my particular requirments, also it did seem a little chaotic, there did not seem enough staff I only saw one member of staff serving toast.

        • Group of friends
          4.2

          The hotel needs a refurb and they should have kettles in the room. The pillows were rock hard too.

        • Older travelers
          3.2

          This hotel was once one of the jewels among small London hotels. Now it is dirty, shabby, and understaffed. please don't recommend this hotel to your customers.

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          hotel was comfortable.

          the continental breakfast was a bit sparse,just the addition of a boiled egg would have helped(free as opposed to a charge of £1.50)

        • Couple
          2.8

          free wifi in common areas; good location near South Ken station

          the room overlooked a very busy street and since it was hot we had the window open, which made it impossible to sleep. We asked to change rooms to an interior but were told that the hotel was full but we saw people checking out and in all day. Room was outdated and not comfortable - pillows were cardboard thin and there were only two. We ended up checking out a night early.

        • Single
          7.0

          Great location: walkable- or a short cab ride- to many of London's top shopping areas and restaurants.

          No coffee/ tea making facilities in room. TV very old and small w/ bad reception and only local programs.
