        • Single

          For the money, the beds and linen were two star

        • Group of friends
          7.8

          Very convenient location. Good facilities. I always stay here when I'm in London

          On this stay the air conditioning was not working. It was very hot in the room because it was summer. The hotel did provide fans but it was not ideal.

        • Older travelers
          7.8

          The hotel was clean and comfortable and overall a nice environment. Close to the tube station!

          The concierges were not that knowledgeable or helpful. They were unaware of local shows and used a basic service to get play tickets that I could have probably bought online just as easily. Also when we asked them later for a delivery, they searched and said they had none, we had to come back and ask again...they found it and said 'Oh, we thought you meant a package delivery, not ticket delivery'. Real air conditioning instead of a swamp cooler would have been nice.

        • Couple
          9.6

          Very friendly staff, clean modern hotel in a great location.

          Mini bar prices, scandalous, even for London!

        • Older travelers
          9.6

          We were able to check in earlier than the check in time and were given the choice of a room on the street side or garden side.Fabulous location close to Glouster Road tube stop as well as the V&A and Natural History Museum.

          The carpet was badly stained.

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          We were really impressed with this hotel - great location, really close to the Gloucester Road tube station and within walking distance of many attractions. Friendly, helpful staff, spacious, nicely decorated rooms, and ours had a lovely view to the churchyard next door, which meant it was quiet as well. Would not hestitate to stay here again.
