Good location, near Kensington high street. On-site parking which is a big plus in London, though it’s £29 a day. Room was fine- clean, spacious. Bed was big and comfortable. Air conditioning in the room. I stay here regularly as it’s affordable, convenient and has parking, however the hotel is pretty dated with the furniture and decor in the rooms. Some of the light switches didn’t work. The flush didn’t always work properly. No room service (possibly due to COVID-19?) Could do with a bit of modernisation and maintenance. I’d stay here again though.
