Thank you very much for your comments

The room was, despite the fact that it was called an Executive room, a bit crampy. There was about 40cm space between the bed and the cupboard where the TV sat on. The inputs couldn't been used and the bluetooth speaker was out of service. But I was lucky to get a room on the top floor (27th) and therefore had an excellent view over London (a part of). Very low water pressure in the bathroom (shower).

Dear Frank, Thank you for your review and your feedback, I am glad, your enjoyed the view. Some of he rooms on the higher floors are smaller, but we have also larger Executive Rooms with a nice view available. On a next stay, do not hesitate to request this upon check-in. Finally my apology for the maintenance issues, those have been addressed to our Maintenance Team. Regards. Jean Claude Marquette

Perfect location

Easy to get to from Gatwick Airport by train to Victoria and underground to Gloucester Road station, which is just around the corner from the hotel. The area is beautiful. Nice museums just nearby. Portobello Market, Kensington Gardens and South Kensington´s shopping streets also quite near. We really enjoyed our holiday and will use this hotel also during our next visit. The staff was friendly and the breakfast delicious. Thank You!
