Wear tube station and museums

Pros: Near tube and the venue I needed to go to.
Location: Museums. Albert Hall. Kensington Palace
Hotel staff very welcoming. The room was a bit chilly but then it was very cold weather. Food good.

Great hotel

Pros: Character and staff
Cons: The bathrooms should be of equivalent style and quality as the rooms
Location: Perfect location to the museums, Hyde Park, royal Albert Hall and Gloucester Road station.
The staff at this hotel really are what make this place shine. We were also lucky enough to get put into a deluxe room that had recently been renovated. The stylish decor did not necessarily extend to the bathroom and generally, as with other reviews, this tends to be the main downfall at this hotel, but for the one night the bathroom served it's purpose fine (minus the intermittent lack of cold water in the shower) but the bed was super comfy and we had so much room. As has been mentioned in other reviews, especially if you get a courtyard facing room, the view is very undesirable and for example, we looked onto the air con units. But in the style of the property, the tall windows benefitted the room by allowing plenty of light in. We ate at the restaurant which was good. I do advise if the option and budget allows, to go for a premium/deluxe room as you will not regret it. You have to consider the age and history of the property. Some rooms may be small, the corridors are maze like, but the character bursts at the seams and the service really shines through.

Weekend concert trip

We chose this hotel for it's location based on the fact that we were attending the Royal Albert Hall for a concert. The only downside was the size of the rooms. We have stayed in London on several occasions and these rooms were by far the smallest we have encountered. We had arrived with a couple of friends who said exactly the same, and they even asked if it were possible to change rooms as theirs had been set out for single occupancy. The request was denied as the hotel was full. We did have an excellent meal at the hotel, the food was lovely. However, we were glad that we were only staying the one night, as any longer would have been too claustrophobic. There was no room to walk around the bed and when my wife had to visit the bathroom during the night, she had to climb over me. Overall, all four of us agreed that we wouldn't consider staying here again because of the room size.

Loistava sijainti metroaseman lähellä, kävely-yhteyksien päässä myös nähtävyyksiä. Lähellä myös ruokakauppa ja ravintoloita. Ystävällinen henkilökunta, aulatilat ja aamiaishuomen siistejä ja viihtyisiä. Erikoispisteet aamiaisesta, joka ei ehkä niin laaja valikoimiltaan kuin joissakin paikoissa mutta hyvin mietitty, laadukas ja hyvä esillelaitto. Alacartesta olisi saanut vielä tilata aamiaislisukkeita mutta ei tarvetta. Siistit huoneet ja hyvä sänky. Ainoa miinukset sijainti vilkkaan kadun varrella, pienehköt huoneet, pieni hissi ja kapeat käytävät rakennuksen alkuperälle tyyppilliseen tyyliin, mutta positiiviset asiat peittosivat helposti negatiiviset. Suosittelen ja menisin itsekin uudelleen.
