of TripAdvisor Travelers recommend this hotel
We booked our trip to London spontaneously and since we had never been there, we relied on the travel agent to choose an affordable and convenient hotel. We couldn't have been happier with the location. This hotel was no more than 3 - 5 underground stops to almost all of our desired sightseeing locations. We stayed in a room for 3 and the accommodations were more than adequate. The staff was friendly and helpful and we kept he concierge busy with multiple requests for tickets and outings. We received helpful advice on restaurants and sightseeing opportunities. I highly recommend this hotel and particular this location. Kensington is a beautiful area just far enough away from the crowds, but close enough to be in the heart of activity within 10 minutes if desired.
"Such a positive experience"
When we arrived I was a little dismayed as the check in girls were not at all friendly, but then we went to breakfast and were blown away by the genuine friendliness of the staff. Housekeeping was poor - although there were three of us we kept having to ring for an extra towel each night. Having said that, the amazing staff made up for anything that lacked. Breakfasts were great, rooms reasonably spacious but we were surprised to not have a fridge. Great location - walking distance to many things. would I stay here again' Yes I would.
"Good choice for South Kensington"
I've used this hotel four times now and have been happy every time. Pleasant service by friendly staff, attractively presented outside and in the lobby, and a great location at the bottom of Queens Gate. I've stayed here whilst in London for court hearings so haven't spent much time around the immediate area, but it is well placed for museums and a brisk walk straight up Queens Gate will bring you to Hyde Park, near the Queen Victoria monument and the Albert Hall. It's a 10 minute easy walk from the South Kensington Tube Station and close to a few restaurants and smart shops. It could do with a gym, but I understand from other reviews that is in hand. The quality of the rooms is a little variable: I've had both great rooms and some that are a little small and disappointing, but it seems that joining Hilton Honours gets you a better room. Everyone gets a warm cookie too (nuts in it). Haven't tried the restaurant yet, as I'm travelling alone, but maybe next time. All in all, a hotel I will recommend to my friends.
We booked this hotel for an overnight stay as we were visiting London for a concert at The Royal Albert Hall. The hotel is situated on Queensgate and Queensgate is very close to the concert venue, but the hotel is at the furthest end. It took approximately 15 mins. for us to walk it, and was no problem, but may be for someone less able. The reception staff and those in the restaurant were charming and we felt welcome. The room was good, with a comfortable bed and modern bathroom. Our only problem was that we could not adjust the temperature, although we did try. We would be happy to return.
"Professional and friendly hotel"
We were impressed by the genuinely friendly, efficient and professional service at this hotel. The room was spotlessly clean and modern. The bed extremely comfortable and all breakfast needs accommodated.
