The Rockwell is situated in London's popular Kensington area, 10 minutes from the Gloucester Road Tube station, 5 minutes from Earl's Court Tube and a 30-minute drive from London Heathrow.
"Location, Location, Location"
The room I stayed at 204 is clean and plenty of sitting chairs for hanging clothes. Even if the room was facing a major street Cromwell road, it was not noisy at all, the hotel have double pane window. The shower has strong water pressure. It is in a main street and easy to access. I would have given them a 5 star if it were not for the missing shower caddy. No shower caddy to put soap, shampoo and other things. I have to put all these supplies on the shower floor, very inconvenient and not hygienic
"Wonderful find in South Kensington"
It is important to recognize that the Rockwell is a 40 room hotel with a variety of room styles and will likely elicit a variety of experiences. My wife and I stayed in a garden room for 1 week. Our overall experience was fantastic! Garden rooms face the courtyard and are sheltered from the street noise. The hotel is located on a busy road, which can be noisy, but the trade off is well-lit, well travelled, safe access to transportation and a variety of restaurants. A lot of reviewers have commented on easy access to Earl's Court (true), but Gloucester Road is a short walk also. The hotel's location is ideal for accessing greater London. PRO's * The courtyard is fabulous. Our garden room in conjunction with the courtyard enabled us to have a wonderful outdoor retreat at the end of a day. If you love outdoor space, the courtyard is what sets the Rockwell apart from other hotels. * Nice linens, towels, robes, and ample closet space. Clean and bright with generally good housekeeping. * Breakfast option is wonderful. Convenient start to each day. Plenty of variety in a cheerful, bright room. CON'S * Our room was described as a king, the bed was smaller than expected. * Minimal electrical outlets in room and 1 was utilized by the wifi router. A small extension cord may be nice addition to your packing list. * HVAC unit in room was a bit noisy. Service during our stay was great. We would not hesitate to stay at the Rockwell again.
"Big and clean room considering the price."
Definitely will stay again. good location, access to nice restaurants, shops and tube. Friendly and helpful staff. waking up with birds singing was so nice. Quiet even next to the elevator, yes, there is a elevator!
Less than 10 mins walk from Earls Ct Tube station, close to bus stops too. Our National Express bus stopped very close by so we didn't need to go to Victoria coach station. A boutique hotel ,we had a large room, very comfortable bed ( tiny bathroom ) but clean and quiet. White Company toiletries. Good breakfast, friendly staff. I'd return.
"Mums Birthday "
Absolutely brilliant. I had previously told them it was my mums birthday and they ensured that there was a lovely bottle of champagne in the room PLUS birthday cake for us both. Very very lovely service, everyone was so friendly from the receptionist, to the barlady and the cleaners!! Room was clean and tidy and perfect for us both. Had an absolutely lovely time and they made it extra special. Will definitely be staying again in the future, couldn't fault it, especially the service. Thank you everyone at The Rockwell for making our stay lovely. Xxx
