    • Disliked: Cleanliness

    The night we checked in, the gentleman at the desk insisted we hadn't paid for the room we reserved. Had to dig through our emails to show him the receipt that we had in fact paid upon booking the room. He looked at the receipt and presumed checking us in - do they not have this information on their system? When we got to the room, our bed sheets, duvet covers and pillow sheets were covered in hair - they obviously hadn't changed the bedding from the previous guests. We had to call to have them change everything. We were thoroughly disgusted at this point. Our tub was backing up with water so we were showering in a pool of water. This honestly wasn't a very comfortable stay for us. Definitely would not recommend.

    Stayed 6 nights in Dec 2019

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

    The hotel is very well situated for the Underground and a number of tourist attractions (Natural History Museum, V&A, Albert Hall, Kensington Gardens). However the rooms facing Cromwell Road suffer badly from the noise of passing trains and road noise at all hours and the double glazing is not very effective at blocking this out.
