Acceptable hotel close to central London
On the Piccadilly line, this hotel is within walking distance to major attractions and 2 blocks from Gloucester Rd station which will get you to the others and to and from Heathrow. The hotel is a converted and renovated London row house as are a number of others in the area. The rooms are small but the close vicinity to the tony Kensington, Knightsbridge and Mayfair areas more than makes up for that. For cars guys, the Ferrari, Lamborghini and McLaren dealerships are within 2 blocks of each other on Gloucester Rd. For the ladies, Harrod's is on Gloucester as well. Kensington Palace/Park, Royal Albert Hall and the Victoria & Albert Museum are a 10 minute walk. The hotel offers a nice buffet breakfast each morning, just make sure that it's included in your room rate. They also have a nice bar/lounge and an upper end restaurant. However, this hotel's most appreciated asset is a handheld device called 'Handy'. Loaded into this cell phone-sized handset are restaurant recommendations, tour descriptions and MapQuest type GPS driven directions. You simply plug in your destination, it knows your location, and it plots the route for you. Slip into your pocket and take it with you; it's free for guests to use! Saved our bacon several times.
