Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
The bedding was clean however the overall cleanliness of the rooms was bad. I had two rooms for our stay. The one room had a piece of gum stuck on the wall. I alerted the staff but they never removed it in 5 days. The other room had left over food in the refrigerator. The safe didn’t work in the room, the pull out couches were broken and you couldn’t close it up, the throw pillows had stains on them, there was what appeared to be red wine stains on the wall and the paint was chipping.

The card lock kept needing to be reprogrammed. Many trips to the front desk. Other than that, everything was great.

This property is on a great location next to Hyde Park and short walk to Notting Hill. However, it is a little dated and the rooms small. We stayed at other hotels near Trafalgar and Tower of London and found them more modern and larger rooms with comparable if not better views. We paid about the same at all 3 hotels and I felt this hotel was overpriced for what we got.
