The room was very clean, friendly staff, we were given the room in the sub-floor, with no lights and very small, we asked to change because it was so depressing! We were given a new room on the first floor with street view, and it was great ! A bit noisy because of the traffic but it was ok. The room was very clean, recently renovated, the bed is cheap, but we slept very well. The train station is five minutes walk behind the building, the location is very convenient. I’ll give five star for the service , location and price. Of course there are many other hotels around with higher service, but expect paying higher price .

I was very pleased with the property and would definitely stay there again on my next trip to London. The closest train station was Kensington Olympia, but that is a little bit more of a hassle to get to and from as you have to change. If you don’t mind a bit longer walk then I would go to Shepherd’s Bush, which has a large Westfield mall there too.

Quiet, clean and safe stay. Friendly staff.

Pros: Comfort cleanliness staff and safety
Cons: Ummmmm not sure was really happy with the entire experience
Close to public transportation. Short walk to everything you need. Friendly staff and excellent cleaners. Comfortable beds. New fitout with nice bathroom and kitchenette facilities. Perfect stay for my young family - 2 boys aged 3 and 4. We stayed 7 nights and was happy the entire time.
