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

    Well located nice hotel in South Kensington. 5 minute walk from South Kensington Tube makes it ideal for both Heathrow and for central London. Room was a decent size for central London and the common areas were comfortable. Staff were very helpful, especially the concierge team.

    Holiday stay

    Beautiful lobby and lounge area. The staff is extremely helpful and kind. However, the rooms are very small. Great location, however! Perfect for the Holiday season. Very festive inside!
