Almost a 4 star rating - The downside was the very big bruise I received on my upper left arm from the bathroom vanity. The counter top /sink vanity is too big for the bathroom causing a corner overlap to the toilet. Basically hit my upper arm each time. Grateful that housekeeping replenished all my in-room water. Bathroom products were lovely. The carpet could use a deep vacuum / clean. Everything else was fine.||Great location for exploring Kensington area. Walking distance to the Victoria and Albert Museum which was important to me for this trip. Direct stop from Heathrow on the underground tube. No comment on restaurant or food since I did not use. But always filled up my water bottle in the lobby. Reception staff including concierge where very helpful and friendly.||Would return for location purposes.

I stayed at the hotel recently with family and enjoyed it so much that I immediately booked again for this solo trip. The staff at the hotel are friendly and really helpful and the rooms are spacious and immaculately presented. The bar and restaurant are warm and friendly, just what you want after a cold day sightseeing. Do yourself a favour and order a cocktail during happy hour, you won’t be disappointed! Conveniently located close to the tube, cafes and bars, the hotel offers safety for solo travellers and is also an easy walk to Chelsea, Harrods and Hyde Park. Will definitely book again if I’m in London.
