Great location.
Great location for Royal Albert Hall, Hyde park, and Kensington area. The hotel is very nicely presented. The downside for us was the small room.

Enjoyable stay
Great location near Kensington Palace. Nice old house. Pleasant personnel. Good (not amazing) breakfast. Everything in good/great condition except that the carpet in our bedroom needed to be replaced (old and dirty). Small room (par for the course).

Overall great place and price but...
Great location and amazing breakfast for the price of the stay but as usual single room very small though spotless. However television not working. No info re wi fi sign in either in the room or on the card holding the key. Apparently it was in reception but not pointed out. No way in the room to contact reception to ask so any query like this meant a trip 4 floors down to reception. Having said all this for £50 it was amazing value and I would recommend and will certainly stay again.

Ideal location for Royal Albert Hall
Older hotel with friendly staff and decent continental breakfast. The bed was comfortable and nice clean bathroom with lovely white soft fluffy towels, good shower with loads of hot water. The room itself was smaller than expected and downside, there was no drawers only shelves inside a small cupboard which was impossible to put anything in as the shelves faced sideways not to the front with a few hangers for hanging clothes above an ironing board with iron on high shelf above. There was coffee,tea and kettle and bottle of water. Wifi reception was a problem as kept buffering when trying to watch a tennis match. Excellent location for Royal Albert Hall about 7-10 minute walk.

Excellent location, decent stay.
Decent stay. Excellent location, near Hyde park and high street Kensington. Bit of a walk but to the closest tube station. Service was good and the hotel staff were quite friendly and flexible. Only thing that wasn’t as per expectation was the size of the room - it was too small. And given there was no AC, the fan could have been faster. Overall good stay.

Great location if you're visiting RAH
Hotel was ok, rooms very basic, no kettle or coffee making facilities as mentioned online. No bar but great location. Staff very friendly.

Great Location
The hotel was the perfect location for us as we were going to a concert at the Royal Albert Hall and it was within easy walking distance. I was a bit surprised how small and dated the room was and how different the dining room looked from the photo’s on the website. The breakfast was ok and the room was clean although it was incredibly hot - there was a ceiling fan but it was far too noisy to have running at night, we managed to open the windows so it was bearable. The staff were pleasant and helpful and based on the location I would probably stay there again.
