          • Single
            9.2

            The hotel was very comfortable and helpful. My room was bigger than most single rooms that I have stayed in and the amenities were good.

            The overal appearance of the hotel was excellent but some of the work stations particularly in the dining room were rather shabby, also the restaurant for breakfast was rather small. The price of the breakfast was not included in the price of the room was rather expensive, although there were excursion guests where breakfasts were obviously included in the price they paid.

          • Single
            5.8

            We had a large party of European Senior Managers booked into the hotel for up to 3 nights each. The rooms were incredibly small, to the point of being claustrophobic. The hotel corridors are like a labyrinth and would certainly benefit from some detailed sign-posting.

          • Single
            9.6

            Very good sized single room. The walls are a bit thin, but it was only a bit noisy during the day. Location very close to Tube station.

          • Couple
            7.4

            Great Location, fair price. Although the room was small for two people, I recommend the hotel due to its closeness to the gloucester road metro station. (The room carpet & the sink in the bathroom need to be changed)

          • Single
            7.0

            Great location, ~ 50m from Gloucester Road tube station. The room was a deluxe room and had a very large bed, lots of space and a desk to work at.

            The room had not been cleaned properly on arrival: the two waste baskets were unemptied and a towel was on the floor. However, everything else was in order.

          • Single
            8.2

            The room was large and the bed comfortable. Furnishings need to be updated - however, heavy curtains kept light and noise out. Breakfast was good and the serving staff delightful.

          • Couple
            8.8

            Great location for all the museums and shopping in Knightsbridge. Found hotel to be very clean and staff very helpful and pleasant.

          • Single
            9.6

            Very well situated and not too pricey for a quality hotel in central London.Compared to my usual lifestyle I think the term to use is high class!

          • Couple
            7.0

            was not too pleased at being woke up at 9am by the maid asking to clean our room, when we were not due to check out until 11 am.

          • Older travelers
            7.8

            Good bar, nice atmosphere and helpful staff - gave us an easter egg!

          • Older travelers
            7.8

            Reception staff were kind. Spacious and quiet bedroom, as well as clean and modern bathroom, are good for relax stay. Very convenient to and from Heathrow, also for shopping and sightseeing.Our stay at this hotel was second time. We will select this hotel again if we shall have a chance of visiting London. S.T, Japan

          • Older travelers
            7.4

            Very dissapointed breakfast was not included. Saw tours come and go and know they paid a lot less for thier rooms and had their breakfast included We stayed nine days and thought the management could have given us at least one breakfast. Pr nor good and will not recomment the hotel to anyone. Also never except first day were drinking glasses ever put in our room. We had to use coffee drinks for water.

          • Couple
            9.6

            We got a free upgrade and the bedsize and room size was very good. Location is good as it is easy very close to Gloucester Road tube station so easy access to get around. Staff were friendly - check in and check out was very quick and easy.

            We had a horrible view as it was towards the center of the hotel. Our room was right next to the elevator room, so if you are a light sleeper, you will be kept up by the doors slamming of people going in and out - but since we had a great bed, we slept right through it all ! :) ps. The elevators were really slow, so we mostly just used the stairs!

          • Single
            9.6

            Efficient staf.f the building itself my room in particular. Proximity to underground

          • Single
            7.8

            Good location, just across from Gloucester Rd tube station. Clean rooms and relatively large for London standards. Separate bathroom in a separate room on the lower level of the room was a nice touch.
