We chose this hotel because of the price, so didn't have high expectations. The front desk staff here could not be more helpful. Their knowledge of the neighborhood and recommendations for local eateries were great. One of our group had a dental emergency, and the staff arranged appointments with an excellent dentist right away. The rooms were clean and the continental breakfast was better than we had expected. While not the hotel's fault, it was hot in London, and the London Visitors Hotel has no A/C. Open windows cooled the rooms at night, but the traffic noise was disturbing at best. The nearest tube station is Kensington (Olympia) Zone 2. If you're looking for a clean, inexpensive hotel in a safe neighborhood, consider this one. Be sure to bring your earplugs.

This hotel does NOT deserve the bad reviews, for price location and cleanliness I found it excellent. Having lived in London for years, and around the corner from the hotel for one of these years - this location is fantastic! Travellers to the city might be aware that the term 'hotel' in London can mean anything from a block of flats to a selection of small dirty cupboards serving as rooms- and I have never stayed anywhere in central London so clean. My room was the smallest in the place (they told me so), but quiet, spotless and cleaned daily - FAR superior to other small hotels even on Holland Road ( have stayed at others, as have friends/family so can make comparison) Staff very friendly, very helpful. Did not try their breakfast so can't comment on that the rest is a big thumbs up!

Travelled with collegaues and stayed at this location, hotel would be the incorrect description. Whilst I found the staff friendly, my room was depressing, yellow woodchip wallpaper, sheets and blankets, crittal windows with secondary double glazing, it was like stepping back in time, it was all rather horrible really. Breakfast was continental!! the choice was stale white bread with either jam or marmalade, cornflakes, orange juice, stewed tea or coffee which was ok. there was also Mr Kipling Apple Pies for breakfast and lemon cake which I mistook for a bread and put in the toaster, didn't realise until i was offered it one evening with my coffee. Could be a really nice hotel if only they would spend some money on it, excellent location for exhibitions - real shame really but it is their loss at the end of the day.

room size was cupboard like, no kettle, no reception on arrival, was offered to make coffee which never arrived.
poor quality of breakfast. given a iron to use, later told that "will not be given on future visits"- as if we plan to visit this hotel again(! ha!).
charge applies upto 5 % if paying by card, therefore had to pay by cash.
says free wifi on web page, far from it!! charge rates- 5 £.
no phone in the room to top it all!!
