I stayed for the week in this hotel that many people described it as "good and well located"; being quite new in London I didn't expect "west kensington" area to be a dodgy one.. Some "guys" in the street were standing in a corner doing nothing which is not very relaxing when you are a young lady on your own...
Luckily I arrived to the hotel in one piece but it toojk me ages to find the address.. It's not that close to the tube station as some of the reviewed mentioned below.
At the moment I stepped in the hotel I asked the receptionist to cancel my reservation so I can find a more decent or at least go back to NH Kensington hotel where I usually stay. The main reason why I didn't even to check in the room is that I did'nt feel safe at all during these 15 mns walk from the tube station.
Sadly the receptionist refused to cancel my reservation as it was already paid so I didn't really have the choice.........
Secondly being a young lady I was expecting someone or the receptionist to take my luggage to the floor where my room is, she just said that they don't do these kind of services so I had to do it myself.. 3 floors later I arrived at the destination sweating and tired. My disappointment just grew up more by looking at the size of the room , the bathroom and the overheating in the whole hotel. It was like being in a sauna, even though I turned off the heating and opened the window.
I woke up late at night ( heating turned off) sweating and was convinced that there should be a mini-bar or bottle of water available.. Of course there was none and had to ask 2 or 3 times before someone brought a 25 cl water bottle in the morning.
To survive my friend and I had to drink the "boiling" water from the mini-sink as even the wtaer cold was not available :(
Anyway, if you are looking for a decent place .. avoid this Simply overheated-shoe box!
