My Husband booked this at the last minute as me and my son were already in London and needed to stay a couple of extra nights. I was concerned about the location as it's in Zone 2 and it's distance from the tube for walking back at night on our own safely
The hotel is literally a 5-8minute walk from the tube. Exit the tube and turn right, turn right again in front of Sainsbury's Local then left into Lisgar Terrace, and follow the road about to the right. So easy to find. As a single female with my 11 year old son, I was worried it wouldn't be safe to walk around at night. However, the area was mainly residential and felt very safe for the two of us.
The hotel's location was very good for the museums, with South Kensington being a few stops away for the Science Museum and the Natural History Museum.
We stayed in room 5, a double with kitchen facilities. It was very clean. We used the fridge a lot, as the outdoor temperature was so hot and it was really good to have cold drinks. The room was big, having a desk with two chairs, a microwave, small fridge, kitchen sink and crockery and cutlery. It was so much better than we were expecting having read some of the reviews.
Yes, there was no lift, but room 5 was on the first floor, and I am more than capable of carrying my bags up one flight of stairs, having managed on the tube with them! The staff did offer to help carry my bags too.
The area was so quiet, and we slept really well.
Both members of staff we encountered were very pleasant and friendly.
