I chose this Hotel for three reasons 1. The price 2. The location (Chelsea) 3.The character being a victorian style building we thought it might offer an atmosphere that some of the larger group hotels may not offer. Indeed having visited all the major hotel sites and not being able to find something within our budget, I eventually found the St.Joseph Hotel. On the outside it looks lovely. A period property set in the affluent area of Chelsea. The inside however was a trifle disappointing. Our room was situated on the top floor. With no lift, the stairs were steep and by the time My Partner and I reached the top we were exhausted. The bedroom was very small, barely enough room to swing cat, but in fairness it did offer the basics i.e a shower room with a tiny sink and tea and coffee making facities. With the two of us in the room it felt crowded and claustrophobic. As a single it would have just about passed muster, but as a double definately not. The room price of £55 did include breakfast. However this was down in a dark cellar like room with no windows. On the way down to breakfast there was alot of clutter and the stairs were again very steep. Breakfast was ok. However behind the counter were the toaster was positioned must of been 30 to 40 loaves of bread justed piled up. The reception staff were not that helpful, All I will say was that the room was clean. However I wished I'd paid another £15 and booked a group hotel. On a positive note St. Joseph is situated close to a tube station and local bus routes . This Hotel has potential, its a lovely building, but it needs to have more of a friendly atmosphere and bigger rooms
