My husband and I stayed at the Milestone hotel in the summer of 2010. The hotel's location is fabulous and we had a great time. High Street Kensington is just a few steps away in one direction, and Knightbridge is a short taxi or bus ride in the other direction. Hyde Park is just across the street, which was great for morning jogs. We both lived in London for years and know the city well, and this really is a great location to stay.
The hotel itself is very charming and quaint. The decor is very old-fashioned english, very London. Our room was very cute, but the bathroom felt a bit too old, and our sink was partly blocked. Service was good, but I wouldn't say it was the best we ever experienced, and I'm surprised everyone else found it so amazing. No complaints, but nothing too memorable either.
The wellness area of the hotel in the basement was disappointing, it looked completely different to the pictures on the website!
Instead of eating in the hotel in the mornings, we ended up having breakfast upstairs at the wholefoods market on Kensington High St which was fun.
I would recommend this hotel to others, and would possibly stay here again myself, but only after checking out other options.
