We stayed at the hotel for night only on Saturday 7th June the main purpose of our visit to see a show that night. I wish it could have been for longer, very clean, very friendly staff, excellent breakfast & a very convenient location for bus & tube for central London.
We did book & use the hotel car park but noticed on arrival that you can park in local streets after Sat 1.30pm & Sunday free of charge.

Stayed there for one night on a business trip. Very easy to find and the concierge are fabulous for a London hotel.

The room description of a decent size however the decor was dated and the bathroom felt cramped. The room was clean and tidy and the bed was comfortable

I can't praise the concierge team enough, really friendly bunch of guys who look super busy but always give you the feeling you are a priority.

Three stars due to the look and feel, I was expecting more of a modern clean look in this location

Don't be fooled into staying here because of a great discounted rate, this hotel cons you into paying over the odds to stay at different, inferior accommodation.

You can imagine our delight at finding this prestigious hotel offering a great rate on one of the global hotel websites, for a weekend stay. A perfect way to spend my birthday! Can you appreciate then, how thoroughly disappointed and disillusioned we felt when we checked-in, were told that the hotel was over booked and as a result we were being moved to the hotel next door.

Yes, it was all done with smiles, apologies and that 'false' politeness that typifies fake and insincere service, but to add insult to injury we had to wait almost an hour to check-in to the second hotel, totally ruining our plans for the afternoon.

The second hotel (Baileys) was clean, reminiscent of all the hotels converted from former Edwardian mansion blocks and the long, long corridors were so well lit that my eyes hurt! But there were no facilities, the rooms tiny, no air con, windows that didn't open - in fact, everything was just 'tired'.

BUT, the biggest doozy was that the rack rate of this second hotel (shown on my room card) was 20% LESS than we'd paid!! (no refund though).

Based on my experience, the Millennium Brand is now associated with words like dishonest and misleading. I won't be coming back and my 'lifetime value' is therefore a fraction of what it could have been, if only I'd received the level of quality I'd anticipated. I'm not naïve about hotel overbooking policy, I stay in enough for business - and I've passed on my thoughts about Millennium to my corporate travel department; I think hotels are being naïve not to understand that social media now means a disappointed customer tells a lot more than ten other people...

Thoroughly disappointed!

We stayed here this weekend and enjoyed it however there were a couple of things that slightly disappointed us. Firstly whilst our room was very clean and the housekeeping did an excellent job, the location wasn't the best. We stayed in room 294 and there was literally no view and there was a party in the function room attached to the hotel - where it was practically facing our window. Luckily the party was in the day time but this would have been a big issue had it of been in the evening because the music was very loud. Another thing which disappointed us was Gloucester Road train station line not operating for months. We got the tube from Euston to our hotel but the nearest stop was South Kensington which is about a twenty minute walk. Didn't actually bother us too much but just annoying when Gloucester Road station was two minutes away. Having said that I would definitely recommend this hotel as it is very professional and the Concierge in particular being excellent

Dear Reviewer,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on tripadvisor.com following your recent stay at the Millennium Gloucester Hotel, London Kensington.

I was delighted to hear that you found the hotel value for money, enjoyed our central location and cleanliness and gave us five stars for our service. I will be sure you pass on your favourable feedback about our concierge team.

From the 24th May until mid December 2014 the Piccadilly Line service will not stop at Gloucester Road Underground (Tube) station due the refurbishment of the two Piccadilly Line elevators. Please be advised that Piccadilly Line trains stop at all other stations. Gloucester Road station is still open and operates a District Line and Circle Line service from the station. The station is less than 100 metres from the hotel entrance.

If you are using the Piccadilly Line service to Gloucester Road, we recommend you change at Earls Court for a District Line train to Gloucester Road station or alternatively change at South Kensington station for a District Line or Circle Line service to Gloucester Road. Further information is available from our concierge, The Millennium Gloucester Hotel website or via the ‘Transport for London’ website.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the Millennium Gloucester Hotel, London Kensington sometime in the future.

Thank you for your review.

Kind regards
Chris van Dam

Lovely hotel, courteous staff,and really great location. A Tube station across the street and walking distance to several attractions. We did take a room with two singles instead of a double because we arrived very early in the day. They let us go to a room hours early so we could leave our bags and start exploring London!

Very attentive and courteous staff and a location that simply cannot be beaten for convient access to all London locations (via the Gloucester Road Tube adjacent to the hotel). Easy walkable access to the Victoria and Albert Museum and Hyde Park. We also found a number of good, reasonably priced eateries/pubs in the immediate area. We stayed six days before setting out for the Cotswolds and enjoyed every minute. We booked with breakfast included (a very hearty hot/cold buffet each morning that got us off to a running start). We heartily recommend this property!

We stayed for 7 nights recently at the end of May and it was the best location we had ever stayed in when visiting London. Right across the road from the Gloucester Road Tube station which has access to I think 3 different lines making getting around so easy.

We initially booked a Club Room so we would get the breakfast and wifi in the room all included. It was exceptionally busy at the hotel. We arrived late and there was an issue with the room but after discussing it with Melanie Hauff the Senior Guest Relation Office she immediately fixed it, showed us a few other rooms which were all very nice and the rest of our stay was wonderful. They were concerned we were not happy with the room's maintenance and they fixed it. We stayed in room 755 and it was lovely. It is in a quite spot the hotel and beds are good so slept well. Breakfast was great as in lots to choose from and very helpful and friendly staff in the breakfast room. We would stay there again as the service and care is good and exceptional location for getting places.

Room Tip: We stayed in 755 and it was great. The 5th floor rooms might be better for business people or peopl...
