“NOT SO HOT!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 December 2003

Just got back form a 5-night stay at this hotel. It was a little tacky. The picture of the bar shown on the internet site was obviously taken several years ago - not all the bright blue upholstry is faded and stained. The twin room we had was tiny tiny tiny -- ( you had to sit on the bed to open the closet door

Hardly a 3 star hotel. i would say an average 2 star at the best. No peeling paint, no bugs, nothing that obvious. I had a small twin room in the "lower ground floor" (basement). Thankfully we weren't in our room very often - it was REALLY small. The bathroom had obviously been recently re-modeled and the room itself was basically clean (the bedspreads could've gotten a bit closer to the washing machine). I would recommend this hotel if you're only going to stay 2 to 3 days. We were there for 6 days.... and would have prefered someplace nicer. It's definitely BUDGET. And with the dollar at such a low value these days... that's a strong plus. If you're looking for Okay.. and just a place to crash at the end of the day - this might be the place. Make sure you check the internet and shop around for the best price available. It takes the sting out of the room itself when you get a good deal.

Craven Gardens Hotel is a nice 3-star property with easy access to the underground and buses. Kensington Gardens is only a block away and across the street from the hotel are a couple of convienience stores for snacks, newspapers, phone cards ect. A low-key pub with outdoor seating is next door. The rooms are smallish, probably average for a 3-star property in London. Rooms were very clean, bathrooms modern,and wonderfully comfortable beds. Downside is there are no chairs in the room, but they did have a lounge which was nice for just sitting around. If you are a light sleeper would recommend you request a room off street or take earplugs. The hotel is recently under new ownership. The front desk staff was extremely helpful and friendly. 2-3 blocks walk away there were a variety of places to eat ranging from Burger King, McDonalds and Pizza Hut to some wonderful ethic resturants.
