“Location and a superb hotel.”
Reviewed 9 May 2014 via mobile

We stayed for five nights at the Rembrandt in April. We had a grand room which was huge. The bathroom was bigger than some hotel rooms we had stayed in in London. Great staff, great food ,a lovely bar all within walking distance of Harrods, across the road from the V&A etc and with tube and bus stops located very close by. What better place to stay, loved every minute.

Stayed April 2014, travelled as a couple

Dear ammiej

Thank you for your positive review of The Rembrandt and for awarding us your top score. I am over the moon that you enjoyed one of our Grand Rooms, they are our largest bedroom category and we believe offer luxury and comfort, at an affordable rate. As we are not a purpose built hotel all of our rooms do vary in size and shape and I am thrilled that you loved the huge bedroom and bathroom. Like you, we love our location opposite the V&A close to the Natural History and Science Museum as well as world famous shopping in Sloane Street, Harrods and Harvey Nichols. I am delighted that you enjoyed every minute of your stay and I do hope that we have the pleasure of welcoming you back on your next trip to London.

Kind regards

We stayed in the hotel with a 5 years old child, stayed in the Grand room, which was not a huge but enough, with enough place in closet, large bathroom, quiet air conditioning. Very clean. The service was great for everything we needed. Breakfast was very nice, full English, only missing were fresh vegetables. Also the child had everything he wanted. We ate lunch one day in the hotel's bar, very good food as well.
The location of the hotel is perfect, right next to museums and very close to underground, 10 mins by foot from Harrods, 15 mins from HydePark.
Although not cheap, we will probably stay there next time in London.

Dear Lena L

Thank you for taking the time to review The Rembrandt and for awarding us your top score. I am over the moon that you described us as” a perfect hotel in a perfect location”. Apart from the Brompton Suite, our Grand rooms are our highest bedroom classification so they offer the largest area, all have King Size Double beds and all have large bathrooms, with new, quiet air-conditioning. I am thrilled that the hotel was very clean and that the service provided throughout was great. I am delighted that you enjoyed various meals at the hotel and that your five year old had everything he wanted! Like you we love our location close to the museums, shopping, Hyde Park as well as being within walking distance of an abundance or restaurants and cafes plus two underground stations. We really do think we offer everything on our doorstep. We are already looking forward to welcoming you back on your next trip to London.

Kind regards

Stayed at the Rembrandt on a Saturday night. Although check in wasn't until after 2pm, we had got the early train into London and after a walk round Covent Garden went to the hotel to see if we could leave our bags till later. The reception staff were lovely, a room was already available so we checked in there and then.
The room was huge, comfy sofa (sofa bed), and a massive super king bed. The bathroom was very compact and although the door could do with replacing, was very clean.
The hotel is opposite the V&A museum steps, the Science museum and Natural History museum are round the corner - you are slap bang in the middle of Kensington. The road is busy, but didn't hear the traffic from the room. Stood outside at night you can see the lights of Harrods which is a 5 minute walk down the road. South Kensington tube station is a 5/10 minute walk.
The bar was lovely, cocktails were expensive, but a pint of larger/beer was very reasonable.
We slept really well, and I never sleep well in a hotel. The breakfast was lovely, everything you could ask for.
The staff were very pleasant and very helpful.
Cant recommend this hotel enough, would definitely stay here again for our next trip to the big city.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back of the hotel if you are concerned about traffic noise.

Dear Dublinshopper123

Thank you for your descriptive and extremely positive review of The Rembrandt. I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us in the “big city” and awarded us your top score. Our Front Office team always endeavour to try and accommodate guests who arrive early. Over busy periods it is not always possible to have bedrooms ready before 2.00pm, however we will always take your luggage and store it, so that you are free to explore our fantastic capital. Like you we love our location we really do believe that we have everything on our doorstep. Our guests can easily walk to three world famous museums, The Royal Albert Hall, Hyde Park and Buckingham Palace as well as enjoying fabulous shopping at Harrods, Harvey Nichols and Sloane Street. We also have great transportation links to the rest of the capital, as we are in between South Kensington and Knightsbridge underground stations and are opposite a 24hr bus route into the West End. I am thrilled that all aspects of your stay met or exceeded your expectations and that you would definite stay with us again, I do hope that we have the pleasure of welcoming you back later in the year.

Kind regards

We booked 4 nights at this hotel through venere.com. It's very close to V&A Museum and hop on hop off bus stops right in front of hotel.

The staff was the best part of the hotel as we were warmly greeted by everyone from concierge to cleaning staff. We had all our questions answered.

The breakfast was great and they were all doing their diligence in making sure that the tables were wiped and cutleries were placed.

If anyone wants to travel to London, I will not hesitate to recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms are smaller like many other European rooms and the faucets and sinks may look old but they do...

Opposite the V&A museum, close to the Natural History museum, Harrods and The Royal Albert Hall. Not to mention Hyde Park! The staff are very friendly, the rooms clean and modern and the food well priced. A really good London hotel. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: All seemed good to me.

Dining rooms tables cleared whilst still eating, buffet breakfast luke warm, plates cold

Dear Toshtosh1

Thank you for reviewing The Rembrandt, following your stay with us in April. As we are not a purpose built hotel, all of our rooms do vary in size and shape, like most central London hotels not all of our bedrooms have views and I am sorry that you were disappointed with the room allocated to you, which looked across into a residential property. We do try and deal with any guest queries, as and when we are made aware of them, the team do their utmost to offer alternatives or solutions, especially if guests are unhappy with their bedroom allocation. I have made sure your comments have been discussed with my housekeeping and maintenance team, so that the issues highlighted can be resolved. It is always disappointing to receive negative feedback and I do hope you would reconsider and return again in the future.

Kind regards

Great location in knightsbridge and a cozy feel, Rembrandt is a fabulous hotel. Room of a good size comfortable bed and staff were polite and friendly. Chose to stay here due to location of shops and restaurants nearby. Great place to stay!
