I booked this hotel for a concert at the Royal Albert Hall. The location was great and Kensington High Street is a lovely place to eat, especially in the sun but the hotel was disappointing for a 4 star.
I specifically chose the place for the adjacent gym and pool but these were hugely disappointing. The pool is very small but is also used for children's swimming lessons during the day. I therefore paid £7.50 not for a restful swim and jacuzzi but for a 5m by 1m area of pool and a small lukewarm jacuzzi.
The rooms too were disappointing. I regularly stay at the radisson grafton by Euston which is also a 4 star but which has much larger rooms. Ours was a corner room which was tiny although luckily the air con was effective.
Finally breakfast was mayhem. I'm not sure of it was a particular busy Tuesday night or if the restaurant is just too small for the hotel but there were very few spare tables at 9am and the place was crowded and noisy.
I had hoped for a relaxing and comfortable short break but this was not what I got at the Rembrandt I'm afraid. I won't be staying there again. Probably need to pay more in that part of town.
