“Location and comfort”
Reviewed 18 September 2010

I was worried before I got there, but it was great. Full breakfast every morning, the room was comfy and a nice bathroom, too. Right across from the Victoria and Albert and right on the bus line. A FABULOUS location. I'd stay there again!

This hotel is over-crowded with tourists from all over the world. The staff are all foreigners and many hardly speak English. Breakfast is good, but do not try dinner. My valuable pearl earrings which cost $450 were stolen from my toiletries bag in the bathroom. The hotel manageress denied that the theft happened, did not make an investigation and did not report it to the police. Small safes are supplied in the room, on the floor, and difficult to operate, so keep your valuables in your numerically-locked suitcases at all times. - that includes cell-phones, i-pods, calculators, passports, etc.

Sarovahotels, Manager at The Rembrandt, responded to this review, 23 September 2010
Unfortunately this allegation of theft was not bought to the hotels attention until six weeks after the guest had departed. Due to the long delay we could only advise the guest to contact the police directly to report the matter as they will not deal with us on such issues after such a period. We are sorry that Janellicott was unable to use the in room safes provided which are floor mounted so that they may be bolted down for added security.

Stayed here every year for the last 12 yeays, rarely had any problems.
Dealt with very professionally. Rooms are always of a good standard, not cheap but this is in the centre of London, an excellent location. If we weren't happy here we wouldn't keep going back. Some very good restaurants nearby, especially the Thai and organic.

The hotel is comfortable,breakfasts filling if a bit monotonous,location excellent near major museum complex and Royal Albert Hall, good communications by bus and underground.

Unforeseen problems :too many stairs at South Kensington station which means difficulties for people with walking disabilities or having heavy suitcases.

There were several false fire alarms during our stay that may have been caused by the renovation work in parts of the hotel-meaning also much hammering during daylight hours.

Are there any good hotels in London? I mean for less than 300£ a night, i am not sure. Anyway The Rembrandt at least is trying to be, difficult I know, old buildings, strange room sizes, guess there are not two rooms that are similar

One of the things my wife and I always talk about when home in London, is how no english people seem to be working in London anymore.. Reception was indian, Consierge was Italians, restaurant and Bar seemed all to be swedish and house keeping like alwats from the Caribbean.

Friendly check in, no hassle, two tier lobby with a rather boring looking restaurant, did not even try the breakfast, never pays in London anymore, with all the polish and russian run pub's offering better fry up for half the price anyway

Small but comfortable rooms, like always in london room is either to hot or to cold, never seems to be just right.

But all in all not an unpleasent experince, great location across from V&A and most of everything with in walking distance...just the London price that I can not help to have a problem with

The Rembrandt is a big commercial hotel that is well located, not too far from the tube for easy transportation.
The breakfast is very good and the public areas fine. The single room was very small, but clean. The hotel has concierge services that are helpful.
