Wonderful location just across the street from the Gloucester tube station. Also, it's not a bad walk to the South Kensington station if you need the Piccadilly line, which is being renovated at Gloucester. Beautiful neighborhood for walking and dining; it feels very residential instead of touristy, thought the Natural History museum and V&A are not too far away. Lots of good restaurants and pubs from which to choose.
Room is spacious, maintenance is prompt. The switch on our AC fell off, making it impossible to adjust, but it was quickly replaced. Bed is very comfortable. I wish there were better light in the bathroom, but the facilities are superb. There is some noise from other guests in the hall, but I did not hear street noise at all, perhaps because we faced a rear garden instead of the street. When we arrived, our floor smelled of cigarette smoke. Of course, this is a non-smoking hotel, so I reported this to the desk and didn't smell cigarette smoke again after that. Concierge was helpful, thought the printer in the lobby is not reliable. Overall, we had a very pleasant stay, and I would consider returning.
