“Great hotel and brilliant location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 November 2004

I stayed in an apartment with a bedroom and a separate kitchen/living room. It was very big, the decor was modern and fashionable and the bed very comfortable. The location is perfect being a couple of minutes from a busy shopping street and two tube stations. Its near Hyde Park and 45-60 mins walk to Oxford St. The hotel contributed to making a romantic weekend in London extra special. I would definitely stay there again.

The reception looks very basic, but the staff are extremely helpful, I'd say the nicest I've ever come across in any hotel in any city. The night receptionist even came out to greet me as I was returning at night with lots of revellers in the street. (celebrating a sporting win!)

"studioette" apartment was a bit small, but fine for one person. For long stays and 2 people, upgrade to the executive apartment.

The hallways are narrow (large cases could be a bit tricky!) and not at all impressive, but the rooms are very adequate (dvd, cd, tv, magazines, tea, coffee, fully equipped kitchen/dining area and a really comfortable bed)It's clean and modern so for a few nights stay it's perfect. It's simply a little shabby around the edges.

I have stayed across the road in the slicker "somerset bayswater" apartments. The "kensington gardens" seems a bit shabby in comparison. Maybe if I didn't have the sister hotel to compare it to I'd be more satisfied all round.

You can do a lot worse than stay here when in London!! Easy walking distance to Portobello Rd. and so close to 2 tube stations, tons of shops/restaurants etc. Amazing location!
