“Lovely little place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 March 2014

Stayed for a couple of nights to get away from it all. Good, central location but still feels like you're entrenched in the London life. Good access to nearby Holland Park (probably one of the best city parks in the world). Rooms are clean, nicely decorated. Pub downstairs great for a nightcap, and the other customers were respectful so we weren't kept up at all (which was a bit of a worry!). Service with a smile. Can definitely recommend, and would come again.

The new layout is great, topped off by the always great food. Rught in the heart of Fitzrovia, it's the perfect place to take clients for a quiet sit down, or simply just an evening with friends.

Get the steak sandwich and an Estrella, you won't regret it.

It's a room, a very clean room, a very small room but at a very good price. Nice decor but up a grubby steep staircase.
30 minute walk to the Royal Albert Hall ( which was why we booked it) and next door to Olympia and a short walk to Earls Court.
Great pub downstairs to eat and relax in and a simple but wholesome continental breakfast.
If all you want is a comfortable place to sleep then it's a bargain!

Room Tip: Room 4 appears to be the smallest

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2013

Good location for High st kensington. Room nice, generally clean, empty bottle left under the chest of drawers from previous occupant. Small supply of coffee, more provided on request. Room very warm and a bit noisy with the window open. Strong smell of cooking, could be worse. Bed comfortable, nice furniture, great TV. Breakfast adequate. All in all good for the cost although we paid £120.00 through on line booking, board outside pub advertised room at £100.00, so suggest you phone the, directly to check price first.
