Positive Reviews

Utterly Stunning

No one can argue; this locale is a dazzling space to behold A comfortable location with a short stroll to reach many attractions such as Hyde Park, restaurants, museums, the nearby river and easy access to the S Kensington Station The setting being within a residential neighbourhood rather than a bustling city adds to its tranquility Enjoy a cocktail near the fire in the gorgeous lobby library. Flawless.

Divine Staff

Your Best Hotel Experience

The lovely fine touches observed here will surely make this the most memorable and excellent hotel experience of your life Nicely equipped rooms furnished with Nespresso machines, floor heating, delightfully comfortable beds, fantastic complimentary Wi-Fi, wonderfully smelling aromas and ambience from entrance to lobby and onward, plush bathrobes and slippers, snuggly thick towels, turn-down service with bedtime chocolates & notes about the weather forecast, special occasions commemorated with complimentary candies or champagne, with an umbrella provided.

Negative Reviews

Tiny Standard Rooms

Some have felt some of the standard rooms were unbearably tiny. Smaller rooms may have showers unfitting for taller guests and also may be missing some of your favourite furnishings. If space is an issue for you, book a suite.

A/C Shut-Off

Air conditioning is set on automatic shut off after some time, and may need to be reset during the night if you awaken and its too hot in your room.

Noise Annoyances

Outside traffic and passersby as well as adjacent guests' voices may trouble you during the night Bring your earplugs.
