    The location is excellent, central, but nice quiet street.

    Hotel is far more dated interior wise than is shown in the pictures online.

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    Proximity to Royal Albert Hall the prime consideration. An excellent hotel into the bargain was a bonus.

    Late evening opening of restaurant. A pre-theatre meal provision at, say, 5.00 pm, would be valued.

  • Older travelers

    Huge room. Very quiet despite central location. We were attending an event at the Albert Hall very convenient for this. Have already re-booked for our next event there.

  • Older travelers

    lovely room - very comfortable

    we were disappointed that the bar and restaurant was not open later on the Sunday night

  • Single

    It's proximity to the Albert Hall. Good size bedroom/bathroom.

    It's outdated and somewhat shoddy decor. Very old fashioned TV.

    24 hour reception and looking after my bag for the day after checking out

  • Older travelers

    Staff were very friendly and helpful and the hotel had a good atmosphere. The location was ideal for attending events in the Royal Albert Hall. We were upgraded to an appartment, so I cannot comment on the standard twin room which was what I booked.

    The pillows in our room were old, uncomfortable and in need of replacement. But the appartment was spacious and well equipped for those making a longer stay than we did. Breakfast was on the dear side but the food was good and the buffet had lots of options.

  • Single

    Well located for easy access to Albert Hall and free-entry museums. Good-sized room; nicely furnished.

    Very soft bed. Couldn't watch TV from any position in room - except the arm chairs.

  • Older travelers

    Easy pleasant welcome. Location. Care had been taken in the decor (not my taste though)

    Curtains did not close. I think there was a trail of sewage outside from the downcomer, running over the flat roof to the left as you look out.

    Excellent location for Royal Albert Hall, literally only a 5 minute walk. Bathroom was clean and plenty of hotwater.

    The fabric on the headboard of the bed was dirty.

  • Single
    9.6

    I loved the fact that even though I had only booked a single room, my accommodation was in fact a suite. Home from home, thankyou so much it made my stay even more special.

    I did find the receptionist quite abrupt on my arrival.

    the staff were very friendly, and the room was really clean and tidy.

  • Group of friends
    8.8

    The location was perfect for our purposes and the room was well kept and presented. Food was reasonably priced and basically the whole package was worth the cost

  • Single

    I was pleasantly surprised by the spacious room. It is a good location (close to Albert Hall etc) and was great value for money.

  • Group of friends
    7.0

    the furnishings and decor is tired and outdated although the bathroom was excellent and ass we only stayed for one night (visit the Albert Hall) this imposing building deserves to have a much smarter decor in the rooms-the reception area was however very smart and the staff very efficient.
