Good spot
Front desk service was outstanding. Staff were friendly and efficient. Oddly enough all that service is from a hotel two doors down. Room was small. We were on the 5th floor with no lift... that was rough and the kind of thing that would have been good to know when we booked. Loved the neighborhood and access to Kensington Palace Gardens and Notting Hill.

The location of the property is good as it is very central and close to Hyde park. It is vey accessible to different restaurants, fast food and pharmacy, and the tube station. The hotel itself is a little disappointing. We were booked in the top 4th floor and there's no lift. No AC but it is alright, however we cannot even open the window. They provided us with a small fan. The space inside the room is limited, walls are very thin we can hear the shower running in the next room. There's a background noise every night, like water filling up a tank and would last all throughout the night. The bathroom is clean, and it seems new and refurbished. The room has an antique-y style, the bed was comfortable. I felt like we paid a little extra but since we came to spend New Year's Eve in London, this is better deal as some places are very expensive.
