I paid for an upgrade during our stay and I was put into a room with broken windows that was whistling all night from the wind. The room did not have a dresser for us to put our clothes in. Not sure why they put us in such a room. However, at 5am, we went to the front desk and the manager immediately handled the situation and moved us to a bigger and much nicer room. He was very pleasant and clearly understood our situation, his name is John :) Super kind and professional employee. Thank you to John!

Very close to Kensington High Street station, close to shopping. I felt safe at the hotel, and I felt safe walking in the area alone, even at night. I appreciate having the option of breakfast included. All of the staff members that I interacted with were warm, gracious and professional. I had a problem with the heat in my room, it was taken care of quickly. The hotel is not brand new, the room I was in looked a little tired. But it had everything I needed and I would highly recommend it. Try the High Tea, it was a wonderful way to start my London vacation!
