Uh, ok, but not impressive

Two significant issues. First, for more than £14, the breakfast was mediocre. Milky diluted scrambled eggs and barely cooked bacon (ok, that’s an English thing) were disappointing. Second, who designed the square toilets in the bathrooms? Completely unsupportive in an anatomical sense. The “design” looks chic, but is completely uncomfortable. Staff in the hotel were gracious and helpful.

Nice hotel

Pros: The location is great. Hotel is nice looking and the staff very helpful. Beds were the most comfortable on our whole trip.
Cons: Clean the showers! And despite what looked like double windows the street noise was way too loud.
Location: Close underground, walking distance to areas of interest, and plenty of eats and shops near by. Nice neighborhood to just go for a walk.
Very nice, welcoming staff, good location. Room was very small but beds comfortable. The only thing is the shower could have used a good cleaning with bleach. There's no excuse for having moldy grout in a hotel shower.

Nice old style European Hotel

Pros: The shower was the BEST !
Cons: Maybe a small ice bucket for the room. We had to go to the bar and collect ice which they gave you in a glass. An insulated bucket would have been bet
Location: The location was terrific ! The Gloucester Road Tube station was only 2 blocks away and there are plenty of restaurants in walking distance.
We had a quaint room on the top floor at the rear corner of the hotel. The room was quiet with little street noise. It even had a small porch off the back which I did not see in any other room. The bathroom was HUGE with the most wonderful shower we have had in any hotel stay. The staff was very helpful and pleasant. I would stay here again if I return to London.

Lovely hotel close to tube station

Pros: Closeness to the tube station and it's uniqueness. It is not a cookie cutter hotel. The bar and restaurant was excellent and the prices were reasona
Cons: The mattress could have been better and a little more storage space.
Location: Very close the The Victoria and Albert Museum, The Natural History Museum and Kensington Castle and gardens
Very nice hotel! Clean and very helpful staff. The hotel is older but very quaint . The room was small but the newly updated bathroom was excellent with a wonderful "rain" shower.

Perfect location and hotel !!

I came to South Kensington with my sister and mother. We had an amazing time. The hotel staff was nothing more than fabulous! So kind , friendly and helpful. When I come back to South Kensington I will only stay at Park International Hotel.

A Very Nice Property with a unique and indellible charm

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Quiet, personal service
Cons: No free Internet
On this trip my business affairs were not complete and it was a choice of extending my stay or going to another hotel. But because of the unselfish efforts of everyone and the genuine willingness to assist and resolve any the slightest thought of discomfort, I extended my stay at the Park International. The management team is fairly young, but they are consumate professionals, who love what they do and it shows everyday! I am very glad stayed at this hotel, and would return there again whenever my travel plans take me through London! The renovations currently being completed, will make this a qiaunt small resort for business professionals and families desiring a great time in the U.K !

Nice hotel in a convenient location

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
Really nice hotel with well-appointed large rooms. Nice breakfast and a very friendly and helpful staff. The staff worked hard to place guests in quiet locations even when there was construction nearby. We would definitely stay again.
