Great location

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 8, 2005

A swish location with in the district of Kensington. Both central London and Heathrow are easily accessible from South Kensington tube station.
The classic rooms are a little small and have a lack of a view, however in saying that you don’t spend that much time in your room.
I arrived into London Heathrow on a Friday at seven in the evening and took the 45 -50 minute tube rides to South Kensington station. After a short 3 minute walk in the rain I was welcomed by the Concierge and guided to the check in desk... it took just two short minutes to complete formalities and was unpacking in just five minutes. I decided not to hit central London that evening and enjoy a drink the hotels own Irish bar " Kavanagh’s",this turned out to be one of Kensington's liveliest establishments and I didn’t get to bed much before one in the morning.
I had pre-booked breakfast and the morning after the night before was the perfect way to start the day and set me up for the long day of sight seeing ahead.

Unique Quality: Excellant Location in the leafy suberb on Kensington the building is ornate and is full of character. The hotel boasts, 133 classic and 37 executive rooms, Restaurant, two bars and 24 hour room service.

Directions: Close to earls Court and Olympia.
