    Hotel staff extremely friendly and helpful, location excellent for shopping and sightseeing, only five minutes walk from South Kensington tube station. Loads of places to eat, drink and just enjoy the atmosphere

    Room was smallish for a superior double room and it was a little noisy, but not so much so that it spoiled the experience
