Good location. Professional but friendly staff. Ambience just as one comes to expct from Holiday Inn. Reasonable sized rooms, compared to some of the rabbit hutches in the Stucco Fronted, bu very disappointing hotels in the Kensington neighbourhood

Location perfect - Piccadilly line. Desk very courteous and helpful. Very efficient - and very popular with flight crews.

Very small 2 single bed room - but that may have only because of very limited availability, and i booked last minute.

The price quoted was not the paid price. In the small print they add on VAT and so it increased the hotel stay by £120. Be aware of the small print. I have stayed here before and this was not the case, this is possibly a new rule. Check the small print.

The location is one block away from the Gloucester tube station and a 15 minute walk from the Royal Albert Hall. The location can't be beat.

Dining in the hotel restaurant took nearly forty minutes from placing the order to getting the food. Then when I checked out, someone else's bottle of wine was on my bill. Also, the elevators are incredibly slow- on Tuesday morning, some people waited almost 30 minutes for elevators from high floors. Lastly, the charge for Internet usage at this hotel is nearly highway robbery.

The internet connection is way too expensive, should have been included in the tariff. considering connection to SAP network as lifeline. this was really a problem. free internet should have been negotiated price.
