    The staff are attentive, the location is great and the decor is interesting

    Some of thwe furniture is looking tired and the dark lighting is irritating

  • Older travelers

    not very much at all

    Disgusting vastly overpriced food. Cluttered unwelcoming reception. Gloomy decor poor lighting, hard bed.

  • Older travelers
    4.6

    The staff tried to be considerate

    The superior king size room was 8x8. Much too small for two people. Most of the rooms are in need of repair and they are doing this, but except for the suites the rooms are ridiculously small and expensive for what you got. .

  • Older travelers

  • Single
    3.8

    Liked the concept as read on their website. Liked the out of the way location yet in S. Ken.

    Staff was cold and did not have a personality. Was not friendly. Welcome drink never arrived. Bathroom was marble and cold. Rain shower head was so high up on the top of the ceiling and the bathroom was so cold by the time the water hit my head it was cold. I chose a small room (only me) but far too small, no room for my suitcase, but fully booked so I could not mover rooms. Thin walls, could here people in and out of elevator. Could hear room service knocking on neighbor doors. Sheets were scratchy and there was a thin covering, not even a duvet. Hair dryer did not plug in bathroom, only room and no mirror to dry my hair. No full length mirror except in elevator! Asked to see other rooms for future, told could not choose, staff never asked how was my stay.

  • Older travelers
    5.8

    The bed was very comfortable.

    There was nowhere to sit with a mirror to do make up. There was no plug sockets close enough to dry hair and see in a mirror, we had to ask housekeeping to find an extension lead. The lighting was far too dim. Appreciate that this gave a romantic ambiance but hopeless for getting ready to go out in the evening.
