Stayed here for Hard Rock calling in Hyde Park. BIt of a hike to the concert area of Hyde Park but only a tenner in a taxi back!
Great location, just minutes from Kensington High Street and very easy access to the rest of London via the tube again only minutes away.
Bedrooms were a bit dated, however the beds were super comfy. This is one of the reasons we pay a bit more for a hotel room as we can't stand cheap hard beds, so we weren't let down on this aspect. It was quite pricey and the service was a bit aloof, but on the hole the stff were ok.
A quick mention to the Indian/Asian lady running the breakfast staff - she was fab, and the breakfast staff were lovely too - hyper attentive; clearing your plates and refilling your coffee in the blink of an eye with a smile! Breakfast itself was ok, but not really 4 star fair...
I agree that this hotel is a bit of an '80's monster from the outside. It doesn't have the feel of a 4 star hotel, certainly not the rooms anyway. Also the tea coffee making was a very sparce one cup each of tea and coffee - but I would return again. Parking was also a bargain too - basement parking at £10.00/24 hours when you stayed in the hotel and paid your parking ticket in reception.
