Wanted to be close to the museum & Harrods was a short walk, so perfect location for us.
Front desk efficient, room a bit small but nice linens & robes. Breakfast buffet good, wifi in bar.

Stayed: November 2011, travelled as a couple

Great hotel, excellent food in restaurant, clean and comfortable room, a little pricy, but the area is excellent. Underground subway two minutes away, restaurants all around, amazing spread for breakfast included with room, and friendly staff.

Stayed: April 2012

I booked a twin room the 12th of February for 4 nights (from April 12 to April 16). When we arrived at 10 o clock at night the ouside temperature was 1 degree.They gave us room no.157 (never accept to stay in this room). THERE WAS NO HEATING!!!!! I asked to give us another room. They did it immediately but the room was not a twin but a double one on 6th floor.Nice room-nice view, but the toilet did not meet all the necessary things (tape) to prove that it was not used before.From the magazine WHERE there were ten pages missing. I had to write a notice to bring another one the next day. Breakfast and location were very good. But believe it or not The Rembrandt is N O T a four star hotel.-

Room Tip: when you make the reservation ask if there is heating-air condition in the room.

My mother, daughter, and myself stayed March 28th thru April 2nd. We thoroughly enjoyed this hotel. The hotel was very clean, bathroom spacious, very helpful staff. The breakfast bar was very good and everyone seemed to enjoy it. Very close to tube station, short straight walk to the left of hotel. Restuarants and shopping to the left and right of hotel. Public bus stop right outside as well as a hop on/hop off tour stop right beside it. On Sunday they had an antique fair inside, fun to walk thru even if not interested in shopping. Conceirge arranged two cars for us during stay, very afforable considering what taxis cost.Taxis were easy to catch right outside. Musuems just steps away from front door. Would love to stay there again!!

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 550, very comfortable and clean.

The Rembrandt is in a very good location,if you arrive from Heathrow airport,use the underground,Picadilly line ,exit at South Kensington station, a 3 min walk to the hotel, approximately 30 mins travel time from airport,saves you money,less than 5 pounds one way.Rooms are average size,as well as bathrooms are spacious.Though the water pressure to flush the toilet are not that strong. Beds are comfortable,Use of internet are $6/hr in the lobby Reception are friendly and helpful.There are many hallways going to your room,looks like a maze but does not bother me.Breakfast was delicious, lots of varieties,their bread is the best,juices,cereals,beans,eggs,mushroom,fruits,meats etc. Hotel is a 5 minutes walk rom Harrods,with lots of cafes,restaurants around.Museums are in front of the hotel, admission is free.Easy to get taxi ask the staff,5 min taxi drive to Victoria station where most of the bus London tours leaves.Overall not a 5 star hotel,but gives you the best value for your money.Clean and decent hotel ,A+ for location and breakfast.Will come back again.
Tips.
1.First time traveller in Europe,travel light,bring only few clothes,wash your clothes in the hotel if you are staying longer,believe me ,you will buy lots of souvineers home,remember one checkin only,1 hand carry ,extra luggage 60 Euros if you are exiting in Paris/or Germany.
2.Try Indian Cuisine the best in London,Bombay Brassiere, Glouchester underground exit,one stop after South Kensington.Picaddily line.
3.Try afternoon high tea,make reservation,Chesterfield Mayfair is the best service for us.Yum.
4.Private tours in London,London BlackTaxi Tours by Michael Churchill the best.E mail him.He is in trip advisor.
5.Enjoyed shopping in Oxford St,Marble Arch area,nice super cheap but good quality department store,Primark. Harrods is pricey.though go right away in their food court ,smells incredible.
6.use a 4 wheel luggage easy to use, bring a long and short jacket,weather is unpredictable,layer your clothing,bring umbrella and wear comfortable clothes.
7.Buy $5 oyster card then add money for fare, you can recharge it,there are assistance in the station if you dont know how to use it initially.Easy to navigate the underground,no need for taxi also safe even at night for us.
8.Try to watch shows ,Phantom of the Opera,Mama Mia etc,get the cheapest ticket ,the theater is small,use underground after the show,lots of people around.
9.use Evans tours ,not a third party,best tour guides.
10j.For me London has the friendliest people and best food.Enjoy!!!
