Would highly recommend this hotel! It is very close to the Tube and is directly across the street from beautiful Kensington Park. It did seem odd when we first arrived that there was a gas station beneath the hotel, but it was great to have a convenience store so close by for snacks. We were a group of five women and felt very safe walking in this area and in the park. The rooms are very nice (the most comfortable beds on our 3 city vacation in Europe!) and the included breakfast was very good. You could even get eggs cooked to order. The staff was very friendly and very helpful. We didn't have any problems with our wake up calls. I hope to return to London and would stay stay at this hotel again. If you are planning to take a hop on, hop off bus tour of London, I would highly recommend Big Bus Tours. They have a stop right in front of this hotel.
