This was my second time staying at the Bagiloni which was very nice. Having a suite room made a huge difference if you're spending much time there or have more than average luggage. The staff was very accommodating, from check-in to concierge throughout my entire time. The rooms are well appointed and nicely kept up but I don't have any idea how old they are. The food is very good tasting, with some specific dishes better than others (that's based both mine and other guests) and their service was great most of the time. Lunch appeared to take longer than breakfast or dinner but I've had lunch only one time.
I felt the location was great being directly across from the Kensington Palace and walking distance to assorted shops & restaurants (even a Whole Foods). However, far enough away from the really busy parts of town which is what I like.
Room pricing is relatively fair to much less, as compared to many other hotels in its class. This may be because of the location and somewhat scaled-down public area. We used AE Platinum services which included an upgrade, breakfast each morning and an 85lb credit towards whatever services.
Some of the negatives are taxis can be a bit difficult to flag down at times, the bathroom lighting is very bright (that's good) but cannot be dimmed which makes it the room temp hot. Also, they add in a daily tip for the staff which I don't recall the amount but it felt a little too high. They gladly changed it to whatever amount I decided to give.
Based on my two stays, I would always consider this hotel in my travels to London and probably wherever they are located.
