                  • Family with children
                    5.0

                    The location is acceptable and convenient; the food provided (breakfast) from acceptable to good quality. Hotel room interior design is more than acceptable;

                    The staff organisation is poor especially in the restaurant - staff agrument before clients; not many hotel rooms but very mean to complimentary wifi - everywhere in the hotel, the wifi is chargeable. Not sufficient supplies to toilet accessories; slippers are not provided though it is stated provided in Booked.net.

                  • Family with children
                    8.8

                    The Hotel is at good location near to the station/bus stand.

                  • Group of friends
                    10.0

                    The hotel itself is a beautiful building in a great location - bedroom had lovely high ceilings and despite being situated on quite a busy road, and our room at the front of the building, we did not notice any road noise. Good continental breakfast - nothing spectacular - just the normal selection but it was lovely! Staff at reception were polite and professional - although perhaps a little 'cold' in their manner.

                  • Group of friends
                    7.0

                    The lift cannot actually reach every floor, which means you will have to carry the suitcase and walk on the stairs. Besides, everything was really good.

                  • Couple
                    9.2

                    Very friendly, polite and helpful staff. Rooms and bathrooms are impecable and the Jam Cupboard restaurant is very stylish and the food was lovely! Also location is extremely good, a 2 minute walk from Glouscester Road tubestation and 10 minute walk from the Natural History museum and the Science museum. Over all a wonderful hotel and I will definitely be coming to stay again.

                    I have no bad comments to make about this hotel.

                    Hotel is pretty mordern and very clean, which does not happen that often in the UK for that price but the room was extremely small. Breakfast is good and complete.

                    Well located and comfortable room.

                    Loud noises coming from floor above early in the morning.

                    The room was very clean, our family accommodation(executive studio suite) comprised two rooms and had the comfiest sofa bed I've ever slept in. The staff were very friendly and very forgiving(we accidentally got dye (from recently dyed hair)on a towel and were reassured this was not a problem).

                    The convience of the rooms and the hotel in general. Everything about the hotel was great, I loved the colors of the room we stayed in as they were relaxing. Also the bathroom was very clean. The reception staff and the cleaning staff were really curteous and pleasant.

                    I would like to suggest that the elevators be more faster - they are extremely slow - and try to add an additional elevator. Service elevator should be different than the guest of the hotel elevator.

                    It was a bonus we got to be able to check in early as our 13 hour flight arrived in London at dawn. We did not expect that so felt very pampered. The toiletries were lovely products. Although we did not see any doorman on arrival, the one on duty during our check-out was most helpful with our luggage. We were not affected by the renovation at all. Keep up the good job!

                    The location is fantastic for London and very close to a main tub station. Rooms have been recently renovated and have a real Australian style to them, as well as level expected from rydges hotels. The price is also great for London. Amenities great and noise low. Staff are very helpful. Would easily stay again or recommend.

                    The room was modern and clean with anything one could need, from an iron and ironing board to a hair dryer. Attention to detail is commendable. The coffee in the room for example was not the standard nescafe sachet but a much more upscale freshly brewed alternative. The toiletries,too, were lovely and replenished daily. The room and bathroom were very clean. The location is perfect with nearby restaurants, coffeeshops and supermarket. Gloucester Road tube station is one minute's walk and is on the Picadilly Line, which gives direct links to Leicester Square, Covent Garden and even Heathrow. I have stayed at other hotels in London at the same rate per night, but no other hotel comes anywhere near this one!
