An excellent place to stay in london

This is an excellent hotel and it is always a pleasure to stay there. the hotel is run very efficiently and well with friendly staff. it is worth staying for the breakfast alone which is superb. even though the hotel located some distance from central london, the gloucester road tube station is very close as are the museums, albert hall etc.

Holiday inn, kensington forum

The hotel rooms are a bit too small for comfort. the door to the bathroom was a very heavy and difficult to open/close sliding door. our room was on the side in front of a railway and it was very noisy. the room also had visible dust and dirt around the corners and the beds were badly stained. the reception staff did not give us any information regarding the facilities. i thought the bar and breakfast room was the small area serving drinks and food, but there was a large english type bar and alternative much better stocked breakfast room on the first floor. we missed out on these options the first night. the location was convenient and the facilities qood, when you realised they were there. the hotel staff were friendly in the main.
