    My room was 120--a very convenient location in this hotel. The room was quite small, but I was traveling alone and being out of the room all day, I didn't require spacious quarters. My room faced Compton Road and despite double-windows, some noise would seep in, though never bothersome to me. (I say this to remind light sleepers to be aware of how busy London streets can be.) Some reviews have mentioned the maze-like nature of the hotel, and I see how that is probably true, but I did not experience that with my 1st level room. The hotel personnel were always gracious and hospitable. I was very pleased with service and attention. Breakfast is good and plentiful (mostly self-serve from buffet). I ate some evening meals at the hotel and was again pleased with the quality and attention. (I don't know if the dining room has a "team" approach to service, but during my meals I would have two or three servers, at times slightly confusing.) Gloucester Road Underground Station is just steps away--something that makes this hotel's location quite accessible to the city. (Lines are Circle, District, and Picadilly.) Bus routes are convenient too. The Victoria & Albert Museum is a short walk, as is the Natural History museum. Harrod's is walkable as well, though longer of course.

    I arrived very early in the morning and was pleasantly surprised to find my room ready so I could take a much-needed nap. The location is excellent. Although it is on a busy street, Underground station and numerous restaurants are close by; the neighborhood is safe and well lit, close to Hyde Park and museums. Room a tad small but clean and very comfortable. Definitely a good choice for exploring west London and beyond.
