One week stay at Rockwell with my teen age son

Very good Room size and view to Cromwell road high street, very clean room/ reception/corridors,access to Earls Court transportation & shops
Booked one week stay at Rockwell hotel and enjoyed very much. We were so pleased with the room size, view to high street, very polite staff, very good room service twice a day, clean bathroom/shower/towel service, no noise, easy access to metro & bus services and shops/restaurants within walking distance. Very easy to catch bus & metro to Kensington high street, Knightsbridge, Museums and 20 minutes walk to Royal Albert Hall and Hydepark; Did not need taxi pick-up to airport, just used Picadilly tube service to airport, fantastic Wifi service inside the room & at reception area, nice & clean mini-bar service, tea-coffee-biscuit-water service. Felt at home and enjoyed the stay very much.

Charming boutique hotel

Responsive service personnel. Compact yet classy rooms. Easy walk to Earl's Court Station.
Lovely reception staff helped print out tour tickets for me and gave me print out of directions when I asked how to get to a theatre. The AC didn't work in my room but I mentioned it to them and they fixed it immediately. It was an easy walk to Earl's Court Station and I was able to go around quite easily from this location.

Overall stay turns out fine

Toiletries, location, cleanliness
Booked this hotel for a 3 nights stay with a friend. Room size is not big but still fine for 2. Toiletries provided are fairly good. Shower area is alittle tiny. Within a short walk distance to the underground station. Overall experience is fine. Would have been better if the staff at the reception is more friendly and flexible with the luggage storage. Depending on which staff is servicing at the reception, you get varying response and service level, some of which is not too pleasant.

Over-expected for a 4-star hotel

I thought I was staying at a B&B rather than at a 4-star. Definitely it's overrated and other than location I can't think of any good things about this hotel.
Not a good experience, staff at reception desk is not really helpful, single room is pretty tiny and feel like staying at a B&B. Room cleanliness is way below my expectation with a stingy smell and I don't even have the courage to use their towels (I usually will use the supply from hotel and this time I need to go and purchase towels for my use during the two days stay at this 4-star hotel). As well as not even have a kettle inside the room and complimentary bottle of water, at a 4-star hotel?! Pretty unacceptable. If they claim themselves under 3-star then I won't set any expectation at all. I will definitely not recommend my friends to pick this hotel. Not value for money at all. There are many other choices with the budget that I spent, even can afford for a branded hotel group.

Fine hotel

Location, staff, cleanliness
This is a fine hotel located just near the tube station (only 3-5 mins walk). Clean, cosy rooms, but if you a light sleeper choose rooms not facing Cromwell road as it is very busy round the clock. Hotel has a nice garden in the backyard, I smoked sigars there. Staff is attentive to your needs and tries to help whenever it is possible.

Not up to expectations

Cleanliness, free wifi, location
So-so. The online reviews did not accurately reflect the conditions and service of the hotel.

at the end, it was ok

clean and luxury utilities
it started off terrible, my single room was small but ok. Bt the airconditioning did not work and it was not possible to open a window The internet was unstable. So i have requested for another room, they showed me one, but had the same problem. Finally they offered me a bigger luxury room with garden view with working airco and even the window could be opened for fresh air So finally it turned out to be ok,
