Caroline S. Solo travelers Singapore, June 25, 2015

Location, clean, quality
Very good. Very convenient. Room has everything you need though a little small as I got a single room. But still very satisfied with my stay.
Li K. Couples Malaysia, May 30, 2015
location at it's best

It's location is central to all the attractions and places of interest in town. Many cafes outside the hotel. The train station is a minute walk away
Everything was great about this hotel. I personally think that their beds are a bit worn out and flabby. After 5days, my back was aching from the soft mattress.
Ruby N. Solo travelers United Kingdom, April 24, 2015
Great stay

Location, comfort, friendliness
Chris B. Couples United Kingdom, April 6, 2015
A very good all round package

Location, Good quality
We stayed here for just one night since we were going to a show at the Royal Albert Hall. The location on Gloucester Road is grate for this venue - or the museums. Gloucester Road itself has a comfortable feel - good restaurants nearby, the tube is close to the hotel (though we had our car). The quality is very good for central London. Our room was a little on the small side - but not bad for central London standards and, to be honest, we paid a very reasonable rate.... So overall the Rydges is certainly easy to recommend - especially if you can get a good rate....
Konstantina K. Couples United States of America, November 11, 2014
not worth the extra money, not a boutique hotel

location, very quiet hotel
I stayed in the executive suite (not worth the upgrade price). The location was excellent, staff was nice, good wifi. It was quiet and couldn't hear anything in the halls despite being close to the elevator. Washroom facilities good, beds good. Would recommend this hotel.
Vikan C. Couples Thailand, August 15, 2014
Poor service

Location, Kensington, Transport
Everything was fine except the staffs. We had to carry all our luggages up to our room and had to put it into the storage ourself if we want to leave the luggage with the hotel. The staffs attitude was like 'it's not my problem, do it yourself'.
Linda K. Solo travelers United States of America, July 20, 2014
All around great value!

The staff was professional, courteous & helpful. My room was small but clean & comfortable. I had tea in the lobby one afternoon & there was no charge. It was also in an excellent location.
When I return to London I will definitely stay here if they have room.
Joanna N. Business travelers Singapore, June 25, 2014
It was a pleasant stay

convenient, comfortable & pleasant
It was a pleasant stay - no major issue.
Bernard M. Solo travelers United Kingdom, June 17, 2014
I wish we were given a room with better view.

We like the location of it and the breakfast is a good start for the day.
Royston L. Couples Malaysia, June 5, 2014
