          The hotel is in an excellent location. Right across from museums and a short walk to the South Kensington Tube station and Harrods. Hyde Park is only a 15 minute walk away at the most. The staff are friendly and professional. There is a pool and some spa amenities but I can't comment on those as we didn't use them. The room we got was small but functional. The breakfast is quite good with many options to chose from.

          The hotel is starting to show its age. I would describe the general condition of our room as shabby. When we arrived nothing worked in the room. A quick call to the reception desk had a maintenance person over to diagnose a blown fuse in the hallway. He fixed that and we were fine. But then we noticed the stains. On many spots on the wall of our bedroom there were visible hand prints. They looked as if someone had greasy hands and they touched the wall. These were everywhere. The largest concentration was near the desk. The weirdest "stains" was one on the wall just over the headboard. There were definitely not hand prints. We mentioned these to the front desk after our 1st night there. The "manager" who listened to our concerns said that she would let the "housekeeping manager" know. Well, nothing happened. The stains were still there when we left. I expected better. One last issue was that the breakfast room at times got busy (which is understandable) and the staff were not very attentive with providing coffee and tea.

          the room whihc was a larger double was very spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was good too.

          The attitude of the check in staff was not very helpful

        • Couple
          8.2

          We requested an early check in and our room was ready by 12pm. Breakfast was excellent quality. Quiet despite its cental location

        • Older travelers
          9.6

          Good quality, good value for money (at the discounted rate) and great location.

          Too hot in bedroom and air con coulkd not cope with this. No other way of controlling temperature.

        • Older travelers
          6.2

          The location is convenient for museums and access to shopping. The "full English" breakfast was enjoyable.

          The "executive"room we had originally booked was not available. Sometimes being upgraded at no extra charge to an " executive King" might suggest a better experience. The cold rooms on the 5 th floor, just under the roof, did not deliver this promise. This tired old building is portrayed in your photo gallery as a really fine newly renovated hotel. Far from it! The fifth floor with its creeking corridor floorboards, intrusive ventilation noise, non sound attenuating doors which slam loudly at night, offering arguably low security, do not come up to a four star standard in my opinion. Having eaten in the hotel's Palette restaurant I can understand that no one is very interested in making a comment on the food. The jackusi type bath failed to function during our stay although the reception had reported that it would be repaired imminently. Reading some comments from others before us, it appears that these baths are permanently out action and exist only as an an enticing insentive to take this type of room. (Perhaps still marginally within the scope of the "Trade descriptions Act".) Reception staff were unfreindly to the point of rudeness. Adverse comments about the room seemed quite unacceptable. After all we had an "uppgrade".

        • Older travelers

          We loved the spaciousness and comfort of the room, the bed in particular. The location is fabulous. It is a classy hotel.

          We were not that impressed with the breakfast. The tea was weak and lukewarm. The selection of breads was limited and uninspiring. eg. no rye bread There was no option for ordering freshly cooked eggs. eg. poached eggs or eggs, over-easy.

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          Location, excellent for museums. And Harrods, Fortnums, Piccadilly Arcades, RCA, Theatreland, Hyde Park, Buck House all within walking distance. Decent local restaurants. Staff friendly and helpful.

          Room not ready on arrival, had to "loiter" for around 40 mins. Breakfast room cramped. Cold plates with cooked breakfast resulted in food going cold quickly. Poor selection of fresh fruit and cereal. Spa Bath would not turn off and we had to call out maintenance who had to turn off all electrics whilst resolving the problem. In fairness room service most apologetic.

          Comfortable, easy hotel in an excellent location.

        • Older travelers
          5.4

          - The variety of the food at breakfast

          - Too expensive for the level it has from a guest's point of view - Staff's sympathy (or lack of it) - Lifts having to be acctionated by the key to the room wich can be quite temperamental at times (not to say boring)

        • Older travelers
          8.8

          The location was very convenient, although on a fairly busy road you did not hear the traffic at all. The staff was very helpful and pleasing. The lounge area was lovely at night for a quiet drink in front of a fire' Lovely!

          Ifelt the room was smaller than I had imagined, that was my only complaint.

        • Older travelers
          8.2

          V ery good value for money, city centre , 2 nearby underground stations cleam , pleasent attentive staff. Breakfast could have been more exciting and expansive for the type of hotel.

          Nothing

        • Couple
          9.2

          You mislead potential guests with the room pictures you show images of superior room when in fact the room is the executive room. This is very misleading by you.

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          The Rembrandt was chosen for the location, and the occasion was a birthday treat. It catered for everything required to make a great weekend great. The staff were exceptionally helpful, and all amenities and the breakfast were brill.

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          fantastic atmosphere. our room was upgraded upon arrival. very relaxed yet profaessional approach. standard of breakfast was excellent. location is second to none, city centre very accessible for tourists.

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          Location. Delicious breakfasts which were topped up regularly and so always fresh. Good range of foods. Most helpful concierge who got us tickets for War Horse when the "house was full". Nice atmosphere in the bar/drinking area.

          Had double exec. Room. Would have liked tissues in room and not just in bathroom. Helpful with makeup and sneezes when bathroom is in use. Can't put makeup on in bathroom as mirror holds condensation for too long. Bed was two singles together but only one massive duvet. Made it feel heavy, two single duvets would be better. Bottles of water in the room would have justified the "exec room" charge. Wasn't made aware by reception that you had to insert your room card in slot in lift before it would work? D'oh, felt foolish. Tv standby light was 2/3 inches in length, looked like a spaceship was landing. Whole room lit up and although bed was comfortable, sleep was disturbed. Had to stand a pillow up against it (think that was around 3am, though it could have been 1,2 or 4am). Fridge/mini bar could have been cleaner - put fresh milk in there (from your bar) for our tea. Tried not to make any of the above sound like a complaint at your request.
