            • Single
              5.0

              Polite but very disorganised Staff - long time to check out due to fire alarm and night porter tried to put me into an occupied room on arrival, once sorted proceeded to wake another occupier up when trying to access the wrong room. Room was very dusty

            • Single
              10.0

              Everything about the hotel was good except for one thing. The single room I was given was the smallest room I have ever stayed in. It was a bridge to far in room size. I therefore could not recommend this hotel.

            • Couple
              7.4

              Staff very helpful and polite

              The double room we stayed in was alot more cramped than I expected. It should not be described as an executive double room.

            • Single
              7.8

              Recently refurbished hotel very tastefully decorated in contemporary style. It's compact and clean with modern fixtures and fittings. Free internet is a bonus and the inclusive continental breakfast was fine. Location is great and not noisy.

              The Executive Double room that I had was quite small (about 2' of floor perimeter around the bed) though not so much as to make it unpleasant.

            • Couple
              7.4

              The hotel is fully renovated and thus very clean. Staff is friendly and extremely helpful. It is conveniently located (restaurants, bars, shops nearby) and a 5 minute walk from High St. Kensington station.

              Even the superior double rooms are relatively small. No elevator to the first floor. Average breakfast. Bathroom amenities include hand and body/hair soap only. A cosmetic disappeared from the room.

            • Single
              9.2

              very friendly staff. very clean and free wifi!

              rooms are on the small side and bathrooms quit compact but all in excellent condition.

            • Single
              7.8

              Excellent service, very friendly and helpful front-desk staff, brand new, clean.

              Single rooms are realy small...

            • Couple
              4.6

              clean room and good location

              an absolute rip off: cupboard size room, noisy, no services, got changed of location last minute - appalling - would not go back there an dmake sure that my friends won't go either

            • Single
              4.2

              the room was so small that my bed was short so my feet stuck out over the end. The bed only barely fit into the room so that it was wedged against the chair at the room desk which could not be used - absurd. the breakfast was v. disappointing and the second morning I just went to Starbucks next door.

            • Single
              8.8

              The hotel is nicely designed. The elevator was broken, but the desk personnel helped me with my very heavy bags... thanks. The location was great right next to the park where I was able to go for a run in the morning. The tube is not far from the hotel but I loved the walk to through the park instead to get to the center of all the tourists attractions.

            • Group of friends
              7.8

              Very clean room...spotless in fact. Nice bathrooms with walk in showers. Rooms well equipped and nicely decorated.

              A couple of my colleagues said their rooms were quite small, and that their feet hung over the end of the bed.

            • Single
              5.4

              bed was comfortable the windows actually opened which is always a bonus

              It was not clear from the info on Booked.net that there were lots and lots of steps without a lift from the street and no way to contact reception to ask for help from the street level. also there is a very poor choice of drinks in the room and very very poor availability of shampoo no conditioner no body lotion etc all of which I expect to have in a hotel at this cost in central london.

            • Couple
              9.2

              Super nice people, very good design and komfort. brand new hotel!!!! the room is a little bit small but everything else was very nice!!!! Good Hotel!!!!!

            • Group of friends
              8.2

              The location was excellent and central to all the places we wanted to see. The staff were very helpful, and were always willing to answer any questions we had. Our single rooms were small, but we had everything we needed in them.

              It was a little noisy at nights, with the traffic

            • Single
              5.0

              The location of the Seraphine is ideal. Just off Kensington High Street. The room is clean and newly fitted

              On arrival you are faced with a narrow long flight of steep stairs which you must take your own luggage to the small reception/breakfast room. The room is tiny. There is so many little gadgets on the only flat service in the room there is no where to put anything. A huge flat screen tv dominates the wall and there is not enough room to move away from the screen to enable you to focus without distortion on the screen. How this establishment is awarded 4 Stars amazes me .
