    Friendly and courteous staff. Hotel has excellent location, bus and subway are very fast to reach. Very close to the National History Museum

    Based on the pictures and the price we would have expected more in terms of the room furnishings and equipment.

    I just got back from a 5 night stay at the Radisson Blu and have to say the stay was fantastic. I was visiting my daughter who studying in IK from the US. The location is just around the corner from the underground, the breakfast buffet delicious and walking distance to museums. The room was clean, comfortable beds, and provided an excellent stay. I would have given it a 10 in all areas except for the service in the dining area at breakfast was not always 100%. It had nothing to do with the actual staff but had to do with large travel groups eating at the same time. The dining staff tried to be accommodating by sitting some in the bar area. Which left them trying to service too many at the same time. Obviously they needed to get the groups in and out in a timely fashion so the groups could get on to their tour. I’m not sure how to alleviate this. I would highly recommend this hotel!!

    The location directly next to the subway station Gloucester Road is impressive. The hotel is very nicely renovated. Breakfast is neat.

    The reception was partially overwhelmed. Long waits. The rooms and bathrooms are chic, but - as almost always in London - for a hotel this requirement is very small (we had a "deluxe room").

    Location is excellent just around corner from Gloucester Road tube station. This gives very easy access to/from Heathrow. Staff were very helpful at check in and room was ready when I arrived at 10.00am on a Saturday morning.

    We were only there for one night but we were helped in and out with the pushchair and the staff were really nice.

    location: very convenient; catering: good service;

    no kettle, no drinking water in the room; when travelling late and at last get to the hotel, you don't want to go out again to buy water; a nice cup of tea in the room will be very convenient
