                The quad room was comfortable and clean with plenty space to move around. Even although it was in the basement it had two windows which looked into a mews lane at the rear of the hotel.The Staff couldn't have been nicer. The breakfast was good with full English breakfast with lots of toast and home made jam which was delicious. Also Johnny came round with plates of croissants and fruit bread and lots of fruit which was available at all times day and night. The kitchen was open for anyone to use at their leisure. Anyone not liking this hotel must be very fussy or just very hard to please.

              • Group of friends
                9.4

                Very convenient to Tube. Nice building and good Lift. Staff helpful, smiling and gave a welcoming, family ambience.

                The bathroom was servicable but old, hot water not very hot.

              • Family with children
                6.6

                The best thing about St. Simeon was the staff -- we had excellent attention and kindliness from everyone from the front desk to the hotel driver to the maids and kitchen personnel. We experienced a tragedy back home in the states while on our stay, and the desk staff at the hotel helped us greatly with communication, both in timeliness and in cost effectiveness. Best wishes to all staff members at St. Simeon, and a special bow to the front desk clerks.

                The room was quite small, even by London standards, and someone had positioned the wardrobe so that it partially blocked the one window that could be opened for ventilation. I'd suggest rigging both windows to open, and/or installing a fan -- either a ceiling fan, or even a small oscillating fan. Obviously, guests don't want to invest in a fan for a one to three night stay.

                Excellent breakfast, great that they let you in the kitchen to make coffee or take fruit. Friendly reception

                Old bathroom, leaking tap.

              • Older travelers
                4.6

                The staff is very helpful and the location is very conveninet in the Kensington area close to 2 tube stops and lots of restaurants.

                Barebones and poor value for the price. Matchboz sized room with a tiny tv. No Air Conditioning - beware for summer stays. Tiny bathroom without even basic amenities like soap. Tine double bed against the wall. No room for 2 suitcases in the room. Breakfast is ok. Staff is very helpful and friendly. Price too high for what you get. Would not stay here again. Pay a little more and stay in a real hotel.

              • Family with children
                8.8

                Friendly, approachable staff, good location for the Science, Natural History and Victoria and Albert museums and Kensington shopping and less than a five minute walk to the nearest tube so very convenient for Regent St/Oxford St shopping too. Room was very clean, hotel was quiet overnight and breakfast is very generous.

              • Family with children
                9.6

                I had read the rather mixed reviews of this little hotel, and I have to confess that it was with some trepidation that I booked it. I found it charming, It was perfectly clean, the staff were a delight, and nothing was too much trouble for them. It is not a characterless bland,multinatonal hotel, but an individually owned and run small family hotel. I would certainly go again and would have no hesitation in recommending it as it is so refreshing to go somewhere so central which is not run by some massive chain. The only downside was that there were no tea or coffee making facilities in the rooms, but you could use the kitchen. We had very small children so could not travel up and down in the lift so easily., with hot drinks, having said that I did not ask. The Serbian ( I think) owner is very keen for his customers to eat fruit! All in all a very good find in central London. Brilliant position for Museums, Kensington Garden,s Albert Hall etc, all 5 min walk, and restaurants and cafes just down the road.

              • Older travelers
                5.4

                The rating 6.7 is too high and did not represent my experience. I would have preferred not to have paid for breakfast as it was poor. Fruit was rotting and food hygiene was poor. I ate out after the first dining experience. The room was very cramped for 2 persons and furniture shabby.

              • Group of friends
                7.4

                The host were nice. The hotel it's near by the underground and it's in central london. The room was nice and clean.

                Staff were excellent, great location and comfotable, clean room for the night.

              • Single
                5.4

                Location, staff were friendly and accompanied me to the room which was clean.

                The rooms are very tired, with bed linen that while clean is old. No soap/shampoo or coffee/tea in rooms . This is a very basic budget hotel. If you want cheap and clean this is for you if you like any of life's neccessities avoid.

              • Family with children
                5.0

                The day manager was friendly and professional. The breakfast was good and the waiting staff at breakfast were friendly and accomodating.

                The evening staff were not able to help with any problems and spoke quite poor English so was difficult to get any help until the day manager came on. The rooms were tiny. Some things like lights and sockets didn't work and it was difficult to get them resolved.

              • Group of friends
                7.8

                We were allowed to check in early and could stay in the same room even though we had booked one night for a twin and the second night for a triple. We were in a family room - one double and 2 singles. Also the fact that you could eat as much fruit and cakes for breakfast means you would never starve in this hotel.

                Personally about the breakfasts the bacon was more like gammon - too thick - ideally this needs to be thin and was quite off putting for my friends who I stayed with. They couldn't actually eat it. Also couldn't open the windows in our room either. We had room number 1 downstairs.

              • Group of friends
                8.8

                The staff were very friendly and helpful, couldn't do enough for me. The location was excellent and the price for the location was excellent. It is a budget hotel, hence the price and as long as you expect that you won't be dissapointed. I think that some reviews of this hotel have been unfair and unrealistic in relation to the price/location of the hotel. It is a little rickety but I would still be happy to recommend this hotel to others.
