Where do I start, hotel room smallest of the trip, with the bath room so small that I couldn't turn around without opening the door. Then there was the bed, I checked in and the bed was not made, so had to make it myself and when I went to bed I found the springs from the mattress were sticking into me. At that point I had to put more padding between the mattress and me, ok the food or breakfast disappointed would be the best way to put it.

Historical Traveler Reviews City Continental London Kensington
We stay at the Comfort Inn in July 2004 and had a great stay. The tube was just around the corner which made it really easy to get to. Our room was small but very nice. We were able to make tea in the room and the continental breakfast was wonderful. We got a very warm welcome. The staff were friendly and helpful. I would really recommend this hotel.
Needs a re-vamp
Stayed here with my husband and daughter. Room was very cramped. Shower squirted water all over bathroom except where you wanted it to go. Expected double bed for myself and husband but no way was it a double.
On the plus side the location is great and staff were good.
Could do with a make over!
Very good choice
I spent three night in this hotel, from 28 to 31 of may 2004 and it has been a great choice. Two minutes from the tube, a lot of pub, shops, great breakfast and the right price.
Only one problem, no air condition in our room, but London is not so sunny!
All the hotel staff is polite and very kind.
Just what the doctor ordered
I`d booked the hotel before I`d read any reviews and i have to say arrived there fearing the worst. The hotel was cheap and cheerful .The rooms clean and the staff brilliant.Now dont get me wrong its not the savoy but I was taking my 3 year old son there and he discribed it as beautiful and kids dont lie.If your looking for faults you`ll find them.If your looking for value for money you can`t go wrong.
After reading these previous reviews, my boyfriend and I decided to stay elsewhere. Which turned out to be an error on our behalf.
We decided to look into the Comfort Inn and give it a try, despite these reviews. Apparently, this hotel has been remodeled since these reviews. We found it to be clean, bright and a fair deal.
We were extremely satisfied with our room. Although it was a bit small (which, from what I am told, is not uncommon in these hotels), the room was clean, bed was comfortable, bathroom was a good size and bright.
Staff was very accomodating. We arrived well before check in and we were able to store our luggage in a locked room so we could venture out prior to check in and not worry about our belongings.
Breakfast was continental, but fresh and constantly stocked.
Overall, we intend to return to this hotel in the near future.
Awful, poorly decorated shabby room and mould in bathroom
The room was small and very cramped, it smelt very musty and the bathroom was awful mould and cracked tiles - would not recommend this to anyone.
Not serious with reservations
I booked a triple room (two adults, 1 child), 3 months in advance, (on the 6th September) for 3 days starting the 5th of December. The 2nd December (3 days before my departure) I was called to tell me that there was not such a triple room. Instead I was offered a room ¡in Gatwick or Heathrow town!. When I asked for a room in central London, I was offered to choose between ¡3 separated single rooms or one double room + another separate single one!. After not accepting any of this solutions, I had to agree with a triple room in a hotel in the north (travel zone 4) quite a long journey to were I wanted to stay (Earls Court, west zone 1), adding time, money and inconvenience to our short stay. No more comments.
Very small rooms
We stayed here in 1/01. Very small room, poorly decorated. Neighborhood was ok - spent little time in room or hotel. Felt safe on the way to the hotel at night. Breakfast was good. Had one evening meal there and it was not special.
We stayed at this dump for one night in May 2002. This place was in a shady neighborhood with hoodlums roaming the streets, the carpeting was so dirty I couldn't believe my eyes, the walls had stains on it, the shower doors were falling off. The blankets and sheets had holes in them. We were there only for one night as we were passing through from Paris back to the states so we didn't bother to change hotels. And it was the most expensive hotel of our entire European trip, to boot! The only slightly positive thing was that it was so close to the underground. But it happens to be the most annoying underground station to navigate that we encountered. All in all this place was the most memorable for the most horrific reasons. I felt like Comfort Inn should have been paying US to stay there. It was awful.

... had a store guide! Secretly I want to hide under something or in a changing room and spend the night in this place. I tell Rio that we have to see the food hall from what I've read. Yes, there are reviews about the food hall experience on trip advisor. They will be getting another from me soon :) The floor is similar to that of The Westminster Abbey. The display cases are filled with lovelies...and by ...

... Hill and meet Scott Dawson and partner Gosia for brunch at Happenstance. Lunch and conversation lasted for 3.5 hours.
With such a large lunch we opted for another picnic at Bill and Joyce's apartment for a light dinner - all purchased at Mark's and Spencer.
That was a delightful picnic of 4 cheeses, ham, salami, melon, olives, a Chablis and a Cabernet.
Here are some pictures of the day.
Tomorrow we are off to the London Eye.
All the best
... the great hall, boys dormitory, and diagon alley. They were all what they called 'hot sets' where you could start shooting a scene at any time. So basically they were exactly like how they would have been when the actual filming too place. There was many other amazing sets like the Griffyndor common room, the Wesley's house, the options classroom, ministry of magic, Dolores Umbridge's office, and many more! We also learnt all about how the ...
