    Historical Traveler Reviews The Rembrandt London

    Great value & location; though discovered

    from

    I'm a stuffy and particular traveller -- but The Rembrandt largely delivered on its promise. First, the value is excellent. I booked the hotel through hotelassist and nailed a 109 rate for a quiet executive room (large room, mostly redone with modern new bath). Get the rooms toward the back or overlooking the central garden (of the homes next door -- South Kensington is one of the priciest locales in London, and so the neighboring homes are a delight). The location can't be beat -- see the other reviews. The V&A is totally under-rated and right across the street. Note it's open 'til 10 pm on Weds. -- great way to beat the crowds. Be sure to walk around the area -- the restaurants are great in any direction; Harrod's is 10 minute walk up the street (eat there -- you won't be disappointed); jogging through Hyde Park/Kensington Gardens is like Central Park -- enjoy tea at the Orangery and walk around the adjoining garden. Tube stops within a few blocks -- easy to get turned around in the S. Kensington station with all the tunnels, but you won't mind walking around to orient yourself.Downsides? (1) It's been discovered -- attracts fair amount of rif-raf scoping a deal who spoil the otherwise dignified feel; (2) not QUITE at the 4-star level -- sheets had small holes, blankets were a bit dated and wallpaper was beat up and peeling -- but the other improvements in the room (esp. the bathroom) made up for it; (3) breakfast crowds sometimes force waiting; (4) breakfast buffet very good, but avoid that greasy toast stuff and make your own. Still, can't beat the value, room size and location, so it gets a strong thumb's up! Enjoy one of the greatest cities in the world!

    When I first went in the rembrandt I thouught I looked a bit posh and not me. the staff are wonderfull and helped me take my bags up to my room .The rooms are really nice and very spacious. I Would recomend this hotel to all my friends and will certainley come back to stay next year.

    Caution - Musty and shabby.

    from

    Caution - Our room was musty, shabby, and hot - certainly not "four star" quality. Service was fine, but not exceptional. Perhaps you need the "upgrade" in order to get the quality that everyone else is talking about in their reviews. The location was very convenient. (7/2003)

    We loved the Rembrandt!!

    from

    The location of the Rembrandt is excellent. It is across the street from the Victoria and Albert Museum and a few blocks from Harrods. I was not the least uncomfortable walking in this area after dark.The rooms were not exceptional but they were very well kept. The public rooms were beautiful.The hotel staff were all very nice and helpful.We will stay there again.

    Wonderful Hotle and Wonderful Location

    from

    We stayed for 7 nights at the "oh so convenient" Rembrandt Hotel in South Kensington. The staff was fantastic (especially the Concierge Pablo, who helped us with theatre tickets, taxis and our flight reservations). Our room was a twin with plenty of space to stretch out, a seating area, a large bathroom, with all being very clean and recently updated. The area has lots of shopping, museums and restaurants galore. There are 2 tube stations within walking distance and the bus dropped us a half block away from the doorstep. I have been to London a few times and have finally found a hotel to return to time and time again.

    Choose The Rembrandt

    from

    Found the Rembrandt on a discount site that featured it as the best value they had, checked out all the web reviews, and their own site with many pictures. Seemed too good to be true. Rate with full English breakfast buffet was fabulous for a deluxe full service British hotel. (April '03 during the war keeps the rates very competitive)From the moment we entered the beautiful lobby, Elena at the reception desk had a delightful smile that made us feel totally at home. (Every employee we encountered was delightful) She carefully helped us select the best place to stay in the hotel, describing the advantages of each location for our 7 day stay and allowed us to the room at 9:30AM to accomodate our early flight arrival. The bonus was a free upgrade to an Executive level room. (Superb berth for a 7 day stay) What more could you ask for!Rembrandt location is fabulous in Knightsbridge! Walkable in between two tube stops, bus stop out front, and great stores in one direction with scores of nice restaurants in the other. Across the street is the wonderful and free V&A museum with two more museums within a few blocks. The temptation is to never leave this area!I can't wait to go back.

    The Rembrandt

    This Hotel was really nice. I mean you could see Harrods from the door step. But it was not rated by american standerds, we would have rated it about a 3 star but not really a 4 star. They have a really nice restuarant and bar in it. But if ya like shopping and being about 15 buildings from Harrods this would be a great hotel for you, LoL !

    My favorite hotel

    from

    As a frequent traveler to London, I have stayed at the Rembrandt several times, and each time has been superb. The service is outstanding, and the location (within easy walking distance of two tube stations, Harrod's, Kensington Palace, across the street from the Victoria and Albert Museum, and right smack in the middle of oh-so-trendy Knightsbridge) can't be beat. Cozy up to the fire one chilly London afternoon with your gratis newspaper, complimentary tea, or something stronger poured by the friendly bar-keep (this last isn't free, but reasonably priced,) and you'll want to extend your stay a day or two. The guests at the Rembrandt tend to be as well-mannered as the staff. This is my favorite hotel in London.

    The Rembrandt Rotten Rotten

    from

    The rembrandt was the worst hotel i've ever stayed at in my life. The travvel agent recommended it. When we arrived the price was different, no air-conditioning, toilet that ran all night. the court yard was booked for weddings long into the night(loud). A burgler alarm went off next door for 4 hours 2-6 a.m. When I called down to complain the staff told me so what!! The people are rude and hated americans. If you like being overcharged and a block from Harrods, this is the place for you.

    Stayed at this hotel with two girl friends June 2002. Excellent location 1 min from South Kensington Tube station, a few minutes walk to Knightsbridge and Hyde Park. Nicely decorated on the whole friendly staff. One small complaint, we booked a triple room for three adults in three beds, they put a rollaway bed in a standard twin room and the room just wasnt big enough for three. so we were a bit crowded but if you opted for a room for 2 you should be fine. I would recommend this hotel for your next visit to London

    A chicken curry hit the spot. These idiots that get up during the dinner service should be sent to cargo, the one stewardess making it clear two dorks would only get to their seats once she was done serving food. Bit iffy service re the landing card. Asked one steward and he forgot and one stewardess never did get back to me; wench.

A bit cloudy and drizzle, had cooked breakfast, received a text from Cousin Carol informing us that Joyce (their son Paul’s wife in the USA) has had a couple of “mini strokes” we hope she recovers soon. We drove first to Morrison’s in Morley to buy flowers, then on to East Ardsley church where Lorraine put flowers on both graves. It looked to us that neither grave has been cared for and certainly no flowers for quite some time.We then did a bit of ...

    ... Tower Bridge to see it open - felt like a fairy tale to to see it like that. Across the bridge and we began the loop back at an optimistically jaunty pace.

    2. In the tunnels beneath the bridges are wonderful etchings on the tiles of all of the iterations of the bridge above. An unexpected surprise in what was probably a dingy passageway.

    Lowlights?
