Nice Convenient Hotel”

I have stayed at the Seraphine twice and my latest visit ended yesterday. The reception staff are friendly and efficient. The rooms and beds are spotlessly clean and comfortable although the furniture is a bit worn now and needs updating. I always go out for breakfast so cannot comment on that. I will certainly use the hotel again it is so convenient and being small seems more personal than some large hotels.

Receptionist Aranit was excellent, cleanliness of the rooms and the continental breakfast

Enjoyable stay. Hotel is situated close to the tube making it easy to access wherever you want to visit in London. Thankfully we were out all day and didn't need to spend a lot of time in our room because although it was exceptionally clean, it was very small. The eating area for breakfast is also small for the number of rooms in the hotel. On our first morning we had to return to our room and wait for a call to tell us when there was availability. Thankfully we weren't in any hurry. The receptionist Aranit ( probably spelt wrong!) was very friendly and helpful, making us feel very welcome.

Great for an overnight stay in central London”

Location, Price, modern

Great hotel for location and price although there is only just room to walk around the bed! But considering the amount of time you actually spend in the room - most of it is in bed so it wasn't a big problem for us. Tea and coffee making facilities and a large flat screen TV and wifi. Its modern - possibly very new. The bathroom is also nice, although the sink is so small you do end up soaking the floor. Breakfast is all you need, cereals, fruit, yogurt, a couple of pastries, toast, juice and hot drinks. Reception/manager seemed efficient and friendly. Hotel was clean. No issues, would stay here again.

Comfortable place”

Cleanliness, location, lift

The room is very small to be rated as 4 stars, but it is clean, comfort and quiet. My room was at 3rd floor facing main street and the sound was well isolated from the street. Every work well in the room. Breakfast has limited choice but sufficient. Internet was fast but often log me out, and everyday need to request new ID/password access. The lift is plus point but a bit cumbersome with manual process. The location is near to High Street Kensington station but still tiring to walk with baggage. Location is convenient for food, Tesco Metro just opposite the road. I'm happy with the hotel except the room is really too small for the start rating.

Fab location. Neat but very very very small room. ”

Location. Room decor. Complimentary water.

Reasonable. Good location and well decorated. However, too noisy due to locality directly on a busy main road and although the rooms are bijou, the bathroom is ridiculous. The sink is so small that you need to fill cups to tip water into the kettle if you want a cup of tea or coffee as there is insufficient space to top up the kettle directly. The plastic cups are so poor in quality that they split on removed from their plastic bag. Better accommodation in Kensington for the same price or less. Cute hotel but won't be returning. Sorry!

Perfect Location ”

Location. Location. Location.

If you want a relatively inexpensive hotel on Kensington High Street and you are only staying for a short time then this hotel fits the bill. If you stay more than a couple if nights the tiny rooms will drive you bonkers. Climbing over the bed to open the window; a dressing table chair that can't pull due to the bed being in the way, etc etc. Not for the claustraphobic. The staff seemed overworked. I filled in a breakfast card for room service during my stay but on each morning it didn't arrive until I called to remind them. Doubt I would stay here again. One more annoyance: room maid not trained how to make beds with hospital corners a consequence of which is you will be making your own bed several times a night.
