Never to choose

We stayed five nights in the hotel but was assgined to a room where the air-conditioner had been broken down. We left the luggage at hotel, rushed to return the car and returned to hotel for check-in after dinner. We were not informed of the problem upon check-in but only found it out after moving in. Were were told that the hotel was full change of room could not be arranged. We dared not open the window because the window was just along the fire escape and someone could easily get in from a opened window. The receptionist settled us by agreeing to make change-room arrangement the following day, saying that some guests were going to check-out and she left a note for her colleague to make change and up-grade if possible. Both my wiife and I couild not sleep the whole ngiht because of no air-conditioning and unable to open the window. We reconfirmed with the on-duty receptionist, packed the luggage and left them in room in the next morning, and came back in the afternoon hoping that we would be put in a room that we could sleep. But we were totally disappointed by a smaller room which again next to the fire escape. We were ttold by the hotel staff that the break-down of air-conditioning was not their problem, but only lack of s spare part for repair. How coma such saying without responsibility and hospitality. This made us very angry and wasted me almost an hour to debate with them until we could get a room with air-conditioning and not next to the fire escape. We were told that it was an up-gtrade. but we found no bigger than the original room without air-conditoining. Because of such poor experience, I would strongly recommend no longer to sell this hotel to the members, and all travellers never to choose hotel.

The hotel is just a 5 minutes walk from Gloucester tube station and there's many restaurants nearby. Value for money as the room is spacious & clean.

Great Location

I stayed here for 3 nights at the end of Oct. It's in a great location and very close to the Gloucester rd tube station (less than a min walk away) particularly if you are getting the tube from Heathrow it's only half an hour. However be aware if you have lot's of luggage there are no lifts in this station. There are very nice cafes & restaurants in the area and all were reasonably priced too. There are also supermarkets very close if you are thinking of catering for yourself. There are renovations going on at the minute but to be honest it didn't bother me. The staff in the hotel were very friendly & helpful. They gave me a choice of rooms which they let me view and then decide which one I wanted as I was checking in early. One of the rooms I viewed was adjoining another so I was concerned re noise levels of our neighbours and vice versa so I chose one on the 4th floor which hadn't an adjoining room. Painting was going on in the hallways but the smell of paint didn't enter the room. I stayed in a one bed apt. It was very clean and comfortable, bed was much smaller than the first room I had viewed though but again was not an issue. The toaster didn't work but the staff allowed me use theirs in their kitchen area and also offered me me one of their coffees and work men were passing our window as they carried out their works during the day. This didn't bother me but did bother my companion. Everything seemed to be bright and new in the apt which was nice. Check out time was at 11 which I thought was early and would have preferred a 12 check out time. The lift is very small only really fits 2 people. Overall I think it is a very nice place to stay and the location is definitely a bonus. I would probably stay here again.

Great location

The one bedroom apartment we had was very spacious and clean. Being on the 5th floor we had views of the rooftops of the Albert Hall, the V & A and the Natural History Museum, so no need for a map then. Some decoration and light building work was being carried out in the small reception area, but this did not impigne on our apartment. Not a problem for us , but be aware that there is only one lift, which only takes three people so there may be a wait.Saying that the stairs worked very well! Staff and contractors very friendly. Plenty of places to eat, including downstairs which was very good. A hop, skip and a jump and you were at the tube. Enjoyable stay. p.s. for real ale buffs try "The Stanhope Arms" opp. tube.

place was ok ish.. good location for the tube

was dissapointed on arrival, reception area being renovated. Internet didnt work very well. Our room was below ground, heating stuck on, bathroom smelt, as no fresh air. TV , stuck on wall, and could not see. took 10 minutes for hot water in the shower. above our room was a resturant, so you could hear tables being moved, and chairs The room was not cleaned / bed not made, even though it was meant to be serviced

Great location.

We have just spent 5days at Avni apartments and found them hard to fault. The location is great for transport restaurants and Kensington Gardens only 10 minute walk away. The tube is only 100 meters away and gets you directly to and from airport. Two supermarkets also nearby.

We were upgraded from a studio

We were upgraded from a studio to a suite. TV was poor which may have been the reason it was available. Internet access was great and location was ideal. This was the 2nd time we stayed here and will definitely use it again.
