The Best Western at the Cromwell was in the perfect location...just off the picadilly line (gloucester road stop) you could access all the sights and locations within 15-30 minutes. Plenty of restaurants close to the restaurant but we choose to eat at pubs, restaurants located off the picadilly line.

fine hotel for quick visit/a couple

The room was extremely small, basically room for a bed and barely room to place our luggage down, but was clean and comfortable enough. As my husband and I were only there for a few days and were mostly out doing things, it was fine for what it was--a place to sleep and keep our belongings. The location is great because it is right near the Gloucester tube stop and a few stops away from many of the major attractions. We did not eat or drink in the hotel, so I cannot comment on that. Our room was on the 5th floor, and the lift only goes up to the 4th floor, so we had to walk a flight of stairs after getting out of the lift. While this was fine for us, it might be difficult for others, particularly with luggage, etc.

Excellent tourist hotel

Location excellent, across street from Gloucester Rd. Station and Piccadilly line. Grocery store across street. Laundry and plenty of fast food places and restaurants nearby. Room was a tad small, but normal I guess for UK although I would assume that higher tier rooms would be larger. I will stay there again and would recommend this hotel to others as a good value for money and excellent location.

The Cromwell Did Well

Great location near Gloucester Road Tube. We took a room with garden view - maybe not worth the extra money in winter, but probably quieter, away from road. Only complaint -- pretty poor quality WiFi in room.

Excellent location

Location great for walking to shops or museums. Tube station very close, which is brilliant when too rainy for walking. Local grocery stores across the road is super convenient. Hotel rooms very small but clean & modern. Didn't have breakfast but looked & was basic but sufficient.

Good value!

Considering the price per night, this hotel is a great value. Most day trip operators drop you off right in front of the hotel. The room is small but very clean. Its bathroom is modern (shower only though). Free Wi-Fi available but unusually slow. BREAKFAST IS NOT INCLUDED like most Best Western facilities know in the U.S. Most staff members are friendly and willing to help.

Just remember that price doesn't always translate into value. We chose a hop-on hop off tour operator based on price but later found out its routines had less stops and its buses were less frequent. Its drivers were less professional, too!

Great choice for the value!

Was there through Christmas and I was very happy with the hotel. The floors creaked in our room but we were on the top floor so I didn't hear anything above us. Room is small and similar to a cruise ship. It's Europe and what I expect. I've stayed at luxury resorts like the Ritz Carlton and Four Seasons but I have realistic expectations when staying value hotels. It was clean, nice staff, in a safe area and across from the the tube. It was just myself and my 7yr old daughter so I made sure we stayed somewhere that was comfortable for both of us.

Great Location & Staff

One block from Gloucester Rd Metro Station (LHR-Piccadilly, Circle, and District Lines). Staff booked us two-day pass on Big Bus Hop-on/off Tour with pick up in front of the station. Upgraded room to Garden View with deck (smoke, with caveats); beautiful. Room was larger than some large city hotels (New York, Paris, Sydney, Rome) but not huge. Very satisfied with location, service, value!
