For a London hotel, we were pleasantly surprised, but there are some rough edges that could be easily resolved. It makes us think that the hotel's managers should really spend a few nights in their own property. My wife and I stayed here in November 2013 on a short trip to London, staying in room 40 which overlooks the road from the 2nd floor. The room we had was a small studio apartment complete with a kitchenette, dining area, washing machine, and a spacious bathroom. The bed was large and comfortable, and unlike every other hotel we've stayed at in London the TV had hundreds of channels! :) The staff were warm and friendly, and helped us check-in early without fuss. We also thought that only cleaning the room every two days was an excellent environmental saving. Cupboard space was ample, and the inclusion of a safe in the room is very useful. Everything seemed excellent, but we quickly discovered the rough edges that let the hotel down. In the bathroom, we found the lighting to be inadequate around the mirror (although it looks like there was once a light above the mirror that has since been removed), and the ventilation didn't work. Likewise, the warning about the floor being slippery when wet is insulting considering the shower-head is attached to the wall using the wrong mount that doesn't hold the head at an angle, meaning that it sprays water beyond the shower screen and awkwardly to the other end of the bath. We found a growing mould problem in the bathroom, but in the hallway outside the room it also smelled mouldy. This was nothing compared to the elevator, within which the mould smell was intolerable and make it impossible to breathe. I've read from other reviews that the hotel recently had a flood, but there's clearly an issue with dampness that is an ongoing battle. On the other hand, despite the thin single-glazed windows, we found the street quiet enough for light sleepers like us, which is amazing considering it's such a short distance to the shops and the tube. With the kitchenette, M&S and Tesco are right around the corner, meaning you can stock the fridge if you like to save some money, particularly for breakfast. In summary, 10 Pembridge Gardens is almost a fantastic hotel, and if the mould issues are resolved we would certainly consider returning.
