Simply Rooms & Suites can be found in the affluent area of Kensington, an exclusive part of the capital with proximity to districts such as Notting Hill and Knightsbridge. The hotel is a few minutes away from Kensington High Street, one of the busiest shopping streets in London with a mix of high street and boutique stores. The High Street also houses the largest roof garden in Europe, Kensington Roof Gardens, which contain their own restaurant and are well worth a visit for views across the city rooftops. Simply Rooms & Suites is situated across the road from Kensington Olympia train station, which is connected to the rest of the capital via both the Overground and District lines for an easy journey to wherever you wish to go. Additionally, nearby South Kensington is something of a museum district within London, with notable establishments including the National History Museum and the V&A.
As the entire ethos of the hotel is to channel the resources that would be spent on additional facilities into creating beautifully designed and equipped budget bedrooms, there are no extra facilities provided. However, the surrounding area has an almost overwhelming selection of bars, restaurants, shops and clubs to keep you occupied and satisfied.
The entire concept behind Simply Rooms & Suites is to provide luxury, boutique guest rooms at an affordable price, and as such the bedrooms are undoubtedly the star attraction within the hotel. Each room goes beyond any expectations of budget accommodation, with a unique and creative design incorporating printed panels, soft lighting, wooden floors and a shot of colour through the deep red bedsteads. The thoughtful and contemporary touches are not confined to the aesthetic, and each ensuite room boasts facilities such as free wireless internet, iPod dock, workstation, LCD satellite television, telephone, coffee and tea making equipment, hairdryer, safe and ironing board. Executive Rooms and Studio Suites offer additional benefits, with a clever mini-kitchen containing a microwave, fridge and sink in the former and a full, separate kitchen area in each studio, complete with hob and oven.
