The only half decent hotel in the area
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

so if you need a decent hotel in this area then it is pretty much the only choice, but its not a great choice..... despite being fairly new, its incredibly grubby and its just as well the room lighting is fairly dim! The air system just wasn't up to a hot summers evening and the windows didn't open so a fairly uncomfortable stay

Great Sleep

Stayed here last night for the first time because we were meeting friends in town. David at reception was very friendly, polite and helpful. We were given an upgrade and were in room 316 - this was a room for people with mobility problems, so was a large room and bathroom that was equipped for all this. The room was very quiet and comfortable and I slept like a log.

Really nice modern hotel, good rooms, really nice bathroom with TV to watch while you soak.

Stayed here in Jan this year with family, great staff really helpful, rooms were very clean, comfortable beds, restaurant food a little ltd, but hey Gordon Ramsey's London House hotel is nearby. right next to London Heliport, handy for Chelsea, Fulham areas.

A few hiccups
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

We usually stay at crown plaza Kensington but they had no club rooms available so booked here.On arrival I did think it was a strange location,surrounded by quite industrial buildings.We were told the pool was being re-tiled so couldn’t be used,there was also a lot of noise from work being done by reception.I was originally put on the 14th floor but I asked to be moved as I’m not great with heights and that was no problem at all,the staff were more than happy to help.I thought the heli pad would be a nightmare but on the contrary I really enjoyed watching them arrive and take off.I would stay here again but it is a bit off the beaten track to where my meetings are.

Disappointed guest
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

I'm very disappointed with the house keeping situation at Crowne Plaza Battersea.

I was a guest at the hotel for 10 days and noticed the following:
- Bedsheets and bed linen were not changed for four days.
- I left my used towels in bathtub signifying that I wanted them changed. When I came back, I found that the same towels had simply been folded and returned to the same place.
- Used coffee cups are simply rinsed in the bathroom sink and returned to the same place.
- I wasn't given a new bar of soap in all the time I was a guest here.

Other observations
- The breakfast in this hotel is terrible. Note that there are no decent restaurant options within walking distance of the area.
- A fire alarm was triggered while guests were sleeping. The evacuation process was not very organised.
