- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Close to Gloucester Road Tube. Attractive, clean, warm, lovely breakfast. Friendly staff. Free WiFi. Television. No unwanted noise. Tea and Coffee in rooms. Fluffy towels. Modern key system. A really enjoyable stay in a modern twin room.
We had a room on the ground floor, which was very small ( you get what you pay for) £212 for 3 nights: but spotlessly clean, decent sized bathroom and comfortable bed. Was also very quiet and the room was very warm. Unfortunately the view was not much to look at but we where only there at night so it didnt matter. The staff where lovely, extremely helpful. Breakfast was fine for us , cereal, toast yoghurt fruit cheese ham and eggs (all cold). If your a fan of cooked breakfast this is not the place for you ! Great location 3 minutes walk from the tube station.
Mediocre room - drab decor, strange crackly carpeting, uncomfortable bed. The second night we stayed, they were fixing the door in the room next door for about an hour, slamming the door and shaving or scraping the doorframe about 1000 times. I complained in the morning as politely as possible, and the front desk person presented me with the alternate fact that it had only been 3-5 minutes! I was on a skype call for 45 minutes of the hour in question. It was definitely an hour. I guess he thought I couldn't tell the difference between an hour and five minutes. Never going back, never recommending.
My wife and I stayed at the Avni for 3 nights just before Christmas. The hotel is in a very nice area with so much to see around. Gloucester Road tube station is only 5 minutes walk away for a 10 minute rude to central London. The hotel is modern with nice decor and the rooms are a good size with a very comfy bed. Overall a very nice hotel,beautiful area away from the hustle and bustle of central London but close enough to walk or tube into London. Highly recommended!
Rude counter clerk and management made for an unpleasant experience; Refused to give receipt after paying 3 nights, then upon check out, was informed I had stayed 5 nights! I argued and immediately changed hotels, and informed them such behavior should be reported and made aware to the public.
