Good stuff: Staff was very amiable.
Bad stuff: Fix the slamming fire doors.
Overall: The St. Simeon provided a very homey and welcoming atmosphere; the staff seemed eager to please. Our room was somewhat shabby (worn matress, nonworking TV, broken closet door) but clean; the en-suite bathroom had been newly renovated but the shower was already broken. Breakfast was plentiful (eggs cooked to perfection!) although very basic (i.e. cheapest brand of instant coffee; orange juice little more than colored water). Guests should be wary of attempts to bait and switch rooms. The cheaper room we had booked was not available when we arrived (the previous guest had supposedly not yet checked out) and we got talked into a higher-rate room. To cover themselves with your booking service, the staff had us pay the booked rate by credit card and the difference in cash. While we had admittedly arrived slightly before check-in time, we are suspicious of their claim of nonavailability because a staff member had already tried to convince us to upgrade our room when we had called ahead from the States to confirm our reservation. As we were checking out, the owner/manager was on the phone ordering new beds and there were many workmen in the building, so it is probably fair to assume that some of the problems I mentioned are being addressed. All in all, given the high price of lodging in London and given the exellent location of the St. Simeon, we'd consider staying there again.

Good stuff: Good location, good service, friendly and helpful staff
Bad stuff: small bathroom, old facilities, not always in best working order, tv reception poor, no teamaking facilities in room
Overall: Overall and given the price it's been a satisfactory experience. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The location is great. The breakfast is by far the best I have ever had in a B&B in London. Lots of fresh fruits, pastries, biscuits etc. all you can eat. The staff don't stop serving you and keep piling more and more on your plate. On the downside, I would point to the small and very basic rooms. TV reception in my room was very poor + no teamaking facilities in the rooms (apparently due to fire regulations????). However, I suppose that for this price it is not a bad deal. In my opinion it's good value for money.
