Overview

About The Pavilion - London

Funky Rock'n'Roll hotel in Central London

The Pavilion Hotel is a small funky laid back townhouse in central London. Created by the brother and sister duo of Danny and Noshi Karne as an eclectic, exquisite alternative to boring hotels.
Danny is a former fashion model who got tired of staying in boring hotels around the world and wanted to set up something different.

All the 30 rooms have ensuite facilities and are decorated in a variety of amazing styles, from Honky Tonk Afro - as a tribute to the 70's through to Better Red Than Dead - a room covered in every imaginable shade of red. Popular for photo shoots and with actors, musicians and pop stars, it's regularly used for TV and Music video's.

Recent guests…

Supermodels Sophie Anderton, Naomi Campbell, Erin O'Connor, Bridget Hall and Honor Fraser.

Actresses and Actors Kate Beckinsale, Helena Bonam Carter and Estella Warren, Daniel Day Lewis, Charles Dance, and Antonia 'Huggy Bear' Fargas.

Musicians including The Sugar Babes, Craig David, Jools Holland, Bryan Ferry, Ian Brown, The Manic Street Preachers, Neneh Cherry, Morrisey, Badly Drawn Boy,
Faithless, The So Solid Crew, Jarvis Cocker, Marine McCutcheon, The Libertines, Mis-Teeq, The Beach Boys and Duran Duran

….most of which have begged to know how much their room service bill is!!

We stayed here recently and it's certainly funky and has a great location. As some of the other people said, it has seen better days. It's a fun place to stay and you get a cute breakfast tray delivered to your room in the morning. On the downside, having any contact with the staff was awkward and our really small room had two lights not working on the first night, which meant we were in there in near darkness. You really have to take this place for what it is.

I chose this hotel because of it's central location and quirky style,it definitely delivered the quirky. However,it has obviously seen better decades...could do with some TLC and a bit of refurbishing. I originally chose the "Indian Summer" room,only to be shown by the porter that the four poster bed wobbled so much it was hazardous...so we changed to the "Enter the Dragon". The room was a nice size,but I had been curious about the bathrooms as there isn't even a mention of them on the website...when you get there you see why. They have concentrated all their efforts on the wacky themes...then completely neglected the bathrooms,it was essentially a white cupboard with a toilet slotted next to a tiny shower. Worse than that you had to climb a step and side step into the shower as the door was incredibly close to the adjoining wall...I am quite a small lady....if I had been a size 12 or up I doubt the shower would have been accessible. Also the bed in that room was very low and the bedside tables were over a metre tall...not very practical! There was also an issue with the tv not working (not that that really mattered to us), and a lack of sockets-the only ones being in very awkward places. Despite all of this,I cannot fault the location, it was excellently situated for access to the tube,Hyde Park, Restaurants,Bars etc. The parking was very reasonable,there was CCTV and a 24 hour reception. The staff were friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast was delivered to our room free of charge and was nothing fancy just a couple of croissants, muffins,some cereal,milk and juice but it was nice. All in all I think if you're looking for luxury this isn't the hotel for you,but if you're looking for a shabby chic easy place to crash in central London then it's perfect.

The Orient Express - The Tzar's Palace - a Lizard's lounge - Alice in Wonderland?... No words can describe it. You have to experience it for yourself. I left a bottle of Champagne behind me as I checked out.

Rude and unhelpful. Hotel staff did not make good on promised accommodation. In discussions with the hotel management at the time of "check in" they were rude to the extreme. We could not even stay there and had to find a different hotel at 10 pm at night. They took our deposit for two nights stay even though they could not accommodate us. When we arrived back home we petitioned through our credit card company to be refunded our money but The Pavilion argued that the credit card company and ourselfves had no jurisdiction to retrieve the money.

Complete crap! Paid for a room in May 2008 and lefter after finding an adult "toy" in the cramped, dark, unclean room. This place might have been cool in 1986 but now is a dusty trash-hole.

Brilliant - been staying there for 4 weeks and likely to stay for 4 more until I can be bothered to find an apartment. Deano. xxx

Possibly the most amazing hotel in London in the most unlikely of locations...from the moment we walked in we felt like Super Star Rockstars - laidback and very very funky. I've made it my mission in life to try every room...

We enjoyed the stay there - a bit different as it's meant to be. It's more about an experience than comfort as I expected - v creative approach. A great idea having themes without it being a Disney thing. Down side for me are just rooms are v small but it's £100 for London so.....
