Helpful and co-operative staff, clean room, well located for exactly what we wanted near to Hyde Park and Bayswater High Street. We were particularly happy that we could leave luggage there all day with no problems.

Hi. Reception isn't open 24 hours but sister hotel Phoenix next door is and no problem dropping off or picking up keys. They have a board specifically for KHG keys so process is quick.

Just stayed there. Super-friendly reception. They are open from 8a-5p. After 5p, you have to drop off or pick up your key from the Phoenix Hotel, just a few doors down. Not an inconvenience at all.
