This is in a great location and when walking down the street to collect the keys, it looks very impressive. The accomodation on the inside is less than impressive. We had a studio apartment for 2 nights. We were in number 11 and were on the 3rd floor at the front of the building.
The windows have no secondary glazing so you can hear the traffic noise, people shouting and everything else that maybe going on outside the window! The walls are paper thin so we could hear the TV from the people in the rooms around us along with the rumble of peoples voices whilst they were talking. The people above us sounded like they were moving the furniture around all night so we could hear the scraping of furniture on the laminate floors. All in all we didn't sleep very well and were glad to get home to get some rest!
There is no lift so being on the 3rd floor meant a trek up 6 flights of stairs to our appartment carrying all of our bags. The room was clean but felt cramped. The sheets did not fit the bed properly and the double bed was actually made up of 2 single divan bases which didn't quite fit together properly.
The toaster looked like a death trap and none of the electrical equipment had been PAT tested! The TV didn't work properly and there was no light bulb in the side light
The wifi was ok if you were the only person on it and it would drop out frequently. The security certificates had also run out which meant that some of our devices would not connect to the wi-fi.
The room we were booked in was badged as normally being £400 for the period we wanted to stay, if we had paid full price we would have been asking for our money back!
So great location, in walking distance of Bayswater tube and just across the road from Hyde park but if you want to sleep I suggest you go somewhere else!
