Reviewed 8 June 2014

This hotel is not a modern, cookie-cutter hotel. I felt I had stepped back in time. All the charm one would expect in an old hotel: small, very cozy bar, comfortable reception area, tiny elevator, great location.....Paddington station is four blocks away and Underground across street from hotel. Just by chance I got upgraded to a suite - I felt I was in some British manor house and that some royalty was going to sweep into my huge siting room with fireplace, French windows and balconies, tons of old classic furniture. My bedroom was large, but had horrible lighting (don't plan on reading in bed). There was also a balcony off the bedroom.

Good continental breakfast. Very civilized experience. In all fairness, I believe most rooms are smaller and old fashion BUT the charm still exists.

Location is ideal - across the street from Lancaster Gate tube station and entrance to Hyde Park. Room, a deluxe twin, was very spacious, clean and comfortable. Common areas very nice. Elected to include bfast and glad we did. Food was good and plenty for starting the day. Staff very accommodating and helpful. Will definitely be a repeat customer.

Room Tip: Deluxe rooms will give you additional space. worth it!

We stayed here one night, before flying back to USA.
The staff was very helpful is arranging us transportation to Heathrow in the early morning and even gave us coffee while we waited for the other gals to come down in the morning. ( 4 of us) 10:00 am flight)
The beds were comfortable, the bathrooms were clean, may need updated a bit but was just fine .

We were able to wlk to Oxford Street for shopping and many restaurants
I had no complaints.

Room Tip: Lower floor, very small lift!

Stayed here for three days with two friends. We had spacy room on 4th floor. The room was a bit worn out, but ok. Windows faced to street, so it was noisy, although it was on 4th floor! But fortunately we had ear-plugs :) Elevator is really small and stairs made us feel a bit "dizzy", because the two last floor´s steps were so slanting.The staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was ok, though not very wide. The location is great, it's next to beautiful Kensington Gardens, Notting Hill and Lancaster Gate underground (red line) takes you easily to Oxford Circus and Bond Street. We used Gatwick airport and it's easy to get there via Victoria station.

This little hotel is nicely located with a bus stop out front. The tube is very close and we have stayed here before so we knew the perks and minuses. Some rooms are dated but there is English charm and all are clean. The continental breakfast is pretty good and Hyde Park is a stones throw away, a plus as it is a welcome friend to Susan and I to end the day before retiring. The value is reasonable and service is good, generally rooms in the back are better but sleeping has never been a problem here. I can't complain about the free breakfast, nor should you ,stay at a 4 or 5 star hotel (we have) and you will get none without a hefty cost. I would stay again if we weren't so much happier in South Kensington, but this could change.

Room Tip: the hotel is usually pretty booked so rooms are likely pot luck on arrival , generally stay in a bac...

It is an old building and some of the decor, curtains etc are not the highest standard, but,,nor are their prices. Lovely breakfast, very attentive staff, a rather old fashioned serving style but nothing wrong with that, we stayed in the room over looking the bus stop on the ground floor, sounds like hell, it was as quiet as a grave, good double glazing. Wonderful central location and for 130 pounds per night in central london a bargain, well done but get out the repair kits for the chairs and curtains.

OK, I've stayed in a lot of hotels, but this one just didn't do it for me. The location is fantastic - at Hyde Park, beside Bayswater - so lots to do. My experience was soured by a bad room (#220) - that was very old and dated, too small, too warm and too noisy.

I did 'complain' and ask to be moved, but no other rooms were available.

The room was facing the main road and at ~4am the on-street noise levels really started to increase as the City started to come alive.

The breakfast was good (albeit continental not cooked - which is an extra cost - but still reasonable) and the hotel wifi was fast!

I think the Hotel appeals to tourists possibly going for the 'ye olde' English charm factor.

So, a good location, but not a hotel suited to me...

Room Tip: Standard single / double rooms have no air con only a ceiling fan (of limited use) - you need to ask...
