“Great place, clean and comfortable”
Reviewed 10 November 2007

I found the Byron a nice change from some of the other places I've stayed in London. It was well-priced, clean, and comfortable. The staff was more than accommodating during my stay. The only negative was an insignificant one -- the elevator took oh-so-long each trip! Ahh, but the value, the location, and the courtesy extended made up for it 300 times over.
The tube is right around the corner, with an Internet cafe in the middle, making it awfully convenient. Hyde Park, just a block's walk was nice, as was the short walk to such neighborhoods as South Kensington made it a perfect location.

I booked the Byron mostly due to reviews on this website. The room was small, as expected, but clean and serviceable. The bathroom was fine except that the shower head would not stay up. The bed was comfy and the staff were friendly. The location was excellent.

I have stayed at The Byron Hotel yearly for the past five years and it has been a wonderful experience. The hotel is well located, far enough away from "the action" to be quiet, yet close enough to be a short walk from the bustle of Queensway with its two Tube stations and an even shorter walk to Bayswater Road, with its buses, and Kensington Gardens.

The rooms at the Byron are clean and well appointed, with newly refurbished en suite bathrooms. Wireless internet is available for a fee, which is very convenient.

The real pleasure of the Byron is the staff. From check-in to check-out, they are attentive and helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. If you're there for even a few days, they will know who you are, where you are and what your needs are likely to be. The ladies who staff the breakfast room and clean the rooms are wonderful. The desk staff could not be better.

I would recommend The Byron Hotel without reservation. It is truly a "country house in the middle of London".

This hotel sucks. I sent them an e-mail to cancel but the claim they never got the e-mail. I never got a response from them so I assumed everything was okay. Then afterward I notice a charge on my card, I e-mail them and THEN they respond. Seems fishy that they respond after it's already too late to cancel, doesn't it??? What a scam.

Stayed there for two weeks this fall - had several rooms, because we were there for a week, traveled, and then back, and then my dad left, so I had a single. Small rooms, with decent bathrooms and amenities, nice breakfast, great location - near the Queensway tube station, the Bayswater tube station, several bus lines, and the Whiteley shopping mall, which has everything. Several nice restaurants nearby as well. Would recommend it to folks looking for a nice place, good location, safe neighborhood, great amenities. Kensington Park at the end of the block - HUGE park, with many lovely walks. Peg

Nice, clean and modern hotel with continental breakfast. Room with bathroom and hairdrier. The staff were just super and with it's location near Bayswater and Quensway subway and just a few minutes walk to Kensington Garden it was a great stay for me and my 15 year old daugher. We felt secure and very well looked after.
It is also nice to find a lot of restaurants from all over the world on Quensway Street, the one we tried out a Chinese, Magic Wok was superb. We also visited the small shoppingmall Whiteleys perfect for shopping books and fresh fruit on Macy's. Hopefully we will be able to visit you soon again, thank you once more, kind regards, Anna and Malin, Stockholm, Sweden
