“Small but great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 September 2013

Stayed for 5nights in September wuth my partner to attend sports event in hyde park! Walking distance to two subway stations, bus stop at end of the street which has regular buses to and from city centre and other areas. Hyde park entrance at end of the street also. Local shops and restaurants are two streets away short walk which has everything you would need! Rooms are compact but good value for money! Free wifi on request! Breakfast was passable, small selection of 2cereals, bread/rolls, tinned fruit and yoghurt, fruit juice tea/coffee! Staff very helpful although breakfast time can be busy! Would recommend to others and would return to hotel if in London!

My husband and I spent three nights at the Byron Hotel. It is located on a quiet street near the tube, bus stops, and restaurants. Shopping is near by.
The rooms are small but clean. The bed was comfortable. There was plenty of hot water in the shower. We ate the continental breakfast which was included in those room price.
We found the front desk staff extremely helpful and knowledgeable and funny!. We had to leave early one morning and they saw to it that breakfast was available to us before the dining room was open. I would highly recommend the Byron as an affordable, no frills hotel accessible to many
of London's best locations.

Room Tip: On a quiet street. Rooms small but adequate. Bed comfortable. Plenty of hot water in bathroom!

I recently stayed at this hotel at the recommendation of my travel agent. I normally book my accommodations but my trip was becoming overwhelming and I needed assistance. My travel agent made the booking for me based in my budget and the location I was interested in staying.

Upon arrival I was not happy with my room. It was facing the street and was a little noisier for guests that like to sleep with the window open for fresh air. The room itself needed attention. The hair dryer was not working properly, there was a large crack in the window, the window itself didn't close completely, the heated towel rack was not working and had exposed wires, the carpet smelled musty like it needed cleaning and the bathroom shower door felt like it was going to slide off at any moment.

I contacted my travel agent who went through the agency that secured the reservation because I was looking for a refund to stay at another place. The agency suggested I give them another try and change rooms. We elected to change rooms and boy, what a difference. The new room was facing a courtyard area and was much quieter. The room itself looked like it had recently been remodeled and everything was working properly. The staff moved our luggage for us and was very kind after the transition. They checked in with us after the relocation to make sure we were satisfied. In the end, the new room was an acceptable accommodation and was very pleasant to stay in. They offered a free coffee machine in the lobby as well a a continental breakfast that was included in the room price. I did not eat the breakfast as we ate out in the morning.

If it was not for the kindness of the night staff that checked in with us at the end of everyday to see what we did and if they would help with reservations or information, I may have a negative opinion of the hotel. However, customer service made the difference here and changed the end result to a positive one.

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you for the helpful review following your recent stay at the Byron Hotel.

I am pleased to read that you enjoyed our central location and highly rated customer service. We are more than happy, that you were overall satisfied.
Let me also take the opportunity to tell, that we are currently refurbishing the rooms, and we can do it only one by one, not to effect existing reservations. As you have noticed, we really do have wonderful refurbished rooms, so we keep continue with the work.

We are looking forward to welcome you soon again at the Byron.

The staff in this hotel were extremely helpful, every request for advice or help was met with a smile and a vey helpful response. The location is excellent within short walking distances from both Queensway and Bayswater Underground, and close to bus stops, giving easy access to Central London, Victoria rail and coach station and to Notting Hill Gate for Portobello Saturday market; and also a short walk from Kensington gardens. Queensway road, about 5 minutes walk, has a wide variety of cafes and restaurants, Room 24 room was clean and comfortable but a little bit
cramped. The included breakfast was good and plentiful, and the waitresses were extremely pleasant. My only complaint would be that the only fruit provided was of the tinned variety. We would certainly stay here again and would recommend this hotel to friends.

Room Tip: Not sure how you avoid noisy pigeons at dawn?

The room was clean and with everything you need, but very small. Moreover, it was a little bit noisy during the night because we can hear the other guests through the ceiling.
The neighbourhood is quite and close to many restaurants. You can reach underground stations and bus stops in a few minutes walk.

Room Tip: Ask for room not at mezzanine floor. It is close to the breakfast room.

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you for your review.

I am pleased to read that you enjoyed our central location, indeed, very accessible and close to the main sights of the city.
Our hotel is converted building, therefore, the sizes and shapes of the rooms vary. We certainly have bigger rooms as well, but in London, the rooms have generally not the average U.S. size.

I hope to welcome you back at the Byron Hotel again.

Kind Regards,
Carmen Gomez

This hotel is ok. Don't expect amazing luxury, but that's fine for the price we paid. The rooms are small, beds are ok. It's kind of old, but clean. The only negaive thing was that the airco did'not work, ut they were fixing it after we were gone. Breakfast was simple, but ok. The staff was amazing, so friendly and helpful. We left at 6.15 in the morning, and the nightguy fixed us some breakfast. The location is good, just a 5 minute walk to the nearest metro station at the centreline and just above hydepark. We would come back for another citytrip, fine hotel, as we were only there for a goodnight sleep.
