Reviewed 27 May 2014

The Byron Hotel is an absolute steal in an overpriced under-served city like London.
1) Great Location: 2 streets from the Bayswater Tube Station this hotel is very centrally located. Walking distance from Hyde park and various other London attractions.
2) Extremely clean and spacious rooms & bathrooms, a far cry from most properties in London.
3) Super Friendly staff which is always ready to accommodate your requests.
4) Free Breakfast: which includes various options to cater to different preferences.
5) Room Rates are very reasonable as compared to similar properties. Value for money.

I will definitely recommend the Byron Hotel for anyone planning a trip to London.

Just concluded a 6 day visit here, the hotel was very clean, comfortable and the staff were exceptionally friendly and responsive, from front desk to the restaurant. Traveling as a single female, I like the area and that the hotel keeps the front door locked with 24-hour security/front desk management. My lower end room was sort of small, but comfortable and clean. There were a number of nice looking common rooms to compensate. Would definitely stay there again.

Spent one night in what was probably the smallest room in the tippy top of the townhouses that form the Byron Hotel. Everything was neat and clean, although the small WC and shower room were probably once closets. Had a lovely window that opened out onto trees backing the row of houses on the next street over. Hotel is on a quiet side street off Bayswater Road and walkable to Paddington and several tube stops (Queensway, Lancaster Gate). Front desk staff was friendly, and I signed up for my breakfast time when I checked in. (Potential drawback or benefit depending on your point of view, if you check in late, odds are you'll get a later breakfast time.) The lift is fine although once you get off you may have to weave your way through London fire doors. All typical, typical stuff if you've ever been in a hotel in a converted Georgian townhouse.

The room was pretty small with a separated loo and shower. There were sinks in both the WC and the shower room. Anyway, clean room and nice breakfast the next day, although heads up that a cooked breakfast beyond toast comes with a charge, I think. Otherwise, some basic buffet options on the sideboard.

Room Tip: I was traveling solo for one night, so I went with the least expensive option but know that the sing...

Dear Travel5425,

Thank you very much for your stay with us and your feedback!
I am very glad to hear that you could enjoy our adequate in size, but clean and neat single room!
You have very well spotted that our hotel consists of two converted Georgian Townhouses, therefore room sizes may be different depending on the room type.The Byron indeed is just walking distance from the Paddington Station or Bayswater and its' located just off the street noise on more silent Queensborough Terrace.
We are always looking forward to receive your requirements for your stay and we are always trying to allocate the most comfortable room as per your needs!
We are definitely looking forward to see you soon again and hope that you will have a safe journey home!

Kind Regards,

Carmen,

wish to note the amiable & helpful attitude of the reception staff, especially Ravi, who attended to our needs with great consideration. Room was small but adequate. Great location! on a quiet street but close enough to the bustling Queensway & its two tube stations with lines enabling u to go all around, and especially Kensington (& hyde park) Gardens which represent the english countryside at its best. Try to go out there early in the morning .. heaven on earth

A party of 4 adults, we recently had a 3 night stay in this lovely hotel. Great location, just across from the north end of Kensington Gardens and very close to Hyde Park. Vibrant area for pubs, restaurants and small shops within a few hundred yards. Tube station and Bus stops (including the open-top tour bus) very close.

Whilst I agree with some earlier comments about the rooms being small. They were fully functional, including a safe, trouser press, flat-screen tv, tea and coffee facilities, air conditioning and plenty of drawer space.

The shower was the best 'power shower' and the largest, we have ever had in any hotel we have stayed in.

And most important of all, the room was really clean and tidy.

In the reception area free hot drinks are available, which was nice to have after a long day walking around the sites of London. Also, the lounge was a nice quiet area to have a read. Free Wi-fi is also available, with a good level of connection.

The reception and breakfast staff were extremely courteous and friendly. No request being too much to ask for.

All in all, our stay at The Byron Hotel was a very pleasant experience and we would not hesitate to recommend it.

Room Tip: We had room 10, which is on the first floor at the front of the hotel. Lovely room!

Stay in this lovely family-owned little hotel alongside Hyde Park. Simple breakfast of yogurt and toast served daily. Quaint (small), clean and affordable. Genuinely friendly. Close to the Tube (train) and a lovely pub for dinner.

Great location! Close to shops, tube stations! But very, very small room!

This is a hotel where you can probably stay for 2-3 nights maximum. The room we stayed in was on the 2nd floor - end unit, which was really small! We had to walk around our luggage - it was that small! A tiny bathroom suitable for our needs but can't imagine anyone much bigger than us staying in this particular room! We did ask for a bigger room a few hours later and the reception kindly offered us to change to a bigger sized rooms - but we were going out and did not want to bother sorting our luggage again.

Comfortable enough for our 1 night stay. Great service (helped print our tickets and offered to change rooms). Wonderful location!

Room Tip: Check the room size! They will kindly offer alternative rooms if any is available.
