“Haven of peace in a busy city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

A short tube or bus ride from anywhere you want to go. Get an "Oyster card" for transit which you will need anyway in a big city like London and you are set. Circle line "Bayswater" or central line "queensway" will be a five minute walk away.
Ask for a big bright room overlooking the street or a quiet room overlooking the garden.
Zeus the cat is awaiting you.
Impatience flowers in the garden.
Friendly staff from all over Europe and beyond will fill your every need.
All that is left is to enjoy this immense city and come back to your oasis.

Room Tip: Large bright facing street Quiet facing garden

From the first moment we entered the hotel the staff were friendly and very helpful... We were taken down to our studio and it was lovely..
Very spacious with brilliant amenities.
There was only one minor issue and that was for us it was incredibly warm overnight in the room.
The room was lovely and clean with everything you would expect tea and coffee,toiletries and lots of fresh clean towels.
The hotel is only a 10minute walk from queensway tube station and within an easy walk to Notting hill.

Stayed for three nights on the 3rd floor single studio since my usual hangout (London House Hotel) was fully booked - very friendly staff and good cleaning.
The room is tiny but has all you need including a kitchenette and clean fluffy towels (high quality) and a very nice back garden view. As with most oldish London hotels you will be able to hear your neighbours but since this hotel seems to attract a quiet bunch ear plugs might not even be needed.
Be prepared for the stairs - otherwise this is a very good place.
The location is great - 15 min walk from Paddington and close to Bayswater and Queensway tube stations. Quiet and calm area with plenty of food and a Waitrose round the corner.

We spent six nights at Vancouver studios and were overall really happy with our stay. The hotel is on a quiet street. What we liked most was the location, just a few blocks from Westbourne or a few blocks from Kensington or Notting Hill. Great food nearby and shopping. Rooms are small, but that's to be expected. Would definitely stay here again.

This is the second time we stayed at Vancouver Studios, and loved it. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Location is great, very close to Bayswater station. Many good restaurants around, great vibes of the neighborhood.

Room is kept clean all the time. Balcony rooms are beautiful (our first stay), even though double rooms (second stay) are a bit smaller, they are very comfortable and cozy. I could totally live in my double room forever!

The hotel has a beautiful patio and living room. Nice places to chill before or after a touristy day. The decor is full of beautiful antiques. Make sure to admire all pieces.

I use the hair dryer a lot, so a more powerful hair dryer would work best. No elevator.

I definitely recommend Vancouver Studios to couples and business people.

Over the past 8 years, we've stayed at Vancouver Studios many times. The location can't be beat - close to 2 Tube stations, a block away from a busy shopping district and close to many lovely pubs and restaurants. The kitchens in the self-catering rooms are well appointed. The rooms are clean and the staff is always helpful and friendly.

Enjoyed our stay here. Staff was wonderful, friendly. Room was an adequate size, bathroom was on the smallish size, especially if you're 6'4". Bed was comfortable. Construction workers working on a building behind us were a timely group of folks as they started promptly in the morning but also ended late afternoon so not really a problem. Neighbor was wonderful! From the Prince Edward Pub to the shwarma's on Queenswater! Bayswater tube stop is about a 5 min walk and the Queensway tube stop a couple of more mins further. Walking distance to Kennsington Gardens and Holland Park as well as a couple of high streets. Though a bit of a distance from major attractions, the tube got us there easily and we were able to get a feel for more of London then just tourist sights. Clean, comfortable, and friendly place to stay.
