This hotel strikes a nice a balance: A little savings in exchange for being off the beaten path (but still remaining in Zone 1).
You're a short walk from the Queensway stop on the central line and just a few steps further away from Bayswater station on the district and circle lines.
It's generally a quiet residential neighborhood. I'd compared it to the Upper West Side of Manhattan in New York. Pretend Hyde Park is like Central Park in New York.
Despite the residential nature of the neighborhood, the services on Queensway are surprisingly abundant. Every basic service is there (Starbucks and Pret for coffee; Tesco and Sainsbury's for groceries; Indian, Middle Eastern, Italian, Chinese restaurants; pubs everywhere), many were even open on Christmas Day.
Neighborhood tips: This hotel is 4 blocks away from the Queensway station. The property is bigger and nicer than a Hilton that's on top of the Queensway station. But if proximity to the tube stop is your top priority, you might want to consider the Hilton if it's for the same price. There are many money exchange stores on Queensway. Definitely shop around. But I found the store at 31 Queensway (didn't get the name) to have the best rate.
