We stayed here over the weekend, a party of 5 in 3 rooms. We had 2 twins, both were a great size and overlooked Kensington gardens, minimal traffic noise and great views. We also had a double which was smaller than the twins but fine. Unless you are a large sized couple you won't have a problem here!
The bathrooms were large, clean and we all loved the showers. Staff were efficient, the breakfast was full of fresh food, lots of choice. You would have to be pretty fussy to have a problem with it.
It's near Queenway tube and Bayswater tube too. Lots of places to eat, yes they are touristy or ethnic. If you want more upmarket you would have to travel up West, but if you want a handy meal after a full day in London, it is fine. Also Tesco express, Sainsburys local on Queensway for water, snacks etc.
Yes, there is a petrol station underneath. So what? This in no way impacts on or effects your stay here!
The only complaint is that the wi fi wasn't working properly, which if you were travelling for business might be a problem. Otherwise this is a great hotel to stay if are sightseeing etc.
