I think it is cheaper than similar hotels as there is no lift and hundreds of stairs - not for the unfit! However, it is clean and everything in order and the location is lovely: Short walk from Queensway on Central Line and even shorter walk to Bayswater on District/Circle so one can get to Oxford Street, Knightsbridge, Victoria station.. in minutes. the walk from the stations are down a busy, well lit high street with a variety of shops so it is a safe walk home at night. The hotel is a 1 min walk from high street opposite a leafy square. We had a big fan in the room which was most welcome due to the hot weather and the bed was very comfy. This isn't a luxury hotel for which you would pay two or three times as much, but more than adequate for a couple of days in London. I think cleanliness and location are important and it leaves you more funds for shopping!
