New Linden Hotel
Ranked #605 of 1,077 Hotels in London
Reviewed 21 April 2009

This is a really nice hotel, in a good location. It is in easy walking distance to many tube stations. Being a residential area it is more quiet. Our room was small (typical London) and well appointed, with a great bathroom. Our room (304) although next to the lift, was still quiet. The staff here are excellent. Very friendly and helpful. Only points off for breakfast being rather ordinary.

Ideal location near lots of restaurants in Queensway and Bayswater. Particularly like the 4 Seasons Chinese near Bayswater tube station.
Staff very friendly and when I phoned reception for an iron and ironing board at 6.15 am. One was delivered within 5 minutes.
Although my room ws very good value it was hard to sleep as it was in the basement adjacent to the lift shaft and ws very noisy, some acoustic boarding is defintely required between the party wall and the base of the lift shaft.
Breakfast was adequate but embarrassingly they had a bowl entitled fruit compot which was straight from a tin of Fruit Salad or Fruit Cocktail. Given there were three woman on duty in the breakfast area and the availability of fresh fruit in London I fail to see how a quick bowl of freshly prepared diced fruit, soaked in fresh fruit juice could not be provided.
In spite of the above I'd definitely return, I just hope they have sorted out the breakfast.

Stayed at the New Linden in January 2009, I tried to book at 20 Nevern Square but they were fully booked, the kind receptionist recommended the New Linden.

The hotel has had a extensive refurbishment and is beautifully designed. The reception area in Black marble is simply class. The aroma of fresh flowers as you enter is soothing and calm. The receptionist was very friendly and the check-in was professional. The room was decorated to a high standard with a flat screen TV, free wireless, tea/coffee facilities in the room. I missed 20 Nevern as all hot beverages are on request (me being lazy).

The Breakfast was good but needs improvement, more fresh fruit, fresh juices.

I spoke the Manager on my departure as I was very impressed with my experience and would not hesitate staying here again if Nevern Square is full. He has assured me that the breakfast will be changed in the coming months and will be on par with Nevern Square.

I stayed with a friend for a long week end in London and we're very glad we had chosen this New Linden Hotel.
First, location: it's very good, close to both Bayswater and Notting Hill Gate tube stations in a nice and tranquil area of the town.
Then, staff: all guys at reception were very helpful, smiling and professionals. Also staff at the breakfast was good and willing to serve all their guest.
Hotel: reception is nice and well designed, with a mix of modern and oriental furnitures and a comfortable reading room with alsointernet access (to pay). Our twin room was not that large (but it seems to be an usual problem of most of London hotels), but recently refurbished to a very good standard with wooden floor, flat screen tv, coffee/tea maker, in room safe and a good bathroom. The only problems were sometimes in regulating the temperatures (often too hot) and some noises from rooms above us due probably to a "light" floor insulation. But not much to complain...
So, it was a very good hotel experience (in part. compared to other previous stays in London...).

This is a newly refurbished hotel, which was a pleasant surprise for me. I didn't expect to get a room here but was sent there because of a mix up at its sister hotel Twenty Nevern Square in Earls Court.

The staff at both hotels were extremely helpful and courteous and for my troubles I got upgraded to a suite on the ground floor.

This was an excellent room, really nice four poster bed, wooden flooring and a bathroom which was newly done up and had two sinks! Good flat screen TV too.

The hotel is about 8 minutes walk from Bayswater Tube and it's large number of shops and restaurants. You have to try Khan's - one of the best Indian Restaurants in London.

Loses one star for breakfast which is only just bearable. But that's not the most important thing...

this is a quaint little hotel in a nice location.
However, my feelings are biased by 30c heat with no a/c and no fridge. Maybe they wish to save on electricity and call themselves a green hotel.
Who knows.

Of course, the staff in the main lobby are all enjoying cool air from their a/c. This may possibly explain why they didn't really care about giving us any fans when asked.

I will not stay here again.

The reviews on this hotel are quite mixed, and we are among the people for whom the experience was positive. We stayed at the New Linden for a couple of nights (we booked at the last minute on laterooms.com and paid 94 GBP per night for 2 adults, inclusive of tax and breakfast). The hotel is advertised as a 4-star hotel on websites, but realistically it is a 3-star. With that in mind, it turned out to be overall good value (especially compared to other hotels in the same neighbourhood where doubles cost 150-200 GBP a night). The location is great; it's within easy walking distance from Bayswater station and very close to Westbourne Grove's shops, cafes and restaurants, and a stroll to Portobello Road. We had a double room on the top floor (reachable via the slowest lift in the world): it was quite small, but very clean and quiet with a very nice view and a modern, pleasant bathroom.
