I did my research beforehand, so I knew that the room would be tiny, as most London hotel rooms are, so it was as I expected it to be. Luckily, my daughter and I are only 5'1" tall, so this wasn't an issue for us. The hallways are extremely narrow, and the lift is itty bitty. We didn't spend a whole lot of time in the room, as we were out and about most of the day. The room itself was very clean. Very basic, no fridge. Only a kettle to boil water, along with some teabags and sugar. Two bottles of water were left each day. There was a hairdryer. The hotel itself is very centrally located...the Queensway and Bayswater tube stations are just a block over, maybe a 5-minute walk. It is. very, very easy to find your way around There are a bunch of restaurants, predominantly Middle Eastern/Indian just steps away. There are many souvenir shops in the area as well. If you walk a bit down the main Bayswater Road, you will come to Notting Hill, and there are more shops and restaurants there. The continental breakfast was perfect for myself and daughter, as we don't like a heavy breakfast...there was coffee, water for tea, pitchers of juices and water, fresh apples and bananas, croissants, breads for toasting, with butter and jams, cheeses, cereals and milk. Our view was out the back of the hotel, so it was birds, garbage, and shabby buildings. My only real complaint was how uncomfortable the bed was...it was creaky and felt old and I woke with a very stiff back each morning. The front desk staff was helpful whenever we needed anything. I would probably use this hotel again, as it is so centralized. I would recommend this hotel to others, as well, as long as it's understood that the rooms are very, very compact, but serve the purpose of a bed to sleep in at night after a full day out. I mean, one doesn't travel from the US to London to sit in your hotel room all day...too much to see....
