I spent three nights at the Caring Hotel with my pre-teen daughter. We went for the cheapest alternative, meaning a room on the fourth floor, with shared bathroom. The final staircase was hidden behind a fire door that opened in the "wrong" direction when you are carrying luggage. But we are strong and healthy so we could live with that. It was nice to have a sink and kettle in the room. The beds were rather hard, but we slept well in this nice and quiet hotel area, with a nice view over a quiet street. The only negative surprise was the shower. It was one of those wall mounted showers that you cannot hold, and the water went in all directions. It was not good for washing long hair, but very tidy and clean, though. Breakfast was good, and was served between 07.30 and 09.00 on weekdays and 08.00 and 09.15 Saturday and Sunday - which suited us fine since we were there to go sightseeing, and then you still want to leave the hotel rather early in the morning to not waste any touristing time.
All in all - I wouldn't mind staying here again. Communications were good. Bus 94 between Notting Hill Gate and Piccadilly is very close and runs 24x7 (It starts from just beside Her Majesty's Theatre, where The Phantom of the Opera is showing - perfect for us!) 10 minutes walk to Paddington Station which is handy if you come by shuttler train from Heathrow.
