We booked this hotel based on all the positive reviews on Trip Advisor. When we checked in they gave us a room in the basement number B04. The bathroom was so small and one could hardly enter the shower. There were 2 large hot water boilers in the room which provided hot water for the building which seemed as a safety hazard. The room seems to be designed around a corridor as it is very narrow and long. The gentlemen that checked us in wasn't very friendly. In fact he was stuck up. I requested for a room change and he offered me a even tinier room a flight of stairs in front of the lobby and he had a "take it or leave it attitude". The next day another gentlemen by the name of Philip (very friendly and helpful) offered us another room in the basement. Room B05. Although the room was also extremely tiny it was square and alot more practical. Again take it or leave it so we had no choice but to accept it. The room had a small tiny window that is covered up so we could not look out. This hotel offered no housekeeping and zero service. For long stay guest, they would have to wash the sheets, towels and take the rubbish out themselves. We paid GBP140 per night and its way over priced for a hotel with no housekeeping or breakfast. There are plenty of better choice for that price.
On the positive side the hotel is well located. It is just 10 minutes walk to the restaurants & Tube station in Bayswater.
There are better rooms at this hotel and we were allocated a lousy one. If you are planning to book this hotel, you must specify that you do not want a room in the basement or the rooms facing the reception area as that will really ruin your stay.
