“Good overnight accommodation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2014

Excellent location in Kensington, just 5 mins walk to tube stations and lovely bars, restaurants and shops very close by. Very friendly reception staff and very helpful. We asked for a family room which we were offered in the basement, very spacious, clean and comfortable. Offered complimentary continental breakfast but unfortunately we did not get up early enough to take advantage of this offer. Breakfast was offered at £8 per person which we thought was a bit steep and not included in hotel price. Overall yes I would stay there again. Loved the location.

Room Tip: Try and avoid basement rooms as they right next to the kitchens and the restaurant and directly at f...

The reception was very helpful with the booking and checking in. We asked for a large room which we got (relative to the others). Room 801 on the ground floor was decent size for it's purpose. Lovely view out, old fashioned high ceiling. Tiny but efficient en suite with shower. No additional "selling" of services etc.. Quiet area in London but close to tube (Bayswater and Chelsea). Chelsea area great for restaurants and breakfasts. So we did not have meals in the hotel. In terms of cost in London, good value for money.

Room Tip: Room 801 for size and view out.

Ok so stayed at this hotel last weekend for a quick overnighter. Lovely place, room was REALLY nice for a last minute hotel in London. It's a little tricky to get to, my GPS had a field day trying to find it, but it's tucked away nicely in the corner. The room was pretty spacious, nice comfy bed and nice bathroom as well. Minutes away from Hyde Park, Whitely's mall and other places. Would def stay again

I stayed in room 806; a reception level, relatively quiet room except for the extremely squeaky floorboards in the room above. There was also humming of different sorts in the room, but not enough to disrupt sleep. If you do require the additional wifi access, the transmitter is directly next to the sitting desk, so no worries on reception. The hotel is in very good proximity to the Bayswater and Queensway tube stations and many restaurants and food shops (along with tourist souvenir shops). The front desk was able to print off needed emails for me as long as I forwarded them to their email address. My largest complaint would be about the breakfast service. The music playing seems to be more suited to the staff than the guests. There is a open buffet of cereal, yoghurt, juices, tea, toast, etc. You may also order a full English breakfast, which is a bit less than what you may receive at a B&B. They do not bother heating the tomatoes and the food is served on a room temperature plate, which causes the food to chill quickly. Correcting this would serve to make the meal more worth the additional price paid. Overall, I would stay again, but may find breakfast elsewhere if not corrected.

Don't expect the bells and whistles here.

PROS:
- great location. walkable and safe and close to the Tube. Some restaurants and bars nearby but not sure if they were any good.
- rooms were fairly clean
- the man at reception is super funny and let me use his cellphone to make a call (see below)
- the woman at reception gave me some money to get some water
- beds were comfortable

CONS:
- small everything: beds, rooms
- provided only the bare minimum bathroom items (shampoo, soap)
- phones weren't working the days i was there
- WIFI ISN'T FREE
- very basic and bare bones room

As long as you're not expecting a ton of frills, this place isn't so bad.

I really liked this little place. It was easy to find (just off the Queensway and Bayswater tube stops). Located in a neighborhood close to Hyde Park, it felt safe and well-traveled. As a solo traveler coming in from the US, I so appreciated that they allowed me to check-in as soon as my room was ready. It's true, the rooms are small, but they have clean, private bathrooms, flat screen tvs, and comfortable beds. I didn't make it down to breakfast, but like that it was offered until 10AM. I would certainly book it again if I have the opportunity to return to London (I certainly hope so- London is a WONDERFUL city!).

Room Tip: Try to request a room on a lower floor. They don't have AC, so the higher you go the warmer it i...
