“Great value, breakfast and service in a prime location.”
Reviewed 2 March 2011

Very pleasantly surprised by this hotel. Friendly welcome from the reception staff. Our room on the second floor was not small and the en suite was spotless, with none of the grime and stained grouting often found in bathrooms at this price point. Maybe we were lucky but there was not much traffic noise and the trains were a gentle rumble underneath and certainly nothing to keep us awake.
But the highlight was breakfast. Cooked to order and served in a clean, light, airy room by very cheery yet professional staff, it was decidedly better than breakfasts I'be eaten in hotels with two or three more stars.
Would I come back? Definitely. At this price it's hard to find a better place, other than staying with your mum.

I paid £49 for a single room, the room was small but this is only to be expected in London, the hotel is in a traditional converted London house so no lift. The decor is good, not pristine but better than most in this price range. The bathrooms are like you'd get in an Ibis, plastic prefabricated so small but clean.

What really makes this hotel though is the breakfast and the really pleasant staff who serve you, and it an English breakfast, yes English !!, a nice surprise.

What I liked about Avon hotel: 1. location 2. free full english breakfast 3. very helpful staff 4. free wifi. The hotel itself is basic; the rooms were small but they were clean. The Underground runs nearby the hotel so it's good to stay in the 1st floor or above. There's a bus stop 20 meters away that is serviced by buses from Victoria Station or Oxford St. Paddington Station is a few mins walk away. A hot breakfast is made for you when you show up for breakfast. The staff are friendly and accommodating. I will stay here again on my next visit.

Stayed at Avon Hotel for 3 nights. Location excellent as tube and buses on doorstep.Had a triple room on 4th floor, which was roomy and lovely ensuite. Hotel is spotless. Breakfast was superb, plenty of choice, fruit, cereals, yogurt and full english----service excellent each morning. Proprietor's and staff lovely and pleasant througout our stay. We didn't hear a sound from within or without and slept soundly, and the bed's were "oh so comfy " !!! Proprietor brought suitcase to and from room, and while there is no "lift " to rooms, we didn't find this a problem as it was just up and down once a day. Short walk to Marble Arch and Oxford St. and terrific location for the West End shows as the buses or the tube bring you door to door. Plenty of cafe's and shops around the area. We felt we were in a very safe environment. The cost of the accommodation was truly and absolutely "terrific" value considering the service we received and the prime location . I'm so looking forward to visiting London again---and the Avon Hotel !!!!!

We were really satisfied with our stay at Avon hotel. We had a family room of 4 on the first floor. Breakfast was hearty and to our desires. Staff was extremely helpful and gave us informationon whihc bus routes and tubes to catch whenever we wanted to visit a particular place. The location was also quite good as we were just 3 mins away from the heathrow express station and 5 mins away by bus from oxford street. We will definitely go back on our next visit to London

4 of us stayed in the Quad room which was an ok size. Bathroom is an all in one wetroom which is tiny and doesnt have a shower curtain so leave you clothes outside. Shower not very powerful but all very clean. Room was on top floor of about a million stairs, very hard to get up with cases and shopping! There was no luggage room even though it stated on website there was. Breakfast cooked to order and very tasty. We had no problems with the staff, they were very polite. Over all, for under £40 each for 2 nights we were very impressed. We were not there to sit in our room, just to sleep and shower. Would recommend for a weekend of shopping/sightseeing.

I'm sorry to say this but this hotel is the worst place I've ever stayed in. The room was so small my suitcase had to be left on the floor and I had to step over it or move it every time I needed to get into the wardrobe or the bathroom. The shower had no curtain so the bathroom ended up soaking wet whenever I took a shower. The toilet did not flush very well and it took ages to be able to flush it again. The room was dirty in places with a layer of thick dust on the TV and TV socket. The decor was shabby in places and wallpaper was coming off. The stairs were very steep and exhausting to climb, however it does say there is no lift in this hotel on the website. The only good things about this hotel are it's excellent location and the breakfast on a morning was lovely in a nice breakfast room. Also the staff who served the breakfast were friendly and kind so it's such a shame the rest of the hotel lets them down.
