My 4 friends and I stayed at this hotel for 4 days and 3 nights. After reading all the awful reviews we were so scared of what we will find once we got there and we even considered cancelling our booking. To our surprise, the room was actually really nice.
We stayed in the room B3 in the floor below the reception. There were 3 single beds and 1 double. Although it was on the basement, the room was spatious and bright, it had 3 big and beautiful windows. The beds were comfortable and clean. The furniture and carpet were outdated but oh well, they served their purpose. You had a frigde in the room, too. The bathroom was our biggest suprise, you could tell it had been refurbished not long ago. It was spacious and clean as well. There was a big towel for each person in the room
There was a heater to heat the whole room, and let me say it was enough. After an hour the room was completely nice and warm. Yes, you can feel the subway sometimes but unlike some of the reviews here, it's not that annoying and no, it doesnt feel like an earthquake, just a slight vibration that doesn't prevent you from doing anything, not even sleep. We had no problem whatsoever to sleep at night.
Every morning after we left to go sightseeing, the stuff would go in the room and make our beds, put more tea and coffee and clean around, not thoroughly though.
Wifi signal was a bit weak in the room, but still usable. The signal was perfect in the dining room.
The dining room, or living room was really nice, it had comfortable armchairs, chairs and some benches. There was a computer that you could use anytime, also a microwave. The breakfast was not assorted but quantity was good. There were two types of cereal, toasts with jam and butter, milk, coffee and juice. You could eat and drink as much as you wanted. And if you want to eat something else, you can always bring in your own food to the room.
The staff was quite nice, especially the reception staff. They would answer our questions with their biggest smiles.
The location of the hotel can't be any better. Notting Hill it's a beautiful and calm neighborhood. It's a five-ten minute walk to the subway station, bus stops, restaurants, gift shops and the local grocery store.
To sum up, we would aboslutely recommend this hotel if you're on a budget and you don't want to spend ages getting to places on public transportation.
