I made a reservation at BBH when I couldn't find anything else a month before I arrived, even though I read some negative reviews here. The clerk gave me Room G3, which is adjacent to the office and dining room. The clerk was in a meeting when I arrived but quickly showed me the room. One look and I didn't like it so asked if there was another. He told me they were completely full and no other room was available. Though a very spacious room with a king bed and fridge, the curtains were torn and the room was sad looking (though bathroom was nice). And to top it off, I could hear the underground train rumble under my feet. I was really bummed out about it and knew I would have trouble sleeping (and I really needed some good sleep!). What a way to end my fantastic vacation in a substandard room! When I returned later that evening I asked another clerk, Harjinder, if there was a quieter room on a higher floor and he quickly offered me Room 13 on the 1st floor facing the park. Though a much smaller room, I really liked it better than G3. No sound of the underground and I slept very well those 2 nights. Thank you so much Harjinder! The bathroom was very clean and not too cramped, and the continental breakfast of toast and cereal was sufficient for me. Guests can use the internet in the dining area. I really loved the neighborhood. The Notting Hill Gate underground was no more than a 5-10 minute walk from the hotel. I would definitely stay at BBH again. The night desk clerk Harjinder is very friendly and personable and we had some nice chats. Only wish the clerk who checked me in had offered me Room 13 when I arrived. I'm puzzled why Room 13 was available in the evening but not when I arrived mid-afternoon. What started off badly ended up spectacularly.
