We had a very nice stay at this place. Great location, clean rooms, nice staff at the reception.
Very close to Paddington, which was perfect when taking the Heathrow express. Only about 10-15 minute walk from there. The Bayswater area is also nice with restaurants and cafés. Walking in to the centre doesn't take long either. It's a nice walk through Kensington and Hyde Park. We didn't take the tube or bus anywhere. Since the rooms are considered as apartments they don't have cleaning service at all and if you want new towels you have to ask at the reception, which we didn't know until I overheard someone saying that in the lobby on our last day. But no biggie for us anyway.
People seem to complain about the size of rooms and bathrooms, but seriously, most big city hotels are like this everywhere around the world. I thought it was perfectly fine, you're not supposed to do any major activities in the room except sleeping anyway. Bathroom was small, yes, but it was clean. For someone with long hair it will take time to wash it though, because the shower pressure is very lame (at least on the 4th floor).
Everything was great and would have been perfect if it wasn't for the fact that the heat was absolutely unbearable! We had to go and buy a table fan ourselves because otherwise we wouldn't have been able to stay.
I also believe that in these modern days wifi should be available also in the rooms (now it's only in the lobby), but if it wasn't for the fact that I had to work a few days I wouldn't really have minded. So wouldn't stay again for business trips, but for just a regular vacation it's good.
Also, they charge £5 to store your luggage after check-out even if it's only for an hour, which I haven't encountered anywhere else in the world (unless you store it in a safe - which they don't). Should be for free unless you can guarantee absolute safety.
But all in all a good stay and I would stay there again; during autumn and winter, when it's not as hot. Or prepare to bring a fan with you.
