Great position!

The facade is gorgeous, as are all the buildings in the area. The hotel is ideally located just a few minutes walk to shops, transport and Hyde Park and about a fifteen minute easy walk to Portabello Markets! The interior is getting tired and in need of some TLC! We booked an 'executive one bedroom' apartment and were initially allocated a ground floor rear room. One our arrival at the room we were greeted by two ladies from housekeeping spraying 'room deodoriser ' and were told to eliminate 'former guest smells'! However, it soon became apparent the odour cover-up was due to the damp and Chlostrophbic nature of the room. The two windows both faced brick walls where huge air conditioning fans were housed. They were covered in algae! We requested to change rooms and were kindly shown a few options. Looking for light and airy we settled on a small studio apartment on the fourth floor. Although this was a cheaper option and no refund available we decided it was a necessity to enjoy our London stay. Overall, position - fantastic; rooms - tired- not completely as images show; staff - ok... But not overly friendly or accommodating; needed a good clean, paint, carpets!!!!

London Getaway

My friend and I stayed for a week...and everything was perfect for us! The staff was very friendly and greatly helped us as it was our first time abroad. Also super close to the Bayswater Underground Station and the Bayswater Arms, a fantastic pub.

Great for short stay; excellent location

I booked the triple room for 3 people and even thought small, the room was comfortable. It's very close to an area with numerous restaurants and Bayswater station. Tip: Take the day pass for 8.90 to travel around in London...worth it!

Dirty and uncomfortable/cramped

Very cramped and dirty apartment and I use the word apartment in its crudest form. Location is good but the first 'apartment' we were shown was very dirty - carpets unclean and sofa stained and showing advanced sign of wear - plus we had to carry suitcases up the final set of stairs as the elevator didn't go to the top.... I stayed at the hilton on Edgeware a week prior but wanted more room as i was travelling with my wife. Checked out early as it was just tooo bad.

Short stay in London

Lovely hotel, clean, quiet, comfortable, small room but cosy. Everything in the room worked! Hotel reception staff warm, welcoming and very courteous and helpful. Excellent location for tube, loads of lovely restaurants, supermarkets, grocers, Pubs, chemist, bank and post office close by and Whiteleys Centre. Definitely will go back.

No hot water

Over the course of our 7 day stay, we had hot water only 4 times despite numerous complaints and the manager's reassurance he would look into the problem. Most of the desk staff was surly if we asked for information about any topic. Overall, a very disappointing experience.
