Byron Hotel London3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We stay at this Hotel whenever we are in London for many reasons. Firstly its excellent value for money. Our rooms have always been comfortable and clean with tea & coffee facilities & in room safe, the rooms are not huge but remember this is London where space is limited. Bathrooms are adequate with bath/shower & toiletries.Breakfast includes a wide range of continental options sufficient to prepare you for your exhausting day in the city or hot breakfast is available for just an extra cost. The staff are always very helpful and friendly, particularly Carmen On reception who is charming & always happy to help with anything you need. This hotel is in a perfect location, it is just a 4 minute walk from Queensway underground or a bus stop and just across the way from Hyde Park. The buses run straight down to Marble Arch & Oxford street & only take 10 minutes [depending on traffic] There is a charming lounge area should you want to just chill and relax after your tiring day. I always recommend this hotel to my friends as I have never been dissatisfied. Please remember this is not the Ritz and you are not paying Ritz prices but you will get just as friendlier welcome.
Having been given a room on the lower ground floor, i found it to be a very average room looking out on an outside stair well. We idid not sleep till 11 due to the noise outside (middle of London likly beyond the hotels control) were woken at 06.30 to oises from the store room next door (hoovers and such like stored here). The shwer leaked everywhere and the basin if not used with greatcare spilled water over the top at you. kettle was dodgey clearly no PAT testing done here, had to be hel din socket to work. Breakfast cramped and ok if you like toffee flavoured yogurt, not much difference between white and bown toast. All in all disapointing.
Really good breakfast. Excellent stuff, really enthusiastic and willing to help. The cleanliness of the rooms could be a bit better, but all in all the room was good, the bed comfortable. The location was ideal to travel around in London. Next to the beautiful Hyde Park and the underground. Would definitely recommend!

My daughter and I stayed at The Byron as part of a theatre trip to see Les Miserables in the West End. As two women visiting the capital staff at the Byron made us feel welcome and the service was friendly and professional. The twin room on the ground floor we had was perfect for our requirements, clean and well presented. There were tea and coffee making facilities, and there were additional drinks available from reception if required. There was a flat screen TV in good working order. Bedding and towels were clean and well laundered. The ensuite facilities were clean and well stocked with towels and complimentary toiletries. In the morning guests take their breakfast on the mezzanine floor above reception. Waiting staff were friendly and professional. The continental breakfast which was included in the price of our stay included cereals, fruit, yoghurt, croissants, butter and jams, meats, hard boiled eggs and cheeses, toast and bread rolls. There was tea and excellent coffee. Customers can help themselves from the breakfast buffet which included fresh orange juice, apple juice and cold milk. The restaurant itself was clean and well presented. Having read some of the other reviews on here from a minority of guests who have suggested The Byron Hotel should be avoided, I would remind all readers that for the location and price you will not find a much better deal than this one. The Georgian architecture of the hotel and tree lined street is beautiful and typically English. The area is quiet and safe and well lit, we were in easy walking distance of the tube, bus stop and the beautiful Hyde Park. We will definitely stay here again, and want to thank all the staff who made our stay so enjoyable. I would highly recommend people using this hotel who want to explore London from an affordable, comfortable and great little hotel.
My 4th stay at the same hotel. Perfect for a tourist in London, easy to get to transport over and underground. Good breakfast,comfortable beds, frendly and helpfull staff.Great price for a London hotel.
Stayed for one night here and it was horrible. The bed sheets were stained and the duvet was hanging out of its cover. The actual duvet was also stained. I slept in my clothes on top of the bed and covered up the pillow so as to not touch anything. The furniture was old and damaged. The soft chair was stained. Everything in the room was old and fusty. The bathroom was gross, the toilet was really stained and the shower was rubbish! It was like a powerful trickle. The room was cold and the heating wouldn't work, everything felt dirty. The doors were still locked by key and not key card. I didn't dare eat breakfast here even though it was free. On the plus side it's close to the tube and the staff on reception were friendly. I had to wait ten minutes to check in but the guy on reception was very apologetic.
I booked this hotel last minute to stay in London just for sightseeing. Location is great for the price and breakfast is included which saves you more money. Hotel staff are friendly and efficient. Room was small but clean. I would stay again.
We stayed here after a disastrous experience in Cornwall. The hotel is very close to the central line - about 5 minute walk. Doors to the hotel are open 24hrs and the staff are friendly. You can easily walk to the theatre district, or tube it if you prefer. Bedrooms where small, with creaky doors and none closing locks on bathrooms, but for the price and convenience this hotel is great!! We would come back...
We spent the last two evenings staying in this very comfortable small hotel. Our well-priced tariff included a generous continental breakfast. It is only five minutes walk to Hyde Park, ten minutes to Kensington Palace and seven minutes to Queensway tube station. It's also close to the shops and restaurants of Bayswater. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We would stay here again.
