    Great location. Clean rooms. I switched rooms with the person I was travelling with because I couldn't drag my 20kg bag up 4 flights of stairs. So other than no one to help get settled in, it was a great bargain. Will stay here again.

  • 4.0.Fair

    We were disappointed at how outdated the room looked. The mattress and pillows were really uncomfortable and rigid. We booked a triple room for three people and only two face towels were provided. The staff didn’t let us know we could call or ask for anything if it was missing and there were no instructions in the room on how to get in touch. The noise from all around and above us was really loud and constant. If someone walked upstairs we could hear it.

  • 8.0.Very Good

    It was an old residential home converted into hotel. We came in before noontime due to our flight’s morning arrival, and the staff who accommodated us lets us in early and provided us good information and tips on how to get around the city being first timers. There is no lift and we were in the top floor so its quite a challenge to carry our luggages up. We reserved a room with double bed and bathroom. It was small but I guess that’s what we should’ve expected in 2 star hotels in London. Although, it was clean and tidy; the cleaner actually make up our room and replaces our towels daily which is great! Location is a walking distance from Bayswater and Queensway stations, as well as Kensington Palace and Gardens. It’s very easy to get around from this spot and looking for restaurants or convenience store is a breeze here.

    Very nicely located near Bayswater underground station. Plenty of restaurants around. Room was very clean and well appointed despite its smaller size. Staff is welcoming and eager to accommodate reasonable requests. There is evidence of caring in their attitude. I would not hesitate to recommend and return to this hotel.

    The Kensington staff at this character property were wonderful during daytime. The location was close to shops, transit and restaurants. Modern bathroom. Hotel was secured 24 hours. Our visit was during a heat wave. Despite provision of fans, the room was quite hot. The room smelled a bit either of cigarettes or perhaps mildew. The WiFi was poor. The arrangement with the attached Phoenix Hotel was not nearly as friendly. Standing on the doorstep in the evening loudly repeating personal details into the enterphone after hours to be let in, was uncomfortable and probably a bit risky.

    Very close to two subways. Room was very quiet and clean and I would recommend it. Walking distance to Kensington Palace and parks and shops in the area for everything you need. We stayed two years ago across the street and loved the neighbourhood and access into London

    Bayswater Area hotel close to Underground

    The single room was up several flights of stairs as there is no elevator. The original booking was to be on a courtyard but was at the front of the hotel on the Kensington Gardens square which was quiet at night. The hotel is not far from the Bayswater underground stop and I wheeled my suitcase the few blocks to the hotel
