I was staying in London for just a night and on the night I choose the prices where outrageous everywhere but this hotel was downright cheap. It's in a very nice neighborhood, had wifi and a free breakfast. The room was tiny but clean and that's all I expected. 5 minute walt to the very bottom end of Hyde Park.

Found through 'late rooms' at last minute - single room great price for bed and continental breakfast. Location great, 5 mins from Bayswater tube and one change to Covent garden / Leicester square area. Room was very small but clean, tidy and well thought out. Comfortable sleep. Breakfast did what it said on the tin. All staff I met friendly... More

We have stayed at this hotel several times over the last 10 years. We agree that the hotel is centrally located, convenient to tube stops, and several restaurants are within a few blocks. The lobby was staffed and clean. The noise on the street was quieter, as the local hostel visitors were less noisy than in previous visits. To add... More

We just returned from our trip around the UK, we had a great time. Staying in London at this place, nice area with plenty of restaurants in the area. Close to the tube. Room was very small and food just ok, the place needs some work

I felt safe walking in the area, although didn't spend too much time around. the room I stayed in, knew better days, and was badly maintained. the door for the bathroom was new, but was never painted - yes, you see the wood. 2 out...

We stayed at this hotel by default, as a hotel reservation we had booked through Expedia around the corner, was mishandled and was canceled. Imagine our surprise when arriving at that hotel and being told we had no room. Wimbeldon was being played and rooms everywhere were scare. The clerk at that hotel found online a room for us at...

A very nice hotel, near Kensington gardens, in a lively neighborhood. Very well located, quiet, clean, roomy, convenient. We slept in a four-persons bedroom and really enjoyed the space and view. Perfect location to discover London for a reasonable price. The staff was kind and always ready to answer our questions. The breakfast was a bit disappointing though.

Smallish bedroom for one person. Bathroom marginal making it very hard for a tall person when needing toilet. Bed was comfortable. However pillow wasnt changed from day to day and sheets. Despite that,fan was handy

Hotel is in a good location and has responsive and attentive staff (especially Gloria on reception who is extremely good). Room furnishings a little tired but nonetheless clean. The breakfast was good and overall it was a comfortable stay. I'd stay there again.
