My second trip to this hotel this year. In a quiet area, but convenient for the Underground and Kensington Gardens. The room was comfortable and well maintained during the stray, the pool was refreshing and breakfasts had plenty choice for a buffet continental breakfast. I would recommend this hotel for anyone intending a short stay in London.

Worst hotel ever. Shower not working . Breakfast not up to the standard . Eggs watery . Coffee was worst . Need to go down to get iron board and iron . Reason was one staff at the reception . It's below 2 star . Would not recommend this hotel for stay.

This is the first time I write a review but this hotel is a real disappointment. People who work in this hotel are totally obtuse and they don't understand and listen to your needs. Please, don't book this hotel

4 nights at Henry VIII in the mid of july. In every other country it's a 2-3 star hotel but in London it's a 4 star. Very friendly staff. The breakfast is ok and feels fresh. The rooms are small and old but they keep them clean. AC and fan included. In the basemant they have a small swimmingpool and... More

This place is ok. Clean and in a great location for exploring London. Staff are friendly and there is a pool area. Rooms are small and the hotel is in need of a refurb but it's more than acceptable given the price and location.

I stayed here for 2 nights, good location for tubes and Hyde Park. Room was small but clean and everything worked as it should do. Breakfast was ok, continental. If i need somewhere clean, cheap and basic to stay in Bayswater I would consider this again.

Needing a cheap night in Central London before going away, I came across this hotel and thought it would fit the bill. We didn't want or need luxury, just a bed for the night, and that's pretty much what we got. Last minute reservation meant this was a pretty inexpensive deal especially including breakfast (which was mediocre continental style buffet).... More

The title says it all. If location and price is important it will do. If you want more in accommodation quality look somewhere else. Very basic hotel services though breakfast is included and acceptable quality. Room was extremely small including a bathroom and poor sound insulation. No Internet access was in the room but available in the lobby on a... More

Beware of lots of coming and goings by escorts in rooms. There are strange mens wandering around. Clean enough but you get the idea the staff are edgy and strange. Breakfast was served on dirty plates.

All I really need for a business hotel is a clean room, comfortable bed, and a solid internet connection. I’m really not that picky when on business. This place is a big FAIL for me and I would never go back. The only good thing I can say about the Henry VIII hotel is that the place seems clean. While... More
