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

The hotel located very near Kensington Garden - just a few minute walking, and few more minutes to Queensway station. The room rate is also reasonable and affordable to cost-conscious business travelers. I didn't try the hotel restaurant as it looks very boring. Breakfast is acceptable but the service staff are not always attentive - the same guy asks me... More

A last minute schedule change took me to London and almost everything was booked. This "4 star" hotel popped up and looked reasonable. From the curb I was beginning to think the high rating was optimistic, and my experience went downhill from there. Dirty lobby, marginally helpful staff, and an overall 2 star experience. Most of the other reviews are... More

Good: across from Kingston park walking distance to Buckingham Palace, 3 blocks from queens way station, away from busy streets, breakfast had huge selections, helpful staff Bad: the lobby carpet need updating, the paints on hallways were worn, the bed spring squeak on a slight turn, the floor squeak every steps. Definitely not a 4 star maybe 2.5 star hotel.
