This is a lovely hotel in a not so lovely street of Bayswater in London. The hotel itself ticks all the boxes for "boutique" but BEWARE there are NO KING BEDS in this hotel. Dispite all advertising (including their own website) there are no rooms with King Beds, they are all doubles. This aside the hotel was lovely, the staff... More

Dear Cassandra, Thank you for the review. Glad to see that most of your expectations were met, in particular about our fantastic team! Our beds are larger than normal but they are not king size. Please do let me know how where you have seen this advertised so that I can rectify immediately. We look forward to welcoming you back.... More

Room was very clean and modern. With an ipod dock which was very handy! Some slight noise/rumble from the tubes. Stunning and large bathroom with two shower options. Great selection of tea and coffee and I requested fresh milk which was sent very quickly. Would highly recommend as this hotel is right next to the tube station but is still... More

My sister and I stayed in La Suite West for a small trip in London. At first, the entrance can be surprisingly discreet (we even wondered if this was the main access), but as soon as you get inside you can see that when you enter La Suite West, you are invited into its world. It is a real stance... More

This hotel is a great option in London. It's true that the rooms are all decorated in black and white monotone, but that is part of its appeal. It's sort of a Japanese minimalist style. Although the decor is simple, the modern feel and upscale amenities create a luxury experience. It's sort of the closest you can get to luxury... More

This is another Anouska Hempel designed hotel – that means minimalist. White everything that shows its age quickly, plus cheap black stained symmetrical wood furniture designed for looks rather than practicality - sofas and the like are not comfortable. The whole thing feels like you’re living in an IKEA catalogue from the early 1980s! Location is an issue. In 6-8... More

Dear I_need_a_hols, Thank you for your review. It is disappointing to read that the work of highly acclaimed Anouska Hempel did not meet your approval. I fully appreciate and accept that the appreciation of interior designs is very subjective and is down to the individual's taste; however, I am somewhat confused by your statement related to the "IKEA look".

Avoid this hotel at all costs! Beyond tiny rooms. Watched the staff mishandle a situation where the electricity and water were out for hours. Never an effort to find rooms nearby for their inconvenienced guests. Basement room with a view of an airshaft. That's what I call luxury. Surely you can do better for the price.

Dear Woccer, Thank you for your review. I am terribly sorry about the issue with the electricity power cut. This was entirely beyond our control and it affected the whole area as well as other businesses. Downtime lasted only 2 hours and it is a very rare occurrence in London. I hope this will not deter you form visiting again.... More

Where style over function goes wrong. The hotel is not only located close to Queensway, which is fairly downmarket, but once into the reception the design is minimalist black cage.

Dear rarereviewerEssexUK, I can see that you did not approve of Anouska Hempel's design! This is a real shame as her style is very unique and well received by the vast majority of our guests. Quensway and Bayswater are beautiful multi-ethnic areas of London with plenty to do and see, so perhaps next time you are in London you could... More

Booked this hotel through Secret Escapes, didn't know what to expect but it was a pleasant surprise,great location for the weekend events at Hyde Park, room, staff better than expected, breakfast good, freshly cooked to order, and of good quality.

Positives - location easy to reach and in the heart of bustling Bayswater. Very clean, very comfortable. Heated bathroom floor a nice touch. Free wifi & iPod dock. High design concept.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
London's newest luxury boutique hotel.Located on a quiet street on the edge of London's magnificent Hyde Park and close to the West End and Paddington, is the minimalist and latest creation of famed British designer Anouska Hempel.Ranked one of the world’s top 100 interior designers and architects, Anouska Hempel has also made a name for herself in landscape design and high fashion and has owned, designed, and managed several award-winning, luxury boutique hotels.Here at La Suite West, the aesthetic takes the shape of a stark temple of black and white, where clean lines meet sharp angles and sculptural forms. A corridor of inky-black marble floors leads guests up to an unusually long white marble reception desk.In the garden, crisp lines and sculptural forms that characterise the hotels interior are echoed in meticulously pruned plants, trees and hedges. Leading from the hotel restaurant, food and beverage service is available, making it the perfect location for cocktails or afternoon tea. ... more   less
