I spent two nights in the Commodore Hotel, on business (conference attendance), and - as a single guest - I was offered a basement (they call it "lower level" - lower than what, I wonder?) double room. Reluctantly enough, I visited the room, and decided to decline the offer. First of all,their was an unpleasant feeling of not so fresh air in the basement, probably intensified by the proximity of the breakfast restaurant. There was no use to open the window, which gave way to an inner yard containing industrial-looking arrangements. As I refused the room, I was given a single room on the 3rd floor, which I could reach by the elevator but I also had to negotiate a number of steps of a wooden staircase, with my luggage. Luckily, the bellboy helped. The room (no. 303) is as small as it can be, though it has all the amenities possible, even a desk where I could use my laptop (no Internet, thank you, for which they charge a lot, which is not justified considering the high price paid for the room). The room was cold at night, I could not get a higher temperature from the air-conditioner (obviously before-set). Otherwise, the continental breakfast is enough, and the restaurant staff friendly and helpful. It feels fine to be in the proximity of Kensington Gardens/Hyde Park, though the closest shopping street is about one mile away. There are buses and taxis passing by, I want to conclude by saying that I am sure the rooms in between the basement and the servants/storage rooms sould be much better, and deserve the comments that the hotel is "good value for the money."
