It was an interesting experience. We were traveling with our 20yr old daughter during Christmas and Boxing Day from Cali. We purchased through Hotels.com, which is owned by Expedia. They have a no refund policy on arrival day, The 3 person room is pictured as 3 twin beds online. Our room had a twin by the door, then the bathroom, then down some stairs to a double bed, with a 15" T.V. It was a little better than motel 6, but not as good as a Hampton Inn. But $90.00/dy in London, sounded good during Christmas. I would have went to another hotel if there was a refund policy. For some reason hotels look better online than in person.
I liked the walk to Queensway Road, which is about 5 mins. away. Queensway has a mall, lots of eateries, shops, pharmacy, grocery stores, Starbucks, and theater ticket office. There are two tube stations, Queensway and Bayswater. The Queensway station connects to more attractions. Paddington station is close also, it has a line to Heathrow. We had a couple of complaints and the desk tried their best to solve them. Room was cold, they brought two heaters. The thick curtains block the heater. There was a sound of dripping water by the window. They offered to change the room. The free breakfast was served in the basement. You had to sign up for a 1/2 hour time slot for breakfast. We never made the sign up time, but we ate anyway. They have a good selection for breakfast.
The outside picture of the hotel online is a picture of the whole block. I liked the neighborhood, the buildings are scenic. The entrance to the hotel is one door on that block. There is a bike rental station 1/2 a block away.Overall it served its purpose. We were gone all day, we enjoyed London, and we could get some rest at night.
