“My review of L.S.W”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

This is my first TP review. I have signed up just to leave a review because I was so impressed.


My customer experience at La Suite West was fantastic.

I was staying in the Inverness Suite and I was more than happy with what the room had to offer. The bathroom was entirely marble and had underfloor heating and a powerful rain head shower. There were also samples of Molton Brown products. The bed was very comfy. The suite was very clean. I had room service on various occasions and I was impressed with the friendly and speedy service. The hotel itself is located in Bayswater which is a walk away from Hyde Park and the main tube station - it is very well located. Knightsbridge is a 15-20 minute walk.

There is a mini bar in the room which is a £50 deposit a night which was not mentioned until I checked into the hotel - but if you don't have anything from the mini bar then it is refunded, unless you do have something, in which case they deduct from the deposit and give you the difference.

The staff are helpful, friendly and always happy to help. Nothing is too much.


My only fault with this hotel is that it is located in the Bayswater area. It attracts a lot of students and foreign nationals. It is surrounding in cheap / budget hotels. However once you are in L.S.W you forget about that and you can soon start relaxing in the luxurious bedrooms. I did on 2-3 occasions (in the 3 days I stayed) hear the tube vibrate the room and I was on the 1st floor. However this is a Victorian building and is expected.

La Suite West is on par with The Dorchester.

We have been very suprised by the very nice and new hotel. At the time of our stay if was opened for half a year, so almost new. It was clean and bathroom was very nice, cleaning was spotless. The only negative was the quality of food during night, which couldnt compare to really great room service food during the day. The location is also very close to the centre.

We stayed for 2 nights at the end of October for a birthday trip to London. The location of the hotel is superb , two tube stops within 2 mins walk and close to Notting Hill . The welcome at the hotel was excellent , we had a good sized room on the ground floor overlooking a quiet back street , but we weren't there for the views. The style of the hotel is minimal and dark , an outstanding design by Anouska Hempel but may not suit everyone. The room had a large four poster bed , desk and sofa , a small but stylish bathroom with under floor heating , although compact the bathroom worked very well and was pleasant to use . Lots of hanging space and storage , but far too few clothes hangers. On the second night we returned to get ready to go out for a meal and 10 mins later a birthday cake was delivered to the room with the compliments of the hotel , that single gesture signified the amazing service the staff gave . They noticed us coming back in , arranged the cake immediately , all the staff new it was my birthday and the room we were in , outstanding personal service , they all wished me a happy birthday on our way out knowing the cake had been delivered.
We ate in the restaurant on the first evening and the food was superb , highly recommend it , breakfast was excellent too , but a little slow maybe.Some candles in the restaurant at night would just give it a more appealing atmosphere and encourage more people in .There is also a beautiful terrace to dine on in better weather, a real oasis away from the street.
Some reviews have mentioned the flooring which is sisal so a little" rough" maybe but slippers are provided , but the rooms are a real pleasure to stay in .
We had one or two niggles , lack of hangers , no turn down the second night , lack of a light on the desk , and a sofa which was comfortable but no light near it and the tv would not swing out from the wall to view it from there .The minimal design needs perfection as every blemish shows, there was still paint all over the window and splatters on the dark wood screens , and a bit of the bathroom shelving that had no paint on it at all, think they still need to do a snag list as it is a new hotel.
Overall an amazing stay in a stylish hotel with outstanding service , in a great location. I would not hesitate to return and be happy to highly recommend it and the restaurant ! Looking forward to a another visit !

Room Tip: Room 13 was roomy and very comfortable , but you do hear the gentle rumble of the underground as it...

We had a very enjoyable stay in La Suite West, from the moment (early) we arrived until the moment we left the staff could not be more attentive. Everyone from Anand at the front desk to Simone in the dining room.
There is an excellent choice for breakfast and the food is very good.
At dinner we were treated to chicken "lollipops" and prawns on a "high wire", the menu is very innovative and very tasty.
Our bedroom, while a bit on the small side was comfortable with a very comfy bed.
The location is great, minutes from Bayswater and Queensway tube stations.
We would definitely recommend La Suite West, great staff, great location.

We stayed here for one night whilst on a weekend break in London.
First impressions were very good - reception staff very friendly, as was the porter! He worked long hours Saturday and Sunday but remained upbeat and professional - he is a real asset to the hotel!
Our room was pretty small - just the standard room - but for what we paid was well above anything else you would get that close to the centre. Bathroom and shower in particular were amazing - nice underfloor heating. Had an iron sent up to the room which proved difficult due to lack of space but we managed. Bed was very comfy and nice fixtures and fittings throughout.

We would definitely stay here again if we went to London - keep it up.

Room Tip: Room 316 was great for us

Stayed there for a quick weekend break on first impression very good nice welcoming staff room was neat a bit small but sufficient lovely bathroom with good old Molton Brown goodies adequate selection of teas and coffees .... No dunk able biscuits though although a complimentary wee packet of macaroons arrived along with water .... But omg the noise from the huge great air conditioning unit outside was dreadful. We complained and they upgraded us to the ground floor this was a bigger room but yep still noisy by now it was around 2am so we said sod it and stayed put. Don't think I'd go back font like being in a room where there aren't windows feels bit like a posh prison. Sorry guys .
