“Good Location, Very Small Rooms”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

We stayed here for three nights, following a 2 week cruise, wrapping up a month long adventure. We stayed near Victoria Station at the start of our trip, so wanted to try this location just half a block from Hyde Park. The location is wonderful, with lots of restaurants nearby and in a very quiet street. We spent all day Sunday, enjoying the dozens of artists displaying their works on the fence of Hyde Park, walking completely around the park, and even making a side trip to the famous Harrods Department store. All doable if you like walking. It was a beautiful, warm day, so many of the citizens and tourists in London were also enjoying that beautiful park and gardens. The staff at the Comfort Inn were very friendly and helpful and the rooms modern and clean. They are, however, the smallest hotel room I think that I have ever stayed in. Free Internet works fine and a nice, but simple Continental breakfast is included. If you are planning on being out and about and just sleeping there, it is a good choice and excellent value.

This is our 13th hotel in our Europe trip and is, by far, the smallest! We are not backpacking, we have actual luggage, and this room is so small we can't get around the room without having to move our bags to do so. I see a bunch of recent reviews about this issue, but we booked it long before these warnings. The pics on the hotel website must be of their biggest rooms.
ONLY book this hotel if you are by yourself and have one small bad/backpack!

Quite simply the smallest hotel room I've seen in years. A double bed just about 12 inches narrower than the room itself. A tiny bathroom with a good shower, but the toilet so badly positioned it was difficult to sit on. Cramped to say the least. Breakfast absolutely minimal. The best thing about it is its location, and I suppose I might stay there again if (as on this occasion) there was absolutely nothing else in the locality of reasonable price. But it would never be my first choice.

Stayed at Hotel June 12/15. Mature Couple.
Small but comfortable hotel. Clean and well kept. Located 50 yards from Bayswater Road and
150 yards from Queensway. Very good front desk staff who were most helpful with getting us in with an early arrival time. They were excellent throughout the stay and assisted with anything we wanted. Would recommend this location to anyone requiring an inexpensive but adequate hotel.

Room Tip: Just ask the front desk staff, they are very helpful.

First night we were given a room (204) which had the air conditioning unit just outside the window so ver noisey and told there wasn't another available till next night. We were then moved to quote 'a room on a higher floor which faced the street and quiet'!!(that was until the dustbin lorry came at 6am) The room was the size of a rabbit hutch i could touch each side of the room. The bed was 3/4 size so we had to sleep one at the top and one at the bottom as there was not enough room to sleep side by side. The so called wardrobe could only fit in 4 items and nowhere to put any other lugguage, and as for the bathroom well the sink was about 9" across and was impossible to wash anything in and the water splashed all on the floor and to sit on the toilet well?!! if you were more than a size 14 you would struggle ,apart from the fact that everytime you went in there you burnt your arm on the towel rail. The breakfast dinning area was sparse and cold and the offer of buffett breakfast well that was sparse also. This was the worst hotel i have ever stayed in and not cheap at £127.50 a night!!! BUT i must say the staff were lovely and very apologetic about not being able to change anything for us. Don't bother complaining the management are not interested.

WARNING!!!!!! This is your notice and take care with using this hotel.
We requested a room for 3 adults with 2 large beds and a single. We were showing a picture
on the web site with a picture of the room. I have stayed in London before and know the rooms are small so i made extra call to Choice and verfied the room picture was the room i was going to get. The room showed 3 beds in a row. This was good as i know that it would have given us a little bit more room. Yes it would have been long and narrow but it would have been room.
We requested early check in. When arrived the front desk agent (later found out was the manager) said the room just check out and would not be ready to 1pm so no early check in. I understand that those come on a case by case. The manager said that he did see that we had the request for the early check in for the family room. He had advised that he needed credit card to check and charged fees for the whole stay at that point. (Don't do this before seeing what you are getting) He said go out and enjoy your day and he will deliver the bags to the room. This hotel is in a good location to Hyde park and we want to see the things in park and have a good dinner. When we arrived back at 5pm. the front desk had changed staff and the person at the counter gave us the key to the room. We went to the room and yep the bags were there. BUT the room was not the room pictured that we had booked and paid for so went back down to the front desk and explaind the floor plan was not as pictured and also after making a call before leaving the states. I did my home work. It was a clear case of bait and switch. When i asked to speak to the manger she said he was here this morning and i would have to take the room that i have now and talk to him tomorrow. She would not even make a call to him to let him know i was upset with the room. We could not stay in the room as it was way to small for 3 adults. May of been ok for two adutls and a child. but was too small and it was next to the elevator. Found out that the hotel has two family rooms and they are next to the elevator and you can here the people coming up and down on the elevator and even here people in the halls.. Room that small.. The bathroom you can not really get into it. It was so small they need to design it like other europen hotels with a built in floor plan. So with all this said and done and with no help from the front desk to accomade our needs we left the hotel after a hour and got another location to stay at that was 100 % plus better then this hotel. Went the next day to the hotel and talk to the manger as the front desk girl did not want to even refund our money for the room. Talk to the man that took our money the morning before and he said he could not give us the money for the room. He finaly said ok. i will refund your 2nd and 3rd night stay but he would not refund our 1st night even thought we did not stay there and we did not get the room that we had requested. He said he was doing us a favor for refunding our 2nd and 3rd night as he did not need to do that. My friend used her credit card and i did not want them to go back and deal with the situation so i did. I did not have the credit card with me when i went there so he said he could not credit the 2nd and 3rd night room without the card even though we did not stay there. He made me go back to the other side of town and get the credit card and come back again. I have worked in retail alot and you can reverse a charge without a credit card. He was the manger and he check us in on the morning before. He just wanted to make it difficult and not refund the money. He never gave me a receipt for the night stay, so who knows how there booking keeping is done. I stay at a lot of choice hotels and stayed a lot fo places in the world and know about the size of room and i would recomend stay clear of this one.

Decent hotel for your money. Clean up to date hotel decor. Only issue & it's a small one (pardon the Pun) the room was tiny & the bathroom... Well a challenge to go to the loo:) lol.
But overall it's a good hotel.
