“Perfect location, good hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

Stayed here three nights. The hotel has about as good of a location as you can get - centrally located near the Tube (two stations on two different lines - so most places you can get to directly), near a lot of shops and restaurants, yet set back a couple of blocks from everything on a quiet square. I was able to sleep with the windows open and heard little to no noise.

Which was good since the window was literally six inches from my ear. The room is small - they tell you this up front when making a reservation so I'm not complaining, but it takes a bit of getting used to, especially the bathroom where they miraculously fit a sink, toilet, and shower all within a few square feet. They do also somehow fit in a mini safe and mini fridge in the room, which was nice. Room was cleaned well every day.

Wi-fi was free and worked perfectly. Breakfast was not worth it, 7 pounds for not too great of a selection. Especially given the multitude of cafes, etc. nearby, it's not hard to find something.

Thank you very much for your review about London House Hotel. I am pleased to read that you were satisfied with our hotel’s location, cleanliness and facilities. Our breakfast is fully continental and convenient for quick start for an upcoming day. However, we have plenty of restaurants and coffee shops nearby for guests who prefer more varied or hot breakfast, as you said. We hope to see you at London House Hotel again soon. Regards!

I' ve not stayed in Bayswater before and found the hotel to be a quiet oasis in a lovely area that os Queensway. A clean, bright and friendly hotel from the moment I checked in to when I checked out. Whilst the room was compact, it was fine for my one night stay as all I was doing was sleeping there. The hotel was good value for money and I will be staying their again in a few weeks time.

We booked two weeks at this hotel. The room is comfortable, has a safe large enough to store electronics, a small fridge, teapot and hair dryer. Our room was located on the garden side of the hotel. We slept with our windows open and hardly heard any street noise. It is located within a short distance to two underground stops, Bayswater & Queensway. There are plenty of places to grab a bite to eat nearby as well as a couple of grocery stores and drug store. For those who enjoy Starbucks, there are three nearby. The staff at London House is friendly and accommodating. Should we return to London, we will stay here again and will highly recommend it to our friends.

Room Tip: Ask for an end room on the garden side.

Bad experience here! The room is too small especially the toilet! The facility is a bit old. Too nousy outside and you would hear other people open and close their door.....you even can't sleep well! Not comfortable T.T
The location is fine with lots of restaurant nearby and 10 mins to underground.

Thank you for your comments. I am happy that you were satisfied with our hotel's central location and I am really sorry if you were not fully satisfied with our hotel itself. We are located in very quiet square and our facilities are being upgraded constantly, including our recent renovation. However, we understand that all our guests have different expectations and we do our best to satisfy every single customer. Warm regards!

This hotel is about 3 minutes walk from Baywater station. Rooms are ok, has everything you need. its not a full service hotel, but there is a lot of different restaurants around here. Can recommend staying here if you are in London.

The hotel is at very good locations and very well kept, friendly receptions people.The hotel itself is clean and welcoming and the room was small but cosy and comfortable. ... There is not much room for luggage so do not bring big suitcases!
