“Cosy and comfortable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

Cosy B&B in Central London at a very good price. I stayed in a single room which was small but perfect for a one night stay when on business. The staff were friendly, knowledgeable of the local area was very useful!
The room and communal areas were very clean and I would definitely stay there when travelling to London again.

We stayed at No 63 again for 8 nights - The staff are excellent, with very clean rooms, serviced daily which leaves more time for discovery of London delights. The Lancaster Gate tube station is only 150 metres from Number 63 so make it very easy to commute from - The bus stops right outside as well. Breakfast is included in the room price which we believe is very reasonable. A pub " The Swan" is about 150 metres which does lovely meals. Walking distance to other restaurants, shops, chemist. Showers are excellent and towels supplied daily if requested. Airconditioning which we needed as the weather was warm (20 - 25 degrees). As our room faced Hyde Park and Baywater Road we found the soundproofing excellent. A new lift has been installed since our last visit - great!! Security is excellent and property well maintained. Breakfast was great - a cooked breakfast (if required), juices, cereal, toast, crossiants, coffee & tea. What more could you ask for. A delightful place to stay thanks to Debbie and her excellent staff. Highly recommend!!

Room Tip: The rooms have excellent soundproofing so any room would be fine.

Perfect little hotel - very attentive staff, very clean, convenient location and great breakfast also. Couldn't fault the place! Would not hesitate to recommend Number 63 to anyone travelling to London.

Spent three nights (non-consecutive) in three different rooms at Number 63 so I experienced the Bayswater Road side and the quieter rear side of the hotel. All rooms are neat and clean, staff is helpful, and the breakfast in the lower floor dining room was a treat. Talk about tranquil! (Love the green paint and wallpaper!) The breakfast (buffet and made-to-order cooked options included) was one of the best I've had in the UK or Europe.

The hotel rates and wonderful location one block from Lancaster Gate and walking distance to Paddington are fantastic. As a note, Number 63 is affiliated with the Soroptimist Club, so it has a quieter club atmosphere and conference room. If you're looking for flash and dash, this may not be the place for you, but if you'd like a quiet, friendly hotel option in a central location, try Number 63.

Room Tip: The quietest room was in the center/rear overlooking the fire escape "courtyard." Bayswat...

Number 63 is more of a B & B than a hotel. I have stayed there at least 5 times - alone and also with my husband - it has been updated quite a bit since my first stay. The breakfast area is new and fresh and one can make their own coffee from freshly ground beans. The single rooms are small but have everything one needs. I usually ask for a room over looking Kensington Park. The front desk is always incredibly nice. The comment about the tap being too hot has to do with not knowing how to adjust the temp - all one had to do was ask how it worked - there is a separate dial in the middle of the shut off valve. I can't imagine how few nights in London would require AC but some rooms do offer it - just ask. The reception area which over looks the park has a small bar and is a delightful place to sit after a busy day.

Room Tip: Great views over the park but be mindful it also faces a busy street. I love the street noice but o...

My room was poor - decent size and reasonably quiet (at the back) but had a leaking tap, the shower temperature (too hot) did not adjust and a broken sash cord meant that I couldn't open the window for ventilation on a stuffy night. Breakfast was ok but served by a rather surly woman.

Maybe I was just unlucky with the room I was allocated but they need to maintain the place properly and unless/until they do I won't be back..

Reception isn't manned until 08.30 so if you're checking out before then you have to do it the night before.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are really quiet.

I've stayed at 63 many times over the years, in single, twin and family rooms. It's in an excellent position, just accross the street from Hyde park and only a couple of minutes walk from Lancaster Gate underground station.
The staff are always friendly, there's a good choice for breakfast. The hotel has a homely, genteel feel to it and feels very safe.
I would recommend staying at Number 63
