“Bad service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

The point of visiting london was to surprise my father and take him to watch his team Fulham......

We arrived on Sunday 18th November, it was very buzy at the front reception desk, there were only 2 receptionists trying to help everyone but it was still slow.And we got to the game late...... surely the hotel must know how many people are checking in / out on a particular day and they could get at least 3 poeple at the front ???? The lady with easteurope accent and the young man on reception were very helpful when we finally checked in.

The room was nice and clean and location was perfect close to 2 underground train stations but none of them was running that time.

Perfect location, immaculate room, friendly staff! Recommend to everyone who would love a wonderful stay in London! Kitchen fully equipped, complementary toiletries. I treated my girlfriend for our anniversary and she was gobsmacked at how nice the hotel is! The hotel is located in a remote area too so no loud noises can be heard from the city itself! Perfect!

We, 4 adults, were allocated to a room, quadruple executive room on the first floor, which has plenty of space and generally very clean and well kept. The kitchen was well equipped and clean, free wifi and we felt at home.
Staff were friendly and you can left your luggage before or after checkin. The one time free laundry is very handy and convenient as you leave it to the laundry operator for less than a day.
Location is good and you can take a bus nearby, also, the underground is within walking distance of say less than 15 minutes. A lot of restaurants, especially chinese restaurants, nearby in Bayswater.
Will book again when I next visit London.

Room Tip: Ask for room at lower floor as there is only one or two small capacity lifts.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Grand Plaza apartments give you the independence and catering flexibility of your own home together with the comfort and service of a 4* hotel. Think of us as your home, but with cleaning, catering, porters and reception staff thrown in. Serviced apartments are the new direction for the hotel industry. They provide a ready made home rather than a ready made room. Each apartment has its own fully equipped kitchen. You choose whether to enjoy your own home cooking or try the Grand Plaza Breakfast or visit one of the myriad of restaurants within walking distance of the Hotel (or heat up a takeaway!) Grand Plaza is the largest Hotel/Apartment complex in Bayswater. We won the 2009 award for best serviced apartments in London as a result of votes from the readers of Business Destinations Magazine. We accommodate more people each day (tourist, leisure, romantic and business) than any other Serviced Apartment Hotel in the area.We are located in the centre of the West End overlooking the precise type of garden square which Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts climbed into in the Golden Globe nominated film, Notting Hill! We look forward to providing you with a home in central London. ... more   less
