We stayed for 2 nights (couple, early 30s; January 3-5, 2014). We did the booking 1 day before via expedia.com. We paid. $US 234.50 total (which is US$117.25 per night, very reasonable for a hotel in London, non refundable rate). I am glad that I didnt read these reviews, because I would have booked somewhere else. We are the type of people that like to explore the city and just use the room to sleep.
We were at building 77, Room 3.
We were arriving from another city in England, so we used a Taxi from Paddlington ~7 pounds cost....from the train station to the 55 Building Location. When we got in (around 2pm) there were 2 people doing the check in. There were maybe 3 people before us, and the waiting took maybe 10min? Specially the lady at reception takes her sweet time to do everything...and I agree, she is not very friendly...but I think is more because of her personality. She is not mean or anything.
**Please note that if you have mobility issues this place will not work for you. There is no lifts, and our room was at the top floor (4 sets of stairs, and as you go up, the stairs width reduce considerably...)
-The room was clean, the bathroom worked fine, lots of warm water and good water pressure.
-Location! 2 metro stops nearby: Bayswater and Queensway. Lots of cool restaurants that we saw people eating even at 12 midnight. Safe to walk around. Supermarket (Sainsbury) close by the Bayswater metro station.
-Fully equiped kitchen. We used the microwave and the oven. The kitchen has full sets of dishes, kitchen ware, utensils to eat, glasses, etc.
-TV in room, we didnt turn it on, so not sure what channels they have
-free wireless that worked fine. you need to ask for the code at check in. We didnt, so we had to return the next day and ask the super busy lady doing all those check ins.
-We were told at check in that cleaning only happens every 6th day as such we will not have any change of sheets/towels, etc. It didnt matter to us, we were just there for 2 nights.
-No shampoo and they only give you 2 tiny soaps, and 1 roll of toilet paper. No backup of toilet paper in the bathroom. We were ok for 2 days.
-Bed. Cheap bed. I slept ok because I was super tired, but my partner who is 6'4 complained about the mattress quality.
I will stay here again in the same room. We enjoyed our stay. We had no issues.
