I have been staying at VS for the last 8 years and always enjoy my stay. The rooms are on the small side, but that is true of most places in London. It is always clean and pleasant. The staff is fabulous and I love Zues the resident cat that is always super friendly and gives me my cat fix...

Stayed here 3 nights in the apartment building, separate to the main hotel. Firstly, excellent service at check in, prompt professional and allowed us in early, check out was just as good. The room itself (Piccadilly) was much larger than expected, well appointed with a comfy sofa bed, full kitchen with accessories, stylish bathroom, washer/dryer & comfortable main bed. The...

I arrived last Sat afternoon with a lot of good aniticipation about this place. I'd seen the photos on the website and was impressed by the rationgs from others. I was staying alone for NFL weekend. When I arrived I was greeted by a friendly face, seemingly polish young lady with a lovely smile. I was then given my key...

This was my third stay at Vancouver Studios and everything and everyone was just as pleasant and comfortable and welcoming as before. I really wish I had discovered this place 10-15 years ago, I enjoy my time here so much. Arriving from North America, you do show up well before checkin, but freshen up in the ground floor powder room...

Stayed 5 nights in early October. Good location in Bayswater very near Hyde Park with lots of shops, restaurants and tube stations nearby. We had a quiet & comfortable double room over the courtyard. The room was small but there was enough space with a table, 2 chairs, kitchette and ensuite bathroom. Kitchette was well equiped so we could prepare...

Last week, my husband and I spent 5 nights at Vancouver Studios in London. This was the second time I had stayed there, and I wasn't disappointed. The rooms are small---but they are very modern and clean. And--the price is right, especially for the location, which is in Bayswater, close to a tube station. The staff was friendly and helpful....

Ditto on all the good things reviewers have said. Some more useful info: Very short walks to Bayswater and Queensway stations. They are very different lines and connections so you can go just about anywhere. We walked from Paddington station to VS's with wheeled luggage. It's about 15 minutes. Easy. Everyone is doing it. Take Heathrow Express from Heathrow to...

A boutique hotel in a nice area of London. We had a studio with kitchenette facilities. Friendly helpful staff and a quaint charm. The owners have maintained the original ambience as much as possible. There is a period lounge and a restful garden you can enjoy if smokers aren't present. The only downside on the premises is that that the...

My girlfriend and I stayed at this charming hotel for 1 night for her birthday. The hotel is based minutes from Bayswater underground so is very convenient to get to central locations in London. The room was quiet, bright and clean and was very well appointed with modern fittings while still maintaining the classic old charm of the hotel. We...

The location was great! The front desk people were friendly and helpful. The small bed room had a straw rug which was not allergy friendly. The bedspread was not clean. The common parlor was very musty. After reading the reviews I expected better.

Staying in Notting Hill

Neighborhood Profile
Notting Hill
As West London's friskiest corner, Notting Hill more than manages to retain plenty of the same appeal that's brought the affluent area so much worldwide attention. In this attractive cobblestoned neighborhood, a delectable variety of eateries, independent shops, galleries and street vendors offer a delightful window into how to live the good life in London, with each presenting visitors with an experience that's a little more idiosyncratic and endearing than the last. Travelers looking to forage for antiques should be sure to visit the Portobello Road Market on Saturdays, the largest antiques market in the United Kingdom.
