    Good location, good prices but the rooms are too small, Next to two underground stations and to a very nice pub. Best for single person. Walking distance to Notting Hill, Hyde Park, Portobello Market and even to Royal Albert Hall or Science Museum.

    Dear Carina, thank you for your feedback. We do apologise for the space constraints in the rooms, but please do not hesitate to inform us of how we can further improve on our services to provide a better staying experience. Best regards.

    Are all of the family rooms 1 double and 2 singles or are some 2 doubles? We have booked for April and require the former set up.

    I'm not sure. I booked a room with 2 singles. You may be able to request a double instead of the 2 singles. They are very accommodating when possible.

    We booked a shared transfer through Viator. The driver met us at the airport and went directly to the hotel. Cost was about $45 for two. After that long flight it was worth the money.

    Paying for the hotel through a 3rd party site, and it says the hotel will require a 50 deposit for each day, is this required?
