“Great location and value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2014

My husband and I stayed in this quaint hotel in a perfect location. It is true that it is compact, but was clean, and a great value. The shower is very small, and the bed is a little short (my husband who is 6'2" had a little difficulty because his feet hit the foot board), however, we would go back. The only problem was that while the weather was cool enough to cool the room, and there is a fan, our room, #19, had 2 buildings that blocked the flow of air from coming in. So I would ask for a different room in the future. As with any hotel, location-location-location and this place has it. Right around the corner from 2 tube stations, a few great pubs, and a lot of eating options. Walking distance to Kensington, Hyde Park and Kensington Park.

Front desk staff were very helpful.

Unlike some others who wrote reviews, we had no noise issues at all.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that when you open the windows is not blocked by buildings for air flow. Our room...

My husband, 2 kids (6 and 10) and I stayed in apartment #3 Aug. 2014 and the layout was perfect for us. The apartment is very clean and modern. The kitchen, laundry room and bathroom were all well stocked. It was very quiet, yet close to the tube and easy to get around. The beds were very comfortable.

Room Tip: Room #3 was great.

A real home from home! Yes, the single studio may be compact but it really is like a home from home. The kitchen unit was handy, the bed was very comfortable and the furnishings were tasteful. Certainly made the best use of limited space. Front desk staff very helpful. Great location too.

Room Tip: If you're a light sleeper (as I am), request a room which overlooks the back of the hotel rather...

The Vancouver Studios were furnished very nicely, the bed was extremely comfortable. Unfortunately, it is the noisiest place I have ever stayed in. We had a studio facing the road and found it very hard to sleep or even watch tv due to the high level of noise, also the building itself was extremely noisy with doors slamming and banging from other guests constantly. The DVD player in the tv didn't work, the shower is so small you can hardly bend over to pick up soap when you drop it. Great location though and had laundry facilities which was good. No lift though for those with luggage you have to struggle up flights of stairs. Staff were very friendly and helpful which was nice, but as a travel consultant would not recommend to my clients.

Room Tip: Stay at the back of the hotel away from the road

We enjoyed our one night stay here. Front desk staff was very pleasant and welcoming. To our surprise we were upgraded to a balcony room on the first floor. Unfortunately it was rainy so we couldn't enjoy the balcony overlooking the street! Room was clean and comfortable-had a couch and table with 2 chairs. Table was a bit rickety. 5 minute walk to Bayswater tube station.

Before arriving I heard the rooms were small so it wasn't a concern when I got there. Fantastic location and easy to get around site seeing via the tube or buses. Staff extremely nice and rates very affordable, best price compared to other hotels in the Notting Hill/Bayswater area. Rooms were on the small side however very comfortable, definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Try and get a room back of the hotel as you can here the noise on the street during the night from t...
