First impression is medium. Reception is small but looks clean and well organised. Staff a bit more dubious. Speaks mostly Spanish, and start talking on the phone in the middle of checking me in. I do not appreciate taking a back seat to the phone. Only one lift is working, which causes some congestion.
Then the room, the tiniest room i have ever hadthe misfortune to be in. For one person it is claustrophobic, for two ridicoulous. The bathroom is equally tiny.
However if you only need a place to sleep in central London, for a day or two, you can survive. You just have to be inventive. I did not unpack anything except my toiletries, and put my suitcase in the wardrobe, which could barely be opened, without hitting the end of the bed, but there was nowhere else, since there was no luggage rack or floorspace.
The location is very good, in central Bayswater, but you can hear the Tube at all times.
The breakfast is not worth it, you can get better at a cafe, for less money.
