La Suite West - Hyde Park
Ranked #476 of 1,077 Hotels in London
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Stayed here Feb 22nd-24th. First impressions were fabulous, very well kept and clean.

Arrival and check-in:
Reception area is the first thing to wow you, from the open fire to the staffs uniforms, all very modern yet 'different'. Staff warm and welcoming, let us check in 30 mins early, no problem.

Room:
Yes the rooms are on the small side but this is described on the website, but personally i have stayed in smaller.. There was walking spac around the bed, a desk and chair and a armchair, not cramped at all, tea and coffee making facilities fridge and sink. Large shower with underfloor heating which is great on a cold morning! Wardrobe space more than adequate, with safe! Four poster bed, DAB radio, lovely touch-sensitive lights, plenty or plug sockets/charging points, large tv with freeview, heating/aircon easy to use. Bed was turned down while we were out and water and chocolates brought into the room. Best shower i have ever had in a hotel, rainfall shower with hand held aswell, gets really hot too!

Service:
Staff attentive and friendly, smiley and genuine! Ask them for anything and it is not a problem.

Location:
Located one street off Bayswater Road (running alongside Hyde Park), Bayswater is the nearest Tube stop which is the green line, its around a 20-30 mins walk to Marble Arch. Took us 40 Mins but we strolled slowly with a coffee! From centre of London (Drury lane/Covent garden) it cost us £13 in a taxi back. Few good pubs around the area and lots of lovely restaurants. If you want to be at the centre of nightlife of sights don't stay here, if you want a nice hotel, in a lovely convenient location stay here!

Food:
Didn't eat there so cant comment. But seemed a decent price!

Overall if you want a five star hotel but don't plan on spending a mass amount if time in your room book this place! I imagine the better the room the more space your going to get!

Room Tip: Room 25 and 24 have 'back garden' type views and are rather low. If you want a nice view upg...

Just back from a three night stay at this hotel. We found it a bit strange at first, difficult to find doors etc as hallways very dark and in keeping with the theme of the hotel your way wasn't clearly marked, this did not take from the hotel at all. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was delicious, the best inclusive breakfast I personally have had in a hotel. Very well located close to two tube stations and within walking distance from Portobello, Notting Hill & Hyde Park. Rooms were small but sufficient, bathroom & shower delightful. Overall we were delighted to have chosen this hotel.

We stayed at the La Suite West just for one night.
The service on arrival was excellent. On inspecting our room it was very small but due to being on the basement level we could hear the underground.
We requested to move and the staff were very happy to move us to a higher room.

The beds were comfy and room facilities good.

We would stay again as location was good with underground walking distance and with a small walk Oxford Street.

Room Tip: Above ground floor and facing the street.

It was really nice and the staff were lovely. The room was really comfortable and spacious. Bathroom was lovely with underfloor heating and the shower was amazing. Felt like a waterfall on your head :) the restaurant was nice but not what I expected from reading the website.. The food was tasty and reasonably priced but not in keeping with the quality of the hotel.. Would use again.

Stayed there for a couple of nights in December, very modern, and well equipped rooms. The decor is predominantly dark wood, as long as you are not afraid of the dark it's great. The staff is very attentive. Breakfast was great. The hotel is close to everything, walking distance to one of our favorite restaurants in London, Mall Tavern. Grocery store and many restaurants within a 3 minute walk.

Definitely a repeater.

The hotel is just 3 minutes from the tube station bayswater or five minutes from queensway. We met a warm welcome with an efficient check in proces.Afterwards a staff member guided us to our room when also taking our luggage. The room (no 314) was situated on the back side of the hotel (some noise of ac units outside). In comparison with other boutique hotels in large cities we found our room very spacious, with a ktichenette, two lounge chairs and a small table to sit down. The bedding........ in just one word wow !! excellent !! Extra services as two bottles of water provided by the hotel and a free newspaper we appreciated it very much. Bayswater road, which is a minute walk from the hotel has lots of small restaurants and some shops for groceries. We experienced this as a welcome change of the crowded inner city ! Breakfast was ok but consists not of a buffet this is maybe a welcome option for much guests. Main conclusion value for your money !!

Room Tip: ask for a room as high as possible and at the front side (any street noise isn't avoidable but y...

Enjoyment of any stay in this hotel will be dictated by your appreciation of black as a decorative feature. Its prevalence renders the accommodation extremely dark, with tension and foreboding the primary emotions evoked, and these exacerbated by the employment of wooden grates instead of wardrobe doors, referencing, apparently, prison bars. The white parts of the building naturally appear rather shabby, as they show all the dirt. My room totally lacked windows, which enhanced the sensation of claustrophobia. I like a light room, so did not enjoy staying here. That's a matter of preference, though; my partner found it just to his taste.

The ground floor rooms do not benefit from hot water until the evening. This is not acceptable and is the main reason for the poor rating. The taps run a cool luke-warm, not suitable for washing. This was explained as normal for the ground floor.

Pros:
- Very large bathroom and good-sized bedroom
- Very numerous and attentive waiting staff
- Close to tube stops (Bayswater and Queensway)
- Very nice tea!
- Sink in room for kettle and cups (Room 18)
- Two gigantic TVs in room
- Complimentary newspaper

Cons:
- Extremely ugly decor
- No hot water
- Much noise emitting from technical unit and constant drain outflow in internal courtyard, and tube trains beneath the hotel
- No breakfast buffet; everything a la carte
- Breakfast extremely slow to arrive
- Metal grid by which room 18 is accessed poses health hazard to ladies in heels
- Request for quiet room on second floor and with window not respected
- Room not cleaned during stay; turndown service only

Room Tip: Do not accept a room on the ground floor. Noisy.
