“Disappointed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2013

This was our first night in London. First morning the showerhead fell off taking a shower. They did fix it. Our room was fine, the female staff person at the front desk was friendly. The male staff was okay. However, the location was great. We were visiting our son and he was living not far from this hotel. I did love the area.

Room Tip: Our room had steps not sure all do, May want to ask if there are mobility issues. I liked our room...

Arrived in London found our way to the hotel, via a short walk from Bayswater station. Where we were met by friendly and helpful staff. Informed us of what was of interest in the area, particularly short walk to Portabello Rd and all the shops and stalls selling anything and everything.

The room was comfortable though a little noisy as it was on ground floor facing main road. Central heating was a little too efficient for us as the room did feel to become stuffy. The room also came with breakfast to start our exploration of London.

Nice location in a quiet neighborhood. There were lots of small shops, restaurants, and pubs in the nearby, and it was within easy walking distance of two Tube stations. The room was very small and very basic, but clean and quiet. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast was a bit limited and the breakfast room in the basement was always crowded.

Booked a Standard Double for two persons. The room was very very small however the next morning after mentioning it to the desk person she readily offered to change our room for something bigger. The remaining six days were perfect. I cannot commend the staff enough. They were helpful, knowledgeable and never too busy to stop and try to assist. The room was spotless as were all the common areas of the Hotel. The Breakfast was wonderful and the food was fresh and tasty. The location is about as good as it gets....easy access to most attractions and shopping areas. Kudos to all the staff who went out of the way to ensure our stay was was a memorable one. I would recommend this Hotel in a heart beat.

Room Tip: We had a room downstairs which we found to be quiet and perfect for us.

I visited this hotel for a one night stay and shared a twin room with my mum for a weekend shopping trip.

The hotel was in a great position within easy access of the tube. Great for shopping in Westfield Shopping Centre as well! The room was small but very clean and had everything we needed. The staff were extremely friendly and welcoming. There was only one thing that let it down which was the breakfast! There wasn't much to choose from and the quality was poor but other than that I could not fault the hotel.

I only stayed 1 night, but I would return & recommend for single/couples traveling. Although a bit on the small size, the room was great: clean, great location (close to 2 tube stops), & the staff were very helpful. The area is safe & is surrounded by shops.
I would stay there again.

I enjoyed my stay at the New Linden Hotel. The neighbourhood was quiet though just a few minutes' walk from the very busy stretch of Bayswater/Queensway. On arrival, I was assigned a room in the basement, and when I requested for a room on a higher floor as I was a light sleeper, the management kindly agreed to my request. While the room and toilet were very small, it suited my needs perfectly. Shower was good and the room was sufficiently warm. The room was also near the staircase and away from the lifts, so it was much quieter.

Breakfast was an okay continental spread, the selection could have been more extensive and of better quality. The breakfast room can get pretty crowded from 8am on if the hotel is fully booked, so go earlier if you can. Otherwise, you may have to stand and wait.

Staff were polite and helpful. I will definitely consider staying at the New Linden again for future trips to London.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the higher floors, away from the elevators. Most guests will use the elevators if...
