We stayed at this Hotel / Appartments in March 2007 just a week after it first opened. We got transfered in from another hotel after they double booked us. Set in an exclusive part of Bayswater, 10 minutes walk from Queensway and bayswater underground, this hotel does not look at all like a hotel on the ouside, infact when we pulled up outside i thought it was the wrong address due to there being no sign but i was pleased to find this not the case. The lobby is a welcoming room with comfortable sofas and what looked like an original tiled fireplace which did set the tone of things to come. Olivier, the manager made us very welcome and he is always open to ideas on improvements. The hotel is more like lots of mini appartments than a hotel and all facilities are based in the room. These were equipped with a full kitchenette consisting of among other things a kettle, hob, fridge, microwave and sink. The rooms also contained wall mounted plasma screens with a variaty of channels. There was also a nicely presented en-suite.
The hotel does not have a resturant but they were looking of having facilities available for food orders to be brought to the hotel if required. Failing that we ate breakfast at the bayswater cafe which was on the main road by Hyde Park, about 5 minutes walk. It doesn't look much but the food is great value ( huge plate of scrambed egg and toast £2 ( without salad). they also do fresh juices. There are plenty of resturants on Queensway to choose from.
This type of thing is probably more suited to the executive staying for a week or so as we were doing a theatre trip and didn't stay within the hotel much but i would highly recommend this if you want a hotel that is that bit more exclusive.
