We stayed four nights at the Troy in February. Check in was quick and we were given a twin room on the fifth floor - Rm 507. The room was spotlessly clean, as was the whole hotel, and pretty spacious, especially for London. Shower was powerful and plenty of hot water, shower gel, soap and shampoo were replenished daily. Loo paper was better quality than we have at home - very thick! This room is at the side or rear of the hotel, so not much of a view, but was nice and quiet (apart from a couple in the next room who liked to sing very loudly in the shower each morning!). Loads of storage space, six wooden clothes hangers, a safe, fan and hairdryer. There was also a kettle and tea and coffee sachets, a small fridge and a tv (ours didn't seem to be working properly when we tried it, but we didn't bother to report it, as we spent so little time in the room, it didn't seem worth it)
Breakfast was basic but nice, coffee good and delicious rolls with eggs and cheese, so enough to keep you going. A problem with a flickering bathroom light bulb that we reported on the way out one morning had been sorted when we returned later in the day - very efficient.
This hotel is only a few minutes walk from Queensway tube station, on the central line, so very handy for getting around London. Bayswater station is just a bit further down, giving access to the circle line too. Also very close to Hyde Park, from where you can walk to several tourist attractions. Loads of shops and restaurants near the tube station, and a nice pub, the Swan, in the other direction, just before Lancaster Gate tube station.
When we checked out, we were allowed to leave our bags in a secure locked room until later in the afternoon, so we could make the most of our last day. Staff were pleasant and helpful.
The only thing stopping this getting five out of five was the beds - they were fairly comfortable, but very creaky and noisy, so much so that they sometimes woke us up when we turned over in the night - they could do with being replaced.
Other than this, we found the Troy to be a reasonably priced, very clean and comfortable hotel, perfectly situated to explore London and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone as a great base for a trip to the capital.
