Small Rooms but Excellent LocationPosted 7-Mar-2014
Pros: Location, location, location.
Cons: Continental breakfast was expensive (I think 7GBP). For that price I expect a Full English breakfast.
Location: Lots of shops but the only tourist attraction close by (that I can think of) was Kensington Gardens.
This is a very nice hotel in an excellent location. The "main drag" is a two minute walk and has a great variety of shops, pubs, and places to eat. The hotel itself was nice and although the room was very small the bathroom was very nice and relatively spacious. Perhaps the best feature of the location was proximity to tube stops on two different lines (Bayswater and Queensway), which made it really easy to get to where you want to go. Having beautiful Kensington Gardens just across the main road a the top (Bayswater Road) was an added bonus. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Great LocationPosted 23-Feb-2014
Pros: Friendly staff, modern clean décor.
Cons: A small bar would be helpful-only a vending machine in Reception.
Location: Close to Marble Arch, Hyde Park and Oxford Street. Quickly into Theatre land. A tube change needed for Westminster and the South Bank attractions.
The hotel was in Sherlock Holmes type housing surrounding a grassy square just off Queensway High Street. We were on the top (4th. Floor) whilst rooms went down to basement level. The whole décor was fresh and modernist. Spotlessly clean reception in a modern tiled floor area, a super modern lift to each floor and card entry keys to your room. Our twin room was a little small but thought had been given to the furniture layout and modern lighting. The room overlooked the garden square whilst the bathroom had under floor heating, a decent basin and great shower cubicle. Water was at the temperature you required. There was a combination electronic safe in the wardrobe-very handy. Breakfast was rather basic but reflected the price of £7 (cereals, cheese, ham, croissants, pastries, boiled eggs, yoghurt, fruit salad (tinned), toast, orange juice, tea coffee etc). All staff were very helpful, including the breakfast team and Reception. The hotel lacked a little atmosphere and was functional but I guess that's its purpose being so close to two tube stations (Bayswater 3 minutes, Queensway 6 mins) walking serving the central or circle or district lines between them. We walked from t he hotel to Oxford Street via the nearby Hyde Park in 30 minutes and caught the tube back in 5 minutes!

Great, clean hotel in prime positionPosted 17-Feb-2014
Great experience staying here, very friendly and helpful hotel staff. Clean room, with good room servicing. Perfect location for venturing around London, Buckingham Palace and Hyde Park a hop step and a jump away and the tube a few minutes walk down the road, leading to Oxford Circus and busier areas.

First London VisitPosted 17-Feb-2014
This hotel was close to the Bayswater tube stop. Whitely is nearby and easy to identify. Our room was a small double. And small it was. just about enough room for the bed! But it included a private bathroom (also quite small). For our purposes, we were out much of the day and in the hotel mostly to sleep. the staff were friendly and responsive. For the price and convenient location we were very satisfied.
Pros: CLEAN and MODERN
We were at the bottom...DON'T let them stick you down there.... First off the room was freezing and we couldn't figure out how to turn the heater on. When we called to ask for someone to walk down literally five steps to assist they said no you can just turn the radiator on and that was it. WE STILL couldnt figure it out so finally they sent someone down to then realize it was broken. (they would have realized that the first time around if customer service played a roll). Eventually two hours later when we were getting ready to leave the maintenance man fixed it. then we were pretty much gone all day and night and only slept there for about 5 hours to be woken up to people stomping all over our head. We didn't have to check out till 10:30 which was the earlist I have ever seen for a hotel but we decided to just leave because it was so loud no one was going to get sleep anyways. besides that the place was very clean and the staff was friendly for the few times we interacted.

London House HotelPosted 11-Feb-2014
Pros: Modern, bright, nice locality and reasonably priced.
Cons: Better fitting blinds to stop light from the front of the hotel getting in. Make hypoallergenic bedding easily available feather allergy is common.
Location: Good location in Bayswater, tube and train nearby and Hyde Park a short walk away.
This hotel is modern, minimal and the reception area is bright and clean. I liked the look of the room and it had nice windows that overlooked the garden. We checked in at 3pm and as I had meetings to attend didn't return until 11pm. It wasn't until I was almost ready for bed at midnight that I pulled back the sheets and found that it was a goose feather duvet and pillows. As I have an allergy to feathers I asked for hollow fibre replacements. The only staff who were on shift were able to source a quilt but unable to find pillows and suggested I sleep on one of the tiny decorative square cushions. I said that I wasn't keen to do that but was told that I would have to wait for housekeeping to sort it out in the morning (there was little point in this as I was checking out at 10am). I was brought a clean pillowcase but spent a terrible night trying to sleep on a hard and uncomfortably small cushion. I spent the next few days in agony with a stiff neck and shoulder. It was a dreadful night and I slept fitfully. The room had drape style blinds which although black-out didn't cover the whole window and let in bright white light from the outside which kept me awake as it was shining in my face. The bathroom sink was tiny and the shelf above made it impossible to rinse out my mouth after brushing and also made filling the kettle very difficult.
