Safe locationPosted 23-Apr-2014
Stayed for 1 night for dining and concert at the Royal Albert Halll, just a short tube journey with a 10 min walk at the other end. Walking distance to Kensington Palace/Gardens. 45 mins walk to V & A Museum. Convenient location in a safe area for our stay.

Perfect for my purposes - preflight stay.Posted 21-Apr-2014
Booked a small standard room for a one night stay prior to my LHR flight. Was very small but very clean and totally fine for my needs - good location, nice shower. Reception staff were lovely. Easy walk to Bayswater Tube. I would certainly stay there again. Recommended for sure.

Nice hotel in nice area. Good transport.Posted 16-Apr-2014
This is the second year i stayed at this hotel while doing the London marathon. Single room was basic but clean. It was very handy to the underground station. Staff were very friendly and professional. My only issue would be that my room overlooked the street at the back which at times was a bit noisy.

Great location, comfy beds, helpful staffPosted 11-Apr-2014
We stayed 4 nights and the hotel was so conveniently located. Within walking distance to so many tourist attractions and about a 3 minute walk to the tube. We organised some tours with the staff who were more than helpful booking them on our behalf. There are so many restaurants nearby you have the choice of almost any cuisine. The Chinese was fantastic. We stayed in the basement rooms which were very quiet and we had a window that opened out onto greenery. Highly recommended.

Pros: Reception staff very helpful. Location, good.
Cons: This is a no-frills hotel so its not clear what they could improve upon without raising the rates.
Location: Near Kensington Gardens, Hyde Park. Boris's Bikes available at both. Warning: No Helmets! Bayswater and Queensway Tube stops very close to hotel.
My single room was tiny. The bed sank in the middle. On the plus side, the reception staff was excellent and helpful. Location was good.. near 2 tube stops and very easy to get around. This is a bargain hotel, very bare bones.

Very small roomPosted 4-Apr-2014
The location was good as it was only minutes from Bayswater station. The room was way too small. I didnt realize the the room I booked was so small. It said double bed but it was more like a single bed plus a half. My husband and I barely fit. Other Other hotels that offer double bed are true double beds. The room itself was extremely small. Had to open one luggage at a time because there was no room. Also couldn't fit more than one person in the bathroom. Barely can fit one person! No room to turn around in the bathroom. Very disappointed with the size of the room. Definitely not for 2 people.

I spent a week at London HousePosted 30-Mar-2014
Pros: In the Bayswater neighborhood are many restaurants and shops. The hotel is north of huge Kensington Gardens, open to the public for walking. Free WiFi
Cons: I was in room 408, directly across from the elevator, where people talked while waiting for the elevator. The second day I bought earplugs.
Location: The hotel is north of huge Kensington Gardens, open to the public and a wonderful place to walk. Convenient to two Tube stops, Queensway & Bayswater.
London House is in Bayswater, a nice neighborhood in western London. Bayswater Road is an old Roman road. The location is five minutes from Queensway Road, where there are two Tube stops, Queensway and Bayswater. The lobby and rooms are modern. The staff, none of whom seem to be British, are friendly. I had a “Garden View” room. Americans may be used to thinking of gardens in back of the house. Gardens in London are on the street side, so a room facing the street sees Kensington Gardens, rectangle of trees and lawn that is privately owned. Unfortunately, I was on the 4th floor (British 4th, American 5th) and a projecting ledge blocked seeing the lower half of the garden. Warning to Americans: a British continental breakfast is not an American one. The “continental breakfast” is European Continental breakfast: sliced meats, cheese, cereal, and limited fruit for a high price. Queensway is one block over with dozens of eateries. Croissant and coffee is less than half the price at Prêt à Manger and a full English breakfast is about the same price at Art Café and Bella Italia on Queensway. The bathroom has a light over the sink (press left panel hard) and 120/220 outlets on the right for a razor. I liked eight electric outlets in the room. Twice the television came on a little after 6 a.m., awakening me. Front desk had no idea why. Be sure the taxi knows the address is 81 Kensington Gardens. I was left at Kensington Gardens Hotel and walked to London House.
